Are The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Quantico gone from Hulu?

Or is my search-fu search-poo?

No, they're gone. :-(

At least The Flash still has the show logo if you do a search for it.

More like CW is following the CBS approach of making it's content exclusive to their app, and stopped using streaming services like Netflix and Huluu.

I don't any of those, but it still pisses me off when they do that.

Ah well, another reason to get your favorite shows on DVD when you can.

Sorry man! I know how annoying it is.

Actually, CW just decided to take more money from Netflix to give CW shows to Netflix exclusively for prior seasons. They're still on free with commercials on the CW App, so not really different from free with commercials on Hulu. Though I did get weird skipping once or twice per episode with a half second black screen, and lots of freezes, so CW might have some technical hiccups in their app for now.

Yup, Netflix bought the exclusive rights to those shows making so they will be released as a full season mere days after the finale.


With the CW shows going off Hulu, and there movie selection largely being identical to Amazon Prime, I will probably cut my subscription at the end of the month. Just subscribed to Shudder to fill the hole in the diminishing movie selection on Netflix, and I can't justify 4 streaming service subscriptions.

I just got hooked on American Horror Story, so I'm sticking with Hulu.

Also, I still hate Netflix after their b**~+$!+ they tried to pull in their red envelope days.

AHS is actually on both netflix and Amazon Prime as well. No reason to pay for Hulu just for that if you have either of the others.

Makes sense for Netflix and CW to ride off the success of Marvel's series.

(Honestly though, I'm still astonished that people pay money for network television with commercial interruption.)


Yeah, CBS took away the CW shows to make them available on their on streaming service. I'll probably subscribe to it in May just to watch the new Star Trek series then drop it. Though from what I'm hearing about the new ST series I'm a little iffy on even 6 bux a month.

No thanks, Hulu has a lot more than that, also, I've been watching Hulu since it started, and overall, I've been quite happy with it over the years.

Plus, I hate Netflix. :-)


Netflix has its issues, but it has more wildlife shows than Hulu, so I stick with it.

I'm also debating about the CBS service purely just for Star Trek. In addition, I'm also wondering if it's worth it considering what I've heard about the new Star Trek already.

Only the idea that Meyers (I think it's the same one who was involved with STII, III, IV, and I think VI) is involved and a few others has kept me on board.


I'll need a lot more from a streaming service than a single show for me to invest in it.

I am actually just increasingly annoyed at how spread out everything is. It's one thing when it's channels: at least if I have a cable subscription I get a ton of them. But now that more and more original stuff is going on the streaming services, I find myself needing to purchase effectively individual channels for just one or two shows.

Considering how fast the cable-cutting movement is growing, what we're seeing is an inevitable development.

I wonder if folks will stay loyal or just start sub-hopping. This month Hulu, next month Netflix. HBO for a month, than showtime, then TrumpTV....lol just kidding :)

Nicholas Meyer made a statement regarding fans of Star Trek who are not really thrilled by the new show and praising shows like "Star Trek: Continues" saying "Fans don't know what's best for them." That really rubbed me the wrong way and it makes me almost not want to watch it. They're also seriously "reimagining the alien races, changing their appearances drastically" according to one source working on the show.

Honestly, if they make the alien species more alien I wouldn't mind.

Sort of did that this summer, subscribing for HBOnow and cancelling it in August. Would have added a Showtime Hulu subscription to catch up on Penny Dreadful but then it was cancelled and showed up on netflix anyway.

They've done it before. TOS Klingons vs TNG Klingons.

Having lived through generations of fan rage, I'd have to say that Meyers has a point. Keep in mind though he is speaking for a franchise that's paid him in the past and is continuing to pay then in the future, so he has to speak for their corporate interests, which are heavily vested in not having their ownership claims to the property, nor their viewing numbers diluted. And many fans of the indie productions have been bleating loud noises of boycotting CBS's show for the indie productions. This is a sensitive issue given that for the first time, a Star Trek series will only be available on a subscription service.

As far as reimagining the alien races, I don't think anyone today will claim that doing so to the Klingons was a mistake. Gene Roddenberry held Trek to a ridiculous standard that the actors in any alien race had to remain recognizable despite the prosthetics that were applied to them, this put in a major limiting factor on alien design.

I cut my cable cord. I subscribe to Netflix, Hulu (w/Showtime add-on), Amazon Prime, and CBS All Access. I watch them via a Roku, so I also added the new free CW app.
