Vizio 8-inch tablet with WiFi gets support for Hulu Plus

We have talked more than once about the cheap and cool Vizio 8-inch Android tablet. The tablet is now at retailers around the country for $299 making it a cheap tablet option. Vizio has announced that the tablet will now support Hulu Plus. I think we all knew this support was coming to the tablet since Hulu plus and Netflix are two of the most popular video streaming services out there.

The Hulu Plus service on the Vizio 8-inch tablet will cost subscribers $7.99 monthly for access. We already know all about Hulu and the shows it offers. This is a great service for catching up with your favorite shows past and present. The tablet also has the integrated universal remote software for Vizio home theater gear.

At the $299 price the Vizio tablet should be appealing to people that don’t use Vizio home theater gear. The tablet packs in 2GB of memory with support for up to 32GB more via a microSD card. We reviewed the tablet not long ago. We found the tablet lacking in performance compared to the dual-core tablets on the market but an update to boost performance is expected.

“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.”
