RIM Seeks Hulu Access for PlayBook Users
BlackBerry maker Research In Motion Ltd. said Friday it’s in talks with Hulu LLC about gaining paid access to the video website’s content for users of its new tablet device, the PlayBook.
Hulu blocked access to its shows and movies from PlayBook users this week as part of its broader strategy to make content available on mobile devices only through its new $7.99-per-month subscription service, Hulu Plus.
“We are in conversations with Hulu to bring the Hulu Plus subscription service to BlackBerry PlayBook users,” said a spokeswoman for RIM in an email. Representatives for Hulu were unavailable for comment.
