  1. Damian Rollison Says:

    Surely this comes as no surprise — I wonder if Hulu’s corporate sponsors are listening, or more importantly, whether Rupert Murdoch is listening. On the other hand, I’m a little shocked at the naivete of the 33% who think all content should be free of advertising. Just about everything that comes to mind when I think of “internet content” is funded by advertising.
