Sweet jesus. Alley Insider reports Hulu is developing an iPhone app that’ll stream over 3G and Wi-Fi, and it’s “badass.” It’ll hit “within a few months.” I’ve been dreaming of this moment since Joost’s app.
30 Rock, Dollhouse, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, Arrested Development, oh yes. Any hope AT&T has of charging people a monthly fee for mobile TV dies with a Hulu app, especially once ABC jumps onboard and it hits other mobile platforms (which it surely will). If it truly delivers the full Hulu experience—every video with a great UI—the potential awesomeness literally blows my mind. Hulu CEO Jason Kilar said one year ago that mobile is “ripe for the Hulu experience” but it “may not be identical” on every platform. I’d hope the iPhone is as close to the real thing as it can get, though that obviously depends on NBC and Fox to allow it, as well. And Apple has to approve it, obviously.
But still, mobile TV was not very exciting to me until this moment. [Alley Insider]
