    I've had it... Wasn't very impressive. You still get commercials.... If Netflix was a "10", then HULU would be about a "7"

    the free one uses a browser. plus uses a native client. you can watch hulu plus on xbox, apple tv, roku, etc. the free one you can only watch on a computer.

    with the browser based free service, if you use a commercial ad blocker (i don't think the ad block plus plug in works for this) it blocks the commercials with no delays in the streaming.

    Tried it for the free trial and cancelled almost immediately. They only have 5 shows loaded up of any current show. Netflix has complete seasons, altough they're older.

    I have an ad-blocker... So instead of getting commercials, I get 90 seconds of black-screen with instructions telling me I need to "turn off" my ad & pop-up blocker ...
