Interesting way of doing things. Can you set up a US iTunes account without having a US address though?

Just subscribed to Hulu+

Very easy to set up
Good selection of TV shows (65+) (way better than Netflix)
Films OK (about as good as Netflix)
Streaming, much quicker than Netflix
Based on content for me, I'll be cancelling Netflix next month...sky next month too???

What I'd the coverage of up to date Shows like Alphas, Breaking Bad, Perception, Dexter in September, Fringe in September, etc. like?

Dexter doesn't show at all when I search the website link you posted?

Nor Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, plus a few other shows I watch. Not going to bother personally. Cheers for the info though.

OK, I got Hulu working by setting up an iTunes US account and using Unblock-US (despite comments on PocketLint saying it wouldn't work).

I can get Fringe, but only the last 5 episodes of season 4! What's the deal here? How long after the US network airing do episodes appear on Hulu?

Also, I can't believe I'm forced to watch MacDonalds ads!

Does Hulu have iPad/Phone apps as well? I don't have a US account but nothing is showing on the UK AppStore.

You can get the Hulu app for iPhone or iPad if you have an account with the US store. You won't see it on the UK store

Is this Hula thing supposed to show up on unbroken uk boxes?

Don't particulary want it, but if it should be there and its not, I want to know why!

It will show up if you have a US itunes account. It was the same for netflix before it officially launched in the UK.

Huluplus no longer working in uk (geo tagging) under a US iTunes account :-(

Real shame for non-US located customers

Cancelling subscription

I have it with us unblock and I've got a weeks trial.

I won't be continuing with it though, not enough content I enjoy

Netflix does look better than Hulu. Netflix US had Captain America (2011) this week. If you can switch between UK and US proxies you get an even greater range of material.
