      So I thought I’d start a little discussion after cancelling my Hulu trial here.

      As a devout advertisement-hater and pihole-deploying, block-W10-analytics-at-the-firewall-level neurotic, I went for the more expensive ad-free plan thinking it got me out of the creepy tracking/analytics too. Surprise! It does not- uMatrix lights up like a Christmas tree when you load anything *.hulu.com

      I don’t like being the product. I feel being tracked and analyzed etc makes me exactly that.

      What do you all think? Is wanting a non-tracked video/tv streaming service too much to ask for?

      Edit: Just to help exemplify my point, a little snippet from the Hulu privacy policy:

      “For clarity, even if you have not consented to Hulu sharing Viewing Information together with your personal information, we may still share information collected from or about you”
