    I just received one. It says it is for a preview but they want my bank info. Has anybody tried it yet? What do you think about it?

    I haven't received one yet, but I would be suspicious of any email that leads to somewhere requesting bank information. Make sure it is www.hulu.com and not a phishing site.

    don't enter your bank details unless you want to see money disappear really fast... my idiot mother nearly fell for this when she received a HM Customs and Revenue Tax Rebate that required all her bank details and passwords on a site that didn't even have a Domain Name, just an IP Address... and i thought Hulu was free for you Americans?

    If it's for the app then it is probably legit

    I got the e-mail for an invite.

    That is what it should look like. Then it sends you to this:

    Edit: Wow those pictures came out smaller than they should have been, but you should be able to get an idea of what I mean, lol

    Yep, that's it. The next page asks for name, address, phone, bank info.

    By "preview," Hulu means that it is giving you the opportunity to see what it's like to pay for their service before anyone else. This is not a free trial; if you want to "preview" Hulu Plus, then you need to sign up with a credit card so they can charge you.

    You'd think a "preview" would be free, wouldn't you? Any app. Lite is free, am I missing something?

    When I follow the link and sign in this is what it shows me next, it asks for a credit card, not my bank info...

    edit: got the uploading problem fixed, photobucket kept scaling down, imageshack is better, lol.

    the app won't do any good unless you have the paid subscription/preview subscription

    I got the email to but I don't know if I want to get into that service anymore, do you think there's a time limit as to when you can get subscribed to the service?

    I too got an invite for the preview and signed up. Its great. I love getting full seasons of my favorite shows on both my iphone and iPad. For $10/month I highly recommend it. Quality of shows looks great on my iPhone, iPad, and desktop PC.
