Hulu Plus makes its way to Sony Dash

Sony's Dash, a 7-inch touch-screen device that includes access to more than 1,000 free apps, adds Hulu Plus content at $9.99 a month.

Starting today, Sony Dash Personal Internet Viewer users can start watching "thousands" of movies and shows from ABC, Fox, NBC, and others on Hulu Plus. To access that content, customers will need to pay Hulu $9.99 a month.

Sony's Dash features a 7-inch touch screen, and includes access to more than 1,000 free apps that allow users to access news, media, and other content. It retails for about $199.

With the addition of the Dash, Hulu is doing its part to expand access to its service. Currently, Hulu Plus is available on Sony's PlayStation 3 , some HDTVs, and Apple's iOS devices. In addition, it will be coming to Roku , the Xbox 360, Boxee , and TiVo Premiere at some point.

Speculation abounds over how much longer Hulu Plus will be offered for $9.99 per month. Last month, a report from All Things Digital claimed Hulu is considering dropping the price for its service from $9.99 per month to $4.95. Such a move might make sense. Netflix currently offers far more content for just $8.99 per month. Plus, complaints over Hulu's decision to include ads in its paid service hasn't won it many supporters.
