RIM pushes for Hulu access on the Blackberry PlayBook
RIM is working with Hulu to bring Hulu Plus to the BlackBerry PlayBook after Hulu blocked BlackBerry PlayBook users from accessing Hulu.com on Thursday, just days after the tablet launched in stores. PC Mag
and The Wall Street Journal
are reporting the same email statement from RIM on a resolution:
"We are in conversations with Hulu to bring the Hulu Plus subscription service to BlackBerry PlayBook users."
Rather bland and predictable statement, right? Hulu traditionally blocks non-desktop access on tablets, mobile phones, and set-top boxes in order to encourage users to subscribe to its new Hulu Plus service for $7.99/month. Perhaps we'll see a quick resolution to this conflict. We'll keep you updated on any changes.
