Hulu’s HD section of its website will no longer be relegated to trailers. Beginning this week, the site will begin adding full length 720p high definition content in its HD Gallery. The move is part of Hulu’s “Hulu for The Holiday’s”, which is set to showcase new movies, TV shows and features every day until December 26th.
The first programs made available in HD are NBC shows, including the latest episodes of 30 Rock, The Office and Heroes. Joss Whedon’s web-feature Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is also available to watch in high definition. So far, only 10 full-length shows are available, and Hulu is not setting a time table as to when they may roll out more.
“Ultimately, Hulu is committed to leveraging and developing innovative technologies that deliver the best possible online video viewing experience,” said a Hulu spokesperson. “To that end, the Hulu HD gallery is the first step in making HD quality videos available on Hulu.”
