The Hulu advertising-supported video service has announced that it will be streaming a number of Viz Media and Funimation titles, including Kiddy Grade. I cannot attest to the picture quality as I've heard of the site before and would have signed up to watch movies if it wasn't for the fact that you have to be in the US to do so. Currently when you visit the site from ourside the US you get the following message:
Sorry, currently our video library can only be streamed from within the United States
Hulu is committed to making its content available worldwide. To do so, we must work through a number of legal and business issues, including obtaining international streaming rights. Know that we are working to make this happen and will continue to do so. Given the international background of the Hulu team, we have both a professional and personal interest in bringing Hulu to a global audience.
If you'd like, please leave us your email address and the region in which you live, and we will email you when our videos are available in your area.
I would urge anyone else in a globally challenged situation so register their interest.
