What is Hulu? It’s a platform that is widely considered to be the best video streaming app available in the US. It provides a diverse range of video content options, including movies, TV shows, and Live TV. See our Firestick channels guide to see all you can install.

Hulu also lets you view music events and live sports events from all around the world. It is owned by 21st Century Fox, Comcast, AT&T, and Disney and offers content sourced from all these providers.
