If you have to pay for access *and* watch adverts you can't fast-forward through, People like me will just stop watching. I was willing to put up with the annoyance of the ads, but I'm not going to pay for it when there's so much free content available elsewhere.
They've been turning a profit, even in this crappy economy, so this strikes me as a little bit greedy. I wonder if they even realize that the change pretty much guarantees that you'll see all of their content pop up commercial-free on torrent sites?
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
My unnamed sources say it's not going to occur, they also work at Hulu.
TO all who argued for your love of HULU?.......TOLD YOU! :P
" undisclosed people close to the situation"
From what I've always understood Hulu has survived solely on advertisements. And because they are free, I can easily put up with the ads. Because I'm watching them online whenever I want, how many times I want, and they still air less ads than you see on TV.
I can see them charging for adding Hulu to the Xbox, but keep it free for PC access.
Until I see an OFFICIAL report, I'll remain skeptical.
I haven't been an avid hulu user since I discovered the world of HD videos so I basically watch my TV shows in the .mkv format.
Still I agree with Marius, they should charge for the Xbox, iPad or any other device they wish to transfer over and they should keep the PC free. Hulu will lose a lot of loyal visitors if they do this, still I hope this is just another fluke like the hulu plus that was supposed to happen this June.

@3vi1 Agreed, Netflix seems far more appealing suddenly.
This may not be the best business decision. Ad-sponsored Internet feeds of TV shows are easy to find-- perhaps not as convenient as Hulu, but they're out there.

Oh My GOD people. Hulu is going to remain just the way it is for anyone that doesn't play. The ONLY difference is that when you pay you get more back episodes. WHY is everyone reporting this like you Hulu is going to charge everyone for everything.
If you wanna use Hulu just the way you currently are then guess what that will still be FREE!!!!!
I really don't understand the spin everyone is putting on this.
