If you’re one of the Internet’s many denizens still shedding an oh-so-first-world-problem tear over Netflix’s
business strategy overhaul pricing changes, you’re probably still looking for somewhere else to spend your two lattes worth of monthly fees in exchange for countless hours of entertainment. Hulu Plus, perhaps?
If you’re an Android user, chances are pretty decent that Hulu Plus just got a lot more useful for you; this morning, Hulu is announcing streaming support for four of the most popular Android devices around.
The new devices getting Hulu Plus this morning:
- Sprint Evo 4G
- T-Mobile G2
- T-Mobile myTouch 4G
- Verizon Thunderbolt
This update brings the Hulu’s Android stable up to 10 devices, with the Nexus One, Nexus S, HTC Inspire 4G, Motorola Droid II, Motorola Droid X, and the Motorola Atrix having been supported from the get go. The lack of support for certain popular handsets — namely, the Evo 4G and the super-trendy Thunderbolt — surprised the heck out of us at launch, so this is a welcome update.
Of course, Hulu Plus isn’t really much of a substitute for Netflix. Sure, you might be able to watch Family Guy or The Daily Show (depending on what sort of mood Viacom is in), but only on Netflix can you find such gems as White Chicks or Alive! Is Michael Jackson Really Dead?.
