Hulu's app for iOS now controls Hulu on your Xbox One and PlayStation

Building on its Chromecast remote control support, Hulu Plus will now let you control video playback on your Xbox One, PS3 or PS4 from your iOS device. Once your Hulu Plus app is updated on your console of choice, you'll notice that it will show up under the "cast" button menu just like a Chromecast, giving you more choices to watch your Hulu Plus content on the big screen.

Once casting to your console, the Hulu Plus app on your phone or tablet will continue to work for playback controls and browsing for the next episode to watch. It doesn't look as though you'll need an update to the Hulu Plus mobile app itself either, so you can get right to watching as soon as the console side is updated.

  • Thanks for the article Andrew. Just want to inform all folks who live outside US that Xbox one is a great media Player. If you want to access Hulu Plus and other streaming stations on your Xbox one you can use UnoTelly as I do to get around the geo block.
