I have been in their beta program for the past 2 months and enjoy the service, especially when I travel. The video quality is fantastic (thank in part to Flash 9 and H.264 of course!). The service is free so the programs have commercials, but they are all brief so they don’t get too irritating. The resolution is great and even includes some HD content at 1280×720.

By the way, Hulu has recently signed deals with the NBA and NHL 🙂

So, quit working and go watch Family Guy at http://www.hulu.com !

  1. I took your advice– and wasted a couple of hours watching this stuff. The commercials aren’t too bad, because they’re so quick. Not nearly as bad as regular tv, anyway. Thanks!

  2. heh, nice stuff, best regards

  3. Hulu is pretty cool however the commercials are mildly irritating.

  4. I wish people would get over the idea that advertisements and commercials are inherently a bad thing. Companies paying for those ads are the only reason the programs are able to be made.

    Would you rather be ‘mildly irritated’ or pay $1.99 a show?
