Official VIZIO Press Release announcing Hulu Plus Support:

Hulu Plus Now Available from Android Market Bringing Even More Entertainment Options to VIZIO Tablet Users

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — VIZIO, America’s #1 LCD HDTV Company*, announced today that the new VIZIO 8″ Tablet with WiFi will support the Hulu Plus™ subscription service. The highly-anticipated app will bring the extensive library of TV and film content from over hundreds of providers and independent creators to subscribers using the VIZIO Tablet for just $7.99 per month.

Allowing users to find and enjoy premium content on their own schedule, the Hulu Plus™ subscription service complements VIZIO’s mission to bring high-quality technology and “Entertainment Freedom™” to consumers at an extraordinary value. The subscription service offers instant access to current and past seasons of shows like 30 Rock, Modern Family, The X-Files, Arrested Development and Family Guy.

Last week, VIZIO’s feature-packed, multi-media Tablet hit retailers nationwide at a price of $299. Designed with “Entertainment Freedom” in mind, the WiFi enabled VIZIO Tablet comes equipped with unique features like a three-speaker configuration for enhanced audio in landscape or portrait modes, built in universal remote app for home theater control and a HDMI® port for HD playback on the big screen. The addition of Hulu Plus bolsters the entertainment value of the sub-$300 VIZIO Tablet, making it one of the most affordable, media centric, Android-powered Tablets on the market.

“The VIZIO Tablet was designed to provide a world class Internet content experience and we are proud to be one of the first Android-powered tablets to support Hulu Plus™,” said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. “VIZIO is committed to delivering innovative products to consumers that break new ground, deliver new services and address gaps in the industry.”

According to early 2011 data from the Nielson Company, video streaming increased by 28% from last January. Not only are more people using video streaming, but 45% of viewers are spending more time watching the content they selected. With more consumers choosing to view content via non-traditional channels, VIZIO viewed this as an opportunity to create a Tablet with an industry leading media-centric experience.
