Hulu Plus Coming to Android, 6 Phones to Start
Looks like there’s more than one company that wants your movie loving attention these days, right? Hulu, which i’m sure you are all familiar appears to be migrating over to Android, and soon. Hulu Plus has just announced to us that they will be offering their service on six devices to start, including the Google Nexus One and Nexus S, Motorola Droid 2, Droid X, and Atrix, and the Inspire 4G from HTC.
While some might say it’s not enough phones, we say it’s a pretty good start. Like any video service, they’ve got their head in the DRM (Digital Right Management) cloud. They have to do their due diligence to protect all that sweet content, so we understand. They have to work on some devices a bit more than others, to ensure it doesn’t turn into a big pirate fest, essentially.
Most interesting is that of the initially supported devices – two have Qualcomm Snapdragons on board. Qualcomm has long touted Snapdragon’s integrated support for securing certain kinds of media, and as asserted by the big Q earlier this year, said that it would be integral in the inevitable rollout of services like Netflix, Hulu, and even Google’s new video rental service.
Either way, consider yourself lucky if you are an owner of one of the above-mentioned devices! Check out the promo video below, it does a pretty good job explaining what you can look forward to with Hulu Plus.
