Hulu Plus gets a brand new style on more Android tablets


Can’t get enough of TV? For only $7.99 per month, you could have unlimited instant streaming TV on your Android device with Hulu Plus. Today the company announced a new update to their Android app that introduces a clean design and support for additional tablets.

As many of you already know, the video streaming service offers the current season episodes of popular shows including Family Guy, The Office, New Girl, Once Upon a Time, Parks and Recreation, Misfits and America’s Next Top Model, and many more. Full series collections allow you to create an instant marathon with every episode of Community, Grey’s Anatomy and Lost.

In a company blog post, Hulu developers said, “This is just the beginning of our Android tablet rollout. Our team worked hard to build a fresh and engaging way to experience premium content on Android tablets, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”

New features in the Hulu Plus app include horizontal “trays” so you can naturally swipe while browsing through TV shows and movies, large thumbnails with beautiful visuals, and a better organized content library so it’s easy to discover new shows and keep up with the shows you are watching.

Seven Android tablets can now download Hulu Plus including the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, Motorola Xoom, Motorola XYBoard 10.1, Toshiba Thrive, Acer Iconia and LG G-Slate. With the new update, Hulu now supports over 30 Android devices.

The app currently has over 500,000 installs on the Google Play Store with an average rating of 3.3, but don’t let the low score concern you. The majority of the 1 star reviews are from people without a Hulu account or unsupported devices. Most reviewers give it 5 stars and praised the enjoyment they get from the service.

If you already grabbed the latest Hulu Plus update, let us know what you think.

    Doesn’t work on the Acer A100. Guess I’ll have to wait until this new version gets hacked.

    Are Hulu` still being idiots and leaving Hulu content out of Hulu Plus apps?

  • skugern

    Kind of annoyed that it now works on my G-Slate (how popular were those? There must be less than two thousand of them in circulation) but not on my Galaxy S II.

  • graywolf323

    and yet it still doesn’t work on the Samsung Galaxy S II…

    or any mobile device made by Samsung for that matter

  • thekaz

    Is this $7.99/month across all devices?

    Man, I so want to ditch Comcast, but my kids are too attached to the Disney Channel, and Disney seems intent on controlling their own content…

    I’m using Eee pad transformer to watch Naruto shippuden but some episodes don’t have subtitles, some do. Is this a known issue? Without subtitles, and they’re speaking Japanese, I cannot understand it :)
