Answering, in its own way, to the likes of Boxee and others who want some alternative way to view Hulu on their computers, Hulu has announced the availability of Hulu Desktop. Sporting a super-clean UI and support for using the Apple Remote, this free download is a must-have for anybody who frequents Hulu often.
The app is built on the Flash platform, so the system requirements are pretty moderate, requiring at least an Intel Core Duo 2.GHz Mac with 2.0GB of RAM. Currently available as a beta, this application provides you quick and easy access to your Hulu queue, as well as the ability to browse Hulu’s entire lineup of TV shows and movies.
The UI of the application is fairly snappy and easy to navigate, putting tons of content, your queue, suggestions and search at your fingertips. The experience is very refined for an application that’s still in beta.
Hulu Desktop is a free download from Hulu Labs.
