"...ad-supported premium subscription, Hulu Plus service will cost $9.99 per month..."
what the hell? so hulu gets money from companies to put their ads in the video steams that people watch. and hulu gets money from the consumers by making them pay to watch the commercials. it looks like hulu is the only one to get anything out of this deal.
i know the supposed reason for the charge to consumers is for hd content and rights paid for permission to show movies and videos. however, what i access on hulu now is already ad supported, so why would i want to pay to see the same ads?
i'm sure that if hulu took the ads out of the paid premium plan, they would get more users. personally i would never use any online service for which i have to pay (except for service to the internet from my isp).
