Lack of Hulu on Google TV Got You Down? Try Fancast by Xfinity


While Hulu may have blocked access to their content on Google TV, all hope is not lost. It looks like you can access Comcast/Xfinity’s Fancast website by changing the user agent on your Google TV unit to “Generic.” From there, going to Fancast.com will bring you a nice collection of shows from the likes of ABC, Fox, and NBC. (Don’t expect any HBO or Showtime, folks.)


The irony in all of this? The shows are stamped with the Hulu logo. And I think the publicizing of this workaround may have just spelled doom for it in the near future. Oh well, go take advantage of it now before the big, bad, scary content providers send angry letters off to Google.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
