Hulu is a blessing. The site gives you a lot of different shows you can catch up on or discover. Yes, there is Hulu Plus, but a lot of people can get by just by using the unpaid version. From The Simpsons, Family Guy, Saturday Night Live, The Daily Show, or The Colbert Report, Hulu will usually have new episodes up by the next day. The service won't let you watch an entire season of big name shows since that's what Hulu Plus is for, but you shouldn't be watching that much television anyway. Breaking Bad is over.
Create a free Hulu account and subscribe to available shows to get updates when new episodes are available. Or get Hulu Plus for $7.99.
