If you have a laptop or computer near your TV, hate paying for cable, and have a way to hook up your computer to the TV – it is time you check out Hulu Desktop. I downloaded Hulu Desktop, hooked up my MacBook Pro to my TV (DVI to HDMI), and within a few minutes was watching episode 2 of 24 – and was able to use the remote that came with my computer to boot!
You can use Hulu Desktop to view TV shows, movies, trailers, etc and you can even use your Hulu account to queue up shows/movies so when you use Hulu Desktop – you do not need to search for something to watch. Simply login while you are using your computer, mark a show/movie as something you want to add to your queue and you are set.
This week flew by – but I actually found a number of links very interesting over the last seven days.
- Chicagoland fishing information and reports
- How to ditch cable but still have quality TV programming options (thanks @htoddcarter)
- TV.com – TiVO again and again proves it is the coolest thing around. You can find shows available on TV.com and send them to your TiVo.
- ESPN 360 – Oh my – I am so close to canceling my $100+ a month cable. This becomes available for Comcast high speed internet subscribers on August 1. If it proves to work well for two weeks worth of programming – look out!
