Hulu is streamlining its iOS apps, bringing its new design to the core iPhone / iPad app and phasing out the Hulu with Live TV app introduced earlier this year. The apps are merging into one, and both the $40-per-month live TV subscription services and the $8-per-month on-demand option will be available. The latest update for Hulu with Live TV says: “Heads up! We are saying goodbye to our Hulu with Live TV app so you can have all your TV in one place.”
When opened, the Hulu with Live TV app now has a splash screen that sends you to the main Hulu app. Meanwhile, the Hulu app’s App Store page now has the new sea foam green design, shown above. The new interface has gotten praise in past months for looking pretty, but has been criticized for being confusing to use. Hulu has been updating it regularly to address complaints, but some users remain unhappy with the overhaul. Hulu’s Android app already offers both the refreshed design and live TV.
