Back at the end of December, last year, we have given a short review to the official Hulu Plus app in the Windows Store for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users, as well as Windows RT users. Now, we’re taking about the first update that it has received.
If you are living in the United States or Canada, then you have probably heard about Hulu by now, the TV and web service that brings unlimited instant streaming of TV shows and popular movies. The Hulu app has landed in the Windows 8 Store for more than a year now and at the moment it has an average rating of 3.3 from almost 10,000 inputs. As you can see, it’s not the best rating around and that’s why Hulu has decided to issue an update to take care of some problems.
Windows 8 Hulu App gets some new features
Hulu Plus offers unlimited instant streaming of current hit shows and acclaimed movies. Watch current season episodes of shows like Modern Family, The Office, Family Guy and many more. Requires subscription. New to Hulu Plus? Try it FREE.
According to the changelog of the Hulu Plus app for Windows 8, the enhanced captions support feature has now been brought to Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users across those who are using the application in the United States and Japan, as well. Besides this, there are other bug fixes and performance enhancements that have been brought to the app. Don’t try opening Hulu Plus from another country than the above mentioned or you will get a message like the one from below.
I will be frank with you and tell you that I tried changing my IP address to one from Japan or the United States, but it hasn’t worked. We can only hope that Hulu will extend its services to European users, as well. Until then, follow the link from below, those who can enjoy its offering.
