It's strange because Hulu Plus is a premium service and they show commercials. I'm interested to see where all this goes over the next few years. There is so much fragmentation, and so many regional restrictions and timing restrictions, etc., that it is really just too much to keep on top of.
I want to have a bunch of places on the web (or on my device) where I can go and choose from the same selection of media -- all the stuff I want in a number of different places (ie. competition). I've already given up on that dream, however. Well, the "legal" version of that dream, anyways.
Hopefully if this Hulu business actually does happen Criterion will find a new streaming partner. They are by far the primary reason that Hulu is interesting to me.
