Bummer. I was in your shoes a handful of weeks ago. I didn’t realize I’d missed the few episodes until my sister talked about it since Hulu does nothing, nothing at all to inform subscribers their shows have been yanked…(Hulu really should inform people of this).
Its not really cable thats doing this, its the networks. And by networks I mean all of them including the “cable” networks like USA and A&E. They all see the writing on the wall and understand that the internet is rapidly becoming the primary pipeline into peoples homes for entertainment. The networks are all trying to position themselves to take advantage of that. Thats why you are seeing things like CBS having their own pay to watch streaming service. They want exclusivity so that they can glean as much profit as possible. They cant easily compete with services that provide multiple network streams so they are starting to slowly pull stuff back from netflix and hulu and such.
Well it’s both right? Cable makes it generally unpleasant to be a cable customer. The networks keep jacking up the prices claiming quality content costs money, which is true, but there’s no way I am giving CBS 5 dollars a month for a broadcast channel. It’s just not happening.
