How Many People Can Watch Hulu at Once?

By Aparna Jayan / June 8, 2021

Hulu has always been people’s favorite thanks to its extensive collection of some of the very best TV shows, movies, and original programming. They also keep adding the latest content to their on-demand library regularly. And on top of that, one of the biggest advantages of Hulu is that they provide their services starting from just $5.99 per month.

Hulu currently allows only two people to stream content from different devices simultaneously, and this goes for the 'Hulu' and 'Hulu No Ads' plans. So if you want to share the services with someone else, this feature can easily allow you to do so.

However, for the users with the live TV subscription plans ('Hulu Live TV' plan and 'Hulu No Ads + Live TV' plan), there is an 'Unlimited Screens' add-on ($9.99/month) available, which allows any number of users to simultaneously stream as long as they are all connected to the same home network. The add-on also allows access to simultaneous streaming on up to three mobile devices if you are on the go.

The number of screens available for simultaneous streaming is limited to five for premium add-on channels like STARZ, Cinemax, HBO, and Showtime. Out of the five, three devices can be mobile, out-of-home ones.

The streaming service also allows users to create up to six user profiles, which can make sharing much easier. Your whole family can access the service with different profiles for each one of them so that the preferences do not get mixed up.

Overall, Hulu does give users the option to increase the number of screens they can stream simultaneously on - with the additional add-on. To learn more about their packages and plans, make sure to visit Hulu.
