We rarely speak about computer software here, so excuse us for a moment. MediaMall Technologies recently released PlayOn
, a piece of software that allows you to stream Hulu video to your TV via a Playstation 3 or XBOX 360. Hulu is currently a view-on-computer-only affair, so this enables you to watch it comfy on your couch. The computer and gaming systems must be connected to the same network, and you need to follow a few steps to get it working, but the BETA worked well and it allows us to get more entertainment out of our expensive gaming systems. You can also stream YouTube videos with the software and the company has plans to stream Netflix movies as well. For those who felt left in the cold when Netflix announced XBOX 360 exclusivity, this might come as a welcomed announcement.

beta software can be had at the MediaMall Technologies web site
