Hulu to Implement $9.95 Subscription Fee Soon

Thanks to Hulu, the two-year-old internet site that hosts movies, television shows and video clips, you don’t really even need a TV to keep up with your favorite shows. The service has always been free—until now. According to the Los Angeles Times, the bosses at Hulu will be implementing a subscription service as early as late May. The proposed changes won’t completely eliminate free content from the site; the five most recent episodes of shows will remain free, but users will have to pay for other episodes and seasons. The subscription service, dubbed Hulu Plus, will cost $9.95 per month. Although the company is only testing the changes, it’s expected that the pay-per-internet-view model will eventually be fully implemented.
