Hulu spends a great deal of time blocking workarounds that allow people to watch Hulu on Android or mobile devices. That may not be an issue much longer if you're willing to spend $9.99 a month to watch your favorite shows.

Hulu CEO Jason Kilar has officially announced Hulu Plus, an invitation-only subscription service that will allow fans to watch content outside of Hulu.com. By singing-up for the $9.99 monthly plan, Hulu will offer streaming of all episodes of a current season and the entire catalogue of popular shows like X-Files (sci-fi legend) and Arrested Development (woefully under-appreciated).

At the moment, only Samsung Blu-Ray player, select Samsung app-capable televisions, and iPhone/iPad owners will be able to use the Hulu app. However, we can speculate that it's likely to arrive on Android given previous search results revealed that Hulu is working on Android, and the following statements by Kilar:

This is just the first step in our mission to bring you TV wherever you are. We are already hard at work on porting Hulu Plus to other devices and platforms, with PlayStation 3 coming soon. But that's a story for another day.

Considering the rise of Android phones and potential flurry of tablets and Google TV, Android is an obvious choice for being one of the next platforms to offer Hulu Plus?

Non-U.S. readers don't have to ignore this message completely. Though Hulu is currently a U.S.-only service, it's working on operating in more countries. There's a mountain of licensing and financing deals that need to take place for that to happen, but Hulu hasn't forgotten about you.

YOU MUST REQUEST AN INVITE IN ORDER TO SIGN-UP FOR HULU PLUS. REQUEST ONE AT THIS LINK.
