    Here's some pretty cool news for Chromecast users. Hulu updated their Hulu Plus app to officially support the Google device. This requires an active Hulu Plus subscription which costs $7.99 per month. Now it's as easy as hitting the new 'Cast Button' in the Hulu Plus app to begin streaming your Hulu account across the Chromecast. Here's a quote from Google's blog on the subject,

    So, this is why Google chose to lock down Chromecast and not give users the ability to "cast" their own local videos. Hmmm. :frown:

    Would be nice if I could watch Hulu for free like I can on a computer using the Chromecast, hell would be nice if I could watch Hulu for free on an Android device period.

    $7.99/month ain't worth it Hulu. You are not Netflix.

    Lower your price to maybe $4.99/month and you got yourself a deal.

    ^^ This. I did a trial of Hulu.. lasted one show. If I'm paying to stream something, the commercials shouldn't be there. I can just turn on the TV if I want to see them
