Hulu Plus reportedly being tested on TiVo Premiere boxes

It has been a whirlwind couple of months for the strange and supposedly non-existant relationship between Hulu Plus and TiVo. Are they back on again?

It has been a whirlwind couple of months for the strange and supposedly non-existant relationship between Hulu Plus and TiVo. Are they back on again?

Answer: maybe. Back in September, it was announced that Hulu Plus would be headed for TiVo Premiere boxes. In December, those plans were halted due to disputes with some cable companies.

Maybe the feuds have been settled or TiVo refuses to give up, or both. According to a tipster reporting to Engadget, TiVo is conducting a field trial to test Hulu Plus on TiVo sets and sending select subscribers codes for a free month of Hulu Plus service on top of it.

There are some other tidbits too about surveys and the possibility of being able to stream On Demand content on an iPad, but it would be really nice just to see this Hulu Plus/TiVo matter resolved already.
