With Hulu, it is simple to get a hold of live TV shows, news, and sporting stories. Of course, that's not all. You can even enjoy the added benefit of a huge movie and series library. 

A mix of live TV and streaming

Hulu means never missing out on news, sports, or your favorite shows again.

Hulu is an online platform that brings together all your television and streaming needs in one place. Giving its viewers the option of up to six customizable profile options, Hulu makes sharing an account easier.

A great feature for those who love watching television shows is its live TV streaming option. With access to live and on-demand TV, you can stay up to date with your favorite shows anywhere from your phones.

With the added bonus of being able to add premium networks such as CINEMAX, HBO, and SHOWTIME to your Hulu Live TV streaming, fans have endless viewing options.

However, there is some bad news for anyone who wants to travel and stream Hulu outside the U.S and Japan. Hulu is geo-locked, which not only means you are limited to where you can use the app but also what content you have access to.

Without the option to download and watch content offline, Hulu falls behind on the streaming market in comparison to Netflix and Amazon Prime. This feature is ideal and a must-have for anyone on the move and with limited access to the internet.

Another major shortcoming with Hulu’s streaming options is its commercials. The attraction of using online streaming is getting to skip the ads that regular TV forces you to sit through. While there is an option to remove the ads, the principle behind it can be a deterrent.

Where can you run this program?

The app is available on iPhone, Android, and Windows.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. While the app offers you an array of great streaming options, similar to Amazon Prime, you have to pay to get rid of the ads. Meanwhile, their competitor, Netflix, offers viewers an ad-free streaming experience.

Our take

Hulu’s content library offers you alternative options to other streaming services. But its integration of commercials can be irritating, especially since Hulu is still a paid service.

Should you download it?

Yes. For those who have explored the contents of similar streaming services, Hulu will offer a new range of movies and series to choose from.
