Hulu is moving to an all-subscription model, eliminating the ad-supported service that has let users watch thousands of TV episodes in the nine years since it first launched.
 
At the same time, Hulu has expanded its distribution deal with Yahoo, which is launching Yahoo View, a new ad-supported TV-streaming site with the five most recent episodes of shows from ABC, NBC and Fox — eight days after original air date — as well as other network shows, day-after clips, and full seasons of anime and Korean drama series. The free Hulu service will be phased out over the next few weeks.
 
 
The moves come less than a week after Time Warner announced that it is paying $583 million to take a 10% stake in Hulu, joining existing owners Disney, 21st Century Fox and Comcast.
 
“For the past couple years, we’ve been focused on building a subscription service that provides the deepest, most personalized content experience possible to our viewers,” Hulu senior VP and head of experience Ben Smith said in a statement. “As we have continued to enhance that offering with new originals, exclusive acquisitions, and movies, the free service became very limited and no longer aligned with the Hulu experience or content strategy.”
 
Hulu is focusing on subscriptions as it looks to ratchet up its competition with Netflix and Amazon Prime, its two key SVOD rivals. Hulu offers two subscription plans: $7.99 per month with commercials, and $11.99 per month without any ads.
 
 

 

 

Quite frankly, Fuck that... I'll pass on Hulu forever, mostly thanks to their 480p video and 4k ads.

Sadly the future is looking bad for streaming services from where I sit. CBS, ABC, and CW now have streaming services and some of them are pulling shows from Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu to try and boost their numbers. When you have 40 streaming services for $10 each you are right back to fucking cable.

At least Cable you can pay for specific packages and have everything in one place.

 

Can you imagine the future of needing to remember which app has which show? You'll spend just as much time flipping through your apps to find the show as you will to actually watch the show. :panda:

My favorite about that is an NBC study found that fans won't watch a show that has been on TV for a while unless they can see it from the beginning. They also found people aren't starting new shows because they don't want a one season or half season flop to take up their time and that season cliffhangers are horrible because more than half the time you don't get a real finish as they are canceled. NBC's response... well we can't fix that. 

 

The research says 75 percent of viewers surveyed say they’d watch more primetime broadcast TV if networks made it easier to catch up to the current season by making all past episodes available online or on demand. And 72 percent of the survey said they were likely to start watching a returning TV series in the fall on broadcast if they have access to all past episodes. Well, those are sort of the same points, but that’s what these PowerPoint presentations are like. Just be thankful we’re not detailing all of NBC’s research about slowing DVR penetration rates as well.  
 
“This is what people want,” Wurtzel says of the new data showing people want to watch stories in a coherent narrative order.

All of these a la carte services and remembering which shows are on which app is so frustrating. You guys hit the nail on the head.

There's going to be real money in an ad-based phone app that you type in a show or movie name and it tells you what app has it just to save people that time.  Somebody is going to make a billion dollars and I'm going to kick myself for not developing something like that.

This is America, draw up some markup images and submit that shit to the Patent office asap, then you can be a patent troll and say bitch pay up.

So fucking true. I'm so hesitant to start a show because so many of my favorites have been canceled on cliff hangers. <_<
