RIM "In Talks" With Hulu For Continued PlayBook Access
But it looks as if RIM is hoping to change that for their PlayBook. According to a new Wall Street Journal report, RIM is currently "in talks with Hulu about gaining paid access to the video website's content," though it's unclear if it'll work. The block is being done in order to force users onto their $7.99/month Hulu Plus program, but strongarming people just doesn't seem like a great idea. A RIM spokesperson had this to say: "We are in conversations with Hulu to bring the Hulu Plus subscription service to BlackBerry PlayBook users."
Will the PlayBook gain a competitive edge over competing tablets that are forced to use Hulu Plus? It's entirely possible, but it'll probably take an awful lot of sweet-talking.
