Hulu redesigns Apple TV app with new layout, features

updated 02:56 pm EDT, Tue March 19, 2013

Makes ease-of-use upgrades

Hulu has launched a new version of its Apple TV app for Hulu Plus subscribers. The app uses a new interface, for example adding TV, Movies, Kids, and Latino content categories to the top navigation bar. Each category highlights both new content and any series a person already watches. Along similar lines, the app as a whole sports a new "Shows You Watch" tray, which makes it easier to return to commonly-watched material.

Playback has received some minor streamlining. Clicking Play on a show will now automatically start the latest episode, and while a video is active, holding down Select will bring up a Subtitles and Audio menu where captions can be turned on mid-stream.

To get the new app people must have an Apple TV running the latest firmware. Forcing an update is possible by going to the General menu under Settings.
