How studios continue to screw up: Hulu & Boxee

Link: How studios continue to screw up: Hulu & Boxee

Boxee is an awesome piece of cross-platform software that you run on a computer you want to use like a TV. It lets you easily watch shows from Hulu, from network websites, from Netflix, MTV, Comedy Central, with a slick TV-ish interface.

And now Hulu has been forced by its “content providers” (the studios) to sever its ties to Boxee.

I don’t think anyone will write a better article about this fight between content providers and consumers — and its inevitable outcome — than Marc Hedlund.
