At the same time, Hulu Plus is getting rolled out. With Hulu Plus, you can watch full seasons and enjoy many programs in high definition and on mobile devices. Combine that with free over-the-air television for news and major sports, and you have the makings of credible alternative to cable television for lighter TV watchers.
Hulu Plus is $9.99 monthly and Netflix's streaming plan is $9. That means $18.99 for the two combined - a pretty reasonable price for so much content. But what's missing is the integration. One user interface, one program guide, one way to find what you want and then watch it. Hence the opportunity for Google TV. Integrated and simplified, it could prove that even on TV, search is the killer app.
