  1. Google TV devices won't work with Hulu out of the box because Google has set a browser ID that the service can easily block. Thankfully, Google TV allows you to customize the User Agent string, an identification method web browsers use so the servers they talk to can treat them differently if Web developers so choose, for your TV's browser. In this case, that means blocking access to content if Google TV is the one requesting Hulu's content. Google is still working on an agreement for Hulu Plus access, but if you're not willing to wait, there's a workaround available.

    Sorry, couldn't help it. But If I'm actually going to shell out the cash required to get Google TV, believe me, the last thing in my priority list will be to use the shitty Hulu.

    Not your fault Techspot, not your fault.
