How To Quickly Find Your Full Hulu Watch and Viewing History

As a long-time Hulu subscriber myself, I know how useful it can be to have access to your full viewing history. Whether you’re trying to find that show you watched last month but can’t remember the name of, or want to see what episodes of a series you’ve already seen, having a complete watch history is invaluable.

After testing and researching multiple methods, I’ve found the quickest way to access your full Hulu viewing history is by using a combination of the Hulu site and mobile app. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

View Partial Watch History on Hulu Website

Hulu allows you to view a partial watch history on their website, covering approximately the last 90 days. Here’s how to access it:

  1. Go to and log into your account
  2. Click on your account icon in the top right corner
  3. Select “Viewing Activity” from the dropdown menu

This will display your viewing history for roughly the last 3 months, showing things like:

  • Titles of movies, shows, Hulu originals, etc. you’ve watched
  • The date you watched them
  • The device you watched them on
  • How many minutes you watched for

While this covers a decent period, you may want a longer or full view history going back years or since you first subscribed. For that, the mobile app provides full access.

Access Full Watch History on Hulu Mobile App

The Hulu mobile app (Android and iOS) provides your full lifetime watching history with no limits on how far back it goes. Here’s how to see it:

  1. Launch the Hulu app on your mobile device
  2. Tap on your account icon in the bottom right
  3. Select “Viewing History”

This will display your full watch history in chronological order from the present day backwards, potentially going back years or to when you first created your Hulu account.

The history contains the same level of detail shown on the website including:

  • Title of the movie, show, etc.
  • Date watched
  • Device watched on
  • Duration

One thing I recommend is tapping the “Date” header at the top of the history list to sort all your viewing history by date. This groups everything you’ve watched together by day making it easier to scan through and find what you’re looking for.

Finding a Specific Show or Movie You’ve Watched

If you’re trying to find a specific movie, show or episode you watched in the past, the best way is to use the search bar:

  1. Tap into the search bar at the top of the viewing history screen
  2. Type in keywords for the title, actor, director etc.
  3. All matching history results will be shown

This allows you to quickly filter down your viewing history and find what you’re looking for.

Why Full Viewing History Matters

Having easy access to your full Hulu viewing history opens up some great benefits including:

  • Resume Watching – Pick up right where you left off in a series
  • Track Watch Progress – See which episodes you’ve watched and which you haven’t
  • Discover Forgotten Favorites – Rediscover shows or movies you want to rewatch
  • Improve Recommendations – Get better suggested shows based on full history

So whether you want to analyze your watching patterns or find forgotten shows to binge, having your complete Hulu viewing history is extremely valuable.

Now you know how to easily access it through the website and mobile app. You can use this guide to unlock your full history anytime you need it.
