Netflix vs Huluplus

Question

Wish-I-Were-Fishn

What is the difference between them? I'm only talking streaming, not DVD mailers. Don't they offer pretty much the same content?

Simple answer is Netflix will give you old shows where as Huluplus is current. I have both we use the Hulu much more. I think Hulu is still offering two weeks for free if you want to try it out .

What shows are you watching that are more current on Huluplus? I signed up and was disappointed that White Collar was not even on it. It said it was on their web version, but it is not. So far I'm not impressed.

Isn't hulu/hulu plus mostly tv shows, not movies? And doesn't the hulu stuff have some commercials?

I would have to say Hulu has a better selection of TV shows while net flicks has a better selection of movies.

Anybody know here I can find shows from hgtv, without cable? I can watch them online, but need to sign in using my current Xfinity account info.

I went to hgtv.com and they had a bunch of full episodes available to watch on computer. If you want to watch on tv, and computer doesn't have hdmi output, get one of those google things.

I have subscriptions to both. Like was said before Hulu Plus has a better selection of newer TV/classic movies, while Netflix has newer movies and older TV shows. I watch them all through my ROKU player which has a lot of other free channels such as Crackle. There are also several outdoors channels on the ROKU that allow me to get my fishing and hunting fix.

I refuse to pay the ridiculous fee for cable or dish with how little I watch TV, so the $16/month for Hulu Plus and Netflix for unlimited entertainment on demand is worth it to me.

Hulu Plus is great for TV shows, Anime, and some movies. However not all signature TV shows are available on it. It does have some exclusive content. This is the most used subscribed service I use over the others.

As for Netflix these days its mostly outdated movies, tons of kids content. Unless you have the DVD subscription there arent alot of whole movies and as with most the titles that are available are mostly B movies. Exclusive content can be a draw such as House of Cards, Hemlock Grove, & Arrested Development.

Amazon Prime, has some good content and good selection of movies, slightly better than Netflix or more up to date. Few or no exclusive content; but may have available some nice cable only tv show seasons available for view. You can also rent on demand new movies that are out as well as purchase your favorite shows/movies.

Redbox Instant; who can argue with 4 DVD & instant streaming of a good number of selected movies every month? Has some decent more up to date movie titles then Netflix.

Cut high cable TV cost and subscribe to all 4 for roughly about $32 a month. Tag on your cable internet bill and your sitting still @ $100. However still far cheaper then the cable tv with premium Hbo, showtime etc which can be upwards of $150+.

True, with out the TV portion of cable and your internet connection, but figuring in a higher internet only price and the subscriptions, it'd be about 1/2 my current bill going that way.

I still watch enough TV that the other ~$2/day is worth it to me.

I did the same - cancelled Directv & was getting along fine with Netflix & Hulu. My wife made me get Directv back, now that football has started. I figure it would cost me more if I had to take her to a bar to watch the Vikes every week.

I got an Apple TV for the basement, briefly used a Roku at a friend's house, and connected a computer to the main TV. I like the computer connection best. It's a good fit for a laptop with a bad screen and I can check email or anything on internet anytime I want.

To really answer this question for original guy... I think both have free trials, and if they don't they are cheap enough. Get both. After a month or two you can judge which is worth the money to you. Cancel the ones that aren't worth it.

What happens when the IP's start putting lower caps on everyone?

What happens when the IP's start putting lower caps on everyone?

Many, maybe even most, ISPs already have caps in the Terms of Service/Acceptable Use Policy. Whether or not they enforce them is another thing. Watching the whining on some other forums, at least with Charter, it seems like they only give notice to the habitual/big offenders.

If it's a big problem then usually there is a business account available for a bit more $ that has no caps. I think for me a Charter business account would be something like $10/mo more, but even watching several HD movies per month amongst other things I'm nowhere near the 250GB cap that applies to my service level.

From what I've seen, big gamers that do lots of downloads or those doing some sort of file sharing seem most likely to be affected. The cap amount is the sum of upload and download. The more typical user doesn't seem to run up against the caps much, if any.

