Yesterday, I mentioned how online media portal Hulu.com added Martin Yan’s Hong Kong to their repertoire. Today, I figured that I might as well expand on that post just a bit. If you don’t spend a lot of time on the computer, and/or don’t try and stay plugged in to the “what’s happening at an internet near you,” it is quite possible that the name Hulu is nothing more than a head-scratcher.
The joint-venture startup launched just shy of three-years ago and currently houses thousands upon thousands of hours of television. Unlike some of those other sites offering free television programming, Hulu has several major advantages. Most notably, it’s legit … so everything is super duper high quality.
The site offers commercial-supported streaming video of TV shows and movies from TV stations like NBC, Fox, ABC and many other networks and studios. Of particular interest to ya’ll is the website’s Food & Leisure channel. There you’ll find all shows from the likes of Paula Deen, Bobby Flay, and Gordon Ramsey (who doesn’t love to see Gordo go ape all over some moronic excuse for a restaurateur – aka Kitchen Nightmares). Meanwhile, Bravo TV shows like Top Chef are available for your viewing pleasure, as is the Food Network’s Good Eats with Atlantan Alton Brown, and the PBS show Diary of a Foodie.
Even if food related television isn’t your favorite, Hulu is definitely worth a visit. The site is just loaded with great stuff. Alright folks, until we eat again. Meanwhile, any of you who actually have employees working under you – make a beeline for your IT Department and ask them to block the website … otherwise, you’re gonna have some ravenously unproductive people in your office in about 30-minutes.
