It has long been a dream for many Android users to be able to access Hulu on their phone; even those with Flash on their unit have been unable to use the streaming service. But now, there is a solution. Those using an Android device running Froyo or higher can sign up for PlayOn. With this service, you will be able to watch streaming video from CNN, PBS, FOX, ESPN 3, Comedy Central, Spike, Netflix, Hulu and more. Video can be streamed through 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi.
The service costs $39.99 for the first year and $19.99 for each additional year. Or, you can pay $79.99 for a lifetime subscription. The PlayOn app is available for free in the Android Market and new users can get a free two-week trial. Now you might never put down your Android phone.

iphone and ipad wont be able to stream video from this service... its for android. apple is lacking in the streaming capabilities. they may pave the way for innovation (touchscreen smartphones, facetime) but droid is perfecting it.

duh... obviously the better the phone the less time it takes to buffer on netflix. you have to wait for it to buffer on computer in most cases as well... if you dont like the service on the computer you wont like it on the phone. the phones that run 2.2 but dont have 1g processors for example may take a min or two but thats a pretty reasonable amount time. consider the LTE phones though.... its going to fly. especially the bionic on verizon...LTE and dual core!

also most of these services (comedy central, pbs, fox, espn, cnn, hulu,) usually wait to after the show airs to put it up on the internet. netflix waits for it to go on dvd. like i said, if you dont like the service on your computer, you wont like it on the phone in most cases.
risky...20$ for a year or 80$ lifetime...lifetime = 4 years(20x4=80) most people dont keep their smart phones for more than 2years b4 moving on and what if u get disconnected and wifi is only available -___-...risky xD

App purchases and subscriptions are tied to your google account, not to your phone. Assuming your new phone is also an android phone, you can just log in with your old account and get access to all your paid programs.
Well you will need to get a phone with the new Snapdragon chipsets that are being made then, like with the LG Revolution. Hopefully you can upgrade then or be willing to pay for a new phone with the chipset outright.
