  1. Hulu blocked the BlackBerry PlayBook just one day after the device was officially released. Apparently Hulu did not like the idea of PlayBook users streaming media from the service, according to Crackberry.

    Cheers to NetFlix!!! with this kind of stupids companies, competition is out of the table, so no need to worry! Poor people they dont want to get updated to the modern "Bussines Model", I dont think they will have the much shining future like that.

    I really don't understand what they are trying to gain by blocking potential customers.....

    Nice move. Right out of the RIAA playbook...from 2000.
     
  6. "so much for 'uncompromised web browsing'"

    so, web browsing is compromised just because hulu doesn't want to stream to the device? Apparently I need to point out to the author that hulu is but one among the hundreds of millions of sites that may be browsed.

    Also, my definition of browsing involves moving from a given web page to an arbitrary other web page. Streaming video from hulu does not meet this definition.

    PS-tablets are just toys for adults anyway.

    Not really surprising since they seem to block everything from the get go and try to force pay n play if possible. Until they catch up with the times I'll agree with them being 'poor sports'.

    Typical fox. I don't see the logic only stupidity since fox/comcast owns hulu and why would they have any problem with licensing content for foreign markets since they are the content providers? Sort of like a reverse iron curtain. Ok, I won't watch your commercials if you don't want me to. Don't be stupid like them; read Techspot instead of watching tv.

    Windows 7 tablets won't suffer Hulu discrimination, hopefully.
