As it continues its strategy of making its over the top (OTT) content available from as many platforms as possible on every Internet-connected device, Hulu is adding Hulu Plus to the TiVo premier platform.
The deal will see the subscription OTT service available on TiVo Premiere retail boxes opening up access to thousands of hours of Hulu Plus content through a separate subscription fee of $7.99 per month.
The deal comes only weeks after Hulu extended its offering to the Xbox LIVE platform with Xbox LIVE Gold members gaining access to the Hulu library of movies and TV shows.
Commented in a blog post Hulu Director of Product Management Rob Wong: “It’s now possible to check out a hit TV show you just heard about, catch up on a series you may have missed, watch every episode of many popular shows currently on air, uncover old favourites, and discover high-quality movies and documentaries. We’re excited to be a part of TiVo’s one-box solution to bring the world’s premium content to you.”
To kick-start the deal, TiVo is offering a 6-month free trial to those who purchase a TiVo Premiere from a retailer or Tivo.com and TiVo subscribers who already subscribe to Hulu Plus can begin accessing their account with no additional charges.
