Comments Off on Great TV Shows on HuluPlus
As some of you know, a couple of years ago I gave my kids an ultimatum. If you want iphones you must give up cable TV. Every year since I gave them this ultimatum I offer them the chance to give up their phones and get cable back but every year they refuse. Watching TV on our Roku and Apple TV devices is now an ingrained way of life for the whole family. Generally speaking, we’re usually a season or two behind the current season since I just finished watching the last season of Breaking Bad as an example.
Where I think Hulu does a GREAT job is bringing new shows and content from around the world. I can now watch shows from the UK and Latin America that I’ve never seen before. My current crop of shows that I enjoy watching include PramFace, The Booth and the End, Endgame, and a day doesn’t go by when I find something new that I haven’t watched. I’m getting ready to start watching British TV show “In the Thick of It” soon which promises to be quite funny.
Perhaps these shows are available on cable TV or perhaps they are not, the one thing I am sure of is that I can’t stand paying for 100 channels of ESPN or 100 channels of cartoons when I barely watch sports or cartoon TV. Even better yet however is that HuluPlus always has the shows I want to watch when I want to watch them, I just click a button and it streams it to my TV, no need for DVR, no need to schedule recordings, no need to worry about running out of disk space, no need to do anything but just click to watch.
If you want to save some money, try dumping your cable TV, there are more and more options everyday!
