Nielsen Survey Reveals How People Prefer to Use Hulu vs. Netflix
While this might not be too surprising it seems that most people use Netflix to watch movies, and most people use Hulu to watch TV shows. What is interesting is that more people consume Netflix on their TV via a console or other device where as most people use Hulu directly on their computers.
According to the survey's results, half of all Netflix subscribers watch movies/TV shows on a TV screen using a game console such as the Wii, PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. Netflix users who watch videos on a computer make up 42 percent of subscribers, and 14 percent connect their computers to the TV.
Hulu users, on the other hand, mostly use their computers to watch videos. In fact, 89 percent of them do so. Twenty percent of Hulu users connect their computer to the TV, and only 8 percent use game consoles to watch their programs.
So how are you using Netflix and Hulu?
