Netflix and Hulu Plus, Which One Do Ya Prefer?


well here it is, I currently have Netflix, I love that they still send me my dvd's/bluerays over the mail and still have a selevtion of streaming movies/tv shows to pick from (from 6 different devices per account), now that Hulu Plus is out, I needs to ask a question which one do you prefer as Hulu Plus offers different type of programing.

I use neither, I have Comcast for my TV viewing preferences so I see no reason to pay out more money I can't afford.

Hulu Plus has one of my biggest pet peeves: Paying a subscription for a premium service and still getting ads. Plus Netflix is going to be able to stream movies without the need for the disk later on this year, so I would most definitely go with Netflix.

I Have had netflix for a while and was disappointed that you need to use a disc with the PS3...so I tried Hulu when the app was made available, after all, I heard they had a lot more recent TV sdhows and I don't have cable. I have been sorely disappointed with their service, what with all the commercials and not much that I want to watch...and every anime series is subbed- not dubbed, which wouldn't be a problem but I have ended up mostly using Hulu on my PC and I like to watch shows while I browse the 'net so its a no go. All in all I am much happier with netflix, especially since they are going disc free sometime hopefully soon. My advice would be a' not to bother if you already have cable b. get netflix instead. Just my opinion though, I'm sure there are some people who are happy with Hulu. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to cancel my Hulu acct. while its on my mind.

There are a few networks I am waiting for before I make any kind of switch to Hulu.  Namely BBC/BBCA (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Being Human, Top Gear) and Discovery Networks (Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs).

 

Currently between Netflix and AT&T Uverse, my TV viewing needs are set.  As for Starz Networks, most of the movies available on Starz are available through Netflix for streaming (though they don't currently support HD).
