Question Which are you looking more forward to? Netflix vs Hulu+

A lot of people seem very anxious for Netflix support. While I certainly use the Netflix App on my PC Boxee the overall library that is available for streaming on Netflix is pretty sad.

I'm VERY interested in seeing functional Hulu+ support in Boxee. Hulu+ will gain 1 paying subscriber when that day comes!

Edit: Oops, meant to post this in Feature Request, mods please move this to wherever you feel is most appropriate. TY

I changed to poll and added Both as an option. Cause, I want both myself.

hopefully when hulu does the app they wont be asses about it like the hulu app on other devices is. On other devices the app will only let you watch hulu plus content, regular content is on included on the app.

It was stated by Avner at the launch that it will be HULU+ only. It had to be so or Hulu would not agree to let boxee users gain access. Lets not get into this debate here, yet again. That's already been whipped bloody in many a thread. I was just posting to clarify.

I set it as a poll when I created the message I'm not sure why that needed to be changed.

Please re-edit my poll as I seem to be unable to edit my poll options and REMOVE both. The whole point of my poll was to find out which people are looking forward to most, one or the other. I also want both, but care more for Hulu+, personally.

I don't think it's cool to change someone else's polling options based on your own preference.

The poll is flawed, because it makes an assumption that the voter wants one of them to begin with.

The BOTH option is valid, but doesn't directly fit the "vs/or" question - it just means one wants them both equally. NEITHER is my vote however - I don't care about either of them, equally.

Definitely, UNCOOL to change someone else's poll.
And NO you can not "want" both the MOST. I think a NEITHER choice would be informative but if you don't have an answer to a poll, then DON'T answer.
Create your own poll if you have a problem with someone else's.

I can see the benefit of having a "Neither" option as you are mentioning. I admit my poll assumes you want one or the other, if not both. However, I figured folks would just not answer if it didn't apply to them.

Both was grossly out of place given the context as someone previously mentioned you cannot want both "most".

Thanks to the mod who finally fixed it.

Hulu is going nowhere fast, their selection for hulu plus downright sucks, and as far as I know their non hulu+ stuff wont be available to hulu+ devices. Correct me if I'm wrong there..
