Hulu Plus For iPad Receives Update, Includes Easier Content Discovery

Hulu has made some radical changes to its Hulu Plus app for the iPad today, bringing a visual redesign and features that make discovering new content easier than ever.

Here’s the full changelog of what’s new in Hulu Plus 3.0 for iOS:

  • Minimize a video during playback by tapping the minimize icon or “pinching” the video. The video will continue playing at the bottom of the screen while you use the app to browse, search, or do anything else you can think of.
  • Tap on an image of any episode, show, or season to take a peek at what’s inside using the new discovery panel. Have fun casually exploring old episodes within a season or learning more about a new show with as little effort as possible. (Want to get straight to watching content? Just double-tap any image).
  • Check out collections of editorially curated shows, clips, and movies. We recommend starting with the “Trending Now” collection of the day’s hottest clips – it’s a great way to see what everybody’s talking about right now.
  • Watch clips and short-form content inline, just one tap away.

Hulu Plus is available for download in the iTunes App Store, and runs on iPads and iPad minis that are running on iOS 5.0 or later.
