Hulu is one of many options when choosing a streaming service and the main way to access content owned by networks like Fox and Disney. Here’s how you can stream Hulu on your Mac.

Launched in 2007, Hulu is a major player when it comes to streaming platforms. It offers a wide variety of content and can be bundled with other services such as Disney+ and ESPN+, making it an attractive streaming option.

Hulu features several major content libraries, including those from 20th Century Studios, Searchline Pictures, ABC, Freeform, A&E, and FX Network. It also features its own original Hulu programming.

Streaming Hulu is also easy to do and only takes a few minutes to set up.

How to watch Hulu on macOS

To watch Hulu on your Mac, you have a couple of options. You can easily do this through your browser of choice. Hulu supports all major browsers, but we recommend Safari.

  1. Open your browser
  2. Visit the Hulu site
  3. Click Login in the top right corner
  4. Once logged in, browse to the show you want to watch

At the moment, Hulu does not have a dedicated macOS app. However, if you want to use an app, there is a third party app available called Clicker which can be downloaded and used to watch Hulu.
