can you watch Hulu (not +) on Roku?

Seems like I could watch a few recent episodes on hulu.com on computer, for free (with ads) without paying for Hulu+. But when I tried on Roku, it seemed that I could only watch if I signed up for Hulu+.

I would really like to watch some recent shows on Hulu/Roku. My DVR dies, and I would like to not use the computer if possible.

Thanks

AFAIK, there is currently no free way (or Mac-friendly way) to accomplish this. "Regular" Hulu (along with ESPN, Nickelodeon, TBS, and several other channels/providers) can be accessed through the private PlayOn channel, but it requires a PlayOn subscription and a Windows PC.

Hulu+ on the Roku is well worth the $8/month to us.

Hulu doesn't want you viewing the regular Hulu on a tv. They keep blocking the systems that had a way to do it, such as Boxee and GoogleTV. Of course, using a regular HTPC or Mac mini works.
