Hulu will allow free viewing on mobile this summer

New, 48 comments

Those who don't subscribe to Hulu will be able to watch it on more devices starting this summer. At an event in New York this morning, Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins announced that the streaming service will begin letting viewers watch a selection of TV shows on mobile devices, rather than only allowing free viewing on the desktop. Hulu began to open up on mobile last year, but even today it still limits viewers to watching select clips, and not full episodes. Free episodes will arrive on Android first, and then come to iOS. A redesigned iPhone app will be also be launching later this summer.

Hopkins also reiterated that Hulu is still in talks with pay-TV providers to begin integrating Hulu with their cable boxes. It's an integration that would be a big coup for Hulu, but Hopkins had nothing to say about the progress of those talks just yet.
