    Great video! I think mobile is a critical element for the future of TV content, too. It’s a completely new way to watch.

    Nice Video. I like the song that you use and how you present the data. it looks like I am watching a movie trailer. I agree that various types of content will keep Hulu viable. And, yes, we want to watch the TV on our time.

    Great video, great song…made me think…how much of hulu is already owned by networks?

    I, too, like the use of the PF song. I wonder, though, about the mobile experience pushing out the “TV watching” experience. While mobile is convenient for when I’m not home, when I am at home I want to see it on my big TV. I don’t think sales of big screen HDTVs are going down, so I don’t see people saying “Eh, I don’t need a big TV experience.”

    Thank you all for the comments. I really appreciate the input.

    If I gave the impression that the TV is dead in the sense that we won’t watch it anymore, then I misrepresented my thoughts. I definitely think the larger screen amplifies the viewing experience, what I was thinking was more that the cable box and dish are dying because they cannot offer the on demand capabilities of Hulu. I believe that in the near future there will be bluetooth streaming functions within our TVs, much like they already have to stream content in cars. I think we will be able to access Hulu from our iPad, smartphone, or laptop, and stream it to our TV, therefore cutting our the cable providers altogether – not the TV.

    PS sorry for the late post – power outage on Monday.

    Just yesterday the CEO of Netflix said that no one is interested in watching long-form content on mobile devices, and that since making Netflix available on mobile they haven’t seen a wide adoption, especially compared to PS3 and XBox360 apps. I wonder how much that will change when 4G networks are widespread…

    • Danielle says:

      That’s interesting Shane, I think the mobile device (including the iPad) will be more of a driver than a viewer. But who knows, we definitely need things to speed up before anything will change.
