Every online video service seems to be getting into the original content game these days. Hulu is no exception, and to celebrate the release of the superhero-themed animated comedy The Awesomes, they’re giving away two months of free access to the premium Hulu Plus portal. That includes access to the Android app, which isn’t available to free users. To redeem it, just head to this link and sign up.
This is a pretty big deal if you’ve been meaning to try out the less limited side of Hulu. The standard free trial period for Hulu Plus is just one week, and we’ve seen promotions of up to one month before, but this is the longest trial yet. Like the standard offer, you’ll need to provide some credit card information or a PayPal account when setting up your information, and cancel your subscription before the two months are up to avoid being charged.
The show itself looks like a mashup of one of Fox’s raunchy Sunday night cartoons and Alan Moore’s Watchmen. It’s written by Seth Meyers and produced by Mike Shoemaker, both Saturday Night Live alumni, and features the voices of quite a few SNL regulars. The jury’s still out on whether the 10-episode series is any good, but you can probably expect a few references to The Ambiguously Gay Duo.
