1. An Account: To start watching Hulu, you’ll first need an account - visit the official signup page.
If this is your first time signing up for a Hulu subscription, you'll be offered a one-week free trial to test out the service. If you want to watch Hulu without commercials, we offer a No Commercials plan for $11.99 per month. Our Limited Commercials plan, available for $7.99 per month, includes a modest amount of commercials. Your trial subscription will automatically roll over into a paid subscription after the trial – if you don't want to keep the subscription, be sure to cancel before the eighth day. If you've had a Hulu subscription or trial in the past, you won't be eligible for the free trial, but the signup process is the same. Just select "Start my subscription" after you see the message alerting you that you will be charged.
2. A Device: Next, you'll need some sort of internet-enabled device, such as a supported internet-connected TV, smart phone, or gaming system.
If you’d like to watch Hulu from your computer, just visit hulu.com and log in at the top-right corner of the page. Then, you can browse for a show or movie and start watching.
3. An Internet Connection: Finally, you’ll want to make sure that your internet connection meets our system requirements. We recommend a download speed of 1.5 mbps for Standard Definition videos and of 3.0 mbps for High Definition videos.
