    Hulu plus app

    I've been using Netflix and it's been streaming fairly well with not reall any interruptions...was wondering how the hulu plus app streams? I know a lot of people are upset with the $7.99 subscription but does it stream without much buffering like my Netflix app will?

    Works ok when my internet is working well. The computer is better at buffering when the net connection is dodgy. I've never used the Netflix app, so I can't make a direct comparison. I have used ABC's app for streaming shows on the iPad, and it's about the same.

    I think People are most upset that they pay $8 and still have to deal with commercials. I dont think it is the streaming quality that is the issue. Personally, if you are already paying a subscription fee, there should be no commercials. This is why I dont subscribe to Hulu.

    PS - I love my Netflix.

    I look at the fee, then I consider how much more I'd be paying for cable TV, and it doesn't bother me anymore.

    Hold in mind I watch most of my stuff on the computer, and only occasionally use the iPad. There are a few benefits to having Hulu Plus, even for the computer. One is that a lot of the shows lose the expiration date. And there is a little bit more content.

    I've considered Netflix, but I'm more interested in TV shows than movies. While both services have both, Hulu looks to have more of the shows I'm interested in. At least for now.

    Yea I hear ya....I don't mind paying the 8 bucks as I am with Netflix also......nor do I really mind the commercials, there a lot shorter thanks regular tv commercials. If I get it I just want it to stream without stopping a lot.....as does my abc app sometimes

    I must say that july plus has impressed me and it almost allowed me to cancel cable. The only thing its missing is BBC for top gear.

    Hili is great, but Hulu Plus is very limited for the price and what you get. I'd recommend Netflix, regular Hulu and watching shows directly from the network websites and skip Hulu Plus.

    Has anyone else noticed how hard a time the auto correct has with the word Hulu?

    If I was still on the road a lot for my job I think I would have both the Hulu app and Netflix. As it is now, I generally watch everything at home so using a remote desktop connection to view Hulu from my PC is a much cheaper option. I really have to wonder how long Hulu is going to be around. I know they have some serious money behind them, but they almost seem to be in a no-win situation when it comes to charging for content.

    Funny thing about auto correct, it isn't.
