Yes, I know about Hulu, it is an official site (belongs to ABC, correct me if I am wrong), which broadcast tv programs via webstreaming. Too bad it can only be accessed in the US. Youtube and Hulu are two different sites. Hulu is specialized in tv programs, while youtube is mainly used for any kind of videos by its users.

I used to love hulu! they have dvd quality movies, tv episodes including my favorite the 80's version of the incredible hulk- starring bill bixby.but now it wrecks my firefox browser;you tube is ok with out of print movies such as the bbc version of george orwells classic 1984- in black and white.plus you can connect with other users which you can't do on hulu.someone sent me a cool legos music video out of nowhere on youtube;thats what gives youtube the edge;despite a lot of foulmouthed morons on that site.

Youtube is for short clips and accessible all around the world. Hulu is for streaming TV episodes (a really nice facility) but available in the US only. Also, I hear that Hulu will soon be a paid service...but oh well, we can't access it anyway.
