Looks like it’ll be a great day for Windows Phone 8 users as the official Hulu Plus app is forthcoming later today.
News of the app’s arrival was predicted by some recent murmurs of an imminent release and indeed, with the app having launched on Windows 8 six months ago, it only seemed liked a matter of time before they brought it over to mobile.
The app itself allows users access to their queue, with high quality streaming, the ability to jump to chapters, sharing to social networks and search. Of course users will need the pay-for Hulu Plus account and not just a free one, meaning many users won’t be able to take advantage of the new app.
Performance of the app is top notch with fast, fluid performance akin to the quality level of the recently released Pandora app for Windows Phone. Premium subscribes will be quite happy with the final product, expected later today.
With Hulu Plus on board, Windows Phone 8 has once again continued its onward streak of getting high profile apps on its side.
[Update: The app is now live in the Store]
