The ads to me is salt on the wounds.
Hulu Plus is an odd angle to use as argument for me, but... as an example...
Hulu Plus allows me to have a dvr like service without paying cablevision/time warner in nyc for the extra dvr box.
Tonights community will be available on hulu.com tomorrow for free and on devices for a fee.
(aha so you are willing to pay for services like xblg)
no.. i'm not. I'm not saving any money by subscribing to xblg which gives me nothing.
With hulu plus i can cut back on cable services, save $30 dollars on cable by cutting out dvr and other channel packages for $7.99.
Which I can access on pc for free or on psn for free or ................................. on xbl for $4 a month extra.
For all the apple hate, outside of hardware, apple does not have a pay wall.
The paywall is the issue.. all the hate for cable to move to online and MS is helping move cable like lifestyle and fees to online. Online is starting to feel like what cable services are like.
Not so much thanks to MS but thanks to MS supporters. And I can't tell all the time if they are truly in love with the service that is new to them or if they support it in hate of the competition.
