Subscribers of Hulu Plus will now be able to watch streaming videos using Apple's digital media receiver by signing in with existing Hulu login credentials.

People not currently subscribed to Hulu Plus can sign up through Apple TV, using an Apple ID. Monthly charges will go through the iTunes Store, using this billing method.

Hulu Plus makes an appearance on Apple TV a week after competitor Roku scored a $45 million investment from News Corporation, which is one of the Hulu partners.

Apple TV offers several other video streaming services, like Netflix, MLB.TV and NBA. Fans have been wondering when Hulu Plus would make its way to Apple TV.

Hulu is launched in 2008 and is a joint partnership between NBCUniversal, News Corporation, The Walt Disney Company and Providence Equity Partners.
