AT&T and Hulu have signed a deal that will bring the Hulu subscription streaming service to AT&T customers through AT&T’s websites and mobile applications. AT&T customers will be able to browse Hulu programs and select the shows they want to watch through an AT&T app for mobile device viewing or an AT&T website for Internet viewing. This offering will become available to AT&T customers later this year.
Rival Verizon Communications said on Tuesday it would buy AOL to access its mobile video advertising technology.
AT&T is also considering bringing a Hulu app to TV, AT&T said on Wednesday.
Verizon had earlier bought Intel's OnCue service last year for an undisclosed sum to accelerate its push into next-generation video services.
