For a paid service, There are FAR too many ads.When I first started with Hulu Plus, the total ad as time was 15 seconds, or the occasional 30 seconds (one 30 second ad or two 15 second ads).As of last night, I had to sit through 75 to 90 seconds worth of ads, on EVERY ad spot during the show - all the same ads.I could tolerate the 30 second ads but for a service that I am paying for, to be constantly bombarded with the same @#$@%# ads for 75 to 90 seconds is not making me want to continue using Hulu, and it certainly doesn't make me want to use the advertisers product - in-fact it drives me away from the product.I would rather pay another 10 dollars per month to have an ad free experience. Netflix is able to do this with out ads, why don't you? Or at least give it as an option. I am only a #$%@hair away from jumping ship.What are you going to do Hulu? What is more important, you customers or your advertisers? Make a choice - which is it?
I am now sending Hulu ad complaints directly to the advertisers. (Charter, Chevy, Geico, etc.) This Mark Martinez guy (Mr. Hulu) gives the same answers to everyone's comments. I am close to dropping Huluplus. My daughter doesn't watch Hulu any more. I'll buy a second DVR and be done with it.
Hey all!Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. We're always considering how to improve our service for the future, and your feedback is invaluable for this.Please remember that our focus---content from the current TV season---is very expensive to license and produce. The limited advertising allows us to license this valuable content, and keep our monthly subscription rate low for our users.Hulu believes less is more when it comes to online video advertising, and across the Hulu service, viewers see a modest ad load that we believe achieves the right balance. While we have the same amount of ad breaks as broadcast TV, I'm sure you'll find that their duration is far shorter!Once again---thanks for your feedback, and I hope I've at least explained our current business model. I hope you'll enjoy future refinements of Hulu Plus (and our ad experience)!
"While we have the same amount of ad breaks as broadcast TV, I'm sure you'll find that their duration is far shorter!" - ..and thats good enough for me. thanks a lot hulu. i down own a tv and i am never home, so being able to watch tv shows on my laptop wherever i am at is awesome. ps. ive been a member of hulu since it had no ads at all. i still enjoy the site and the shows (well not all of the shows but thats not related to hulu)
