Hulu Plus Arrives on Apple TV

July 31st, 2012 by Dallas Mahrt Senior Software Developer

Keeping up with the latest episode of Family Guy, MasterChef and New Girl on Hulu Plus just got a little easier. And my living room just got a whole lot happier.

Hulu Plus arrives on Apple TV today.

To start watching Hulu Plus shows instantly, find “Hulu Plus” on the Apple TV home screen. If you are a Hulu Plus subscriber, simply enter your username and password to start streaming last night’s episode of Modern Family from the biggest screen in the house.

If you do not have a Hulu Plus account, you can easily sign-up two ways:

1. Go to www.huluplus.com/appletv and register online.  Launch Hulu Plus on your Apple TV, log in with your new credentials and start streaming.

2.  Create a Hulu Plus account directly through Apple TV by using your existing iTunes account and following the sign up instructions on the screen.  If you sign up for Hulu Plus through Apple TV, you will be emailed instructions on how to complete your registration so you can use Hulu Plus on all other supported devices.  After your free 1-week trial ends, your iTunes Account will be charged $7.99 per month as a recurring transaction.

Learn more about setting up Hulu Plus on your Apple TV by watching our Getting Started video.

For those of you who are new to the service, Hulu Plus is the only online premium video subscription that streams current and classic TV programming on demand from hundreds of content partners, including top broadcast networks ABC, NBC, FOX, The CW and Univision. Hulu Plus subscribers can watch on any enabled devices for $7.99/month with limited advertising. For many popular shows on our service, Hulu Plus offers every episode of the current season. Hulu Plus subscribers also have access to back seasons and full runs of some of TV’s greatest shows, including many that were not available online before, in HD whenever possible.

Happy watching!

  • Hi Kate,

    Thanks for posting. Unfortunately we don’t have the rights to stream every show on your Apple TV through Hulu Plus. The rights to stream something to your computer are different from the rights to stream it to your TV, which are again different from the rights to stream it to a mobile device. Content owners are ultimately the ones who decide where their content is shown, and that sometimes means their content might only be available at Hulu.com.

    You’ll be able to log in to Hulu Plus on other devices once you complete your registration. Please visit ( https://secure.hulu.com/users/find_account ) and enter the email address tied to your account in the “Forgot password?” section. Once you submit your email address, you’ll receive an email from us with a link to complete your registration. I hope this helps.

    As always, please feel free to contact us directly if you require additional assistance. You can reach us via email through our support form ( http://www.hulu.com/support/support_form ).

    I don’t know why but many shows that I watch that are on Hulu.com are not available on Apple TV’s hulu…. this pisses me off! Also, I can’t use my AppleTv login to use Hulu Plus. I paid for it on the apple tv through the itunes store.. I should still be able to use it online! Is there any way to do this?

  • Don says:

    I see many people have asked, nobody has answered. When searching:
    movies/genres/documentary/A-Z you can only see a partial list. It goes up to letter D, with no way to access E-Z. Same with all categories… Drama only goes to B. WHY???
