    Hulu Plus won't work on GTV devices running the Honeycomb OS. (The Cube runs Honeycomb). I believe it might be possible to sideload Hulu Plus on GTV devices running Jellybean - but I'm not sure if that will work well.

    I don't think it is possible to install a Hulu Plus app on the Asus Cube either. Since it is rooted have you tried accessing Hulu with the browser? I think you will have to change the user agent but if you can get access to the free Hulu with the browser, I would think Hulu Plus will also be accessible by browser. There are a number of claims online that Hulu works with a rooted Google TV using the Chrome browser but I don't know the recommended user agent, although a YouTube how to video should explain everything if you find one.

    I have contacted Asus support, and they are telling me that it (hulu plus) is available in the app store. When I search in google play, nothing comes up. I am assuming that there is no app available anymore, but Asus support keeps telling me that it does work and its available.

    Hulu intentionally blocks access to the + app on GTV devices. I could never figure out the reason for this. Every attempt to sideload Hulu + has led to a message that Hulu + doesn't work on GTV devices. I was able to side-load the free version app of Hulu (there's an in-app option to update to +, but I never bothered)
    Dropbox - Hulu 2.17.2.202135.apk
    This is from my Jellybean GTV, not sure if it'll work on your cube.

    Since your rooted, can you gain access to your units User Agent String and change it from GTV to another device that'll allow access to Hulu +?

    That is what I have read, a rooted Google TV can be used to access Hulu and Hulu Plus with the browser. There is no way to get the Google Play Hulu Plus app to run on the Asus Google TV, it is incompatible, rooted or not. It would certainly be possible for Hulu to have developed an app to work but it never happened and at this late date, I think it is clear it never will happen.

    Although I have a rooted Google TV, I haven't tried to access Hulu directly with the browser, I use PlayLater to record Hulu and delete commercials but I do play the recordings using Google TV.

    I think the Asus Nexus Player can run the Hulu Plus app, I don't have one to check. I know for a fact the Asus Cube can not run the Hulu Plus app unless it has recently been adapted for Google TV, since the last time I tried, and I consider the chances that has happened so close to zero that I am not going to try now.

    I suspect the Customer Service answer is confusing Nexus Player and Cube but there is no benefit to continue to inquire in my opinion.
