Hulu has announced on their online blog that they plan expansion into Japan later this year. This will be the first international expansion done by Hulu. Hulu has still not announced whether they will offer “non-commercial” plans or if there has been any offers to their “for sale” sign. Whatever the case, I think streaming content with commercials is a bad thing if you are paying for the service. No to mention when a company is so pro-active at blocking their free, non-Hulu Plus, content on every new tablet device that comes into the market.
