<QUOTE FROM HULU WEBSITE>
“Hulu offers U.S. consumers a vast selection of premium video content, on demand, free and ad-supported: full episodes of TV shows, both current and classic, full-length movies, thousands of clips, and much more.”
Hulu offers full episodes and clips from current primetime shows –for example, Family Guy, 30 Rock, The Office, House, The Simpsons, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Friday Night Lights – as well as a massive selection of TV classics, from Arrested Development and Firefly to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Miami Vice, Roswell and many more. Our movie library will include full-length movies from The Usual Suspects, Ice Age, and Point Break to Some Like It Hot, In Her Shoes, and Me, Myself and Irene, as well as hundred of clips from classic movies such as Aliens, Die Hard, Little Miss Sunshine, Napoleon Dynamite, and Vertigo.
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 !
