Hulu Plus on Google TV

Do you own a Google TV and wish you could watch Hulu Plus? Well today I am going to show you how! I have only tested it on my GTV but please let me know if it worked for you as well. The very first thing you want to do is go to All Apps>Settings>Application and check Unknown sources. Go back to Home and open up Chrome browser. Go to: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html and scroll down till you get to Flash Player for Android 4.0 archives; download the latest as shown below.

Once downloaded, go back to Home. Notice you have a message notification now. Click on the file just download and accept the install. That should cover the Flash Player install which you need before installing Hulu Plus. Now you will need your computer for this part of the tutorial. On your computer , go to http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1822341

Download Hulu Plus 2.11 201475.zip , that seem to work pretty well. I tried some other ones before that one and the menu displayed sideways. Unzip the file and you will end up with a .apk file. I uploaded the .apk file to my google drive from my computer. Then on my GTV , downloaded the .apk file will signed in my account in the Chrome browser. Click on message notification in Home menu, accept and install HuluPlus.apk file. That is how I did it! That is the only way I could come up with to get the install. I tried installing from a USB but could not read or execute from it. Enjoy!

    What Google TV device, running what version of Google, did this work on? On my Sony NSZ-GS7 running Google TV based on Android 3.2, this completely did not work:
    – The Flash player acted like it installed, but videos at Hulu.com would not play in either Chrome or Lightning browsers.
    – The Hulu+ apk did not install.

      This worked on my LG GA6400 series Android 4.2.2.
