Hulu Plus Streaming Service Coming to Android Smartphones

By Updated on

We’ve already brought you the news that Hulu Plus will soon be arriving on the Xbox 360 with Kinect compatibility, and now it appears that the video streaming service will be heading to Android-based smartphones sometime in the future as well.

According to a recent article by Eric M. Zeman over at phonescoop.com, the announcement, that Hulu is currently preparing an app for Google’s Android platform, was made during Samsung’s keynote address at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

As Rob Wong notes on the blog.hulu.com website, it’s been Hulu’s goal to add more platforms and devices to the subscription service ever since it first launched. The company’s aim is to offer customers as many ways as they can to stream the shows they want, whenever they want.

This is why the company is working on bringing the Hulu Plus subscription service to a select amount of Android smartphones (running on Android 2.2 OS). Although Hulu’s CEO Jason Kilar said that the service would be arriving in the coming months, he didn’t give a specific date.

What do you think of Hulu Plus being made available on Android devices? Will you download the app?
