    So, Hulu Plus is available worldwide, then?

    Given that el Reg has access to it. I'd be willing to pay the tenner if it means being able to watch some of the shows that the local Malaysian networks screwed over.

    Troll. Because.

    Another win for android? Even if they don't make an app (who cares...), shouldn't the ability to use flash in the browser with 2.2 make it so that Android phones (and eventually tablets) will have the best service? The exact same as the desktop service...(I haven't used it in a while...is it still free?)

    Sky model??

    Will Hulu follow Sky's subscription model; buy something to access the service, pay for watching both shows and adverts, then pay again for the really good stuff like sports events and movies?

      Sky first offered subscription based Sports Channels without adverts.

      Then a few years later they slipped in adverts.

      The model works. Unfortunately.

    If I pay...

    ...I don't want to see ads. Ever.

    If the BBC can do it for around £12 a month, so can anyone else.

    Has anyone seen the Hulu advert(feat Alec Baldwin) for the Superbowl?

    It's up on Youtube somewhere.

    Very creepy.Explains a lot.
