Today, we are excited to announce that we've created a new Hulu application for the Apple Watch that brings some of the most important features of a remote control directly to your wrist and allows you to control your viewing experience with a few simple taps.
At Hulu, we are constantly trying to find new and innovative ways to make the viewing experience as seamless as possible for our viewers. The Hulu application on the Apple Watch is the perfect opportunity to explore the Apple Watch OS and experiment with ways to integrate the Hulu experience into the popularity of wearable platforms.
With the Hulu app, you will be able to play, pause and rewind your favorite shows on Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4 with a tap on your wrist. You will also be able to toggle captions from the Hulu app for Apple Watch.
You will be able to connect directly to an existing Chromecast or Xbox ONE, PS3 or PS4 device that's streaming Hulu, and control it right when you launch your Hulu app on the Apple Watch.
If you watch on Apple TV, you will have to first launch a Hulu stream via Apple TV on your phone, and then you will be able to use your Apple Watch Hulu application as a remote.
Hulu for Apple Watch is now available in the Apple Watch app store. Stay tuned for more updates and feature additions.
The Hulu app for Apple Watch was implemented by the mobile team intern, Rahin Jegarajaratnam who was mentored by Bradley Snyder along with the iOS dev team. Our intern program is unique in that we actively use it as an opportunity for interns to work on projects that directly touch consumers.
