What do you want from a search engine? Bing is the one search engine that rewards you with money for using it. Sure, it takes time. But with a bit of dedication and regular use, you can earn money to spend on movies, music, video games, food or even get discounts on Amazon. It took awhile, probably 18-24 months. But I recently had 50,000 Bing points built up. Which pretty much translates into $50 cash. Just for doing what I would be doing ordinarily. I cashed in my points for $50 on the Windows or Xbox store and got the new Forza Horizon 3 for $10, the retail price is $60. The alternative I was thinking of was a year of Xbox Live a similar amount of points. So you really can't beat that. Free stuff just for browsing.
The only thing I would like to see Bing add would be a shopping search function like Google has. It would make it easier to track down hard to find items and sort by price. Usually for that I use Google. So if you're reading this Bing, add that feature!

The quality of most of their content is excellent, but often overpriced. I can get a lot of that stuff free, legally.

Hulu has a decent variety, but far far less than what you get with Netflix. The quality of the video is very good and the audio is good as well. Hulu has manual and auto settings for quality, which is useful in areas where your internet bandwidth isn't optimal for HD and it works well most of the time. Often times though you'll end up buffering when it really shouldn't be necessary and no amount of pausing will allow it to buffer to a point where you can continue watching it. If it weren't for the ads it wouldn't be such a major problem. But it only buffers to the next add and then it empties your buffer has to start from nothing again, which frequently causes problems with less than ideal internet speeds. The adds are obnoxious and you're forced to sit through them over and over again if something happens and you're forced to refresh the video. The player has a bad habit of tracking your video way to far ahead when using touch screen controls on your tablet or mobile device which causes you to have to sit through more irritating commercials.
The bottom line is it's way over priced for something that has ads. I don't have cable for that specific reason. If there's ads, it should be free or at least much cheaper. I only plan to keep my subscription for a few months and then ditch it for 6 months or so and then renew my subscription for a couple more months. I imagine most people do it this way as the value is pretty mediocre. I like Hulu most of the time, but they really screw you over a heck of a lot.
There's no 4k resolution, but they do support 1080P and 5.1 surround sound. So reasonable quality for both video and audio.
