In an attempt to provide you with a more personal TV experience, Hulu has announced that subscribers can now create multiple profiles on a single account. Up to six specific profiles in fact.
It is limited to Hulu.com right now, but the online streaming service has confirmed that multiple profiles will be rolled out to its apps in a few weeks as well.
Hulu is really focusing on personalization with multiple profiles. Just about everything, from the masthead to the homepage, Watchlist, and recommendations will be personalized for each profile. Every individual profile will have its own name, viewing history, and personal information. It only makes sense. You can already do this on your PS4 for example. It helps keep everything how you want it and other users have their profile how they like.
To create a new profile, the user can select the types of movies and shows they’re interested in and those that they wouldn’t like to see. This will help Hulu serve personalized recommendations for each individual profile. Chances are that grandma does not want to see an action title after all.
A new Kids profile type has also been added to make sure that children can view content in the Kids Hub freely. Your kids will not run into mature content on the service. The profiles can be managed from the Hulu app or online at Hulu.com/Account/Profiles.
