I truly love Hulu. For those who don’t know, Hulu was a venture by NBC and FOX to bring their television shows onto a streaming site where they control the advertising. The interface was created by Avenue A | Razorfish and it’s clean and easy to use. Every episode from NBC and Fox isn’t on Hulu but they have a nice selection of shows and the content is updated within a couple days of the show’s airing. The service just works REALLY well. I watch the shows that I want, when I want. There are a few ads during the shows at the time when commercial would show up, but they’re short and unobtrusive.
Techcrunch just reported that Hulu has broken into the Top 10 video sites online knocking Google Video off the list.
Hulu users are streaming over 63 million videos and, on average, are watching over two hours of video per month each.
Wow! So I guess I’m not alone in loving Hulu. Why can’t TV studios understand? We’re happy to watch ads if you give us the content we want when we want it. You can’t beat piracy. People will always try to circumvent the established system. But if you can give us what we want, most of us won’t use Bittorrent ever again…maybe.
