can you afford the hulu app
I don't know about you, but I like my wallet a little on the heavy side. It shows that I have money to spend that I will never spend because I am a miser. But you're not like me. You like spending money on things.
That's why you're here, reading this article. Thinking whether the app in question is worth a shot or not. Don't worry, I got what you're looking for. Streaming services and OTT platforms are now all the rage.
With over dozens of them vying for your attention, it is a great idea to review all of them and then decide which one suits you the best.
We will solely focus on the one and only Hulu for today's article. It's one of the streaming service giants that perfectly compete with Netflix. But in many ways, it also acts as a counterbalance, or else a few of these platforms will steamroll the entire industry.
In this article, we will go over the history of Hulu. We will also discuss the positive qualities of Hulu, its negative qualities and then follow up with a conclusion to gauge whether this streaming platform is worth your buck or not. This article is by no means an end-all, and if we say something that you don't relate to, please feel free to let us know.

Hulu App: How Did It Start?

The streaming services started in the year 2007-08, intending to provide value for streamers who want both on-demand app and TV content. It was so profitable that by 2010, Hulu, as a streaming service was the second most used video consuming platform online. Which platform was on the first spot? Youtube.
Yes, that's right. Hulu at one point was competing against youtube. Can you believe that! Bagging a couple of Emmy awards in the meantime also upped their ante.  Long story short, after an era of IPO's and acquisitions, Hulu is still one of the top dogs and by all accounts, it is here to stay.
As of now, Disney owns around 60% of all Hulu's shares, and you know that the big mouse isn't someone who backs down. Just have a look at who controls the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In any case, Hulu is still one of the most commonly used streaming platforms.
There must be a couple of reasons for it to stay this long.

Here Are Some of the Reasons Why Hulu App Is Good

Critically Acclaimed Shows

Let's be honest, Netflix streaming app has acquired almost all the films you can think about in the past years. Followed in by Hot-star and amazon prime. But in their bid to take in as many films as they can, they have sacrificed a lot on the quality of their content. Netflix users tend to feel a lot of paradox of choice when choosing their shows.
There are so many shows available on Netflix that most of the time is spent trying to figure out which one do you want to watch. Every choice means that you have to watch something that you don't' know if you'll like. And people hate wasting time that they can't enjoy.
This is not the case with Hulu.
As we have mentioned before, this is the hub for quality shows and documentaries produced as well. They also sometimes get film releases which are always a joy to watch. This is why we will have to give the edge to the Hulu app in this case.
Just give us the quality without the confusion.

Get To Know The Expiring Shows List

This is exclusive to Hulu. Hulu can recommend your preferred film in genre based on what film you liked or disliked. Liked something? Thumbs up, didn't you like it? Thumbs down. It is that easy.
At the same point, Hulu also informs you of the coming shows in the future. And at the same time, which shows are being dropped out.
This way, you can make sure to catch up on some of your shows or films that you like before they are expired.

Now Let's Focus On The Cons Of The Hulu App

Pricing Model

Hulu can sometimes act as your neighboring loan shark. Adding in nickel and dime at every turn.Whether you want to watch on more than 2 devices or if you want to add more than 150 hours on the DVR. All these costs can add up significantly.
At the same time, other streaming platforms do this better than the Hulu App.
For instance, Hulu with ads (Yes, there is that too here) is around $7. Compared to Netflix at $9, it might look more cost-effective, but this plan is not included in the mobile download.
At the same point, Disney Plus also starts with $7 but with none of Hulu's problems.

Technical Problems

Okay, this is not just with Hulu, but the complaints are still complaints. The shown ads can be a tad bit louder than the shows you were watching. Now, this isn't good.
"We're having trouble playing this" phrase has plagued the Hulu App too.
Buffering issues can be an annoyance from time to time.
Considering that Hulu App is costlier than its competition, you expect these problems not to show their ugly side. But unfortunately, this is not the case.


Overall, there are problems with Hulu. The app is comparatively expensive, the technical issues are sometimes everywhere, and Hulu's content library is not the biggest. But whatever is available will surely take you by storm. If there is nothing to stream, you can be content with watching its live TV.
As we mentioned before, the Hulu App is for streamers who want both on-demand app and TV content. Hire dedicated app developers and build your own video streaming platform like Hulu.
