Hulu introduced a Live TV Guide option on the Internet as a test project for the first time last fall and promised an interface redesign in January with the Live TV Guide at CES. Starting this morning, Hulus will introduce the new Guide and its dedicated live destination for Apple TV's fourth and fifth generation, the Xbox One, the Amazon Fire TV and the Nintendo Switch.
On these devices, live TV subscribers can instantly access live TV using the new lightning bolt icon located to the right of the Home icon. Selecting this icon will invite users to play live on their most recently viewed channel.
During live programming, Hulu subscribers can access an expanded manual that contains details of what's going on and what's coming up. Users can customize the look of the manual by sorting by "All Channels" or "Last Channels", which lists the last 10 channels viewed.
The tutorial also allows subscribers to record all current or upcoming programming or launch a program from the beginning if it is available for DVR recording. Hulu has designed the guide so that subscribers can navigate between viewing, browsing, or recording a show for later with a few clicks.
Hulu says the live TV target and the guide will be extended to additional devices in the near future.
