it works on my Xyboard 8.2 and my Razr running ICS beautifully. Hulu is a much nicer app than Netflix but at least Netflix is on it when it comes to availability unlike Hulu.

i'm sorry, i meant device availability. i didn't mean to bring the actual service's content to question but for the record Hulu Plus has more Television Shows.

the app doesn't have ads but the playback has ad breaks. it's a shame since this is a paid service but we have to remember Hulu has expensive contracts.

Just popping to to say, that while I may not be able to download directly from the play store, Hulu Plus runs great on my Galaxy S 4G (T-Mob).

I have the adroid tablet ice cream sandwich 40 and you web page states it should work. I installed the huluplus app and it stated that it is hot able to play videos from there yet but they are working on it. Which is correct. Do I need to download an update for this tablet? Thank you
