Hulu Plus Headed To Android “In Coming Months”

At last night’s Samsung keynote, Hulu CEO Jason Kilar went on stage, and announced that Hulu Plus would be headed to Android devices in the near future. It won’t be for everyone, though, as detailed in a blog post by the company:

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!

For many of our users, the preferred way to enjoy Hulu Plus is by lounging on the living room couch, watching on a sleek new HDTV. (Thanks, Santa!) Today, Hulu is giving you one more way to watch current episodes of Modern Family, Glee, The Office, and more from the comfort of your living room: Hulu Plus is now available on Vizio Internet-connected HDTVs, and is coming soon to Vizio Blu-ray players. As with any new Hulu Plus device, the team has worked extremely hard to develop an optimized experience for these platforms.

If you decide to pick it up when it comes out, be careful if you’re on a limited data plan. It’ll chew through your gigabytes like nobody’s business.
