Looks like we found the culprit:

 

And it's Yahoo!

I wonder if it's Google trying to buy the world again.

It about damn time! Wow, Hulu's old management was horrible. Commercials everywhere, every 5 seconds, 2 more commercials would show up. It would be great if a company like Google or Microsoft would buy Hulu and turn it completely free. No commercials, no membership. Just like YouTube but with TV programming. Between Hulu blocking every portable device to Hulu doubling up on the commercials, it is no wonder why they are going down under. I say their greedy actions will soon be justified.

I would rather have some commercials and have access to a show I like than not have the show at all. I'm sure the commercials are not completely up to Hulu. If the content provider wants a lot of money for letting them host a show then more commercials are one of the ways to make it happen. Think about it. There are some shows with no commercials, some with one at a time and a few even have 2 in a row. I don't get why people complain about commercials when they're less than a minute long and the cost of a subscription is under $10. Cable costs a lot more and you're talking several minutes of commercials. Stop whining.

I remember long ago... back in the 1990s, how everything was once free to access online. By watching a commercial, you are technically paying. So add extra to that $10!

Some of Hulu's commercials are more than 1 minute.Sometimes they have a featured sponsor commercial, and then 2 commercials to follow. If I wanted to watch a life time of commercials, I watch TV.

The commercials have no relation to the show that you are sometimes watching. If am watching cartoon comedy, advertise about that. If I am watching shows from the 80s, play an ad from the 80s. Maybe then, people would be installing ad blockers onto their computers. You are only one of a select few that actually enjoys watching commercials.

Never said I enjoyed watching them. I will put up with them if it enables Hulu to obtain the rights to the shows I do like watching.

I mean, even if... How much more can it cost if there were a commercial free option. At this point, I would pay anything for a commerical-free, a la carte option... One thing is for certain though, their ads are very annoying, because they are usually the same ad that repeats itself. Usually from one rich phone company. Drives me insane.

Hulu used to be better. Now there are way too many advertisments (even for hulu plus, which is a rip off) and they have less content
