Hulu…My Online TV Lover

Angry Husband and I decided to cut down our cable bill earlier in the summer. Which means we got rid of one of our DVR’s. Yes, we had his and her DVR’s. Our living room TV DVR was filled with shows from The History Channel and Science Fiction stuff. I prefer the likes of Gossip Girl and Greek.

Now that we have one DVR, something had to give. We seemed to have overlapping TV shows issues. Angry Husband ranted the other night about Melrose Place. He said that my shows were taking over his DVR. Yea, whatever…

But since I’m a computer addict. I decided that I would try and watch as many shows as I could on the Internet. That’s the awesome thing about the Internet. You can watch TV on there now. Several of my friends who do not have cable TV watch their shows on the net.

I’ve found that Hulu is an awesome place to watch TV shows. They have a ton of the brand new shows on there too. You can watch some full episodes on the networks websites too, but I find that they seem to lock up with all the advertising. I know that Hulu has advertising too, but it rarely locks up my computer.

I love that Hulu has all kinds of information on their website about their company. But really, what is Hulu?

From their site:

Founded in March 2007, Hulu is operated independently by a dedicated management team with offices in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Beijing. NBC Universal, News Corp., The Walt Disney Company, Providence Equity Partners and the Hulu team share in the ownership stake of the company.

Hulu’s mission is to help people find and enjoy the world’s premium video content when, where and how they want it. As we pursue this mission, we aspire to create a service that users, advertisers, and content owners unabashedly love.

Hulu is an online video service that offers hit TV shows, movies and clips at Hulu.com and other online destination sites — anytime in the U.S. For more details on Hulu’s service, check out the Hulu product tour.

I've never been on Hulu, but there are a few shows I need to watch. Thanks for reminding me!

I love Hulu too! I often keep it on in the background when I'm working on my computer, as I find I "listen" to tv more than I actually "watch" it anyway. The added bonus is that I can bring my laptop with me anywhere in the house. I recently "watched" the entire series of The Riches while I painted one of the bedrooms. It was awesome! Love your blog, btw.
