hulu: Watch your favorites. Anytime. For free.


Hulu is an online video on demand service offering streaming video of TV shows and movies, primarily from NBC and FOX and their cable networks. Hulu has online social networking features, allowing users to clip videos, or parts of videos, from the site for posting in outside online communities. (Hulu has called this aspect video sharing, though users cannot upload content.)

Hulu video is higher quality than YouTube and other streaming video on the web, but lower than traditional television. For users, the service is free and ad-supported, with optional registration. Video downloading like Apple iTunes, for offline viewing, is not yet supported. Hulu also provides web syndication services for companies.

Justice Department Approves XM-Sirius Merger

The Justice Department gave approval on Monday to the merger of two rival radio networks, XM and Sirius, a marriage that would create a monopoly in satellite services now used by more than 17 million subscribers.

The merger is opposed by consumer groups and broadcasters who say it will force up prices and reduce the programming now available from the two competing systems.

XM, which has about nine million subscribers, offers play-by-play from Major League Baseball games. Sirius, which has about 8.3 million subscribers, broadcasts live play-by-play games of the N.F.L. and N.B.A., as well as live NASCAR races.

Shares of both companies rose on the approval. Shares of XM rose $1.85, to $13.79. Sirius rose 25 cents, to $3.15 a share.
