Watching Hulu content while on the move with a mobile device has now become a lot easier. The streaming company has finally implemented a much-needed feature that allows mobile users to download and watch videos while offline.
The feature is widely requested, not least because similar functionality is already available on many competing streaming platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Starting this week, Apple iOS customers viewing videos & # 39; s via the Hulu app will need a new tab & # 39; Downloads & # 39; see at the bottom of the screen where content can be stored for later when you do not have an active Wi-Fi or mobile connection.
It has been reported that users can download up to 25 titles on up to five different devices. These downloads are available for 30 days, and although they expire two days after you start playing the content, you can extend an expired download when you reconnect to the Hulu servers. Hulu says "most of the library" will be available for download, which means that you may still find a part of the catalog that is limited to streaming. In addition to easily saving your downloaded content, the Downloads section can also help you discover content thanks to a new "See what can be downloaded" list.
Although the initial roll-out of the Hulu & # 39; s download section is limited for Apple iOS products, the streaming company is working to also release the update on Android devices . Regarding when Android users can expect that update, Hulu says it will be soon, but has not announced release dates.
