Hulu Plus has released an updated user interface for 2012-2013 Samsung Smart TVs, select Blu-Ray players, and Roku set-top boxes, with added support for the Nintendo Wii to arrive later.
The software update includes a simplified navigation with larger images and a scrolling tray-style format. Users will be able to access their most watched shows with the new “Shows You Watch” feature; the search function has also been improved. Updated playback controls allow for easier access to the fast-forward, rewind, and menu displays. Hulu Kids is included in the update, so users will be able to access children’s content directly from the app on a compatible streaming device.
Those with a compatible Samsung Smart TV, Blu-Ray player, or Roku will receive the update today; no word yet as to when exactly Nintendo Wii users will get the update.
