Hulu Adds Support For Live TV Streaming in Your Browser




Hulu has slowly been rolling out new device support this month. From the new iOS app to the Roku Beta Channel that now anyone can install. Now Hulu has added the ability to stream their live TV beta service on laptops and desktop computers as well.

“To date, we’ve offered Hulu with Live TV on multiple living room and mobile devices, but we know many of you have asked to access our service on your laptops and computers as well. So rather than wait until we’ve finalized our new Web experience, we’re opening up a basic version to Hulu’s live TV plan subscribers so they can stream live TV via their browsers. That means, you can catch the big game, this morning’s news or the premiere of “This is Us” wherever you are.” Said Ben Smith Hulu’s Head of Experience.

Hulu did not disclose any device limitations but as far we can tell Hulu’s lie TV beta will work on most computers and browsers from what we have seen.

Update: according to the Hulu help page Windows and Macs are supported. Supported browsers include Internet Explorer 10 or above, Firefox 15 or above, Safari 5 or above, Chrome, or Edge

Ben Smith went on to say “We’ll be making improvements and adding features continuously as we build the new Hulu experience on the Web.”
