This App Needs Help
by Appcent on 2021/06/11 21:35
So much is wrong with this app. Connecting to chromecasts and others is a tedious chore, and it does not keep place with where you are when watching a program. This causes double and in extreme cases triple or quadruple the commercials to play when you are trying to watch the program. Extremely dissatisfied.
Terrible
by Fhcjtcjtgfccccc on 2021/06/11 20:43
I downloaded a couple of episodes and they say I require internet to view them, what a joke!

good app BUT WHY U NEED MY LOCATION I WAS JUST TRYING TO WATCH ATTACK ON TITAN WHAT U NEED IT FOR I don’t like apps knowing my location so my question is why u need it
Constantly freezes
by Ali2girl on 2021/06/11 17:50
I am constantly having to close and reopen the app because it freezes. I get the spinning wheel of torture and it doesn’t resume so I close and reopen. Frequently I get “connection error” when I’m streaming on my tv. Getting pretty close to canceling my subscription.
Seriously?
by (JimJr) on 2021/06/11 17:34
Every other update brings back automatic subtitles. I turn them off then start the next episode and again the subtitles automatically come back on. This has been months. Fix. Netflix let’s me set limits as to what rating of shows to allow. This helps me to not waste so much time filtering through junk ma and r rated shows , which means nothing more then highly immoral and excessively violent material. Please program in a filter in Hulu. Filter also to let me filter out the horribly immoral lgbtq content. 90% of the time I load up Hulu I want to go to (my stuff) but for some strange reason it is put far right in the top menu. Please shift that over next to home. Please get rid of the pride heading in the top menu right of home. I do not want that extremely immoral heading in my Hulu menu!!
Why’d you remove South Park
by Troygod on 2021/06/11 14:48
I can’t believe you changed South Park to a live tv subscription only, boo on you
Was a good service.
by Oz Cool on 2021/06/11 14:20
Now between 4 ads in a twenty minute episode and the constant barrage of liberal propaganda. I can’t seem to enjoy an episode of a tv show.
The lgbtqaaip+^2 add campaign?
by Jfhehajah on 2021/06/11 14:18
I get Hulu runs ads to make extra profit but literally every other ad they make you watch in between the show is about a high schooler coming out of the closet or 6’3” dudes in dresses. Could you at least balance it out with regular commercials like for cereal or used cars?
A few good things, but lots of frustration
by deadpool_94 on 2021/06/11 13:50
The app used to be great and almost flawless. For at least 6 months this app is absolutely terrible. On iOS/iPadOS, the app hast to constantly be relaunched as it will either just hang on the hulu splash screen, or the home section with boxes where text eventually loads or not and again has to be relaunched. This app used to be the gold standard of a streaming app and how it should be but its just clunky. I would say its a device issue but it acts the same on an iPhone X to an iPhone 12 to an iPad Pro 11”. The next thing that is terrible is the Cast feature. It used to be acceptable, now you can’t even adjust playback or pause without the content you are watching from either starting over or just getting messed up and causing frustration. It’s like Disney took over the controlling interest in Hulu, raised prices every so often and made the app terrible. It’s a shame.
Ads
by vdjdgxgdhdy on 2021/06/11 12:11
Sometimes I have to go back after an ad and they replay the ads it gets annoying and tiring
Bruhhh
by well then the reveiw also sucs on 2021/06/11 06:05
Rlly I gotta pay to just watch stuff. Why do make us payyyyyyy. I don’t even got online money so fric you! >:[
There’s one thing
by Avery 10009977 on 2021/06/11 04:10
I hate that there are adds like every 5-10 minutes it really annoying and I don’t want to pay each month for there to be no adds. I hope you can at least have, like 1 or 2 less adds! Thank you for your time!!
Ads are getting out of hand
by Matiboi92 on 2021/06/11 03:48
I was skeptical about paying so much for a streaming service that still used ads to make more money, and I should have trusted my instinct. I thought I would have a few commercials per episode, at the start, middle and toward the end? I just watched an commercial, a 2 minute intro of the show, another 3 commercials, show for 5 minutes and then another 2 commercials. I haven’t made it half way through the show and I’ve watched 10 minutes worth of ads. I wish I could get my money back since they are making a killing on them.

Money Grabbing
by Rednova117 on 2021/06/10 22:58
I do enjoy Hulu and all the variety and the different titles they have available but at some point the amount of ads are ridiculous. We are already paying to use the platform, you shouldn’t make us sit through ads. But we can get less ads by paying more. It’s just a money grabbing scam. No respect for customers.
Y’ALL ARE OVERREACTING
by AtlasDestroyer on 2021/06/10 20:28
OK SO WHAT IF THERE ARE ADS? DOES YOUTUBE HAVE ADS? YES! DOES EVERYONE STILL LIKE IT? HECK YEAH! So explain to me why you are all acting like 3 year olds and complaining about the ads and the glitches and blah blah blah- WHAT DOES THE WORD ADS MEAN IN THE FIRST PLACE? ADVERTISEMENTS! WHAT DO ADVERTISEMENTS DO? ADVERTISE THEIR PRODUCTS! How the heck do you think you can go find your favorite soap brand in the store without even looking for it huh? IT’S. BECAUSE. OF. ADS. AND GLITCHES. Does Netflix glitch? YES! Does IMDB glitch? YES! Does YouTube glitch? YES! EVERYTHING GLITCHES FOR GODS SAKE. YET I SEE NO-YES I MEAN IT-COMPLAINTS ON ANY OF THE PLATFORMS THAT I LISTED ABOVE. Please stop acting like cranky 3 year olds and respect Hulu for the work they have put in. On a positive note, Hulu is doing great! I love the new update! It’s super cool and I love it! Sorry that I have less to say about the positive stuff, but you all really need to calm down and get a Snickers. - A very happy Hulu user
Add Chanel please

Netflix is better
by 8ells07 on 2021/06/10 18:45
Hulu has some great shows that you can’t find anywhere else, which is great! But why pay money and still have to watch ads. I also don’t like the fact you can’t skip the intro to the show.

Subscription + ads is a no-go
by Asteinagel on 2021/06/10 18:40
Man, you guys still make us watch ads even after charging a subscription fee? That’s crazy. Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime, they’ve figured out how to avoid the ads. Why can’t you guys? I’m glad I cancelled.

Nightmare
by Iskander.X on 2021/06/10 08:03
A nightmare of a steaming service that blackmails base users into paying not to have 5 minutes worth of ads in a 20 min show, do yourself a favor and pay for a cheaper more accessible steaming service.
so many ads expensive
by Rober_man on 2021/06/10 07:47
it didnt used to be this way but now they have uped the price and you have to watch ads
Pointless paying for hulu subscription
by Dissapointed Hulu Customer on 2021/06/10 04:19
We pay for Hulu subscription yet still have the 3 minute adds. During the add, the app glitches and starts the add over again. Most of the time adds end up being 6 minutes long. Hulu also skips some episodes of shows. Skipping episodes and 6 minute long adds is just not worth it. I’ll be canceling my subscription for next month. Might as well just stick with Netflix.
Ads
by ??Sister_Galaxy¿¿ on 2021/06/10 03:04
With the ads like I’m OK having ads but when they’re almost 2 minutes long and you can’t even skip them that’s not what I’m OK with it’s very annoying and it should be less than two minutes. But I like all of the shows on there and that you don’t have to pay for them you just have to pay for the app.

Love this app
Aight one thing.
by 4628482 on 2021/06/09 22:37
I LOVE hulu but this actually made me pretty mad. I watch anime a lot and hulu was the only place i really watched it. I also want to clarify that i have and all access account so i should be able to watch everything (sorry if that is the wrong definition but i can watch any show basically). One day i get on hulu to watch Assassination Classroom and all that other stuff when it tells me that im not old enough? I was so upset. I even tried updating the app and it didn’t work. So um, can i have my shows back?
Ads❌
by jortfi on 2021/06/09 16:03
Their is an ad every 3 minutes
Everyday everytime
by gakwood13f on 2021/06/09 15:50
I believe this is the worst app I have ever experienced. I pay for the service that’s why I keep it but everyday and every time I open the thing it says we are sorry something went wrong. I just wanted to complain. Thanks

Volume on ads
by Business travel1 on 2021/06/09 11:15
Do you Really need to have the volume be extra high on ads vs the show you are watching? Constantly turning it up and down.
Worst app for streaming to TV
by ayshiamo on 2021/06/09 06:15
I’ve used this app for years and it’s always been bad with Chromecast but recently it just took a turn for the worst. I only use it with Chromecast and it’s a NIGHTMARE. Loses connection all the time, controls don’t work, etc. They need to fix it.
New update still the same
by orozcomp on 2021/06/09 05:50
I can’t watch some shows because of the parse error 2. I can’t watch Sons of Anarchy. How can I fix it?
Too many notifications
by juliajustfine on 2021/06/09 02:15
This app is great and all until you realize it constantly has a red notification bubble. I hate apps that do this, so I quickly deleted it. I only have the Hulu subscription now bc it comes with Spotify.
Horrible App
by Hkgvbjjfhjbhhvggvh123123 on 2021/06/09 02:01
This app is so buggy and freezes constantly. Did you get a 5 year old to program this? The streaming buffers every 30 seconds and the ads will play several times in a row because the buffering is so buggy.
Stole my money
by Yuhh🥵✨ on 2021/06/09 01:19
I was re doing my subscription but then i did and it kicked me off the app, so when I got on Hulu again it told me to re do it again and now I have 5$ and I had 14$
i love you with every working bone 🦴 please have my kids

Terrible app
by Ichabad on 2021/06/09 00:49
This app is awful if you are trying to cast to a Chromecast. I can start a show fine, but if O close my phone (lock) and then open the app back up when the show is over, or if I want to pause or change the show it starts the show completely over. It is the most annoying thing I can think of with an app. Why can’t the app remember where I am in the show instead of starting over every single time I open my phone up again? Figure it out Hulu!!! Seriously makes me think about cancelling the subscription and switching to something I can actually use.
ADS
by Chickfilastarbucks on 2021/06/09 00:27
i don’t know what y’all going on with this “Ad” business, but it’s not sliding with me. the fact that we already have to PAY to watch anything on the app and you’re trying to give us ads as well is STUPID. GET IT TOGETHER AND TAKE AWAY ONE OR THE OTHER
Useless basically unless you’re on WiFi
by joromemsmith on 2021/06/08 23:51
I have a 5G phone and even if I’m in areas with 5G this app suffers from buffering it’s like the buffering takes so long at time that I don’t even care to finish the show or movie I’m watching. The experience compared to a app like Netflix is night and day. Netflix works no matter where I’m at or what time of day it is or even if I’m somewhere that has a lot of people Netflix works and the user UI in video is miles better than on here with this app these problems can be fixed. Even HBOMAX and Disney+ are better than this app overall.
Cannot create account please try again later
by GHusernottaken on 2021/06/08 23:11
Unable to crate an account. Tried both prices. (With and without ad). So much for being a Hulu customer...

