To highlight, Hulu application was already available on Windows 10 PC and had an application for Windows 8.1 which was working fine for Windows 10 PC and Tablets and similar for Windows Phone versions. But working on the universal code program, Hulu release's is a single app that will work across Windows10 smartphones, tablets, and PCs.

You can scroll down to the content which you wish to watch through navigation within the application or you can also ask Cortana to help you find the content. With just few Easy Commands, Cortana will find you the desired content. For example, Give a deep press to Search Button and say:

“Hulu watch Family Guy”
“Hulu watch the latest episode of Family Guy”
“Hulu find Family Guy”
“Hulu search for Family Guy”
“Hulu add Family Guy to Favorite”
“Hulu add Family Guy to Queue”
“Hulu go to Movies”
The best part about this application is that it recognized the content you watch last and on choosing the same content, it start from where you left. That's really an excellent software exercise.  One sad part of the application is that this app is only available for US and Japan citizen, unlike the Netflix which just entered India.
