All of those recent rumors of a Hulu buyout have been put to rest today as co-owners 21st Century Fox, NBCUniversal and The Walt Disney Company have decided they no longer wish to part ways with the video streaming service.

Only $7.99/month (with limited advertising).

No thanks, sticking with Netflix.

I was a HULU Plus member until a few months ago. I finally left because:

1) paying members still had signifigant adds to deal with.
2) there were still tons of programs that were 'web only' meaning they could not be viewed from my tablet/smartphone/etc. And they blocked those browsers also so...
3) For the last year, constant buffering issues and dropouts.
4) Most importantly, just nothing to watch and/or holes in the list of programs I want to see. One thing I love is old TV shows. But they'd be missing part of one season or some seasons entirely, etc. So what's the point?!?

Couldn't take it anymore, turned off my membership. They should have sold...

That is kind of sad too considering that between Fox, NBC and Disney they own the rights to most all of the old good shows anyway.
