Is Hulu Plus Worth the Extra Money?

From the feature editorial:

"While the Xbox 360 is primarily a gaming console, its feature-rich dashboard provides many other forms of entertainment for its consumers. From Netflix and ESPN streaming to Facebook and Twitter integration, Microsoft’s console offers an overwhelming wealth of additional applications. Now gamers can add Hulu Plus to that list. As a promotion, Hulu Plus will be available for all Xbox users (Gold or Silver subscribers) from April 29th to May 6th. If you haven’t gotten around to downloading the weeklong access, head over to the dashboard and get to it! After having toyed around with the service for some time, I must say that I am quite impressed. For those that don’t know, Hulu is a video streaming service that has a wide selection of television shows, movies and clips – much like Netflix. However, unlike Netflix, Hulu has brand new content, including recent television episodes."

I had it on my iPad 2 for a week; didn't renew....

On a portable I'd understand, but on a console? Pfft.

Just turn on any old computer and watch it for free.

Hell no. Honestly it's a piece of a crap. Worst app I've ever used on my 360. Netflix offers almost the same selection (minus the Black & White movies which is almost all Hulu Offers) plus more. Not to mention Netflix has party support.

I was really looking forward to Hulu Plus, which is a shame because of how crappy it is.

I have both, and Netflix doesn't really have "new" episodes of tv shows. Want to see the first 5 episodes of the latest season of something like House, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation on Netflix? Well you're going to have to wait until the season is finished and until it's released on DVD (that's usually the same time it's available for streaming as well).

Hulu Plus is okay, but it's not THAT crappy. Sure, Netflix has the better selection, but their selection (of streaming stuff) consists mostly of old stuff.

Also, in addition to being able to keep up with current shows (my family hogs the tv and dvr and I like to watch tv at my own time, so watching it when it's on really isn't an option) I can watch the new episodes in high definition.

No. I watch it on PC but just standard version...I wouldn't pay for it.
