We knew Hulu Plus was coming to Xbox 360, but Microsoft didn't exactly pound the drums before announcing it would launch for everyone on Friday. Eventually, Hulu Plus will only be available for those with both Xbox Live Gold and Hulu Plus subscriptions, but that's not the case for the first week.

Major Nelson, Xbox 360's most visible face to the community, revealed today Jack Link's Beef Jerky would be sponsoring an entire free week of Hulu Plus access for all XBL members--Silver and Gold. 

That's cool, Jack Links, but I don't like beef jerky. I'll take a week of watchin' Cleopatra 2525, though.

I'm guessing that's not exactly true.

#25 Posted by Pandasaurus (115 posts) -

it really annoys me that i pay just as much as Americans for xbox live, but only get to access half the features- where is my £40 a year going exactly? 


#26 Posted by Mikewrestler5 (602 posts) -

Beef jerky is seriously one of the best snacks in the world.

#27 Posted by ch3burashka (5017 posts) -

Beef Jerky is overpriced as fuck.

#28 Posted by Wandrecanada (402 posts) -

You really need to stop saying "All Xbox Live members" when you mean all US Xbox Live members.  This is Netflix all over again.

#29 Posted by Jeffsekai (7026 posts) -

WILL THIS BE COMING TO CANADA?! IF NOT WILL I GET CHARGED LESS? NO? OKAY

#30 Posted by Wandrecanada (402 posts) -
@Hardtarget:   Yeah exactly my friend.

Does Hulu Plus still have ads? if so, I'll pass

#32 Posted by RageExpressive (50 posts) -

Praise MS

#33 Posted by BonOrbitz (2175 posts) -

Get ready for a shit load of "Messin' with Sasquatch" ads!

#34 Posted by elcalavera (341 posts) -

Too bad they hate Europe. Argh.

#35 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3021 posts) -

Time to marathon the Criterion Collection.

#36 Posted by PLWolf (920 posts) -

Get Netflix, people. Don't bother with Hulu. If I want that many ads, I'll watch regular TV.

US only.  Licensing rights make it almost impossible to have a service like this in the UK or most of the rest of the world, unfortunately.
#38 Posted by Protonguy (305 posts) -

Meh. Living in Canada the PC + Proxy is your friend with Hulu.
Hulu Plus is a ripoff as it is so don't feel you're missing out on that.

#39 Posted by Palaeomerus (354 posts) -

Preferring Cleopatra 2525 to beef jerky is illogical. Also insane.

I thought that you don't get ads because it's Hulu Plus and you pay for it...?
#41 Posted by pseudomyxoma (108 posts) -

Xbox needs to stop using all when it's not true.  Unless my subscription in Canada doesn't matter.

#42 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

Don't you love how half of the features on Xbox Live can only be accessed by the US?

You still get ads. I tried it out when it was offered on the PS3. Immediately killed it and got Netflix, never looked back.

I agree. I would rather them just send everybody a bunch of beef jerky.
#48 Posted by Winsord (1166 posts) -

Not in the US, so, sad panda'd.

#49 Posted by PLWolf (920 posts) -
