Hillcrest Labs has launched the Kylo browser – a new Web browser for TV. Kylo lets users visit any site on the Web with a browser specifically designed for viewing from a distance, such as in the living room.??

The Kylo browser is intended for use on a TV connected to a computer. Kylo is not a "walled garden" of aggregated video content, but rather a true Web browser that lets users go where they want across the Internet.??

In addition, Hillcrest Labs developed an online guide here to help people connect their computers to their TV.

Although the Kylo Web browser for TV is supposed to offer the ability to visit any site on the Web, Hillcrest Labs’ CEO, Dan Simpkins, released a statement this morning, saying, "We are currently investigating why Hulu videos are not playing within the Kylo browser. Prior to our formal launch, Hulu videos would play within the Kylo browser. Like Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari, the Kylo browser is simply a Web browser. It’s our sincere hope that Hulu isn’t restricting access."
