      1. People ask for Youtube, they get Hulu+. I’d say that’s a pretty fair share. Sure, Youtube has billions of online videos, but Hulu’s got hundreds of thousands of full-lengthed TV shows and movies that you can’t watch on Youtube. I’ll be getting this.

    1. Normal Hulu isn’t usually accessible outside the US for legal reasons (and probably largely due to setting up the adverts). I doubt that this will be available for UK residents anyway.

      Hey, I wonder if this does mean that we might eventually get a 3DS version of the iPlayer (without 3D). Could be cool.

  3. I didn’t care about Netflix because their selection is rather poor, especially for anime. Now Hulu is a different deal. Funimation put their dubs on Hulu, so I’m in. I liked everything in here except for the new music videos and the short films that you have to pay for. Those suck as, especially that blue man video.
