I haven't seen a music video in ages. MTV wasn't around when I grew up but I remember watching it in the mid eighties.
I was amazed the last time I was somewhere that had it on. There weren't any music videos playing.

I watch them every once and while but I have to get them on youtube or the MTV.com service for music vidoes. I do miss music videos though. I wish Pandora had the music videos running when you played the music.

They dumped music videos because there was no money in it though. It makes sense unfortunately.

I get the one in Rochester NY (31.2) picture quality sucks sound quality is not much better. Of course if the music videos are to someones liking or not is a matter of personal opinion. Between the quality and the actual videos I rarely can stand to watch it, it also has way to many commercials if someone is trying to watch it live.

But at least they do play music videos.

Thanks,

On a historical note, MTV was launched at 12:01 AM on Saturday, 1 August 1981 with this clip, "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles. Coming up on their 30th anniversary.

Of course, none of this has anything to do with Hulu Plus .

I record "From the Road" every Thursday, which features live performances. I rarely watch anything live anyway.

You do realize that Hulu Plus still has ads. It just offers a larger variety of content.

Yep... debatable on the larger variety.

Which is why I've never subscribed to it. Hulu without the commercials might be worth something. Hulu with LESS commercials just pushes me to the torrents or Netflix or DVDs.

Netflix and DVD's are ok if you don't want access to current season shows and torrents are OK if you don't mind violating copyright laws. I know people who have gotten cease and desist letters from their providers in relation to torrents they have downloaded. They can be tracked.

I'm hoping with this new update that all TiVo has to do is "flip a switch" and it will enable Hulu+.
The first thing I did with my five premieres after getting the new update was to see if it showed Hulu+ anywhere. But I did not see it.

At least one investor seems to think this is also the case. TiVo has their call next week and may do it then according to the post over at zatznotfunny.com.

I wonder if we will see Amazon and Hulu turned on at the same time.

I bet there is more hope for Hulu+ than Amazon Prime

At one point it was, but I don't know if it still is. It was on the older platforms though and limited content.

That stuff is still there, though it's definitely not the same as the recently launched "Crackle Channel" on Roku (which was the first I heard anything about Crackle).

Yeah, (the new) Crackle on the iPad is pretty darn sweet. I was also able to jailbreak my AppleTV (2nd gen,) install XBMC, and then install a Crackle plug-in. Navigation's a pain, but it does in fact work.

Cool I will have to check it out on the iPad. I wonder if it is even incorporated into the search on the HD UI. It isn't one of the providers you can disable so my guess is no.
