Hulu Desktop is a lean-back viewing experience for your personal computer. It features a sleek new look that's optimized for use with standard Windows Media Center remote controls or Apple remote controls, allowing you to navigate Hulu's entire library with just six buttons. For users without remotes, the application is keyboard and mouse-enabled. Hulu Desktop is a downloadable application and will work on PCs and Macs. It will initially launch as a beta product during which we plan to gather and incorporate user feedback to improve the service.

still blows more than ever! now you can only watch 90 second previews of most old and recent shows,or be forced to pay a monthly fee with hulu plus to watch the entire episode! gay. oh and crashed on first launch after uup[date! that was really worth the 9 months waiting for a beta update,going back to eztv.

One of the fun things about Hulu Desktop is you can't watch all of the videos that are on hulu.com. For example, Hulu Desktop will not show Action! but your web browser will. Way cool.

This version FINALLY adds a Universal Binary Internet Plugin! Now all we need is a PowerPC-optimized version of Flash so Hulu works decently on older G4s, and a 64-bit version for 10.6!

Why can't HULU, which when run will recognize that there is/has been an update, cannot successfully self-install it? Always it finds an error, so it cannot update itself. The only way I've found is to delete the old version and download the new. Not good.

I'm sure downloading a 2.2MB file is a monstrous annoyance.

From developer link page;

"Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6): Apple Remote control functionality is only compatible with OS X 10.6.2 or later."

Being that the mass of the contents of the plug-in is a 12kb Unix Executable I doubt it'll bog down your monster Intel system.

New update, same problem: once again, a la my earlier post, this won't work if you're not in the US so don't bother dowloading it.

If you're in the UK, give Zattoo a try. It gets most channels that Frreview offers and works very well.

Or have you found something better?
