Hulu paid subs for iPad could be ready soon

Hulu's rumored paid subscription service should be ready considerably sooner than thought, a pair of sources claimed Tuesday night. The TV streaming service should be ready within the "next month or two" and at some point should involve the iPad and Xbox 360. Rates weren't discussed, but the Reuters contacts echoed views that the free web-based service would still offer newer shows while the paid version would allow for older shows and other, unspecified content.

Previous tips had put the price at $10 per month and that this might be necessary for the mobile component. The service may be available before non-web hardware is ready, but one earlier rumor had put the Xbox 360 edition's reveal as soon as E3.

Hulu, a partnership between major studios ABC/Disney, Fox and NBC, has been one of the most frequently visited web video sites in the US to date but has been under pressure to get its video to other platforms besides the desktop. It has regularly tried to discourage viewing on TV but has considered mobile an important focus, as it extends TV viewing for existing cable and satellite viewers who want to watch shows when away from home.
