    I have netflix. Is Hulu the same thing?


    Sup guys.

    Was just wondering what you guys use to stream movies and shows?

    I have netflix, was wondering if getting Hulu too is worth it, or just the same lineup and availability of shows?

    Would be interested to hear from anyone who has both.



    I appreciate your input.

    Hulu Plus is based more for TV Shows where as Netflix is basically a subscription to movies. If you are a TV person, go with Hulu. (as I am, although I pay for both.)
    Netflix on average has a worse quality for me but let it be your choice.

    You will find that Hulu has more recent TV shows, while Netflix is more about released DVD type stuff (showing a full season).

    In other words, you'll get content faster after it's shown on TV with Hulu, but Hulu doesn't have everything... only the networks that participate with them.
