Hello,
Does anyone know if there is a way to get the native HuluPlus channel on a jailbroken ATV 2? I am not talking about the XBMC Add-on, I already use that. I am just trying to avoid updating and re-jailbreaking. I'm on 4.4.4 software. Thanks in advance.

Yes, it automatically showed up on my jailbroken ATV2. I haven't tried it yet, but the symbol is there.

try doing a hard restart, (unplug for a bit and plug back in)

i Think most of the menu is actually retrieved from apple, with no connection to the net, you get computers and settings.

Where in what menu or screen did you find the symbol unless you have a jb 5xx av2. Mine is 444 and no symbol but its not worth uodating and rejailbreaking since it requires a subscription.

That's exactly what I meant. 3 isn't jailbroken, so mine is obviously jailed.

The OP was asking about whether he needed to update, so I said my stock ATV3 wouldn't get Hulu until I updated.

Does the hulu plus app show the same content as the jailbroken xmbc hulu app? I was under the impression that native Hulu Plus apps like on Roku and iPad only shows some of the content, while the xmbc app mimicked the web browser version of Hulu plus.
