Orb live comes to Android with free Hulu content access in tow

Orb Live has landed on the Android platform and the app promises some nice features.

Hulu Plus coming to Android 2.2 (Froyo)

Hulu has quietly leaked on their website that their popular subscription streaming TV service will join it's trifecta of Apple platforms with Android access to select OS 2.2 (Froyo) phones. There's no word on which specific handsets are supported, and frankly, does it really matter? If the phone runs Froyo, why should it matter? Well, it may be that the term "select" is to insulate Hulu from the root community out there which is placing Froyo and other Android OS flavors on older handsets.
