Hulu Plus for Windows Phone 8: Now available in the US Store
No sooner than we posted our hands-on video did the link go live, which means you can go ahead and experience high quality video of your favorite shows, streamed to your phone yourself.
There’s not much else to say about the app except that you do need a premium account but in our opinion, it’s totally worth it (especially if you have an Xbox 360 and/or Windows 8 machine).
Head here to the Store to grab it right now. Let us know what you think in comments! [As usual, with apps that are real new to the Store, it could take a few hours for it to hit your region. We're also betting that like the Hulu service itself, this is restricted to the US.]
Bonus: For those who use Bing for daily searches can get a free one-month subscription to Hulu Plus by using their Bing rewards. Thanks, Squatting Hen, for that tip!

Worked for me (stateside L920)
I'm glad this app is here. I've been waiting for a long time for this app to come. You know what would be cool, if reward points were added when we use search using the built in search button on windows phones. May be we already do and I don't know about it???
I'll show myself out.
Was watching stuff when I got the notification about it being up...lol.
Works great and picture quality is fantastic.
Suck not being able to get it in canada BUT that's not a fault of Hulu or MS... Only ones to blame is our CRTC and The CanadianBroadcasting Act. same reason/problem we don't get any decent media services.
