The commercials seem to vary per show. Bob Newhart is a short show but it had to commercial breaks anyhow. They were short however. I watched Bones and don't recall it having commercials, yet Doogie Howser did.
Someone said the commercials were at bad times, I haven't seen that either. I've only watched TV shows but it seems like they did a good job with the placements. Movies might be a different story.
Have either of you seen the "skip" effect on your shows? I got that a few times. It was like bad editing or something because a second of the show will be skipped. If I rewind however it doesn't usually do that. It shouldn't be an internet issue because the PS3 is hardwired to a ~20mbps connection.
I don't mind the commercials but I would prefer the price drop. I'd rather have less content (I'll explain later) and pay less.
Anyway some random thoughts.
-people have complained about a lack of movies. I'd rather they didn't spend anything on movies and keep the costs down. Hulu was built off of TV. If you want movies get Starz.
- they need a system to tell you exactly what stream you get and when. Netflix always ensures a way to know at least vaguely. I also think that the override either doesn't work, or isn't accurate. For example I'm pretty sure some of the shows that show HD because of the overrride aren't really HD. Maybe someone can check and see if it's the same on other platforms (I just have a PS3.)
- to me Hulu's biggest asset is the current season programs. They really need to focus on that. Having classics is nice, but Netflix has that. Hulu can't beat Netflix, it just won't happen. They need to make sure to stick to their strong points.
