Hulu Plus updated with brand new tablet UI for Android

Good news today for anyone that uses Hulu. They've finally updated Hulu Plus for Android with full tablet support with a sleek new user interface and fullscreen streaming. Hulu hasn't been a very popular Android app and the user interface was quite poor if you ask me. After installing the new tablet-optimized app on my Transformer Prime I can safely say the new app is awesome, and looks great on a 10-inch screen.

Blockbuster On Demand coming to Samsung phones and tablets

Today Samsung has landed a deal with Blockbuster and their On-Demand services, and will soon be offering full On-Demand access and streaming to Samsung smartphones and tablets. Not to mention their wide array or TV's and another electronics. According to Smarthouse the service will hit devices in the US, UK, and parts of Europe during the next few months. Then head to Australia in the second half of 2012.

Google Home Entertainment System and Cloud Drive could be linked

We've already heard rumblings of the long-speculated Google cloud storage system coming to fruiting soon under the label "Google Drive". Now the rumor mill at WSJ is churning with news of a home entertainment service from the ubiquitous search engine provider, which may or may not be linked with the Android@Home project. It is coincidence that both of these stories have been leaked within hours of each other? Officially, yes; that's kind of the nature of a leak.  But unofficially it all points to a centralized, Google-hosted media hub that's accessible from any Android device, PC, or connected television.

Verizon and Redbox team up for movie streaming

It seems Verizon is planning a joint venture with Redbox to offer movie streaming and TV shows through Android, Google TV, Xbox, and iOS. It’s assumed the service will be much like that of Netflix, but with a slight twist on how users will purchase content. If you’ve ever traveled to your local gas station and picked up a Redbox rental, then you would know they only charge a dollar per rental. The catch is, if you don’t return the item before the same time the following day - you’re slapped with a late fee.

Google opens streaming film rentals to UK Android users

If you are an Android fan in the US, you have been able to rent and stream movies from Google via the Android Market for a long time. If you were an Android user in the UK the only way you could stream those rentals is by using a hack. We talked about that hack to let the streaming work in the UK back in August. You no longer need to hack things to rent movies on your Android device right from the Android Market in the UK.

Google Videos App Now Works on Gingerbread and Froyo Devices

Google's Videos app was announced and released for the Motorola XOOM back at Google I/O in May, letting you rent and watch movies on the tablet, as well as on your computer. Watching it on your phone was promised, but the app wasn't available. Until today that is. Videos has been updated in the Market and is now available for many Froyo and Gingerbread devices.

20th Century Fox Bringing Blu-ray Digital Copy Downloads to Android

For those that buy Blu-ray titles and have noticed they always come with a downloadable digital copy mostly for your PC or iDevice things are about to change and soon they will be offering them for Android. With only a few movie watching or streaming options such as Netflix for Android and Hulu having limited options and device availability, being able to download any Blu-ray you buy would be a great addition.
