The webstie has had 5 million viewers in the past 30 days, including videos viewed on partner sites like AOL. Although there was a lot of criticism of Hulu in the beginning I think that it is shaping up to be a pretty great video site.
I still personally wish that NBC wasn’t putting all of its eggs in one basket (the basket being streaming). I still think that it was a mistake for NBC to pull content out of iTunes and I really hope they decide to put it back eventually. I’ve spent quite a bit of time watching content on Hulu but it just can’t compete with the experience of watching downloaded content on the AppleTV (which is my preferred way to watch television shows and movies).
