How to watch Hulu Plus on Galaxy SII Skyrocket and pretty much every other Android device

Thanks to developer/hacker Vgeezy, Hulu Plus can now be enjoyed as an application on every Android handset/tablet available, even the ones that were not deemed compatible by Hulu. One such device is the new LTE enablet Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocekt launched several months ago by AT&T and my favorite smartphone at this point. You can download two variants of modded Hulu Plus apk from here (portrait orientation) and from here (landscape modded orientation) for devices that lack a portrait mode. I can confirm it works on my Skyrocket and reports confirm it working on Motorola Xoom, Archos 101 G9, Galaxy Nexus, Asus Transformer TF101, HTC HD2, Viewsonic G Tablet, Motorola Atrix 2, Evo, etc. Just be sure to disable any ad blocking apps you might have installed, or at least configure them to let Hulu Plus through.

At this point, unfortunately the modded Hulu Plus apk doesn’t work with any Google TV variants, the main reason being the x86 architecture and the lack of the needed libraries. Well, one can always hope that the next version will!
