Hulu Plus Expands to Seven Android Tablets
Hulu Plus Expands Android Tablet Support, Adds 'Deluxe' UI
Hulu Plus expanded its reach into the Android tablet market with an update that encompasses seven older tablets, and adds a "super deluxe" UI.
Hulu previously launched its Hulu Plus app for the Apple iPad, Kindle Fire, Nook Tablet, and the 7-inch Vizio tablet. But this week's update adds support for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Motorola Xoom, Motorola XYBoard 10.1, Toshiba Thrive, Acer Iconia, and LG G-Slate. A number of Android phones are already supported.
The new layout gives the Hulu Plus app the horizontally aligned look of Flipboard or a similar app, with content arranged vertically, but navigated side-to-side. A full list of Hulu's supported devices is on its website. Most recently, Hulu developed Plus for the Nintendo Wii.
"When building this app, we looked for ways to grant you instant access to exactly what you want to watch," the team said in a blog post. "Once you decide on a show, hold your finger down on the show's thumbnail and the latest episode of the series will automatically start playing. If you've been following a show for a while, hold your finger down on the show's thumbnail and the next episode will automatically launch based on where you are in the series."
Unfortunately, a few users reported a glitch with the Motorola Xoom, in that playback did not work. PCMag contacted a Hulu spokeswoman, who said that her team would look into the matter. Some users also wondered why the app did not support the Galaxy Tab, another popular Android tablet. More Android devices will be supported in the future, Hulu said.
Owners can download the app from the Google Play Store, formerly known as the Android Market.
