    Hulu Plus app launches for Android

    Hulu Plus has made its long-awaited debut on Android.

    Launching in Google's Android Market yesterday, the new Hulu Plus app allows Android users who subscribe to the $7.99-per-month service to stream TV shows and movies directly to their mobile devices.


    For now, the app supports just six Android phones--the Nexus One, Nexus S, HTC Inspire 4G, Motorola Droid II, Motorola Droid X, and the Motorola Atrix. But Hulu is promising support for more Android phones as the year progresses.
    New subscribers to Hulu Plus can try the service free for one month before deciding whether to kick in the monthly fee to continue using it.


    The Hulu Plus Android app now joins its counterpart for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.


    Beyond Android and iOS, though, Hulu Plus is still unavailable for other mobile device platforms. However, Research In Motion has been talking to Hulu about making the paid video service available on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, according to AllThingsD and other sources.


    Hulu Plus is available on much bigger and less mobile devices, including Microsoft's Xbox 360, TiVo, and Sony's PlayStation 3. Hulu Plus and the free Hulu service are both accessible on PCs through the regular Hulu Web site.
    Hulu has been in the news lately over reports that the company has put itself up for sale and has already fielded an offer from a prospective buyer.

    It would be easier if Google buys Hulu and just gives us Hulu Plus for free -:)
