Hulu embraces Microsoft with their brand new Universal app for Windows 10

We heard rumors that Hulu - the popular TV and movie streaming service - was set to launch their new universal (UWP) app for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, and now we can confirm that it is available for all to download (or upgrade).

Hulu for Windows 10 was written from the ground up using the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) meaning it can run everywhere from Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and the Surface to Windows 10 Mobile smartphones.

The new Hulu app features a new split-view design, improved streaming codec support and excitingly the ability to pin Live Tiles of the app and individual shows to your Start screen. Those Live Tiles will then show you new episodes and update general information. Users can also share and favorite shows from within the app as well.

Hulu for Windows 10 even adds support for Cortana improving the overall user experience. A Hulu app optimized for the Xbox One is expected later this year once Microsoft enables Cortana support for the Windows 10 gaming console.

Overall, the new Hulu experience is fantastic as the app now scales text and video correctly for high DPI displays e.g. 4K laptops.

Grab the new Hulu app for Windows 10 and Mobile and let us know what you think!

Thanks, Victor V., and others, for the tips!