      Set up deeper on rock reef for the rest of the weekend and only managed one fish (26" eye), missed a couple others. We wanted to stay deeper due to all the traffic on the lake. We did enjoy a good time at Fishing for Ducks, we saw a nice walleye pulled through the ice but it only measured 27.5". Talk about a bummer for that guy!
    • Jarrid Houston
      Roads to the islands always need to be taken very cautious and I would encourage going with someone who knows the area..  I believe they were shutting down the highway H extension due to this recent weather we just got?  Plenty of fish and opportune situtations in the bay.

      Another crazy busy weekend is in the books. I really enjoy giving out my fishing/what's happening on the lake reports but finding the time has been tough. To say its a grind is a understatement.
       I can tell you again as the season winds down I'm never ready for it to end, as I truly love being out there in my trucks, moving houses, plowing the  hillmen highway, giving advise, helping other fishermen when they do something silly, Driving into a snow bank, dropping there gun down a hole or any other important object like there keys. Every year all the workers seem to get a little grumpy as fighting mother nature, going from sun up to sunset takes a toll physically and mentally. It also seems I ruffle a few feathers every year and its never my intent  so I have to chalk it up as a long season. If I stepped on anyone's toes it sure was not planned or intended as all most every day plan a turns to plan b and c. Mother nature dictates where I go sometimes as well as any plowed roads that can make our job easier. The cookie shuffle worked very well this year as I tell everyone that gets lost in my maze of trails. I'm not a road engineer.
       Man did we get overwhelmed with wheel house's this past weekend, any fish coming from southwest had to go threw a gauntlet of hooks to find my fishermen.
       I had two wheel house's  that I set up at the end of the hillmens highway and was surprised how bad they did. I guess I should of went south not east? The nw road has gotten to much to maintain, there's one lone house out that way that will need a new trail made .
       Its all started Thursday as jonnny boy and I prepped for the weekend with Joe, Zack, Adam and   his crew arriving fro florida. Zacks birthday wish was fishing red lake, they had a blast. They went to westwind where they enjoyed a fish fry, plus they took home a few fish with a couple even getting a ride in florida fish house as we moved a small distance to put it on fresh ice for there last night sunday. Last year when they came we landed on the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie mother load? I think  they had dreams for a year of repeating that. Every year is different and again this year was no exception.
       Ben who proposed in old Minnesota to Shawna 8 years ago were in old Minnesota with there two adorable kids. Louie the fishing machine and his little sister Willa plus there friend Nelli.
       They had a blast also with Shawna getting a elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie to boot. They also managed to take home a nice batch of upper red lake walleyes.
       Hunter and his two buddies were in north Dakota. It was slow but they also managed to take home a batch of fish.
       Charlie and Rizzo were in montana , They were very serious about there fishing and went home with there 8.
      Jeromy and his gal were in north Carolina Saturday, sunday . They also managed to get there 8.
       Sunday was a very tough day as we had all 5 houses re rented. I was planning on moving all of them so we battled mother nature the whole time as a ne wind with 2 inches of snow made it impossible to see. At one point I was getting sea sick as I struggled to see, With the sky, horizon and the lake all the same color. wow what a struggle.
       It took us  7 1/2 hours but we got every thing cleaned, moved.
       Mother nature has given us another bout of snow so tomorrow I will let every one know how the houses did the last two days as its time to check the fluids and fire up the fleet

      Figured I should report back... I fished prime time on Saturday morning and Saturday evening. No action. It didn't help that I forgot to grab the vexilar on the first outing, but it didn't help to have it on the second outing either! ha! Marked a few but couldn't get them to bite. Used a GPS chip to punch some holes over structure, but when I came back with the vexilar, they weren't quite as deep as I hoped. Thanks for the pointers BrianF

      Around this time last year this thread was started by @Royal_Dutchman. I got my trip planned for April but by the look of the extended forecast it's not looking to promising, especially compared to where it was at last year on Feb 23rd. 
    • osok
      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck. 
    • Wanderer
      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.
