In what can only be described as a foreseeable move for Nintendo and Hulu alike, the duo has teamed up to offer Hulu Plus to Wii consoles across the United States and Japan. (Sorry international readers, Hulu hasn’t been released in any additional countries quite yet.) As an added bonus, Wii users without an existing Hulu Plus account will be given a free two-week trial account when they follow the sign-up instructions within the Hulu Plus app.
For $7.99 a month subscribers can instantly stream current episodes from shows including Modern Family, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and, my personal sunday-night-favorite, Wipe Out. Watching people make complete a**holes of themselves while being utterly bludgeoned to death by an obstacle course has never looked so shameless. While you’re there, why not check out some of The Orchard’s growing Hulu lineups, including films like The Mother of Invention, Special When Lit: A Pinball Documentary, In Deep, and Crude Independence.
