What is Hulu: Watch TV series & movies?

Hulu is a streaming service and video app, on which users can watch Hulu original series, their favorite network shows, and thousands of movies on-demand.

The Hulu app is available for free download in the App Store and the Google Play Store. This app is rated for users 12 years of age and older. Hulu features in-app purchases and advertisements.

Hulu is a subscription-based service. Unlike other streaming services, Hulu users can watch new episodes of TV showing that are currently airing. Hulu requires a subscription for use and features two plans: $7.99 per month to view with advertisements or $11.99 per month without advertisements.

Subscriptions can be paid for through your iTunes account or users can pay for an account using a credit or debit card through the Hulu website.

Hulu features entertainment from most major television networks, including NBC, Disney, HBO, CBS, PBS, Fox, and MTV. Hulu also features a Live TV plan options that users can elect to use with Apple TV Gen. 4 or iPhone/iPad running iOS10 or later.

Users logging in to the app for the first time will be offered a quick tutorial of where to find everything in the app. Hulu features a menu running along the bottom of the screen featuring tabs for Home, My Stuff, Browse, Search, and Account. Users are able to browse based on networks, tv shows, movies, Hulu originals, kids, and genres.

Is Hulu: Watch TV series & movies safe for my kids?

Hulu is safe for kids, with some adult supervision. A lot of the content on Hulu is safe for kids, but not all of it. Some content featured on the site features profanity, drug and alcohol references, sexual content and nudity, violence, and mature or suggestive themes.

Parents can create a profile for their kids, on which only shows in the "Kids" category can be viewed. This feature allows kids to log in to a content-filtered experience. No mature titles or recommendations will be shown to users logging in under a children's profile. Without this content filtering, it would be too easy for kids to find inappropriate content.

Older children will likely be able to find ways around the content filtering, like switching to another account. As with most TV streaming services, like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, Hulu may require parental supervision but does feature a lot of great kid-appropriate content.

Outside of some content that is not suitable for children, parents will not have much to worry about with the Hulu app. There are no additional in-app purchases in addition to the subscription cost and there are no chatting capabilities
