2500 Hulu Beta Invites up for Grabs

Hulu has come a long way from its genesis as a “YouTube killer” pie-in-the-sky idea earlier this year. It survived Om’s “NewCo Wreck Watch” to earn a mea culpa and a “brilliant” assessment from our acerbic founder. But the video site — which features mostly NBC and FOX TV shows in full-length streamable glory — is still only available to a limited group of U.S.-only testers (albeit with some back-door ways to experience its content).

Apparently all you have to do is go to this site and enter your email address. So what are you waiting for? Go check it out.
