Hulu is an American online company. It provides a selection of TV shows, clips, movies, and more. It also supports advertisements in their online video service.

Hulu videos are available only to users in the United States. Hulu is a joint venture of NBCUniversal Television Group (Comcast) and Walt Disney Television (The Walt Disney Company).[1]

Hulu provides original shows. These includes The Hotwives of Orlando, The Morning After, Battleground, The Fashion Fund, among others.

Subscribers can access episodes from ABC, Fox, NBC, and the CW the day after they air. Subscribers can access these episodes on internet-connected TVs, smartphones, game consoles, set-top boxes, and more.

Hulu's subscription service was launched in beta (preview) on June 29, 2010, and officially launched on November 17, 2010, under the branding Hulu Plus. The service remained advertising-supported, but it offers an expanded content library including full seasons, day-after access to current season content and more episodes of shows available. Hulu also launched Hulu Plus apps on other types of devices, including mobile, digital media players, and video game consoles. By the end of 2011, Hulu Plus had around 1.5 million subscribers.

On April 29, 2015, it was announced that the "Hulu Plus" branding would be discontinued, and that the service would be henceforth marketed as simply "Hulu" to place it in-line with its subscription-only competitors. By then, the service had grown to 9 million subscribers.
