Hulu Desktop Support Comes To An End January 31st

Dave Zatz —  January 12, 2014


Several months ago Hulu quietly pulled their Desktop software from download to barely a ripple in the blogosphere – which I found somewhat surprising giving the company’s various machinations as they decide what they want to be when they grow up and who controls the purse strings. Well, Hulu has now gone ahead and made it official:

Hulu Desktop had a good run, however we’re sorry to share that it will no longer be supported after January 31st, 2014. This means, it may still work for the time being, but we will no longer be actively updating it or fixing bugs. Instead, we’re going to put all our efforts towards refining and improving the other ways you can continue to watch Hulu on your PC, Mobile, and Living Room devices.

(Thanks Brad!)

  1. I stopped subscribing to Hulu Plus after being hit with 2 minute cult propaganda “commercials”

  2. You can’t throw that out without explanation Zatz ;)
    The bromantic PS “Perfect Day” commercial makes up at least 50% of the spots I am fed.

  3. If you’re not familiar with the 2-minute Scientology spot, consider yourself lucky.

  4. banner ad on ZNF for this article was for Hulu Plus. loving it. :)

  5. I wanted to watch something and fired up on Windows Media Center (plug-in to start it full screen automagically).

    Still works, I don’t know what “bug” fixes it hasn’t been updated in a long time that I know of and I use it sparingly for the most part.
