I guess you've heard of Hulu - the new video website launched by the NBC and News Corp just yesterday. Hulu lets users watch premium quality, full length videos of their favorite TV shows for free. And it's completely legal! The problem is that it's still in private beta - which means that you'll have to give them your email address and then wait till you get invited.
Well, guess what? I've figured out how to get into Hulu even if you do not have an invite! Here are the steps:
1. Sign up for the private beta on Hulu.com by giving your email.
2. Go back to the homepage and click the 'Forgot password' link.
3. Type in the same email address you gave for the private beta registration.
4. Check your email. You will find a mail from Hulu with a password.
5. Use the above email id and the new password to log onto Hulu!
6. This will take you to a registration screen where you can enter a user id and a new password.
7. And voila! You're inside Hulu :)
I guess its a small bug in their system and they'll probably fix it soon once the word gets out :). So hurry!!!
BTW, for those of you outside the US (like me), the videos don't work. I guess using a proxy might help, but I haven't tried it yet.
