Orb Live Brings Hulu Support and New UI to Android in Latest Release


Orb Live introduced the latest version of their app this morning which just so happens to include Hulu support.  And no, we aren’t talking Hulu+ paid support, we are talking the free streaming you get when you jump on their site via computer.  To be clear though, the app isn’t necessarily pulling straight from Hulu to your phone, but is instead pulling a feed from your computer and then making it playable on your phone.  Did that make sense?

So in order to get Hulu up and streaming on your phone, you will need to buy this new Orb Live app for $9.99, install some software on your PC or Mac, and then have at it.  You can also pull any other media content that’s on your home computer (music, photos, videos, Pandora, etc.) – just make sure it has an internet connection at all times.

    Anyone know if this is any better than it used to be.. RARELY worked on my Droid1, and never worked on my tablet… I was trying the free one that randomly selects files though.. In the past, It was rare to find even a forum post with good things to say about this app. I’m not dropping $10 on an app that doesn’t work. If things are better, i’d gladly pay for it.

    So, I could watch a show on my ASUS Transformer via my laptop if my laptop was up and running their software as well.  But, (I haven’t tried this yet since getting it) there still isn’t a way to just watch free Hulu shows from it yet like I can from my laptop?  Why the stupid double standard?

      woow i’m still astonished ,I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use BidsBug.com

    I used orb for my xbox, it was fail. it continues to process a show after you stop it, and that uses alot of CPU on your PC.

      That’s not uncommon.  Happens on the PlayOn software.  In PlayOn there is an option that lets you decide if you want to download the whole video at once.  That allows you to fast forward and rewind, but causes the problem you describe.  There might be a similar option in Orb you could turn off that would fix it.

  • Already use Orb for my laptop, so this will be a nice addition! thanks Kellex!

  • First!
