Expected for quite some time, now it's official.
Putting to rest months of rumors, the online television Web site Hulu unveiled a subscription service on Tuesday, promising access to episodes of more TV shows to customers who pay $9.99 a month.
Recent episodes of shows on ABC, NBC, Fox and a raft of other networks are available for free on Hulu, and will remain that way, the company said Tuesday. But the subscription service, called Hulu Plus, will open the door to more episodes of shows on more platforms.
