Hulu Plus Brings Free Content to Android Users in Latest App Update

Starting today, after updating the official Hulu Plus app in Google Play, Android users are being treated to free content, courtesy of Hulu. For some odd reason, Hulu has granted Android users to sample free content, just as you would on their website from anywhere you are, as long as you have a data connection.

Undoubtedly an attempt to get you signed up for their monthly service, which runs $7.99, Hulu is allowing access to the latest and past episodes of a few good shows, including America’s Got Talent, and more.

Here is a excerpt from the company’s announcement. 

Today we are pleased to announce an update to our Hulu app for Android that gives users a taste of our comprehensive library with a selection of free content on Android phones and tablets. In addition to the latest and past episodes of popular current TV shows, users will be able to enjoy a selection of content from Hulu Originals, Anime, Kids, Movies and Latino. The content available on the updated app will mirror the ad-supported Hulu.com with a few exceptions.

If you are a fan of free stuff, c’mon, we know you are, go grab the update and get to watching.

    Thanks for the article Tim. Netflix app (or Hulu, or BBC, etc) is great on Android. If live outside USA, you can use tools like UnoTelly to get Netflix (or Hulu, or BBC, etc) on your Android.

    Until they kill the commercials on hulu plus (paid sub), I won’t touch hulu.

  • SewWhat

    America’s got talent is a good show?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      I mean it’s pretty entertaining. I prefer it to the typical singing shows

  • Bryan Mills

    And Tim. I think you mean “Cheers Robert” not “Robery” lol

    • cns2007

      LOL. As I sent the in the tip, you would be correct. It’s a crime, I tell ya.

      I kid. They’ve gotten it right all other times, so no worries.

    Hulu: Where you pay monthly but still see ads!

    • JRomeo

      Cable television (Comcast, Brighthouse, Etcetera) does the same thing… you pay monthly but still see commercials !

  • Bryan Mills

    Yeah pay for a service, still have ads!

    Okay, some free stuff.

    • Like TV… Or Satellite radio… or Internet… Or Newspapers… Or magazines… You’re right, no one in the history of American business has ever done that!

      • stang68

        Netflix, Amazon Prime don’t make you.

        • trixnkix637

          They’re also not delivering you an episode the day after it airs. I’m sure the costs with that justify the ads. Besides it’s only 30 seconds at maybe 3 times an episode. I play on Facebook & Instagram waay longer than that.

      • Bryan Mills

        Netflix? HBO? Amazon? Nope.

      • George Isaacs

        And speaking of business, how is Hulu Plus doing compared to Netflix? What could change that?

  • Chromecast support included for free users?

    (I ask because in many apps Chromecast support is “premium”)

    • Justin Callahan

      Nope. When you try it says it is only for hulu plus subs.

      • JoshGroff

        Did they finally add all of season 2 for Arrow? Last I checked, they had like 5 episodes…

        • DigitalEnforcer

          I would go to netflix for season 2 of Arrow. It should be on there soon if not already. As for season 3, Hulu Plus is good for watching shows the day after they actually get shown on tv. I don’t know why, but some of their episodes have a limited time they can be up on Hulu Plus, but it’s SO random. So episode 1 will be there, while episode 4 expires in 3 days. It’s kinda stupid.

          • JoshGroff

            Good to know, thanks. 😀

      • El Big CHRIS

        This sucks. I want to cancel my subscription and just use it for the free stuff, but if it doesnt support chromecast it’s a bust for me.

      • should work with the screen mirroring mode though, no? But it’ll probably lag like crazy

        • Travis Halfman

          Not so much. Tested with Nexus 10 and an episode of South Park. Looked and sounded good.

          • Oh nice. Good to know.
