Turns out, 88% of the shows available on hulu Plus are available on the free version. Guess it’s not so great after all. I received my hulu Plus preview the other day but was disappointed to learn it was ad-supported and still cost the monthly fee. Some preview. [via /Film]
There have been rumors since late last year that hulu was going to roll out a paid version of their amazing TV-killing site. It was supposed to happening at the beginning of 2010, but content has continued to be free since then. Now it looks as if they’ve finallized their plans with hulu Plus. From what I gather, this will be a service in addition to their free content. By paying the monthly fee, you’ll be albe to watch hulu using your TV, iPad, and iPhone. It’s not clear how the TV aspect would work except that a number of select televisions and Blu-ray players will be able to stream the content. Not sure how those who don’t own these devices would access it. But for me, the iPhone and iPad versions (which streams hulu on Wi-fi and 3G) are where it’s at. With hulu on Apple devices, the sting of no Flash is somewhat alleviated.

This is my first post in the month of June. It’s 61 degrees here in New York City. Better than 40 I suppose, but hardly summer weather. Tonight is also the first episode of Conan hosting The Tonight Show. I’ll be watching it tomorrow on Hulu with the rest of you. And for LOST fans, check this out. There’s a massive LOST rewatch extravaganza going on that will start tonight and go up until the premier of Season 6 (the FINAL season) in January 2010. All these fansites will be throwing in their 2 cents (there’s no ‘cents’ icon on the keyboard!?) along the way and you’ll get the joy of knowing that other nerds around the world are rewatching LOST with you.
Anywho, happy June.
By now, most of ya’ll probably know that Wolverine was disappointing. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t great. And even though Watchmen was pretty fantastic, it too didn’t quite live up to our (my) expectations. On the other hand, Push, Coraline, and Fast & Furious were much better than I anticipated. And with several more big flicks from my bone picks still on the horizon, 2009 isn’t out of the movie game yet. Well, here’s a few more that promise to be…um, interesting. Check ’em out after the jump.
