Did you watch the Primetime Emmy Awards and wish that it was easier to watch some of those honored television shows on your Android phone? Well, you’re in luck, because Hulu will soon announce that it’s expanding its supported device list.

The Hulu Blog posted an announcement titled “Android Rollout Continues on Nine Devices” early this morning. The author must have jumped the gun because it was removed quickly and there’s no longer any sign of it on the blog. However, it wasn’t removed before my Google Reader picked up the feed and revealed the list of upcoming devices.

The Motorola Droid Bionic, Droid 3, and Droid X2; LG Revolution and G2x; and HTC Incredible 2, Evo 3D, and Sensation are next in line to get Hulu Plus support. Also in queue is the HTC Flyer, the first Android tablet other than the Vizio Via to get Hulu Plus support. The Android Market page has yet to update, but the supported device page has been changed to reflect the newly-included. Keep an eye out if you have one of these devices and want to watch Hulu on Android.

As a reminder, you can always check to see if your Android device supports Hulu. A $7.99 per month Hulu+ subscription is required to watch episodes on the go, but a list of supported phones and tablets is maintained at http://www.hulu.com/plus/devices.

UPDATE

The app is now live!

P.S. Hulu, if you ever want to get me to pay you $7.99, now would be a really good time to add support for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