TOO. MANY. ADS.
by sunnysxmxnthx on 2021/06/08 20:49
oh my. i should not have to pay MORE MONEY than what i’m paying to not see an AD. it’s ridiculous. I switched from cable to hulu for the purpose of no ads and i can watch whatever i want. but at this point i might just switch back. everyone saying “just pay to get them removed” need to send some money over because i can’t stand watching a 20 minutes show that turns into an hour because of how many ads there are.
Great app but ads for paid app
by mods are nice on 2021/06/08 18:41
I really like Hulu, there are a lot of shows that are fun to watch but having to watch “the good doctor” with 5 ads in each one is a bit much like if you are going to have us pay 6 dollars a month and watch so many ads just makes it very annoying.
Inappropriate commercials for children
by BabyFacedAssassin83 on 2021/06/08 18:26
Why are you showing my small children ads for ED medication, HIV meds, birth control ads, etc? In what universe is this appropriate, or even smart use of your clients’ advertising dollars?

I love it just the ads.....
by Vladi UwU on 2021/06/08 16:14
Hulu is amazing it’s just that when ads come in it makes me frustrated like when I am watching “My Hero Academia” it’s my fav show that’s not good even YouTube is free and their ads are 15 secs and lower.
Amazing
by YesTheChosenOne on 2021/06/08 14:25
Simply amazing. Has all the shows I could ever want. One problem however is there is ads everywhere (HULU NO ADS ALSO CONTAINS ADS) this is a big problem that needs to be solved but this is still great for streaming tv.

DON’T PAY FOR THIS
by thatdude2008 on 2021/06/08 06:26
Hands down this is the worst app I have ever used! Really good content, but the issues I get are that the sound doesn’t match what is being said and I have to restart. Randomly after starting a show, the screen just goes black and does not play. First I thought it was my TV or internet connection, it it ONLY happens on Hulu. I have tried to give this platform a chance multiples times or an extended period of time with the same results.
Not able to login to account and volume of commercials is TOO LOUD!!!
by Meel042 on 2021/06/08 05:31
I’ve tried to log in to my account on this app for over two years!! it always says that there’s something is wrong with my wifi. I tried using my school wifi, my mobile data, and 2 other wifi options to log in and it still DOES NOT WORK!!!! It is the most frustrating things… i even tried to login in through the browser and it still does not work. Since i am not able to watch on my phone, i watch hulu on my tv. This would be fine if the volume of the shows/ movies and the volume of the commercials were equal. But the volume of the commercials is two or three times louder than the shows/ movies. It is horrible and has made my family and i resort to watch shows on other applications. It is so annoying that i am considering canceling my hulu subscription.
Does not play on firestick
by lionessden23 on 2021/06/08 04:45
On Firestick the initial ads do not play leaving you unable to watch the show. Many glitches for 2021 technology.
Meh

Bad for casting
by Jordan Rood on 2021/06/08 02:50
I have about 4 or 5 streaming apps on my phone. All of them cast to my tv just fine but hulu consistently has trouble. Great content, not so great app
Is Hulu sussssssss
by babsindbagsvmabdhsksmv on 2021/06/08 02:23
Basically it will not let me whatch anything on a tv or anything that is not mobile, and says you can only whatch it one your mobile device. But on it you have to turn location services on to even get on the app, I mean why do you need location services on for that that’s weird and it happened all the sudden, also none of the others things worked like logging out and getting back in. But I don’t know if it’s just me or what. Over all it’s pretty good other than glitches and ads when I’m on stuff that isn’t live but other episodes are.

Too many adds, even with “add free”
by nunniebelle on 2021/06/08 00:34
Honestly I love Hulu. I pay a lot of money per month for add free and it’s not add free, movies tv shows etc. it’s really disappointing knowing that if I downgrade, there’ll be more adds.
Lots of Glitches
by ~DragonQueen~ on 2021/06/08 00:32
Hulu has a great selection but unfortunately I’ve had a lot of issues with this app. - Sometimes it will lose track of my progress with a show and set me back a bunch of episodes whenever I leave full screen - Shows will fail to load, then the app crashes - The worst one - any time I try to play downloaded content, it completely crashes the app and I cannot get it to work I hope these glitches get fixed soon, cause I wanna keep using the app!
App: 5 stars. The ads diminish the utility
by GardenKeeper on 2021/06/07 23:22
Hulu was the third tier of the Disney+, ESPN+ package that I purchased. It has some interesting offerings that one can’t get elsewhere. But the ads are overpowering and significantly diminish the viewing experience.
False commercial

Improvements
by freshguy202169 on 2021/06/07 22:47
It lots of titles to watch but the app itself needs improvement, skipping a episodes in series is not user friendly, or controlling the app while connected to a smart tv is difficult, if improvements are made this could be better!!
Ads
by tiktok1234134 on 2021/06/07 22:46
So many ads !
Hulu is great but this app is not.
by Scatter man1 on 2021/06/07 19:13
This app does not work well. I use it through chromecast and it always disconnects. If you are watching a show and need to go back into the app to rewind or pause it will have disconnected requiring you to reconnect and possibly starting the show over.
Hulu App
by Rack_City_Brax on 2021/06/07 15:36
My favorite part of this app is when it decides to randomly not work whether it be over WiFi or cellular data. It starts to play the show or movie then just shuts down.
Problems
by Guest 967 on 2021/06/07 15:01
The content is good. The only thing bothering me is the timing on a series. It is a pain then the app doesn’t pick up where I left off. It has happened to many times.
Repeat Ads
by wolfgang aristotle on 2021/06/07 09:56
Hulu will have you watching the same ad 3 times before it ever goes back to your show. It’ll cut off a character mid-sentence to show ads, then show ads during the ad break the show set up, then it proceeds to reload the same ads for a third time before the show starts again. Most of the seasons from tv shows they have are missing, are 90% ads, and it’s basically turning into cable where you record episodes to watch them instead of a streaming service. Hulu could’ve been as great as netflix but sold out too far and basically put netflix out of business just to trip over itself and its gonna crash soon if they companies only focus is money from the companies instead of the people watching their “streaming service”. Another testament to their hunger for money rather than making a good streaming service is at every turn hulu begs you for money from the ads to the “add-on” feature

Recent Update Requires Location - On An iPad
by Comfortably Dumbb on 2021/06/07 01:40
A recent update now requires location be enabled on both Android and iOS. Setting aside my displeasure with burning through battery using location services ostensibly so Hulu can farm unnecessary data, it makes the app unusable on devices that don’t have a GPS - like my iPad.

Commercials are insane.
by MarsZKronic on 2021/06/06 17:31
Okay I understand they have to make money. But I have live tv and I will pause my show, then while it’s paused the program automatically starts a 5 minute commercial. Ten plays the show. So when I have to go back to watch what I missed, it then plays another 5 minute break. Unbelievable! This is just overkill you guys, make your money but not at excessive inconvenience to your customers.

So I love Hulu and how I’m able to watch anime but usually when I go to watch it it says that there’s an issue and it won’t play. Then I can’t ever watch it and I don’t know what to do or how to fix it and it’s really annoying.
Commercials REALLY LOUD
by cheesyamburger on 2021/06/06 13:57
I don’t even want to use Hulu anymore because a few days ago the settings on it must have changed and now Every commercial breaks SCREAMS AT YOU because the volume is way louder on the commercials than during the show. I’ve noticed this for Bobs Burgers and American Dad so far.... I’m literally using Netflix until this problem is fixed cause I can’t deal with adjusting the volume every 5 minutes.
Tooo many ads
by Kharvey18 on 2021/06/06 13:26
Ads every 10 mins take a hour just to watch a 30 min show
Out of control ads
by Erd180 on 2021/06/06 13:13
I used to love this app but the commercials have gotten out of control. I’ve been paying for “ad free” service for years. Instead of ad free what I’ve noticed is that the ads keep increasing as well as the price. Previously ads were maybe 60 seconds now it is 2:30 with about 4-5 commercial breaks for a 40 minute show. It is to the point where I’m going to look into other streaming services if this does not improve.
Hulu Live Streaming issues
by Mr Streamer on 2021/06/06 11:42
Why does the dialog start without selecting a show and can’t be paused since last update? Why does the Apple TV have to be restarted to stop the dialog? Never fails, every time Hulu pushes an update another problem is created! Must be incompetent coders working for Hulu. Fix your Hulu Live streaming problems on Apple TV!
Glitchy and too many ads
by TechieFoodie101 on 2021/06/06 05:33
The commercials are ridiculous. When you return to watch a show it starts at the beginning and TWO sets of ads. One before it starts and another after the opening credits run. Then again when guy fast forward to the spot you left off. Plus, they run the same ads OVER AND OVER. This makes me want to avoid any and all products advertised!
Service, what Service?
by im4him4ever on 2021/06/06 05:04
I do not understand why I pay $75.00 per month for Hulu live and I am blocked from watching live tv on my phone while I’m on vacation. It states I must use the app when I’m at home. What’s the point? I pay for a service that you do not provide. And while I’m at it I pay extra for no ads and guess what ads, ads, and more ads. What am I paying for? This could be a great service but it’s not. I pretty much watch the exact same 4 shows over and over and that seems simple enough to provide.
5.1 is finally here!
by MClo83 on 2021/06/06 03:50
It’s about time…thanks Hulu!
Worst TV App
by Whos a Lawyer on 2021/06/06 03:31
I’ll put it this way they give it to me for free and still me nor anyone I know uses it everytime I give it a chance I’m thrown back into 1998 we came so far only for Hulu and YouTube to simply betray the consumer and sell out
Good Potential
by gabriellenor19 on 2021/06/06 02:46
Hulu has great potential but constantly fails to resume at the last stopping point across all devices: phones, computer, fire stick & roku. Constant connection errors no matter where or how strong the internet is, the only thing I can think of is a glitch on Hulu’s end. Ad breaks also sometimes start in the middle of a character’s sentence or at another awkward time & the show/movie sometimes resumes at a different point after the advert. I love the Hulu original TV Shows & they have a different movie selection compared to other streaming services like Netflix.
Airplay crashes
by Human condition is my life on 2021/06/06 01:48
Whenever it connects to my tv it plays briefly then crashes.
Too many adds
by cups1234 on 2021/06/06 01:21
Pay for no ads and yet still 3 add breaks in a 20 min show
1/10
by wgesw on 2021/06/06 01:15
app only opens to home screen with Hulu but never opens to shows or movies
😰😰😰😓😓😨😨😨😭😭

