Hulu Plus Updated to Support Additional Devices Including Thunderbolt


Hulu made a big chunk of the Android world happy a couple of weeks ago when they announced the availability of their Plus service, but as always seems to be the case these days, HTC Thunderbolt owners were left out in the cold.  Until today, that is.  In the latest update to everyone’s favorite TV-show streaming service, the Tbolt has been added as a newly support device.  Yay!  (Support for the EVO 4G, MyTouch and G2 were also included in this update.)

Market Link

More info at Hulu’s site.

Cheers aperture and Michael!

  • My wife and i ended up being really thankful Albert could round up his homework through your ideas he received from your very own web pages. It is now and again perplexing to simply find yourself releasing tactics that some people could have been selling. We really fully understand we’ve got you to be grateful to because of that. All the illustrations you’ve made, the easy blog navigation, the relationships you make it possible to instill – it’s got mostly awesome, and it’s really letting our son and the family understand that subject matter is amusing, which is incredibly essential. Thanks for all the pieces!

      Download AdFree Android from the market, and click the “revert” button to reset your hosts file. This fixed it for me.

      • OMG – AMAZING – AMAZING !!!!!!!!!!!!!    IT WORKS – NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!  Thank you.

      • By the way, can you explain what reverting does?

        • Anonymous

          It resets your hosts file back to stock default. You won’t have ad blocking on your phone when it’s like that. If you have root explorer, go to /system/etc/ and open the hosts file in a text editor if you want to see what it does.

          if you don’t know what a hosts file is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosts_file

          • Thanks for the explanation.  What is confusing to me is that Hulu didn’t work when I uninstalled adfree completely, which essentially would produce the same results as not having, as you say, ad blocking on the phone.

          • Anonymous

            Yeah that is weird. You would think that uninstalling AdFree wouldn’t have any effect once your hosts file is changed.

            I tried editing my hosts file manually before I saw the AdFree solution on the xda forums, and that didn’t work for me. Hulu+ kept force closing. So maybe AdFree does something other than just change the hosts file.

            Oh well, a fix is a fix.

          • It is interesting.  Because removing adfree completely, didn’t get Hulu Plus to work.  But reinstalling adfree and clicking revert, seemed to do the trick.

  • good by netflix

    I can’t remember not being a netflix customer but today is my last. Hulu plus here I come…

    • good by netflix

      Working great on my stock tbolt. 3g and WiFi.

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, GrabPenny.com

  • I get a “This device is not supported for streaming” error on CM7 Thunderbolt.

    • Dustin Estep

      Same here, not sure what to do

  • Magman117

    Wow just in time for the Netflix price increase and its inability to play on my Thunderbolt. I just joined hulu+. If there is no Netflix on my Thunderbolt by 9/1 I’m history!

  • Nyfan3

    isnt compatible with t-bolts running cm7… 🙁

  • Max

    i am wondering if hulu is better than netflix

    • Darb

      They are just different. Some content redundancy, but not much. Hulu has current shows to view but not every episode in many cases. When netflix has a show available to stream it will be the complete series up to the last season released on home video, but nothing more current than that.

    Now, if only Google updated Android market with a means of, I don’t know, paying for a service/app to remove ads within the application…if. only.

  • Anonymous

    Do we still get ads?

  • Elrutt

    well i just did a search for it and even went through the link given above and didnt find it anywhere in the market….. WTF!!!!

  • Anonymous

    to all you T’Bolt owners who want Hulu, but don’t want to pay for it on your phone … enjoy


  • StanleySpadowski

    What is the deal with the T-bolt? Why do so many things not work on it? I have a droid x, but was just curious.

  • Q

    Yay for Android Fragmentation!

  • Bert336

    Buffering……It appears you are having network issues.  Please wait, or try again later.

    • Anonymous

      I’m curious if you’ve tried this with ad blocking off.

      • Mr. Joshua

        I did on BAMF 3.0 and it gives the same message.

      • BG

        Thanks for the Suggestion when I turned off AD blocking it worked like a charm.

    • I uninstalled adfree, and I still get the message about network issues, and the scrolling wheel. *sigh*

  • Doesn’t work on my Thunderbolt with CM7 🙁

  • We tried Hulu plus and found that their library was reduced by half when you subscribed.  Is that still the case?

  • John Hicks

    Shows up as unsupported device on rooted TBolt.

  • Karate Baker

    I got it on my thunderbolt this morning. Works great. Awesome!

  • Ables

    What good timing they have!!!

  • Matt

    Now when is it going to come out for honeycomb (The Xoom)

  • Anonymous

    For some reason, it is not yet available for me to download on my TBolt…


  • Mr. Joshua

    It won’t play for me. Anyone able to get it playing? I get a buffering error

    • John

      I got the same thing.  I’m running Liquid’s Thunderbread 2.3.  I’ll try it again on stock (rooted) at some point when I restore that ROM.

      • Anonymous

        My hunch is that it’s caused by ad blocking. The problem is, I can’t figure out how to turn off ad blocking on my particular rom. They just changed the hosts file I guess. I tried to edit the hosts file myself, and now hulu force closes every time instead of giving me a buffering error. Whoops.

        • Mr. Joshua

          I turned off ad blocking in the BAMF toolkit (3.0 Rom) and I am also now getting a force close. Interesting. I turned the ad blocking back on and am still getting the force close…

          • Anonymous

            What happens if you run fix permissions in rom manager?

          • Mr. Joshua

            Tried that and rebooted – no luck.

            One more thing to try. Download AdFree Android from the market, and click the “revert” button to reset your hosts file. This fixed it for me.

          • Mr. Joshua

            That worked!!! Thanks for your help!
