10:35 AM -- Some more details have emerged about Hulu Plus, Hulu's new $9.99 subscription offering, thanks to a study by research firm One Touch Intelligence , paidContent reports.

Hulu Plus has 3,564 more episodes -- or 14 percent more -- than the regular Hulu site, according to the study. Among the content only available on Hulu Plus are popular shows like Modern Family, Law & Order, and Prison Break.

Predictably, two thirds of the content found only on Hulu Plus was from the joint venture's equity partners, ABC, Fox, and NBC.
