    There is merit to both services. Netflix has generally better selection of movies and solid seasons of shows. Hulu generally has deals with new shows of current seasons and loads of anime. As stated, there are ads, but if ads bother you that much, you might want to re-evaluate your life. On demand, HD, and large selections at your disposal, I can deal with a few ads. But at the end of the day, they are both pretty limited in selection. Most of the content on either service are only worth an average of 2.5 to 3 stars anyways.

    People pay for cable but there are commercials on the vast majority of channels. The reason why is because the content you're getting isn't developed from where you're getting it. Time Warner Cable doesn't make your favorite TV shows, and neither does Hulu (unless your favorite TV shows are those Hulu-based ones, and I doubt that). Hulu needs to pay the content developers, so they make up for that by ads. Of course, the ad problem could go away if you torrent. (:

    Hulu has a lot of Korean Drama that my parents watch. It's easy for them to browse instead of making me DL all the time. They don't seem to be bothered by the ads.

    the ads are really not that bad, i hated it at first but now it doesnt bother me as much. The ads are only about 1 minute, sometimes 30 secs every 10 mins or so, which is better than cable/sat/tv which are like 2-3 mins every 10 mins and you have to pay there too (unless your using hd antenna). hulu also has newer seasons of current shows, netflix is usually one season behind. they both have their plus and minuses, I subscribe to both and use both almost daily. my only real problem with hulu is when it comes to anime they generally only have sub only, and for the ones they have dubs its just thrown in with the subs, kind of a pain to navigate. where as on netflix you can usually just change the audio language after the epsode starts playing
