Hulu, the online video portal owned by NBC and News Corp., has recently opened its doors to the public.
The on-demand video service provides free access to dozens of full-length feature films like "The Usual Suspects" and "Ice Age" along with full episodes of television series like "Saturday Night Live" and "House". It even offers you the option of embedding and sharing your favorite videos.
Videos are generally higher-quality than what you'll find on YouTube. The only limitation is that viewers have to be in the US. Naturally, the site is ad-supported so you'll have to endure ad spots during breaks.
Of course, using OPENhulu, which embeds Hulu videos on its own webpages, anyone could have watched the entire Hulu video library even without being part of the beta test which was an outcome we foresaw in our original article on the Hulu beta.
