Hulu is a pretty nice website and service to catch up on some of your favorite old TV shows. I received an email recently that let me know they now offer a Hulu Plus service for $7.99 a month which will give me an even wider access to my favorite shows.
The challenge for me is that it doesn’t have access to ALL of my favorite shows, so it’s still not a viable replacement for my AT&T U-verse service at this point. With the recent squabbles by AT&T and Scripps Networks (Food Network, HGTV, etc.), the motivation to find another TV alternative was a little heightened around the Bean household.
One of the questions I have about Hulu Plus though, that I couldn’t easily find the answer to on their website, was whether or not I had immediate access to to current shows as they were broadcast on other networks. So, for example, could we watch shows the same night they aired, or was there some kind of delay before they were available via Hulu?
I have really enjoyed our U-verse packages, but the idea of getting exactly what I want without all the other stuff, at a lower price is an attractive option. I’ve also been keeping an eye on what’s happening with Google TV.
