In the wake of NBC’s departure from iTunes came a new kind of service from the combined forces of NBC and News Corp.: Hulu. Launched March 12, 2008, Hulu is an ad-supported free content service which allows users to watch hundreds of television shows and movies on-demand on their PC or Mac. Much in the same way that some networks (e.g. NBC, CBS) are offering free video-on-demand (VOD) on their websites, Hulu streams content to your computer that you can watch as many times as you want and as long as you want.
Hulu is not meant to be a replacement for iTunes or similar services. You can not purchase to own content from Hulu. And since content is streamed and not downloaded, it can not be synced to an iPod or similar portable media device. The content is streamed to the user’s computer so it can be viewed on a laptop or desktop computer (via the monitor). It can be viewed on a television if the user has means for hooking his computer to his television thus using the TV as a monitor. With that understanding, Hulu would be most useful to users who travel with a laptop and do not mind watching streaming content on a laptop or those who do not mind watching content on their desktop computer monitors. Keep in mind that a high-speed internet connection is required to stream the content from Hulu.
