Online Entertainment: Hulu offers best choice

A. Cervantes, Staff Writer

Netflix typically tops the charts when it comes to entertainment apps where you can select from a variety of movies or TV shows. But there may be a better choice.  Believe it or not,  Hulu might take over, and here are some reasons.

“It has better movies than Netflix,” said Annalise Torres. Hulu has 86,000 episodes available which include new episodes as well. Every month Americans watch about 1.4 billion ads, but with Hulu Plus viewers endure fewer ads. Hulu is only available in the U.S. and Japan.

“I like the Fire Stick [Amazon TV] because I can listen to music on YouTube or Pandora,” said Gia Nieto. Music and movies are two things that really interest the majority of teens in our generation. Hulu has caught that vision and as a result, has won more and more subscribers. In 2015, Hulu made $860 million a year, and by the end of 2017, they are expected to make $8 billion.

Clearly, Hulu is the up and coming entertainment app. If you get your entertainment from online sources, Hulu is definitely worth checking out. Plus, it’s affordable, so what is there to lose?