Ok I love this app but……….why just why CAN I NOT WATCH MY HERK ACADEMIA WITHOUT PAYING AAAAAA
Horrible Streaming
by toxt2013 on 2021/06/05 22:58
I have this app and my WIFI connected at 5G, you would think this would be a perfect experience but all too often there is buffering, loss of stream and just an absolute horrible viewing experience. I had the ATT app and NEVER had such issues. But I know these reviews fall on deaf ears, Hulu doesn’t care because they get their money and screw the viewer. I think I’m going back to ATT.
I enjoy the content BUTTTTT
by Burgermizer on 2021/06/05 21:48
The app does not sync across my devices like it says so if I watch on my phone then on another device I have to hunt for it. It also does not have the option to reset my shows on mobile so it only plays the last 5 min of rewatched shows.... and finally the app crashes every time I open it. I have the latest updates. I have reached out to CS multiple times with no response... this is a five star worthy app on non mobile devices for me just the mobile version gives me issues.
Ads
by 962016 on 2021/06/05 21:40
The commercials are EXTREMELY loud, plain ridiculous!!!
To everyone saying there are to many adds
by do it read this and do it on 2021/05/12 02:55
BRO if you don’t like the adds SO MUCH to the point where you HAVE To right a review just pay for less adds if your so angry about it it’s not gonna change so just leave it alone also it’s only 3 add breaks it’s not a big deal just chill it can get annoying some times so just pay more if you hate it that much. I like the app a lot though I can binge Naruto on the go with my phone or I can chill on a couch at my house honestly this is one of the best apps to watch t.v on they won’t have every tv show in the world ofc but it has a wide selection of movies and shows it’s evenly balanced between the two and it’s just an amazing app in general it has shows Netflix doesn’t so over all its amazing an you should get it. just keep in mind how much effort and work it took to make this app don’t come here all angry when they are trying their best to make an app that YOU got at least they aren’t charging to download it also if you get a subscription even though you SAY it has bugs why get the subscription at all I don’t understand why you do that. Also stop with saying there’s bugs there’s not not for me anyway so it is most likely your wifi or you device because mine is fine so don’t be so angry at the developers they worked really hard to create this

