This week, embedded Hulu videos are back on the Yidio website, making us the first fully licensed independent programming guide to embed the Hulu Player. This partnership will enable Yidio’s 1.5 million registered users and 10 million monthly visitors to stream all Hulu’s free ad-supported video clips and full episodes. Until now, users could only stream full episodes on Hulu.com and a handful of the major portals.
A Hulu partner since 2009, relaunching the embedded player also marks Yidio’s first foray into short form video assets, offering users the opportunity to preview upcoming shows or see bonus content and interviews. Hulu’s ad-supported full episodes are the most popular free viewing option from the television show pages on Yidio.com. With embedded content viewers will save an extra step to quickly access thousands of video assets offered by Hulu.
