I already have Netflix, what else does Hulu + provide, that I can't find on Netflix.
I have Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime and Netflix, and I rarely use any of them. (Well, I do use Netflix for DVDs.)
Hulu Plus has the Criterion Collection which is worth the 8 bucks alone.
Netflix has a lot of the Criterion films on DVD. Not all of them, though.
TCM shows Criterion titles pretty frequently.
Starting April 29, Hulu will air All My Children and One Life to Live.
The thing I like about Hulu is they air a number of current TV shows. Not having to buy a DVR to record stuff is worth the 8 bucks to me.
I love Hulu
Who's going to have the new, 'Arrested Development', when it finally airs?
I find Netflix UNuserfirendly. Their search feature is weird. Is Hulu any better?
And it has The Straits, which is The Sopranos set in tropical Queensland.
the only benefit is getting Fox shows the day after they air, rather than a week after they air, and ain't worth it.
I use it and think it is well worth 7.99 which isn't a lot to ask for a month. I think it is great to support these streaming TV platforms to show there is a demand for it.
R7, that's Netflix, which is the reason why I got a membership.
Thanks, r12. That seals it, for me.
Which one has Breaking Bad season 5 (so far)?
Does it have American Idol?
If you watch Fox stuff, are you helping Fox News? I'd rather give up everything on television than help those bastards.
What about 20th Century Fox movies, R16?
Netflix has "House of Cards," too (exclusively), and that's a big plus.
On Apple TV and PS3 you can do a trial. I did and found it wasn't worth the $8 a month. There's a lot more content on Netflix.
If I wasn't hurting financially, I'd probably subscribe to it, though...
I quit Hulu Plus when they started putting massive amounts of commercials in their shows. Not only too many commercials in quantity - but when the show feed drops out to load the commercials - often times the show feed never comes back. You have to freaking load the show again, navigate to the place you left off - and then watch that set of commercials AGAIN, hoping it will pick up the streaming of the show again. It fucking SUCKS. Called to cancel, they said "OK" and hung up on me. Didn't even ask why, kiss my ass, NOTHING. Obviously they don't need my business.
I would think that Hulu+ would be commercial free. It's not? So what is the difference between Hulu and Hulu+ then?
I think that Hulu only plays on a pc-type device, while Hulu+ can play on streaming devices like Roku. I don't think there is any difference otherwise.
Does Hulu Plus have commercials during their movies?
They did during that promotion when they were streaming Criterion movies for free recently . . . but I would hope that's not the case if you have a paid subscription.
Hulu censors male frontal nudity in the movies they have. "Longhorns" has a few frontal shots on the Netflix version, yet they are covered over on Hulu. I saw the same "box" covering the goods on an actor in another gay-themed movie on Hulu.
R25, that's outrageous. We need to strip naked and hold up picket signs in front of their offices.
Despite paying $8 a month for Hulu, you still have to sit through commercials. There's no advantage to Hulu when there are plenty of sites on the 'net to watch current shows for free.
Does it have up the upto date episodes of How I met your mother, The Vampire Diaries and Pretty little liars? How often do they update it?
