Hulu Plus Coming Soon to an Android Device Near You

If you are a fan of Hulu and Hulu plus, and you carry an Android device around with you, there is reason to celebrate.  During the Samsung Keynote at CES, Hulu’s CEO announced that they are working to bring the Hulu Plus subscription service to “select Android phones”.

A quote from Hulu’s blog about the announcement:

Since we launched Hulu Plus, it’s been our goal to continue to add more platforms and devices to the subscription service to offer you as many ways as possible to stream the shows you want, whenever you want. We’re excited to share the following news.

During Samsung’s keynote at CES today, Hulu CEO Jason Kilar announced for the first time that Hulu is working to bring the Hulu Plus subscription service to select Android™ phones (running Android OS 2.2), and gave the audience a sneak peek at the Hulu Plus Android app during the presentation. Hulu Plus will be available on select Android mobile phones in coming months; we’ll announce further details as soon as we have an official launch date and complete list of Hulu Plus-enabled Android phones. We hope you’re as excited as we are!

Another positive step by the entertainment industry in Android’s direction.  Now if we could only get that pesky Netflix app on our Android devices.
