Hulu Company Review
Hulu’s transformation from a free service for watching TV shows has transformed into a real player in the streaming world. With shows from major networks like NBC, FOX, and ABC available on demand and popular movies, Hulu offers one of the best streaming services around.
Any TV buff will be impressed with Hulu’s library with access to many popular titles. While Hulu has the entire collection of only a few shows, it does have the exclusive rights to shows like Family Guy. Hulu might not have all of the movies of Netflix and Amazon Prime and certainly not much original content, but it certainly makes up for it with the combination of TV shows and movies they offer.
Not many services offer complete series of TV shows like Hulu – which is why many have made the switch. Lovers of foreign films and anime will appreciate Hulu’s packed library of awesome titles. Watch from a phone, TV, or computer with Hulu’s mobile app and compatible devices so you’re never behind on your favorite shows.
An “ad-free” experience with ads is understandably frustrating, but to Hulu’s credit, they do have a disclaimer before you buy. Hulu’s sub-par HD quality collection can be a deal breaker for some, especially with the rising bar for TV and computer quality. Competitors like Netflix have much better search and recommendation features.
Hulu Bottom Line
Hulu offers the best service for getting access to TV shows – even if the commercials reminiscent of regular network TV still linger. TV buffs, anime fans, and lovers of foreign film will appreciate the collection that makes quite the case for cutting the cord.
How It Works
After reviewing their website, sign up for 1 month free to check out some of your favorite shows and movies. Pick from no commercials or limited commercials as your base plan. There is a price difference to be aware of. Then use your Facebook account to connect or sign up with just your email, password, and name. Once logged in, you will add your billing info and are instantly set to begin streaming your favorites.
Plans & Pricing
Paid subscribers are used to an ad-free experience in streaming services, so it might be frustrating to pay $7.99 and still see ads. An extra $4 gets a mostly free ad experience, but there are still some ads with certain content, but $11.99 per month is certainly a deal.
Hulu isn’t completely intuitive and the search function leaves something to be desired, but the overall viewing experience is still better than some competitors. If you can overlook the occasional ad in the premium service, Hulu has a lot to offer. With cross-platform viewing options, Hulu is a solid alternative for watching your favorite shows on-the-go.
They offer chat, phone and community support options all from their contact page.

Hulu is my favorite to watch reruns and make sure I can view anything I missed right away.

Hulu is the best streaming service, the only drawback is there is nothing you can download, but the live streaming is awesome.
