Hulu Plus Announced, Android App Imminent

Hulu has pulled the curtain back on their new $10/month Hulu Plus service which brings all your favorite episodes from all your favorite shows. You can read the press release over at the Hulu blog but the bottom line is this: ABC, NBC, and FOX shows on demand, pretty much anywhere.  Moving beyond desktops and web browsers, Hulu Plus is already slated for Samsung Blu-ray player and iPads.  Even though they don’t explicitly come out and say it, they are working on bringing the service to Android devices (phones, Google TV).  How do we know?  First off, the blog announcement plays coy when naming support for future devices.

These are the devices shipping with Hulu Plus today. But this is just the first step in our mission to bring you TV wherever you are. We are already hard at work on porting Hulu Plus to other devices and platforms, with PlayStation 3 coming soon. But that’s a story for another day.

Further, when you sign up for an invitation, the first thing you are asked is what kind of mobile device you are using.  Guess what one of your options are?

Now why would you ask me that, Hulu?
