Before watching any movies on Hulu be sure you have an updated flash player and delete all spyware from your computer to prevent buffering. If buffering does occur pause it for 5 or 10 minutes and then start again. Using Hulu's dim the lights option will improve the contrast and give you a movie theater-like atmosphere.
