Re: Hulu Plus -- News and Notable New additions

It was fun while it lasted but today I cancelled my Hulu subscription. My VPN is no longer in business and is no longer working. It kinds of works out since I'm moving away and need to figure out another VPN service to use in the future.

I'll resubscribe again in the near future...

Re: Hulu Plus -- News and Notable New additions

CW is planning to release new apps for Roku, ATV, FireTV, and Chromecast before the fall season starts. So the shows will all be available there (5 latest episodes).
Any word on what the new Chromecast service will be called? Will they make you wait a week before they put up the newest episodes? I'm hoping it'll at least be free, not like the annoying CBS one. I don' think the regular CW app is Chromecast compatible. This is very odd, I guess CBS and WB have enough clout to fly solo, but I'm in full agreement that this will hit Hulu hard. Hopefully CW will add the Seed app as well as this one for Smart TVs too, and soon.

Hopefully they'll look to another niche label. Can't be MOC because they're in the U.S., maybe Shout or Arrow? I can hope, I suppose.

This was a sad inevitability when streaming started to become the main method of delivery. It was bound to fragment like this. Disappointing and frustrating, but hardly surprising.

I'm guessing it has a lot to do with Sony's deal with Netflix to carry the full seasons after it airs.

The NBC app and website still has episodes the day after it airs.

Here it is 10:15 and I'm still waiting for the season finale of Ray Donovan to appear. Dumping Hulu once I do watch it. This is why cable still wins.

I'm not very happy with Hulu apparently getting rid of all the CW shows. In fact, I'm pissed.

It wasn't Hulu's fault. The deal expired after last season and they wanted to keep their content. However, The CW opted to go with a more lucrative deal with Netflix for a 1 season delay on their shows. Hulu also wanted to keep the entire season, but The CW was only willing to give the last 5 episodes that aired.

The CW's content is available on their new app, however it's only the last 5 episodes and ad supported.

Re: Hulu Plus -- News and Notable New additions

Hulu Plus is now the only Hulu, and it's now $6/month with ads (down from $8).

Commercial-Free is double that at $12.

Since Hulu is my most used streaming service, I can't complain.

eBay apparently cracked down on the codes and got rid of all of them. Guessing Hulu caught on to all the gift subscriptions being redeemed.

I should probably watch all the Criterion movies I added to my queue, when I first subscribed to Hulu a long time ago. Probably.

Looks like the $5.99 a month is for new customers only and its for one full year - then you pay $7.99 a month.

Crud, would have been nice to save a couple of bucks a month - oh well $7.99 a month-limited commercials is still a deal.

Hulu Live TV streaming service to launch in 2017

https://techcrunch.com/2016/11/01/hu...abc-espn-more/

Hulu said today it has partnered with Disney and 21st Century Fox for its upcoming live TV streaming service, launching next year. The deals involve Fox’s news, entertainment, sports, and other properties, along with Disney’s portfolio of networks from is ABC Television Group and ESPN, among other things. In total, the two agreements will bring more than 35 TV networks to Hulu’s live TV service.

What this means for consumers who are considering cutting the cord with pay TV is that they’ll gain access to two of the top broadcast networks, Fox and ABC, on Hulu’s new streaming platform.

In terms of sports, the two deals will include Fox Sports networks (Fox Sports 1 and 2), BTN, ESPN networks, including ESPN1, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, ESPN-SEC, and Fox’s regional sports networks in dozens of markets. Meanwhile, other popular cable TV channels will also be included, like Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior, Fox News, Fox Business, Freeform, FX, FXX, FXM, National Geographic and Nat Geo Wild.

The addition of ESPN is especially notable, in light of the competitive landscape, which today includes Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and AT&T’s forthcoming DirecTV Now service, for example. In fact, Sling TV made headway with a number of cord cutters when it first debuted as being the only way to access ESPN’s content without a subscription to a cable or satellite TV service. That has changed over time, however, as PlayStation Vue added the network back in March of this year. And DirecTV Now has also confirmed that Disney channels, ESPN and ABC will be a part of its lineup when it launches.

The announcement comes on top of earlier news from Hulu that it had also signed agreements with Time Warner for live and on-demand streaming of its networks, including TNT, TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, truTV, Boomerang, and Turner Classic Movies.

The bigger picture here is that it doesn’t appear that these live TV streaming rivals will end up competing in terms of content and channel lineups – they’ll be trying to woo consumers based on other factors, like pricing, number of concurrent streams, multi-platform support and overall user experience. While AT&T’s DirecTV Now may have the edge in terms of tying its service to AT&T’s cellular network, offering things like streams that don’t count towards data usage, for example, where Hulu may have an edge is the user interface.

Though not as well-designed as Netflix, nor anywhere near as good at recommendations, Hulu’s interface is at least easy to navigate and use. The same cannot be said for Sling TV, however, despite upgrades. And it’s unclear how DirecTV’s service will stand up, in comparison.

Hulu also has invested in some exclusive content, like The Mindy Project, The Path, 11.22.63, Difficult People, and its Golden Globe-nominated series, Casual, which could give it the edge, as well.

No specifics on pricing yet, but it's supposedly going to be priced at around $40/month for the basic service.

However, there is no deals yet for CBS and NBC programming. This service needs NBC programming because it also covers SyFy, USA, Bravo in addition to the OTA network. And I'm guessing CBS may not be willing to make a deal because of their streaming service. But, we'll see.

So now we have Playstation Vue, Sling TV, Google Unplugged, Directv Now and then this competing for Live TV streaming services.

The options are just insane. And like Sling TV, I'm sure Hulu will have a vast assortment of premium channel add-ons, which will add more to your monthly cost. I'm curious if the market can support all these services.

I don't think those cord cutters will ever get true a la carte TV. Everything here is bundled together and this is pretty damn close to a cable subscription, especially if you choose to add more content.

And I'm curious if this service from Hulu will have a DVR/Time shifting option as well. It's going to be hard to sell this and essentially force people to watch only live TV with commercials.

I think Directv Now has an early advantage with technology and probably being able to acquire content.

Re: Hulu Live TV streaming service to launch in 2017

Here's another excerpt from a different story:

http://www.theverge.com/2016/11/1/13...net-tv-service

That still leaves out some big names, including CBS and NBC. But Comcast — the owner of NBC — is a major investor in Hulu, which makes a deal there seem likely. You can look at the lineup of services like PlayStation Vue and Sling to see what other channels are willing to make the jump to online distribution. If they’re on those lists, chances are it’s only a matter of time before Hulu gets a deal, too.

Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins is already promising “additional partners to come.” There’s still no specific timing on when Hulu hopes to launch the service, beyond at some point next year.

With so much competition, it will be harder to decide for the average consumer and just cut the cord and not sign up with any of the services.

Hulu dropping The Cosby show and other Carsey-Werner productions: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/liv...ng-hulu-943433

Joining The Cosby Show and also leaving Hulu on Nov. 7 are a few other fellow Carsey Werner titles: Damon, 3rd Rock From the Sun, Grounded for Life, Normal, Ohio, That '80s Show, The Tracy Morgan Show and Whoopi. Meanwhile, other Carsey Werner shows that quietly left Hulu in September are A Different World, Cosby, Cybill and Grace Under Fire.

Insiders stress that the decision to let the Carsey Werner pact expire had nothing to do with Cosby's personal problems; the streaming service still has a number of other nostalgic series including Cheers, Wings, Frasier, Seinfeld, My So-Called Life, Saved By the Bell and Taxi.

The move leaves The Cosby Show without a linear network to air repeats and no VOD home; Amazon, however, still sells episodes for $1.99 a shot.
