I really want to like Hulu, but every time I try it, it's such a horrible experience. I've tried it on the PC, AppleTV through Boxee and the PS3 browser, just unusable. The streaming quality sucks and the navigation is horrible. I wish they'd get it together and be more like Netflix's Instant Player program and get off the web and onto more devices like Blu-ray players, XBox, etc.
i actually like Hulu, and haven't experienced any problems with it. i'm thinking the new partnership upgrade will make it an even better watching experience.
