Notes

These are unofficial Hulu API endpoints useful for scraping public data such as movie & TV show titles available on their catalog. These endpoints are made available for unofficial use and experimentation, such as for security research, use at your own risk!

Authentication

You’ll need to log in to get a user_token (using your Hulu email and password), and then pass this user_token to the catalog endpoint to fetch the Hulu data.

Rate Limiting

If you want to poll the Hulu endpoints, we don’t suggest exceeding one request per second.
