With Hulu+, you often get quicker access to episodes. For instance, with weekly primetime shows, Hulu+ gives you access to new eps a day after they air. You have to wait 7-8 days after air to get the same content on regular Hulu. I'm not sure how that'd work for a daily show, though. I think you can watch eps of Days on Hulu the day after they air for free.

There might be extra "goodies" on Hulu+ like bts videos or something with the new shows. IDK.

I believe You need Hulu+ to watch the programming on TV. Unless you hook up your computer to the TV. I havent used Hulu in a while so I cant entirely remember.

I'm sure. I would think so. I would think Canada and even internationally has to be on their minds.

Their own website might let you watch for free anywhere. I don't know though :shrug:

Definitely not for Canadians via Hulu. iTunes I can't see being anything other than a rental or purchase per episode type of deal. It'll depend if their own website will stream the episodes, though that they've involved Hulu would lead one to believe they've outsourced the "broadcasting" to their ready-built infrastructure.

Yeah, hopefully they work out some deal with Canadian watchers since we can't use Hulu unless you have an IP changer thing.

I'm sure they'll figure something out. I can't imagine them not. I believe last time they had said they would, but I can't remember where I read that.

I've known about Hulu for years (I subscribe to Daily Variety and recall seeing articles about it going back to 2007 and 2008) but I have never paid any attention to it nor had a desire to investigate (have pretty much been spoiled by my OnDemand and all it has to offer).

Will definitely be getting into Hulu now. Think I'll go like it on Facebook this evening.

I had a trial of Hulu+ for a while and hated it. If I'm going to pay for a service like that, I don't expect ads. I get ads using Hulu free.

I can watch Hulu(plus) on my Blu-Ray player. Works great. I do think with Hulu+ you shouldn't have to see ads during the shows, before and maybe a break in the middle could work. However, the commercials are usually 30 seconds, so it's not terrible.

Netflix is better in a lot of ways for the cost, I agree, but I don't think Hulu sucks. I guess it just depends on what a person is specifically looking for.

Could I use that $8 dollars for something else? Sure! But for my situation, I'm wanting to move away from satellite television and start using an over-the-air antenna (for local broadcasts), probably a TiVo again. And I can get Hulu and Netflix on my Blu-Ray player (check these out guys! They're somewhat cheaper now than they were a few years ago and some offer these apps ... I'd assume you would need an HD capable TV but I don't know for sure).

Or a Roku. I've wanted to get one for a while but because my Blu-Ray player has Netflix/Hulu, I don't see a need for it. If it had a cloud DVR .... I would. Like the Boxee is beta testing right now. Wal-Mart offers the Boxee which will have a cloud DVR I believe and you can hook up over-the-air antenna to it and then stream from Hulu/Netflix. I THINK. Again, not 100%.

Just some thoughts for everyone if they want to watch :D

Same here.

But I'm still disappointed with the slim pickings Hulu PLUS has to offer. Wanted to catch up with Friday Night Lights since I stopped after season two but nope, they only have the last season available for a short time.

If you like watching the current season of TV shows, it is good for that but I already have OnDemand on my cable package and it serves that purpose.

I'm definitely considering paying for AMC and OLTL. I think I'm going to see how it is in the beginning. If I like what I'm hearing about the show, I'll put my money down.
