Hulu Plus for Sony PlayStation 4

November 12th, 2013 by Dave Herman Senior Product Manager, Living Room

At Hulu, we always strive to be at the cutting edge of technology and bring the best possible Hulu Plus 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 Plus 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 Plus 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 Plus at www.huluplus.com to enjoy the entire series.

We hope you enjoy the Hulu Plus experience on your PlayStation®4 as much as we’ve enjoyed building it.

Happy watching!

    You know with all of the glitches and other b.s. issues i have seen so far being a free viewer i don’t want to pay your prices for hulu plus. Even if it is to see old tv shows or new tv shows. it aint worth it. i am FAR BETTER OFF being a FREE VIEWER.

    After a forced update of the Hulu Plus app on my PS3, I no longer can use the PS3 remote to control the app, only the PS3 controller. This is incredibly inconvenient as other apps allow the use of the remote, so now I have to keep both nearby. Why would you remove functionality that makes using your app easier? As a paying Hulu Plus subscriber, this is incredibly disappointing and I hope you plan to fix this soon.

    I think you need to add more movies that aren’t forgien or independent titles. I tried to watch an older movie like bulletproof monk and the last samuri and all you have are trailers for these movies. Your movie selection just isn’t that great.

  • Hi Tessa,

    Thanks for your comment and I’m sorry for the errors! Would you be able to send us the specific episodes you’re seeing this with on our site? You can send the message to ( http://www.hulu.com/support ) and we’d be happy to look into this for you.

    Thanks,

    Ummm … i know HULU is striving to up up to date, if not ahead of the game. Sadly, on the all the ABC News segments with Diane Sawyer, the DATES ARE WRONG. Even the most recent have the date Jan, 2010 on them – over 3 years off!. I thought I was seeing old new casts, but they matched current new topics on other channels. This type of error is …. gawd .. can we say stupid? What is wrong with ya’ll if you can’t even get the dates of news casts right! *shakes her head is discuss.

  • Hi there,
    I’m sorry to hear our Hulu Plus application is giving you trouble on your Sony device. Can you please contact us at ( http://www.hulu.com/support/support_form ) so that we can provide some troubleshooting steps specific to your device in case another episode crashes? As far as the interface, blu-ray players are disc players first and streaming devices second – and sometimes dont have all the capabilities that other devices have. As such, you’ll sometimes see older versions of our software that are not quite as streamlined, but still very capable. We’re always working with each manufacturer to improve the experienceI apologize for any frustration this may cause.
    Thanks,
    Hulu Support

  • This is all nice, but I have a Sony Bravia 50EX645 and my Hulu Plus interface is a straight bar with choices like history, new, etc., and no way to resume a program after it crashes. When will you be doing a decent interface for adults on Bravia. Doesn’t even show episode or series number and you have to go to history to find that out. Hulu Plus has the best shows and worst interface, as all the things I mention are available on Amazon and Netflix streaming on Bravia.
