Hulu launches brand new features, shows and channels

By on


Not letting Joost get a foothold of its market share, Hulu – co-owned by NBC Universal and News Corporation – has launched several new features – including discussion forums, show recommendations and better queue management.

As well, they will be bringing out seventeen new topical channels including Fashion and Beauty, Food and Leisure, Comedy, Video Games and Home and Garden.

But the biggest news is that there will be many more videos being posted, thanks to the Fall Season. They have also struck a deal with FUNimation, Viz Media and Speed Racer Enterprises to bring anime into their already-growing 900 TV and Film Videos. Already up on the site right now are Naruto, Speed Racer, Death Note and Mushi-shi; with all of them having complete episodes of their series (or season run, for the case of Naruto). However, all of them will be the English Dubbed versions.

And if you think you can watch it now from Australia, you are sadly mistaken. The site is still US-only, but you can still view the pages. But with a bit of trickery and using a proxy, you may fool them to show you the full episodes.
