Downloading the Hulu Plus App
You must have a Premiere running software version 14.8 or higher. You can verify your software version by going to TiVo Central and then Messages and Settings > Account & System Information > System Information. If you are not currently running software version 14.8 or higher, please see TiVo software version information to receive the new software.
TiVo Premiere boxes will automatically download the necessary software for this feature within 10 days of feature launch. Please note that you may not see the Hulu Plus application appear on your TiVo Premiere until a day or two after updating to software version 14.8. To manually initiate a connection to the TiVo service, go to TiVo Central and select Messages & Settings > Settings > Network & Phone > Connect to the TiVo service now.
