Now that Hulu Plus has been live for two months, everyone has had time to dissect the selection. To everyone's dismay, the content offered on the $10 per month service is looking a little scant. A new analysis by research firm One Touch Intelligence says that of all the shows on Hulu Plus, over 88% of them are already free on Hulu.
For that extra $10 dollars, it would seem you're not getting a huge amount of new content. When looking at the raw numbers, it might be a little more comforting. Out of the 28,000 episodes on Hulu Plus, 3,345 of them are only for paid subscribers. It is a few thousand shows, many of them popular current programs.
But still, most users are unimpressed with the current selection. Hulu Plus is still in preview, and has only been operating for 60 days. As time goes on, more content will likely be added. It will be interesting to see where Hulu Plus stands when it is no longer calling itself a preview.
