Have you heard of Hulu.com?! It's a website that lets you watch tons of the latest TV episodes, some classics, and even a handful of movies... FOR FREE! All you have to do is register with an email! You can watch anything from SNL, 20/20, Supernanny, The Bachelorette, The Simpsons, Biography, HouseHunters, Hell's Kitchen, Lost... and the list goes on and on! You can even watch I Dream of Jeannie and The Dick Van Dyke Show if you're into the classics (I miss Nick at Nite!).

I usually watch one or two episodes on Hulu while practicing on my machine writing realtime. That way, I'm getting my practice in, I'm working on my dictionary, and I'm being entertained or informed (whether I'm watching a show purely for leisure or to keep up to date with what's going on in the world).

If you don't have time to sit through an average of 30-40 minutes per episode (there are commercials, too, but way less than TV!), you can just watch and practice to the clips instead, which lasts 2-5 minutes each.

Also, you can subscribe to the shows you like, and Hulu will automatically add new shows to your queue. Your favorite shows will be waiting for you just a click away the next time you log in. Beware, though, because most of the newest TV shows have an expiration date of usually 2 weeks after its original on-air date. So make sure to watch your shows before they expire!

I love this site! How could anyone NOT love free, right?! Haha! But seriously, TRY IT! Great practice for us steno-heads, and it's way easy for the student's wallet as well! ;)

P.S. But if you really, really love Hulu.com, you can upgrade to Hulu Plus at $9.99 monthly and get to watch more of your favorite shows on HDTV and/or your iPhone, iPad, etc.
