Hands free TV

I've been looking around for ways to watch TV on a computer for free. It's much easier for me to work a computer than a TV. The other day I found Hulu, a beta site that is issuing invitations for people (U.S. only) to watch full length TV programs. There are limited commercial interruptions during the shows.

Here's how it works: you email them to be put on a list to get an invitation. The wait seems to vary. Right now I don't have much time to watch anyhow, but will let you know how long it takes for me to get an invite.

WOW! So cool!! I too have massive issues with the TV (I call my sister at college "I broke it again, I'm getting the blue screen of death" and the she says, "Only computers get blue screens of death, push this and this and this then that" and Voila! TV!) but can do just about anything with a computer.

Thanks for this info!

Katrin- Yes very cool. I was excited when I found it. Some of the sites only have clips (not full length shows) and although you can find network sites with full length shows it's great to have a place where they're put together.
