Hulu Watch Party Enables Up To 8 Viewers To Watch Thousands of Shows and Movies Together This Holiday
With many families practicing social distancing this year, it’s more important than ever to find new ways to connect with friends and family this holiday season. Hulu is here to help by offering our viewers the opportunity to enjoy a shared entertainment experience with their loved ones from afar.
Today, we’re officially launching Hulu Watch Party for Hulu and Hulu (No Ads) subscribers on Hulu.com. Viewers can now safely connect with their friends and family from the comfort of their homes to watch thousands of titles from Hulu’s on-demand streaming library. From the new Hulu Original film The Happiest Season to holiday episodes of beloved shows like The Golden Girls, This is Us, and Family Guy, Hulu is home for the holidays this season. Viewers can also tune into favorites like Pen15 and The Bachelorette, which have been popular titles for Watch Party during our testing period.
After launching Hulu Watch Party through the “Watch Party” icon on each title’s Details page, viewers can share a link with up to seven other Hulu subscribers to join. Viewers must be 18 years of age or older to access the feature. While watching, group members will be able to react in real-time through the chat function and control their own playback.
