You know it seemed like the big companies were starting to get it. Hulu has been a great step in the right direction, but yesterday the content providers that keep Hulu up and running made yet another bone head decision that continues to prove that they just don’t understand how the world is changing.
They have collectively decided that Boxee is some kind of threat to their networks, and will thus no longer allow their content on the service.
Hulu got in touch with Boxee to break the bad news, and as of Friday, Hulu will be gone from the Boxee service.
So even though Hulu is an ad-supported model, and all Boxee is doing is helping them get more viewers (with no share of ad revenue, mind you) they view the service as some kind of threat.
It’s really kind of pathetic.
