One of the major perks associated with the internet streaming services is the parallel streaming from multiple devices. Using the multiple screen features that are offered by internet streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and HBO. A number of people can enjoy watching shows simultaneously on the same account. Most of these internet streaming services provide different schemes for the users depending on the number of screens they want to share the content on. These premium schemes can be selected by the users by paying a nominal amount. One of the additional advantages includes the flexibility in terms of devices you can use to watch.
Netflix offers various multiple screens subscriptions plans for the viewers depending on the number of screens they want to enjoy the service on. As many people were confused about Hulu, if they have any multiple screen plan or not. Let’s clear up some fuss among Huluians.
How Many Screens You Can Watch Hulu
The subscribers of Hulu might have been wondering if Hulu provides the users the advantage to use multiple screens at the same time just like Netflix does. With the prolonged use, the user would just discover that they cannot use the same platform on Hulu to watch content on multiple devices at the same time.
Hulu Plus offers a single screen plan only. This implies that at the same time two family members cannot use the same account to watch multiple shows on Hulu. But you watch on 2 devices without any problem.
Unveiling The Mystery
Though an official release from Hulu testifies the provision of a single screen, an experiment that we conducted to use Hulu on two devices ended successfully leaving all our jaws dropped. The quality was equally maintained on both the devices and the streaming was pretty lucid too. However, a warning message displaying “TOO MANY STREAMS ARE WORKING” popped up when we tried to introduce a third device in the row.
However, making Hulu work on two screens at the same time itself feels like hitting the jackpot. However, the subscription plan that we tested on is the Hulu Plus package. Supposedly Hulu has come up with an unlimited screen add-on, which could be added to the Hulu Live TV.
No. of Screen
|Hulu With Live TV||2|
|Hulu + Live TV With Screen Addon||Unlimited Screens|
Hulu Only: Officially one screen but two screens are working fine.
Hulu Live TV: Two screens but could be upgraded to unlimited screens. It cost 14.99/month.
How Much For The unlimited Hulu Screen
As you know Hulu Live comes with premium add-ons like cloud DVR and unlimited screens. As the audience are eager to stream simultaneously on more that one device, Hulu unlimited screen is a good pick. The unlimited add-on comes only with Hulu Live TV.
Total cost of Hulu Live with Unlimited Screen : Hulu Live $39.99 + $14.99 (unlimited Screen Add-on) = $54.98/month.
As the official plan by Hulu justifies the use of a single screen only, any troubles that a user faces while multiple screening is not addressable by the company. Consider yourself as a lucky subscriber if you can use the same account on multiple devices. Grab some popcorn and quench your thirst for movies with multiple screens on Hulu.