Fix the glitches
by Dougie b23 on 2021/05/27 12:01
For one, if I watch the commercial, and zoned out and missed what it said when it came back, I shouldn’t hit go back and have to watch another minute and a half of commercials, I have add, something boring is on, doesn’t mean I’m paying attention when my show comes back, Tubi is completely free and if I watch the commercials, (and it can be 3 commercials back) I can rewind an hour and I don’t have to watch the adds I did before, but seriously the GLITCH where if I hit the wrong show, go back to menu, it keeps playing the audio of the other show and then I have to restart my AppleTV again to get it to stop, and I seen someone complain about this a year ago on here, just tested it a few minutes ago, I had it up to the audio of 5 shows while another was playing, (played diff shows, some were still in commercials so I could tell the difference), your glitch is that bad a year later, and for the people that are saying we should upgrade for no commercials, first I said Tubi is free and their commercial and playback feature is better and the main thing atm is a lot of us can’t upgrade since we get it with the Disney+ and/or the ESPN bundle, (but why should we have to pay more for it to improve?) please fix your app
Poor Convenience?
by Gingeraide on 2021/01/07 19:22
I binge a lot of the shows I watch, and I pay to have no commercials, and yet there’s so many annoying bugs that really make it hard to conveniently use this app, the most prevalent one being that there used to be a widget that would allow you to watch your show as you scrolled/used other apps in your phone, and then suddenly it just disappeared? Without an update, just stopped being able to do that. Really irritating, yet I find that if I have my phone connected to my aux in my car and I pull up the gps while leaving the show running, the audio will continue to play soooo??? Another HORRIBLY ANNOYING thing is when the next episode automatically plays, it will just REPLAY THE SAME EPISODE I WAS JUST WATCHING. And more than half the time, if you press ‘next episode’, it will replay the same episode again anyways. Sometimes the next episode button isn’t there, and I have to restart the app, then go into the series details, scroll to the episode I was on and click the next one manually. This isn’t a rare occurrence, it’s every other episode. Please fix this, I’m going to stop paying so much per month if these simple conveniences aren’t addressed 😞
Make it easier to switch plans!
by wildbellelover on 2019/10/28 00:43
as a new user i of course decided to go with the cheaper plan to “try it out”. i haven’t even gotten thru the first episode of the show i was dying to watch and i’m already so over all of these ads! the option to upgrade isn’t even on the app.. i had to go log in on the web which again requires way more clicks than necessary.. although after reading reviews i guess it’s a good thing it’s not so easy because apparently you have to wait until your current subscription is cancelled which completes a month later!??? OMG! you’d think you would want to make your new subscribers experience the best.. again you should make it easier to upgrade or start everyone out with the BEST plan first.. and then give them the option to switch once the free trial ends.. just saying.. i don’t plan to cancel right away.. i guess i’ll leave it on during the free trial and use the app if i’m that desperate to watch an episode i’m willing to sit thru the same ads over and over every few minutes while trying to get thru an episode. best believe my subscription will be cancelled as soon as the trial is up! so disappointing! ugh!
It’s great but there’s one thing
by auburn tigers58907829901 on 2021/05/24 21:13
My episodes keep on skipping and the up next thing keeps on coming up too soon. Like if it says it has this certain amount of time left it could be three seconds or 289 seconds and sometimes it ends too soon. It’s quite annoying. Also the ads always pop up, like after the episode ends it plays an ad and then I have to wait for my episode. I home you can fix these bugs on tv and on my phone.😇😇😇😇😇but still highly recommend Edit: also I looked through some other reviews and there was one that said that you could just pay but what if your trying to save your money. Like I don’t want to pay money that I will probably need in the future just to get rid of some ads. They also said that there only 3 ad breaks. There is way more than three and if there is than it takes forever for them to end. So pls just consider some other views and pls fix the problems bc this could be so perfect if you did
Never ending issues
by _tinydancer_ on 2020/04/01 06:48
You would think for app with this many subscribers and this high of a subscription rate (for the live tv) the least they could do is make an app that works. The app has near constant glitches. It often plays the audio of one show while a completely different show plays. It never remembers where you left off in a show so you have to watch the same commercial breaks again. It freezes, it crashes. It has the worst UI. You can’t set shows that you’ve recorded to automatically delete after you’ve watched them so you have to do it manually. Even when you record shows, you can only fast forward through the commercials maybe 25% of the time. One show I record never records the whole episode. Even after I delete it, it stays this way. Then miraculously, after a week, the full episode appears. Seems like this app is perpetually a year behind it’s competitors. I really hope someone reads this and looks into all these perpetual issues, but I’m not holding my breath. Get it together. You owe your paying customers more than this.
Commercials and streaming service
by bakachibichan1 on 2020/11/21 07:41
So, for the commercials I don’t mind watching. However if you want to rewind to watch a scene before the commercials break you have to watch 3 minutes of commercials (1 min when you first pass through, 1 min when you rewind, and another minute when you pass through again). It’s kind of annoying that it does that and doesn’t save that you already watched the ad breaks like other video streaming platforms. In addition, I get a lot of problems with the streaming service. Like the episodes won’t load and it tells me to come back later or refresh. I know it’s not my internet because we just upgraded it to a faster speed and out of all the apps on my phone and TV this is the only one that needs to be refreshed. Lastly, episodes. Episodes on phones can only be watched two at a time. Then you have to go to the series list for the next two episodes, which is inconvenient because of the loading issue mentioned above. I love the shows on this app, but really not worth all the bugs and issues.
Could be way better
by Poshafied! on 2020/03/28 03:19
At first I loved this app then after using it for a awhile I found all the glitches. The time it takes to download a movie and all the buffering makes it difficult to even watch a show or a movie. I pay the extra for no commercials but by the time it buffers 25 times through the movie or show.... I give up. It never used to do this so much but now it’s all the time. I go to the other competition movie app and it doesn’t do it on that app so I know it’s not my internet. Did you get rid of someone that knew what they were doing tech wise??? Also they used to change the movie choices more often and have newer movies, even better that the competition, but now the movies are always the same and all OLD movies and horror film it’s boring and sickening. There used to be more choices, what about PBS, what about getting up to date history channel. I’d like to see some historical dramas and movies!! I pay my fee each month and I’m barely getting good use out of the app. I Really think I’ll discontinue my subscription.
Buffering, Glitches, Selection or Movies and Shows, and ADSS
by Alise Leonardo on 2020/06/06 04:52
Buffering and Glitches• The app has a nice selection of shows and tv shows. But it buffers and glitches A LOT!!! This makes it hard and annoying to watch stuff. It took me 20 minutes to get a movie started. I had to constantly restart the app and exit in and out of the app; to stop the glitches. I’ve checked my WiFi and it works perfectly. You would think with the updates it has they would have already fixed the constant buffering, loading, and glitches. It gets to the point where I can’t, don’t, or want to even bother to use the app. Selection of Movies and Shows• Another problem which isn’t that big is the selection of Movies and Shows. Don’t get me wrong it has an “okay” selection but they don’t update it that much. They don’t have much of the movies or shows I’m looking for. A lot of the shows they have aren’t that popular. I find it hard to not rewatch most of the same stuff. I’ve had this app for a year now and have watched mostly everything I’m interested in. Commercials• The commercials and constant ads in the app make me go CRAZY. There are so many commercials. I just want to watch something without commercials every 10-15 minutes. With all this I recommend Netflix or another app to watch stuff. But if you are looking for a specific show that is anti popular this app probably has it. The app has issues where it gets to the point you don’t want to use it.
Great Content. Terrible layout.
by Raffopat on 2020/05/01 01:47
I love the shows on this platform. But I run in to so many problems with quickly starting where I left off after my previous view sessions. It takes me a minute or two to get back to the episode I was watching, WHICH IS A PROBLEM I DONT INTO WITH ANY OTHER PLATFORMS. Very disappointed with the customer inference & the interaction I have had with it so far. The way the system works causes strain which SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING. I am a very tech savvy person too. But this app makes it 10x more strenuous to operate. Using this app opposed to others is a terrible experience.. The only reason I continue paying for this is because the content is great. I am very disappointed with the customer interface being a new customer. Its 2020, hope you know how to fix it. Sheesh. I’ll be sure to be talking to my friend about this too. Hopefully they get this fixed up soon. Lots of potential. Terrible platform performance so far. Don’t even get me started when I get gypped by watching 2 long adds in a row. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Brand new customer
by Great Speller on 2020/04/20 18:42
Omg, not political ads! I am a brand-new customer. I took advantage of the $0.99 offer for a year. So far I am quite happy with the service except for one thing. I don’t have a problem with the commercials since I knew it would happen due to the offer price. What I don’t like is the same commercials over and over again. It seems like when watching a program with several episodes, there is a repetition of ads which is, quite honestly, not going to get me out there for those products. There are a few older dramas (and probably sitcoms that aren’t already in syndication) that I would like to watch, namely “Cold Case,” “Boston Public,” “Falcon Crest,” and “Picket Fences.” I’m sure that there are more, but I cannot come up with them at this time. I’ll keep watching. The old shows are usually much better than the reality shows like the Kardashians and Real Housewives that are on now.
Choose Wisely
by AidanMcGrath on 2019/09/13 01:26
Whatever you do, pick the plan you want from the get go. Do not try to change your plan after the fact. It doesn’t work. You will have to cancel your subscription and wait for its termination date - one month later. I didn’t think I minded having ads and then it hits you with these gross 70 second ads. I can’t watch those every 5-8 minutes when I’m just trying to enjoy a show. So I tried to change to the Hulu(no ads) plan but it won’t let me until my old plan terminates. So I tried making another account. Didn’t work; it recognizes that you have another account and says, “would you like to sign in with this one?”. When you hit no it doesn’t go through with the new account and if you hit yes, you weren’t making a new account to begin with. I’ve had this app for maybe an hour and already a huge turnoff. 3/5: the video quality was good in the 5-8 minutes I could stand watching. But most everything else is maddening.
Not Accessibility Friendly
by Thorned Rose Royalty on 2020/09/02 06:34
I’ve only had this app for a half an hour and I’m already so frustrated with myself for downloading it. I’m visually impaired, and while this app states that it has audio description it is impossible to use. I can’t find it anyway err on even the shows and movies it states has it, and when I go to the website to change it like it says I should it just gives me a description of what the feature is supposed to do instead of activating it. On this note, there is no way to find your continue watching. Where you can usually find shows and movies you have left off on other apps, this doesn’t have one, and if it does it need to be more easily accessible, even for beginners. It also didn’t save any of my shows/movies I clicked on that I’m interested in watching. Their “My Stuff” which I woul assume to be like Netflix’s “My LIst” only saved two of my shows I clicked on out of my eleven and one of my movies out of the eight. Over, extremely disappointed in the app and myself for having higher hopes in it.
PLEASE FIX, APP WONT OPEN,CRASHES EVERY TIME I OPEN IT!!!!
by Jewel Divine on 2020/04/28 18:24
How strange I write a review but App Store won’t post it‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️😡😡😡😡😡 Ever since latest update of week of April 20th 2020, the app crashes every time I click to open it, it won’t open it closes fast, faster than in the blink of an eye!!! This is a paid subscription that I pay more than $130+ a month for, could the developers please fix this asap!! Why should it be necessary to leave a review and never receive a reply and for it to come this far? Don’t you get paid to supervise the application enough to know there’s this huge bug or glitch whatever it is that it won’t let the PAYING CUSTOMER watch the programming without the unnecessary stress?!?!? Will this issue ever be fixed?!?! Going on a week now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t think you want your customers cancelling, let us know what’s going on, update us I think we have a right to know what’s going on and not be in a loophole!!!!! Way too many ads, I pay for Ad Free TV and it’s way too many repeated ads over again!!!! Kids filter should be updated for safer TV!!!!!!
Latest update crashes instantly
by DjinnAE on 2021/04/24 23:50
Happening again. For a week now the app instantly crashes. Didn’t get any refund last time when it did it for nearly a month. Doubt I’ll get one now. This was my first streaming service but have enough others now that it’s time to delete. The app itself is pretty good. Wide selection. Annoyingly doesn’t have a skip intro feature and when playing picture in picture it won’t immediately load next episode but these are small things. Most recent update has screwed the pooch. Instantly crashes as soon as you open it. Have tried power cycling, deleting app and reinstalling. Please fix. Kind of annoying that subscription apps often take a long time to fix these things (looking at you HBO) but don’t give any refund on their monthly charges. A few days is understandable but it should extend your next billing date. Paying for an unusable service, especially when stuck in isolation with limited options for entertainment is not good.
Several Problems
by Queen1sa on 2020/09/04 15:05
My biggest issue with the app is that certain episodes won’t download. For example, episodes 1-3 of a show might download then 4 will refuse to. For someone who relies primarily on downloads, this is a pain. Also, some episodes are missing entirely from certain shows. This may just be a copyright issue, but with all the other issues this app has, you never know. More recently, I’ve been having a problem where episodes I’ve downloaded won’t play. I end up having to close the app and open it again just to make the episode play. And often it won’t save my progress if I stop in the middle. Finally, when I try to remove things from My List, some shows won’t leave. It says they’re not in there anymore, but they still appear in the feed. Honestly, the only reason I’m giving this app any stars is that I enjoy the content. I would be much happier, however, if they could fix these problems.
Worst streaming app by far
by Ibrad14 on 2018/06/06 12:24
I should not have to login every time I open the app… Even seconds later after I navigate out of it, when I go back it says there was an error and I need to login again. I still do not like how new shows do not always pop up to the front of my queue. There might be a show that I’m just not in the mood to watch and there are a couple of unwatched episodes… And that stays at the top of my queue. That’s fine until something else new or comes along it should bump it down. I was just getting used to the moronic layouts when all of these other things start happening, I thought we’ll maybe it’s because it’s not an updated app. So I cannot hear only time it just update it. Is there no quality assurance checks before and after you get released? Is there no focus group? Is there no research of what other streaming apps are doing and doing well?
Issues with opening my app since the latest UPDATE
by Ebbyrich on 2021/04/21 19:44
My app literally won’t work at all any more doesn’t even go to load it automatically closes out in the same instant I am trying to go in it literally no next screen shows or anything I mostly use it on my phone so it’s a bummer that there’s nothing I can do to get my app to work so here I am trying to get in the right contact with someone for this issue to be fixed I tried everything possible on my end every other network is working perfectly fine on my phone so I know it’s not my device thank you other than this I haven’t had any issues with the app as long as I’ve been using it that’s why I assume it was the latest update cause it didn’t start happening until then
Goodnuf, but want more.
by Guvlem on 2018/11/03 17:10
I like the new layout. It’s easy to see him swipe through things. That said I don’t coming to contact with things that are outside the normal suggestions as often. That’s both good and bad, because I’m not exposed to some of what’s available Biggest concern is that after I’m done playing something the next thing auto plays and adds itself to my keep watching list. There are four things show up on my keep watching list that I don’t even want. I have to keep removing them, and they track my progress. This is a real issue because I’ve never watched these things on my own, and they usually play if I fell asleep or left it running for some reason
Commercial overload
by Retail mobile Detail on 2019/11/28 16:20
I really like the app but two things turn me off about it. The first is that when picking a show they play too many commercials. Once you pick a show they play 90 secs of commercials, then they play the opening credits for your show. Then they play another set of commercials before playing the show. Then they play 2 more sets of commercials during a show that is only 22-25 mins. After the show is over they play another set of commercials before and after closing credits. I know that it is only 90secs but this adds up and makes me disinterested in watching any shows. The other feature I dislike is that when trying to watch “live tv” even when you pick that option they will make you watch the show from the beginning. Then you have to fast forward to live tv, after watching commercials of course.....
Please Either Fix Your App Or Be Truthful
by Hostess40 on 2020/03/15 03:14
Here’s addition to my last comment - we have an Internet speed up to 1 GB and my husband is a programmer/analyst for a living, so we know the issue isn’t on our end. But will you please upgrade your servers so your app doesn’t constantly idle and lose connection. We pay for no commercials but STILL get them ALL the time. Constantly buffering. I’m a teacher so I used to use this for documentaries but now whatever you did I no longer can. Don’t even get me started on your ‘Continue Watching’ section! I have shows I’ve never watched all over it and can never find the shows I ACTUALLY AM WATCHING! And what the hell is it with eliminating episodes after only watching them once?! I started watching a series, one was Nancy Drew, the rest of my family wanted to watch the older episodes to catch up and they’re gone! What the hell! This is a brand new series people! Either fix your dam app or be honest about how you have things set up! Seriously!
Love it but a few problems
by Nuevitas23 on 2021/02/21 17:02
Hi there for people who read this please do download it even if there are a few problems.(and because of what I say) This app is perfect for me because their is a ton of anime and other shows though I do wish they speak English or Spanish because thats what I understand but other then that it is perfect. NOW THEN THE PROBLEMS. Sometimes the adds are way to long and I sometimes have to take breaks for off the phone because of school and then even after the add it sometimes replays and I don’t want that and when I was trying to watch an anime (Fairytale) it said we are having problems please try to refresh your screen and I did but it kept on saying that. Those are all the problems that I have so please try and fix them I will appreciate it thank you bye and have a nice day.
