Hey, I’m Chris. I wrote this article and I’m also the founder and Editor of DailyTekk. Lets connect on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube. Check back daily!

hulu_L_RGBHulu is on a mission; a mission that droves of people have come to appreciate. That mission is to help people find and enjoy the world’s premium video content when, where and how they want it and it’s no small task. Needless to say, they are off to a good start. Hulu now offers content from over 400 companies including Fox, ABC, NBCUniversal, MTV Networks and Comedy Central. Some content is free. Hulu Plus, on the other hand, offers unlimited streaming (including entire series and many current seasons) for a reasonable $7.99 per month. That’s the Hulu you already know and possibly love.

My favorite part of the office? The HQ lobby. The lobby is a unique area of our HQ. The lobby brings together key elements of our culture into one physical area. The first thing everyone will notice are the professionally taken photographs of every employee at Hulu arranged along the walls. It’s a fun celebration of the diversity of people we have at Hulu, as the photos provide a glimpse into each Hulugan’s interests or personality. From photos of Hulugans playing chess, djing, piano or rugby, to posing with their pet cats, dogs or fish, to a impersonating the infamous 1993 Janet Jackson Rolling Stone Magazine cover, the wall is a reminder that you are part of a unique ...
