Hulu has something for everyone, and is the only streaming service that offers access to current season shows from top broadcast networks, full libraries of hit shows, movies and acclaimed originals. With nearly 100,000 hours of content available on Hulu, this new universal app will make it easier to stream your favorite show wherever you want.
Hulu’s new app works beautifully with Windows 10 features like Cortana and Live Tiles and features an adaptive, responsive layout. The Hulu app on Windows 10 is the only version of Hulu available today that uses universal voice search through Cortana.
With support for Cortana you can launch the app and begin playing a show by simply saying, “Hey Cortana, Hulu play Family Guy”. If you haven’t seen the show before, the Hulu app will launch and immediately begin playing the first episode of the show. If it’s a series you’re already into, you can resume a show you’ve been watching by saying, “Hey Cortana, Hulu play ’Empire’” and the Hulu app will immediately begin playing that specific episode right where you left off!
With Windows 10 Live Tiles support, you can access Hulu with the touch of a finger by pinning the Hulu app to your Start menu. As a Live Tile you can discover new shows and always stay up to date on what the featured TV shows are on the Hulu App Homepage.
Whether on your phone, tablet or PC, the Hulu app on Windows 10 will look great with an adaptive and responsive layout so you can watch current and hit TV shows and movies right from your favorite Windows 10 device.
