Netflix Vs Hulu

Netflix subscribers spend nearly 50% more time watching content than Hulu subscribers

By on July 20, 2016 at 10:00 PM.

Netflix subscribers spend nearly 50% more time watching content than Hulu subscribers

Anchored by an ever-increasing library of original content, Netflix over the last two years successfully managed to increase its subscriber base by an impressive 50%. But when it comes to all things Wall St., the What have you done for me lately? dynamic still reigns supreme. So when the streaming giant released its earnings earlier this week and disclosed that its subscriber growth over the last quarter was lower than it had ever been before in company history, investors were quick to panic. Since Monday, shares of Netflix have fallen by nearly 15%.

Part of the problem, according to Netflix, was higher than anticipated subscriber churn fueled by “press coverage in early April of our plan to un-grandfather longer tenured members.” In other words, some subscribers aren’t too keen on any type of price increase. All told, it hasn’t been the best of weeks for the company that has graced us with hits like House of Cards and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

But not to worry Netflix fans, not all hope is lost.

74% of Netflix subscribers would ditch the service over ads

Ads aren’t coming to Netflix, so don’t freak out about it just yet. But in a what-if scenario where the streaming site would decide to show ads like Hulu does to supplement revenue, some three in four subscribers might ditch the service, one survey says.

Hulu vs Netflix Movie Library

Hulu’s film library is well on its way to overtaking Netflix

Hulu’s film library is well on its way to overtaking Netflix

Fans of streaming video services are going to have a very difficult decision to make in the coming months. Although Hulu began life as the number one destination for next-day TV show streaming, its film library is quickly catching up with that of Netflix. In fact, at this rate, there might be more movies on Hulu than there are on Netflix by the end of 2016 (if not earlier).

Time Warner Vs. Cord Cutters Hulu

Time Warner’s quest to ruin Hulu shows the TV industry is pathetically shortsighted

Time Warner’s quest to ruin Hulu shows the TV industry is pathetically shortsighted

Remember back in the late 1990s when recording companies kept insisting that everyone had to buy an entire album just to get the one or two songs they actually wanted? That didn’t work out so well for them after Napster and other music sharing services made it impossible for them to force consumers to buy CDs. The TV industry is facing a similar situation right now and, like the music industry before it, it’s crawling into a shell and hoping technological progress just goes away. More →

Hulu Current Season Streaming

Hulu could lose its biggest advantage over Netflix if Time Warner has its way

Hulu could lose its biggest advantage over Netflix if Time Warner has its way

If there’s one reason to subscribe to Hulu over Netflix, it’s the ability to watch the latest episode of a TV show just hours after it airs. Streaming current seasons of shows has been one of Hulu’s biggest draws from the outset, but as talks are heating up between Hulu and Time Warner, the future of current-season streaming could be on the line.

How Time Warner and Fox could ruin Hulu just as it’s getting good

How Time Warner and Fox could ruin Hulu just as it’s getting good

I have been a Hulu subscriber for years but it’s only been in the last year or so that I’ve started enthusiastically recommending it to my friends. The reason for this is because Hulu is getting a lot more quality content, including original shows such as Casual and Difficult People, as well as acclaimed premium series such as FX’s Fargo. Add in the fact that Hulu just swiped a bunch of hit movies from Netflix and you have a service that’s very compelling in its own right and isn’t just an also-ran to Netflix anymore.

So with Hulu getting so much better, that must mean it’s time for the corporate bigwigs at Fox and Time Warner to ruin it. More →
