Hulu Plus app hacked to work on most Android devices

Hulu Plus app hacked to work on most Android devices
The Hulu Plus application is the smoothest way to access Hulu’s movies on a mobile device, but up until now it only worked on a couple of supported devices, with the rest of Androids left out. An XDA Developers user Vgeezy fixes this and brings you a modified version of the Hulu .APK file that will work on most Android devices.

“I have modded the huluplus.apk to work on any android device. It does not, I repeat does not require root,” the user broke the news a couple of days ago.

You’d still however need the Hulu paid subscription to enjoy content, but still this fixes a confusing problem for those having a paid subscription but no application to watch videos on the go. Hit the download link below to get the modified .APK and check out the video demonstration of the working app below. It’s confirmed to be fully functional on most Android devices, with the exception of set-top boxes like the Logitech Revue.

I think HULU regular should be available on smart phones. Just take away the commercials for the PLUS users.

Heck yes!!! Haha, someone else had to step up to do what Hulu should have already done. And I agree, why do I pay $8 a month and still have to watch commercials. If Netflix would offer tv shows the next day like Hulu I'd get rid of my Hulu account.

Get a DVR, instead of hulu, and record the shows you want to see, then you can skip the commercials :) ... I never understood why someone would actually PAY for hulu plus. Netflix offers 90% of what they do, plus movies. If you miss a recent episode of something, most are available on the website of the channel it's on. Hulu is the corporate b!tch of big tv networks. That's why you'll never see hulu without commercials.

I pay for hulu plus because I don't pay for cable. 8 bucks a month is alot cheaper than 60. I also watch it from my xbox instead of hooking up my laptop everytime I want to watch TV and I watch some of the exclusive Hulu plus only shows. Watching comercials is bull but you still watch comercials on regular TV and pay alot more than Hulu plus

I have Premium Netflix AND Hulu Plus, and I'd like to remark what a PAIN IN THE ASS it is that Hulu doesn't release apps for all my devices, I mean Netflix had an app for all my toys, Even my 1st gen iTouch and my DROID 1 and the Netflix apps still work awesome on those devices! But I only have a HULU + app for my iTouch 4th and my DROID X, Really?

Hulu app is great on Android. If live outside USA, you can use tools like UnoTelly to get Hulu on your Android.
