Hulu offers some of the very best TV shows, movies, and other forms of entertainment through its streaming service. The biggest flex of Hulu is that it has subscription plans that fit everyone's budget. Apart from the long list of premium and network add-ons available on the platform, Hulu also provides its users with a wide range of additional perks, such as adding multiple devices to the home network.

One of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to choosing Hulu as a streaming service is how many devices can one have on Hulu? Well, the answer is that you can activate your Hulu account on as many devices as you want and enjoy the service. The only catch is that simultaneous streaming is possible only with two devices at a time.

If you are a Hulu Live TV subscriber, you get the option to access the 'Unlimited Screens' add-on to your plan. This allows you to add an unlimited number of devices to your home network and watch the programs simultaneously from different screens. This is the case as long as the devices are connected to your home network.

When it comes to accessing Hulu from different screens outside your network, users can add a total of three different devices and watch them simultaneously. As for premium channels like Cinemax, HBO Max, STARZ, and Showtime, only a total of five devices can be used to stream them simultaneously. This number decreases to three when the mobile devices are outside your home network.

As far as simultaneous streaming goes, Hulu does offer a pretty decent number. If you are someone who likes to share your home network with family and friends, then make sure to have a look at the various subscription plans and features offered by Hulu.
