Let’s get started!
Advanced Search Operators
As Hulu features a lot of content and there’s just one search bar to find what you’re looking for let’s ease down your searching process. To narrow down your search, you can use advanced search operators like “+”, “:” and so on. For example, if you use a plus symbol between two search terms like “fey + Poehler” then it will find stuff with both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler appearing.
Change the Video Quality
Why watch in normal quality when you have an option to watch in HD or ultra HD, maybe! Don’t wait for your Internet speed to automatically adjust video quality, in fact take control yourself. Instead of always watching content in “Auto” quality, you can also at times try HD and Ultra HD video quality. You can change the video quality whenever you like and set it as per your preference.
Mark as Favorite
Adding your favorite content to watchlist is a great way so that you don’t miss on anything. On Hulu, you can also mark movies and TV shows as favorite so that you can watch it anytime later without missing it. Search any movie or show, as soon as its page appears on screen, and then mark it as favorite.
Customize Subtitle Style
Watching a movie with subtitles has its own set of pros. You can never miss on any important dialogue during action scene or when the actors are literally whispering. So, considering the fact how crucial subtitles are while watching a movie Hulu allows you to tweak the appearance of your subtitles just how you like it. Make it as comfortable and readable as you want.
Set Parental Controls
If you’re quite concerned what content your kids are watching on Hulu, you can anytime take better control by setting up parental control on your account which will restrict them from watching anything in-appropriate. To do so launch the Hulu mobile app on your smartphone and head on to kids’ section. Now tap on “Lock for kids” option to enable Parental control on your account. Set up a password and you’re then good to go!
