How to play Hulu videos on your smartphone
That large-screen smartphone in your pocket is a perfect asset for catching up with the latest TV series and movies and while on a PC you’d usually turn to Hulu for that, on a smartphone, your choice is limited. Hulu has released its Hulu Plus application only on limited Android devices for example. Hulu’s web content is also often blocked on mobile devices, so what do you do?

Save for waiting for an official application to work across different devices, you can do two things:

1. Install Flash Video Browser - the application is available on the Android Market and it costs a mere buck. What it does though is allow you to access the Flash content - no subscription required, and all the the free web content that often gets blocked on mobile devices.

Download Flash Video Browser [Android Market link]

2. Install the hacked Hulu Plus APK - now this is something you’d do at your own risk. It should be safe and work well, as it’s just a modified version of the Hulu Plus application, but it’s not on the official Android Market. It doesn’t require rooting your device, which is another plus. For the paid content, you’d still need to have subscription, but you can still browse through the gallery without it.

How long until Hulu realizes this loop hole and fixes it. I give it about 2 weeks. Cause Hulu will be dammed if its going to let folks watch their videos on an Android device without forking over some dough.

Did you not read? Even after you install the hacked Hulu Plus app you still have to pay to watch the premium content, the hack all it does is it removes the device restriction so you can use the app on other android phones and not just the few currently allowed.

Actually if you go through the internet browser on an android phone you can still browse through the titles hulu offers but when you try to watch vids through the browser it recognizes the android format & won't allow you to watch videos but by paying $1 for the flash player app listed above it will allow you to watch hulu videos through the android browser for free.Hope this clears it up for you guys

Awesome, thank you for posting this I have been paying for Hulu + and not able to use it on my adnroid device waiting for them to add to the approved list. I downloaded the Hulu plus app mod and it is working great with no freezing or lagging.
