Have you tried out Hulu? If not, what's holding you back?

Online video site Hulu is becoming more popular due to word of mouth, Google, and one unexpected competing video service, an online research firm discovered.   The site crawled into 84th place among television web sites and is ranked in 33rd position among multimedia web sites. 

The top source of traffic for is from Google, with YouTube second in directing traffic to the site.  Hulu videos can also be found on MySpace, AOL, Yahoo, Microsoft MSN and Fancast, and even more websites may be added.

A recent deal between Viacom and Hulu will bring Comedy Central's The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report to the popular online video viewing service.  Full-length episodes of both shows can now be found through the service.

PBS also has come to terms with Hulu, and will offer Nova, Wired Science, Scientific American Frontiers and Carrier, with 30-second commercials to be shown before each episode.

Hulu now has more than 70 content partners helping provide online content, including Fox, MGM, NBC Universal, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros. and others.  The site officially launched in March with $100 million in venture capitalist funds and 40 content partners.

I've been using the site since it was in beta, and have been pleased with the growing catalog of content available to viewers.  Adding The Daily Show and The Colbert Report will hopefully help the site gain a few more viewers.

As long as the advertising remains rather unobtrusive for viewers, I can't imagine why NBC, Universal and Fox cannot get more people to begin watching content on Hulu.  Maybe it's finally time for them to launch a real advertising blitz to get some attention for the site?

Expect the 700+ TV episode and full-length movie catalog to continue to grow as more content partners are added.

No, people will just pay the extra fees.

Oh, yes! Just TACK ON those extra fees! Yes, sir! Just charge me up the yin-yang to use the internet! Gas heading up to $6 a gallon, probably going to hit $15 in the near future. American dollar dropping like a ROCK! A depression that will make the Great Depression in the 1920's look like a CAKEWALK! WAIT.. Now for the rest of my response, I bet SOME people who read it will be up-to-speed and agree. Others will dismiss it as "conspiracy THEORY" even though it IS ADMITTED AND WILL happen without STRONG opposition! Don't believe me! WATCH THE YOUTUBE video and do the research!

Now I NEVER cover "THEORY" this is all fact, Ladies and Gents, JUST YOU WATCH! Here comes The Internet 2! A model of Chinese Style Dictatorship Censorship and "government approved" websites (ALL must be approved! Free Speech: GONE! Read on!!

ISP's have resolved to restrict the Internet to a TV-like subscription model where users will be forced to pay to visit selected corporate websites by 2012, while others will be blocked , according to a leaked report. Despite some people dismissing the story as a hoax , the wider plan to kill the traditional Internet and replace it with a regulated and controlled Internet 2 is manifestly provable .

"Bell Canada and TELUS (formerly owned by Verizon) employees officially confirm that by 2012 ISP's all over the globe will reduce Internet access to a TV-like subscription model , only offering access to a small standard amount of commercial sites and require extra fees for every other site you visit . These 'other' sites would then lose all their exposure and eventually shut down, resulting in what could be seen as the end of the Internet," warns a report that has spread like wildfire across the web over the last few days.

The article, which is accompanied by a You Tube clip, states that Time Magazine writer "Dylan Pattyn" has confirmed the information and is about to release a story - and that the move to effectively shut down the web could come as soon as 2010.

I get my REAL news at - where do you get yours? FOX? CNN? Whats their hot-topic? Anna Nicole Smith and Britney Spears? Time for everyone to wake up and see the real danger that lies ahead.
