-Hulu has introduced a new commercial free version to compete with Netflix

-Users now have a choice: watch commercials for $7.99/month or upgrade to commercial free for $11.99/month

-Hulu has also dropped "Hulu Plus" as a name.

-Those EPIX movies that Netflix lost yesterday? Hulu picked them up.
