    So this is what Chase Carey is up to. Hopefully they find a way to increase their ad revenue so that they can keep it ad supported vs. a pay service. I've got quite a few nickel and dime services that I'm paying a monthly service fee for...VOIP, XM, Newsgroup, RapidShare, Netflix to name a few. It may be time to re-think all of these minor expenses and save $100/month. I certainly won't be adding any other pay services to my monthly budget.

    the only thing i really ever watch there is family guy, and only because i can load up hulu desktop in media center.


    but i can watch that @ fox.com also for free.


    I watched all of the arrested development episodes too.

    But there's so much free tv on the internet, I don't see a need in paying to use hulu. We mostly use the netflix streaming service and the major netflix websites. I watched jericho on CBS.com and my wife is a huge 'House' fan, and watches that @ fox.com.



    If I watched shows extensively there, it would be worth it to me.

    The only thing i can think of that would drive me to be willing to pay for it is if the networks stop allowing users to view their shows on their own websites for free. Which very well may happen to support hulu; it would be foolish to try and charge customers @ hulu if fox, abc, and nbc allow you to watch for free.

    No way I would pay.

    Hope they don't go through with it. I love watching old Sat Night Live clips.
