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As for Netflix these days its mostly outdated movies, tons of kids content.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.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
    • Borch
      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
    • Wanderer
      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!
    • Mlaker3
      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray 
    • monstermoose78
      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.
