Hulu Plus is now available on Nintendo 3DS devices. Hulu says it worked with Nintendo to develop an app that fits the user experience on the portable, dual-screen 3DS devices. To that end, the Hulu Plus app for the device allows users to watch a show on one screen, while controlling playback and/or browsing the app with the bottom touch-screen. The bottom screen also features a centralized “menu” button, which will allow users to quickly jump to any of Hulu’s curated sections (TV, movies, kids, etc.).
Hulu Plus on the Nintendo 3DS also enables subscribers to pick up a show or video from where they left off on another Hulu Plus-supported device, such as the Nintendo Wii.
And finally, with it being an app for a device that a lot of kids use, the Hulu Plus app on the 3DS also has a “Kids Lock” feature, which restricts access to other sections of the app.
