6 Android models will now support Hulu Plus

Back in January, we reported that Samsung's BK Yoon said at CES that Hulu Plus would be coming to Android. A few months later, it has become a fact as the service is now available in the Android Market. But before you start limbering up your app installing fingers, Hulu is taking a page from Netflix's book and is allowing only 6 models to install the app to start with. We know that support for the app will grow larger because Hulu's own blog refers to this as the "first phase" and says it plans on announcing more devices that will support the service throughout the year.

The first 6 Android handsets whose users are able to pay $7.99 a month, after a free 1-week trial, for television and movies from Hulu Plus include the Nexus One, Google Nexus S, HTC Inspire 4G, Motorola DROID 2, Motorola DROID X and the Motorola ATRIX 4G. If Hulu waits too long to add more models that will support the service, you can expect to see what happened to Netflix repeat itself, with unauthorized devices getting hacked into the Hulu Plus service.

I have an Inspire 4G, but my ROM identifies my phone as a Desire HD, so I was able to download the app, but I can't stream anything, lol.

Oh well, to XDA
