We’ve recently added two new settings to the Privacy and Settings tab in your user profile. Both can be found under Personal Settings in the left column of your Privacy and Settings page, as shown below.
One setting is for Closed Captioning and it allows you to set the Hulu player to always turn on English captions when available. The second setting allows you to instruct the Hulu player to always default to the hi-res (1Mbps, 480p) stream if available for any video.
These are both in addition to the two settings that remain from before. One opts you in to receive the occasional (and by occasional, we mean rare) e-mail from us when we have exciting news or site features to share. The second activates queue updates. These short text e-mails let you know if we’ve added a video from any of your subscriptions to your queue. We also will send a short e-mail if any of the videos in your queue are expiring soon so you have a chance to view them. These queue update e-mails are batched and sent at most once a day, and only when there’s relevant activity to share.
You’ll need a Hulu account to access and adjust these settings. If you haven’t signed up for a Hulu account, it’s free and quick.
