No...Hulu sux..I used it for one day and cancelled my free week trial. I subscribed just to watch the Walking Dead, and they have zero episodes. At least Netflix has the first season, but I don't like Netflix either...lol.

Some are limited to web broadcast only. Usually it will indicate that if you look it up on the Web version of Hulu. Seems stupid to me, but there must be a reason.

We have Hulu Plus for our TVs. I have to say, paying extra for fewer features seems wrong. Yet I still do it because 8 bucks a month is waaaaaaay cheaper than cable.
Between Netflix streaming and Hulu Plus, we stay entertained.

We just got it last month as my wife is the only one to typically watch TV. We already had Netflix on the PS3, and I had just cancelled our Dish as it was getting ridiculous for 250 channels and I only watched 2.

Friday I turned it on to try to find a good show. Nothing. Nothing at all. complete bull**** in my opinion. if the wife doesn't use it more in the next month I am cancelling it. Under the Sci-Fi section, all the movies were from 1930 and 1950. Serious? And not even good ones.

Phew!! I cancelled it with great relish, and I was afraid your post would point out something really COOL on HUlu, lol.

Yeah, eff that BS.

The interface and search on HULU SUCKS unforgiveably. Makes Netflix look like freaking Steve Jobs designed it.

Worse, it sucks across multiple platforms. We have it built in to our VIZIO TV and on our ROKU box. It is completely Byzantine in its construction. It freezes during the mandatory commercial breaks. It fails to keep up with what you have watched and haven't watched in the queue.

But still, I get to watch Modern Family and wifey gets to watch Grimm. Apt. 23 is funny, and some of the original programming is quite good (SPY, Booth at the End).

In all, if you don't want cable, it works okay for $8/month.
