Hulu is ready to move from PC to people’s living rooms, as TiVo and Roku both have announced plans to provide access to Hulu’s Plus, a fee based service from their individual set-top boxes.
Hulu Plus, which made its debut previously this year, is available only on invitation basis.
The service is available at $9.99 a month with a more comprehensive on-demand library of TV shows in the free service from the same firm.
The library comprises 7 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy, plus 3 seasons of The Greatest American Hero.
Hulu Plus is already on portable devices such as iPad and iPhone, plus via some Internet-connected TVs and Samsung’s Blu-ray players.
Along with this, the service is available on Sony's PlayStation 3 console, and the firm is saying that the service is coming to Xbox 360 by Microsoft, in the initial part of next year.
TiVo is a well recognized name and is the pioneer of the DVR market; however, its sales have plunged in the most recent years as more people have been opting to rent DVRs from cable firms as a substitute to buying one.
