Using Hulu.com on your phone or tablet browser
Summary
Hulu.com from a mobile browser offers a variety of videos to watch, along with account access to manage both your payment options and Queue.

Here at Hulu, we are determined to help you find the content you love whenever and wherever you want! If you have an iOS, Android, Kindle or Nook device, you can watch popular clips and trailers straight through your mobile browser – for free! If you have a Hulu Plus subscription, you'll also be able to watch full episodes of your favorite shows and movies on-the-go through a supported mobile device.

 

 

Why can't I watch full episodes for free on my mobile device?

The mobile version of the Hulu site is designed to give you quick access to the best clips from this week's shows and more! If you'd like to watch full episodes on your supported mobile device, you will need to download our app and sign up for Hulu Plus. To do this from the mobile site, just tap the "Want Full Episodes?" link at the top right of the page.

 

 

I need to edit my Hulu Plus account information. Can I do this from my mobile device?

We're happy to provide account support on mobile devices - you can update your login or billing information, activate devices, and even manage your email notifications from your mobile device. Tap "Manage Your Account" on any hulu.com page, or head to ( www.hulu.com/account ) and log in, if prompted. 

 

Once you are on your account page, you can change information by tapping on the field you want to change (i.e. your email address to update your email, your billing information to update your card on file, etc.). Enter the new information, and tap the green button at the end to confirm and save the changes.

 

For iOS and Android users, you can also access your account from the Settings menu within the Hulu Plus app. 

 

 

If I can watch clips through my mobile web browser, why can't I watch web-only content there too?

We're excited to be able to stream clips and trailers right through the browser on your mobile device, but at this time, we are limited to what we can stream through the mobile browser. Content licensing agreements and technical limitations prohibit us from streaming full episodes through the browser. However, web-only content is still only accessible from a computer.

 

 

How do I sign up for Hulu Plus on my mobile device?

If this is your first time visiting Hulu.com on your mobile device, you'll see an option to "Try Hulu Plus for free." If you haven't had a free trial before, you'll be offered one week to test out the service on your device.  You can also click on "Want Full Episodes" to sign up for Hulu Plus. On most devices, you can sign up from within the Hulu Plus application.

 

 

I want to see which shows you have. Can I browse all your content from my mobile device?

To browse content available through Hulu Plus, head to ( www.hulu.com/plus/content ). Here you will find all the shows and movies that you can watch from the comfort of your supported device. If you're on an Android device that has the Hulu Plus app available, click the Browse option to the top right when first launching the app. Here you can see what content we have available on your device. 

 

 

How can I search for clips on Hulu.com through my mobile device?

At this time, we are only able to offer a select library of clips on Hulu.com through the mobile browser. For now, we do not have a search function, but we do have several browse filters that'll help you find the clips most interesting to you.

 

 

I'm having trouble signing in on the mobile browser.

If you're having issues signing into your account on your mobile device, please try signing in at this page ( https://secure.hulu.com/account/signin ).

 

 

Why can't I view clips on Hulu.com from my Windows Phone/Blackberry?

We're only able to offer streaming through the mobile browser iOS, Android, Nook and Kindle devices at this time. We'd love to offer support for Windows Phone and Blackberry in the future, so keep checking back.
