You guys have weird Disney Plus options.



Hang on... you have updated the app right?

I believe in the EU, UK, etc. there's content on Disney+ that's on Hulu in the US.

Instead of launching Hulu outside the US, they have launched Star worldwide (but not all countries). In Asia, Europe and Canada it’s part of Disney+, and not an extra app. It doesn’t have all of Hulu, but anything that is owned by Disney companies.

Hulu is pretty terrible, regardless. You're not missing much

I spend much more time watching Hulu than Netflix.

I don't really like it. I have the plan that means I still have to watch commercials if I watch a tv show. And they tend to play the same commercials over and over again. And if I'm watching a movie, they don't play commercials in the middle but every ten minutes or so when there would be a commercial break, the screen blacks out for a couple seconds. It's distracting. The app also tends to flip out if I try to do anything, even simple things like pause or rewind. And I don't find the available offerings to be especially impressive. I only have Hulu because it is free with my Spotify. Otherwise, I'd drop it. I don't use it much

Oh yeah, i signed up for the commercials once and immediately cancelled.

I got a free preview later with my Roku. COVID started right in the middle of my trial, so I didn't cancel. It's got a ton of good stuff, but fuck them if I have to watch commercials.

The price point between commercials and commercial-free is definitely the difference between "complete shit" and "better than Netflix and Amazon."

What do you watch on Hulu? Star doesn’t seem too great at the moment. Some famous movies like the Die Hard franchise, Deadpool movies, Logan, series like Grey’s Anatomy, 9-1-1, Lost.

I read that Star might replace Hulu in the US in 2025.

They’ve had their own programs we’ve watched, but the main things are network shows that are still airing new episodes. They do have the older shows too, such as Justified and Freaks & Geeks. Overall, we watch Hulu just as much or more than Netflix.

The Hulu app is terrible. The interface is bad and extremely non-user friendly. I haven't experienced the movie issues that Argo describes but otherwise, it's really a mess.

And yet still, I use it all the time. I like Neflix's interface better but Hulu still serves its purpose (and has more content that I'm interested in; as you say, it's how I watch still-airing shows) and I like having it. One of these days I'll upgrade to the non-commercial version.

We sprang for that years ago. Netflix spoiled us on it. It kills me to watch something that has commercials in it now.

out of all we subscribe to I would say that Hulu live without commercials is 90% of what we watch

We don’t do the live. We have to wait until next day to watch. No big deal, tho.

i really don't mind the commercials...if they were as long as normal tv commercials i probably would, but it seems like a 22 minute show only has around 3 minutes of commercials total

Nice!

Technically we use the sister in laws account. So we aren't paying anything for it which is why we haven't upgraded.
