2. See Which Episodes You’ve Watched

The Continue Watching list shows recently watched content, but it doesn’t track individual episodes. Here’s how to see which episodes you’ve watched within a show using the “My Stuff” feature on Hulu:

  1. Locate the show you want to track and tap the three dots next to the show’s title or image.
  2. Select “+ My Stuff” (mobile app) or “+ Add to My Stuff” (web player). This adds the show to your My Stuff list.

  1. By adding the show to My Stuff, you’ll gain access to a more detailed view. Go to the My Stuff hub, and you can easily see how many episodes you have left to watch in each saved show.

3. Request Your Full Watch History

While Hulu doesn’t offer a readily accessible watch history like some streaming services, you can request a full report directly from your account. This report will include all the shows and movies you’ve ever watched on your account, along with additional information like your billing history and watch timestamps.

Here’s how to request your full watch history report:

  1. Log in to your Hulu account page (hulu.com/account).
  2. Scroll down to the “Privacy and Settings” section and click on “Your US State Privacy Rights“.
  3. Click the REQUEST REPORT button.
  4. Wait for an email from Hulu with further instructions to submit your request.

Important Note: Processing a watch history report might take some time. Be sure to follow the instructions provided in the email from Hulu to complete the request.

4. Delete a Title from Your Hulu Watch History

Want to remove a show or movie from your Hulu watch history? Here’s a quick guide for both desktop and mobile app users:

On Desktop

  1. Sign in to your Hulu account at Hulu.com and locate the “Continue Watching” section.
  2. Find the title you want to remove and click the menu icon (three dots) under it.

6. Download Your Watch History Titles as MP4

Hulu’s “Continue Watching” list is a convenient way to pick up where you left off on movies and shows. Accessible from any device, it keeps track of your recently watched content. However, for a complete watch history beyond recently watched shows, Hulu currently doesn’t offer a readily available option. You can request a full report, but it might take some time to process.

Conclusion

To access your Hulu watch history, you can use Hulu’s “Continue Watching” and “My Stuff” features. Although you can request a full watching list from Hulu, this process is time-consuming and complex.
