Sorry but you're either naive or sound like a shill for Hulu. You realize that Hulu is Comcast, Time Warner, Disney, Fox, and NBC all rolled up into one? Of course they want to keep commercials in. They have no incentive to keep them out because there's folks willing to pay for a service that includes commercials...just like cable. Bottom line...how is Hulu any different than cable?
I might, or I might just be happy with the product and willing to pay for it. If you go back far enough in my comment history I'm sure you'll think I'm a shill for TiVo as well because it allows me to timeshift and 30 second skip through commercials.
Bottom line...hulu is different from cable in many ways.
1: You can watch what you want when you want instead of on the networks schedule.
2: It's cheaper by a factor of 10 ($12 instead of $120).
3: Has *WAY* fewer commercials with the No-Commercials plan
4: Doesn't have sports
I find I need to mix Hulu Plus No Commercials and Netflix to get the majority of what I want to watch. I'm very likely going to add in Youtube Red for another $5/month.
I've wanted commercial free television for a long time. Now that companies are charging an affordable rate for an adequate service, I'm willing to pay for it. I get that others don't want to, or think that paying for the cheapest plan should get them all the benefits. That's not how the world works. I vote for services with my wallet, and in doing so I'm saving at least $65/month on television.
Does that make me a shill? Definition is: an accomplice of a hawker, gambler, or swindler who acts as an enthusiastic customer to entice or encourage others. I'm not an accomplice or affiliated with Netflix, Hulu, Tivo or Youtube, just a happy customer of all. (Although my TiVo is currently powered down to not having cable).
