Hulu Plus for Windows Phone 8 updated, adds Kids Corner support
Hulu Plus for Windows Phone 8 was updated today to version 1.1 and adds a little Kids Corner support into the mix. You can now add Hulu Plus to your Windows Phone Kid's Corner for instant access to ad free kids content.
When Hulu Plus is launched from the Kid's Corner all you're kids will have access to is the kid's section of Hulu Plus. It's a nice touch to prevent the younger kids from stumbling on more adult oriented viewing.
Other features in the version 1.1 update includes adding the ability to pin your favorite shows to your Start Screen for easy access, the ability to share videos and shows with friends, and a handful of bug fixes and performance tweeks.
Hulu Plus is a free app for your Windows Phone 8 devices but the service will cost you a monthly fee of $7.99. There is a free, seven day trial for the subscription to let you try things out before the $7.99 fee kicks in.
You can find Hulu Plus here in the (opens in new tab) Windows Phone Store.
Thanks, everyone, for the tip!

I suspect that, in fact, MS has to do it this way. Activesync policy enforcement doesn't recognize "Kid's Corner" as a seperate part of the phone -- letting you in means letting you in -- and so by rule they simply have to block all access. Although, now that I am thining about it, the fact that you can get to the camera would argue against that...
Hulu Plus etc would need to be ran at least once under the 'Adult' account to enter user details etc and then long press on the Tile and "Add to Kids Corner"
Or the agony of carrying a phone with a humongus battery.. I can go on forever..
But yeah when ever I have time, i bring out my old gameboy colour and give that to my little sisters to play with as their 3ds' "magically" disappears for a few days :).
Come to think of it probably have the Sega Master System lying around somewhere.
