RIM in Talks With Hulu, Until then Use a Work Around to Watch Hulu

Just as soon as the PlayBook launched Hulu blocked the BlackBerry PlayBook from having access to their content.  On Friday we learned that RIM is in talks to bring Hulu’s mobile subscription officially to the BlackBerry PlayBook. This means that if they do come to an agreement that would cost Hulu users a monthly fee.  Some good news but not that good if you ask me.  All this did not stop people from finding ways to may it work. You have to love the creativity of individuals. One trick a user found was to copy the embedded link found on the video and then send it to themselves, once the e-mail is received there you find a hyperlink that allows you to click and watch the video. That sound a bit complicated but it works. Devin also let us know that he found a site that has posted a code to search for videos on Hulu and allows you to watch. The reason this works is that Hulu just check for the PlayBook browser and blocks it, this way you are not visiting hulu directly. Hulu may find ways to block this methods but until then enjoy some hulu content thanks to this creative individuals.

To check out the site and  search for Hulu videos follow this link to his blog.

Also the guys from theberrytechs have put up a hulu search code on their site. Check it out at this Link

A tip to make an active video screen full screen place your finger towards the bottom of the video where the video menu appears but don’t click or remove your finger hold it and drag you finger to the option to make it full screen then release. This is what has worked for me when video screen open a new tab once you click on it.

  1. Will Netflix ever be an option?

  2. I don’t think the Nintendo Wii has Silverlight but I can stream Netflix there. Then again, I don’t know what the Netflix channel on the Wii really includes so maybe it does.

  3. either way, i don’t get hulu in my country.
