It comes as no surprised that if a device has any form of connectivity to it, it doesn't take very long after that for consumers to want their connections to all of their favorite streaming programs.  Nintendo has announced that the Nintendo 3DS is now going to have the capability of adding Hulu Plus to devices everywhere.  While this will require the 3DS to be connected to a good, reliable connection, this is exciting news for those with children who may not want to dive into a game and need entertainment.  Options will certainly be available for kids' programming on Hulu Plus.
