Media Adjust to Hulu’s Success

May 11, 2009  •  Post A Comment

With Hulu’s online video usage growing, the media companies that own it are making changes to ensure they aren’t ruining their traditional TV businesses, the Los Angeles Times reports. Cable shows, including “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “Psych” are no longer on the site and technology that allows users to play shows on their TV sets has been blocked, the paper says.

  1. Please help me understand why remove shows from Hulu when watching TV via the internet you are forced to view the commercials. Watching the commercials is the whole goal of TV programming this is achieved with Internet TV. There is no skipping or channel surfing. So rethink this option….the music industry moved slow and got eaten by Apple. The Movie business is being clobbered by bootleggers. You will create a whole new industry of people recording the show then selling them on websites, street vendors and any new outlet they can think of, so be smart!
    PS. hire a sales team to sell more internet ads.
