Perhaps, if you had a link of some sort to share with us...!
(It's the NBC-Universal/News Corp. joint venture what aims to put YouTube out of business by providing "good" content - well, content that originally aired on NBC/FOX networks, at least. Many viewers, no revenue. www.hulu.com)
Ive watched all of season 3 of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia on hulu so far. They have a great selection with decent quality. I'm sure I'd have watched more stuff on it too if I hadn't already seen it on other, shadier sites.
Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her. Harry: That's a special feeling.
Originally posted by PeterStorkI've been loving the Hulu beta for a couple months now, but if Warner Bros. is legit jumping on board then they need to give me my West Wing fix because those DVD boxsets are too. damn. much.
I agree. I stopped watching it a little after Aaron Sorkin quit - mostly because the forced impression of his writing style was just too grating to handle. But I heard it got really good again at the end, and, oddly enough, the presidential candidates played by Alan Alda and Jimmy Smits were supposed based on John McCain and Barack Obama respectively.
Originally posted by ZeruelWow, I forgot that the Stevens Carell and Colbert were on it. Good times.
Not only that, but they were both writers, along with Louis C.K., Dave Chappelle, Robert Smigel and Charlie Fucking Kaufman. Seriously, that's about as solid of a pedigree as you can get.

There is some serious CRAP going on here.
Did you know that we, in Canada, are not granted access to WWE Heat on WWE.com? Nor, to see Big and Rich's videos on Youtube?
Or this brilliant website?
What the hell is wrong with this?
Other rights holders possess Canadian (and other foreign) rights to the programs and allowing access to Hulu would infringe on those, opening up eight billion lawsuits. Apparently filtering rights by program by IP location is too tough for them.

Feh, that explains it. A dang shame too cos there's some plenty cool stuff on there. I fear the sorts of money they'd need to reach agreement with Sky for a lot of those shows are probably going to make streaming for a UK audience unlikely for the forseeable.
I admire their concept/business model way too much to try and engineer any sort of 'grey area' work round though.
I can't imagine that you could even do decent Looney Tunes now. You'd have bitching about ethnic sterotypes, you'd have bitching about homophobia when Bugs dresses like a woman, you'd have bitching about violence when Elmer shoots Daffey's beak off.
