As Netflix bears down, Hulu Plus cuts price

I tried Hulu plus and compared to Netflix it is total crap. It's nice that it has entire back catalogs of shows all episodes, and it's nice that they have episodes the day after they air on TV but other than that it is all bad news.

The streaming quality doesn't compare to Netflix. The worst part about Hulu Plus is that you pay $10 a month for limited content, Hulu.com on the PC has MUCH more shows and variety that you don't get when you PAY for plus..

I wouldn't call Hulu Plus crap. It has a great interface, it's HD runs smooth, the feature setup is wonderful. But the fact it doesn't have 1/20th the content of hulu.com is disgraceful. You are paying for convenience.

If Hulu Plus was the same as hulu.com it would kill the Cable companies

Remember when Hulu was available FOR FREE ON THE PS3 BROWSER? Now they want to charge $10 for less content WITH ADS. Really?

Losing Viacom is a huge loss to Hulu and it makes me wounder is Hulu is even willing to take the risks necessary to compete with netflix.

Ya I use netflix for streaming only and vudu for movies.

Tired of waiting for my movies in the mail.

somerandomdude2569d ago

Vudu would be cool if they had a movie for one dollar for one night. What is up with having to pay 2 dollars for 2 nights? who needs 2 nights for instant digital streaming.

Redbox is cool and all but I really hate waiting for the new releases to finally become available.

cant say i didn't think something like this would happen netflix has a monopoly on streaming at the moment hulu was a couple of years late and to expensive for what it offers.
