This morning, a new video sharing and distribution platform owned jointly by FOX and NBC was launched. It is in its Beta launch and it is called Hulu.com. FOX and NBC plan to air current hit shows and episodes from television like Prison Break, the Simpsons, Heros, and The Office, Arrested Development, Miami Vice, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Each of these networks has started to pull their content from Youtube in anticipation of this launch.
At first glance, this looks to be a very cool video sharing platform with great enhancements to usability and features when compared to other video sites out there today. However, it is clear that the content is limited at least at the moment.
