I can’t believe there are people that don’t know about this. I had a friend last week that linked the Charlie Brown Christmas Special, but from YouTube where it’s in 3 parts. I commented that you can watch it on Hulu in much better quality and all in one piece. HE DELETED MY LINK! He must have either thought my comment was Spam, or that I was trying to sell something. Just moments ago a friend lamented on Facebook that she missed cable t.v. and all the classic holiday specials. I kindly directed her to Hulu.
Hulu.com is a joint venture of NBC and Fox. They also have shows from ABC, History, Discovery as well as movies. They recently introduced Hulu Plus which is a subscription service, but none of the free stuff has been removed. We haven’t had cable/satellite in over 7 years, but never miss House, Bones, Castle or The Simpsons. You can watch them when you get ready, pause, rewind, or watch again and again. Unlike some websites, the player enlarges to full screen and the controls (buttons, progress meter) disappear. I hooked up our laptop to display the picture on our t.v. and run the sound through our 5 channel surround system. You can’t tell we aren’t watching television. In many ways it’s better.
Hulu is free and legal. There is no software to purchase or download. The programs are streamed, not downloaded, so they take up no space on your hard drive. It’s paid for by commercials, but much less than on t.v. Visit the site, see what you think, and tell a friend. There is no reason for everyone not to know about this.
