If you're at all into TV, you've heard of Hulu. Chances are, you're watching something on Hulu right now on your PC, phone, XBOX360, Wii, Roku, PS3, iPad, 3DS, or any of the other supported devices. The list is pretty long, but until today it had one glaring omission - Android tablets. Sure, some tablets, like the Kindle Fire, HTC Flyer, or the Vizio VTAB, were already supported, but they were running Gingerbread and didn't have a proper tablet UI. Well, no more.
Hulu has released an update to the Hulu Plus (app available to Plus subscribers for $7.99 a month) that introduces a brand new tablet-optimized interface and support for the following tablet devices:
- Asus Eee Pad Transformer
- Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime
- Motorola Xoom
- Motorola XYBoard 10.1
- Toshiba Thrive
- Acer Iconia (although it's unclear which Iconia exactly, because the A100 is incompatible - they probably mean the A500)
- LG G-Slate
- HTC Flyer
- Vizio 8" Tablet
It was puzzling to see no mention of any Galaxy Tab variants on that list, most notably the 10.1, and I've confirmed it's indeed listed as incompatible. Considering other Tegra 2 tablets, like the ASUS TF101, are compatible, I have to wonder what the reason for ignoring one of the most popular tablet lines could be. Hopefully, that'll be rectified in the near future.
