Viewing Hulu content on the go with mobile devices is even easier. The streaming company has finally implemented a long-awaited feature that allows mobile users to download and view videos offline.
The feature has been in frequent demand, not least because similar features already exist on many other streaming platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Starting this week, Apple iOS customers viewing videos through the Hulu app will see a new "Downloads" tab at the bottom of the screen where content can be saved for later when you have no active Wi-Fi or cellular connection.
It is reported that users can download up to 25 tracks on up to five different devices. These downloads are available for 30 days. Although they expire two days after the content begins to play, you can renew an expired download when you reconnect to Hulu's servers. According to Hulu, "the majority" of the library will be available for download, which means you may still find part of the catalog that is limited to streaming. In addition to simply storing your downloaded content, the download area can help discover content with a new "See what's available for download" listing on Apple iOS products, the streaming company is working on updating to Android Devices to publish. If Android users can expect this update, Hulu will announce that it will be released soon, but has not announced any release dates.
