Xbox E3 announcement: Hulu?

TV streaming service headed to Xbox Live, claims report

An Xbox Live version of TV and movie streaming service, Hulu will make up one of Microsoft's big E3 announcements.

That's according to the "very reliable source" of tech site, Gear Live, which reports that Microsoft is set to unveil the Xbox Live version of the service this month.

Apparently, similarly to the other US-only streaming service, Netflix, Hulu will require a subscription fee to use.

It's all guess work at this point as to how much it'll cost exactly, though it's been speculated that Xbox Live users will have to pay for access time (a month, quarter) using Microsoft Points.

Hulu currently allows streaming of TV shows and movies from NBC, Fox, ABC, and many other networks and studios. Even if this does turn out to be true, we reckon the chances of it coming to Europe are minimal.

We'll contact Microsoft for comment.
