Version History

Launched Jun 29, 2010 (almost 8 years ago).

Releasing new versions every 21 days, on average.

May 22
2018
(Current)
Version 5.23

New: Find all your live TV in one place. If you are a Hulu with Live TV subscriber, you’ll see a lightning icon in your app’s global navigation. From now on that will be the place you go if you want to see what’s live. Playback will start immediately on your last-watched channel.

New: We learned from your feedback that if you are a Hulu with Live TV viewer, you are always FOMOing. You want to know whether there’s something better on TV right now, and you think channels are the best way to find out what that is.

So, lo and behold the feature that is going to make this possible on Hulu:

Live Guide.

So, what is it exactly?

* Live Guide is a next-generation experience that will help cord-cutters, traditional cable users, and everyone in between find what to watch as quickly as possible. It's slick, without any unnecessary details that would get in the way of your watching experience.


How does it work?

* Launch Live Guide anytime while watching live TV by holding your phone vertically -- or hitting the exit fullscreen icon (which actually takes you into portrait player). 

* Live Guide shows a list of all your recently watched channels. Scroll to the right on each of the channel rows to see what’s coming up. 


* By default, the Live Guide shows your recently watched channels. But you can always select All Channels to see an A-Z list of all channels.

* With just one click you’ll be able to record any program playing now or in the future

* (Yes, it’s a TV guide. But way better.)

* When you're ready to watch, tap your show choice and rotate your device horizontally to watch it full-screen.


New: So, on this release, we brought you Live Guide, but we also redesigned the way you can look up on-demand content.

How do you get to it?

* Select any episode of on-demand show

* Turn your phone vertically to see the guide with the next episodes of that show, content from My Stuff and recommended content. 

* Turn it back horizontally to watch your program full-screen. 


New: You were loud and clear on this one. You wanted better ways in which you could tell us what content you REALLY like (and which one you could care less). We made it happen with these two new features:

* Remove from Watch History: Remove items that “mistakenly” ended up on your profile’s Watch History (whether you went to sleep with the TV on and woke up knee-deep into a random season, or your partner was too lazy to switch to their profile and binged like there was no tomorrow). To get rid of shows that you don’t want to watch anymore, select the Remove icon on the Keep Watching Collection. You can also check out all your watching history by scrolling to the bottom of the Keep Watching collection and selecting All Watch History. Then, click on the three dots of every show that you want to remove from that hub.


* Stop suggesting this: You can now improve the quality of in-app recommendations by down-voting shows that don’t apply to you. If you see suggestions in your lineup that you don’t like, tap on the Stop Suggesting button to make them go away forevah. Access this feature via the context menu on recommended collections (Lineup, News, TV, Movies, and Kids) on the Home screen.


New: Hold your horses. We have ANOTHER update. And this is a big one for a lot of you. We brought back HDMI support! Use your iOS device to connect to an external display with an HDMI Lightning adapter. (Apple approved Lightning-to-HDMI adapters highly recommended).

New: And last but not least… the Chromecast controller is now your remote of the future! It looks better, feels better and does more for you.

2018
Version 5.22

Fix: Routine pest control. We killed some nasty bugs.

Apr 26
2018
Version 5.21

New: There’s a new player in town! As always, your feedback was on point and got us thinking of ways to polish our player and wash away your biggest pain points. Check out some of its new features and improvements:

Hold your finger down anywhere on the screen to begin seeking, which allows you to forward/rewind the video with greater precision.
Skip forward button will now fast forward the video by 30 seconds
Tap screen quickly to fast forward the video in 30 seconds increments
Tap once on the screen and select More Content to navigate to other Hulu content

Apr 09
2018
Version 5.20

New: You can now get to the content you love without even opening the Hulu app itself! What kind of sorcery is this? Well, it’s our new Widget! It lets you resume videos you were already watching straight from your lock screen.

Add our Widget with these simple steps:

1. Swipe right over the Home screen of your iPhone/iPad, Lock screen, or while you're looking at your notifications
2. From there, scroll to the bottom and tap Edit
3. Find Hulu in the list of More Widgets and tap (+)
4. You should see the Hulu Widget at the bottom of your list. (Pro tip: reorder them by touching, holding and dragging them in the order that you want).
5. Access anytime by repeating step 1


Improvement: You would think that by now your iPad app SHOULD have learned that it belongs to you and you only. You’ve been probably wishing it wouldn’t ask you to select your profile every-dang-time you want to watch Hulu. But naw. It just kept asking. Good news is those days are over! We finally got to work on this issue, and you can now set a default profile and MAKE your app remember you. Problem solved!

However, in case you DO share your iPad (or your iPhone, ‘cause anything goes, really), you can still choose to have the profile select screen show up every time you launch our app. To each their own ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Improvement: We’re always on bug-killing duty. It's a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.

Mar 26
2018
Version 5.19

New: Quick Actions are now a thing on our app. They allow you to perform useful app-specific actions right from the Home screen. Use them on devices that support 3D Touch (like iPhones 6s and above):

1. Find the Hulu app icon on your Home screen and apply pressure on it (a lil’ bit more than you use for tap and hold)
2. The screen will blur and you will see the shortcuts for Search and My Stuff
3. That’s it!

New: iPhone X pinch to zoom is here!

Improvement: Hulu's UX team lives for things that look nice AND work nicely. So, in their incessant quest for the perfect user experience, they’ve been at it again and made the Onboarding flow even better.

