Hulu Plus Supports Four More Android Smartphones to Total Ten

July 14, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

With increasing economic fluctuations and easy access to television shows and movies alike online, online streaming services have become popular. One such popular service, Hulu, has made its own mark in the industry with their quality features.

A few months back Hulu Plus made headlines when the online streaming service was added to Xbox Live. Then, about three weeks back, Hulu made its foray into Android territory.

Six selected Android smartphones were included into the video streaming service’s list. Yesterday, Hulu announced its expansion to four more Android smartphones, making the tally to an even ten.

The announcement was made by the Senior Product Manager of Hulu Mobile Applications, Lonn Lee in the Hulu blog. He said,

“We’re extremely excited to offer Hulu Plus subscribers the opportunity to watch premium content on these smartphones when, how and where they want it. As we said when we initially launched, we’ll continue to work hard to support additional devices”

With a total of ten smartphones in its repertoire, Hulu Plus will now be available on HTC Evo 4G, HTC ThunderBolt, HTC myTouch 4G and G2 along with the Nexus One, Nexus S, HTC Inspire 4G, Motorola Droid II, Motorola Droid X, and the Motorola Atrix.

The streaming service is a subscription-based service which runs at $7.99 per month. Hulu allows US customers to watch movies and TV shows including content that’s not available from the company’s free, web-based service. This also includes content such as every current-season episode of TV shows from ABC, Fox, and NBC.

Netflix has been, for the most part, the biggest competitor of online streaming service, but Hulu’s presence has grown so much to take it on par with Netflix. Unlike Netflix though, most Hulu programming includes commercials — even if you pay for a subscription.

Additionally, Hulu Plus is offering a free trial month for new customers. Hulu PLUS has all the previous features of Hulu and also includes the addition of video consoles, blue ray and media players, mobile devices, televisions, and computers.
