“Hulu on Tuesday announced on its blog that partner Viacom would be pulling its content from the service, and noted that shows like ‘The Daily Show’ and ‘The Colbert Report’ would only be available through the beginning of next week. Though an inconvenience for Hulu users who had relied on the service’s subscription tools and new episode notifications, Hulu noted that most of the content that’s being pulled will still be available back on ComedyCentral.com.”
Viacom’s Departure From Hulu Comes with a Bite
2010-03-03 Multimedia, AV 8 Comments
Being one of the vast majority of people who live outside of the USA, I’ve never been able to watch Hulu anyway.
…You can still watch both shows on Comedy Central’s own website. Viacom’s a massive media conglomerate, though, so I’m sure that other shows are coming off of Hulu as well… It’s just odd that everyone seems to be making a big deal about these two shows in particular. Perhaps the quality is worse on comedycentral.com? Or is it all just about convenience?
