Hulu has added the ability to download content and watch it on the go.
Jim Denney, VP of product management, and Helena Cerna, director of product management, made the announcement in a blog post.
“Available today on iOS for viewers on our Hulu (No Ads) plan, you’ll now be able to download thousands of shows and movies — like past seasons of hit series including ‘Family Guy,’ ‘Desperate Housewives,’ ‘This is Us,’ ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ and ‘ER,’ as well as Hulu Originals like ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘Shrill’ and ‘The Act’ — to take with you on the go,” they wrote. “Now, with Hulu, you can watch what you want, when you want … even when you don’t have an internet connection.”
Consumers can navigate to the “Downloads” tab at the bottom of their screen to access downloaded content. To find more shows and movies to download, they can click “See What’s Downloadable.”
Titles available on Hulu for download have a download icon on the details page.
Viewers can download up to 25 titles across five different devices and will have up to 30 days to watch their downloaded content. For watched content, the download will expire two days after starting playback. After downloaded content expires, viewers can renew an expired download when online, if that content is still available on Hulu.
Downloads will be coming to Android users soon, they wrote.
