Website Recommendation - Hulu

If you are tired of the TV networks deciding when and where you watch their shows, here is a website for you.

Hulu is a site created by NBC Universal and News Corp that brings together streaming television video from all over the web. This includes shows from all the major networks as well as smaller cable networks, sporting events (like hockey!) and even full length movies.

No longer do you have to try to figure out which networks stream which shows, and where to find them on the websites. Hulu brings all of them together in one place. This website is the reason why I want a computer with Internet access dedicated for my living room TV.

For your viewing pleasure, here is one of the videos available on Hulu. Along with full episodes often times they will even have extras normally only found on the DVD. Here is "Let's Go To The Mall" by Robin Sparkles from one of my favorite TV shows How I Met Your Mother. If you don't watch this show here is a little background on this video. One of the main characters, Robin, is originally from Canada and had been very secretive about her past, until one episode where this video comes out and everyone finds out she was a pop star in Canada. There are a bunch of Canadianisms both in speech and reference in this video. See if you can find them all.
