Back at CES in January Hulu announced a new grid guide and user interface. Now Hulu has rolled out the new user interface on the Xbox One and iOS with more device support coming in the months to come.
Update: Hulu reached out to Cord Cutters News to confirm that the new User Interface is live on iOS and for some Xbox One customers. Currently, the Xbox One update is in testing so some Xbox owners will get it but not all. If you have the new Hulu app on Xbox One you are one of the lucky Xbox owners to get a first look at the new user interface. The Apple TV update is still on its way and not live yet.
Update #2: Cord Cutters News has also confirmation from Hulu some Android Pie devices have started to receive this new updated Hulu user interface as part of Hulu’s A/B testing just like with the Xbox One. Please leave us a comment and let us know if you received this latest update and on what device.
Now as you scroll around the home page it only shows one TV show or movie at a time. Hulu, with this newly updated app, will add the ability to see a grid of shows on the screen at once. Instead of seeing one show, you will see a handful of shows as you scroll through the guide.
Here is how Hulu describes the new iOS update:
Introducing the new and improved Home menu on Hulu! The redesigned Home experience makes it easier to discover new content so you can spend less time searching and more time watching. Clearer action items allow you to quickly learn more about any titles you’re curious about.
Here is what the new User Interface will look like: (Note: each device will have a slightly different look and feel especially on mobile devices.)
Here is what Hulu with live TV looks like on the new Hulu iPad version: (Sadly still no full grid guide.)
Hulu also announced plans to bring the new grid guide to Hulu’s live TV service. It has started to roll out on Hulu.com but not all devices have this new grid guide yet:
