TiVo Premiere and "standard" Hulu

Does anyone know if you can watch "standard" Hulu (not Hulu plus) on a TiVo Premiere without a Hulu Plus subscription?

Thanks in advance.

"Standard" Hulu can't be watched (easily) on ANY device other than a PC.

Hulu Plus provides an app for many devices including Tivo.

Well actually yes many of us know the answer to if you can watch Hulu (not the Plus version) on a TiVo Premiere.

However the answer isn't just a simple yes or no.

Hulu (not Hulu+) is not natively supported on TiVo however there is a way to watch it on a TiVo using a computer, Playon, & pytivo. You use Playon & pytivo installed on computer to stream Hulu from the computer to your TiVo. See this thread for where to find detailed info:

Ok, I was caught.

Initially, I was going to be snarky, then reconsidered and edited poorly.

Yes. It is well known that this is NOT possible with Tivo apps.

Try searching, this is a topic that has a multitude of thread discussions. What incentive would Hulu have to provide a pay service for use on a Tivo and then undercut themselves with their free service?
