Leave it to hackers to do what Hulu and media companies couldn’t â€“ or wouldn’t. A hacked version of Hulu Plus is now available that allows for hypothetically any Android device to access the service that streams TV episodes and movies to subscribers. It comes with a $7.99 per month price tag and the occasional 30-second ad, but is an easy way to get access to a library of up-to-date content.
This essentially solves the annoying issue of Hulu Plus only being limited to a few devices, which ironically has probably increased piracy of content available on the service. After all, pirated copies don’t have any DRM and are playable on anything that supports the file format it comes in. So, essentially, hackers are making it easier to legally view content on Android devices, which the media companies are preventing. DRM continues to be a counterintuitive mess. The hacked APKs are available form the source link below. Hulu Plus worked on the Motorola Xoom when I tested it out, which is a good thing, because I need to catch up on Revenge!
