Hulu – Another good TV links Replacement

October 29, 2007

I’ve noticed that my link to sources that people can use now that tv-links.co.uk is gone has generated a lot of hits. The thing I left out when linking to that original posts are the 100% free and legal ways to stream your television (and most of these sites can handle the bandwidth).

www.fox.com
www.abc.com
www.cbs.com
www.nbc.com
www.cwtv.com

All these major networks have live and streaming episodes – they have commercials – but that’s fine with me since I can now watch what I want when I want it. Law and Order is still missing though.

In comes Hulu, here is what the NY Times has to say:

Hulu is the new-media creation of two old-media rivals, NBC, which is owned by General Electric, and Fox, owned by the News Corporation. Since March, when the broadcasters announced their joint effort to bring free, ad-supported television shows to the Web, critics have pounced, predicting the venture would be doomed by diverging agendas, technical challenges and an all-powerful enemy: YouTube.

While competing with YouTube may or may not work – didn’t demographics entirely. I can say this is going to bring in a new era of interactive live television on demand. Maybe the big companies are paying attention to their consumers for a change.

From TechCrunch – here is a list to the initial shows to be offered on Hulu:

Will they be complete series – I don’t know but I hope so – I’m sure they won’t be complete resolution since some of these titles may interfere with DVD sales – but I would assume that would be dependent on if they make more money from commercials or the 19.99 that a lot of these go for per season on DVD. Only time will tell.

  3. Streaming tv online is great, now you can watch the programs you want when you have time rather than planning your day around the shedule.

  4. I like to download using torrents and watch on my TV rather than the PC. The authorities are trying to crack down on this though.
