Hulu Plus coming to Xbox 360 on April 29

I’m sure that there are a lot of Xbox 360 gamers out there that have been wishing they had more entertainment options on the console than the Xbox has right now. The PS3 user has Netflix and Hulu Plus and has had them for a while now. I can vouch for how nice it is to have Hulu Plus on the PS3, I use it all the time to catch up on shows that I miss and my DVR can’t hold. The good news for Xbox 360 fans is that Hulu Plus is heading your way.

Joystiq reports that Hulu Plus will land on the Xbox 360 on April 29. That is only a few days away now. If you are a subscriber this will give you one more place to watch your favorite shows in your home. The last time that we heard about Hulu Plus coming to the Xbox 360 the official word was this spring. Spring has spring and here comes Hulu Plus.

Joystiq reports that the tip comes from the June issue of OXM magazine that seems legit according to the gang at Joystiq. The mag also notes that there will be a contest along with the launch that will see users winning prices each wheel from April 29 through May 30. The prizes will be given to randomly drawn Hulu Plus user names. Assuming the scan that Joystiq saw was real, this Friday you can start streaming Sons of Anarchy all you want. Considering that the Xbox 360 is the best selling game console I am surprised it has taken this long to get Hulu Plus.
