While we appreciate an old fashioned press release as much as the next news outfit, we can’t resist the urge to make posting fodder out of news when it runs so easily into our midst.  Until recently we’d been hearing a launch window of just ‘Spring 2011” for America’s most popular television site.  Thanks to the Official Xbox Magazine. we now know the exact date, this Friday.

From Joystiq:

“According to the magazine (if, of course, the “magazine” isn’t a well-executed fake) Microsoft will promote the launch with a contest, wherein each week from April 29 through May 30, prizes will be awarded to randomly chosen Hulu Plus users. The prizes range from Beaches Resort trips to free Xbox 360 bundles and Hulu Plus subscriptions.”

Now to the inevitable second question, when is it coming to Windows Phone?
