Hello Friends

We’ll be publishing the latest iOS release notes right here. Come back often to check out what’s new and what’s been fixed. Make sure you have our latest app to see all these changes.

iOS v5.9


  • New:Picture-in-picture is back! Supported iPad users can keep browsing Hulu, or even leave our app, and continue watching your shows on this small but mighty new screen.
  • New:Good things are coming. And in preparation for that, you will see an opt-in dialog to accept Hulu notifications. You won’t be receiving them yet, but when the time comes, you’ll be as excited as we are about them.
  • Improvement: We brought back the feature to pause and resume playback with Apple supported headphones and Bluetooth accessories. We are sorry we took it off for a bit!


Heads up! We said goodbye to our Hulu with Live TV app so you can have all your TV in one place. We unified the two Hulu apps Hulu with Live TV and Hulu, into one great on-demand and live TV viewing experience.

If you have ideas for how we can improve your experience on Hulu, or if you think there’s something we’re missing – we want to hear from you. Be a part of the conversation that redefines TV.

iOS v5.8


  • Improvement: Our revamped badging system will help you identify content availability. For example, “New” badges on both live and on-demand shows will point you to the next best episode to watch, whether this is airing right now or if it’s something you missed and it’s now on-demand.
  • Improvement:There’s so much to watch and not enough time. We want to give you as much info as possible with fewer clicks so you can make better choices. Now, whenever you go to the context menu (those three little dots on the corner of a video tile), we are surfacing more details about the show, game or movie.

iOS v5.7


  • Improvement:Fewer clicks, more sports. When you search for a league and select its respective tile on the search results, you will then go to the Games menu with a grid of all available and upcoming matches.
  • Improvement:We keep making small changes that have big impacts on how you interact with Hulu. From perfecting our flip tray and error messaging to killing bugs and improving stability, we believe they add up to a better experience. Enjoy!
  • Improvement:We made fixes to prepare for iOS 11. Get ready to update!


iOS v5.5.1

  • Improvement:We want to get you to the content you love as fast as possible. App launch, signup, login, and menu transitions are way more seamless than before.
  • New:You can now change the formatting of Closed Captions and subtitles. Get creative with size, font and color, go for it!
  • New: No more tap, tap, tap. If you’d like to go back anywhere on the Hulu app, swipe from the left edge of the screen to the right.

iOS v5.4

New: To make things easier, shows and movies in the Expiring collection now display their exact expiration date. Yeah, just like your milk. So don’t make yourself sick – enjoy it now before it goes!

  • New:Countdown timer. Are you still there? A countdown timer lets you know how much time you have left to decide whether you want to Autoplay the next show, go back to browsing, or stick to your resolution of getting eight hours of sleep a day. Pick wisely.
  • Improvement:Now it’s even easier to cast your content. We’ve added the cast icon to Browse, My stuff and to the Home screen.
  • Improvement:Hulu on iOS has been touched up. We added a coat of paint, scoured the floors, hung up new curtains… In a nutshell, our video player and show tiles look nicer now.
  • Fix:Playback of recorded content automatically starts from the beginning. Gone are the days when you scheduled a recording, tuned in 30 minutes into the game (still in progress), and were taken immediately to the live broadcast. No more spoilers!


iOS v5.3
Hulu with Live TV app


  • New:Added original air date information to My Stuff for a better sports experience.
  • New:Have you been kind of wondering what the stacked folders icon means on the new Hulu experience? How about the check mark icon? Well, now it’s easy to decipher. We added labels to your tab bar icons to help with navigation.

iOS v1.2

  • New:We added Subtitles & Captions to the app settings menu. Three taps will take you directly to your device’s Accessibility menu so you can make the changes that you need.

iOS v1.1

  • New:Added a sports onboarding experience so you can follow your favorite teams. Virtual tailgate, anyone?
  • New:We like to show off all the new content that lands on our hands. So, from now on you will be able to spot what’s new on Hulu via our shiny “new episode” badges.

iOS v1.0.3 Hulu with Live TV app


  • New:Went to sleep with the TV on and woke up knee-deep into season 4? We got you covered. You now can turn Autoplay off (or back on if you change your mind…).
