What features are available on Hulu?

Up to 6 Profiles

Hulu lets you create up to six profiles for a single account.

Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, Disney+, Max, Netflix, Paramount Plus, Peacock, SHOWTIME, and STARZ also have parental control features.

Up to 2 Devices

Hulu can be logged into as many devices as you like, but only two can be streaming at the same time.

Offline Downloads

International Access

While Hulu is not available outside of the U.S., you can still watch any shows or movies you downloaded offline while traveling out to the country.


Originals

Hulu offers original content available exclusively to Hulu subscribers.

These include top shows like “The Handmaid's Tale,” “Only Murders in the Building,” “Reboot,” “Dopesick,” “The Kardashians,” and “The Patient.” If you want to catch these great shows, it’s the only way to do it.

You’ll also see original films like “Prey,” “Palm Springs,” “Grimcutty,” “Hellraiser,” and “The United States vs. Billie Holiday.”

TV Shows

Hulu provides access to full seasons of many popular 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,” “Family Guy,” “Bob's Burgers,” “Law & Order: SVU,” and more.

Unlike other services, you get access to new episodes during the current season, and for some shows like “Family Guy” — every episode ever made.

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+.
