How to Add Profile on Hulu

Introduction

If you have one Hulu profile shared between multiple people with different tastes, it can be difficult to find your favorites and shows you’re actively watching. Additionally, the recommendations in Hulu will be geared toward the group rather than specifically for you. One solution is to leverage Hulu profiles. Hulu lets you create up to six profiles for a single account. This will allow each user to have their own sub account that tracks their unique interests, favorites and shows watched, and as a result will present more relevant recommendations. In this article, I’ll show you how to add a Hulu profile in the Hulu mobile app on iPhone, iPad and Android, the Hulu.com website, and in the Hulu app on Roku. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in both the YouTube video and images below.
