I thought ad free service cost extra.
I don't see why Hulu didn't stream everything ad free from the start, I see it as being more of a determent to them at least in comparison to Netflix. A lot of people, like me, hate ads, so why use a streaming service that has them when another one has a chunk of the same shows, albeit not all the same shows (*sobs*), without ads?

Hulu should be ad free completely for subscribers, they're paying and they shouldn't have to be subjected to it. I don't know how Hulu's funding works, but is there some reason they decided to show ads from the beginning, were their licensing costs higher than Netflix's or something to the point of where they had to include 3 ads per episode? I'm just saying. I use it very rarely, and in the future probably won't subscribe to it, I'd rather wait longer for Netflix to get newer seasons if the price is lower, primarily because they don't have ads. I like a stream of seamless content without the disruption of lame and boring advertisements shouting in my face.

The ABC shows on Hulu still show adds even in ad free mode, but they are only at the start and end of the program and are usually trailers for movies or shows.

I just started a one week trial and am looking through the shows available. I already sub to CR, Funimation, and Netflix. With those, there is a ton of overlap and I probably won't end up keeping this Hulu sub. We'll see though. My annual funi sub is $60, Netflix is $144, and CR is $100. All together that is $304 annually. Adding another $144 sub would put me up to almost $450. That's a lot of money.
