We’ve seen many different Android apps that have brought us streaming audio, from Pandora and Slacker internet radio to AudioGalaxy that streams your own music off your PC. We’ve also seen a few different apps for streaming video, but not the two biggest, most popular internet video sources: Netflix and HuluPlus. Well, that’s about to change.
Unwired View has a Youtube video up that shows off their hands-on with the LG Revolution, and it has a Netflix icon, standing front and center. While it’s only speculative that this is full-on streaming video and not just a mobile queue viewer, given the direction that Netflix and Android are going, that’s definitely the most logical offering. More and more Android phones are coming with HDMI, and 4G networks are expanding, so it makes perfect sense to be able to take your entire Netflix library with you while you’re on the go. I love the idea of having a 4G phone with HDMI out, so you can be streaming your Netflix when you’re hanging out at a friend’s place or anywhere you are.
In addition to that, Hulu posted on their blog that they’re HuluPlus service will be available on Android in the upcoming months, as well. Anyone who pays for both services should have a TON of content available for streaming on their Android devices very soon.
Hulu, Netflix, 4G, HDMI? Sounds like a recipe for success. Excited to see these things develop!
