    Hulu Plus

    Does anyone on here use Hulu Plus. With two young kids my wife and I almost never get to watch TV shows when they are actually on. With our cable company the upgrade to a DVR is almost 35 bucks a month and the wife has killed that idea. The shows we like to watch are all on Hulu but now they make you pay for Hulu Plus to get the whole episodes. It is only 7.95 a month and we were looking at going that route instead of a DVR.

    Anyone use it and have any feedback or have any other recommendations.

    Thanks

    Personally, I don't think it is worth it unless you want to watch older shows from the season. Hulu still holds the 5 most recent shows for free I believe.

    Re: Hulu Plus

    I am actually looking at a way to watch all my tv off of the internet. No satellite or anything, just finding shows on my computer and sending them to the TV. Does anybody have an opinion on how to do that?

    Depends on what you watch. An HDMI cord from the computer to TV would be part of it. Or Apple TV or a similar device. After that it's a matter of finding the show on the internet whether it be from NBC, CBS, TBS, Hulu or iTunes.

    Re: Hulu Plus

    I have contemplated getting rid of my digital cable this spring when Hulu Plus becomes available on Xbox Live. I would have access to ESPN, Hulu, Netflix, and Zune all through the Xbox.

    It would be awesome if the options that the likes of Xbox are providing eventually lead to a la carte cable.

    Agreed that would be awesome. I was told by the guy that installed the digital cable in our new house that a la carte tv isn't all that far off and he thought maybe as soon as the next couple of years. I can't wait for that day. We only watch maybe 15-20 channels of the 200 some that we have.

    What kind of resolution and bitrate are you going to get from streaming ESPN and Hulu Plus? Unless they are streaming a decent bitrate, it will look bad on your 50" TV. I think 1600 kbps is the highest bitrate that ESPN3 is streaming, and that doesn't look good on a big TV (at least it doesn't where I've seen it). Will you get 5.1 sound?

    I think Netflix is streaming HD quality. Do you get the 5.1 sound when streaming Netflix?

    I just recently moved my pc closer to my TV and now have an HDMI running to it. Anything I can watch on my pc I can now watch on my TV. As someone else stated, Hulu has like the five most recent episodes of most everything but Hulu plus is only like $8/mo and they claim it has a much wider selection, even shows that aren't on anymore. And you don't even need a pc for that anymore as you can access it through a lot of blu-ray players.

    Re: Hulu Plus

    Since you guys seems to actually be interested in this. I was looking around and found this new device. I think it is what I would go with. It basically wirelessly sends what is on your PC to your TV.

    Veebeam US : If it plays on your PC, it can play on your TV.

    Cnet did a review on it, and it looks good for what I need.

    Same concept as Apple TV Apple - Apple TV - Rent HD movies and TV shows, stream Netflix, and more

    Re: Hulu Plus

    Hulu.com has some, albeit terrible, movie options.

    Does Hulu Plus have some more mainstream movie titles to choose from?
