NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Google (GOOG - Get Report) TV and Hulu Plus are launching this fall, but that's about all the platform and content provider have in common as the future of Web video gets clearer.Hulu Plus -- the subscription service launched by News Corp.'s (NWS - Get Report) Fox, GE's (GE - Get Report) NBC and Disney's (DIS - Get Report) ABC for their Hulu joint venture -- seemed like it was off to a good start. For $9.99, the service (still in its preview stage) has access to the full current season and past seasons of shows such as NBC's 30 Rock and The Office, Fox's Glee and canceled cult favorite Arrested Development and ABC's Grey's Anatomy and Modern Family. It is also available on Samsung TVs and Blu-Ray players, Sony's (SNE - Get Report) PlayStation 3 and Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone -- with plans for expansion to more Sony products, Microsoft's Xbox 360, the Roku player and TiVo (TiVo) devices within the next year.
