At Hulu, we always strive to be at the cutting edge of technology and bring the best possible Hulu experience to the latest devices hitting the market. Today, I’m delighted to announce that the Hulu Plus app is available on the highly anticipated PlayStation®4 in the U.S. beginning Friday, November 15, 2013.
With the Hulu app for PlayStation®4, it has never been easier to discover new shows, or find your favorites to catch up on. Our development team in Seattle worked closely with Sony to bring this fantastic viewing experience directly to your living room by simply downloading the app.
When building out the PlayStation®4 experience, we kept in mind how much our users loved the living room experience we brought to the PlayStation®3 and made sure to re-create those same signature features that our users have come to know and love. These updated features for the PS4 include;
- Artwork. Larger and more vivid artwork, easier navigation.
- Trays. Tray-style format allowing you to scroll through recommendations, popular shows and movies, top 100 clips, movie trailers and a “Shows You Watch” feature that lets you jump straight to the latest episodes of the shows you regularly watch.
- Search. Updated search experience providing a simpler way to find content with results that appear directly beneath the search.
- Dedicated Pages. As we are continuing to invest in new content, we are giving you easy access to this content through dedicated pages for Hulu Kids, Originals, British, Latino and Video Games.
- Easy Access. Simple to sign up for Hulu Plus directly from within the app.
Being a Seattleite, there’s never been a better time for me to avoid the rain and sit back to watch “The Wrong Mans,” our latest Hulu Original that just premiered yesterday. As a special offer just for PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®4 users, the first episode of “The Wrong Mans” will be available for free, no Hulu subscription needed, from November 11 to November 26.
All you have to do is download the app on your PS3™ or PS4™ game console to gain access to this special experience. Enjoy Episode 1 for free, and then sign-up for Hulu at www.huluplus.com to enjoy the entire series.
We hope you enjoy the Hulu experience on your PlayStation®4 as much as we’ve enjoyed building it.
