As the site’s popularity skyrocketed, however, users have been clamoring for a way to get it out of the browser and into the living room – Boxee was the perfect solution to this but Hulu was persistent in blocking the software at the request of the content providers. In an interesting turn of events, they are now releasing their own standalone application, promising a “lean-back viewing experience” delivered straight to your computer. Hulu Desktop is available on Windows and Mac – but not on Linux – and can be controlled not just via a mouse and keyboard, but also through any Apple or Windows Media Center remote.
Additionally the company has launched a new Labs section today, where you’ll find stuff like a video panel designer to create embeddable widgets for Hulu, as well as new recommendations and time-based browsing tools.
