Hulu Just Updated Their New App on Android, iOS, and Apple TV With New Features


Hulu just rolled out a new update to their Hulu app on Android, iOS, and the Apple TV today.

Here is everything that is new & improved:

Apple TV Update:

  • New: Shows and movies in the Expiring collection now display the exact expiration date. Think of it like a shelf life for your binge-watching.
  • New: Countdown timer. Are you still there? A countdown timer lets you know how much time you have left to decide whether you want to Autoplay the next show, go back to browsing, or stick to your resolution of getting eight hours of sleep a day. Pick wisely.
  • Improvement: We went from three to four columns in the Browse section of our app. The more the merrier!
  • Fix: Playback of recorded content automatically starts from the beginning. Gone are the days when you scheduled a recording, tuned in 30 minutes into the game (still in progress), and be taken immediately to the live broadcast. No more spoilers!

Android Update Notes:

  • New: Night gathers, and now your binge watching begins. Now you can add our Premium content add-ons (HBO, Showtime, and Cinemax) directly in-app.
  • Improvement: Hulu on Android has been touched up. We added a coat of paint, scoured the floors, hung up new curtains… In a nutshell, our video player and show tiles look nicer now.
  • Improvement: In certain scenarios, exiting the player would cause the app to crash. We’ve fixed that. We are now stable!
  • Improvement: We took some etiquette classes. We will now give you detailed next steps to make sure you can continue watching Hulu.

iOS Update Notes:

  • New: To make things easier, shows and movies in the Expiring collection now display their exact expiration date. Yeah, just like your milk. So don’t make yourself sick – enjoy it now before it goes!
  • New: Countdown timer. Are you still there? A countdown timer lets you know how much time you have left to decide whether you want to Autoplay the next show, go back to browsing, or stick to your resolution of getting eight hours of sleep a day. Pick wisely.
  • Improvement: We went from three to four columns in the Browse section of our app. The more the merrier!
  • Improvement: Now it’s even easier to cast your content. We’ve added the cast icon to Browse, My stuff and to the Home screen.
  • Improvement: Hulu on iOS has been touched up. We added a coat of paint, scoured the floors, hung up new curtains… In a nutshell, our video player and show tiles look nicer now.
  • Fix: Playback of recorded content automatically starts from the beginning. Gone are the days when you scheduled a recording, tuned in 30 minutes into the game (still in progress), and be taken immediately to the live broadcast. No more spoilers!

Hulu is asking anyone who finds a glitch to let them know about it HERE.

    How about a Roku version? I believe some are testing in Beta but lets get this thing out there already.

    For years (w. cable) made sure wife turned on TV and made sure she set the game in progress back to beginning. I watch most sports 30-60 minutes after they start and FF thru ads, half time etc. usually caught up live near end of game.
