Streaming services have become the primary method for most consumers to access their television and movie content, and Hulu's new ad-supported downloadable content makes it even easier for people to access the best streaming series and films around. The offering is the first of its kind, giving any user access to offline viewing, even if they aren't subscribers.
Other big players in the streaming video world, like Netflix and Amazon, have already offered offline content, but Hulu's ad-supported downloadable content is the first to be available with a lower-tier subscription to the service. The development is key for Hulu, as it's the only streaming service that offers network television episodes as soon as the day after they air on television.
