Hulu and The Daily Show

By Deane Barker on June 10, 2008

Game Over. Hulu Wins. They Have The Daily Show. And Colbert.: This should bolster Hulu quite a bit.

Because Hulu is now streaming full episodes of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report, from Comedy Central. No more Tivo. No more dealing with BitTorrent. I can just log in and watch the show in 480p, and that makes me very, very happy.

I love Hulu, I really do. And I desperately hope that the business model is working for them, because it’s working for me — the amount of ads is tiny compared to TV. I can live with it, so if NBC can too, then this is the beginning of a great relationship.

Ars Technica did a survey piece a couple weeks ago, and crowned Hulu the winner of the four major video offerings on the Web.

[…] the overall experience at Hulu is fantastic in comparison to the other network sites. Hulu employs the least amount of advertising and the largest actual area for video, but its true full screen and pop-out options really won us over.
