To this point, we haven’t really seen any easy or economical methods for getting Hulu content (back) onto the television. Most solutions require a PC in the mix – either relaying the video (ZvBox, SlingCatcher, PlayOn software) or as a PC-at-the-TV (Neuros LINK, Boxee on AppleTV). So, it was quite refreshing to swing by SageTV‘s suite earlier this evening for a pre-release demo of Hulu playback direct from the compact SageTV HD Theater. (Which is available now for $200 and capable of quite a bit more.) Browsing and selecting television shows was simple and the 480p streaming video was extremely watchable. I’m sure Brent will be looking forward to getting his hands on the public beta next month.
