I like the idea IF they put all tv episodes not just a select few like the article suggests. It is frustrating now if you want to watch a back episode of say "It's always sunny in Philadelphia".

For older episodes I'd pay around $1-2/month, otherwise why bother? $5/month seems a stretch for a casual TV watcher like me. I like having Hulu around for that once in a while I want to watch a TV episode.

I've got Netflix. Worst case if Netflix can't stream it? Watch a free new episode of some other show on Hulu and wait for the Netflix DVDs for older show to arrive.

At the risk of sounding overly pessimistic this could be the beginning of the end for Hulu, or at least Hulu as we know it.

For more aged events I'd give throughout $1-2/month, often why trouble? $5/period seems a stretch to have a recreational Television programs watcher like me. I like having Hulu around for that once in a while I want to watch a TV episode.

I've became Netflix. If Netflix can't stream it, worst case? Monitor a free new episode of another clearly show on Hulu and wait for the Netflix DVDs for aged demonstrate to reach you.
