Downloading the Hulu app

How to navigate Hulu on your Wii
The Hulu app supports the full functionality of the Wii Remote, so you can use the cursor-based point-and-click mode or use the D-pad (directional pad). Pressing the "A" button will select a menu option and "B" will cancel or move back a step in our menus.
Access to our application can be restricted using the Wii's built in parental controls. When applied, this feature essentially locks our application and allows access only when the selected PIN is entered. Our age restrictions are in place regardless of this feature so if the age on an account is set under 17, then mature content will be restricted.
How to Set Parental Controls:
- In the Wii Menu, click on Wii Options in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen
- Click the Wii Settings option
- On page 2 of the Wii Settings, click Parental Controls
- When prompted with the Change parental controls message, click Yes
- Enter your PIN and click OK
NOTE: If you don't remember your PIN, please refer to this Nintendo support article.
- When you see the confirmation message, click OK
- Click Next until you see this message: Use of the Internet Channel and viewing of certain content which is not subject to game rating
- Click Restrict
- Once you've updated all the Parental Controls settings, click Confirm
- Click Settings Complete
