So I pay $9 a month for Showtime and I found over time I watched more on Showtime than HBO when I had cable. I'm not a GOT fan BTW. If HBO lowered Now's price to $9 a month I might consider it. But Time Warner is blowing it big time by trying to get shows delayed more than the next day. Again where do they get the CEOs for these companies? Whatever happened to "the customers is always right?" It seems we have the return of the robber barons (as if they ever went away).

I also have to mention that after months of never seeing a rebuffer on Hulu+, last night was terrible. These always happen near the top of the hour suggesting it's the net in general. Plus when this was happening on "Lucifer" well into the 9 PM hour I stopped, logged out of Hulu and back in again and it ran fine. So whatever server I got the first time was overloaded. This of course also works for Netflix and have done it numerous times when rebuffering occurs.

"American Crime" last night came in at well over a bitrate needed for 720p and "Lucifer" at around 4.3 Mbps. AC is a bit more indie and grainy but Lucifer looked great especially on the well lite outdoor scenes. Certainly not NF 5.8 quality as I when watching a "Z Nation" episode. Funny to watch AC's censoring words by blanking the screen when they are said. Why they bother on Hulu is beyond me. Just give us your Euro or Canadian export.

So the miniseries adaptation of 11 22 63 is going to be on Hulu; can you watch it at the free level or do you have to have the paid level??? Not really finding any info one way or another.

I'm doubting that Hulu will stream this for free - but you're right - there is no word on this one way or the other. It's going to be doled out on a weekly basis rather than allow for binge watching. Perhaps Hulu will allow the first episode to stream for free as has been done for other shows on other streaming channels.

Some lackluster reviews of 11.22.63 are starting to post on the internet.

Anyone else here having rebuffering problems and errors with Hulu? For months there was never a problem but in the last week or so they started showing up. Going to a Netflix stream no problem. Going to a VUDU HDX stream no problem. Checking broadband speed getting what I pay for and far above what is needed. Reading their Twitter support seems others are seeing the same thing. Same from Hulu users on some other sites. Many saying the same thing that there was no problem for months.

I hate contacting their support since they will want to your "reset your device to factory" which is not a solution especially if you are getting other streams just fine on your device.

Maybe there is a conspiracy. Maybe Time Warner is paying hackers to destroy Hulu?

Last time The Librarians refused to load on the Fire TV. Just sat there buffering for a long time then error out. On the 4th gen Apple TV it played fine.
