Hot on the heels of Netflix, Hulu has released a streaming TV and movie app for Android. But like Netflix, Hulu isn’t making the app available on all Android smartphones just yet. Instead, there’s a list of 6 currently supported phones with additional devices expected to be added to the list later this year.
Right now you can run Hulu Plus on the Nexus One, Nexus S, HTC Inspire 4G, Motorola Droid II, Motorola Droid X, and Motorola Atrix.
In order to use the app you’ll need to be a Hulu Plus susbscriber. While the basic Hulu service is free (and ad-supported) in the US, Hulu Plus offers additional content including more episodes of current TV shows. Hulu Plus subscriptions have also always been a requirement for using the company’s iPhone and iPad apps.
There is also a “free gallery” with limited content for anyone who wants to check out the app before signing up though.
The new Android app supports streaming video over WiFi, 3G and 4G connections. You can also sign into your account on mulitple devices to pick up viewing a program on your TV or computer where you left off watching on your phone.
