Do you Hulu?
Hulu.com, the advertising-supported online video site creation of NBC and Fox, began privately testing its services yesterday.

A NATPE Birthday to
Kevorkian Coming to HBO
I know their slogan is its not TV its HBO, but this one is going to be quite interesting to say the least. There have been many interviews and news stories on the Doctor of Death, the infamous "60 minutes" interview with Mike Wallace, and televised suicide which gave prosecutors all they needed to land Krikorian a prison sentence. Now after an 8 year prison term Krikorian is cooperating with HBO films to do a movie about his controversial practices.
This should keep my subscription going to HBO!
