Hulu is an American online company and partially ad-supported streaming service offering a selection of TV shows, clips, movies, and other streaming media on Hulu.com. Hulu subscribers can access episodes in HD (when available) from ABC, the CW, Fox, and NBC the day after they air, via Internet-connected devices. Hulu offers both a free service (only available on PCs and laptops) and, for a monthly subscription fee, a more extensive Hulu-Plus service available not only on computers and laptops, but as well on Internet-connected game consoles, set-top boxes, smartphones, tablets, TVs, and other devices.
As of 2015 Hulu is offered only to users in Japan, and the United States and its overseas territories. Other regions are blocked by IP address location. Hulu provides video in Flash Video format, including many films and shows that are available in 288p, 360p, 480p, and in some cases, 720p. Hulu also provides web syndication services for other websites including AOL, Facebook, MSN, Myspace, XfinityTV, and Yahoo!.
Hulu is a joint venture of Disney–ABC Television Group (The Walt Disney Company), Fox Broadcasting Company (21st Century Fox), and NBCUniversal Television Group (Comcast).
