About four months after launching its new platform/interface, Hulu said it has followed up with an array of new features that are based on viewer feedback.

Hulu said improved use of TV screen real estate, readability and legibility is among them, showing users more info as they browse for content. This also includes an increased weight of its font and “leading, padding and spacing” for its apps for Apple TV (tvOS), the Xbox One and Xbox 360 and Amazon Fire TV devices.

Hulu has also highlights new episodes of series being watched on the customer’s Lineup view, and has made it available across supported mobile and TV-connected platforms.

Hulu, which launched a beta version of its virtual MVPD service in May, now includes both live and on-demand viewing history on its home menu.
