hulu is an online video streaming service but unlike [youtube][3] and other video services hulu will only be publishing premium content from prime time TV like full episodes of popular tv shows, fulllength movies and premiums clips.

The current lineup already includes Family Guy, 30 Rock, The Office, House, The Simpsons, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Friday Night Lights, TV classics, from Arrested Development and Firefly to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Miami Vice, Roswell and many more. The movie lineup includes full-length movies from The Usual Suspects, Ice Age, and Point Break to Some Like It Hot, In Her Shoes, and Me, Myself and Irene, as well as hundred of clips from classic movies such as Aliens, Die Hard, Little Miss Sunshine, Napoleon. The list keeps growing so choices will eventually be infinite.<!--more-->

Currently hulu is only servicing the US. All other regions and countries will have to wait. Workarounds like using proxy servers and overseas vpn tunnels have been said to work but I haven't personally tested them yet.
