Hulu Plus users with Android tablets will be happy to hear that the service is now available on seven android tablets, complete with a brand new interface.
Rajiv Makhijani and Zachary Pinter, Software Developers at Hulu, announced yesterday on the Hulu blog that, “Hulu Plus is available on seven Android tablets with a brand new, super deluxe Hulu Plus user interface. Download the Hulu Plus app from Google Play and experience a new way to watch TV with the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Motorola Xoom, Motorola XYBoard 10.1, Toshiba Thrive, Acer Iconia and LG G-Slate.” The app will be coming to more Android devices soon.
The Android app features a new design that improves user experience with “horizontal ‘trays’ so you can naturally swipe while browsing through TV shows and movies.” They’ve also organized their content library on the new app, making it easier for users to discover new shows and keep up with old shows.
Makhijani and Pinter explain, “Once you decide on a show, hold your finger down on the show’s thumbnail and the latest episode of the series will automatically start playing. If you’ve been following a show for a while, hold your finger down on the show’s thumbnail and the next episode will automatically launch based on where you are in the series.”
If you have one of the seven Android tablets listed, will you be downloading the Hulu Plus app?
