Seth MacFarlane has said a few times on Twitter that one of the primary reasons for moving to Hulu was that they now have the freedom to tell a story without time constraints. If the story takes 37 minutes to tell, they don't have to do filler. If it's a 68 minutes story, they get the time to tell that and don't have to cut things. The only advantage to Hulu Live really is that you get local channels included, and that's why I went with it.
So that’s actually a really interesting aspect...it will be nice to potentially get an episode that’s more than one current length episodes, but less than two current length episodes. Seems it gives them a bit more freedom to tell the story how they want to tell it.
