FYI– Hulu.com now has a channel where anime fans can watch Naruto, Death Note, and Mushi-shi free, legally online.’ ‘ If you see someone on the internet terminals watching these shows on YouTube or other websites you can share this legal way of watching the shows.
I’m a fan of Hulu.com. Linda Braun mentioned it previously when it was still in Beta. Over the past year Hulu has grown, as have the minds of many studio executives. Hulu has worked with studios to allow anyone to watch TV episodes and movies online for free. Some of the studios limit the license to the three most recent episodes, meaning older episodes are not always available, but over all, I’m fond of this service and what it means for the future of entertainment.
On Tuesday Hulu released episodes of Naruto, Death Note and Mushi-shi. These are the shows I see my teens watching on Youtube and other websites on our internet computers. I’ve made an effort today to let the teens who love these shows know that they are available online, legally. I don’t know how long these episodes will be up, but I hope that if more anime fans watch the episodes on Hulu, instead of one of the fan created sites, that more studios will find ways to make anime available online as an alternative to all of the sites that offer pirated copies.
