    It's official...

    HULU is now updating for phones and tablets to add Chromecast.

    I am using it now on my HTC Rezound and Nexus 7.

    Works like a charm.

    I hope this is a taste of more to come.

    That's great news. The big brown truck is bringing my chromecast today.

    It is encouraging to see Hulu support the chromecast. Unfortunately, it only works with the Hulu Plus app on the mobile device... and that app requires a subscription.

    It doesn't look like there is a way to watch the free Hulu content without tab casting still.

    I wouldn't even be using Hulu+ if I wasn't using my folks' account. I only really use it to watch Parks & Recreation and SNL.

    Well...it works if you can get an .apk

    Hulu Plus is now gone from the Play Store.

    I did, and it was gone, checked across several platforms. It finally just reappeared. Google Play has been having tons of issues today it seems. Wouldn't even let me listen to my music on my phone. I really like Google and hope they stop effing around with us today.

    Got the Chromecast today. Everything works great except for Hulu, it has difficulty loading and pauses a ton. I gave up 3 minutes into an SNL episode.

    Had one pause this evening,while casting from GN3 to TV earlier this evening.right at the beginning of a TV episode,acted like it was coughing up a hairball. :p

    I just hit pause,rewind,started it over & the entire episode played w/o incident,while performing serious multi-tasking/setting up the new phone.

    I was quite impressed,worked well & consider myself fortunate,as I have had virtually ZERO problems w/CHROMECAST since opening day. :)

    Was able to watch SNL tonight without any pausing on Hulu.

    I have 2 Chromecast units and both have worked flawlessly on all of the official app's (Google Movies / Google Music / Youtube / Netflix / Hulu+).

    Can't wait for more....

    As I also have a WDTV Streaming unit that gives me more choices, but it is clunky to use...

    The clunkiness is the exact reason I ordered the Chromecast despite already having a smart hub enabled Blu-Ray player. I don't understand why Samsung made such a terrible interface for interacting with the apps. My roommates are still stuck with it though, since I'm the only one with a Netflix account and I'm not giving them the password to sign in on their phones.