Up next fiasco
by dauhaz on 2019/10/13 05:01
I don’t understand the algorithm behind the episodes listed in “up next”. It is so annoying to have to exit that list and go back to “my stuff” to watch another episode every single time that I cannot give more than two stars. They’re not even in “my stuff”, and why would anyone want to watch random episodes of different shows one after the other instead of watching consecutive episodes of a show? Who does that? But that’s not even the point. I would rather see the new episodes of the shows in “my stuff” in the “up next” list than a bunch of episodes of random shows. For instance, I see the option of adding individual episodes to a list called “my episodes”, which cannot be accessed anywhere. Basically a blackhole. Why not add the episodes in “my episodes” to “up next” and give users the ability to manage the “my episodes” list? Just a thought...
Amazing App
by Cocolattebanana on 2020/08/28 04:00
I find this an amazing app and do not understand why there are so many bad reviews. There are tons of shows to watch of many different genres Cartoons, Dramas, Action, Comedy and so much more. I’m sorry if you didn’t choose the right plan. There have been no troubles for me except one thing for kids I find it annoying that you can’t select a age until 13 my 10 year old can only watch shows for little kids and has been begging me to let her have TV-14 but that has inappropriate content for her. So please please make you be able to do different age ratings for kids under 13 such as TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, and TV-PG. I find this a problem because my daughter can only watch kid shows. I also caught my 4 year old watching sailor moon and I am positive this is not age appropriate for her. PLEASE CHANGE THIS.
SO MANY GLITCHES!
by 🌸❤️❤️🌸❤️❤️🌸 on 2020/05/22 05:03
Great app, but there are a lot of bugs that need to me fixed. First off, the skip, I tried to resume an episode I was watching and every time I would go to skip back to where I was, it would restart the episode. Also, the ad problem needs to be fixed, it keeps playing the ads, then replaying them. Like it would have the ads run as normal, then replay them for no reason. Also there needs to be an easier way to change plans. Skipping is rather annoying as well because every time I skip forward or back it sends me back to where I was! It has even started to black out my screen at certain points in movies and TV shows. I’m very upset about this because all I want to do is watch a show, and it won’t let me! Please fix all of this!
Unable to login
by DlxProGamer999 on 2021/03/17 03:38
The Apple TV app is great, 5-star material, even. There’s basically no problems whatsoever! But, as expected, I’m not talking about the Apple TV app. The mobile app is, quite literally, impossible to use. You’re unable to login to it, no matter what you do (in my case, at least). I’ve tried uninstalling the app, hard resetting my iPhone, and reinstalling it again. I’ve tried turning off the WiFi on my iPhone’s end. I’ve even tried completely restarting my internet from the router itself, yet still no success. After all that, it still greets me with the same message I’ve been getting. “Hmm. Something’s up. Please check your internet settings and try again. If all’s fine on your end, visit our Help.” Everything I’ve tried has been of no use, and I can’t seem to find anyone with a similar issue, nonetheless a potential fix. As of right now, this app is useless; purely a small, admittedly mundane-looking painting on my wallpaper.
New app design terrible
by Unholyfatman on 2017/10/02 06:38
I don't normally take time out day to simply bash apps on iTunes but this new app redesign was so freaking terrible I couldn't get the bad taste out of my mouth so here I am. Tiles really guys seriously and not just tiles poor and restrictive ways to view shows I can't just get a bunch of small icons like before that give me optimal information no I need to thumb through every single tile to see anything well I guess the days of me discovering new shows is over because even browsing your data base is a nightmare so on my iPad Pro 12.9 I see 4 tiles at a time where as before I would see like 20 or more on my old iPad 9.7 inch this is absurd I advise if you do not want to lose people just in the settings simply add a legacy mode switch to the UI so us who aren't mouth breathing idiots can enjoy browsing your selection. Ah I feel a bit better now we'll back to struggling through your terrible UI which will most likely lead to me cancelling my subscription
Wack af when it when it’s not allowed to play commercials
by RabekaGolightly on 2021/02/26 00:25
Ever since I paid for commercials to be off this app it’s so hard to stream on GOOGLE CHROMECAST and my iphone. It’s doesn’t stream well at all. If leave the app on my phone I have reconnect to Chromecast. Whatever I’m watching starts over. Cant fast forward until I close the app three more times while still having to activate streaming to or just watching on my phone because there’s no in picture viewing. If I close the app to take a call or check a text the app closes. Show starts all again. This has been consistent since started paying for no commercials. Idc how many updates y’all have applied they still don’t apply to my issue with this app because I still have issue on my iPhone. Regardless of the fact I have a older mode Chromecast. Every one else’s app works just fine on it accept this one. Literally.
$5.99 for ads and terrible stream quality
by didntlikeit on 2019/09/20 17:02
This app has great content to be able to stream. But I hate that this app has prioritized ads over streaming connection. The app lags out almost 1/5 times I’m trying to watch something after an ad plays. I would say it might me my WiFi or data connection but Netflix doesn’t have this issue at all. All ads play perfectly but the content when streaming times out all the time. I pay $5.99 for tv like experience with all this content and the only real experience I’m getting is ads that I’m apparently paying for. I’m ending my subscription because this company puts advertising over quality of streaming which is what I had hoped to pay for. I don’t mind ads here and there. But I don’t want to watch ads every time because the app crashed on the streaming connection with pop up errors because only ads work. The app never crashes during an advertisement. Why is that?
Please fix....
by Moni.Moore on 2018/09/01 01:06
I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo
by tilleyrs on 2017/10/14 06:16
I'm the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it's to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your "swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards" function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
Bugs
by AllieH1008 on 2017/09/15 02:07
Every time I try to open the app on my phone, it says "something is wrong: try again." Extremely frustrating. I've tried reinstalling and updating it, and it's the same problem. It won't work. Update: the previous problem has gone away, but with the new update, I accidentally fast forward my show probably about ten times in each sitting somehow. Its extremely easy to do. I end up watching extra commercials because of this, and then when I try to find my spot again, I have to sit through a second set of commercials if I click multiple times looking for the right scene. It adds a LOT of commercials to my viewing time. I also have similar concerns to others reviews, as it used to be easy to find my shows and find new things I'd be interested in, but now it's not as intuitive, and it's more difficult to quickly find things.
Crashes and requires reinstalling after every updates
by hulu-user2 on 2020/07/13 07:35
I always know when there has been an update because the app never fails to crash mid-episode after one. The worse part is that it usually crashes right after a commercial break so when I get the app back up and running and resume the episode I have to sit through another minute of the same commercials. Simply closing the app after an update does not fix the problem. It requires me to delete the app from my device and reinstall. It’s ridiculously inconvenient and annoying. Please fix this. If I didn’t get such a good deal on my subscription, I probably would have cancelled it because of this issue. Besides this inconvenience every two weeks to a month the app does what it needs to do and is easy to navigate.
Well made app for the most part
by JoeFlyer1234 on 2020/07/02 16:46
For a mobile app it’s done quite nice, in my opinion easier and quicker to use than something like the mobile Netflix app. However there are some strange caveats. The app sometimes whites out (on my home screen the app will be there but the logo disappears and I can’t even load the app by clicking on it). This usually resolves itself after a bit. This is the only app I have that exhibits this behavior. Additionally, if you’re watching a show and lose internet connection, especially during an ad, the episode might start from the beginning when you get back to a good connection. It’s happened to me once and I’ll see if it happens again. Other than those two bugs it’s been a pretty smooth experience.
It WAS a good app!
by D-Pill on 2019/10/23 02:35
I’ve been using it for a year now and had no major issues. I pay for the Hulu+live tv and like how I can watch tv on my phone, laptop or actual tv. (Very handy during football and basketball season) Thought ever since it got updated (Sept. 2019) it’s been having major issues. The app completely exits from itself in the middle of a show, or the screen would go dark with a loading bar. Only to pop back up rewinding itself 20 seconds, playing then going dark again. Getting stuck in an annoying endless loop. I really like the app but if that is is the kind of service I’m going to keep having, especially paying $45/month. I might as well go back to my satellite provider. Now I don’t want to sound like I’m ranting but I ACTUALLY like this app and if it doesn’t improve soon, I’m going to have to part ways with it. So for now enjoy the 2 STARS.
You Really Need To Let People Take Screenshots
by Batman Kittyface on 2019/05/04 02:04
Obviously whoever added the feature which makes the screen completely black every time you take a screenshot has little to no experience with the internet. No content pirate has ever thought “ah, yes, i will capture this movie frame by frame and then splice these frames together, then record the audio separately and dub it over my newly spliced video and hope it syncs up”. That’s ludicrous. The inability to take screenshots not only serves no purpose for the actual creators of the movies or TV shows, it’s also a great hinderance to people who produce content like fanart and fan theories who would typically use such screenshots as references. By not allowing screenshots, you are actually turning legitimate customers of your content towards illegal streaming sites because This Is The Only Way To Take Screenshots Of Our Favourite Shows And Movies. No one wins. It’s frankly kind of bizarre that anyone ever thought this was a good idea.
Terrible forward and rewind functionality
by Terrible forward / rewind tool on 2017/10/04 00:53
The latest update rolled out an upgrade to the forward and rewind tool. On the surface it seems like a lot of fun and simple to use, but in practice the new tool is a nightmare. It is incredibly easy to accidentally rewind to the beginning or end of the show simply by tapping the screen when it's gone dark or trying to pull up details on the next episode. You can correct your mistake either because it immediately sends you back into a 60-90 second commercial break that locks the forward / rewind tool. Once you've finished the break and can go back to your place, you have to watch another 60-90 second commercial break to return to your original placement. It's so incredibly frustrating I gave up and went back to the desktop experience. This tool needs more testing and revisions so it's not so easy to trigger.
Inconsistency
by Leek in boat on 2018/10/18 22:12
There is this odd occurrence whenever I use this app and I usually run into a few problems: 1) Sometimes the next episode doesn’t play. It fails to load even if I am connected to the internet, am the only one watching, and have it all paid for. 2) Sometimes, even with good connection, the app doesn’t load up anything. It’ll open but every single tab says there is nothing to see here. 3) In the same vein as failure to load following episodes, there are times where I can’t even watch a completely different show. I could let the inconsistency of following episodes in a series fail to load slide, only a small bit though, but, when I can’t watch anything else for some reason? All of a sudden nothing is watchable? In closing, either shows don’t load or the entire app doesn’t work properly. Inconsistency, sometimes it works really well and then the other half of the time it doesn’t work at all. I have deleted and reinstalled, I have turned off and restarted my phone, I have closed and restarted the app but it still has the same problem. I just end up not watching anything for a bit and do something else; which is great, although, if getting me to do something else was the goal, why pay for an inconsistent service at all?
Doesn’t Like Chromecast
by Dhauxjdkajdjsj4567 on 2021/05/26 05:31
It utterly baffles me how this app can continue to be riddled with glitches in terms of connecting to Google Chromecast. This can’t be an uncommon method of viewing and yet the app cannot maintain connectivity for more than a few moments. And I don’t mean that in the sense of video disconnecting from the TV, but the app as remote quickly loses its ability to function as such. The pause function doesn’t respond on iPhone Lock Screen or on the opened app, and I have to exit out of the app to reconnect to Chromecast. This often results in either the episode starting from the beginning and thus losing my place and/or it repeats the advertisements again that I had just seen instead of resuming the episode. Again, it’s just maddening to me that this is somehow still an issue. Seems an easy thing to fix. I Don’t have this problem with other streaming apps.
Horrible streaming/improved but still issues
by the amazing flying vega on 2020/04/27 17:39
$15 a month for no commercials. Yet my video stops multiple times to tell me, Sorry, an error has occurred while streaming this video. We apologize for any inconvenience. Yeah thanks. It also doesn't resume videos from all devices. Save your money and skip unless you're desperate. Update: streaming is better now but there are still issues with the app. It’s constantly disconnecting from my phone. It still plays on the tv but I have reconnected to pause etc. other super annoying thing, once you’re show is finished it auto plays suggested shows not in your queue. This is super annoying when it’s a show you don’t want to watch. It used to skip to something in your queue which makes sense. Suggested shows should be somewhere else.
Need to make it more compatible with iPhone X
by wen_d_ta on 2017/12/16 19:01
Besides everyone’s concern about the sensitivity on the rewind and forward, which I agree is soooooo frustrating, I just got the iPhone X and some shows don’t take up the full screen of the phone which is the whole point of the phone! The shows need to expand through the whole screen. also it would be very helpful if they could but the time as well on the iPhone 7 when you tapped of the screen you would see the time come down and now I have to click out of the app to see what time it is and that’s frustrating as well... I know it’s a process and you’re trying i hope my suggestions help!
Disorganized
by Rebel Ghost on 2018/10/24 21:23
The constant changes to the layout just screams lack of confidence in the product and makes it very difficult to navigate. Please do something about the subpar subtitles do you actually watch and listen to the stories or are you just writing what you want. Fast forwarding and rewinding needs to be adjusted there’s nothing more frustrating then that suspenseful reveal that rolls right into commercial and you try to roll back a few seconds but have to watch another set of commercials. Very frustrating when you have to stop your device mid show only to come back to your place not saved and your going back and forth in the time line to find your spot only to have to watch two to three sets of commercials (I get that this service includes commercials but it’s the navigation that’s frustrating). Don’t be racist the stereotyping and picking what commercials you think I should watch is insulting.
Read this please
by advcgcdxc on 2021/05/19 02:23
Im pretty sure that y’all heard of a show called Steven Universe amazing show one of my favorite cartoons but anyways, this is the thing there are 4 seasons and the full amount of seasons are 6 and I have bin waiting so long for y’all to finally complete the seasons, but it’s almost like y’all completely forgot about it and maybe this can remind you to remember that y’all still haven’t finished uploading episodes of it, and I’m aware that you guys have other shows that you have to finish uploading but, you know it’s bin so long sense you ever uploaded any Steven Universe episodes, so I hope this got your attention and maybe soon or later y’all can finally fish uploading this show it would really make my day, please and thank you for your time.
Autoplay Not Working!!!
by Kdove98 on 2019/08/09 03:02
Autoplay is not working and randomly stops one episode in while other times the thing will play all night long when I fall asleep. The app is poorly designed and simple features like the ability to skip credit scenes and title sequences are missing yet the price is still the same NFlix. Why do you have to pay for a headache? How can this company not build an app properly? You have billions of dollars. Last time I canceled because the app was falling apart and riddled with error messages that even uninstalling couldn’t fix on my phone and tablet. And they have no appropriate customer service. You guys have no respect for your customers and that’s why you’ll always be second or simply lose them over time to better streaming services. Maybe I’ll just cancel every other month and keep signing up for the free first month option so I can cheat you as much as you’re cheating me.
Good! But, a few issues
by Anon.2018 on 2018/10/31 13:30
I do not like the user interface set up all that much. For example, let’s say I just watched a series. I close app then re-open it at a later time. I expect to have that series somewhere on my dashboard but it’s not. In fact I typically have to retype it in the search box just to find it again. Second, I’m watching a show and I click to go to new episode; however, the GUI is gone! No play, backwards, forward, pause, scroll bar...nothing but an “X.” I contacted IT support and they didn’t know anything. So, it’s typical that I’ll have to refresh the page or log out and log in five to fifteen times over a few hours. But, in the end for the price and volume of shows it’s worth putting up with the glitches.
Good app, one complaint
by DenaInNC on 2021/04/09 04:32
I like the app most of the time. It works well, streams well, and is fairly intuitive. My complaint is that in the last few updates, it has gone back and forth in allowing me to “watch” shows minimized while doing other things, and then not. The same app has pretty much always allowed it on my iPad. I enjoy that option. It is nice to multitask (i.e. check weather, reply to texts, read an email) without having to interrupt my live viewing experience. Unfortunately, it has come and gone repeatedly with the last few updates. If everyone doesn’t like it, at least make it an option in the settings/profile for the app.
Can’t play in background
by Dragon vale man on 2017/11/21 05:01
I’m not going to say the new update is terrible because I honestly don’t think it is. I however have been annoyed at the fact that the tv shows can not be played in the background on the device. Normally people will listen to music as they use their device. However, for me that is tv shows. Because I have watched this particular show so much I don’t need to physically see it anymore, I have it playing in the background. Like another reviewer said, no one should be expected to stay glued to a show for an extended amount of time. That user wanted PIP and his PIP was revived. Last night even I was able to play in the background starting Saturday the 18th and ending the 19th. Please bring this back or install it if what I was experiencing was a bug. Thank you for you time.
News subscriber
by Ranget1 on 2019/07/31 16:14
Just switched from sling last weekend so my rating is based on limited experience... So far I’ve found navigating the apps (on my fire stick and the iOS mobile app) to be cumbersome. The live tv controls are nothing like any cable, satellite, or other streaming tv options I have used... the guide is not good and only has next episodes as far future viewing so you have to search if you looking to record something. And going in and out of the guide and watching live tv is nothing short of frustrating to this point. I’m sure it will get easier with repetition but really... my wife will never have it down. And then there’s the no AMC or Paramount channels. The good thing is I can cancel at any time and there is a lot of content so hopefully they can improve the TV guide soon!

