Rumors of a Hulu app have swarmed the net since the first presentation of the iPad, according to sources, it now seems as if those rumors could be on their way to becoming true.
Sources are claiming that Hulu will be expanding out to “multiple devices” within the next month or so. However only the iPad and Xbox 360 were mentioned by name, furthermore as rumored in the past the sources also mentioned was that the company will be offering up a subscription service.
Before you get all angry, the sources state that the subscription service will only be for older episodes of your favorite TV shows as well as other media, however the newer episodes of various shows will remain free.
While Hulu didn’t announced anything at this week’s WWDC, many are expecting the reason for this is that they want to wait until next week’s E3 gaming expo.
Are you waiting for Hulu for the iPad or have you already invested in a Netflix account?
According to sources, Skype is eager to work with any companies that might want to work with their potential video chatting features as soon as they’re ready.
Endgadget quotes that Skype “would welcome the opportunity to work with Apple,” such as meshing with the FaceTime capabilities into Skype’s app.
The source also told Engadget that Skype would definitely “welcome the opportunity to work with Apple to bring mobile video calling not only to our many millions of Skype users on iPhone around the world, but also to the countless more making video calls on desktops, TVs and other connected devices.”
Of course as with most rumors, no details, nor a timeframe has been considered yet, so of course this rumor should e taken for what it currently is, a rumor. We believe however that when you look at how much FaceTime has to offer, certainly more video calling apps like what Skype offers will be released in the future.
Since Apple even have their own chat tool that includes video, you might expect that iChat will be FaceTime friendly before too long.
