Hulu Back To The Future
Hulu has chosen April 1 to explore the broadcast world of the past, with a refit of its site taking customers back to 1996, a time of grainy photos, dial-up modems, website counters, and basic text. Photos slowly load to reveal promos of the X-Files Chinatown episode, Murder One, NewsRadio and Sliders. Web design features of the 1990s are featured, including a neon page counter, an invitation to sign a guestbook, references to Netscape Navigator, Internet Explorer and Geocities.
