What is Hulu?
Hulu is a two-tier IPTV service, streaming mostly TV shows.

What does it cost?
Free for standard Hulu - has reduced content and is advert supported.
$7.99 for Hulu Plus - still has adverts, but fewer of them.

How do I watch?
Technically it's only available to those living in the USA.

However, by using a proxy, VPN or DNS 'hack', those outside of America can watch on their browser. For an all-in-one solution, that's quick to disable, you can also use a browser plug in such as Hola or Media Hint.

Can I watch via an app?
Watching via an app is a little more difficult, some devices need to be the US/North American version to be able to install the app, e.g. Roku. However, if you want to try, there are apps for Windows Phone, Android and iOS devices (including Apple TV), as well as Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles. Again you'll need to perform the same DNS settings change that you do for Netflix: Netflix USA on UK equipment

Anything else?
Hulu's adverts appear to be hard coded to the stream, i.e. ad blocking software does not remove them.
