Screw you Hulu, I cancelled my cable service several years ago and have absolutely no intention WHATSOEVER of going back. If you're going to require me to have cable to use your site, I'll pirate stuff instead (as if they always forget about that option that consumers have when making these decisions).
Well no ####, that's the whole reason many people have gone this route. For roughly $9 a month, Netflix and Hulu pretty much fill the void left by overpriced cable/satellite TV. I want to watch what I want and preferably when I want, why would I want to support and pay for the other 3/4 of the programming that is absolutely useless?
To a certain extent, they already do this. If you want to watch FOX programming, you get this message: If you are a DISH Network or Verizon FiOS TV subscriber, you can connect to Hulu and watch new episodes of FOX shows the day after they air on TV. Otherwise, episodes will be available on Hulu.com 8 days after they air on TV.

Im ready for my desert roving, and razor sharp boomerang.[/citation]
There is good news:
Frontline - 29 seasons
American Experience - 24 seasons
Nature - 30 seasons
Nova - 38 seasons
All are available online at the PBS website.
So I need Hulu Plus for $10 to stream to a mobile device, and suffer ads, and I can't watch it from a BB PlayBook/HP Touchpad/GTV, etc.? Now I need a cable subscription?! Keep digging that hole deeper Hulu.
so ancient systems... lol seams 3rd world.
My provider already has a streaming service for many years. thousands of complete series and films. all for free. included in the subscription. and they are even available on pc tablets and smarthphones too. and for free too.
no need for hulu and all that crap.
Canceled netflix when they doubled the price. Paid for a hulu plus commercial until I realized I REFUSE TO PAY FOR COMMERCIALS. now's its amazon prime (because I use prime for work) and pirating. Sucks really, I liked buying movies on DVD before they screwed this whole system up. HD-DVD was a better/more open choice but don't worry 3 million customers just got pissed on, in the face. EZTV.IT use it and love it.
