Host a Hulu Watch Party with your friends and family.

Hulu Watch Party is one of the best things to chill with your family or friends. It was launched in the year 2020 and it became a hit due to the pandemic situation. Most of us still do not prefer joining the crowd to enjoy movies in theatres. So, the watch party becomes the choice, where you can enjoy movies or shows with your group from different locations.

What Is Hulu Watch Party?

Hulu Watch Party comes with a feature to synchronize video playback for all the people participating in it. A party can have up to eight participants maximum. Hulu is the first streaming service to offer this partying option from its own site. All the participants can stream one particular show or movie together with the added chat option. It allows the participants to chat about the video being played.
