How to delete a profile on Hulu

One of the great benefits of a Hulu subscription is not having to share in the cinematic or televised preferences of your kin and pals. Hulu allows you to add up to six different users under a single account, which means that everyone gets to pick and save their favorite movies and shows without butting in on the content of others. If the time ever comes to eliminate a profile, however, Hulu makes it fairly simple to get rid of a user.

In this step-by-step guide, we’ll teach you how to delete a Hulu profile using your home computer and/or mobile device. Keep in mind that once a profile is deleted, it cannot be retrieved, so make sure you’re committed to removing your in-laws from your account before ousting them to a lesser streaming service.

The 10 most popular shows on Max right now
The cast of Gangs of London.

For the second week in a row, the Max original animated series, Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake, is on top of the ten most popular shows on Max. And while Harley Quinn and Hard Knocks have fallen out of the top ten, most of this list remains intact from the previous week. As before, the AMC+ shows on loan to Max are outperforming most of the other series on Max. Now that Gangs of New York has earned a place on the list, it has become the fifth AMC+ series to do so. The other four are Killing Eve, Fear the Walking Dead, Interview with the Vampire, and A Discovery of Witches. This makes us wonder what this list will look like at the end of October when all of these shows return to AMC+.

It's also worth noting that this week's No. 2 show, Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty, is still performing well less than a week after its abrupt cancellation. If Winning Time has this kind of sustained popularity then perhaps it was a mistake for HBO to pass on a renewal. We'll see how the show performs next week with no more new episodes. But for today, September 22, these are the 10 most popular shows on Max right now.

The best movies on Amazon Prime Video (September 2023)
Michael Peña as José in a spacesuit walking down a hall in the movie A Million Miles Away.

There are some surprising additions to the best movies on Amazon Prime Video this month. We expected newly arrived Warner Bros. movies like Elvis and The Batman to dominate Prime Video's streaming charts, but the top film of the week is the inspirational Prime Video original A Million Miles Away, and the little-seen drama A Thousand and One has also marched up the charts. That's in addition to last week's sleeper film, Inside, a thriller that stars Willem Dafoe as an art thief who is stuck after a heist gone wrong.

Prime Video adds a number of new and classic titles throughout the month, and it's not always easy to tell where the latest additions are because of Amazon's clunky interface. Thankfully, we've made it our mission to stay on top of Prime Video's lineup with our weekly update of the best movies on Amazon Prime Video.
