    I’m surprised at this news, since premium users are still subjected to adverts. I figured that would sort itself quickly but maybe not?

    • I LOVE Hulu. It’s the only place I can get my most of my favorite shows available to watch the day after they air. Netflix and Amazon, with their decaded old Wal-Mart bargain bin selection, don’t even come close.

      I’ve never understood the hate on Hulu Prime showing ads. When I paid for cable TV, I still saw ads. (and I paid far more, and saw far more ads)

      If you look at the subscription cost as going towards increased content access and broader device support, seeing ads becomes more palatable.

        I guess I’m not being clear. If they need more money to NOT show me ads, I would GLADLY pay. Netflix gets this. Amazon gets this. Hulu chaining itself to the bones of an old, irrelevant ad-model in the face of superior tech is going to net them sinking into the tarpit with the yahoos that oppose Aereo. Hulu will lose, ultimately, because they’ve made so many concessions already with big networks. Who wants ads? Not me. I’ll stick to couch potato till someone will let me pay. First world problems are great. RIP TV networks.

        • Netflix and Amazon are streaming DVDs! Yay you pay for no ads, but you have to wait 6-12 months for shows to come out on DVD plus shows like late night talk shows don’t come out on DVD. Content is king in this business and Netflix has none.
