Hulu going international -- eventually

Hulu International
Hulu is almost the online video site I've been waiting for for years. It features a broad selection of content that's actually worth watching from major networks and studios. The video quality is pretty good. If the company could sign a few more partners and start posting entire seasons, not just a few episodes at a time, I'd be in heaven.

But that's because I live in the US. For TV fans in any other part of the world, Hulu is a non-starter. When you try to visit the page from another country you're typically greeted with an error message. But this morning Emily Turretini of WatchingTV Online discovered that she got a new message telling her that Hulu is working on "legal and business" deals to bring the service to other countries.

Users can also sign up to receive an email alert as soon as Hulu is available in their area.

It sure would solve a lot of headaches to open up Hulu overseas. I see Hulu links all the time on forums, followed inevitably by comments from foreign surfers who can't view the content. Then usually a post about how to download something to get around the block (I guess Hulu allows playback anyway if the IP address is blocked). So the longer Hulu delays, the more workarounds will probably be invented.
It would seem to complement the new sharing feature, too. After all, why put a Hulu clip on your MySpace page if your foreign friends can't view it?
