Meet The New Hulu

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Hulu has come up with a new look.

The online video service is now using larger, more vivid artwork to feature previous night’s TV episodes and new additions to Hulu. The site has also  implemented a tray-style format for users to browse and discover content. For registered and logged-in users, Hulu is highlighting the “Shows You Watch,” and they can now  jump directly to the shows they watch on Hulu.

If you scroll down the Hulu homepage now,  you’ll find the most popular episodes on Hulu this week, and shows and movies that are recommended for you based on the videos you watch. You will find ‘Staff Picks’ on the homepage and across the site. You will also find a new site navigation. You  can use the “Browse” menu now to jump to popular content, content recently added to the site, specific networks, recommendations, and so on. The Hulu Search bar at the top of the page has also been updated.

And if all that were not enough, Hulu will  feature the next episode if you’re in the middle of a series, point you to the first episode if it’s a new show for you, or call out the latest episode if you’re all caught up.

Hulu’s new look and feel is automatically rolling out to users over the next several days. If you can’t wait that long, check out the new Hulu at http://new.hulu.com.
