    Starting today, when watching Hulu through the Hulu website, Hulu users will be able to use a new Night Mode feature that turns the interface a dark shade.

    Hulu's new Night Mode options come just ahead of Halloween and are ideal for the streaming service's Halloween-related content, and it's also a feature that matches well with the Dark Mode introduced in Apple's macOS Mojave update.

    According to Hulu, the Night Mode feature can cut down on eye strain and glare when watching content on a desktop machine via a browser.

    Hulu subscribers can enable Night Mode by clicking on their profile icon at the top of the website and selecting the new "Night Mode" option from the dropdown menu.

    Night Mode is rolling out today and while it's not yet available for all users on the desktop, it should be coming soon.

    Night mode seems to be the trend lately. I think it’s only a matter of time before Apple adopts it in iOS, especially with websites and apps doing so.

    It would be nice if websites could check if I had dark mode on or off on my Mac. I currently use dark/night mode on websites like YouTube, Reddit and Twitter but I want them to switch back to light mode when I change that setting in Mojave.

    Yeah. I just implemented dark mode for a webapp I'm writing. I'm surprised/disappointed that there's no way for websites to see if night mode is activated or not.

    In the future, I might try looking up your current location, then calculating if the sun is up there or not to decide on whether it's in dark mode or not. For now, it's just a simple toggle the user has to manually use... maybe sometime soon I'll automatically switch between the two at 6 AM and 6 PM, but that won't work well away from the equator away from the equinox...

    They have a hard enough time just supporting 5.1. Forget about atmos.

    It amazes me how behind the times some for-profit companies can be.
