LOL … Well thanks for your “speculation”, I appreciated it anyway haha …
Well, don’t underestimate the licensing issue’s. Popbox hardware for example, COULD support Hulu as well, but uptill now, Hulu refuses to license the Popbox:
"Can I watch Hulu on popbox?
Popbox respects the rights of content distributors and owners to decide how and where to distribute their content. Unfortunately, there is no Hulu app at this time, but if you want to see Hulu’s programming on popbox, we encourage you to contact Hulu directly with your request. http://www.hulu.com/support/contact. The same is true for any Internet service that you enjoy today on the web"
So, even though the *plus* has the hardware to decode Hulu, it’s really the question if Hulu would license WD. My best guess is (and THIS is speculation) that Hulu is looking at mediaplayers right now and will choose to license any player based on a chipset that they consider as secure, in the near future (which in general will mean any player that has an even number Sigma chipset, (like the WDTV Live plus).
