A couple of days ago, I was having some fun watching the last episode of the Tonight Show hosted by Conan O’Brien using Hulu, however, I could not watch the entire episode. To my surprise today, the show has now disappeared off the Internet forever, thanks to NBC and Hulu.
The Conan O’Brien and NBC saga is well known, however, it is really sad that both NBC, and NBC owned Hulu pulled off the show from the Internet. All Things D reported about the removal and it is really sad to see the show scrubbed off the Internet.
I am a big fan of Hulu, and it does allow me to catch up with shows that I usually miss in the day, but doing something like this, which is more than monopolistic, is definitely not done. Agreed that you do own the rights to the show, but it is totally unjust to pull off something that the viewers would like to see.
Heading over to YouTube now, hope that they don’t pull off the Conan shows from there too.
