  2. 2. The name Hulu comes from two Mandarin Chinesewords, húlú ( 葫芦 / 葫蘆 ), "calabash; bottle gourd",and hùlù ( 互录 / 互錄 ), "interactive recording"
  3. 3. NameNameIn Mandarin, Hulu has two interesting meanings, eachhighly relevant to our mission. The primary meaninginterested us because it is used in an ancient Chineseproverb that describes the Hulu as the holder ofprecious things. It literally translates to "gourd," and inancient times, the Hulu was hollowed out and used tohold precious things. The secondary meaning is"interactive recording." We saw both definitions asappropriate bookends and highly relevant to themission of Hulu
  4. 4. FeaturesFeaturesHulu distributes video on its own website and syndicates its hosting toother sites, and allows users to embed Hulu clips on their websites. Inaddition to NBC, ABC and Fox programs and movies, Hulu carriesshows from networks such as Current TV, ION Television, USANetwork, Bravo, Fuel TV, FX, NFL Network, Speed, Big Ten Network,Syfy, Style, Sundance, E!, G4, Versus, A&E, Oxygen and onlinecomedy sources such as Onion News Network. Hulu retains betweenthirty and fifty percent of advertising revenue generated by the showsit distributes.In November 2009, Hulu also began to establish partnerships withrecord labels to host music videos and concert performances on thesite, including EMI in November 2009,and Warner Music Group inDecember 2009.
  5. 5. In early March 2010, Viacom announced that it was pulling two of thewebsites most popular shows, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, offHulu. The programs had been airing on Hulu since late 2008. A spokesmanfor Vivendi noted that "in the current economic model, there is not thatmuch in it for us to continue at this time. If they can get to the point wherethe monetization model is better, then we may go back." In February 2011,both shows were made available for streaming on Hulu again.
  6. 6. Hulu on TVHulu on TVSince Hulus inception, consumers have been able to watch Hulu ontheir TVs by connecting a computer with a streaming capable videocontroller to the TV via HDMI or other connection. Additionally, theHulu Plus service, fully launched in November 2010, allows first-partyaccess to Hulu from a variety of Blu-ray players, Internet-connectedtelevisions, iOS devices, gaming consoles, and set-top boxes.In late June 2010, Hulu announced that a version of the servicewould be available to the iTunes App Store for the iPad, iPhone andiPod Touch running iOS version 4 or higher. Viewing the content onHulu, however, requires a subscription.In November 2010, Orb Networks announced the Orb TV box, whichstreams Hulu on the TV for free when used in conjunction with acomputer and a smartphone
  7. 7.

  10. 10. Ease of UseEase of UseOne of the biggest highlights of using Hulu is just how simple andeffective the site design is. The creators of Hulu have made itsupremely easy to find what you want and play it the way you like.The site has a very clean aesthetic, no background colors or imagesto mar the pristine simplicity.Hulu uses simple screenshots to represent videos and groups theminto columns. When you first visit the site, there is a large banner thatscrolls through simple advertisements for new videos. There areupdated lists of the most popular and the highest rated videos, soyou can keep up with what other people are watching. When you’relooking for a specific show, you can search by name or you can alsolook at an alphabetical list of all the shows in Hulu’s library.
  11. 11. Another thing that makes Hulu so easy to use isthe video player. It operates directly in your webbrowser using flash player technology. This isnice because many other Internet TV Servicesrequire you to use a proprietary video playerthat you must download and install.
