We all hate the ad breaks and with gadgets like Tivo we can just fast forward but what close to online tv streams? Theres no way around the ad breaks and thats not making viewers happy.
However the online tv website has been experimenting during the last year with single ads and interactive ads allowing viewer engagement and its working.
Instead of the long drawn out ad breaks plagueing TV viewers, only one advertisment is beam of light during each break on Hulu. And less ads make them more memorable to the viewer which allows them to charge a higher premium.
Hulu chief executive Jason Kilar said:- ‘The notion that less is more is absolutely playing out on Hulu. This is benefiting advertisers as much as it is benefiting users.
Hulu has seen steady growth, supply 142 million streams to 6.3 million unequaled viewers during the month of September and is now the sixth most popular online website in the USA. Even overtaking major players such as ESPN, CNN, MTV and Disney websites. It does however assuage chase after behind the mighty YouTube, which shows 20 times more television receivers than any other website. Hulu is also still behind sites Yahoo, Fox, MSN amongst others.
The website which is conjointly owned by NBC worldwide and News Corporation isnt yet fruitful, it has gained praise from many ad? executives.
A big gene on its popularity comes when looking at the quantity of ads. Comedies like Family Guy and The Office average ogdoad minutes of ads when aired on TV. Hulu shows only 2 minutes of ads during the same shows.
We moot that a mortify amount of advertising is the right thing because that’s going to drive atypical results for marketers,â€Â Mr. Kilar said. He said the site had no plans to add-on the advertising load.
IF you are looking enviously at that 52 inch titan HDTV in the electrical shop but cannot make out the price then good news is here.
The sterling(a) drops in price were found in the large screen models, as an workout world wide prices for 52 inch LCD TV’s which is the most popular size dropped 30 percent since September 2007. 20 inch models however only fell by 4 percent.
So if your looking to buy a new TV is now the time to do it? Given previous history the answer is to wait it out as prices will only continue to fall. And of course with the current credit crunch and impending recession they may drop faster and bigger.
Of course when you get that monster screen mounted on your wall, dont forget to hook up your PC to it and start watching all the distinguished free internet tv.
