Hulu brings its new interface and live TV to Xbox 360

Hulu is jumping back a generation to revisit its Xbox 360 app. The latest update to the app brings Hulu's new, revamped interface to the twelve-year-old console. Perhaps even more surprisingly, the update also adds support for Hulu's new live TV service.

Hulu's live TV service is still in beta, but it offers up access to more than 50 channels in addition to its normal on-demand streaming library. You can also add premium channels to the experience, including Showtime, HBO and Cinemax. A cloud DVR also ensures you can catch up on any live broadcasts you happen to miss.

If you still have an Xbox 360 kicking around as a media streamer, or simply haven't upgraded to an Xbox One yet, then this should be a welcome effort from Hulu. It's also just pretty interesting that, as The Verge notes, the Xbox 360 is getting the new interface before newer platforms, like PlayStation 4 and Roku.

In any case, you can grab the update and sign up to test Hulu's live TV offering on your Xbox 360 now.
