Hulu Plus No Longer Supports the Galaxy Nexus

By  |  11 Comments

It another piece of bad news for owners of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus – in addition to the Google Wallet and battery life problems, it appears that Hulu has gone ahead and dropped support for the first 4G LTE Nexus device. We heard from a few people this morning that the application no longer offered support for the device and we’ve now confirmed this to be the case. Other sites are confirming the same thing.

So, what happens when you try and open up the application?

Exactly what you see in this here screenshot.

The odd thing is, the application was working perfectly fine earlier this week which makes this pretty darn suspicious. Hulu hasn’t said anything and we are currently stumped as to why the application has lost support for one of Verizon’s most popular devices.

Hulu Plus

Obviously, we’re hoping that this is just temporary and not a long term issue because Hulu is one of the applications that’s able to take advantage of the Galaxy Nexus’ 4G LTE speeds.

This issue comes amidst several issues that the Android 4.0-powered device is facing including complaints from owners about battery life, weak signals – which will be fixed with an update, and the fact that Google Wallet does not work with the phone’s NFC chip.

The last thing that the Galaxy Nexus needed was another black eye but it appears that that has happened.

We’ll update you on the situation when more information comes to the surface. But at this time, you’re going to have to live without Hulu Plus on your Galaxy Nexus.

      Joke? Android out numbers iOS at least 2-1 and outnumbers other mobile platforms many times over that. Android is evolving quickly, which sometime sucks, but at least its the not same looking software as iOS has been since 2007. 

      Apple: Lets add Siri and notifications and call it iOS 5. =/ Really?

        Yep, yep, you’re right. And with all that market share you get to have a different user experience with every manufacturer – well model even. 

        Android is proving that it really isn’t a platform. It’s a cheap way for technology also rans to be in the smartphone business. Both iOS and Windows Phone offer a more consistent user experience. I have to hand it to Microsoft, they are doing a decent job in providing a vendor neutral platform and are getting no respect for it.

        Can’t wait to see what happens to Android once the Motorola Mobility purchase is finalized.

           At Least I can use flash to get free tv and movies on my phone, and get free apps from the market, and not be nickel and dimed to death paying apple for every single app, video, book, music, etc. That’s the only reason apple didn’t want flash to begin with, because their customers would be able to get free stuff w/out a nickel going to apple. Flash may suck but it works and  at least I have the option with android.  
           
          Plus apple dropped the ball with the 4s, not 4g, only half a gig ram, and siri (which uses google to answer all your questions, lolz, yeah, look it up its true).  Apple is for hipsters and people who are followers, because android and windows are leading the way with options for the intelligent user. Guess that’s why IOS devs are now marketing their apps to android and quite a few left/ leaving IOS for Android, look it all up, it’s the truth.
           
          So go a head and bitch more cause I know the truth hurts.

    It took patience to get this phone and it will take patience to get the issues resolved. HULU+ will work on the GNex.

    Wallet works fine on the Galaxy Nexus, Just not available through the Market. This is a Verizon issue, not a Galaxy Nexus issue.

    Lol I have a LTE galaxy nexus with a custom rom and am experiencing 0 problems and actually used Google wallet 2xs so far with the 10 dollar credit Google gives you. Whoever has android knows about rooting and custom roms and if you don’t stick to the iPhone for the simple folk.:)
