Hulu Blocks BlackBerry’s PlayBook Tablet From Accessing Content

Apr 22, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Hulu has blocked owners of BlackBerry’s PlayBook tablet from accessing TV shows and other content from the devices, reports Time.com’s Techland blog.

PlayBook users were previously able to access free content from Hulu’s website through their devices. But Hulu blocked the activity, noting in an error message: "We notice that you are trying to access Hulu from your BlackBerry browser. Right now, this device is not supported."

Reportedly, the reason Hulu has blocked access is that Hulu Plus, the fee-based subscription service, isn’t yet on PlayBook, meaning Hulu is not yet able to charge the monthly $8 fee to PlayBook users.
