Hulu finally launched the offline ad for its users … well, at least for some of them.
In a blog post, Hulu announced today that it would allow the offline display of some of his most popular shows, citing in particular Hulu originals like The Handmaid's Tale and affiliate content like Family Guy, How I Met Your Mother and HE.
According to the post, users can download up to 25 tracks on 5 different devices and have up to 30 days to view their downloaded content. Once you start watching, this content expires in two days and needs to be renewed.
To put those numbers in perspective, Hulus Plan is a bit stricter than Netflix's, which allows you to download up to 100 titles to one, two, or four devices, depending on the plan you're using, but similar to Amazon, which includes you can keep videos for around 30 days.
The catch is that Hulu's offline viewing mode is only available to people who subscribe to the ad-free version of the service for $ 11.99, and only to iOS devices. Both requirements are likely to change in the coming months if Android support is available. Currently, however, this will only be a slightly limited version.
Take the Handmaid & # 39; s Tale with you
According to Hulu, thousands of titles – both shows and films – will be available for viewing and downloading from today. More will be added soon.
To find something to download, press Search for a title in Hulu. If it is available for download, a download icon will appear on the details page. This sounds pretty similar to the Netflix system and should make the distinction between non-downloadable content and downloadable content fairly straightforward.
While Hulu's off-line display mode is a bit late for the party, it comes one month ahead of Apple TV Plus and Disney Plus, two major streaming services that could steal Hulu's third place on the streaming service podium.
To enable downloads on your iOS device, visit the App Store to download the latest version of the Hulu app, which is available for download today.
The price written on this page is true as the time it is written. It may change at any moment.
