Hulu Wii U
The Hulu Wii U channel is an app that streams content such as movies and TV shows to the Wii U console. Hulu offers TV shows, movies, documentaries, and other video content. The Hulu Wii U app will be available when the console launches. Unlike the Netflix Wii U app, the Hulu service will offer some free programs for streaming. For the best content though, users will have to sign up and pay a monthly subscription fee. Hulu for Wii U will support all of the features and content that’s available on other consoles and hardware devices, although the Wii U will get special attention because of its tablet controller.
Hulu Wii U features
The Hulu Wii U app will take advantage of the Wii U GamePad tablet controller and will use the secondary screen to display additional information about the program. Such information can include IMDB listings, actor info, show history, and more. Users will also be able to stream their content on the controller itself instead of the television set. Hulu for Wii U will be available at launch and will be free of charge for the basic version.
