Hey,

I just tried to make Hulu work on my Nexus Q and I had a wonderful success! :)

So, if you want it running in your browser, just follow this:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1427095

I unzipped the file and copied the content to the /data/flash directory. Be sure to read all the thread cause there is 2 ways to do it, I decided to not flash, since it's just to files to copy. In the end there is also a video to show how to do.

I'm using Firefox with the Phony pluggin to emulate a Desktop Browser, in that case Hulu allow me to watch the video, if you don't change your User Agent it will offer you the Hulu Plus, and all the reason for that is to not have to subscribe...

Have fun!

Cool! Fantastic to know, because I tried the Hulu app downloaded directly from the Play Store onto my Q (not sideloaded) and it didn't work (it crashed on startup screen).

By which I mean, I sideloaded google play, spoofed google play into thinking I was a tablet using the method here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1784644, and then downloaded Hulu, and it crashes. In my experience, 90%+ of the apps you'd expect to work DO work on the Q (excepting of course the apps that use GPS, gyro, microphone, or some other hardware that obviously doesn't work on Q). However Hulu fails, so this is great info as it provides a way to get it working.
