Hulu, a on demand website, provides FREE movies and shows with limited commercial interruption. My husband and I have not had a television since we got married (by choice) and we like that Hulu provides us to watch shows like Burn Notice and Psych. We also use it to occupy our kids occasionally, and they get to watch our old favorites like The Littles.
Right now Hulu is offering many Halloween Specials you can stream on demand. My kids love "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown." They are actually watching it right now.
Hulu also provides an one month trial of Hulu Plus , but you do need to enter credit card information and cancel your subscription before the month is up or you will be charged $7.99 for the following month. Sammy made it through almost all of the Quantum Leap episodes with our free trial.
