Coming Soon: Your Resource for Good Things to Come

November 2nd, 2009 by Betina Chan-Martin Product Manager

Here at Hulu, we prioritize our features based largely on the feedback we receive from our users, and some of your most common questions are related to our streaming schedule for shows that are currently airing on TV. Simply put, we’ve noticed that many of you are often wondering when new episodes will be available. After a lot of work with our content providers, our product and design team, and our content team, we decided to create a page that contains a schedule of what’s to come for the week ahead.

Coming Soon Page

You can find this page, which we’re calling “Coming Soon,” when you follow the “Browse by Date” link at the top of Hulu.com and then click on the “Coming Soon” tab. The schedule will consist of scripted currents from ABC, NBC and FOX, including such as favorites as Family Guy, FlashForward, The Cleveland Show, The Office, Bones, Fringe, Modern Family and more. We are hoping to add additional series to the list over time so you can keep up with your favorites.

Along with the schedule, there are a few new features that will help you manage your Hulu viewing. If you’re a registered user, you can request an email notification to alert you when a particular video has been added to Hulu.com. We’ll also alert you on the rare occasion when that video is late in getting up on Hulu.com. For bloggers and editors, you can also grab the code to pre-embed the video to your blog. (An example is pasted below.) We will swap in the video as soon as it’s available on our site, so you’re free to post your article on your own schedule.

Coming Soon Embed

Again, thanks for sending us all of your feedback about the site, and we encourage you to send your comments about Coming Soon to . We hope you find this feature helpful — I know it’s definitely something I’m going to use.

Cheers,

  • Hi Aimee, thanks for posting! Our site should still have a Coming Soon movie tray, so I want to suggest you clear your browser cache and cookies ( http://www.hulu.com/support/article/189358 ) to see if it helps bring this category back. Our categories on the main page are based on what you watch, and your interests, so resetting them like this may bring Coming Soon back to the main page. Please let me know if you still run into trouble.

    Best, Alexa, Hulu Support

    What happened to the coming soon feature? I’m relying on Hulu for the majority (and soon to be all) of my television needs and am looking all over for this feature with no luck. Help please!

  • Azmildman says:

    I was trying to find out about “Boston’s Finest” that Hulu is advertising, is that going to be a Hulu.com featured show?

  • Charis says:

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both
    educative and entertaining, and without a doubt,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about.

    I am very happy that I found this during my search for something concerning this.

  • K says:

    Where is this feature in the new, really annoying, version of hulu?

  • jim king says:

    I loved the Family Guy but I have moved onto The Cleveland Show lol – its :) so I just watch online at http://www.watchtheclevelandshowepisodes.com

  • Coronus says:

    I’m disappointed that a feature like “Coming Soon” would be added. I dislike the traditional television programming model, and would like to see more breaks away from that.

  • Jacquie says:

    “Coming Soon” is the best thing since sliced bread. Thanks for an awesome feature.
