How to Watch Hulu on TV

Hulu is a streaming network that provides an exciting new medium of entertainment like never before. Ever since the launch of its subscription service, Hulu has been able to satisfy its fans with countless options of movies and television shows from The Handmaid's Tale to Zombieland and The Devil Wears Prada.

One major perk Hulu has is that there is a fairly short wait time from the day a TV series airs on live TV to the day it is available to watch on Hulu. On average, the wait time ranges from a week to only a day depending on the series. Additionally, Hulu just introduced a new subscription that offers Hulu + Live TV, allowing users to stream 60+ top Live and On Demand TV channels, including sports, news, and entertainment.

The first step to figuring out how to watch Hulu on TV is knowing what kind of technology you can use to access it

What are Some Options on How to Watch Hulu on TV?

Over-the-Air DVR

Stream+ is a reliable streaming media player and an OTA DVR (over-the-air digital recorder) that will complement all OTA TV antennas. For a one time price, you have the opportunity to Stream Hulu with ease using Google's Android TV platform. The platform will grant you access to the Google Play store, where you can find a number of different streaming apps and games. It's important to note that although the Stream+ does not come with a monthly subscription, you will need a monthly subscription to Hulu in order to view their library of shows and movies.

Another great perk you will enjoy with the Stream+ media player is the device offers an on-screen program guide allowing you to pause, rewind, and record live TV without a single subscription fee that traditionally comes with this option. The dynamic interface of the device allows users to also conveniently navigate between live TV, DVR, and popular streaming apps without the need to switch devices.
