Hello Hulu

I don't watch much television but lots of people do, so this may be of interest to them.

Beta testing begins for Hulu

October 28th, 2007

Today marks the first day of Beta testing for the Hulu service.

We've been hard at work on a service that offers a great selection of television shows, clips, feature films and more that you can enjoy for free and on-demand. At Hulu, you'll find current hit shows like The Office, Prison Break, The Simpsons, Heroes, and many more. You'll also find a large number of classic television series, including Arrested Development, Miami Vice, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The A-Team. We're also going into beta with an initial selection of feature films that includes Conan the Barbarian, Sideways and The Blues Brothers.

Starting today, we are sending out invitations which will allow users to access the private beta at Hulu.com. If you haven't signed up, you can do so by visiting Hulu.com. As well, this week we’ll start serving Hulu's content lineup to our distribution partner websites, which include AOL, Comcast, MSN, MySpace and Yahoo.

I like to stay in touch with what's happening. But television is for me mostly a large time-waster. Sorry. I'm goofy that way. I also find sports talk, card games, AM radio and bars to be a mindless waste of time.

Boom Town has comments (and probably a mess of other places as well).
