iPhone Application of Hulu
Hulu is developing an app for the Apple's iPhone and iPod touch and should be launched in a few months. Also the application will work over Wi-Fi and At&T's and 3G network, meaning that users will be able to view program anywhere with a fast data connections.
Hulu's tech and design teams have demonstrated themselves as the best in the Web video industry, as everyone is now trying to emulate them. One hurdle, we assume: Because of Hulu's streaming architecture, it might not be possible to download videos to watch later, such as on the subway or an airplane.
It won't be the first Web video app for the iPhone -- CBS's TV.com app is on the market, as are Joost, i.TV and several others -- but it could be the best.
One of the things that keep this rumor from holding water is that Hulu is in direct competition with Apple's iTunes business. Users of Hulu can watch ad-supported, full-length television shows and movies on their personal computers for free, instead of paying Apple to download a copy for offline viewing.
d be the best.
Mobile video has not taken off yet, mainly because most services -- offered by carriers -- are too expensive, or look terrible. Just over 3% of mobile subscribers watch video on their phones, according to comScore. An iPhone Hulu app, on the other hand, could be very popular.
