Hulu is ending its free streaming service and moving to a subscription only model. By no coincidence, it's also expanding its partnership with Yahoo, who will be launching Yahoo View, an ad-supported TV streaming site.
View will feature the five newest episodes of shows from ABC, NBC, and Fox, among others -- eight days after the original air date. Also available: day-after clips and full seasons of anime shows and Korean dramas.
"For the past couple years, we've been focused on building a subscription service that provides the deepest, most personalized content experience possible to our viewers," Hulu senior VP and head of experience Ben Smith explained in a statement. "As we have continued to enhance that offering with new originals, exclusive acquisitions, and movies, the free service became very limited and no longer aligned with the Hulu experience or content strategy."
