Anyone tried this site out?  If you like to watch tv and movies on your computer this is a must website.

I believe its owned by fox and nbc but it even has links to ABC shows.


I hooked my computer up to my HDTV and bought a wireless mouse and keyboard because of this site.

Its amazing, imo.  I may cancel my cable because of it.  I saw the supebowl ad with a baldwin in it and I have been watching almost every day.  Im mostly watching the Firefly series right now.

It doesnt jump and the video has good steady quality.  It even shows in HD when available.

I was part of the beta testing as well. It wasn't that good when I first registered but that was 18 months ago.

Hulu has come a long way and that's how I do most of my TV watching these days.  Multiple monitors and you are working on one screen while watching on the other.

You can even stream hulu through your Playstation 3 in HD and then throw it on the big screen.  While it doesn't look 100%HD at that point its still of real good quality.

Watch Kitchen Confidential!!!!!  Great series that I ended up finding by accident on Hulu.  I found Burn Notice through Hulu as well and never would have watched it otherwise.

So what's the deal?  Is it free?  Can you watch back episodes?

It's free with very limited commercials.  It's legal as well as I think Fox and NBC own part of it.

hulu.com

I just canceled my cable bill from $130 to $60.  I just get basic cable now and internet.

hulu.com is better than cable, imo.  Except I will miss sports but I live in Auburn so I don't get to see Florida sports anyways unless I'm at a bar.

100%legal.

yes, it's free.

Some stuff they have entire seasons on there.  Others 'only' the last 4-5 etc.. depending on the rights they get.

They even have full  length movies... like Girl next door etc..

Even US proxy sites don't seem to work for me.   I can't view it.

I love this site for watching alot of the older shows and it has a huge library of over 500 shows from the 70's to 2009, and you get to pick which episode you wanna watch and it is also completely free!
