Can Hulu Cast?

Hulu makes sense for so many Cord Cutters in the U.S. It has a huge catalog of the most popular TV shows and movies on one plan. On another plan, it gives subscribers the biggest channels in live sports, news, and entertainment on Hulu's live TV streaming service. Plus, Hulu offers a la carte access to premium channels like Showtime and HBO all on a single bill.

Today, so much centers around our phones, including our video watching. Hulu has apps for Android and iOS so you can watch all these shows, movies, and live streams in your pocket and on the go. But what if you want to switch from the smallest screen to the big screen?
