A main feature in the revamped interface will include a new Live TV guide designed for subscribers of Hulu’s live TV service. The Live TV guide is meant to help Hulu subscribers find something to watch when they’re not seeking out a specific show.
According to TechCrunch, the new Live TV guide will be accessible through a lightning bolt icon in the main navigation bar. Once clicked, it will take users to an interface that resembles a cable-style TV guide with info on live TV that’s currently airing.
In addition to the Live TV guide, Hulu will introduce a “Stop Suggesting” feature that lets you permanently remove shows you don’t want to watch from your Hulu recommendations, and it will allow you to remove items from your Watch History.
Hulu also plans to implement a tool to allow you to manually mark shows as watched, which can be useful when you watch Hulu shows off of the Hulu service, and specific to the Winter Olympics, Hulu will add a dashboard for watching specific sports.
Hulu’s planned interface changes come as the company hits a new milestone – 17 million subscribers. Hulu today announced that it closed its fiscal 2017 year with over 17 million subscribers across its subscription on demand and live TV plans in the United States, an increase of five million subscribers since 2016.
Hulu’s new features will be introduced in the spring of 2018.
