Hulu Plus update adds dedicated kids section and new discovery features

It's been quite a while since we've heard from Hulu but a new update is available right now on the Google Play store that has some nice additions to it. Rather than sticking with the typical bug fixes and improvements, Hulu has added a new dedicated section for kids. Knowing that Hulu contains some stuff you might not want your children watching they have also introduced a new Kids Lock that feature allows parents to restrict access to Kids-only content on their devices.

Finally, if you have issues with finding something to watch on Hulu, they've amped up their discovery tools as well. This isn't overly exciting but if you're a channel flicker like me, it might help. When you open up the app, they now show you more of their available content on the homepage giving you options of new shows and movies to choose from.

  • It still sucks that I pay for Hulu Plus and can't use it on my rooted device. I am more likely to watch a 30min episode from Hulu on my portable device than a 2 hour movie from Netflix. Has anyone seen a recent workaround for Android 4.1.2?
