Today, Hulu announced a new commercial free service for $11.99 a month. This means there are essentially three different versions of Hulu for you to pick from if you are so inclined.
The first is the free version. Can’t be watched on a mobile device, tablet or streaming box. Has less content than the pay version and it also runs with ads.
The $7.99/month plan. You can watch on mobile, tablet and streaming devices, have a wider content library and it does still contain ads.
The $11.99/month version. Features the same content lineup but with the exception of 7 series from ABC and NBC runs without commercial interruption.
So the question I must ask myself, is $4 extra per month worth it for no commercial interruption? I say no commercial interruption because the 7 series that will still contain commercials are not shows I ever watch.
In yesterday’s post, I suggested that it might be a good idea for me to list all of the different things i am looking forward to over the next month. I reason that if I list all of those things each month it will serve as a reminder that I have positive things going on and perhaps doing this on a regular basis will help to provide stability to my mood. Besides, it is one new post a month for this blog.
The things I will list could be mondain to some people and to others it could be something that they are either not interested in or actually dreading. I’ll list each one and then talk about it briefly.
Last night I attended the premier of ‘Walt Before Mickey’ at our local theater. The movie has been playing at Disney in Orlando since Aug. 14 and had a premier in Kansas City last week. We got a premier because the owner of our local movie theater got to know the writers/producers of the film a couple of years ago.
The photo that serves as feature image for this post is of myself, my friends Scott and Duane along with writer/producer Arthur Bernstein and Armando Gutierrez who were in town for the show. You can see both men in the film with Armando playing the substantial role of Ub Iwerks. Arthur is seen playing the role of Frank L. Newman.
Yesterday was National Dog Day. I was completely unaware of this fact and that’s why I didn’t write anything about Ginny. I was surprised to learn that it was National Dog Day because Ginny has me conditioned to think that every day is National Dog Day. Actually, it would be more accurate to say that Ginny has me convinced that every day is National Ginny Day. Ginny’s 15th birthday is coming up next month and so I was planning to write more about her then. But in the meantime, enjoy the featured image of this post. The picture is about 14 months old and neither Ginny or I is too excited to be in it. That will not come as a shock to anyone who has read this.
