Isnt it on the Wii/360/PS3 or am I thinking of something else?
Out of rage I cancelled my Dish "service"... Long story kinda short... We would have had to pay thousands to get our giant locust tree "topped" in order to keep service. Also, they charged us $300 for a DVR because it had dust in it. Plus they stopped serving AMC >>> No Walking Dead or Breaking Bad.
Anyway we got a Roku which is pretty awesome. We tried Playon which is also awesome but we dont have a free dedicated PC to encode & serve. Its just not something we want...
The problem is my GF wants Hulu (-) just the regular online Hulu.
The only solution I can come up with is a PC media center which I dont want to do...
Does anyone know how to get regular Hulu on any device?
I've no experience with Hulu 'n what not, but the Wii U does have Hulu. ... If you'd care to invest that media center cash into one, that's a not-as-poor possibility perhaps.
Mod edit: DOUBLE POSTINGGGGGGGGGG?!?!?!
OK Im referring to regular hulu not hulu+
If we wanted hulu+ we would just buy hulu+... But hulu+ has a lot less content...
Hulu has a problem with non PC devices like tablets, phones, Roku etc accessing hulu(-) which is understandable. First they wouldn't make any subscription monies and the whole idea of hulu+ would be a fail.

I do not recall the events of the date in question...Mod edit: DOUBLE POSTINGGGGGGGGGG?!?!?!
Yeah it's f-ing confusing... But this is probably the future of TV so F satellite and cable. They do a good job of suppressing the concept but for us younger people cable & satellite are gonna eventually go the way of the land line and phone book. If were already paying for a decent internet connection **** that ugly Dish and **** paying $80 a month to watch 5 or 6 channels.And now im confused.
This is why I try not to use web players
So heres some possible solutions...
Android mk802 <<< Perfect excuse to finally get one) Find a minimal linux distro with XBMC and try the Hulu desktop = micro htmc with lots of good freeeee content. We do have Amazon Prime and HBOGO so this combined with all the free content on Roku is way more than enough entertainment then we could ever watch in a lifetime.
Or get a Roku XS and try to boot linux from flash or external HD. Or maybe emulate Roku... Do not know if possible...
Or use scrap laptop parts and build a micro axt machine. Goes against my plan to not have a dedicated PC but Im ok with a really small one.

Its gonna be a real POS but what can you really expect from a PC the size of a thumb drive? $50 and free shipping on Amazon... I can't complain and if it doesnt work out it will still be fun to play around with.
1ghz CPU, 500 mhz GPU, 1GB DDR3 Ram, wifi, HDMI, USB2... Even comes with a HDMI cable.
Maybe pair with this
Good for steaming and that, probs wont run games made in the past 10 years, might run 1080p video, id get the keyboard
Definitely leaning toward the keyboard. Tho I would like a traditional remote as long as I can get a good UI going.
Found a nice used Dell PowerEdge workstation/server with 2x quad core 2.8ghz. Would make a sweet all in one machine but GD >>> Do Not Want...
