NetFlix is starting to show up all over the place in the world of Android. We’ve also gotten word that Hulu Plus is working with select Android phones. As far as officially endorsed Android tablets, Hulu Plus is headed to the Vizio tablet first.
Vizio’s 8″ tablet comes with Android 2.3, Gingerbread, instead of Android 3.0 Honeycomb, like the rest of the wave of current Android tablets. The Vizio tablet is a little different though. Of course it’s not the standard 10″ tablet, or the upcoming 7″ tablet. It’s actually more of a square device than a rectangle, but more importantly it integrates as your home remote better than the best “multi purpose” IR Remote controls. Check out the video below of when we had our first demo of the Vizio tablet.

Of course it functions on the same level as the original Samsung Galaxy Tab and the HTC Flyer. Also with Gingerbread vs Honeycomb it’s open to a lot more apps than there are currently available for Honeycomb tablets.
As for Hulu, using the Hulu Plus app on your Android device will require a $7.99 a month Hulu subscription. Hulu does give you access to more of the latest tv programs, and a lot quicker than rival Netflix. According to one of our sources Hulu does have plans to make an official Honeycomb build of Hulu Plus .
