Hulu is currently the second biggest streaming service in North America, with Netflix taking first place. The app has 20 million subscribers in the US and also has a knock-off version in Japan which is increasingly popular. While the app is only available officially in the US (not even in Canada), it’s world renown is growing rapidly and it’s likely that it’ll soon expand into the European and Canadian markets.
The app provides a similar deal to Netflix – stream tons of movies and TV shows for a relatively cheap monthly fee. You can also pay more to get access to live TV streaming, as well as purchase add-on libraries from HBO and Showtime. This means that the app can become an entertainment hub of unparalleled proportions (with all the add-ons)
The latest version of Hulu comes with a well-designed interface that makes searching for new movies easy and convenient – you can search by genre or director, as well as explore sub-genres to get more tailored material to suit your viewing needs.
Unfortunately, Hulu isn’t free. For a basic account which can be viewed on one device and contains ads, you’ll need to pay $7.99 per month. This isn’t much to ask, although, it has to be mentioned that Netflix has more content without ads for the same price.
The next step up can be viewed on more than one device at a time and removes ads, this version costs $11.99. This still leaves the service more expensive than Netflix and it still has less content – so, why download Hulu? The answer is about to come.
For $29.99 you get the whole Hulu library ad-free, plus live daytime TV. This is the creme de la creme of the Hulu service and is a worthy replacement of a regular TV subscription. You can also add the entire HBO library for $14.99 per month, and Showtime and more for similar prices. While this might sound expensive at first, it’s worth noting that this gives you the TV channels and all the shows and movies to stream whenever you want.
Why Download the Latest Version of Hulu?
As mentioned above, this is a great way to get a better TV subscription, but that’s not all the benefits of Hulu. The app is growing – more and more partners are joining forces with Hulu and more and more shows like South Park, Family Guy and Seinfeld are putting their entire backlog on there. On top of this, the app will certainly grow outside of the US in the coming years and spread around the world, which will further increase its popularity and the amount of content available.
They’re also starting to make their own Hulu Originals, following in the direction of Netflix. Seeing as the company is now pulling in revenue of well over $1 billion per year and is growing in the millions each year with regard to subscribers, the future could be without a ceiling for Hulu.
