More Than 150 Criterion Collection Films Come to Hulu Plus

Posted Tue Feb 15, 2011 at 12:30 PM PST by Dick Ward

Over the next few months, at least 650 more will be added.

Looking for a reason to subscribe to Hulu Plus? Criterion just gave you one. Actually, they gave you 150, with a total of 800 on the way.

"Starting today, there are more than 150 of our most important films online on the Hulu Plus subscription service," writes Peter Becker on Criterion's release. "Over the coming months, that number will swell to more than 800 films."

That's a huge number, and an incredible contribution to the service. Being able to scroll up some of the most important films in the history of the medium at a whim is something that many will find to be well worth the cost of admission.

Criterion is known for their high quality transfers and excellent film selections, but to some they're even better known for their extra features. Never fear - Becker says that supplementary material is on the way.

Swing on over to to check out the selection.
