Deal: 2 Free Months of Hulu Plus With the Purchase of a Chromecast

Beginning October 1, running through the end of the year, purchasers of Chromecast dongles can get two free months of Hulu Plus. That represents a savings of about $16.

Deals aside, Google’s venerable streaming dongle continues to impress as more and more apps add casting capabilities. A couple of notable holdouts gained support a few weeks ago and the Slingbox app added it recently, too. Future additions are essentially a guarantee as Google continues to support developers who wish to add Chromecast support.  (more…)

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.  (more…)

Hulu Plus, Crackle, and Showtime Coming to Amazon Fire TV Voice Search This Summer

Shortly after Amazon announced its new Fire TV at the beginning of this month, with accurate voice search as one of its highlighted features, pundits quickly questioned its limited searching power. Fire TV’s voice search can only search Amazon content, plus content from one partner app made by Vevo. Amazon promised that more apps would soon join the party, which they have announced today as Hulu Plus, Crackle, and SHOWTIME ANYTIME.

These apps won’t enable unified voice search until this summer, but at least it’s a start or something to look forward to. Before long, I’d imagine this list will grow dramatically, assuming the Fire TV sees any sort of success.

How has your Fire TV experience been thus far? Walking Dead on it is certainly full of win.  (more…)

Hulu Plus Adds Chromecast Support to Its Android App

hulu plus chromecast

Late last night, Chromecast cast added another mega-streaming service to their minuscule lineup that up until today, had not changed since launch. Hulu Plus is now officially Chromecast-supported on Android (iOS version coming soon). The update is already live through Google Play, so if you are a Hulu Plus subscriber, you’ll want to grab the newest build and begin casting. If you aren’t a subscriber, Hulu will give you a free trial to help you decide if $7.99 per month with “limited advertising” is worth it.

The cast button should show up automatically at the top of the application (on both phones and tablets) if you have Chromecasts setup in your house.
