Hulu has been talking about adding the ability to download movies and TV shows for offline viewing for a while now, but in a recent interview with AdWeek, Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins is gave a rough timetable on when to expect the feature, saying that “It's something that we're going be doing in a few months. We're working hard on the technology around that and getting the rights squared away.”

Netflix — one of Hulu’s biggest competitors when it comes to streaming video — notably added the ability to watch content offline back in November of last year, along with Amazon Video and Vudu, which also offer the feature. In Netflix’s case, not all of the company’s streaming catalog is available for download, something that will likely be the case with Hulu as well, based on Hopkins’ statement.