This App Needs Help
by Appcent on 2021/06/11 21:35
So much is wrong with this app. Connecting to chromecasts and others is a tedious chore, and it does not keep place with where you are when watching a program. This causes double and in extreme cases triple or quadruple the commercials to play when you are trying to watch the program. Extremely dissatisfied.
Terrible
by Fhcjtcjtgfccccc on 2021/06/11 20:43
I downloaded a couple of episodes and they say I require internet to view them, what a joke!

good app BUT WHY U NEED MY LOCATION I WAS JUST TRYING TO WATCH ATTACK ON TITAN WHAT U NEED IT FOR I don’t like apps knowing my location so my question is why u need it
Constantly freezes
by Ali2girl on 2021/06/11 17:50
I am constantly having to close and reopen the app because it freezes. I get the spinning wheel of torture and it doesn’t resume so I close and reopen. Frequently I get “connection error” when I’m streaming on my tv. Getting pretty close to canceling my subscription.
Seriously?
by (JimJr) on 2021/06/11 17:34
Every other update brings back automatic subtitles. I turn them off then start the next episode and again the subtitles automatically come back on. This has been months. Fix. Netflix let’s me set limits as to what rating of shows to allow. This helps me to not waste so much time filtering through junk ma and r rated shows , which means nothing more then highly immoral and excessively violent material. Please program in a filter in Hulu. Filter also to let me filter out the horribly immoral lgbtq content. 90% of the time I load up Hulu I want to go to (my stuff) but for some strange reason it is put far right in the top menu. Please shift that over next to home. Please get rid of the pride heading in the top menu right of home. I do not want that extremely immoral heading in my Hulu menu!!
Why’d you remove South Park
by Troygod on 2021/06/11 14:48
I can’t believe you changed South Park to a live tv subscription only, boo on you
Was a good service.
by Oz Cool on 2021/06/11 14:20
Now between 4 ads in a twenty minute episode and the constant barrage of liberal propaganda. I can’t seem to enjoy an episode of a tv show.
The lgbtqaaip+^2 add campaign?
by Jfhehajah on 2021/06/11 14:18
I get Hulu runs ads to make extra profit but literally every other ad they make you watch in between the show is about a high schooler coming out of the closet or 6’3” dudes in dresses. Could you at least balance it out with regular commercials like for cereal or used cars?
A few good things, but lots of frustration
by deadpool_94 on 2021/06/11 13:50
The app used to be great and almost flawless. For at least 6 months this app is absolutely terrible. On iOS/iPadOS, the app hast to constantly be relaunched as it will either just hang on the hulu splash screen, or the home section with boxes where text eventually loads or not and again has to be relaunched. This app used to be the gold standard of a streaming app and how it should be but its just clunky. I would say its a device issue but it acts the same on an iPhone X to an iPhone 12 to an iPad Pro 11”. The next thing that is terrible is the Cast feature. It used to be acceptable, now you can’t even adjust playback or pause without the content you are watching from either starting over or just getting messed up and causing frustration. It’s like Disney took over the controlling interest in Hulu, raised prices every so often and made the app terrible. It’s a shame.
Ads
by vdjdgxgdhdy on 2021/06/11 12:11
Sometimes I have to go back after an ad and they replay the ads it gets annoying and tiring
Bruhhh
by well then the reveiw also sucs on 2021/06/11 06:05
Rlly I gotta pay to just watch stuff. Why do make us payyyyyyy. I don’t even got online money so fric you! >:[
There’s one thing
by Avery 10009977 on 2021/06/11 04:10
I hate that there are adds like every 5-10 minutes it really annoying and I don’t want to pay each month for there to be no adds. I hope you can at least have, like 1 or 2 less adds! Thank you for your time!!
Ads are getting out of hand
by Matiboi92 on 2021/06/11 03:48
I was skeptical about paying so much for a streaming service that still used ads to make more money, and I should have trusted my instinct. I thought I would have a few commercials per episode, at the start, middle and toward the end? I just watched an commercial, a 2 minute intro of the show, another 3 commercials, show for 5 minutes and then another 2 commercials. I haven’t made it half way through the show and I’ve watched 10 minutes worth of ads. I wish I could get my money back since they are making a killing on them.
hulu audio out of sync samsung tv
by gromerohn82 on 2021/06/11 03:37

