    Hulu Plus and ESPN 3

    So - Xbox Live, $49.99 per year - ESPN 3 comes with that this November with no extra charge

    Hulu Plus, probably Q1, 2011 - $9.99 per month on Xbox 360 - now on Samsung and next month on PS3, etc.

    So, for $170 per year, you get sports and the full season of current tv shows streamed to those devices - and you don't need a DVR.

    Plus, Netflix, Zune movies and you pretty much have no need for cable.

    The ONLY downside here stopping me from getting rid of an $89 cable bill is the lack of Fox Sports games - why can't the Big12 go ESPN exclusive?! Then I would just have my internet bill and the streaming services. Surely Fox will get on this band wagon for their sports shows...

    Nice. Can you watch normal ESPN and ESPN 2 on ESPN3? Like sportscenter and whatnot?

    The nice part of Hulu Plus is you can use it on about any device.

    Re: Hulu Plus and ESPN 3

    Question,

    I have the Current XBox 360, will I get the espn3 with that, or will I have to upgrade to the new xbox?

    Thanks for any answers, have been wondering since the new one was announced.

    I think it works on the original. I'd be ****** if it didn't.

    You'll get it - the new one is quieter and has a Kinect power port, but otherwise they use the same software.

    I used to have that, but now live in a house with a slab, don't want a cord going from the office to the tv on the carpet, especially with 2 dogs... May look into getting a second router in the house I guess, not really sure what that entails/costs.

    I'm not sure if I've seen it anywhere that says that $10/month is required for hulu... it's the 'premium' fee to watch episodes older than what they normally make available (you can usually only watch the past 5 or 6 episodes of a show); I have my fingers crossed that you'll be able to use the normal version on xbox360 like you would a computer
