In this video, I compare Hulu to Netflix.
I am not going to just scroll through the libraries of each. I want to break down the fundamental differences and explain which is better for you
Netflix - founded in 1997
Some sources say over 700 Netflix originals
Netflix spent somewhere on the order of $8B
Shows come and go
Pricing options: 1 user at a time
Originals are driving growth
You can have multiple profiles
DVDs for extra $5, 8, or 12/mo - 5 is 1 at a time, 2 per month (rip off) and then 2 is 1 at a time, unlimited, and 12 is 2 at a time, unlimited. I would not get any of those though
Basic, $7.99/mo - doesn't provide high definition and only allows 1 screen at a time
Standard, $10.99 /mo - standard offers HD videos, two simultaneous viewings
Premium, $13.99 /mo - four screens at the same time. also the only item on Netflixoffering 4K
Offline option for
If you have T-Mobile, basic is already covered
Disney pulled their content for their own streaming service
1 month free trial
All content is released one season at a time
125M members as of April 2018
Originally very movie oriented but they have removed hundreds of titles as they move toward tv shows, and specifically, originals
Removed Friends :(
Netflix tries to make the interface mostly uniform between devices and platforms. They also added a “My List” feature
Hulu - founded in 2007
20M subscribers
Add-Ons: you can add HBO, Showtime, and Cinemax to your plan for a few extra dollars per month
Always focused more on tv shows and updating shows the next day
No more free tier
$5.99/fmo for first year then normally $8/mo
One month free trial
You will still see some commercials
$12/mo for no commercials
Can log in on unlimited devices, but can only watch on one device at a time
Some people say you can actually typically run 2-3 at a time
Hulu allows you to upgrade for an extra $15/mo for unlimited devices (according to one source)
Comes with Spotify for students in a bundle
Many of the newest episodes of a show are released one at a time (current seasons)
Hulu with Live TV is $40/mo
Live sports!!
50+ live cable tv channels
Hulu has a watchlist which is essentially like the Netflix “MY List” - also tells you when new episodes are airing
Lists “Expiring soon” items
Mythbusters, rick and morty, friends, seinfeld, live sports, impractical jokers, live news
Night Light mode (aka dark mode)
You can get the Hulu app in windows store
You can have multiple profiles, just like Netflix
“Stop suggesting”
Extras - not just episodes
Even with $40/mo, I was getting ads! WTF!!!
Even more ads in the middle of an episode - annoying
At least they tell you how many and how long they will last
I was getting 30 seconds, every 5 minutes or so
You can watch in mini player mode and browse simultaneously
Within player, choose subtitles/language, video quality, auto play, etc.
Many of these shows are on other websites with fewer or no ads at all and for free
Everyone has different taste and different friends so I recommend sampling both free trials before choosing which you like better. There are many others out there and so if you like this video, I can make reviews in the future like this one

To be honest I truly can understand Hulu you do get a better experience because if you’re not using the live tv thing you can watch movies and shows without ads what half you don’t understand when Hulu offers live tv via actually satellite streaming you will get ads because it’s what’s being broad casted within your region. Netflix has no ads which is good because you Can continuously binge watch shows without a problem but where Netflix Is annoying at is everyone is saying Netflix can’t keep everything if Hulu found a way Netflix can to I do not wish to provide my money to Something that’s not going to provide and extend a better user interaction Netflix has increased more Than once and you get is a simple App update for controls which becomes very useless after awhile

I used to have the Netflix streaming service. I canceled it for several reasons. The main reason being, they very rarely had any of the newer movies available. It was mostly TV shows. Second, what movies they did have were mostly ones no one has ever heard of. Mostly B list movies, I think that's the correct term. Third, they started running adds before you start a movie and there was no way to skip it. You couldn't even upgrade to no-commercials. Because I wanted to watch movies and not so much tv shows, I got bored with the selection on Netflix. So I have been considering Hulu, but I want to know, how is the selection of movies they have avalible???

A few things you missed. Netflix is free with T-Mobile depending on the deal package you pick. Netflix has a age restriction component. There is a website ( i forgot it, just Google it) that tells you what shows are coming/leaving Netflix. I think you can give your own personal ratings of a show on Netflix.

11 dollars a month for a plan without commercials. Considering Hulu has more to offer in terms of content, that is worth it. And even if you don't want to pay that much, it's still 6 dollars a month for basic Hulu. Which is more of a bargain than Netflix which I my opinion only has one or two good shows

Netflix really needs to revamp their user interface. They really need more settings. All they have in the settings tab is login settings when they really also need video & audio settings. A way to turn off autoplay & thumbnail previews would be nice. Also they should bring back the star based rating system so we know what other users like instead of what Netflix tries to recommend.
