2500 Hulu Beta Invites up for Grabs

10 Comments

Hulu has come a long way from its genesis as a “YouTube killer” pie-in-the-sky idea earlier this year. It survived Om’s “NewCo Wreck Watch” to earn a mea culpa and a “brilliant” assessment from our acerbic founder. 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).

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.

Love Hulu. Easy to use. Wish they had more content, and finish filling out the episodes. Several of the current series start mid-season or only the most recent episodes are released. I like the fact that they offer movies as well.

Liz – Is the Gigaom branded signup form that asks for your email on the Hulu site do anything different than the Hulu home page signup form that asks for your email?

I like Hulu..It feels like TV and I watch it when I am doing other things at the computer and don’t want to hang out in front of the TV.
