Hulu
I suspect that Hulu could have fared much better in this survey -- and, indeed, would be selling many more memberships and taking away more market share from Netflix -- if it didn't insist on showing ads to paid members.

Sure, they have a more "elite" level of membership now that gets rid of ads if you pay even more, but I think that consumers see this as nickel-and-diming.

Re: Hulu
@Joe I'm a consumer of streaming digital content. I think Hulu is taking the wrong approach with ads. I don't want to see ads at any paid level. Paying for fewer ads isn't appealing at all.

Netflix Price Change
I could quickly recall hearing in the news about Netflix price change. I do not have more details though. But I am wondering if at all that would have any impact to Netflix dominance position going forward.

Netflix's Dominance
Netflix topping the list does not surprise me. It's kind of obvious. I personally belong to the crowd that use Netflix extensively.

Re: Hulu
Hulu may soon fare a bit better - the WSJ just announced that they will be adding On Demand content along with streaming video feeds.  You should be able to access: ABC, ESPN, Disney Channel, Fox News, FX and Fox''s national and regional sports channels, and more.  $40 bucks a month.

Three Cheers For Netflix
The results of this poll don't surprise me at all. Netflix, once a DVD-by-mail company, has evolved with the times and never stopped coming up with great ideas. It is also reportedly a great company to work for because of its great benefits for employees, which is another reason it is probably so successful. So, kudos to Netflix!

Re: Hulu
@vnewman, 


I am interested to learn more about the on demand content, I haven't heard anything about that yet.  At $40 a month I think it would not be any better than having Hulu and Sling or Vue, but maybe there is something in their that makes it worth that price.  Never the less, I love all this competition that is being brought about by cord cutters.

I'm shocked that netflix is in the league from amazon because amazon is my favorite website to buy things  and ebay also.
