Hulu Plus Arrives To 4 More Android Devices

Have you been waiting for Hulu Plus to arrive on more Android devices than the six currently supported? If you can’t get enough of your favorite television shows, the answer is probably ‘yes’ and we have good news for you!

The new devices to get Hulu lovin’ are the Sprint Evo 4G, T-Mobile G2, T-Mobile myTouch 4G, and the Verizon Thunderbolt. While it’s cool that Hulu is targeting the major cell phones, I still feel a bit bad for those who have a lesser known Android device.

Netflix Radically Changes Price Plans; Charges Hefty Fee

It looks like Netflix watched the success of Hulu Plus, and thought to themselves, “Hey boys, I think we can be making a lot more money, here!” The company has radically changed its pricing structure for its Netflix customers, and may cause many to leave.

While customers previously had the option of choosing an $8 streaming plan, they could also pay $2 to rent out one additional DVD at a time.

Google Pay-Per-View Video App Almost Ready!

Android phone and tablet users will soon get their very own app that will let them watch videos on demand. The new Google Video service will compete with current companies Netflix and Hulu in the entertainment industry.

While Hulu will still be the #1 choice for streaming the latest television shows, and Netflix will be good for those occasional independent films, Google Videos are expected to fill the entertainment gap for the average consumer.

Hulu Plus Comes To Android!

If you are Android fan, but have been bummed out lately due to the lack of video content (A.K.A Hulu Plus), you’ll be glad to hear this. Hulu Plus is now available on six Android devices (to start) and will hopefully expand to all Android devices in the future.

The supported devices include the Nexus One, Nexus S, HTC Inspire 4G, Motorola Droid II, Motorola Droid X, and the Motorola Atrix. Since I do not subscribe to the the $8 monthly service, I cannot tell you whether it will work on other Android devices, such as my HTC G2.

Rent Games On Android, Through T-Mobile

If you enjoy having Netflix shipped to your door, or GameFly giving you the option to test drive games before you buy, you may want to hear this. T-Mobile and Wild Tangent are pairing up to unleash a new rental games service, for gamers who don’t want to waste money on games they don’t like.

Although with most Android apps, you can return the game within 15 minutes of purchase, sometimes it takes longer than that time frame to make a decision on whether a game is worth it.

Xbox Live Integrated In Windows 8

It looks like Microsoft has just revealed something interesting about its new Xbox Live service, and that is that the new service will be integrated into Windows 8. The Vice President of Global Marketing at Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business group, Mike Delman, had this to say, “[Xbox Live] has been successful on the Windows Phone. Live will be built into the PC.”

Delman continued to say that it will be the service where one gets their entertainment. It seems like Microsoft seeks to incorporate their successful devices across-platforms encouraging Xbox owners to buy a PC and Windows 8 users to buy an Xbox. Clever cross-selling strategy. If I weren’t bitter about my Xbox360 giving me the Red Ring of Death, I’d probably be a proponent of the initiative.

AT&T Gets Greedier: Caps Internet + Charges Overages

AT&T has started capping its Internet service for both broadband and DSL customers. This happens almost one year after the company implemented a similar cap on the mobile service. The new limits for U-verse are 250GB of Internet per month and 150GB for ATT DSL users. Customers who exceed their limit will be charged an extra $10 for each 50GB used. AT&T has never been greedier. The company already has overly priced data and talk plans in its wireless department, and now does not offer unlimited Internet on any platform.
