New Site Features: Channels and Discussion Boards

September 23rd, 2008 by Rebecca Harper Editor

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been working behind the scenes to help you discover all the videos Hulu has to offer. Our new channels — Action and Adventure, Comedy, Home and Garden, and much more — make it easier to find shows, movies and web originals based on whatever you’re in the mood for. And because many of our fans have so much to say about their favorite shows, we’ve added new discussion boards that you can access from any video or show page.

New Channels

Surfing Hulu is a whole lot easier: Our new, genre-based channels let you explore Hulu videos in a whole new way. Choose your favorite subject and discover all the videos Hulu has to offer. You can get a look at the new channels from our home page — just hover your mouse over the new “Channels” menu near the top of our home page, and an interactive channel list will pop up — or click through to the Channels Page, where you’ll find categories like Anime, featuring the ninjas from Naruto, the deadly notebook from Death Note, and the primeval Mushi-Shi; and Food and Leisure, with recipes from such Food Network shows as Everyday Italian with Giada De Laurentiis and 30 Minute Meals with Rachael Ray. You can browse by video or by show or movie title, and use the filters on the right to sort by most popular, recently added or title.

Discuss Videos with Other Hulu Users

Hulu fans have a lot to say about their favorite shows and movies. To make it easier to share ideas, discuss storylines and get the scoop on your favorite stars, we’ve introduced Hulu discussion boards. You can get started on any show page — a new “Discussions” tab now appears underneath the video player — and start a new thread about Dr. Greene’s upcoming appearance on ER, join in on the discussion about the pseudoscience on Fringe, or debate which Heroes villain has best superpower.

Hulu Discussion Boards

In addition to video discussions, we’ve launched a forum for general discussions about all things Hulu: the Hulu Discussion Boards, where you can share your suggestions, request a new show, or leave feedback for our team. In addition, a search feature allows you to search for discussion topics based on keyword.

Channels and discussion boards are just two of the site improvements. Click around the site and see what else is new; we’ll announce other new features this week.

Enjoy,

Rebecca

  • With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored
    myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up
    all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    You did not mention it, but the changes made to the queue page were greatly needed. When a whole season of Buffy was added (goodness, months ago) and it was all out of order, it took nearly 20 minutes moving one episode at a time to get it lined up correctly. Have yet to use the order entry fields, but if they work the way I’m hoping they do, I very much appreciate it. (Though now my thumbnails of videos are tiny, alas.) Thanks for the functionality work you continue to do to Hulu!
