It's probably more along the lines that Hulu isn't interested in rushing out an HTML5 app that will cost X to develop while their current client works perfectly well for the majority of their customers.

Rather than retooling their website it is more logical to do what they are actually doing and code a standalone app that will probably get rejected from the app store.

A youtube comment points out there are people in both the driver and passenger seats. The person in the driver seat looks to be spinning the wheel, and then ducks down as the car comes to a stop. There is a response from the uploader claiming the driver is there for "safety reasons" -- pretty dubious in my opinion. What is safe about a driver and passenger inside an autonomous car? Don't they have remote kill switches for that?
