Hulu Coming to Xbox Live? [RUMOR]

Hulu Coming to Xbox Live? [RUMOR]

Microsoft reportedly has a juicy reveal up its sleeve for the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo mid-June: Inside sources say Hulu is coming to the Xbox Live service on the Xbox 360 console.

Gear Live reports that in addition to Project Natal details, Microsoft will be unveiling the Hulu service coming to XBLA at this year’s E3. Similar to the way Netflix can stream your Instant Queue if you’re an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, Hulu would be accessible as well — reportedly for a subscription fee.

There’s no information on what the subscription cost might be, but we do know that Hulu has been looking into a subscription model for its content for some time. It will also be interesting to see if Apple will beat Microsoft to the punch with a subscription-based Hulu iPad app at the upcoming WWDC event.

For now it’s still officially in the rumor stages, but Microsoft’s Media Briefing at E3 kicks off at 10 a.m. June 14 and we’ll be all ears to find out if and how much the Hulu integration might set you back. Would you be willing to pay a subscription fee to access Hulu on your Xbox 360?

And noted, since when would Netflix being red, be replaced with Hulu? Not sure of the legitimacy of this, however it’s a good mock up if not real.
