    Hulu announced today a new Hulu Plus experience on Samsung Smart TVs and select Blu-ray players, Roku set-top boxes, and coming soon to the Wii console. The team of engineers at Hulu’s Seattle office has been hard at work enhancing and refining the user experience on these devices, to create a new Hulu Plus experience.

    Users can now enjoy their favorite shows and summer entertainment, including Hulu original and exclusive shows, through the new Hulu Plus experience on their favorite living room devices. Updates to the experience include:

    [*]Artwork. Larger and more vivid artwork, easier navigation.
    Trays. Tray-style format allowing you to scroll through recommendations, popular shows and movies, top 100 clips, movie trailers and a new “Shows You Watch” feature that lets you jump straight to the latest episodes of the shows you regularly watch.
    Search. Updated search experience providing a simpler way to find content with results that appear directly beneath the search.
    Controls. Playback is simplified with clean and intuitive controls: press up or down to display the playback menu, or left or right to fast-forward or rewind.
    Hulu Kids. Brings Hulu Kids section to the living room, letting your family enjoy commercial-free children’s shows from your couch.
    Easy Access. Simple to sign up for Hulu Plus directly from within the app.
