I just had the most delightful Hulu Experience

It is possible that this is not something new, but this was my personal first experience with it.

I just watched The Daily Show and The Colbert Report on Hulu and, for both shows, I was given the option to play just one 2min+ commercial at the beginning then watch the full episode with no further commercials.

I played the long opening ad, opened up another tab and caught up on some Facebooking, then watched the show ad-free.

It was awesome.

I love it when I get that choice too.

It’s not new, and I love it.

And ad-supported programming execs are shedding a single tear…

(I switch tabs too, with the added technique of turning off the sound until the show begins)
