Why You Should Get Hulu Plus

10 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

There’s no denying the fact that online streaming platforms are the thing of now. Unrestrained by the finite schedules of broadcast, streaming networks, such as Netflix, are offering fans the opportunity to watch old (and original) programming on their TV, computers, or phones. Thanks to the success of Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards and the hype surrounding upcoming series, The Cosmopolitans and Transparent, Netflix and Amazon Prime are getting a lot of attention while Hulu has quietly ramped up its offerings — making it one platform everyone needs to get on board with.

With its own library of original shows (The Hotwives of Orlando) and online exclusives (Misfits, The Only Way Is Essex), going Plus is one thing you undoubtedly need to do this fall. Here’s why:

While Hulu Plus constantly touts its large collection of online exclusives, it’s not always clear »

Hulu Seeks Pay TV Partners

30 April 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hulu is in negotiations with U.S. pay TV operators to get a perch on set-top boxes, CEO Mike Hopkins disclosed at the streaming service’s Digital Content NewFront presentation Wednesday.

Disclosure comes on the heels of rival Netflix’s announcement last week that the service would be available on TiVo set-tops on three

small MSOs. Netflix is already available on several overseas cable operators.

The additional exposure should help broaden appeal of subscription Atm Hulu Plus, which Hopkins announced had surpassed 6 million subscribers in 2014.

Beyond the subscriber count update, there wasn’t much new information on Hulu original programming, with senior VP of content Craig Erwich a very recent addition to the staff. Hulu has already renewed its entire slate of originals last year, including “The Awesomes,” “Moone Boy,” “East Los High,” ” Behind the Mask” and “Deadbeat.”

Hopkins talked up substantial increases in the coming years for original production, »

Review: Moone Boy Season 2 Is Very Fecking Good

24 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Tales of boyhood, of one's family, and one's town, are a down right staple in TV Land. From Leave It To Beaver to The Wonder Years, it seems that every decade of television must have at least one iconic male-centered coming-of-age show (even when said show takes place a couple of decades behind present day).In 2012, actor Chris O'Dowd and co-writer Nick Vincent Murphy decided to fictionalize their own rise to adolescence on the small screen. Those who took notice of their efforts were treated to the earnestly charming, delightfully goofy and occasionally bawdy Moone Boy... which consists of the chronicles of one young Martin Moone (David Rawle), his imaginary friend Sean Murphy (O'Dowd), and the whole Moone clan in the small town of Boyle,...

Moone Boy Season 2 Review: Chris O’Dowd’s Comedy as Weird and Charming as Ever

24 April 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

On Thursday, April 24th, new episodes of the excellent comedy series Moone Boy (which originally aired in the U.K. on Sky1) will return to online streaming provider Hulu. Each season of the half-hour show only runs six episodes, making it a scrumptious morsel that's easy to devour quickly (and if you haven't already devoured the first season, remedy that immediately).  Moone Boy focuses on 12-year-old Martin Moon (David Rawle) and his imaginary friend Sean (Chris O'Dowd), and their many misadventures in Martin's home town of Boyle, Ireland.  Season Two starts in 1990, but doesn't wear out that fact with too many jokes about fads and historical hindsight (although those that exist are well-placed, like Martin's love of Ghostbusters, or his sister Trisha's [Aoife Duffin] mourning over Talking Heads breaking up). Ireland is as lush and as important a player in the second season as it was in the first -- O'Dowd (and »

Chris O'Dowd's Moone Boy Headed For The Big Screen!

7 April 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Chris O'Dowd's Moone Boy is the greatest single reason why Us residents should subscribe to Hulu. Created by, co-written by, and starring O'Dowd - who also directed the as yet unaired third series - Moone Boy is a quasi autobiographical tale of a young boy growing up in small town Ireland with his imaginary friend. It's utterly charming and absolutely hilarious stuff and with two series already aired in Ireland - the second of which is due to hit Hulu at the end of the month - and a third already in the can O'Dowd and his writing partner Nick Vincent Murphy are addressing a very simple question:What do you do with a show about a child and his imaginary friend when your young star...

First Look At 'Moone Boy' Season Two Trailer From Hulu (Exclusive Video)

26 March 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Completely out of nowhere, Moone Boy became my favorite comedy of 2013 -- ending up in the No. 1 year-end slot. I started to evangelize its coming-of-age goodness to anybody who would listen and went out of my way to sell it hard to both John Landgraf of FX and Ted Sarandos of Netflix. Story: 'Grey's Anatomy' Poised to Tell 'Bubble Boy' Story Hey, great shows are on every platform so why deny yourself the pleasure of it just because you don't own it? In this trailer for season two, it's pretty clear all the attributes that hooked me
