Today Hulu is rolling out the new live TV Gride Guide on Roku and the Apple TV according to a report from Tech Crunch. Hulu is also updating how it displays content to you. In the past as you scroll around the home page it only shows one TV show or movie at a time.
Here is what the new Hulu Grid Guide looks like:
“Finding something to watch on Live TV is now easier and faster than ever. Today, we are thrilled to share that one of our most requested features, a new and improved Live TV Guide, is rolling out on Roku® devices and tvOS. The guide is also available on Hulu.com.” Said Charlie Moran, Senior Product Manager at Hulu.
Update: This updated Hulu app on Roku is slowly rolling out. Not all Roku models have been updated but over the next few days and weeks, all Roku players should get the new Hulu user interface.
Here is what you will find in the new updated Hulu app:
- Access a full two-week grid guide that lets viewers see what’s ahead, record upcoming
shows, movies, and games in advance, and channel surf to their heart’s content.
- Add channels to “My Channels” that allows for access to their favorite channels and
programs directly from Home and the Live Guide.
- Easily find recommended TV shows and movies that are airing on live TV right now from
- Browse live content collections to quickly jump to sports, news, movies, and kids content
that’s live right now and coming up in the future.

Here is what Hulu posted on Reddit when they first announced this roll out a few weeks ago:
It’s been quite a while since CES, and there’s been a whole lot of chatter about when the new guide is coming. We heard you, and well, we did it you guys! The new Live Guide is ready for Hulu + Live TV subscribers on Hulu.com today, and we’ll be rolling it out to more devices in the coming months.
With this latest release, you can plan 2 weeks of streaming ahead of time, go to the details page, and record, all right from the guide. You’ll also be able to check and see if that one game is blacked out in your area (with plenty of time to get to the bar before kickoff, just in case). If you’re not sure exactly what you’re looking for, you’ll find Live TV genre collections to help you narrow things down and save you some scrolling.
