I am not one that would sit in front of a TV for hours on end. With that in mind, I want better control over when I will watch the shows that I want to watch. This is where Hulu comes in. I pay for their basic plan (without live TV), and with that, I get to watch the shows anytime the next day. This means if a night has 4 TV shows, I could watch two a day, and still be able to catch up on what I want to watch. For that, it is worth the $10/month.
