How Do I Create an Account on Hulu?

This GetHuman guide walks potential Hulu customers through the signup process, as well as adding, editing, and removing viewing profiles, which are used to customize each viewer's experience. By liking and disliking shows and movies on the platform, Hulu can recommend content based on your personal preferences. The account holder can also create a Kids profile that restricts the viewer to kid-friendly content.

Hulu is an on-demand streaming service that also allows subscribed users to access Live TV and premium channels, such as HBO and Starz. Additionally, Hulu offers commercial-free viewing as well as plans with commercials for a lower price.

How to Create an Account on Hulu

Go to on a computer. When signing up, you receive a free month so you won't get billed until the second month of your service. Start the process by clicking Start Free Trial.

You have four plan options to choose from: Hulu with ads, Hulu without ads, Hulu + Live TV with ads, or Hulu + Live TV without ads. Once you choose your viewing plan, enter your email address, password, and other requested personal information, including your payment method and billing information. Then, click Submit.

Now you can start streaming your favorite shows and movies. You'll also get an email from Hulu confirming your subscription. If you have any issues during the signup process, contact Hulu customer service.

How to Create a Profile on Hulu

Once you've successfully signed up for Hulu, the primary profile is automatically created and you can create up to 6 profiles. Each profile you set up allows each viewer to have their own unique My List, viewing history, and content recommendations.

To add more profiles to your Hulu account, go to on a computer and sign-in. Then, hover over your account image in the upper right-hand corner of the page, then click Manage Profiles from the drop down menu. Under the primary profile, click Add Profile. Once you add the requested information and click Submit, the profile is ready to go. Profiles can be personalized by liking or disliking TV shows and movies to improve recommendations offered by Hulu. You can also edit and remove profiles from the Manage Profile page.

How to Create a Kids' Profile

When you create a new profile, you can have the option of restricting the viewer to only kid-friendly programming. By toggling the switch on, you create a safe space for children to browse and stream their favorite TV shows and movies with the peace of mind of knowing they won't run into more mature content.
