There is nothing better than accessing Hulu’s entire catalog on the device you primarily watch your favorite content on. It is not just having Hulu that quenches the thirst of watching entertainment for many people, but there are other apps as well, such as HBO.
A move taken by Hulu a few days ago has taken many people by surprise. Recently, Hulu started offering its subscribers with an option to subscribe to HBO through Hulu account or to link their HBO subscription to their Hulu account. Out of all the ways, this is also one of the most interesting ways to make binge-watching slightly more convenient.
Now, you will be thinking as to how this feat has been accomplished, then let keep reading the post as you will get all the answers to your questions by the end of this post.
Method 1: New HBO Subscribers
If you are one of those people who has not subscribed to HBO ever, then there is no need to feel embarrassed because you can subscribe to HBO via Hulu as the latter allows to subscribe to HBO directly from your Hulu account. I believe that going for such a kind of subscription because you are getting one month free, plus there are many things to enjoy in HBO.
In order to get HBO on Hulu, you need to perform the following steps:
- Log into your Hulu account using the right username and password.
- There is an option named ‘your subscriptions’ under which, you will have to tap ‘manage’, which you can find next to the option named ‘add-ons’.
- Tap ‘manage add-ons’ button or you can scroll down to ‘premium add-ons’.
- Find ‘HBO’ followed by tapping ‘add this’.
You need to confirm the payment, and once you do that, HBO is going to be hooked up to your Hulu account. Now, it is possible for you to watch anything from Hulu Live app and at the same time, from HBO Now app too.
But, you will have to register your Hulu account with HBO in order to watch anything on HBO Now app. For that, you need to perform below mentioned steps:
- Go to ‘HBO registration page’.
- Select Hulu as your provider followed by entering Hulu account’s username and password (only if prompted).
- Complete the registration process, and once you do so, you will be able to use the same credentials to watch HBO in HBO Now app.
Method 2: Current HBO Now Subscribers
In case, you are a subscriber to HBO Now, then the process of hooking up to Hulu will be a bit tricky.
You will see that both, Hulu and HBO are going to confirm that you have not the permissions to link an existing HBO Now subscription to your Hulu account when it is hooked up with another provider. Both, Hulu and HBO have made it clear that in order to get HBO on Hulu activate, you will have to cancel the subscription to your running HBO Now account followed by subscribing to Hulu again.
You will have to find the cancellation instructions that are provided by the provider and follow those to terminate the subscription. After canceling the subscription, you need to wait until your billing cycle is completed for subscribing to HBO Now using a new provider, i.e., Hulu. Now, you will have to follow the instructions that are explained in the method 1.
