The Hulu app for mobile devices is of no use to anyone, unless they pay the $8 per month for the Hulu Plus service. But today Hulu have announced that a new Android update will offer a selection of free content. With a couple of exceptions the app will offer the free Hulu service on mobile devices.
The move was announced by Hulu back in May, and will currently will work on Android smartphone and tablets only. The update offers mobile users selected free episodes and content from Network shows from NBC, Fox, and Comedy Central as well as Hulu Originals, Anime, Kids, Movies and Latino.
For viewers that still want whole seasons and full access to the Hulu back catalog, then signing up to the premium Hulu Plus subscription service is the way to go. And conveniently Hulu have that option staring you in the face from within the app.
But any free content for mobiles is a great bit of news. No dates have been given for an iOS version, but it cannot be too far away. Android users can download the updated app from the Google Play Store.
