Definitely not the proper way to apply that.Hulu Plus can be as polished as it wants to be. $10 per month for content where I still have to deal with ads is ridiculous. They want their cake and eat it too. Make it free and I'll deal with the ads. Charge me $10 a month and keep the ads away....but not both.
They can keep it.
I have had this happen on Netflix even - an episode or 2 not available for streaming on a disk. What i had read in some of the comments was that there were licensing issues with the MUSIC used.I subscribed last night. I'm a little annoyed that certain episodes of seasons are not available for viewing on the iPad even with a Hulu Plus subscription. Apparently, they are working on that.
That's another complaint too. Quality seems to very depending upon network and/or show. Some older shows like Ally McBeal look awful, well below even DVD quality.downloaded it... Tried it. hated it. I don't mind paying for something, but visual quality was the pits, ...
+1in contrast, the ABC app that churns out FREE shows works well. Much better than HULU. Wondering how they justify charging for material that is mostly free on my laptop. Netflix/ Roku seems to be a better bet for now. Also stream movies and shows via Air Video, which looks great quality wise, but the app has a few bugs and the stream seems to choke every now and then.
I've only watched a few shows so far and the quality is pretty good. The quality is really bad on my iPhone 4 on WiFi though. I have a retina display yet it seems lower than 480x320.That's another complaint too. Quality seems to very depending upon network and/or show.

It's not just "Hulu Plus on the iPad". When you subscribe to Hulu Plus, you get HD streams through Hulu.com, and access from your iPhone, iPad, PS3, and select Blu-Ray players.+1
For all of those dying to defend a double dipping Hulu Plus, it is ironic that ABC can deliver the goods for free, and at quite good quality at that. Sounds like Hulu is testing the marketplace to see what consumers are willing to pay, and its working on some of you. Not sure what the 'I cancelled my cable due to Hulu Plus on the Ipad" is all about, but surely its a want and not a need.
But now that I've canceled cable I watch the networks for free. All I needed was a crappy little antenna. I thought I would miss cable but after the first couple of weeks - no, nothing, nada.It's crazy how much we pay for cable, yet 90% of what we watch is on network TV anyway. Cable is mostly crap.
