Hulu Takes A Beautiful Thing And Ruins It


Hulu has brought our TV shows to the internet and made it much easier to watch TV whenever you feel like it.  If you miss a couple weeks of your favorite show, it’ll probably still be there waiting for you.  Yes, you do have to deal with ads and there’s no way to fast forward through them, but you still get to watch TV for free at your convenience.  It made everyone happy, Hulu gets money through their ads and people get their internet TV.  Well, Hulu has officially gotten a touch more greedy and have marked the beginning of the end.  It was fun while it lasted.

One overpaid TV executive has stated that,“It’s time to start getting paid for broadcast content online.” He also went on to say that, “I think what we need to do is deliver that content to consumers in a way where they will appreciate the value.”  Tragically Hulu has agreed.  There is no official date that they’re going to start charging for their services, so that we consumers can “appreciate the value”.  However, it’s said that this is probably going to happen sometime within 2010.  When this comes to pass, I imagine there will suddenly be a mysterious spike in piracy.
