OtapediaHulu - Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer)

Hulu is an SVOD (Subscription Video on Demand) service based in the United States that allows users to stream a variety of TV shows in both America and Japan, although the company plans to grow and to have an international expansion in 2021. Co-owned by numerous companies, the most well known being The Walt Disney Company and Comcast. Hulu itself often streams episodes of newer TV shows and various original content like movies and documentaries that are produced within Hulu. It also offers monthly subscription tiers for users to customize how they viewed content.

Although there are many other streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, Hulu differs from all of them in that users can access a variety of series, both old and new, from multiple networks. In general, the user only has to wait a week (or even one day, depending on the series) to watch the episodes of their favorite series after they have been aired. One major appeal for the streaming service (and other similar services) is that there are no additional fees or equipment rentals or installation appointments needed to access any of the content on Hulu. Hulu can also be used on many TVs and other electronic devices like computers, mobile phones, or tablets.

Additionally, in October 2019, Hulu added the option to access and watch its content offline, something that other platforms and sites had available before. Users can download up to 25 titles through five different devices. Content downloaded this way can be viewed for up to 30 days until it expires.

History

The name “Hulu” comes from two words from Mandarin Chinese language, which are “húlú” (gourd), and “hùlù” (interactive recording). This name was chosen at the end of August 2007, just before the website went live. In this early stage of the service’s history, it had no content whatsoever, though it did have an option for visitors to leave their email to become a beta tester, which occurred in October later that year. On October 29th, 2007, the “HULU Syndication Network” was launched. This is the earliest available version of Hulu and was both designed and developed by the NBC Universal Team. The streaming service would later be made available publicly on March 12th, 2008.

In its early years, Hulu used to offer free access to some of its content, though this access was eventually removed, making Hulu a purely subscription-based service. Hulu also has various kinds of subscriptions, each with their own pros and cons. There are four different subscriptions a user can choose from: the basic Hulu service (currently $5.99 a month), basic Hulu without advertisements ($11.99 a month), Hulu and Live TV ($54.99 a month), and Hulu and Live TV ($60.99 a month). The “Live TV” access allows its users to watch TV as its broadcast, making it essentially a replacement for cable. Other add-ons like HBO, Cinemax, and Showtime are also available for an additional fee.
