OK, now I have to come clean about my viewing preferences so that someone can advise me what would make sense. We don't have tv, just the computer. Currently, I watch all my shows on "Hulu" and as long as I keep up with them I don't run into the Hulu Plus issue - seems like once they've been available for a couple of weeks they become Hulu Plus. Is this going to change, do you think? Ok, so, ahem. The shows I watch regularly are: Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Brothers & Sisters, Desperate Housewives, Office, (as you can see, I'm stuck in a time warp), Modern Family. I will sometimes watch the talent type shows, but not regularly. The streaming on Netflix has mostly been for Family Movie night, and mostly bcs I forgot to send in the DVD that I got from them. I don't use it to stream shows.
Might make sense to stick with Hulu and upgrade Netflix to two DVDs at a time. Also, we are moving to a place next month where I won't have to go 15 minutes into town to pick up my mail at the Post Office, so hopefully my return rate will improve!
