I am thinking about cutting off our cable and only having internet. We never watch tv unless its the bachelor, which is on normal tv, or if we are watching Netflix. So… Which is better? Or should I just get both?
ETA: How much do you pay a month for internet if that is all you have? I see $45 for 20Mbps…I kinda feel like that is alot! lol

@jesssamesssa: We’re in Canada and don’t get access to Hulu, so all we have is Netflix. I would recommend it.

@jesssamesssa: I subsrcribe to Netflix, and have no problems or qualms with it. At one time I subsribed to both, because Hulu offered shows I wanted that Netflix did not, or visa versa, but then ended up cancelling Hulu all together. I find that if one offers a show the other does not, the other one will pick it up EVENTUALLY.

@jesssamesssa: It depends on what’s important to you. We cut off cable when we moved in July. Until THIS WEEK we just had hulu and Amazon Prime on our Roku.
You can watch most shows the day after they air on your laptop with basic (free) Hulu. Hulu Plus is needed if you want to watch on a tablet, phone, Roku or internet enabled tv. If you want to see shows as they air, Hulu is the way to go. If you don’t care and are willing to wait for the whole season to be released, you can just use Netflix.
We added Netflix this week because my sister insisted I watch Orange Is The New Black. 😛 It is nice, though, to have all the backlog of shows there. Kind of like watching reruns when there’s nothing else on tv. We certainly had times when we “ran out” of shows on hulu.

Netflix. People complain about it having a ton of crap, but SO and I always find something to watch.
Hulu is free on the computer for most shows except for the most recent episodes. If you want to pay to watch on other devices and have the most recent episodes right away and still deal with ads, then pay for it. I personally would not.
There are also other places on the internet to watch shows for free. The network sites themselves, torrents, etc.

@MexiPino: This. We also cancelled cable when we moved. That shit is too expensive!
Hulu has current shows and episodes, netflix does not. I don’t think their movies are that great either. I love Pretty Little Liars and I’m so pissed Hulu cancelled this season. Netflix still isn’t even showing LAST season. I basically only watch it on the weekends when I have nothing to do and it’s old shows or episodes I’ve missed seasons ago.

@jesssamesssa: Both because Hulu is free!

Netflix. Once you’re able to watch something without ads, it’s never the same again.

You should add a poll.
BOTH. Definitely both. If you like watching current shows, then Hulu allows you to do that. It’s really not that pricey. I think we pay $17/month total for our TV/movie streaming.
We pay about $60 for internet, but we are also gamers, so it’s fine with us. Internet is much more important than cable, hands down.

Netflix! The commercials on Hulu Plus confuse me – we pay for it!

@MissHarleyBlue: OMG!!! PLL was my one epic loss when we ditched cable! LOL It was on regular Hulu for a while but they would only show the most recent ep and I missed a couple and so that was it- cause you can’t miss anything on that show!

I have both because we like the convenience of having some shows the day after they air on Hulu Plus but we also like being able to watch whole seasons of shows on Netflix. Netflix also has a better movie and documentary library. We also purchased an HDMI cable for our laptop so we can stream online content (You Tube, How I Met Your Mother, etc…) directly on our TV.

We have both and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Netflix is amazing for binge watching old shows and watching movies, but if you ever want to watch currently airing shows Hulu is the best choice. They’re only about $8/month each so I see no harm in having both.

We have Netflix and Amazon prime. I use Amazon for most of my online purchases anyway so it’s a win win for us. I also use Google play and have earned tons of free movies and tv shows through Google opinions. My mom uses a roku and loves it but I have also heard great things about Apple tv.
We pay $40 per month for internet, highest cable speed and unlimited. Some companies now are limiting how much data you can use without throttling.
