While all the glory of streaming mostly goes to Netflix, subscription services like Hulu have just as much to offer. Despite a recently altered structure, Hulu has a catalog that now extends far beyond television and even into the Criterion collection. But how do you get the most out of your $7.99? We’ve got some helpful tips.
1. Find exactly what you’re looking for.
Hulu has an advanced search function if you’re looking for something oddly specific. First, type a general inquiry into the homepage’s search bar. For example, “The Good Wife.” Once you reach the search page, click on “Advanced Video Search” in the top right-hand corner.
Maybe you want to find that episode with Matthew Lillard, specifically (yes, the “Thicky Trick” one)? Type the actor’s name directly in the “People” box. Or maybe you remember the year the episode premiered, but not the season – there’s a search bar for that too.
