How to Watch Hulu on the Wii


Unlike the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which feature a large amount of media beside video games, the Nintendo Wii focuses mostly on games. However, just like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, your Wii can access on-demand streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. Because your Wii doesn't come with Hulu installed, you must download it from the Wii Shop.

  • Select "Wii Shop," located on the Wii's main menu, followed by "Start."

  • Select "Start Shopping," followed by "Wii Channels."

  • Select "Hulu Plus," then "Download."

  • Choose the location for saving Hulu Plus -- you can select either the Wii System Memory or an SD card.

  • Select "OK," followed by "Yes." Your download begins automatically, and a Hulu Plus icon appears on the Wii's main menu.

  • Select "Hulu Plus" from the Wii's main menu.

  • Enter your Hulu Plus name and password, then select "Login."

  • Select a movie or television show from the available categories to begin watching it.

Tips & Warnings

  • You must be a Hulu Plus member to watch Hulu on the Wii.
  • Test out first for free to see if you are satisfied with the quality of the playback. I had some trouble with the playback stuttering and the video was not always in sync with the voices. My kids didn't mind it when they were watching Flipper. However, I would not be able to tolerate it through an entire movie. You might have a better experience if you are using a newer computer. Mine is 6 years old.
