Hulu is doing their best to give Hulu Plus users as many ways as possible to use their service. Hulu Plus officially launched back in June with Samsung, Blu-ray, iPad and iPhone apps and also offer support for Playstation 3 and other devices. At CES yesterday, during Samsung’s keynote, Hulu CEO Jason Kilar announced that Hulu is now working to bring Hulu Plus to Android as well.
According to the Hulu blog, “Hulu is working to bring the Hulu Plus subscription service to select Android phones (running Android OS 2.2),” and Kilar “gave the audience a sneak peek at the Hulu Plus Android app during the presentation.” The service is supposed to be available on select Android phones over the next few months and the company says they’ll be announcing more details as soon as they know when the official launch date will be and which Android phones will be included.
According to the list of supported devices on the Hulu Plus website, Hulu Plus is also coming soon to Microsoft Xbox 360, TiVo Premiere, and Panasonic, LG, WD and Haier TVs and Blu-rays. As Hulu Plus expands to more and more devices it is likely to give the subscription numbers a big boost. Subscribers will be much more likely to pay for a service that they can access from virtually all of their devices. Back in June I wrote about how Hulu’s integration with Xbox and iPad is vital for the future of the company. It seems that they are moving in the right direction.
Do you subscribe to Hulu Plus and, if so, what devices do you use the service on? Are you looking forward to the Hulu Plus launch on Android mobile phones?
