Yup, we've started using hulu.com a lot as well to see the shows that
were pulled from iTunes, and so far its the best implementation of
online video I've come across. Its free, but on the other hand its
annoying to be interrupted by commercials, and I can't watch them on
my iPhone. The problem is, for shows I don't really care about it
wouldn't matter, but we've cut our show watching to just one hour a
week, and for that hour every single commercial is &@(&# annoying.
One thing hulu.com and Joost haven't figured out is how to tailor
commercials for the audience. I wouldn't mind watching a photography-
related commercial before a show, for example, but they only put in
mass marketing crap for stuff there's no way I'm ever going to buy.
