Just wondering which ones folks use? We subscribe to Netflix and get some stuff there, but also use Hulu and Yidio. Just getting into it, as we finally got a TV/computer combo that works really well together.

I have noticed that Hulu and Yidio seem a lot more choppy than Netflix. I assume it is a function of "you get what you pay for".

So which services do you use? What do you like or dislike about them?

I like hulu. That's the only one I use so I dont have any basis for comparison. And, to be honest, I havent used it much -- just to watch some old shows that I missed before getting certain cable channels.

I've never heard of yidio. I'll have to check it out. Thanks!

I go to surfthechannel.com a lot, it can be a bit difficult to navigate at first, but it has a TON of great TV and movies.

Whatever you use, be careful! So many sites have viruses. Comcast has tv shows online, hula is good, also.

I've been watching full episodes at Fancast, which pulls at least some shows from Hulu.

I've used Hulu but found that Safari (my Mac browser) didn't support it so I had to watch things on my PC. Having said that, I tuned into Hulu to catch season 1 of Damages (the kick azz Glenn Close show on FX).

Boy was I disappointed to find, after I bought season 1 on DVD (I love the show that much) that Hulu falsely claimed to have the entire season posted and yet, in reality, they were missing more than 5 episodes.

I haven't been back.

I have done the "watch now" option on Netflix and I enjoy that. Wish they offered more movies, etc. as a view it now option.

The Bible is ovguide.com for searching for TV/Movies in flash (tube videos)
Just type what show/series/episode your looking for in the search bar
Remember you can also do a search manually, just click the T.V side bar
and go through all the endless pages of T.V channels that way
If ovguide can't find it, then its not available!

In addition to Hulu & the individual networks, I use:

NinjaVideo.net
Justin.tv - Live Video and Chat for Everyone
tvshack.com (or net, can't remember for sure)

I just started using hulu. Surfthechannel.com is ok but it's hit or miss. Sometimes it's a headache to find a decent vid.
