    Just wondering which of these apps you have chosen over the other one, and why. I'm sure Netflix is better for movies, but what about TV shows?

    I do not have a subscription to Hulu Plus so I could be completely wrong... I believe Hulu gives you access to shows in their current season, while Netflix only has access to past seasons.

    As for movies, I don't think there's any comparison that can be made.

    I'm curious to know more information as well.

    I use both regularly, for the reasons pointed out by the poster above.

    Netflix is getting better for TV Shows, but the only show that I know of that it has the current season of is SNL (it gets added the Monday after it airs).

    Hulu+ gives you access (or so they say) to all seasons including the new...BUT some content is only available on PC and not available on the iPad App.

    They both should have free trials, I highly suggest trying both out and keeping whatever you end up using more.

    I've only had Hulu for a few days, but so far I really like it! Yesterday I watched Family Guy and a recent episode of The Tonight Show.

    I have both and use both. To me, Netflix has great movies and TV show seasons

    Hulu has current shows and other TV shows that I want

    Both are worth it, imo

    I really like the Netflix app. It's my second most used 3rd party application after Dropbox.
