Hulu has spent the past few months in a cat and mouse game with Boxee and Plex, trying to block them from showing their content..  The Mac media centers keep finding a way around Hulu’s defenses to show Hulu content.  Then Hulu blocks them again.  etc etc.

We never understood why Hulu was so against these 3rd parties showing their content (and their commercials).  Now it all comes to light.

Hulu just put out their own desktop app.  It works with the Apple remote (and others) and only on Intel Macs over 2.0GHz with a 2Mb Internet connection.  Warning, there are some bugs and it isn’t as easy to close as it should be.  Download here.

Also, what will this mean for Apple TV?
