Hulu Updates Home Screen on Android App Making It Easier to Find Content
After updating the UI of their iPhone & iPad Apps, Hulu is now rolling out an update to their Android App to match the new home screen. Now, when you scroll through content, you will see more than one show or movie. On tablets, there are now up to six tiles of content, while on phones you can see two at at time.
This dramatically improves the discoverability of content compared to their earlier apps. Before, you would see a single show or movie, meaning you need to scroll one-by-one to find anything in the app. To see the changes, you must update to the latest version of the Hulu App from Google Play. The update is rolling out to customers throughout the day, so you might not see it right away.
This is just one of the many enhancements that Hulu has on the horizon for their mobile, TV, and web experience.
Hulu has rolled new live guide, which now allows you to see 14-days of shows (up from 48 hours), to Roku and Apple TV devices, as well as their website. They plan to expand it to more devices in the coming months.
The feature was originally announced by Hulu at CES in January, and began rolling out on Hulu.com last month. Besides the 2-week look ahead, down the left side you will quickly be able to switch between All Channels, Favorites, Recents, and categories like Sports. The new guide adds an quick view panel, easier filtering, startover icons, and an indicator if a game in blacked out in your city directly from the guide.
