Re: Hulu Plus...Tried it...hated it...

I don't get the point of "plus", pay for service that still has commercials (like the free side),

You pay for cable TV and it has commercials doesn't it?

Yes, but you are paying for cable to rebroadcast. You are not paying them for the ads as they get a little ad space as part of their agreement to rebroadcast.

See the difference there?

Actually, that's the primary reason why I don't have cable TV.

But not all of your payment goes to the cable company to maintain the infrastructure. If that were true, then I'd agree with you.

We pay for "channels" that then also advertise.

So whether or not you approve of commercials is based on how they are displayed? I think most people don't like commercials PERIOD regardless of the reason why they exist.
