I decided to give Hulu Plus a try with their one week free. After just 2 evenings, I was getting fed up with the commercials they put into every TV show even if its BBC which does not even have commercials.

BBC in the UK doesn't, because of the TV license fee. BBC Worldwide is different.

I don't mind them because they're short, however, I do mind the repetitiveness of them. I was watching last season of Parenthood the other day, and I was so sick of the iPad vs Surface ad.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Glad this thread started.  I've been paying for it for...I dunno, but I never use it.  I just cancelled it.

I pay for the service for part of the year.  I like CW shows but our local CW station is on a low-power, bit-starved platform and totally unwatcheable even on an SD tv screen.

 

A side benefit is to get to see some other shows that I might not have known existed.  Some really good, some really bad.  Kind of like TV in general!  :)
