Cutting the cord to cable is the easiest it’s ever been. There are seemingly unlimited types of streaming services with endless amounts of content to choose from. Hulu’s subscription services are one of the longest-standing and front-running streaming sites. They have had nearly a decade of gathering top shows and movies while diving into the original content market to keep up with Netflix.


You may have had Hulu for a while but still feel you’re not getting your money’s worth out of it. Well, Cable Alternatives compiled this guide on how to “hack” your Hulu subscription to reach its fullest potential!

Download Shows for On-The-Go Access

Are you taking a trip out of town but want to take your favorite shows and movies with you? Hulu allows you to download content to your device of choice! You can download up to 25 different episodes. If you’re worried about dealing with storage management on your device, there is no need! Hulu deletes content from your downloaded playlist after 30 days.

Bundle Up

When you first set up your smart TV or install your first media streaming device, chances are you either got Netflix, Hulu, or both. Now there are tons of options to choose from like Disney+, Paramount+, HBO Max, and the list goes on. Some streaming services have different content you really want to watch, but paying for all those subscriptions will cost you a lot of money, and you cut the cord to cable for that reason!


If you want to keep Hulu but still branch out to other sites, Disney+ offers a bundle. Get Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ for $14.99 per month. In total, you save six bucks a month compared to paying for all three separately.

Refine Your Suggested Playlist

Sometimes, you’ve found the suggestion section helpful in finding new stuff to watch. Other times, it’s a nightmare. Sometimes you might watch a show for nostalgia and end up getting dozens of suggestions for that similar type, which is not always ideal if you want to branch out.


Go to “Watch History” and remove some shows you feel are messing with your algorithm to get suggested new content tailored to your tastes.
