Hulu to start charging in 2010

by Adam Markovitz

Categories: News, Television, Web/Tech

At an industry summit in NYC on Oct. 21, News Corp Deputy Chairman Chase Carey revealed that online video hub Hulu will begin charging users for content as soon as 2010, according to Broadcasting and Cable. Carey told reporters that a subscription system is likely, although some content will probably continue to be offered free of charge. I think a free model is a very difficult way to capture the value of our content. I think what we need to do is deliver that content to consumers in a way where they will appreciate the value, he said.

Hulu is fucking insane. First they diss Canadians, and now they want to charge you guys? LoL. However, this could be a very profitable idea, depending on pricing strategy. Of course there are always other ways to watch this stuff online for free.

A big old WTH to "...in a way where they will appreciate the value." That's the oddest justification to charge something to watch television on-line. How is Hulu a status symbol?

F-U-HULU!
Just when I thought this service was the coolest, they pull this bullshit! They have so many stipulations with some shows..i.e. only short clips, waiting weeks for new content, only showing a % of shows in a new season, etc...and now this?
I just hope they dont charge to watch old series that were canceled....that would be beyond bullshit!
