Hulu Plus won’t make rumored May 24th debut

Hulu's rumored May 24th "Hulu Plus" subscription looks like it'll miss its predicted debut, according to sources speaking with AllThingsD.  The company is apparently planning a $9.95 monthly subscription package which would allow access to a back catalog of streaming content; however, "people familiar with the company" are now saying Hulu Plus is unlikely to be ready in time for a launch next Monday.

It's unclear whether the delay - if accurate - is a technical one or down to ongoing negotiations with content providers.  According to rumors coming out of the company, Fox, ABC and NBC - who jointly own Hulu - are roughly decided on what subscribers will get for their money, but exact details aren't public at this stage.  Nonetheless, the basic Hulu service is expected to continue to be free of charge.
