Hulu Plus updates living room experience even while seeking a buyer

Hulu updates living room experience on Roku and Samsung devices, soon the Nintendo Wii

| HT & Movies News | Posted: May 31, 2013 8:33 pm

Hulu has updated the living room experience for their Plus service. This update comes during a time when rumors of potential buyout suitors continue to pop up. The new update brings with it a new look, search, controls, and a new kids section, which could partially be in response to Netflix losing its Viacom content.

Hulu has updated the experience on Samsung TVs and Blu-ray players, Roku set-top boxes, and--coming soon--Nintendo's Wii. Navigation, controls, search, and artwork have all been improved. Hulu has also introduced theme-based suggestions, including "Movies for Memorial Day" or "Time-Traveling Heroes."

 

Hulu has also added a new kid-friendly section that provides commercial-free children's programming. These updates should roll out to Samsung and Roku devices within 48 hours.
