The folks over at Hulu are extremely passionate about delivering great experiences whenever one views TV, and this has driven them to roll out the very first release of the remote control experience for Hulu Plus. It signals a brand new function that would enable one to make use of a smartphone or tablet in order to control the Hulu Plus experience right there and then in a living room, on the mobile device.
Going one step further after introducing Chromecast support for Hulu Plus in 2013, remote control functionality for Hulu Plus would be able to deliver a similar awesome experience directly to your living room via the Hulu Plus app on your Xbox One, PS3 or PS4 consoles. Using this function is pretty much a no-brainer – all that you need to do is to launch the Hulu Plus app on your iOS or Android mobile device, and let your gaming console system be detected straight from the app itself. Upon detection, you can see a “cast” button appear on your smartphone or tablet, letting you pair it with your living room device after that.
As for its practical application, you will not only be able to watch whatever is on the TV at the moment on your smartphone or tablet with a single button press, making it handy for you not to miss a single moment of the show even as you leave the living room to head towards the kitchen so that you can fix a sandwich to get that appetite satiated, now how about that?
