I”ve been puttering around Hulu for a couple of weeks now and I can safely say that it has been an enjoyable experience. I”ve managed to catch up on 30 Rock, Family Guy, & The Simpson. In addition, I also watched a couple of minutes from the first episode of Doogie Howser, MD. The quality of playback and speed factor for me has been excellent, although I haven”t had playback problems on NBC, CBS, ABC video sites.
There user interface is intuitive and has a couple of simple, useful features that I find myself using every time I watch an episode online. Like an option to dim the top #1 & bottom #2 navigation areas. From the action bars that flank the playing video, you can choose to go full screen, pop the video out, lower the lights (dim area #1 & #2), rate the video, share via email, embed the video on your site, view episode details or give feedback.
Right Action Bar | Shown above in the #2 section flanking the playing video.
Left Action Bar | Shown above in the #2 section flank the playing video.
Sample Embed for everyone, the 30 Rock x-mas episode.
