    Well, let's find out tomorrow.
    @machomuu: Well, you got to admit, the number of Xbox 360 consoles is more than Wii and PS3 (just read a report somewhere ...)

    Grrrrrh There won't be a free Hulu service at all? Only Hulu PLUS? I'll be sticking to Netflix....

    That ref. advertising... You should get rid of it.

    Hulu really lost its appeal to me when I can just do, you know, piracy.

    Pirate an entire season of a show and get it in better quality without annoying advertisements and the stuff. Or I can also get recent shows with the same benefits. It's how I've stayed up to date on Dexter (which isn't on Hulu), for example.

    The service itself seems pretty stupid though. I'm already paying roughly $5 a month (at least) for Xbox Live Gold. Why should I pay another $8 for Hulu? I might as well get a Netflix subscription and get that on the Xbox. It won't get current shows but once it comes out on DVD, you've got the whole season.

    I'm also pretty patient so I don't care if it takes a couple of months to get to DVD.

    The problem with Hulu plus is that it still has ads.

    At first, I think they don't have ads for Hulu Plus. But actually, they have. Hulu Plus is subscription for people who want to watch new episode of a program and still have ads. (They can go to the website of the broadcaster like NBC, Fox ... to watch it for free.) Why do we still have to PAY for ADS...

    Let's see...program my DVR and catch many more episodes than Hulu Plus, and then I can fast forward through commercials...FOR FREE


    or...I can pay $8, not guaranteeing access to a full season, and I have to sit through commercials.

    Yeah....Hulu Plus sounds awesome.

    Hulu is shit, especially if you aren't American. Actually, American networks as a whole are stupid, Hulu blocks outsiders from streaming episodes and you can't watch South Park on South Park Studios unless you are American. Funny, we freely broadcast streams from sports games here in Canada to those outside the country.

    First, the best selling console line is false. Wii is the best selling console around and has been for awhile.

    I already knew about Hulu too, but I am disappointed to know that it is just Hulu Plus. All it is, for those that don't know, a way to watch even more episodes past the most recent five that Hulu is allowed to show for free. I can't say for sure about the ads, but as they are a major part of how Hulu gets cash, I would imagine that they are still there to make you waste time.

    My friend was anticipating Hulu, not sure if he knew it would only be Plus. Regardless, I'm sure he won't be using the service now. He knows how to use the internet.

    Just got a email. Sign in to XBL, and go to Hulu Plus in the Dashboard. They're giving everyone a free 1 week trial. Just thought I'd mention it. Oh, you might wanna sign up before May 6th, as that's when the promotion ends(?).

    I like the idea of putting Hulu on the Xbox, but I might only use it for new episodes that are not availiable on Netflix. Also, they should put the original free Hulu on the Xbox as well, not HuluPlus only, just add the extra movies and shows to the HuluPlus accounts.
