Hulu's Autoplay

I like to leave the TV on while I'm doing things around the house, and even when I'm sleeping. It's basically my solution to being alone all the time - kind of like having "company" around the house - but it's also just background noise. With Netflix, you have to get up and click "Next" for every video. With Hulu, you have your queue, but if you really want to watch what is in there, you don't want to be doing other things or sleeping.

Enter: Autoplay.

I accidentally left Autoplay engaged the other day and was pleasantly surprised by the selections Hulu pulled for me, time and again. Sure, there were some dogs here and there, but for the most part, I found some great entertainment I wasn't even aware existed!

Simply turn Autoplay on beneath the main window, then choose a single video to watch (clip, movie, or full episode). Hulu will automatically choose the next video and start playing after the first one ends. After a while, a message will pop-up, asking if you want to stop viewing.
