Contrary to popular belief, Hulu does not want to be the so-called YouTube-killer. According to Reuters, this site wants to be “the premier destination for full length shows and movies” and regarded for its “high quality approach to content.”

Hulu’s partners include Fox, NBC, E!, Bravo, FX, SciFi, USA, and Universal. Although convincing big content producers is a big challenge to this startup site, it managed to include Sony Pictures Television and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. in its roster.

Unfortunately, Hulu’s official blog stated that “not everyone will receive an invitation to the private beta today, but we will be ramping up the number of invitations to the private beta each week.”
