    Hulu Plus charges for a subscription AND is ad supported. Pick one. Oh, and if you pick ads, I'll be getting my content elsewhere - ads are just a non starter for me.

    I'd be more interested in an Amazon Video On Demand app than Hulu, but VoD isn't as good as Netflix anyway. It's just interesting because I already have a Prime Membership, so it would be at least partially free for me.

    I think that the wait was due to the fact that Hulu was in talks to sell to Google. Since that plan fell through we'll hopefully get the Hulu update for the Apple TV by the end of the month.

    I watch Hulu+ on my xbox.

    I would love to see Hulu also available on the ATV.

    It sucks - but can you blame the TV industry on this? They make you pay out your ass for cable now and make you sit through 17 minutes of commercials for every 60 minutes of TV.

    Same goes for magazines. You paid money for the magazine, yet it's still 60% advertisements.

    It sucks - but it is what it is.

    Which is why I don't reward Hulu's behavior by paying them. I use 80% Netflix, 15% Youtube, and 5% iTunes for my streaming content.

    Hulu has some problems to work out.

    Like why am I paying money for Hulu+, yet I can't watch all of the free Hulu content on my TV?

    The more content providers available on the ATV, the better. I would love to see Amazon available as well.

    Choice is good thing.
