How To Manage Your Hulu Watch History?

One of the digital era’s best things has to be the inception of Over The Top (OTT) platforms. That means say goodbye to surfing through those few limited channels, only to end up watching a movie you’ve watched almost every Sunday. And for the past few years, OTT platforms have gained tremendous popularity and subscribers only because it lets the viewers CHOOSE what they want to watch. It’s flexible, customizable, and convenient. 

With more than 38 million users, Hulu is one of the streaming services for your binge-watching saga. Hulu is an American OTT media service owned by Disney, with 40+ acclaimed series and various shows, movies, sports, and more. 

What’s even better is that Hulu lets you customize and manage your watch history. 

You may ask, Why do I even need to manage my watch history anyway? 

To put it simply – make your suggestions and recommendations more accurate. What you’ve watched previously gives a hint to what you might like to watch in the future. Another reason could be that you may not want to disclose what you’ve watched or are watching if you share your account with others. Whatever the reason, it’s always good to have the power to customize your watch history. 

Well, here’s how you can do that.