Money Grabbing
by Rednova117 on 2021/06/10 22:58
I do enjoy Hulu and all the variety and the different titles they have available but at some point the amount of ads are ridiculous. We are already paying to use the platform, you shouldn’t make us sit through ads. But we can get less ads by paying more. It’s just a money grabbing scam. No respect for customers.
Y’ALL ARE OVERREACTING
by AtlasDestroyer on 2021/06/10 20:28
OK SO WHAT IF THERE ARE ADS? DOES YOUTUBE HAVE ADS? YES! DOES EVERYONE STILL LIKE IT? HECK YEAH! So explain to me why you are all acting like 3 year olds and complaining about the ads and the glitches and blah blah blah- WHAT DOES THE WORD ADS MEAN IN THE FIRST PLACE? ADVERTISEMENTS! WHAT DO ADVERTISEMENTS DO? ADVERTISE THEIR PRODUCTS! How the heck do you think you can go find your favorite soap brand in the store without even looking for it huh? IT’S. BECAUSE. OF. ADS. AND GLITCHES. Does Netflix glitch? YES! Does IMDB glitch? YES! Does YouTube glitch? YES! EVERYTHING GLITCHES FOR GODS SAKE. YET I SEE NO-YES I MEAN IT-COMPLAINTS ON ANY OF THE PLATFORMS THAT I LISTED ABOVE. Please stop acting like cranky 3 year olds and respect Hulu for the work they have put in. On a positive note, Hulu is doing great! I love the new update! It’s super cool and I love it! Sorry that I have less to say about the positive stuff, but you all really need to calm down and get a Snickers. - A very happy Hulu user

Netflix is better
by 8ells07 on 2021/06/10 18:45
Hulu has some great shows that you can’t find anywhere else, which is great! But why pay money and still have to watch ads. I also don’t like the fact you can’t skip the intro to the show.

Subscription + ads is a no-go
by Asteinagel on 2021/06/10 18:40
Man, you guys still make us watch ads even after charging a subscription fee? That’s crazy. Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime, they’ve figured out how to avoid the ads. Why can’t you guys? I’m glad I cancelled.

Nightmare
by Iskander.X on 2021/06/10 08:03
A nightmare of a steaming service that blackmails base users into paying not to have 5 minutes worth of ads in a 20 min show, do yourself a favor and pay for a cheaper more accessible steaming service.
so many ads expensive
by Rober_man on 2021/06/10 07:47
it didnt used to be this way but now they have uped the price and you have to watch ads
Pointless paying for hulu subscription
by Dissapointed Hulu Customer on 2021/06/10 04:19
We pay for Hulu subscription yet still have the 3 minute adds. During the add, the app glitches and starts the add over again. Most of the time adds end up being 6 minutes long. Hulu also skips some episodes of shows. Skipping episodes and 6 minute long adds is just not worth it. I’ll be canceling my subscription for next month. Might as well just stick with Netflix.
Ads
by ??Sister_Galaxy¿¿ on 2021/06/10 03:04
With the ads like I’m OK having ads but when they’re almost 2 minutes long and you can’t even skip them that’s not what I’m OK with it’s very annoying and it should be less than two minutes. But I like all of the shows on there and that you don’t have to pay for them you just have to pay for the app.

Aight one thing.
by 4628482 on 2021/06/09 22:37
I LOVE hulu but this actually made me pretty mad. I watch anime a lot and hulu was the only place i really watched it. I also want to clarify that i have and all access account so i should be able to watch everything (sorry if that is the wrong definition but i can watch any show basically). One day i get on hulu to watch Assassination Classroom and all that other stuff when it tells me that im not old enough? I was so upset. I even tried updating the app and it didn’t work. So um, can i have my shows back?
Ads❌
by jortfi on 2021/06/09 16:03
Their is an ad every 3 minutes
Everyday everytime
by gakwood13f on 2021/06/09 15:50
I believe this is the worst app I have ever experienced. I pay for the service that’s why I keep it but everyday and every time I open the thing it says we are sorry something went wrong. I just wanted to complain. Thanks

Volume on ads
by Business travel1 on 2021/06/09 11:15
Do you Really need to have the volume be extra high on ads vs the show you are watching? Constantly turning it up and down.
Worst app for streaming to TV
by ayshiamo on 2021/06/09 06:15
I’ve used this app for years and it’s always been bad with Chromecast but recently it just took a turn for the worst. I only use it with Chromecast and it’s a NIGHTMARE. Loses connection all the time, controls don’t work, etc. They need to fix it.
New update still the same
by orozcomp on 2021/06/09 05:50
I can’t watch some shows because of the parse error 2. I can’t watch Sons of Anarchy. How can I fix it?
Too many notifications
by juliajustfine on 2021/06/09 02:15
This app is great and all until you realize it constantly has a red notification bubble. I hate apps that do this, so I quickly deleted it. I only have the Hulu subscription now bc it comes with Spotify.
Horrible App
by Hkgvbjjfhjbhhvggvh123123 on 2021/06/09 02:01
This app is so buggy and freezes constantly. Did you get a 5 year old to program this? The streaming buffers every 30 seconds and the ads will play several times in a row because the buffering is so buggy.
Stole my money
by Yuhh🥵✨ on 2021/06/09 01:19
I was re doing my subscription but then i did and it kicked me off the app, so when I got on Hulu again it told me to re do it again and now I have 5$ and I had 14$

Terrible app
by Ichabad on 2021/06/09 00:49
This app is awful if you are trying to cast to a Chromecast. I can start a show fine, but if O close my phone (lock) and then open the app back up when the show is over, or if I want to pause or change the show it starts the show completely over. It is the most annoying thing I can think of with an app. Why can’t the app remember where I am in the show instead of starting over every single time I open my phone up again? Figure it out Hulu!!! Seriously makes me think about cancelling the subscription and switching to something I can actually use.
ADS
by Chickfilastarbucks on 2021/06/09 00:27
i don’t know what y’all going on with this “Ad” business, but it’s not sliding with me. the fact that we already have to PAY to watch anything on the app and you’re trying to give us ads as well is STUPID. GET IT TOGETHER AND TAKE AWAY ONE OR THE OTHER
Useless basically unless you’re on WiFi
by joromemsmith on 2021/06/08 23:51
I have a 5G phone and even if I’m in areas with 5G this app suffers from buffering it’s like the buffering takes so long at time that I don’t even care to finish the show or movie I’m watching. The experience compared to a app like Netflix is night and day. Netflix works no matter where I’m at or what time of day it is or even if I’m somewhere that has a lot of people Netflix works and the user UI in video is miles better than on here with this app these problems can be fixed. Even HBOMAX and Disney+ are better than this app overall.

TOO. MANY. ADS.
by sunnysxmxnthx on 2021/06/08 20:49
oh my. i should not have to pay MORE MONEY than what i’m paying to not see an AD. it’s ridiculous. I switched from cable to hulu for the purpose of no ads and i can watch whatever i want. but at this point i might just switch back. everyone saying “just pay to get them removed” need to send some money over because i can’t stand watching a 20 minutes show that turns into an hour because of how many ads there are.
Great app but ads for paid app
by mods are nice on 2021/06/08 18:41
I really like Hulu, there are a lot of shows that are fun to watch but having to watch “the good doctor” with 5 ads in each one is a bit much like if you are going to have us pay 6 dollars a month and watch so many ads just makes it very annoying.
Inappropriate commercials for children
by BabyFacedAssassin83 on 2021/06/08 18:26
Why are you showing my small children ads for ED medication, HIV meds, birth control ads, etc? In what universe is this appropriate, or even smart use of your clients’ advertising dollars?

by Vladi UwU on 2021/06/08 16:14
Hulu is amazing it’s just that when ads come in it makes me frustrated like when I am watching “My Hero Academia” it’s my fav show that’s not good even YouTube is free and their ads are 15 secs and lower.
Amazing
by YesTheChosenOne on 2021/06/08 14:25
Simply amazing. Has all the shows I could ever want. One problem however is there is ads everywhere (HULU NO ADS ALSO CONTAINS ADS) this is a big problem that needs to be solved but this is still great for streaming tv.

DON’T PAY FOR THIS
by thatdude2008 on 2021/06/08 06:26
Hands down this is the worst app I have ever used! Really good content, but the issues I get are that the sound doesn’t match what is being said and I have to restart. Randomly after starting a show, the screen just goes black and does not play. First I thought it was my TV or internet connection, it it ONLY happens on Hulu. I have tried to give this platform a chance multiples times or an extended period of time with the same results.
Not able to login to account and volume of commercials is TOO LOUD!!!
by Meel042 on 2021/06/08 05:31
I’ve tried to log in to my account on this app for over two years!! it always says that there’s something is wrong with my wifi. I tried using my school wifi, my mobile data, and 2 other wifi options to log in and it still DOES NOT WORK!!!! It is the most frustrating things… i even tried to login in through the browser and it still does not work. Since i am not able to watch on my phone, i watch hulu on my tv. This would be fine if the volume of the shows/ movies and the volume of the commercials were equal. But the volume of the commercials is two or three times louder than the shows/ movies. It is horrible and has made my family and i resort to watch shows on other applications. It is so annoying that i am considering canceling my hulu subscription.
Does not play on firestick
by lionessden23 on 2021/06/08 04:45
On Firestick the initial ads do not play leaving you unable to watch the show. Many glitches for 2021 technology.

