.....they just cut the price to $8......


Hulu officially launches pay service, cuts price

......Online video site Hulu formally launched its premium streaming service Wednesday and cut the price to $8 a month.

The service launched as a preview about five months ago for $2 more. Hulu said subscribers will receive credit for the difference on what they already paid.


Hulu's service offers back seasons of NBC, Fox and ABC and other TV shows, such as "30 Rock" and "Glee."

The free portion of the site, which has less content, remains available. Hulu Plus, however, offers high-definition content and is available on a slew of Internet-connected devices, including the iPhone, the iPad and the PlayStation 3. The free Hulu is only available on computers.....



HU you gonna' call......??

I think the tipping point is probably around $4.95... since you still have to sit through commercials and don't get video output from iOS devices.

Yeah, the commercial thing is tough.

But I understand it - I pay for cable and I still have commercials to watch.

But $8 or $10/month is too steep - when people start to add these things up.

Still too much for shows with commercials - get rid of them and I might consider it.

I've been paying since they let me start giving them money. I'm now getting $2 back for every month plus an extra $2 for the free week everyone gets now that I didn't get. So it nice that they're being thoughtful. I do wish they had some more stuff that was on cable. Like Conan for instance.

Wait, $8 and you still get commercials? No go for me. With cable I can record it and skip commercials.

But not only that, but with netflix I pay $8/mo and don't get commercials.

I have no idea why I'd pay for that. Before you start with the target audience thing, I'm male, white, 40ish, a prime target for crap tv, but there's nothing here I couldn't get for free elsewhere.
Actually apart from the Office, there's nothing on Hulu + that interests me at all!

I can stream Netflix to my Wii, but not Hulu apparently! That sucks too.
And I'd be able to PAY to be advertised at!!! Deal!

A while back I read a comment on this subject that said "half price for a crappy service is still too much to pay."
And they didn't even lower it to half price!

On the other hand I'd happily pay a tenner to watch BBC iPlayer in the States.

Do the people that think Hulu+ would be a waste of money even have a device you can play it on. If you're just using a computer there's no reason to not stick with Hulu free.

Edit: And I'm not tlaking about iPhones, while it's nice to have I barely ever watch stuff on that screen. But I will bust out the iPad. I'm talking more like a PS3, Roku, or some other device to get it on the big screen.