Mar 13
2018
Version 5.18.1

Some of you were launching our app, and after the Hulu welcome screen came up, you would be kicked out. The workaround was no fun since you had to delete and re-install the app. We don’t want you to waste your precious time and data, so we implemented a quick fix. It should be good to go.

Fill your brackets, place your bets, college basketball is here! And so is our new March Madness experience for Hulu with Live TV. You pick the teams you want to follow before the frenzy begins – and then you’ll know where and when they’ll play, and we’ll record their games so you can watch later.

What is basketball, you say? No worries! Just root for your favorite underdog mammal, pick based on a geographic bias, ask a Ouija board – anything goes, really. That’s what makes March so dang mad. And that’s Bracketology 101, kids.

Mar 08
2018
Version 5.18

***If you are experiencing the "crash on launch" issue please try deleting and re-installing the app. If this doesn't fix the issue, please contact Hulu support at http://hulu.com/help ***

Our developers pulled all-nighters and dined on Soylent for days straight just to fix the bugs that you called out. Good news is they didn’t do it in vain. Our app looks and runs better. Take it for a spin.

Feb 26
2018
Version 5.17

All bugs are pests, whether tiny or grotesque. We found small ones that made our app slow – so obviously those had to go. There were BIG ones that messed up our show descriptions – so we wrote them all mean letters of eviction. And there was one who crashed live playback – who got smashed thanks to your awesome feedback!

Feb 06
2018
Version 5.16

Fix: We killed a bug that was graying out the option to turn on captions in on-demand content. For obvious reasons, fixing this was a top priority as soon as we learned about it.

Fix: Routine pest control. We killed some other nasty bugs.

Jan 30
2018
Version 5.15.1

We found and fixed the issue that was causing crashes for many of our users at app start. Please update to the latest version to fix this. Sorry for the inconvenience!

New: We’re in the process of revamping our DVR. In the following months, you’ll see My Stuff and DVR transform into a more personalized experience.

Thanks to this specific update, you can now add content to MyStuff without necessarily recording it (save that precious DVR space!).

Also, you’ll see new recording options presented as a pop-up modal. Decide between: Recording the whole series, recording only new episodes, or recording new episodes AND reruns. We are reducing your chances of missing your favorite shows by 80%. (We just made that up, but if we really did the math... the percentage would still be pretty high.)

One caveat: to access recording options for Sports and Leagues, you will need to add your teams to MyStuff (there’s currently no auto-record feature).

Version 5.14

Bug fixes and UI improvements!

Dec 19
2017
Version 5.13.1

New: It’s a fact that Hulu has tons of shows from a variety of content providers. It’s also a fact that it can get complicated to keep track of what you can watch, when you can watch, and until when you can watch it. To set the right expectations for you, our newest update includes a “Latest Episodes” badge for our on-demand content. Whenever you see it you’ll know that we have a limited number of episodes of that show. Hulu doesn’t always have full series or full seasons available for all content. We know, we know! But we hope this badge helps you plan accordingly and don’t miss out on shows that have a shorter shelf-life.

New: Give your fingers a rest with Apple’s Single sign-on feature. You will now be able to login with your Hulu account by selecting Hulu as your Apple TV Provider across all Apple devices. After you have signed in, the Hulu app will sign you in automatically from now on.

Improvement: TV built around you should bring you right to the episode you want - and not make you dig through spoilers. Thanks to this update, when you go to the Episodes tab of a show, you'll find the episode you left off at the top of the list. And if you are starting a show from the very beginning, you’ll be presented with an ordered list.

Improvement: Take full advantage of what My Stuff offers. Whenever you roll over or click on the + icon on a show’s Details page, you’ll know what it will do thanks to an on-screen message. So, you’ll either see: “Add [name of show] to My Stuff to save for the future”, or “Add [name of show] to My Stuff to keep track and record new episodes”.

Version 5.12

We improved our look and feel. Also we did some routine pest control: we squished some pesky bugs!

Nov 13
2017
Version 5.11

Slicker swiping, smoother scrolling, and smarter onboarding.

Oct 30
2017
Version 5.10

We’ve made a number of tweaks and updates to make your TV experience a little smoother. Less time navigating Hulu means more time watching Hulu. Enjoy!

Oct 20
2017
Version 5.9

New: Picture-in-picture is back! Supported iPad users can keep browsing Hulu, or even leave our app, and continue watching your shows on this small but mighty new screen.

New: Good things are coming. And in preparation for that, you will see an opt-in dialog to accept Hulu notifications. You won’t be receiving them yet, but when the time comes, you’ll be as excited as we are about them.

Improvement: We brought back the feature to pause and resume playback with Apple supported headphones and Bluetooth accessories. We are sorry we took it off for a bit!

Oct 06
2017
Version 5.8.1

Our revamped badging system will help you identify content availability. For example, "New" badges on both live and on-demand shows will point you to the next best episode to watch, whether this is airing right now or if it’s something you missed and it’s now on-demand.

There’s so much to watch and sometimes not enough time. We want to give you as much info as possible with fewer clicks so you can make better choices. Now, whenever you go to the context menu (those three little dots on the corner of a video tile), we are surfacing more details about the show, game or movie.

Sep 09
2017
Version 5.6.1

We made some adjustments towards better readability and legibility. Squinting is no fun, so we increased the weight of our font. Space is as important as words, so we changed the leading, padding, and spacing.

In certain scenarios, the player would cause the app to crash during playback. We’ve fixed that. We are now more stable!

Chromecast wouldn’t remember your Autoplay settings? That’s a thing of the past. Now it will.
