Hulu launches subscription service

Hulu has announced the launch of its Plus service, offering access to more episodes on more devices — including the iPhone, iPad and PlayStation 3 — for $9.99 a month.

But somewhat surprisingly, the subscription fee does not do away with the intermittent ads.

What? We have to pay for access to our favorite shows and watch ads? What is this, cable? Kind of, actually.

Hulu ranked second behind Google/YouTube for the number of videos watched in May with 1.2 billion, according to comScore.

Will you subscribe, even if you already have a Netflix subscription?
