Hulu May Come to Xbox Live…For a Price

huluHulu is one of the miracles of the internet. It’s got all kinds of streaming TV shows and movies, many of which you can’t get on Netflix Watch Instantly. Because of that, Hulu on Xbox Live would be brilliant, and I would likely drive my 9th 360 to its death by leaving it on all the time if it were there. Anyway, rumors abound that Hulu is showing its face in new builds of the Xbox Dashboard, and Gear Live says it will be one of Microsoft’s big announcements at E3.

1up, though, has a source who says there are still some rights issues that need to be dealt with, and Engadget says they’ve heard using Hulu on Xbox Live will come at the cost of some sort of fee. If that last bit is the case, color me less excited about this. Maybe we’ll find out something at Microsoft’s E3 press conference on the 14th, but if rights really are still an issue today, I doubt pricing will be mentioned.

@jhoni We don’t know yet, but we’ll post more details when they emerge, whether at E3 or some other time.
