This arrival of this new service is all thanks to NBC universal and News Corp. The cool thing about hulu is the definitely the quality and timeliness of the video content available. Whilst most of us have become used to the grainy, segmented uploads of TV shows and content on youtube, it is nice to see the big players in TV finally coming to the party and giving users what we always wanted- TV on demand online.
Unfortunately, the content on hulu is currently only available to members residing in the USA.....so I am still stuck with TVNZ's wannabe version of TV on demand online. The TVNZ on demand site sorta pisses me off as it really only contains a limited snapshot of certain TVNZ content. When it first launched I expected to be able to view any content that TVNZ had in their content database, dating back to whenever they started. Now that would be true on-demand television!
What do you guys think of your local TV networks strategies to make their content available online?
