Hulu now finally lets users sign up for its paid Hulu Plus service inside its iPhone and iPad app, marking a truce between the media company and Apple over in-app billing. Prior to now, you had to sign up for Hulu Plus from the web and then sign into your premium account in the app, thus getting around Apple's policy of taking a percentage of all in-app billing activity.

Looking for the best iPhone apps or best iPad apps for streaming video right to your phone or tablet? Whether you want to watch — or re-watch — thousands of old movies and TV shows, keep up with current network programming, or simply stream the videos already on your computer, the App Store has several apps for that.

Previously bound to having a Hulu Plus subscription, Hulu this summer will be opening up their free streams to mobile users.

Looks like Hulu Plus will be coming to Apple TV competitor Roku. There's already a Hulu Plus app for Apple's iPad, and while my deepest, darkest wish is that it will support AirPlay to beam content straight to Apple TV, past history (and its use of non-standard video controls) make me think it won't. And hey, even if by some miracle it does, just like Apple TV has built-in Netflix support, built-in support for Hulu Plus would be huge (no need to waste iPad resources and Wi-Fi bandwidth).
