Why won't Hulu show up as a watch option on the iPhone app?

On the iPhone app I look up shows that I know have Hulu as a watch option on the regular website. Why aren't they showing up on the app then? I only see the 'download on itunes' option.

Hi Oli,
Due to the flash limitations of mobile devices, you can't actually watch shows on your iPad/iPhone, including Hulu. You can, however, download from iTunes, which is why we include that option for users interesting in purchasing episodes from the iTunes store.

Even if you can't watch it on the iPhone, it'd be nice to know it's available on regular Hulu.

Hi there,
Thanks for the suggestion, but the iPhone app only lists external viewing links that can be viewed using your mobile device.

You can always go to the mobile site on sidereel.com, which shows all the featured links we have available for an episode, regardless of the platform you are on.
