Hulu or Netflix

We have had Netflix for quite a while now. Last night we signed up for Hulu because I wanted to see Season 2 of Downton Abbey and it wasn't on Netflix (they only have Season 1).

Now I am wondering, do any of you have Hulu and do you enjoy it more than Netflix? Or do any of you have both? It really isn't that expensive, but I am not sure if it is worth paying for both services.

So I am wondering what the opinions are on these two services and which one (or both) that people enjoy the most.
Thanks

We have and use both. Netflix is used more, but Hulu is great for the current shows. We are not home to watch all those shows live mostly. We also haven't had cable in over a year and don't miss it at all! We use an antenna and Netflix and Hulu and always have something to watch when we want.

I use both too, for the same reason.

We have Netflix and Amazon prime. Amazon prime gives us free two day shipping as well as streaming video. We don't use Hulu because we DVR all the shows we watch. If we decide to try to watch a show that's already a few seasons in, we watch what we can on Netflix and the rest on Amazon, although Amazon may charge extra.

Netflix also doesn't have many current movies (same with Hulu) and we can get those through Amazon Prime (sometimes). But again, they may cost a little extra.

Netflix is better for movies (In 2016 they'll have Disney's entire library on streaming ), and Hulu is better for shows. Sign up for a Hulu trial and see if you like it.

Both - I gave up cable a year and a half ago and have plenty to watch with the combination of the two
I have almost given up Hulu a couple of times but I keep renewing to watch my current TV favorites - OUAT and Grimm - I just got hooked on Chicago Fire over the holidays.
