Back in July, Hulu announced they were working hard to add official support for Google’s impressive $35 dongle, the Chromecast. Now the day has finally come!

While Chromecast owners previously were able to stream Hulu content using Chrome’s tab cast feature, this experience was less than perfect. The good news is that – according to Google’s official blog – Hulu is now rolling out an app update that fully supports the Chromecast on your Android phone and tablet. The only downside is that you’ll need an active Hulu Plus subscription to get in on the action, which will set you back $7.99 a month.

Once you’ve updated to the new version of Hulu Plus, bringing content over to your Chromecast is as easy as pressing Hulu Plus’ new “Cast Button”.

For those that have yet to pick up a Chromecast, now could be the perfect time to do it, as this is hopefully just the beginning of great things to come for Google’s media streamer.

For those that currently own the Chromecast, what do you think of the added Hulu Plus support? What other great apps and services would you like to see come to the Chromecast?
