OMGHi2U Hulu.com - better takes in marketing? or flash in the pan?

Hulu is an online web service for TV shows, its like a DVR for the internet.

really its a better way of watching TV for me. I plug my PC into my TV, and boom, all the TV shows I want...streaming at my fingertips.

but here is the point of the post
Hulu has me wanting to watch movies. these short 30 seconds commercials are really attention grabbing. I usually fast forward through the junk on network TV, but the hulu ones are only 15-30 seconds, and I can recall almost every one of them.

I wonder if the marketing really works?
It is a great website
Shows I current subscribe too:
Sons of anarchy
Fringe
It's always sunny in Philadelphia
Life
Chuck
Burn notice
Knight Rider
Family guy
Diners, drive ins and dives
Heroes
My DVR was full, so I started using www.Hulu.com for shows

I just recently started using this. If an episode is on there, I don't have to torrent it.
Take notice networks, this is the future.

There is a lot of networks, I get FX, I get food network, and a few others. It is really cool to be honest. some network(like G4) only run clips of the shows and not the whole show. but sooner or later

I'm counting the days until "cable tv" or dish or whatever is a thing of the past. This is my real theory as to why comcast recently rolled out there official 250gig cap.

They know their tv side of their business is going belly up. But people will be using massive amounts of bandwidth to watch shows and movies and they will start setting limits and making money for overages.

If you think about it, if you had the choice of getting every cable channel for one steep price, or just buying the channel or even shows you wanted when you wanted them you'd likely go that route.

I don't watch 75% of the channels I have and of the 25% many of the channels I just watch one show.

Networks can cut out the middle man and sell directly to the consumer via the web. And you don't need a PC or Mac, you can pretty much do it with any home gaming system like a 360, ps3 or wii.

Technology and accessibility are not running at the same rate so while this could go into practice inside of the next 2 years it will take much longer for consumers to catch up to the concept. But Its probably less than 5 years away.

250Gb/mo is a LOT of streaming video, though. Unless we're talking 1080p.
Does anyone know how long it takes an episode to show up on hulu after it airs?

Hulu seems to be a day behind fox's own website for their shows.

And 250 gigs is a lot right this second. But shows are already being streamed in HD and pretty much all of them will be in 1 year. Those 250 gigs will go bye bye really quick, then no more porn until next month.

I remember when I thought our new 500 meg external hard drive was the **** and it would be impossible to fill.


Media will only keep going up and up and up. we will laugh at that 250 gig max in the next couple years as we download 15 tebibyte holodef movies

me too. i'm still trying to decide whether or not it's worth it to have it on my ipad and to have full seasons. with netflix's announcement, i'm not so sure it is.

Yeah, the netflix move is big news. I got to demo Hulu PPV a few months back for a project I was working on. Looked great and works well. I think they need to hammer our some agreements still. Yes more then 5 episodes but still only 1 season at a time. I'll blow thru that in a night or two then I'll be paying for what?

I'd be okay with paying the $10 fee and dealing with ads if they had a wider selection of shows. I guarantee there'll be some show I want to watch but it won't be available on Hulu because it's offered only on another network, like Discovery or some such bull****.

Nothing worse than getting comfy and ready to watch a show and then realizing you don't have access to it. And you're paying for it.

Yeah, hulu's "preview" is just their clever renaming of a soft opening.

Where as most companies will give free previews to a handful of people who have to suffer through the growing pains of starting something up, hulu wants to charge you to help debug their system.
