Starting today, we’re excited to roll out a new and improved Hulu Plus experience on Samsung Smart TVs and select Blu-ray players*, Roku set-top boxes, and coming soon to the Wii console from Nintendo. The team of engineers at Hulu’s Seattle office has been hard at work enhancing and refining the user experience on these devices, and we hope you’re going to love the beautiful new Hulu Plus experience we’ve created for you.

Users can now enjoy their favorite shows and summer entertainment, including Hulu original and exclusive shows, through the new Hulu Plus experience on their favorite living room devices. In the fall of last year, we rolled out the new Hulu Plus living room experience, and the feedback from users has been extremely positive. We’re pleased to update the experience across millions of Samsung and Roku devices today, and on Wii soon, including:

    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 new “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.
    Controls. Playback is simplified with clean and intuitive controls: press up or down to display the playback menu, or left or right to fast-forward or rewind.
    Hulu Kids. Brings Hulu Kids section to the living room, letting your family enjoy commercial-free children’s shows from your couch.
    Easy Access. Simple to sign up for Hulu Plus directly from within the app.

We’re excited to show you today’s new Hulu Plus experience as the latest development coming out of our talented team in our Seattle offices. This is all part of our ongoing commitment to innovating on behalf of our users – please let us know what you think of the new design.

Happy summer watching!

*Inclusive of 2012 and 2013 Samsung Smart TVs and select Blu-ray players.
