iOS version of Hulu Plus, HBO Go and Max Go now comes with closed captions

On September 15, 2012

When you look at media streaming websites such as Hulu or HBO Go, you can see that its mobile version might not have features as complete as the ones present in the original website. However, that doesn’t mean that the people behind the mobile version are not working hard to make the mobile version on par with the web. As such, 3 media streaming services which are Hulu Plus, HBO GO and Max Go have decided to update their iOS application with a new yet awaited feature which is closed captioning.

Closed captioning or subtitles as most people would want to call it, is a feature that can be considered to be a must to many. In fact, for those that might not be well conversed in the language, closed captions can be very helpful as well. In the case of Hulu Plus, subtitles for languages other than English were made available as well.

Besides closed caption features, all of these services had made some other tweaks to their mobile application. Nevertheless, to first get any of these apps, you will need to subscribe to the service’s premium membership. In the case of HBO Go and Max Go, it might just depend on your cable company as well.
