RIM wants Hulu on BlackBerry PlayBook – trying to make a deal

rim blackberry playbook hulu deal

We reported last week that after the BlackBerry PlayBook had finally launched, and sales were doing well, users found that when some tried to access Hulu through the browser, they were blocked. Fear not Hulu customers/PlayBook owners, RIM is to the rescue.

Research in Motion is now apparently in talks with Hulu about getting permission/licensing to access Hulu’s services on the PlayBook. RIM had this to say;

We are in conversations with Hulu to bring Hulu Plus subscription service to BlackBerry PlayBook users,

The issue may be that Hulu’s Plus services run $7.99 a month, so it may be up to RIM to somehow subsidize those costs to bring Hulu to BlackBerry devices in the future. We don’t have word on when that may be though.
