Just noticed,I think Hulu.com is charging for membership now. Used to be free. Good things just don'tlastdoit?:-)
As I said, trying to watch video with a dial-up connection doesn't work well, but for those who have high speed and want to watch things on Hulu, this download, endorsed by Kim Komando, might improve your experience. I haven't tried it but I have generally found her advice to be reliable.
