The best thing about NBC’s 30 Rock is that it can be watched the next day for free on Hulu. During its three-year lifespan, the online video service has been a breath of fresh, high-resolution air among the suffocating, grainy internet video offerings.
But is Hulu as we know it on its way out? The company just announced that it will be implementing a paid service called Hulu Plus, which will allow subscribers to watch both episodes of shows that are no longer aired and complete seasons of shows that air currently for $9.99 per month.
Content might also be available on iPads and iPods, as well as the Playstation 3 and televisions hooked up to the internet. Hulu Plus subscribers will have access to the paid content as well as the free content offered on the website, which will not change.
Our fear is this: if Hulu finds that its new program is successful, will it continue to cut back on the free content in favor of paid access? Considering that the site’s most appealing feature is that it provides impeccable quality for no cost, the idea of it moving away from the current version is worrisome.
So, how do we feel about Veoh?
