Hulu has unveiled the Hulu Plus app for Xbox One, which comes just one day after Google announced the official YouTube app for Xbox One. Hulu aims to give you the best TV-watching experience possible.
"You can pin Hulu Plus to your Home screen to have easy access to it. You can also locate Hulu Plus in the Xbox OneGuide, which will give you the opportunity to add Hulu Plus as an App Channel. App channels are like TV channels, allowing you to view Hulu Plus categories like Popular Shows, Popular Episodes, Popular Movies, and Trending Now right alongside your favorite TV channels, like Comedy Central," Hulu explained in an official blog post today.
Here are some of the key features of Hulu Plus for Xbox One:
- Tray-style navigation allows you to quickly scroll through recommendations, popular shows and movies, top 100 clips and more.
- Richer artwork and larger images.
- A simpler way to find your favorite shows and discover new content with our updated search experience.
- A new “Shows You Watch” feature that lets you jump straight to shows you regularly watch
- Dedicated show pages for Hulu Originals, Hulu Latino, Video Game Trailers, and Hulu Kids. New to the Hulu Kids section today, we’re bringing you more kids programming, including classics like “Sesame Street,” “Thomas and Friends” and “Strawberry Shortcake”.
Hulu apparently "worked relentlessly" with Microsoft to make this app happen. You can take a quick tour of the app below:
