Hulu & TV.com battling it out

Hulu & TV.com battling it out

NBC and News Corp partners have recently pulled all of their content off of the newly relaunched TV.com website. These companies participate in a joint venture with the website Hulu.com, which until recently was the most popular online destination for watching full TV episodes and films (legally).

After CBS relaunched the TV.com website in January with more content, more social features and other new site options, the site enjoyed a 263% increase in unique visitors, overtaking Hulu.com’s traffic numbers.

Is the content removal from TV.com a direct response from Hulu owners due to the surging popularity of TV.com? It certainly appears that way. This may just be the start of a legal TV streaming website war. At the very least it should be interesting battle to watch play out. We’ll be staying tuned and reporting on future updates.

  1. Exactly how is Tv.com and Hulu alike? Hulu provides you the chance to see the episodes again where as TV.com does not. To me TV.com is worthless. If I wanted to know what the episode titles were I would just use imdb.
