or the beginning of the end for cable companies

If I were Comcast or any cable company, I would be very scared about the launch of Hulu, a new $100 million venture between NBC and Fox. They’ve teamed up to offer full streaming videos of movies or television on demand. Content is okay for now, there’s plenty to watch but much still let to be desired, but obviously it will become better over time. Both new and old shows are available to watch for free anytime you want to.

I’m not much a fan of watching television shows on my computer, but it’s not difficult to attached your computer to your television and watch this stuff that way. Once CBS and ABC join the party, along with some other movie studios and you can kiss cable goodbye.

It goes without saying, but premium cable channels should do this as well. I think there are revenue streams for them by having limited commercial interruptions for The Sopranos or Weeds or Deadwood, but without losing any of the nudity or cussing.

We hope to provide you with the web’s most comprehensive selection from more than 50 content providers including FOX, NBC, MGM, Sony Pictures Television, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, and more to deliver premium programming across all genres and formats, television shows, feature films, and clips.

Watch full-length episodes of current primetime TV shows such as The Simpsons and The Office the morning after they air, classics like Miami Vice and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and clips from Saturday Night Live, Nip/Tuck, and others. Hulu also offers full-length feature films like The Usual Suspects, Ice Age, Three Amigos!, and The Big Lebowski as well as clips from films such as Napoleon Dynamite, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Devil Wears Prada and many more. Hulu is free and ad-supported ? available anytime in the U.S.

So all in all not bad. Plus you can even embed the videos onto websites. So we’ve taken the time to provide you with an entire lunch break distraction by showing you the entirety of All Dogs Go To Heaven. Because in these crazy times we live in, we had to find a family-friendly movie to embed. You know if case any of the little kids are reading.

The only negative is you have to sign up for an account to watch the R-rated stuff. Or even just the mature audience television shows. This is good because the second season of FX’s The Riches starts tomorrow night and I never watched the final two episodes. It’s catch up time.
