“Hulu’s ambitious and never-ending mission is to help you find and enjoy
the world’s premium content when, where and how you want it. We hope to
provide you with the web’s most comprehensive selection of premium
programming across all genres and formats – television shows, feature
films, clips, and more. Additionally, we want to give you more choices
of when and where you can enjoy your favorite programming, while
creating innovative experiences that let you watch and participate in
online video in new and exciting ways.”
Hulu features over 150 shows from 11 networks in 13 different genres. My favorites are 30 Rock, Heroes, Friday Night Lights, and Arrested Development but evidently, The Simpsons and Family Guy are the most popular right now. The cool thing is, video streams are now available for download in the new MySpace PrimeTime community within MySpaceTV.
As with any beta site, there are still some things to work on, and I would venture to say that come 2008, Hulu will have addressed a lot of those issues and moved forward with their original strategies in mind, those being, to compete with iTunes and YouTube.
