Hulu Desktop

If you are looking for Hulu Desktop, you have come to the right place. We explain what Hulu Desktop is and point you to the official download.

What is Hulu Desktop?

Hulu is a website and an online subscription service that is meant to deliver over the top, or OTT, content that usually takes the form of movies, TV shows, and other live streaming video from TV networks, with such partners as Fox, ABC, CBS, NBC, and Nickelodeon, among others. Its name comes from the Chinese Mandarin word, “hulu”, which either meant as a “gourd”, in reference to it being used as a receptacle for treasure and other precious objects, and as “interactive recording”.

The developers of Hulu insist that both are equally relevant to Hulu’s vision. Despite this, Hulu is not a global brand and is currently offered only to United States (and its territories) and Japan; however, Hulu allows its video clips to be embedded in other sites, and provides web syndication services for leading websites, such as Facebook, Yahoo, MSN, and so on.

Hulu is able to deliver video in several formats, including Flash video, and various resolutions, even up to 720p HD content. The Hulu Desktop Application takes advantage of these capabilities and offer a 10-foot-interface (a readable interface for HDTVs and other display devices that can be easily controlled even from 10 feet away, hence its name).
