The Hulu Plus app is perfectly capable of pumping out videos on its own to a small screen. With a Chromecast plugged into your TV, it's even able to cast content out to the big screen as well. Now the app is gaining a feature that will give it even more control over your viewing experience. Starting with the latest update, Hulu Plus is capable of becoming a remote control for Hulu content streaming from the Xbox One, PlayStation 3, or PlayStation 4.


The functionality should be relatively straightforward to use. After launching the Hulu Plus app, your game console should be detected automatically (as long as it's turned on and signed into the same Hulu account). A cast button will then appear in order for you to pair your phone or tablet with the device. From then on, you should be able to pause, play, seek, and rewind without having to look around for the game controller.

Here is Hulu's video walkthrough.

    Marvelous! Even though I don't use Hulu Plus often.

    Is the lack of support for the Xbox 360 a technical reason or is Microsoft discouraging companies from doing anything 360 related at this point? :(

    Not that I NEED this feature, my 360 ir remote works just fine as well as SmartGlass if I really want to take 1-2 minutes to pause the show I'm watching.

    Awesome! Now about those ads...

  • h4rr4r

    Now either remove the ads from hulu+ or make this work with regular hulu. I am not paying to watch advertising.
