NEW YORK (AP): Hulu is dropping the free TV episodes that it was initially known for as it works on an online television service to rival cable TV.
Hulu said Monday that free episodes – typically the most recent four or five episodes from a show’s current season – will be gone from the site within a few weeks. But you can still watch for free. The episodes are now on Yahoo .
While Hulu started as a free site, free video has become more difficult to find after Hulu launched a subscription version in 2010. They’re not available on Hulu’s mobile apps or streaming-TV devices, just on Hulu.com from a traditional computer. Hulu says relatively few are watching the free videos. The company plans to launch an online TV service next year.
