But what really makes Hulu stand out is their vast features that enhanced our experience from watching traditional TV, for one example you could cut the scenes into several clips and share them with email or embedded them into other websites just like YouTube. And like Google attraction's: simplicity in their web services, is another factor why Hulu can be so quickly popular. All you need is a web browser with Adobe Flash Player installed, no other apps installation is needed. Even with only web enabled media player, according to Hulu CEO Jason Kilar; you'll have plenty of media features and more to come. All thanks to his great techonology team, lead by former Microsoft engineer: Eric Feng. But without search capability to find the movies you want to watch, people will leave and get bored easily. Thanks to Hulu's big library collections and the simple user interface design, members will have plenty of good times watching streamed entertainment online. An important question regarding for how long Hulu will keep older archives, still remains unknown for now. I've tried to access Hulu, but it seems their slogan: "Anytime, Anywhere" doesn't apply to other countries beside USA. If anyone is able to play Hulu on their Windows Mobile or any handsets' OS, please inform us of the results; I guess for WinMob users should install Flash Lite first.
I can see how those stock holders & executives of SlingBox are feeling etchy on their seats these days, this mostly because Hulu is completely free! Hulu is relying their main revenue from ads, which we'll watch during or after the movies; it all depends on how the duration of the movie you're watching. If Hulu's concept really is successful and keep on improving; soon enough we'll be watching movies on our mobile phone's screen, everywhere anywhere.
