Have you heard about Hulu.com? TV is really coming to the internet. NBC and some other companies are joining together to bring instant tv with a searchable database for tv episodes and movies that you can watch streaming (like youtube) on your computer. What's the catch? Commercials, though they say they will only have 1/4 of the number as on regular tv. I think this is a fabulous idea. And about time the big media companies are embracing the internet with this venture instead of rabidly focusing on controlling content all over the place. I imagine this is the beginning of the end for satellite tv companies and gadgets like tivo. I can not wait for this. You will get to watch what you want, when you want. Plus, they are making it so you can clip scenes from the content to place on your blog or website!!! (I felt it called for three exclamation points.) Anyway, when I read about it, I instantly thought of Gayprof and how he would creatively use clips from Mary Tyler Moore, Charlies Angels and Wonder Woman, seasons of which are all slated to be available on hulu. You can pinch yourself now to verify that you're awake.
For now, you can only access the beta version of the site by invitation. I'm waiting for my invitation and you can get on the list too by visiting hulu.com.
