How to activate a new device


The easiest way to activate a new device is by downloading the Hulu app and logging in with your email address and password. If you’re using a Smart TV or TV-connected device, you may have the option to activate the device online instead.*

To activate a new device using an activation code:

  1. Launch the Hulu app
  2. Select Log In on the Welcome screen, then choose Activate on a computer. On the next screen, you’ll be presented with an Activation Code
  3. Go to your Account page (log in if prompted) and look for the Watch Hulu on Your Devices section, or head directly to
  4. Enter the unique code that is displayed on your TV screen and within 30 seconds or so you should be logged in

Whenever a new device is activated on your account, you’ll get an email with the following details:

  • What? The kind of device that was activated
  • Where? The location (city, state, country, etc.) where the device was activated
  • When? The date and time the device was activated
