Hulu Plus app launched for Nintendo 3DS

Cast your mind back to 2011, when stream 'em up Hulu had just announced it was bringing its premium Plus service to Nintendo 3DS, and we were so young and beautiful. It was supposed to launch by the end of the year, then didn't. Only two years late, the app has unexpectedly launched, bringing all sorts of TV shows to your pocket.

The app uses the big screen to show video, letting you control it and browse around from the smaller at the same time, Hulu explains in a blog post. The app also has an optional Kids Lock, so parents can keep their sprogs within the Hulu Kids section and away from undesirable things. And as Hulu will, it remembers where you get up into episodes, so you can continue watching across devices. It works the shiny new 2DS too, naturally.

You do need Hulu Plus membership, which costs $7.99 per month, to use the app. Hulu does offer a free one-week trial so you can check it out.

The Wii Hulu Plus app, which was announced at the same time, launched way back in February 2012, and it landed on Wii U in November 2012. Goodness knows what distracted Hulu so much when it came to this app, other than watching Project Runway and Face Off, of course.
