Nielsen stats show NBC's Hulu video site has only 2 percent of YouTube's traffic. But there's a twist: Hulu runs ads on everything. YouTube, by contrast, can sell ads on less than 3 percent of its video trove. Moreover, Hulu seems to land more big-ad-budget consumer brands like Dove. Watch enough Hulu, and the ads seem pretty close to what you'll catch on cable. Maybe that's why they aggravate my elitist nerves. I'd still rather pay a few bucks a month to watch all my online vids without interruptions. Yes, I'd pay for YouTube. Is it really just me?
