These include top shows like The Handmaid's Tale, The Act, and Castle Rock, and comedies like Shrill and PEN15. If you want to catch these great shows, it’s the only way to do it.

TV Shows

Hulu provides access to full seasons of current TV shows from ABC, NBC, Fox, and major cable channels. This means that the day after the show airs, you’ll get access to it on demand on Hulu.

This includes shows like This Is Us, Grey's Anatomy, Empire, Family Guy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Saturday Night Live, Bob's Burgers, Law & Order: SVU and more.

Movies

Hulu includes a large library of over 2,500 movies through deals with Lionsgate and Dreamworks. While they generally aren’t new releases, they include many classics like The Princess Bride, Slumdog Millionaire, Parasite, and more.

Kids

Disney is focusing Disney+ for their kids content, so Hulu comes up a little short in that department. You will find shows like Animaniacs, Hey Arnold!, The Powerpuff Girls and movies like Rio, Trolls World Tour, and How to Train Your Dragon: Homecoming. If you have children, you may be best served by the Hulu bundle that includes Disney+.
