Hulu's offline downloading feature allows its users to download and save videos locally for viewing when they don't have access to the internet. With this update, Hulu now joins the ranks of other streaming services like Netflix and Disney Plus that have long allowed offline downloading.
In this article, you will learn how to download and save episodes and movies from Hulu for later offline watching. To begin, however, you must get familiar with the restrictions of Hulu's download function.
Why Should You Use a Hulu Video Downloader?
Hulu Device Limit
While you're free to download the Hulu app and activate your account on as many compatible devices as you'd like, only two of those devices may be used to stream video content at the same time. There may be an error message stating that "there are too many videos playing at once" if you attempt to stream from a third device.
Hulu Download Limit
Whether you want to know if your Hulu downloads are limited in any way, the answer is yes. The maximum number of concurrent Hulu downloads per account is 25 across all of your supported mobile devices. It's important to note that limitations like these are established on the account level, rather than on a per-user or per-device basis.
Video Expired or Removed
Any Hulu content you've downloaded but haven't viewed yet will be kept in your library for 30 days unless they are deleted from the library sooner. Starting the video will give you 48 hours to finish watching it. Not only that, but Hulu is getting rid of a number of movies, so if you want to save them forever, you'd better download them right now.
How to Download on Hulu with the Official Download Function?
You need a Hulu (No Ads) or Hulu (No Ads) + Live TV subscription in order to download shows from Hulu. In addition, Hulu content may only be downloaded into compatible mobile devices. Supported devices include iOS, Android, Amazon Fire tablets, etc.
Worth mentioning, the selection of downloadable content on Hulu is not comprehensive. If a movie or TV episode can be downloaded, a down arrow will appear next to the title. Here's how to download on Hulu with the official download function:
- Launch the Hulu app.
- Click on the show or movie you wish to watch and save to your computer.
- Click the download button next to the movie or episode title to start the download process.
- The download button for a completed movie or TV show will become white and include a checkmark.

1. What Are the Hulu Plans?
Hulu has a number of subscription tiers to cater to users of varying incomes and preferences. You are free to change your plan or add-ons whenever you choose without incurring any additional expenses or being locked into a contract.

|Hulu + Live TV|
|The Disney Bundle||$13.99/Month||$19.99/Month||$69.99/Month|
2. Does Hulu Have a Free Trial?
Certainly, you may sign up for a Hulu free trial! Both the Hulu (ad-supported) and Hulu (no ads) plans now provide a free trial period of one month. In order to avoid any potential disruptions, you should probably sign up for the no-ads plan even if you just intend to use Hulu for a month. You'll be asked for a credit card, but no payment will be taken out of your account until the end of the free trial period. However, just as there is no free trial for Disney Plus, there is also no free trial for Hulu + Live TV.
