How many streams on Hulu? How many screens simultaneously on Hulu? Is Hulu right for me? Cord cutters often look for streaming services like Netflix that allow multiple streams. You’re probably here for the same reason and we understand why. To begin with, none of us likes to spend lavishly on entertainment. Secondly, whether you like to admit it or not, everyone seeks to get more for less. Luckily for us, some of the subscription-based VOD services do have features that permit more than one user to stream simultaneously using the same platform.
If you’ve ever used Apple’s Family Sharing feature, you’ll know how great it is to be able to pay for one iTunes account and have your entire family share your iTunes and App Store purchases. In essence, the ability to stream across devices at once saves people tons of money. Moreover, having a couple of streaming accounts under the same roof is like having multiple Cable TV subscriptions, which does not make any sense.
How Many Streams on Hulu & Hulu Live
We ran an experiment to see. And guess what? We were able to stream Hulu live simultaneously on two devices without any lags or interruptions. Yes, you can watch Hulu + Live TV on two screens simultaneously.
However, as we attempted to watch Hulu on a third device, a warning popped up saying “too many streams in operation”.
As hulu rolled out the multiple screen package, people have started complaining that only now only one screen is working. So, from now you can watch Hulu on 2 screens on every Hulu’s plan.
Cost To Watch On Unlimited Screens?
Hulu has released a new addon that let all huluians watch Hulu Live on multiple devices simultaneously. The add-on cost $9.99/month and works only with Hulu live. If you are a Hulu subscriber then this addon is not for you.
To Sum up, Hulu Live with unlimited screen would cost you: [$64.99/month + $9.99]
Another Hulu High Point
In case you didn’t know, last year in December, Hulu revealed that users can create up to 6 profiles to watch content as per their tastes and preferences. What this implies is that up to six people can make a separate profile using one account and Hulu will store each person’s viewing history and Watchlist for a more personalized experience. Although these six individuals will not be able to watch Hulu at once on different streaming players, they could definitely share the account to watch whenever others aren’t.
For example, if your classmate isn’t subscribed to Hulu but requests you to allow him/her to use your account to catch up on ‘Casual’, you can share your username and password and they’ll be able to enjoy the content too.
But, There’s Always a but!
Creating up to 6 profiles on Hulu is official and there are no restrictions on the number of devices you could connect to Hulu. But did you know that if you try sharing your password recklessly, with multiple people, you could actually be committing a Federal Crime!
So enjoy streaming on two screens and up to six profiles on your account but be careful about password sharing. Also, you don’t want people to misuse your account information.
Hope this helps. Do share if you enjoyed this secret.
