Now available for download to ReQuest's pricey whole-home media servers is a Hulu front-end that promises to be more TV friendly than the website itself. Usable via a standard IR remote users can click through Hulu's content, fast forward and skip, or add shows to their queue, while video automatically goes full screen when it starts playing. YouTube support was already part of the deal, and a Netflix streaming app is on the way soon. Dollar for dollar wise it doesn't compare to PlayOn, SageTV, boxee or Windows Media Center plugins but if you've already shelled out $2,500+ for a media server and all the fixings, easy access without the DIY flair is a sweet addition.
