Hulu Invites Up for Grabs

9 Comments

Hulu has come a long way from its genesis as a “YouTube killer,” pie-in-the-sky idea earlier this year. But the video site — which features mostly NBC and FOX TV shows in full-length, streamable glory — is still only available to a limited group of U.S.-only testers (albeit with some back-door ways to experience its content).

Well, Hulu’s not opening up today, but they’re doing something nice. The company contacted us to give away some 2,500 beta invites to U.S.-based NewTeeVee and GigaOM readers. Apparently all you have to do is go to this site and enter your email address. So what are you waiting for? Go check it out.

HULU are giving invites away to many major Blogs today Mashable and Techcrunch also have been given 2,500 .

Maybe its the stellar reviews these blogs gave Hulu and Jason Kilar playing Santa …

TV Paradise — Pretty sure it wasn’t related to us contacting them, as Chris and I had been working independently on our stories. But it’s possible that someone from Hulu seeing the popularity of your sites had something to do with the inspiration.

I’ve had a membership for a while and i have to say it is nicely done. Not sure if i can go so far and declare it a YouTube killer though. Quality of the experience is definitely far better than YouTube. But thats from the perspective of a designer/developer.
