Most Netflix users prefer to watch streaming videos on a TV screen while most Hulu users prefer a computer screen

Video streaming has become a convenient and increasingly popular way of watching movies and TV shows in the U.S., but how users watch their favorites varies across service to service.

A recent Nielsen survey has found that Netflix subscribers and Hulu users both view video streaming in different ways, despite being similar services. After conducting 12,000 online interviews in March 2011, Nielsen found that most Netflix users watch their videos on a TV screen via a game console while a majority of Hulu users watch their videos on a computer.

Interesting.

HTPC + 60" TV takes care of either quite well for me. biggrin.gif

Two things make me think about this trend.
1. Hulu used to be free which is why I use it and continue to use it compared to Netflix on the computer.
2. Hulu plus doesn't seems to be on a lot of other devices besides on the computer.

If Hulu plus was on Boxee Box I would buy it.

Hulu is still free. Hulu plus is not free.
