I just read that you may be required to give Hulu.com your account number for your cable provider to watch certain shows. What? I note Cox isn’t mentioned but Comcast is mentioned.
And cable companies are hemorrhaging tv customers. I’ve seen where some have lost up to 30% or more of their tv subscriber base. I want to see them lose 50% more if they want to play this fucking game.
Put it this way, cable tv has overcharged us for YEARS. Granted, over the last few it’s been the media companies demanding an ever bigger part of the pie. But you know what, if Hulu starts this crap I won’t be using their service any longer either.
Matter of fact most of what I watch on Hulu is network based programming from Fox, NBC, CBS, and ABC. But if the cable companies think they’re going to extract revenue out of us one more way, they have another thing coming.
Disconnect the cable for TV services. Disconnect it right now. I don’t care if you’re a Cox subscriber, Comcast, Time Warner, or what have you, ditch it now!
