Hulu is an online video distribution service that shows episodes and other Lost related content.
HistoryHulu was launched in March 2008 after a year of planning and beta testing. Initially, Hulu only had NBC and FOX content. Disney, the parent company of the ABC network, bought an 27% stake in Hulu in April 2009 and Lost began to appear on Hulu that summer. () ()
Availability of Lost
As of February 27, 2010, all 106 episodes of Lost are available on Hulu. All Season 5 and Season 6 enhanced episodes are available as well as over 100 "clips" and the recap shows Lost: A Journey in Time, Lost: The Story of the Oceanic 6 and Lost: Final Chapter. The "clips" include video podcasts, Mysteries of the Universe (select episodes posted early), "Lost Untangled" episodes, as well as episode recaps and excerpts. Revenue is by commercial breaks on episodes, but the time dedicated to ads is much less than in traditional broadcast television, one commercial per commercial break as opposed to 1/3 of the hour being commercials.
