Streaming TV is the in-thing at present. But there's life beyond Netflix and HBO, since many other companies offer a similar service, as is the case of Hulu, a distributor of audiovisual contents over the Internet that offers productions of different channels.
Hulu, another online on-demand television alternative
You probably already know what Netflix and HBO are all about, so there's no need for us to go into detail about how Hulu: Stream TV, Movies & more works, as it's very similar to the previous two. It also comes along with a web service and an application for Windows PCs to be able to log in from your browser or desktop. And this is the official Android app that allows us to watch any content wherever we are.
Its catalog includes all sorts of series, shows, and movies, many of which are produced by communication groups and channels of the likes of FOX, NBC, FX, ABC or Cartoon Network. But not only does it offer us access to on-demand TV to watch series such as Fargo, Southpark or The Walking Dead as we can also watch live events.
It comes along with the following features and functions:
- Recommendation of contents depending on what we usually watch.
- Access to live events.
- Support for up to 6 different user profiles.
- Follow your favorite programs.
- Fliptray function to browse while watching a program to see what's up next.
The price in the USA ranges between $7.99 and $39.99 per month depending on the option chosen.
What if I don't live in the USA?
Well, unfortunately, if you don't live in the states you're not going to be able to use Hulu because these companies do whatever it takes to make sure their contents aren't shown outside the areas where they offer their services. You might be able to download the APK, install a VPN and watch its programs with a fake IP. In any case, you'd still need to make the monthly payments through an American credit card or bank account.
