Hulu just announced plans to roll out its new subscription-based service starting as soon as May 24. For $9.95 a month, you'll gain access to premium content called Hulu Plus that could include the entire back catalog of popular shows like "Lost," "Glee," and "Saturday Night Live," to name a few.
The room agrees that we'd all happily pay $10 for the extra episodes, especially considering it costs that much for a monthly unlimited text messaging plan. The only visible downside to consider is the gross amount of time I already spend in Hulu's capable hands, so I'll take this opportunity to say a fond farewell to my co-workers, friends, and family. If you need me, I'll be in my room.
We're getting a lot of quality Calls From the Public, but we still need more callbacks! That's when you give us a ring at 1-866-404-CNET and say, "This is (your location) from (your name) and you're listening to The 404, the show where (insert random comment here)." It's quick, easy to do, and if it's good we'll definitely play it on the air!
For $80, you'll get 21 games, two controllers and a teeny, tiny console in September.
