In its latest promotional stunt to sell more of its Android tablets, VIZIO announced today that its VIZIO Tablet owners are all entitled to three free months of a Hulu Plus subscription. Hulu Plus, one of the most popular video streaming services on the internet has a native Android app that comes preloaded on the VIZIO Tablet. This new promotion benefits both VIZIO and Hulu as consumers have an incentive to purchase the Android tablet, and Hulu gets the opportunity to convert a free viewer into a paying subscriber (for $7.99 a month).
And if you’ve read our review of the VIZIO Tablet, despite its weak benchmark results, the tablet actually performs well when used for playing back HD video, so you know that the tablet will function well as a device for streaming your Hulu programs. The updated Hulu Plus app that gives 3-months of free service to new users will start rolling out to VIZIO Tablets today.
