Michael Tackett / CW
Welcome to the future. Well, almost. The deal between CW and Hulu makes your favorite shows available as soon as one day after the original air date (depending on your Hulu membership level). The deal is a sign of what's to come: more companies giving more control to consumers. Now you can watch what you want, where you want and (almost) when you want. Watching television just isn't what it used to be.
