To watch Hulu on your Echo Show, you need first to enable it as a skill in the Alexa app on your smartphone. In simple terms, Alexa Skills are like apps for Alexa. And if its app is linked to your Echo Show, you can easily install Hulu.
There are actually two ways how to do this: using a voice command or in-app settings. In the first case, you can say, “Alexa, enable Hulu,” and she’ll do it automatically.
If you want to take this process on yourself, open Alexa on your smartphone, go to Settings, scroll down, and select TV & Video. From there, just select Hulu from the list of skills and enable it. Afterward, you’ll be able to control Hulu with voice commands.
For a more detailed guide, check it out below.
