2 out of 5 eggs Hulu plus....for the ads!!! 12/17/2013

This review is from: Hulu Plus 1 Month - Holiday Offer (Email Delivery)

Pros:

Some unique content available.
Some streams are higher quality.

Cons:

What started as a great idea from Hulu quickly became noting more than what cable companies already offer, pay to watch ads!!! What a great idea!!!
http://www.hulu.com/support/article/20356372
Lack of supported devices, other companies don't make you suffer for their lack of ability to program.
HTML5? Whats that, a lighter bandwidth stream allowing for higher quality or slower connection, nah, can't have that we need to protect our stream that any flash down loader can already......um, what were we talking about?
Numerous other sites have content that end users have received free over the airwaves and have transcoded to commercial free legal downloadable episodes, of high quality, and did I mention they are free.
We are sorry, flash has crashed, please watch another minute of commercials to get back to where you were in the episode, its the least we can do.
Want to skip ahead? Let us show you commercials to make up for it!!
Is this ad relevant to you? No? Great we will now play it for the next two weeks!

Other Thoughts:

So with Hulu free you get to pay for your internet connection, and watch their ads to pay for the content and their profit.

With Hulu plus you get to pay for your internet connection, and watch their ads to pay for the content and their profit, and the extra is to watch older episodes that are free and commercial free elsewhere, but you don't have to use Google to find them, so there is that......

Much like paying for outdated cable where you pay for the service, and then watch the ads and have a limited selection of on demand, but wait....cable on demand is ad free too.........

I am not really sure why anyone pays for Hulu plus unless they don't know how to use the internet. They don't have a WMC snap in they support anymore, and their beta desktop app they made was buggy, with some hacking it together it can work but if you are that good you already know how to not use Hulu plus.

I have had and tried Hulu plus, and grew tired of watching ads for content I was already paying for, and the delivery I was paying for, only to not be able to use it on any internet and flash capable device without work.
