'Revenge of the Electric Car' movieEnlarge Photo
Last week we told you that the 2011 sequel to Who Killed The Electric Car? -- Revenge Of The Electric Car -- had finally been released on DVD.
At the time, we pointed out that the film would also be available on select cable TV on-demand services, but neglected to point out that it was also available for a limited period online, courtesy of over-the-top Internet streaming service Hulu.
As part of a one-week exclusive deal between the film’s production company and Hulu, anyone in the U.S. with a broadband Internet connection can watch the film for free by visiting the Hulu website before February 3, 2012.
The only catch? Like watching a film on broadcast TV, you’ll have to put up with the occasional commercial break.

Sadly, Hulu’s one-week showing of Revenge Of The Electric Car ends in a few days, but if you’re quick you should still be able to watch it for free.
If you live outside the U.S. however, you won’t be able to watch: Hulu only delivers content to computers located within the U.S., so unless you’re a networking genius who likes to play with IP tunneling, you’ll be out of luck.
For those outside of the U.S., there’s no word yet on when Revenge Of The Electric Car will become officially available, but if you’ve got a region-free DVD player, you should be able to get a U.S. copy of the film shipped to you from one of the its approved stockists in the U.S.
