Hulu fans can now host virtual watch parties on FaceTime thanks to SharePlay support on the iPhone and iPad. The official Hulu app for iOS now delivers shared app experiences via Apple SharePlay, which means multiple people in different locations can watch the same streaming content in sync with each other. All parties in the FaceTime call must be subscribers to Hulu to watch the same show or movie.
Hulu offers a ton of viewing content, mostly TV shows but a lot of movies as well. Finding one that you are in the mood for or haven't already seen can be tedious at times though, just like on Netflix. Fortunately, also just like on Netflix, there are a number of things you can do to improve your viewing experience. Here are 5 tips to help you get the most out of Hulu:
If you have children that you don't want watching mature content on your iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV, you'll have to block it on each individual provider - there is no catchall setting that does the trick. That means you have to go into Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, YouTube, HBO and any other content provider you might have a subscription to and set up restrictions in one form or another.
With its most recent update, Hulu (version 3.6.1) has finally made it possible to download content for offline viewing. Now you'll be able to download your favorite TV shows and movies to watch while you are on a flight, out in the back country or anywhere else with little or no cell service or access to the internet. Here's how to download Hulu content to your iPhone and watch it offline:
Instead of TV shows and movies consolidating under the umbrella of a single source as many of us once hoped for, there has been an explosion of original content from a plethora of sources that keeps us picking and choosing our subscriptions à la carte. Some of these providers let you download content to watch offline, some don't, and some charge extra for the service.
