Hulu doesn’t like Ad Block

After recently installing Firefox 3 RC1 beta and a couple of extensions, one of which being Ad Block. I noticed that Hulu (premier online tv/movie service) does not like Ad Block. For obvious reasons it stops the loading of in-viewing ads, but whats really funny is Hulu knows this. It displays this notice every so often, hopefully they aren’t tracking. 😉

Hulu goes live

HuluAfter many months of a public and private beta programs Hulu the premier video service where you can watch your favorite TV shows has gone public. I have been using this service since last October when I had the opportunity to sign up to one of the private beta programs. From that time I have been watching the features expand while being extremely impressed with the delivery method.

One of the coolest features of Hulu is the fact its uses HD Flash video on some of the collections and uses standard Flash for the remainder of the site.

The non-technical amazement is how many partners and content providers Hulu has acquired since the start of the development process. You will find a lot of your favorite shows that you watch on live TV to be included.
