There we are. I'm looking into it. The future functionality for the PS3 seems enticing too.

I really wonder how complete they will make a series on Hulu.

are the shows available on plus not available to the public on hulu anymore, or is the upgrade mostly about hd and having hulu on your phone...?

I'm still trying to find the answer to that too. Hulu is being extremely vague with this detail ;)

Hulu plus is if you pay more you get more than regular Hulu which will still remain free. Too bad play on isnt on the iPhone. Play On is a bit better than Hulu.

It looks like all you get with plus is the ability to now watch hulu on mobile devices and TV connected devices. When the PS3 was blocked Hulu in a round about way admitted that NBC and FOX didn't want people watching Hulu on their TVs with the PS3. They basically were worried that the cable companies would learn about this and wouldn't pay as much. Of course this logic is dumb and out of date, with an increasing number of TVs having PC input connections and HDMI output is about standard on PCs you can easily connect a PC to a TV. Someone forgot to tell the people in the top office that a TV is nothing more then a computer monitor with a built in TV tuner.

Aww, c'mon now. You know that's far too advanced a concept for a highly paid network executive to grasp. Be more realistic. :)

okay, thanks. that makes a LOT more sense.
it seems like it'd defeat the entire purpose if you had to pay to watch
shows on network tv, since anyone can just watch those for free without cable, anyway.

I'm glad I don't have need for hulu with a pay model...or have any modern video game system.

I pay for my internet...outside of like MMO costs I doubt I'll ever pay for anything online (rifftrax not included.)

Honestly this is worth considering for anyone with a cable bill. I mean most channels seem to be supporting it plus with PS3 support, its easy to get right on your TV. I don't know, I'm at least thinking about ditching the cable...Just getting a box or something for CBS (who doesn't support it I believe) so I can still watch my footballs.

I've heard of people watching games here.

I know a lot of people (even sports fanatics) who have ditched cable and just replaced it with web stuff. I've been cable free since Feb. I haven't looked back :)

I had both Netflix and Hulu before I cut my cable and bought the NHL and MLB internet streams after. With the amount I saved off my cable bill I bought a $130 netbox with HDMI out and Wifi and Connected that to my TV. It works great for streaming Hulu, Crunchyroll, MLB.tv, NHL, streaming from my media hub, it also works great as a NES/SNES.

There are tons of alternatives to cable tv. Like I said in the previous post. I have PlayOn for my PS3. Its pretty nice to have all my favorite TV shows on my game console thought my big screen TV, without giving power to the cable industry. My mom's cable bill went up to $125. There are other places where I can watch tv on my internet for free, but I cant say for obvious reasons.

I was able to get PlayOn for $20 before their promo deal ended and the fee went up to $40. But if you think about it, thats still a good bargain because its $40 for the first year and then $19 for the next year. This is way better than a $130 a month cable bill.

Here's a nice article that shows were not alone when it comes to living a cable TV free lifestyle. Everyone is doing it. It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor.

As long as there's a Hulu thread going, could someone please explain to me what that Heat Map thing is supposed to be for?
