Hulu Plus Could Bring Ad-Free Option to Customers, if You’re Willing to Pay for it

Considering most, if not all of the rumors about Hulu Plus came true, we're going to go ahead and point out that this one's probably going to come true, too. Especially considering the fact it's not so much of a rumor, but more of a "confirmation" from the Chief of Hulu himself, Jason Kilar. A confirmation that he's "comfortable" with the idea, that is.

Hulu Plus. Hopefully you think that has a ring to it, because with another "confirmation" from Reuters, it's looking more and more like one of the Internet's favorite media streaming websites is about to add a premium feature.

In any event, welcome to the Wednesday edition of the Daily Slash. Tonight, in the Best of R3, we've got another mysterious Motorola handset, Apple shows off a new ad, and Microsoft Mobile Office slips out of Beta.

Streaming videos isn't the new thing. Although, we would say that it's becoming ever more popular as the weeks progress into the 2010 year, and we're wondering if all those cable and satellite providers out there are shaking in their boots yet. Watching TV on your computer, or even from your computer to your TV is becoming something of a regular in most houses, and MSN is looking to jump on the bandwagon with a free alternative. And, despite the fact it's free, there's some juicy goodness in here.
