lol. F U Hulu. Just give me a damn app that I can view the FREE content that everyone else can view today. Want $5 for it? Fine, take it. But take your monthly fees for tv shows with advertisements and shove them.
WTF By-Tor, you have me on ignore or something? You know I'm a fan of your work!
Yes, I think that even your average consumer will be annoyed by such a transparent "double-dip" (both sub fees and ads) - it will be interesting to see how this all unfolds and what take rates will look like for Hulu.
The idea here is that Hulu Plus is viewable on all your devices with premium content to the free service (mainly, all current season eps plus more library). Hulu Plus' main competitor is really the NetFlix streaming service. The free Hulu will continue to serve the needs of people who want to catch up on-line for recently missed episodes of current season, with some library.
With that in mind, how do you see the Netflix and Hulu Plus stacking up against each other? I think it's close, and not all that duplicative - there will be a small population paying for both services...
