Rumors have it that there are Apple TVs that can run Hulu Plus app inside Apple. The app is full-featured and can be rolled out to Apple TV users. Actually, the app has been completed at least month ago, but there are some political issues standing in the way of launching Hulu Plus for Apple TV. Apple appears to have some consideration that the Hulu Plus could decrease iTunes TV sales.

While Netflix run mainly older programming, iTunes is the only outlet of Apple TV for current TV programming. Hulu Plus is included in the iPad and iOS devices, but unlike other content applications, you can’t stream it via AirPlay to an Apple TV. In addition, using HDMI cable you can watch the Hulu Plus video through an iPad on the HDTV, however only in standard definition.

Recently Hulu tried to sell itself to companies including Apple and Google, but no bidders were ready to pay high enough. Originally Hulu Plus app was not available on any TV platforms, but recently in HD format on the Roku and on some smaller platforms like Western Digital’s TV Live.
