BlueCop Wrote:Hulu and Hulu+ have a good amount of content. I like Hulu+ because it expands the tv and movies library a good bit and you get 720p. Even though plus tv shows has shrunk a bit lately. You can access this in XBMC with the plugin. It is a cat and mouse game of them trying to shut us out though.
Amazon also has a ton of content. A subset of the media is free with an Amazon Prime subscription. The prime library is quite large though. You can purchase/rent things outside the prime library on the website. You can then access them in the My Library item in the amazon plugin. They might be implementing a new Flash Access DRM on some videos though that will make it impossible to decode the video with XBMC though.
Free Cable is also a plugin option for Television shows. It accesses several united states based station sites. CBS shows are also available here. It is noticably missing from Hulu. CBS does have an agreement for hulu distribution in japan but not the United States yet. The advantage of the station sites over hulu is that they sometimes stream in 720p for free. NBC shows is an example. Now that 30 rock is not available in 720p on Hulu because it was dropped as a plus show. It is available on the NBC website in 720p though.
I would love to have HBO GO and EPIX HD movie streaming. They require a cable subscription currently. I got a free 2 week trial for epix and it has a decent movie library for streaming in 720p. it is around 3000 movies. They have around 64,000 in their database though and cycle new ones in every month or so. I wrote a plugin for it when I had the free trial. It need better cable log-in support though. It supports the Queue system on the site. You can also add/remove from the plugin.
remops: Supernatural is available in the Hulu plugin and the Free Cable plugin which uses the cw website. If you have hulu plus then you can watch it in 720p.
Bluecop this is what I wanted in starting this thread. Can you tell us where the Hulu addon zip is located and is it working on xbox? I forgot about the free cable it is a decent plugin and like you said CW is there. There is a Amazon plugin?
