One of Android’s few remaining “big app holes” is the lack of a Netflix streaming video app. Netflix doesn’t seem to have any imminent plans to release an Android app although it is on record that plans are in progress to release something early this year. However, according to GigaOm, Hulu Plus may beat Netflix to Android.
There are many millions of Android phone users at this point. So, an early entrance to the market by Hulu may kickstart its premium $7.99 per month service. Hulu Plus is available for Apple’s iOS mobile devices as well as several console devices like Sony Playstation 3, Roku, Blu-ray and LCD TVs.
