65w ago - Hulu Principal Software Development Lead Daniel Bear has announced today that the latest Hulu Plus PS3 update includes new improved navigation and discovery as outlined below!
To quote: It's been two years since Hulu Plus first launched in living rooms across the U.S. via PlayStation 3 - but we haven't stopped there.
Since then, we've kept our promise to never stop innovating. Our team of passionate engineers in Hulu's Seattle office has been hard at work, taking your feedback to build the latest entertainment experience for your living room.
I'm excited to announce that the new and improved Hulu Plus experience rolls out today on PlayStation 3. Designed to help you get to the shows you watch faster than ever before, the new experience includes larger, more vivid artwork and is easier to navigate.
We've implemented a tray-style format that allows you to scroll through recommendations based on your viewing history, or check out popular shows and movies, the top 100 clips on Hulu Plus, movie trailers and more. We've also included a "Shows You Watch" feature that highlights the content you regularly enjoy, and lets you jump straight to the latest episode.

That is a link to the latest trial version, as the patched older version does not work so simply reinstall it later to use it again or just change the date on your PC if you wish to use it longer, etc.
To quote: "To enjoy PlayOn, you just need a PC, a home network, and a Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Moxi HD DVR, NETGEAR Digital Entertainer Live, Roku (just added!) or another supported device. That's it. No extra cables or hardware to buy
PlayOn also enables you to stream your personal videos, photos and music from your PC to your home entertainment center. It takes less than 3 minutes to set up – download it and see for yourself.
Because of the increased popularity of online gaming, the PS3 has built-in WiFi that allows you to directly log on to Hulu with the game system’s Web browser. (The PS3...
