Netflix vs. Hulu Plus: Who best fits your video streaming needs?

The simple version is this: Netflix has a larger archive, but Hulu Plus has more of the new TV shows. […] If you’re interested in the best quality stream, and you’ve got the hardware to do it, Netflix will offer the best experience. Through the PlayStation 3 and a handful of other supported devices, Netflix will stream in 1080p with surround sound audio. You have to have the right hardware, and you’ll only get this higher quality connection if Netflix automatically detects that your Internet connection is fast enough to handle it, but in those situations the difference between Netflix and Hulu is clear. – Russell Holly,
