Hang on, Hulu ad-free still has ads?!

Hang on, Hulu ad-free still has ads?!

Hulu's new "No Commercials" option might not be as "ad-free" as you may have originally suspected. While the option - revealed by the company earlier this week - is suggested to be made for those users that'd been wishing for a video experience completely devoid of advertisements, the fine print doesn't exactly agree with the large print. Not every show has "obtained the rights to stream commercial free" at this time - therefor not every show will be commercial free - some will still have a few before-and-after ads in play.

Hulu announces new ad-free streaming tier

It looks like the rumor from July has turned out to be true: Hulu has just launched a new tier to its subscription streaming service, giving viewers the option of doing without ads altogether. The new tier will cost an additional $4 per month, which is a pretty fair deal; viewers can stay with the existing $8 per month subscription and see occasional commercial breaks, or pay $12 per month for no ads.

Hulu grabs Seth Rogen’s ‘Future Man’ comedy

Hulu has ordered a 30 minute pilot episode for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s ‘Future Man’ comedy, it has been announced. The comedy is said to follow the likes of a janitor who cleans up during the day, and who plays as a world-ranked gamer at night. Neither of those are central to the storyline, however. Rather, visitors said to come from the future advise the janitor that he is the only hope for humanity — humans will become extinct if the janitor doesn’t do something to stop the invasion of some unspecified “super race”.

Hulu saves you from yourself, says no to binge watching

Hulu saves you from yourself, says no to binge watching

Netflix, as any subscriber knows, is all about entertainment gluttony (not that it explicitly encourages such behavior). The video streaming service elects to drop full seasons at once, and report after report indicates what users already know: viewers, when given a full season in a single moment, will largely watch it all in binging sessions, consuming episode after episode until the full season has been completed in a mere weekend or so. Hulu frowns upon this consumption habit and recently revealed it will not be supporting it.

Hulu said to be developing pricier tier with no ads

If you're a fan of Hulu's subscription service, but hate the fact that you are still forced to watch advertisements even when paying $7.99 a month for the existing premium tier (formerly known as "Plus"), good news may be on the way. As long as you don't mind paying a little more, that is. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Hulu is looking into offering a more expensive tier that would have no ads whatsoever.

Chicago adds ‘amusement tax’ to services like Netflix and Hulu

Chicago is about to become a little less welcoming to cord cutters, with the city authorizing an 'amusement tax' on online streaming services like Netflix and Pandora. Under this, subscribers are going to be paying a 9-percent tax on their various cloud-based streaming entertainment services, as well as for the 'privilege' of playing games online. This is the expansion of the existing amusement tax which was previously applied to things like buying concert tickets, and it will apply to businesses as well.
