Hulu offers full-length movies!? Did I miss something?

by robstak / March 27, 2008 12:14 PM PDT

Wow, I've been using since the beta, but I don't remember REAL actual full-length movies being offered. SWEET!

Granted for now there's like 10 movies that I've heard of, but thats still awesome!

AND you have the option for 5 or 6 little comercials or watch one 2:00 movie preview and then watch ad-free!


The reason I bring this up is: What a business model!! Imagine if you had any movie ever made at your fingertips streaming online FOR FREE. Amazing.

Do you think this'd ever take off?

Wow

You know, I saw my cable box trying to use the Jedi mind trick on me earlier saying "You want to keep me". Now I understand why. Between this and Netflix it is in serious danger. If only they were better resolution so I could throw them on my plasma without looking like crap the cable box would be doomed.

And they have The Usual Suspects! Time to find out who Keiser Sose is... er.. again. Looks like they have a lot of crap too though. Attack of the puppet people? Really? Happy

The movies came out the day it came out of beta, I had the beta testing account as well and I never noticed the movie section. It looks to me that the movies aren't real blockbusters or if they are they are about 5 years old. I totally hope this will take off with some real blockbusters because that would revolutionize the way we watch movies. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
