Hulu Plus activation codes are generally provided by the TV-connected device. The Hulu Plus app displays the code, which can be entered at the website after logging in with an email address and password.
Users can also log into the service from within the app itself by providing the email address and password using the on-screen keyboard. Some mobile devices and Apple TV boxes do not provide an activation code. Users with these types of devices must log into the service directly through the app. Once the app is activated on Hulu's servers, users can enjoy a variety of streaming entertainment options.
