Hulu Plus or Netflix?

We don't have cable or satellite-good old fashioned antennae via box on tv but we're paying for Netflix now. But trying to decide if we should switch to Hulu Plus instead-only want one or other due to cutting back on expenses.

Does anyone have one vs the other? If so which would you choose? I'm leaning more towards Hulu due to the tv shows I like that are probably on it. Tips? Thanks

Netflix. From what I hear Hulu only does TV shows. Netflix does both tv and movies. I pay 7.99 a month for instant netflix. We can access it from our phones, ipad, dvd player and kindlefire. oh and computer lol

We have both! Netflix for movies and older TV shows, and Hulu Plus for new and older TV shows :)

I have both. If you went with only one, I would go with Netflix.

I've never tried either, but I'd like to know too. I'm sick of paying way too much to Directv...

Thanks! We're going to stick with Netflix & maybe go get a Roku device that will allow us to get Hulu & other internet channels thru the tv so I don't have to sit at my computer to watch regular Hulu. If nothing else Netflix does allow us to temporarily stop it if we want to try Hulu Plus for a bit.

We have hulu plus and Netflix streaming.  With those plus the local channels from the digital TV we are satisfied.  :-)

They don't only have old movies. They have a lot of stuff that comes out as soon as it is on DVD. They also have TONS of shows. You must have had it a long time ago.
