Hulu, which has been in beta for a while, is now available to the public. Currently it only works for the USA, but even with that limit, the ability to watch streaming movies and TV over the net is rather nice; they’ve even got some HD content. They’ve made it very similar to watching TV, as you can expect commercial interruptions during your viewing. Give it a try, you may find that the service they offer is free enough for you to enjoy using it.
