Hulu recently updated its experiencehulu.com mini-site, which highlights the company’s existing video on demand service and a forthcoming live television offering. The website refresh has revealed previously unconfirmed features such as cloud DVR, multi-device streaming, user profiles, support for guest accounts, real-time notifications for live events and other perks. The sub-$40 service is expected to launch across iOS, tvOS and other platforms in the coming months.
Apple’s ambitions in terms of securing lucrative deals with Hollywood are reportedly being stymied by internal infighting between three senior executives who have been clashing over who will secure the first major content deal for Apple TV. According to The New York Post, Hollywood insiders are scratching their heads over who exactly is driving the effort.
Eddy Cue, Apple’s Senior Vice President in charge of Internet software, services and major content deals, was joined onstage during last night’s Code Media conference by Propagate CEO Ben Silverman, who took the opportunity to play the first official trailer and share a few previously unknown tidbits regarding “Planet of the Apps”.
For those not in the know, “Planet of the Apps” is the Cupertino company’s Apple Music-exclusive show about apps and their makers. The iPhone maker has finished filming the show three days ago.
