Nintendo Brings Hulu Plus To The Wii

Wii owners and Hulu Plus fans can finally rejoice as Nintendo has announced a partnership with Hulu to bring the service to the Nintendo Wii console starting today! 

“Wii offers the most entertainment fun for everyone in the family, with an impressive selection of streaming movies and TV shows in addition to an unparalleled lineup of games that can’t be played anywhere else,” said Tony Elison, Nintendo of America’s senior director and general manager of Network Business. “The Wii console is the hub of the living room, and with the addition of Hulu Plus, millions of households now have even more options for streaming premium TV shows and movies.”

“We want to be everywhere, on every screen where people want to watch their favorite shows and discover new ones on their own schedule. Wii is not only one of the most important entertainment devices in the living room, but one of the most heavily anticipated and requested platforms by users and subscribers. Teaming up with Nintendo gives millions of households across the U.S. an immediate way to access some of their favorite current season shows on-demand in their living room through Hulu Plus,” said Pete Distad, VP of Marketing and Distribution at Hulu.

You can expect to see Hulu Plus listed in the Wii Shop Channel for download.  If you don’t have a Hulu Plus account, you can sign up for a free two week trial.

Nintendo has also announced that Hulu Plus will be available for 3DS owners as well at some point later this year.
