Chances are, most of the video that you consume everyday very rarely come from a real movie screen or an actual television. With video-streaming services (both legit and the spurious ones) available left and right and for all kinds of gadgets, you would of course prefer to be in control of what you consume. Hulu has been one of the pioneers in on-demand video and now, an update for its Android app is offering users a chance to sample some content for free.
With thousands of classic, past and current videos on their database, Hulu has a veritable banquet of content just waiting to be gobbled up by pop culture enthusiasts. Selected content from latest and past episodes of current TV shows showing on networks will be offered for free when you download the Hulu app on your Android smartphone or tablet. Some of the free content also comes from other Hulu channels like Originals, Anime, Kids, Latino and Movies.
Aside from watching on your device, you can also stream the content on to other connected devices like smart TVs, game consoles and streaming players. You can also cast the videos from your phone or tablet to the larger TV screen by using devices like Chromecast, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4. Just like other streaming services, you can favourite videos you want to watch later, and if ever you had to stop watching, you can resume from where you stopped later on.
If you’ve had your fill of free content and want to move on to binge-watching complete seasons of your favourite TV shows, you can easily upgrade to Hulu Plus for $7.99/month. However, Hulu still limits its availability to the United States, so if you’re outside the country, you’d have to be content with using other video-streaming services (hopefully, legit right?) You can download the Hulu app from the Google Play Store.
