Exactly three weeks ago, Hulu released its Android app to the Market. However, the app was only compatible with a handful of devices. Thankfully, the company is currently working to bring the popular service to more Android phones. Today it announced four more phones will allow you to enjoy watching TV shows and movies on the go.
Coincidentally ,all phones are made by HTC. And they are:
- HTC EVO 4G
- HTC Thunderbolt
- T-Mobile’s myTouch 4G
- T-Mobile’s G2
These four phones join the other six previously supported ones, bringing the total number of compatible phones to 10. If you’re the proud owner of one of these phones, you can head to the Android Market right now and download the Hulu app. However, you’ll need a Hulu Plus subscription to use it. But worry not, you can still sign up for a free one-week trial, or for a month if you use an .edu email address. If you do decide to join Hulu Plus, here’s everything you’ll be able to do with the Android app:
- Watch all TV episodes available from Hulu
- Watch full series runs or back seasons of classic shows like The X-Files, Arrested Development, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Law and Order
- Search and browse for shows and videos and manage your queue directly from your supported Android device
- Watch movies from Miramax and the Criterion Collection, including Pulp Fiction, The English Patient, Breathless, Modern Times and hundreds more
- Resume play from where you left off on other Hulu Plus devices, including your computer and select mobile phones, tablets, internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray players
- Watch over WiFi, 3G and 4G
Do we have any Hulu Plus users here who are still waiting for Hulu to add support for their phones? What about those of you who have a supported phone? Do you use Hulu on your phone a lot? Or is it one of those things you’ve always wanted but once you have it you don’t use? Let us know in the comments below.
