So, I finally fanangled a Hulu.com invite.
For those of you who don’t know, Hulu.com is an online video venture, powered mostly by NBC and News Corp. The site streams TV shows (legally) to your computer.
It’s nice to see the variety of old and new shows. The videos load quickly and there is only a short commercial (only seconds long) at the beginning of each show.
Of course the smaller the player window the better the video quality. I can only watch the videos in a small window on my laptop (yet on ABC.com I can watch full screen without any problems) .
You can add shows to your playlist, subscribe to shows and be notified of new episodes. You can embed parts of episodes into sites (see below) No way to download them to portable devices though, which is a shame.
