    Any word on when/if ATV2 will get Hulu? The biggest issue I see with ATV2 right now is lack of content. Having Hulu would be a big step forward.

    I don't see that happening... Apple is trying to rent TV shows... Hulu is giving them away... what's the upside for ATV? At least with things like NETFLIX, MLB.TV AND NBA , there are revenue streams that Apple can take a cut of...

    Does Apple get revenue from Netflix? If so, couldn't they get revenue from Hulu as well? I pay a fee to both Netflix and Hulu each month. Seems like if Apple is getting rev from Netflix, should be able to get it from Hulu.

    I haven't seen the books, but I can't imagine that Jobs & Co would not shake them down for something - they're getting 30% for in-app purchases... but I also thought Hulu was shying away from anything "big screen" and concentrating on computers, mobile devices, etc...

    I could be wrong... it's happened before...

    In order to have access to Hulu content on iPhones/Ipads currently you need to subscribe to Hulu+ which is a monthly subscription service like NetFlix. Apple should be able to get a cut of the Hulu monthly subscription price just like they probably do with NetFlix for having Hulu on ATV2. I don't think that is the issue. I could be wrong...

    Hulu is on the Roku box, almost the same thing as the ATV

    In another thread this was posted. I did test it and it works:
    I lucked upon a way to play Hulu Plus from my iPad to my Apple TV. I can launch Flixster, start watching a trailer, hit the Home button, launch Hulu Plus and pick a show to watch and it plays on my Apple TV. This didn't work trying my Videos app first. So far it only works by launching Flixster, watching a trailer, then going to Hulu Plus. Seems to stay connected until I completely close Flixster or Hulu Plus.
