More and more, families are using online media subscriptions to watch shows and movies on their own schedules. With Hulu Plus, families can stream videos from the computer, select mobile devices, gaming consoles and more. Hulu Plus recently introduced the new Hulu Kids Video Hub with ad-free children favorites such as Spongebob Squarepants, Dinosaur Train, Barney and iCarly. Hulu Kids is available for anyone with a Hulu Plus account so you do not have to pay any additional fees. Hulu Kids is simply a section of Hulu Plus specifically geared towards children’s shows (and did I mention, commercial free!?).
Using Hulu Kids is very easy. If using an internet browser, just visit www.hulu.com/kids and start browsing the shows available. Video game consoles and mobile devices may require an app to be downloaded first. With 43 shows currently listed, Hulu Kids has a wide variety of shows geared towards children as young as 2 all the way up to 8-10 years of age. In my house, we have a Vizio tv that supports Hulu Plus streaming and although my toddler is just 18 months old, he comes running as soon as he hears the theme songs of his favorite shows. Hulu Kids categorizes the shows into sections based on age as well as theme, making it easy to choose which shows are appropriate for your little one.
A lot of kids find one show or episode that they just absolutely love and could watch over and over and over. At just $7.99, Hulu Plus gives you unlimited access to some of your child’s favorite shows for a low price instead spending $30-40 for a show on DVD/Bluray, only to have your child decide they like a new show a month later.
