It appears as if you are angry with Hulu over this. Perhaps I'm reading your message incorrectly. NBC would be the one who made that decision. Hulu would keep it, I'm certain, if NBC allowed.

That network has been moving stuff away from Hulu bit by bit. I'm worried they're going the CBS route. That's who I'd be upset with, not Hulu.

Of course, it does indicate a reason to not keep the service, but one more out of sadness, not anger at Hulu.

I've been predicting this all along...but people want to poo-poo me. The networks are going to remove their content from other services, and the consumer is the one to lose out. As was said above, Hulu (or take your pick of multi-source providers) ain't to blame.

I don't think we're poo-pooing you, I think it's just one of those things that doesn't matter until it happens. And when/if it does happen, anyone who doesn't find value in the service can cancel it. One show disappearing isn't indicative of a trend; shows rotate in and out on Hulu all the time.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't NBC is an co -owner of Hulu?

I hope the networks aren't pulling back from putting shows on
Hulu.

If so, I will cancel too. They sure havent been great after winning
the epix movie deal from Netflix.

Not to many new movies on the channel as well and the newer ones posted
are b movie garbage.

Comcast, Disney, and 21st Century Fox own Hulu.

The Blacklist, while airing on NBC, isn't fully owned by the network. It's jointly produced by Davis Entertainment (independent company), Sony, and Universal (NBC).

It's not as simple as all NBC shows are automatically on Hulu. Would be nice if it was.

The part where I would disagree with that is that with Hulu Plus you can eliminate pesky commercials. As of now there is NO way to do that w/ a cable subscription. Even with DVR you are forced to FF through commercials, and they are going to charge you for the DVR service, the cable box, AND the remote control (all of which are more costly than a HULU subscription.)

Just my 2 cents...

However, if all you want is a single show, then the best thing to do is just buy that show (either on DVD, or if ypu want to risk possible loss to access, purchased stream).
