How people watch Hulu, Netflix (Nielsen)

Data recently released by Nielsen show starkly the differences in how people use Netflix versus how they use Hulu. Probably not a big surprise to people, but interesting nonetheless.

An overwhelming majority of Hulu viewers watch it directly on a computer, while less than half of Netflix viewers do. Also, notably, a whole lot more Neflix users connect via Wii, PS3 or Xbox Live.

Hulu users watch mostly TV shows, while Netflix viewers watch more movies.
