Hulu going mobile on iPhone a scam?

April 9th, 2011

The highly rated BBC live internet TV supporter ‘iPlayer’ has had a HD makeover. Now arguably the best online TV service is available in arresting high definition format.

Anthony Rose. Controller of media & technology called the HD and other improvments ‘the most significant release since the service went live’. Full list of changes include:-
Improved video calibre
The accepted definition (SD), 1500Kbps stream has had the quality improved to one thats “pretty close to TV quality” said Rose, “as good as most Freeview channels”. The standard quality on standard viewing has been increased from 500Kbps to 800Kbps. Previously this quality was only available as a HQ (high quality) option.

Adaptive Bitrate
iPlayer checks your connection speedings to have got the highest each user can handle. You can see that make happening in a new diagnostics test that shows how fast your connection actually is and what video quality you can watch.
iPlayer on your TV
Any spectator that has Windows Media Extender enabled television can download iPlayer programmes and watch them on the big concealment.
 The revamped BBC site is now in our HD TV section. Other tweaks are coming in the next couple of months followed by a summer new release. Those BBC boys dont mess or so. Hulu are you taking note?

Apple fans rejoice – Rumour is that a Hulu app is coming to iphone and ipod devices allowing users to watch free tv streams on the portable devices.

Hulu has already grabbed a large slicing of the internet tv market thanks to its website filled with top tv shows and movies, but are free not making money using PC streams. With the iPhone application, Hulu could be in front of a new audience. Attracting more advertisers to the new peregrine tv sector.
However there could be problems with a new iPhone Hulu app. AT&T may not take kind to video streams using their data network.  No firm date has been set for release of the app, the new iPhone OS 3.0 update will however allow developers to build streaming media into their applications. And this may be when a release date coincides.
