Hulu for iOS and iPadOS provides offline download support to suit Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. The feature rolls out to Hulu subscribers today, but there are a number of significant caveats.
Hulu states in a press release that support for offline downloading is only available for ad-free Hulu plan subscribers. It means that ad-supported level users can not access offline shows and movies.
In fact, once a movie is downloaded, you will have 30 days to watch it before it expires. You have two days to finish it before it expires after you start watching it, but as long as it is still available on Hulu, you can renew the download:
Not everything on Hulu, including Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, is available for offline downloads. You will see a download icon on the details page if something can be downloaded.
Hulu for iPhone and iPad can be downloaded from the App Store free of charge. The ad-free level supporting offline access is worth $11.99 a month. Currently the app is only available on iOS, but Hulu says it will soon be available to Android users.
