If you are tired of paying for cable, then check out this website review!
When Website Review went to www.hulu.com we were pleasantly surprised. This site has movies and television shows from many popular channels, all available to view for free. With standard Hulu the last five episodes of many shows are free to watch on your computer, but for HuluPlus, the viewer has the ability to watch on a PC, TV, mobile phone, or a tablet. There is limited viewing until you set up an account, which is free and takes only seconds. The HuluPlus service currently costs $7.99 a month.
The main page of this site has a rotating screen on top with images of different things available to watch. On the top menu are Browse, Most Popular, Recently Added, Spotlight, and Recommendations. The Browse category is broken down in to TV Shows, Movies, Trailers, By Genre, Playlists, and Coming Soon.
The bottom half of the site has pictures of things you may want to watch and listings of Popular Shows and Popular Movies. The bottom of the page has recommendations from Hulu. Overall, Website Review likes how the main landing page looks. It’s not too busy or cluttered, and has a clean, fresh feel to it.
Under the Spotlight category, Website Review found Hulu’s blog. Although written by different authors, many of the blogs are laugh out loud funny. They cover celebrities, TV shows, music, movies, and all things relating to Hulu. From the blog page there are links on the right to connect to Hulu through social networking. There are also RSS Feeds, which include Recently Added Shows and Movies as well as Most Popular Videos of the day. If you go to the Most Popular Videos you can browse them and add them to your queue.
Website Review found one drawback to this site. During the show or movie you’re watching, there are breaks for commercials (even for HuluPlus). The main difference is that unlike TV, there is a timer telling you how long until the commercials are over. The commercials are not as long as on TV and it is nice to know how long you have until what you’re watching starts again. But if you need a longer break, you can always hit the pause button.
Website Review is glad we found www.hulu.com. It’s a great place to see any shows you’ve recently missed, or if you’re looking for complete seasons, the pricing seems very reasonable.
