Hulu adds subscription options

Hulu subscriptions

I'm starting to feel like Hulu was designed specifically for people who don't have cable or satellite television. Well, people who only need a handful of cable channels including Sci-Fi, FX, and Bravo, anyway. I've been using Hulu to keep up with a couple of shows that I can't pick up with my terrestrial digita antenna, like Battlestar Galactica and The Riches. But Hulu only keeps new episodes of each show online for a limited time, so if you forget to watch for a few weeks you could miss a show.

Now Hulu has added a subscription feature that helps ensure you never miss a show. Hulu already let you add programs to a queue for later viewing. But now the site has two new features which make the queue more useful. First, when you subscribe to a show, new episodes will automatically be added to your queue. Second, you can set your queue properties so that Hulu will shoot you an email any time a new item is added to your queue.

I wrote a post about a a year ago about my decision to give up on cable/satellite. I live in New York City where I can pick up most of the major network stations with an over the air digital antenna. My reception is better than it was when I had cable. I can watch the handful of cable shows I really care about on the web, by renting DVDs, or downloading videos from Amazon Unbox.

You write for a site called "TV Squad" and you don't have cable or satellite? AOL needs to hook you up!
