Hulu Now Available… on the 3DS?!

It was way, way back in October 2011 that we were told the Hulu Plus service would be heading to the 3DS, but that was so long ago, most of you have probably forgotten. Heck, were we even around at that time? Feels like a century ago.

In January 2012, the word on the street was that it was “still in the works”, but naturally, since nothing came of it, no one remembered that it was supposed to happen.

Well, here we are two years later, and it’s finally here: Hulu Plus is now available to download on the 3DS eShop. If you’re an existing Hulu subscriber, the service should work for you right away once you log in. If you haven’t used this streaming service before, you can it out for free for a week—and even if you don’t want to, your kids might pester you enough to give in, if the Nintendo press release is any indication:

“Users who have a wireless broadband Internet connection can visit the Nintendo eShop to download Hulu Plus. The application will allow users to navigate using the touch screen and view thousands of television shows and movies on the go. It also brings some of the best TV shows for children – including a larger selection of Jim Henson Family titles than any other video subscription service – to the platform through the Hulu Kids hub.

Hulu Plus is yet another entertainment option on Nintendo 3DS. In addition to multiple video services like Nintendo Video and social-sharing applications like StreetPass Mii Plaza and Swapnote, users can play the entire library of more than 2,000 Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS games. Nintendo 3DS also features an extensive selection of downloadable software in the Nintendo eShop, including games, videos and applications.”

Presently, Hulu Plus is only available in the US and in Japan, for $7.99 a month.
