Hulu Comments

Average..

about Hulu and Netflix Nov 2016

Hulu gives a chance to watch our favorite videos from the browser. But hulu is region specific, has ads in it and has less plan options. Netflix has more plan options, is available everywhere and has no commercials.

Still waiting for worldwide coverage.

Still waiting for worldwide coverage. Would make stop downloading TV series immediately, only specials would be downloaded and movies. :D

Hulu Plus sucks.

Negative Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about Hulu and Netflix Jun 2011

Hulu Plus sucks. There, I said it.

If you want legal software for watching a large collection of copyrighted material, go with Netflix. Its video collection is nearly as big (as you can see from this slightly outdated chart http://bit.ly/cSATFK ), it's $0.99 cheaper, and you can get physical DVDs delivered to your mailbox as well as streamed to your TV.

Great for watching TV episodes normally removed from Youtube. XD

about Hulu and Netflix, YouTube Jun 2011

Hulu has its uses; it's great for watching TV episodes that would normally be removed from Youtube. XD

As long as your in the U.S., that is. Personally, I prefer using Netflix, but that requires a subscription fee and only has older episodes.

Not useful outside of USA.

about Hulu and Hotspot Shield Jun 2011

Hulu is blocked outside the USA, and workarounds like Hotspot shield have been blocked now as well. Not useful outside of USA.
