Hulu just decided to charge customers what they have been offering for free before. ( all seasons and 720p streaming )

there are way way WAY less commercials than cable TV (which you pay about 10x as much for), and 100% of the content is on demand

There's something like only three 15 second commercials throughout a 30 minute program, or sometimes they let you opt to watch a single 1:30 commercial with NO commercials in between.

That said - I don't think Hulu Plus really offers much more than regular Hulu, except for the fact that you HAVE to pay for Hulu Plus if you want to run it on your PS3 or iPad or whatever. If you're able to hook a real computer up to your TV to run free Hulu though, I would suggest that (though there are rumors that they will eventually do away entirely with the free version)

I was thinking about it for my PS3, but if you're gonna have to pay for ads, screw that.

Hulu is nothing more than a user friendly GUI for people that don't know how to utilize the internet sources I've been using to acquire free for media for years.

The only reason I pay for cable is so I can have the luxury of turning on the tv and seeing the live news and stuff like that.

Or what about last night, could you turn hulu on and catch the new years coverage?

Until these services alleviate their problem with being disconnected from the live real time world, they are worthless in comparison to cable seeing as I've been able to download any tv show/movie onto my computer and view it on my TV for years..

I have hulu plus, it's nice for watching full seasons of old TV shows. I'm watching season 2, episode 11 of The Pretender right now in another tab.

they were free for nearly five years with commercials...paying doesn't cut the fact down it just opens up content that is on demand which can be for the most part found on either network sites or the shows site.
if your gonna pay for great shows on hulu such as: Air Wolf, Detroit 187 (canceled), McHales Navy, Kojack, the Donna Reed show, and a few other shows that haven't seen the air in 30 years....go for it.
