Hulu is decent and I'm still a subscriber to Plus, but they really need to start getting some more content. There's dozens of these no name shows or foreign shows but the amount of quality shows they add is pretty low. I've watched just about everything that interests me. I don't know if it's Hulu's fault or Roku's, or both, but my only problem is the terrible navigation they have on Roku. You have to navigate through so many sub-categories that it seems to take forever to find what you want. The paging speed is also very slow when picking the episode you want to watch.

I see this comment often and I think "really?". Is it that painful to watch two 30 second commercials? Some shows don't even have any. It's one of the best sites that I've found for TV shows and the alternative is watching several minutes of commercials on cable or regular TV. Suck it up.

No, the alternatives are:

 - Netflix: Sure you need to wait until the next season, but if you don't watch TV series as they're airing, it's much better.

 - DVRs

 - TV station websites

 - Torrents

I don't mind commercials for Hulu, but for Hulu+ it makes no sense.

I agree no commercials would be better, but I don't see the harm in having a few. *shrug*

Maybe in the future they'll work on eliminating them for Hulu Plus.

I use a combination of Hulu for TV shows and Blockbuster for my videos. Netflix was easily replaceable.

I'm still a Netflix guy, but like many others have been looking for an alternative. To me, Hulu does not cut it.

About two weeks ago I signed up for a free 30 day Hulu subscription. I canceled it today. I cannot find anything on Hulu I watch, that I cannot find on the networks website for free.

As far as I can see Hulu is just an overrated search engine for finding free content on the web, with the exception of a LOT of old black n white movies, and documentaries. Most of the documentaries can be found on Netflix.

When Hulu starts to offer HBO / Showtime, then I'll reconsider - which probably won't happen anytime soon.
