Hulu surpassed their goal for this year, and was able to hit more than a million subscribers that are willing to pay for their subscriptions.

Hulu was reported to have more than one million customers who’s willing to pay for the company’s $8/month subscription. Jason Kilar, CEO of Hulu, is said to make a prediction earlier this year that their Hulu Plus app would get one million subscribers before the 2011 ends. However, the said executive confirmed that the goal was reached before the end of the summer.

Jason Kilar also boasted at the Goldman Sachs investor conference that the company is preparing itself to spend over $375 million for content this year. The range of TV shows and movies is expected to continually expand.

Regardless of the apparent successes, Hulu – which is jointly owned by News Corp, Walt Disney Co., NBC Universal and Providence Equity Partners – is still trying to find a buyer . Unconfirmed reports claimed that Google is one of the potential suitors, even if several other companies are said to have put up bids of up to $2 billion.

Hulu is expanding their list of devices that are supported by their Hulu Plus app. Hooray!

Hulu is continuing to widen their list of Android devices that are supported by their Hulu Plus app. The latest release adds support for a variety of smartphones. These includes HTC’s Incredible 2, EVO 3D and Sensation; Motorola’s Droid 3, Bionic and X2; and LG’s Revolution and G2X.

Aside from the handsets, the said app can also be accessed from HTC’s Flyer tablet. Expanded support looks like to be the primary feature of the recent update, though it also promises to improve playback performance.

The Hulu app is currently available as a free download from the Android Market, but users must still have a paid Hulu Plus subscription to view its streaming content.

Hulu Plus Arriving on Xbox 360, April 29

Hulu Plus for Xbox 360 might be Microsoft's move to capitalize on Sony's troublesome PSN crisis. But will it work?

We could speculate that this move is taking advantage of PSN’s (PlayStation Network) current crisis. But of course, that’s only a speculation. Either way, it looks like there’s no stopping Hulu from jumping into the Xbox 360, as a scan of OXM magazine reveals that Hulu Plus will be making its debut on the console this April 29.

According to the OXM magazine scan, the launch of Hulu Plus will be celebrated with a contest where prizes will be given away to random Hulu Plus users. The prizes include Beach Resort trips, free Xbox 360 bundles and Hulu Plus subscriptions. The contest will run from April 29 until May 30.

Microsoft has neither confirmed nor deny the report, but it would make sense if they’ll go all out with Xbox 360’s services now that PSN activities have been halted temporarily. But is this enough to bring Sony followers to the Xbox side? GADG’s guess is as good as yours, “No.” But we may be wrong.
