How do I use the Hulu app on iPad?
Summary
With the updated Hulu on iPad, you can quickly navigate to your favorite shows, along with play videos while you browse the app.

 

 

What are Shows You Watch?

The Shows You Watch feature is a great and easy way to keep up with your favorite shows on Hulu. Right below the large promotional images on the main page of the Hulu app, you'll see the Shows You Watch section with commonly watched shows on your account. Here you can quickly navigate to your favorite shows and pick up right where you left off!

 

 

Where is my Watch History?

Your History hasn't gone too far! To reach your History, begin by opening the Navigation bar by tapping the menu button in the upper left corner of the home screen. Then, just tap the gear icon next to your name to access and edit your History. This, in turn, will also affect the Show You Watch section.

 

 

How do I find my Queue?

Your Queue is located right in the Navigation bar, which you can open by tapping the menu button (the one with three horizontal lines) in the upper left corner of the screen. You can also reach this by swiping right from the left edge of the screen. From there, you can quickly access your Queue, our TV and Movie sections, and more.

 

 

How do I add videos to my Queue?

With the Shows You Watch section, hopefully you won't need to use your Queue quite as often. But when you do want to save a specific video to watch later, all you have to do is just select the video you want to add, and then tap the "+ queue" option.

 

 

Where are my Favorites?

To reach your Favorites, begin by opening the Navigation bar by tapping the menu button in the upper left corner of the screen. Then, just tap the gear icon next to your name to access your Favorites, History, and Settings. You'll also be able to Log Out from here, as well as contact Support.

 

You can also find all of your favorite and most-watched shows on the main screen of the Hulu app under the Shows You Watch section. 

 

 

How do I search for videos?

The magnifying glass icon  is located at the top-right of the app. Tap there to begin searching. 

 

 

Where is my Watchlist?

Your Watchlist is located under the main promotional image on the front page of the Hulu app. To access your Watchlist from anywhere within the Hulu app, tap the main menu button at the top left corner and then select Watchlist. For more information about getting started with and using Watchlist, visit this article

 

 

 

How do I turn on/off Autoplay?

To change your settings, such as Autoplay, begin by tapping the menu button in the upper left corner of the browse window. Then, tap the gear icon next to your name to open your Settings. From here, you can toggle Auto-Play on/off and also clear your temporary image cache.

 

 

How do I turn on/off Closed Captions?

To change your Closed Captions settings, just tap on the gear wheel icon during video playback to open the video settings. 

 

 

Where do I go to Logout?

First, access the Navigation bar by pressing the menu button in the upper left corner of the home screen. Then just tap the gear icon next to your name to Log Out and access other Settings.

 

 

How do I use the Browse While Watching feature?

With Hulu on your iPad, you can keep browsing while the video you are watching continues to play in a smaller window on the bottom of the screen. While watching, just tap the double arrow button on the playbar to shrink or maximize the player window. You can also pinch to zoom.

 

 

How do I use Handoff with Hulu?

A recent addition to the Hulu app enabled the ability to access Apple's Handoff feature. To use Handoff with Hulu, your devices will need to meet the following requirements: 

  • iOS device running 8.1 or above
  • Mac device running OS X Yosemite or above
  • Both devices are using the same iCloud account
  • Both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network
  • Both devices have Bluetooth enabled

When transitioning from Hulu on one device to another, you'll see the Hulu icon at the bottom left of your iOS lock screen or your Mac dock. To learn more about Handoff, visit Apple's Support site
