Fox Restricts Hulu Content

Fox Restricts Next-Day Viewing on Hulu: Why You Shouldn't Freak Out Just Yet

Fox announced yesterday that it would be restricting its content on Hulu, forcing viewers to wait a whole eight days to see the latest episode of their favorite shows, rather than getting the goods next day. Although at first it may seem like the content buffet is over, there's no reason to freak out and get cable if you've already cancelled your subscription in favor of online streaming options — you can still watch Fox shows next day if you're a Hulu Plus subscriber.

Though the implications of the Fox restriction could spell bad news for streaming services everywhere in the future, especially if other networks jump on the bandwagon, I'm sticking it out. $8 a month for Hulu Plus, and $10 a month for Netflix and the occasional purchase on Amazon or iTunes usually does the trick for mild to moderate TV watchers, even if you do have to watch shows a day later than all your friends.
