Once unlocked, owners will have more freedom to install custom software on their Android smartphones.
Hulu recently updated its Android application making it compatibile with four more handsets. All four are made by HTC, and include the EVO 4G, Droid Thunderbolt, myTouch, and G2. The application is free to download, but Hulu Plus costs $7.99 per month.

The app supports resuming watching content where you left off watching on your TV or computer. Netflix already offers mobile apps for Apple iOS and Microsoft Windows Phone devices.
