Hulu's Watch Party Feature Rolling Out to All Users

Hulu in May began testing a new Watch Party feature that's designed to allow up to eight people to watch TV shows and movies together through the Hulu website, chatting with one another while the content is playing.

The feature was limited to some Hulu users, but Hulu today announced that Watch Party is now available for all on-demand Hulu subscribers.

Today, we're officially launching Hulu Watch Party for Hulu and Hulu (No Ads) subscribers on Hulu.com. Viewers can now safely connect with their friends and family from the comfort of their homes to watch thousands of titles from Hulu's on-demand streaming library.

Creating a Watch Party can be done by choosing the "Watch Party" option on a title's detail page, which provides a link that viewers can share with up to seven other Hulu subscribers. Once everyone has joined, the host can start the show.

Participants need to be logged into Hulu and watchers must have a Hulu subscription. It's also limited to those who are 18 years of age and older. All participants who use Watch Party can react in real time through the chat function in addition to controlling their own playback.

This is a no brainer that should have been available on every service like 5 years ago.

They should try making “Live!” watch party’s like what we see in streaming, just applied for movies and shows. Kinda like a e-movie theater.

It seems Hulu has limited this feature to 8 people to your friends circle.

Definitely not for me.

I want to focus on the show/movie and not be interrupted by a chat session.

This would be about as annoying as people talking during a movie at the theater while you're trying to focus on and enjoy the movie.

OR, you could occasionally staple your hand while watching a show, because that would be about the same level of annoying.
