Kigo Hulu Video Downloader Review

Hulu is an excellent option to watch popular TV shows, and 75+ top channels with your favorite live sports, news, and events. Unlike other video streaming services (Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus), Hulu continues to offer users both a strong on-demand streaming library and a robust live TV option.


Why you Choose Hulu

Provide rich on-demand library resources

Hulu's on-demand library has always been about TV shows and that emphasis remains. The service offers hundreds of seasons and thousands of episodes from major networks. The rise of network-specific streaming services, like Paramount+ and NBC's Peacock, has cut into this content library.

A wide variety of cable TV shows for you to choose from

Hulu offers many cable TV shows. For fans of animation, there's Archer, Adventure Time, Bob's Burgers, and Futurama. Drama shows include Bones, Killing Eve, The Orville, and The X-Files. Comedy fans can watch 30 Rock, Broad City, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Letterkenny, Malcolm in the Middle, Scrubs, and Seinfeld.

Like Netflix and Amazon, Hulu also creates original content, like Castle Rock, Harlots, Helstrom, High Fidelity, Little Fires Everywhere, Marvel's Runaways, The Handmaid's Tale, and Veronica Mars. Hulu does produce some original movies, such as Happiest Season, Palm Springs (which was nominated for a Golden Globe), and Run.

Documentaries / Anime / Live TV and Sports on Hulu

Hulu’s documentary section features a lot of celebrity biopics; from The Beatles to B.B. King, there are documentaries about the life and times of many beloved musicians.

Hulu has hundreds of anime titles, such as My Hero Academia, Himouto! Umaru-chan, and One-Punch Man. Older classics, such as Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, Ghost in the Shell, Naruto Shippuden, Ranma 1/2, Rurouni Kenshin, Slayers, and Trigun are also present.

Hulu + Live TV's channel lineup should please most general audiences, with a deep lineup of content across the news, entertainment, and sports categories. News channels include ABC News, CBS News, CNBC, CNN, CNN International, Fox Business, Fox News, and MSNBC. Entertainment coverage is similarly varied with options such as Animal Planet, Cartoon Network, Discovery, Disney, Food Network, FX, HGTV, National Geographic, SYFY, TBS, Travel Channel, TLC, and TNT. You also get the movie channels, FXM and TCM.

Hulu Download Function

Hulu claims that “Hulu (No Ads) and Hulu (No Ads) + Live TV subscribers can download tons of shows and movies from the Hulu streaming library.” Please note that the download function can only be achievable with Hulu app on supported mobile device (iOS 13.0 and above, Android 5.0 and above, or Fire OS 5 or higher.).

Hulu Download Limit

You can have up to 25 downloads on five supported mobile devices at one time. These limits are set at the account level, not per profile or device. If you exceed one of these limits, you’ll get a popup alert with the next steps.

You’ll have access to your unwatched downloads for 30 days unless the episode or movie expires from our streaming library before that. Once you start playback, you’ll have 48 hours to finish watching before the download expires. If a download expires before you’ve watched it, you may be able to renew it.
