A recent survey may serve as a wakeup call to broadcast networks and cable companies that their subscriber base may soon be slipping away. According to a Credit Suisse survey, approximately 30 percent of Netflix users between the ages of 18 and 24 are using Netflix's Watch Instantly service to watch TV and movies instead of paying for cable...

And just like that, the iPad becomes an even more attractive looking tablet for those who are overly concerned with consuming media on it. Apple didn't exactly get off on the right foot by rejecting Adobe's Flash, which is a platform through which a vast majority of Internet-based multi-media is distributed. But since the iPad has been such... Read more...
In a recent interview, CBS Chief Executive Les Moonves said CBS is in talks to bring some of its TV shows to Hulu. According to Moonves, the talks are focused on Hulu Plus, a paid subscription service that launched in June and costs $9. CBS is the only major broadcaster who doesn't currently offer shows through Hulu. Initially, CBS stayed... Read more...
There've been rumors swirling around that the popular TV service Hulu was planning to launch a paid subscription service for quite some time. Those rumors have now been confirmed in a company blog post by Jason Kilar, the CEO of Hulu. According to Kilar, Hulu Plus isn't a replacement for Hulu, but a complementary... Read more...
Will it be Sony to usher in the pay-for generation of Hulu? It's not the most positive designation in the world to have, but given Sony's expertise in the media realm, and just how elegant their own multi-media store solution is on the PlayStation 3, we wouldn't really mind it. The PS3 has been a multi-media monster from Day 1, being the only... Read more...
Enjoy watching Hulu? Well, you better go ahead and take the next week off of work in order to catch up on all of those old episodes of your favorite show, because the Free Lunch Parade may be ending. Ever since Hulu was introduced, users and analysts wondered if NBC would be able to keep it free. Users are forced to... Read more...
We're still waiting for this so-called Hulu Plus subscription to go into effect, but while everything's still free, we'll try to pretend that Hulu is just updating their video player out of the kindness of their heart. There's no certain indication that this overhaul is leading up to a paid option for select "premium"... Read more...
Boxee has quickly grown from a niche application meant only for Mac users to a Web content portal that everyone wants a piece of. Even D-Link, who agreed to create a uniquely shaped set-top box earlier in the year meant specifically for putting Boxee on the television and giving consumers the ability to finally squash...

Now that you've been sucked in and have grown hopelessly addicted to Hulu, it looks like you may have to pay in order to continue getting "your fix." Since its introduction, Hulu has been free to end-users. They simply logged on, selected a show, and enjoyed the stream (so long as they watched the ads). It felt... Read more...
We've been joking for years now that Google is taking over the world. Slowly but surely, our laugh is growing dim, because it actually does actually look like Google is doing their best to achieve global domination. First it was search domination, then it was e-mail domination, then it was breaking into the clean... Read more...
We don't enjoy saying that the first ball has dropped here, but it sure seems that way. Hulu, which was called by NBC an "evil plan to destroy the world," might just be destroying NBC's hope of raking in any serious profits. The site delivers all sorts of television programs to online viewers at no cost, only... Read more...
The relationship between Boxee and Hulu has been strained ever since early 2009, when Hulu suddenly and unexpectedly removed its content from being available to Boxee users. If you're not aware, Boxee is merely a software overlay that acts as a portal to web content; it essentially opens content from web sites the same way a typical web browser... Read more...
We've covered Apple's forthcoming iPad with a pretty good level of detail, but one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb is Flash. Or, the lack thereof, we should say. Steve Jobs was adamant on stage during his iPad introduction that the browsing experience was best in class, but when we think about browsing, we... Read more...
What started out as a simple, innocent "plan to destroy the world" may actually, in fact, destroy the world. Hulu has always been something that's "too good to be true." Free programming on-demand, wherever you have an Internet connection? Even with pre-roll ads, it's still a solid deal for the consumer, but it may not always be that way.... Read more...
Hulu recently signed an agreement with Warner Music Group to provide music videos, live concerts, and artist interviews. Artist pages and channels will also be featured on Hulu. The band Muse already has a page on the site. "We're pleased to be working with Hulu as we expand our premium ad-supported video strategy to provide our artists with... Read more...
Boxee has been on a wild, wild ride since debuting to the world last year, and for those looking for new ways to catch more content online, it has become the go-too application. And while it has certainly taken off, there's still lots of room to grow. One of the main reasons that it has yet to become a household name outside of the tech community... Read more...
Apple has long maintained that its Apple TV product was nothing more than "a hobby," so it makes sense to think that it has seen the fewest amount of updates when looking at its array of non-computer devices. The firm's Mac lineup and iPod/iPhone lineup gets refreshed at least once per year, while the Apple TV sees a firmware update maybe... Read more...
We're not quite sure when it happened, but media streaming has taken off in a big way. Just about every consumer electronics company with any experience in the HD/Wi-Fi/routing businesses has decided to jump in, with Netgear being no different. The new Digital Entertainer Live is a step-up from the EVA9150 introduced... Read more...
We've always heard that something's "on" when it hits the mainstream, so we guess it's about time we finally confessed that Internet TV has emerged from the closet. For the longest while, Hulu, Boxee and the like dominated the underground Web TV content scene, but it wasn't too long ago that major cable companies like Comcast and Time Warner... Read more...
Paramount, MGM, and Lionsgate have jointly announced the launch of Epix, an online HD streaming service and HD TV station that will make it possible for users to watch films from these three studios for free in HD.

Jon Miller, the former AOL boss, recently took over digital initiatives at News Corp. Only weeks into the job, and Miller is already making waves in the industry with his visions of a future where Hulu could charge for at least some of the TV shows and movies on its site. News Corp. owns a sizable portion of Hulu, so when someone like Miller... Read more...
