Hulu can charge whatever they want, but who's gonna pay (especially in this economy)!

Exactly.... Hulu begins to charge for content. And then that's when I begin to stop going there. It's a tough racket but in the internet biz, you have to figure out more creative ways to monetize.

I third that opinion. I don't think Hulu has a big enough foothold to do this except for maybe a few content items.
If they go too far with it, they'll see major competition spring up.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
hope they don't, just heard about this thing
Well I delt with the boxee thing and I use there desktop app, which is not bad, but not as good as boxee, but if they start charging I'll just stop watching. I don't mind the ads other than the fact that they play the same one over and over again during a show.
Yea that would be a bright idea. But I see them only havin a shot at charging for the movie side of it. As seeing as now most of the networks actually show the tv shows on there sites as well. So if they start charging its not like you just cant go to the networks site and watch the shows. Well majority of them anyways. I think it would be a bad move on there part.

The great thing is that is HULU begin doing the "i'm greedy" then Youtube could or other website could upgrade their contents for free. That is the beauty of YOUTUBE and if they want to compete in that market NBC "HULU" better stay the way it is...

If Hulu were to start charging money for its current service, it would die. I think they know that, too, so will be looking for ways to make it worthwhile. I'm pretty sure I would pay for the service if they could include shows and movies from networks like HBO or Showtime.
I would definitely pay for Hulu if it meant watching Dexter without having to pay for the whole pricey cable package. I suspect that this is what Jon is talking about.
I guess they need to pay for those "We're Aliens" commercials somehow.
