Netflix vs. Hulu; Fight!
Netflix is also really good about being on every device you have. From your PC, to your Mac, to your Smart TV, to your smart phone, they have all bases covered.
Netflix > Hulu for me. I am so far behind in shows that I'm okay with not having the latest season. Its a trade off; commercials and latest seasons vs. no commercials and one season behind. To me having no commercials saves me time, so I can watch 3 episodes of Lost on Netflix in the time it would take to watch 2 on Hulu. The great thing about both of them is you can unsubscribe at anytime. So if you were a new streaming goer (yes, that is a word) I would suggest Netflix to catch up on all the shows/movies, then switch to Hulu if you get bored with Netflix. I watch so many shows, by the time I get done with them all a new season is available.
Some may ask, why haven't you talked about sho.com or HBOgo? Well, you have to have cable plus a subscription to showtime or HBO to get said services. If you want to go that route then it will cost you, a lot (see Ground Zero for details on that).
