Fox Soon to Begin Delaying Online Availability of All Programs on Hulu and Fox.com Unless You’re a Subscriber
Wait 8 days for ‘Glee’ and ‘Family Guy?’
The Wall Street Journal reports that in the middle of August Fox will begin delaying availability of all its programming on Hulu and Fox.com for 8 days unless you’re a “subscriber”. If you want to watch earlier than that you will need to subscribe to Hulu Plus or be able to authenticate you’re a subscriber of a participating pay TV service. The rub is that of traditional pay TV providers, currently only Dish Network has signed up with Fox, though Fox says it is talking to other providers and hopes to have more on-board before the fall season begins.
