Hulu Plus for Android is available

Posted in Android by Reuben Drake on June 22nd, 2011

Great news. Hulu Plus for Android is available, however you may not be able to install it yet. The Hulu Blog states that six phones: the Nexus One, Nexus S, HTC Inspire 4G, Motorola Droid II, Motorola Droid X, and the Motorola Atrix are compatible, with “additional device announcements” coming later in the year.

If you look at the list, many flagship phones are missing, but we have high hopes that they will have it running for everyone in no time. Hopefully that is the case.

Hulu Plus available on Xbox April 29

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on April 27th, 2011

According to a scan of the June issue of OXM, Hulu Plus will launch on Xbox 360 on April 29. That’s this Friday. We knew it was coming, but the last official word we had heard was “spring”.

If this turns out to be a true scan of the magazine, it looks like Microsoft will promote the launch with a contest each week from April 29 through May 30. Prizes will be awarded to randomly chosen Hulu Plus users. Some of the prizes include Beaches Resort trips and free Xbox 360 bundles as well as Hulu Plus subscriptions.

Hulu Plus, Kinect updates for Xbox 360

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on April 14th, 2011

Thanks to the guys over at Joystiq, we have some screenshots that show Hulu Plus on the Xbox 360. There’s also an image of the Kinect Hub with Hulu and Netflix. The Hulu and Avatar Kinect apps are said to be “fully functional,” with good tracking of movements, according to the source. The Hulu interface looks like the Xbox Dashboard, with a rotating layer of categories and selectable content.

We don’t know whether Hulu Plus will be added to the current public beta test of the next Dashboard update, but we hope so. It looks pretty good in pictures.

Hulu Android app coming soon, but only for some devices

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on March 13th, 2011

Hulu’s Hulu Plus plans for Android are getting closer with a new teaser in its device list. The teaser shows the Plus service “coming soon,” but not for all devices. Only certain ones. Use of the TV streaming will require “select Android OS 2.2 phones,” according to the company.

Pretty odd since the photo shows the Nexus S, which runs Android 2.3, but maybe they are preparing to change the image. As for why the access is limited, it is likely due to Android fragmentation. Netflix knows first hand that the platform has wildly varying DRM support in most versions and it would have to write too much code to support most or all Android devices. So support is coming, but there is a price. It will shut out a large portion of the Android community. Hulu, who is very keen to guard against stream ripping also faces this barrier. One day though, we hope to have Hulu Plus on all of our Android devices. The question is when?

Hulu Plus coming to Android

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on January 10th, 2011

Android users will be happy to learn that after months of waiting, it has now been confirmed that Hulu Plus will be arriving on the Android platform very soon. They say it will be available on selected devices, so we hope that the selection includes a wide range.

There’s no word yet on an official launch date or a list of supported devices, but those should arrive soon enough. Your wait is almost over.

Hulu Plus drops price to $7.99 a month, adds Roku support

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on November 17th, 2010

The rumored Hulu Plus price drop has happened. It’s not a big price cut, but it’s still a cut. The $9.99 subscription service has now dipped to $7.99 per month. They are hoping that it’s enough to persuade you to get on board.

If you’re already subscribed, Hulu has you covered with a refund for the difference from the preview price to the current one, which will be applied in your next billing cycle. The other good news is that the list of devices you can enjoy your Plus experience on has just grown by one, as they have added Roku’s hardware.

Sony Dash gets Hulu Plus streaming

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on November 14th, 2010

The Sony Dash, the company’s personal Internet viewer, will now be teaming up with Hulu to bring some extra content to the WiFi device. Sony has announced that the subscription-based Hulu Plus streaming service is available for the Sony Dash.

Users can access popular TV shows for $9.99 per month with the service. The Dash also supports a bunch of other useful apps, including social networking, weather, news, sports, and videos. Hulu Plus will now be joining the over 1,000 free apps currently available to the device.


Hulu Plus now available to US PS3 owners

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on November 11th, 2010

You’ve been waiting for Hulu Plus for your PS3 and sure enough, now any US PlayStation Network member stream Hulu’s premium service. You no longer have to be a paying member of Sony’s PlayStation Plus club to qualify.

If you like what the $9.99 TV streaming service is offering, then you had better get streaming. Those across the pond will just have to wait. Luckily for all of us the PS3 does a lot.

Hulu Plus hits 2010 BRAVIA HDTVs and all PS3 users next week

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on November 4th, 2010

Hulu has just announced plans to get Hulu Plus stocked with even more content and onto more devices. All 2010 Sony BRAVIA HDTVs will now have access to the subscription programming service. This will spill over to Sony’s various Blu-ray players, home theater systems, network media players and other devices soon.

Hulu will also soon be removing the invite requirement to get Hulu Plus on the PlayStation 3. Next week, any PlayStation Network member will be able to get it.

Hulu Plus dropping to $4.95 per month?

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2010

For now this is just a rumor, but All Things D has heard from sources that Hulu Plus is going to cut its $9.95 per month subscription fee in half to $4.95 as they want to increase their subscriber count.

If this is true, it beats the $8.95 per month fee paid by Netflix subscribers. It could happen. Content owners are still experimenting with pricing and they want to see what price point will draw people in. We will just have to wait and see what happens.

Roku adding Hulu Plus channel this fall

Posted in Uncategorized by Conner Flynn on September 28th, 2010

Hulu Plus is coming to Roku’s players, which start at $59 and go up to $99 for the Roku XDS. That $10 Hulu Plus monthly subscription fee sure beats ten 99-cent Apple TV rentals.

If you haven’t already, it may just be time to cut your cable subscription. You probably already watch more netflix than cable anyway. No mention yet about resolution or bitrate, but we do know that it goes live this fall.


Hulu Plus could have Ad-Free Option, if you pay for it

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on July 8th, 2010

On Wednesday night, speaking with NewTeeVee, the Chief of Hulu, Jason Kilar mentioned that he would be comfortable adding a more expensive tier to Hulu Plus, which would completely remove all ads. As it stands now, Hulu Plus doesn’t get rid of ads while you pay that $9.99 per month, it just gives you access to a wider selection of your shows.

Many people are accustomed to ads while they watch shows, but some people have a different outlook on watching shows/movies on their computer and they don’t want ads. Hulu makes its money from those advertisements. And so do the broadcasting partners who provide those videos. This could be another way for HULU to make money.

Hulu Plus announced, with iPad, iPhone, Samsung, and others on board

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2010

We’ve heard the rumors about the new Hulu service and now we’ve heard that Hulu Plus, the $10 a month service, will feature entire seasons of shows that are available in limited quantities on the free service, along with other programming not available via Hulu-lite.

There will also be iPod and iPad apps available for streaming with WiFi or 3G and support for Samsung connected TVs and Blu-ray. Support for TVs and Blu-ray players from both Vizio and Sony are also in the works, with PS3 and Xbox 360.

Hulu Plus gets delayed

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2010

Hulu’s May 24th “Hulu Plus” subscription will apparently miss its scheduled debut, according to sources. The company is planning a $9.95 monthly subscription package which would allow access to a back catalog of streaming content; but “people familiar with the company” are now saying that Hulu Plus is unlikely to be ready in time for a launch next Monday.

If the info is accurate, no one is sure if the delay is a technical one or due to ongoing negotiations with some content providers. Rumors are that Fox, ABC and NBC, who make up Hulu’s owners, are pretty well decided on what subscribers will get for the money, but we don’t have exact details.
