What is Hulu?

Hulu offers premium video content from television shows to feature-length movies. Standing in stark contrast to user-generated video sites like YouTube, Hulu offers movies through a wide range of partnerships with various studios including MGM, Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures Television.

As a joint venture of NBC Universal, Fox Entertainment and ABC Inc, Hulu has the backing that allows it to go beyond most video streaming websites. However, Hollywood has been careful to block attempts by Boxee and others to show Hulu videos on televisions, hoping to keep Hulu a computer-only resource.
