From PC Mag: Holiday movie nights just got a lot more fun with the official launch of Hulu Watch Party. Following a successful trial in May, the video-on-demand platform this week announced access for all Hulu and Hulu (No Ads) subscribers.
"With many families practicing social distancing this year, it's more important than ever to find new ways to connect with friends and family this holiday season," the company wrote in a blog post. "Hulu is here to help by offering our viewers the opportunity to enjoy a shared entertainment experience with their loved ones from afar."
Get into the festive spirit with new Hulu Original film Happiest Season, stream holiday-themed episodes of The Golden Girls, This is Us, and Family Guy, or get cozy with secular favorites like Pen15 and The Bachelorette—two of the most popular Watch Party titles during testing.
Netflix started the virtual screening trend with Netflix Party (now known as Teleparty), a Chrome extension that eases the pain of watching content while chatting with friends. Hulu jumped on the bandwagon in May when it began testing a feature for subscribers to connect via film and TV shows.
