HULU: A Popular US Based Steaming Service
Do you tend to miss your favourite TV shows often? Do you want a legal website that can aid you in catching up? If yes then Hulu might just be the thing for you. This website provides its users with videos of their favourite dramas and movies. This site was launched in August 2007 and has become quite popular since then. However similar to everything else it has some pros and cons and these are mentioned in the paragraphs below.
This website allows people to be amused by their favourite shows free. What more can a person ask for? It is a legal, free service being provided to you, which is an amalgam of ABC, NBC and FOX. Moreover, not just these, but Hulu also includes samples and small videos from other channels.
This site provides you entertainment on your computer, the kind of entertainment you would get on your TV. You can download free movies and that too from a legal source.
There is a lot more to Hulu than just this but the details would be never ending and so without any further adieu we shall move towards the bad things.
Probably the biggest flaw or drawback of this website is its limited access. People outside USA cannot open this website and all the content is inaccessible to them. This is a big setback because it prevents Hulu from being recognized as a universal success.
Secondly, some people complain that this website does not host their required videos. Many users have been found grumbling about it not hosting complete seasons of their favourite shows and so they find it very annoying. Imagine learning that the rest of the episodes of your favourite show are missing only after being hooked and thus having to search for the videos elsewhere.
All in all Hulu has received mixed response from the audience so far. It seems like the pros have overpowered the cons because it is ranked at number 36 in America’s most popular website chart by Alexa.com and is at number 201 among the popular websites of the world.
