Hulu has officially rolled out their new subscription service in Japan, marking the company’s first international expansion. Just what will the Japanese branch of Hulu deliver? Well, entertainment fans residing in the Land of the Rising Sun will be able to gain unlimited instant access to hundreds of premium feature films including Pirates of the Caribbean, Armageddon, Men in Black, Troy, and As Good As It Gets amongst others, not to mention thousands of episodes from previous seasons of TV shows including 24, Bones, Criminal Minds, Desperate Housewives, Fringe, Grey’s Anatomy, Gossip Girl, Heroes, LOST, NCIS, Private Practice, Prison Break and Ugly Betty.
Access to these shows and movies are more or less instantaneous – and even better is, you can watch those on a wide range of devices as long as they’re connected to the Internet (at decent speeds, of course) – ranging from TVs to desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Best of all is, there will be no advertising involved as you fork out around ¥1,480 each month (that translates to slightly more than $19).
