Whats the point in Directv adding Hulu videos to its Watch Directv site?

    Xfinity.com and dishanywhere.com have done this for a while and now even Directv has added them. To me it's pointless when you can just watch them on the hulu site and will confuse some people making them think these videos are on the actual Directv service. Now if Directv put these videos on the actual boxes that would be a different story.

    It would be nice to have Hulu on the receivers. As far as the online "integration" it seems to be the best way for the satellite companies to make the content available in one place for their customers. If I find a Hulu show through the satellite provider's website I'll keep using their website. If I am forced to go look elsewhere (for example, directly on Hulu) it makes the satellite provider's site worth less. It is in their best interest to integrate.