Bad for casting

Is Hulu sussssssss
by babsindbagsvmabdhsksmv on 2021/06/08 02:23
Basically it will not let me whatch anything on a tv or anything that is not mobile, and says you can only whatch it one your mobile device. But on it you have to turn location services on to even get on the app, I mean why do you need location services on for that that’s weird and it happened all the sudden, also none of the others things worked like logging out and getting back in. But I don’t know if it’s just me or what. Over all it’s pretty good other than glitches and ads when I’m on stuff that isn’t live but other episodes are.

Too many adds, even with “add free”
by nunniebelle on 2021/06/08 00:34
Honestly I love Hulu. I pay a lot of money per month for add free and it’s not add free, movies tv shows etc. it’s really disappointing knowing that if I downgrade, there’ll be more adds.
Lots of Glitches
by ~DragonQueen~ on 2021/06/08 00:32
Hulu has a great selection but unfortunately I’ve had a lot of issues with this app. - Sometimes it will lose track of my progress with a show and set me back a bunch of episodes whenever I leave full screen - Shows will fail to load, then the app crashes - The worst one - any time I try to play downloaded content, it completely crashes the app and I cannot get it to work I hope these glitches get fixed soon, cause I wanna keep using the app!
App: 5 stars. The ads diminish the utility
by GardenKeeper on 2021/06/07 23:22
Hulu was the third tier of the Disney+, ESPN+ package that I purchased. It has some interesting offerings that one can’t get elsewhere. But the ads are overpowering and significantly diminish the viewing experience.
False commercial

Improvements
by freshguy202169 on 2021/06/07 22:47
It lots of titles to watch but the app itself needs improvement, skipping a episodes in series is not user friendly, or controlling the app while connected to a smart tv is difficult, if improvements are made this could be better!!
Ads

Hulu is great but this app is not.
by Scatter man1 on 2021/06/07 19:13
This app does not work well. I use it through chromecast and it always disconnects. If you are watching a show and need to go back into the app to rewind or pause it will have disconnected requiring you to reconnect and possibly starting the show over.
Hulu App
by Rack_City_Brax on 2021/06/07 15:36
My favorite part of this app is when it decides to randomly not work whether it be over WiFi or cellular data. It starts to play the show or movie then just shuts down.
Problems
by Guest 967 on 2021/06/07 15:01
The content is good. The only thing bothering me is the timing on a series. It is a pain then the app doesn’t pick up where I left off. It has happened to many times.
Repeat Ads
by wolfgang aristotle on 2021/06/07 09:56
Hulu will have you watching the same ad 3 times before it ever goes back to your show. It’ll cut off a character mid-sentence to show ads, then show ads during the ad break the show set up, then it proceeds to reload the same ads for a third time before the show starts again. Most of the seasons from tv shows they have are missing, are 90% ads, and it’s basically turning into cable where you record episodes to watch them instead of a streaming service. Hulu could’ve been as great as netflix but sold out too far and basically put netflix out of business just to trip over itself and its gonna crash soon if they companies only focus is money from the companies instead of the people watching their “streaming service”. Another testament to their hunger for money rather than making a good streaming service is at every turn hulu begs you for money from the ads to the “add-on” feature

Recent Update Requires Location - On An iPad
by Comfortably Dumbb on 2021/06/07 01:40
A recent update now requires location be enabled on both Android and iOS. Setting aside my displeasure with burning through battery using location services ostensibly so Hulu can farm unnecessary data, it makes the app unusable on devices that don’t have a GPS - like my iPad.

Commercials are insane.
by MarsZKronic on 2021/06/06 17:31
Okay I understand they have to make money. But I have live tv and I will pause my show, then while it’s paused the program automatically starts a 5 minute commercial. Ten plays the show. So when I have to go back to watch what I missed, it then plays another 5 minute break. Unbelievable! This is just overkill you guys, make your money but not at excessive inconvenience to your customers.
Title here
by #harsh reviewer on 2021/06/06 15:59
So I love Hulu and how I’m able to watch anime but usually when I go to watch it it says that there’s an issue and it won’t play. Then I can’t ever watch it and I don’t know what to do or how to fix it and it’s really annoying.
Commercials REALLY LOUD
by cheesyamburger on 2021/06/06 13:57
I don’t even want to use Hulu anymore because a few days ago the settings on it must have changed and now Every commercial breaks SCREAMS AT YOU because the volume is way louder on the commercials than during the show. I’ve noticed this for Bobs Burgers and American Dad so far.... I’m literally using Netflix until this problem is fixed cause I can’t deal with adjusting the volume every 5 minutes.
Tooo many ads
by Kharvey18 on 2021/06/06 13:26
Ads every 10 mins take a hour just to watch a 30 min show
Out of control ads
by Erd180 on 2021/06/06 13:13
I used to love this app but the commercials have gotten out of control. I’ve been paying for “ad free” service for years. Instead of ad free what I’ve noticed is that the ads keep increasing as well as the price. Previously ads were maybe 60 seconds now it is 2:30 with about 4-5 commercial breaks for a 40 minute show. It is to the point where I’m going to look into other streaming services if this does not improve.
Hulu Live Streaming issues
by Mr Streamer on 2021/06/06 11:42
Why does the dialog start without selecting a show and can’t be paused since last update? Why does the Apple TV have to be restarted to stop the dialog? Never fails, every time Hulu pushes an update another problem is created! Must be incompetent coders working for Hulu. Fix your Hulu Live streaming problems on Apple TV!
Glitchy and too many ads
by TechieFoodie101 on 2021/06/06 05:33
The commercials are ridiculous. When you return to watch a show it starts at the beginning and TWO sets of ads. One before it starts and another after the opening credits run. Then again when guy fast forward to the spot you left off. Plus, they run the same ads OVER AND OVER. This makes me want to avoid any and all products advertised!
Service, what Service?
by im4him4ever on 2021/06/06 05:04
I do not understand why I pay $75.00 per month for Hulu live and I am blocked from watching live tv on my phone while I’m on vacation. It states I must use the app when I’m at home. What’s the point? I pay for a service that you do not provide. And while I’m at it I pay extra for no ads and guess what ads, ads, and more ads. What am I paying for? This could be a great service but it’s not. I pretty much watch the exact same 4 shows over and over and that seems simple enough to provide.
5.1 is finally here!

I’ll put it this way they give it to me for free and still me nor anyone I know uses it everytime I give it a chance I’m thrown back into 1998 we came so far only for Hulu and YouTube to simply betray the consumer and sell out
Good Potential
by gabriellenor19 on 2021/06/06 02:46
Hulu has great potential but constantly fails to resume at the last stopping point across all devices: phones, computer, fire stick & roku. Constant connection errors no matter where or how strong the internet is, the only thing I can think of is a glitch on Hulu’s end. Ad breaks also sometimes start in the middle of a character’s sentence or at another awkward time & the show/movie sometimes resumes at a different point after the advert. I love the Hulu original TV Shows & they have a different movie selection compared to other streaming services like Netflix.

I have this app and my WIFI connected at 5G, you would think this would be a perfect experience but all too often there is buffering, loss of stream and just an absolute horrible viewing experience. I had the ATT app and NEVER had such issues. But I know these reviews fall on deaf ears, Hulu doesn’t care because they get their money and screw the viewer. I think I’m going back to ATT.
I enjoy the content BUTTTTT
by Burgermizer on 2021/06/05 21:48
The app does not sync across my devices like it says so if I watch on my phone then on another device I have to hunt for it. It also does not have the option to reset my shows on mobile so it only plays the last 5 min of rewatched shows.... and finally the app crashes every time I open it. I have the latest updates. I have reached out to CS multiple times with no response... this is a five star worthy app on non mobile devices for me just the mobile version gives me issues.

To everyone saying there are to many adds

BRO if you don’t like the adds SO MUCH to the point where you HAVE To right a review just pay for less adds if your so angry about it it’s not gonna change so just leave it alone also it’s only 3 add breaks it’s not a big deal just chill it can get annoying some times so just pay more if you hate it that much. I like the app a lot though I can binge Naruto on the go with my phone or I can chill on a couch at my house honestly this is one of the best apps to watch t.v on they won’t have every tv show in the world ofc but it has a wide selection of movies and shows it’s evenly balanced between the two and it’s just an amazing app in general it has shows Netflix doesn’t so over all its amazing an you should get it. just keep in mind how much effort and work it took to make this app don’t come here all angry when they are trying their best to make an app that YOU got at least they aren’t charging to download it also if you get a subscription even though you SAY it has bugs why get the subscription at all I don’t understand why you do that. Also stop with saying there’s bugs there’s not not for me anyway so it is most likely your wifi or you device because mine is fine so don’t be so angry at the developers they worked really hard to create this

Fix the glitches
by Dougie b23 on 2021/05/27 12:01
For one, if I watch the commercial, and zoned out and missed what it said when it came back, I shouldn’t hit go back and have to watch another minute and a half of commercials, I have add, something boring is on, doesn’t mean I’m paying attention when my show comes back, Tubi is completely free and if I watch the commercials, (and it can be 3 commercials back) I can rewind an hour and I don’t have to watch the adds I did before, but seriously the GLITCH where if I hit the wrong show, go back to menu, it keeps playing the audio of the other show and then I have to restart my AppleTV again to get it to stop, and I seen someone complain about this a year ago on here, just tested it a few minutes ago, I had it up to the audio of 5 shows while another was playing, (played diff shows, some were still in commercials so I could tell the difference), your glitch is that bad a year later, and for the people that are saying we should upgrade for no commercials, first I said Tubi is free and their commercial and playback feature is better and the main thing atm is a lot of us can’t upgrade since we get it with the Disney+ and/or the ESPN bundle, (but why should we have to pay more for it to improve?) please fix your app
Poor Convenience?
by Gingeraide on 2021/01/07 19:22
I binge a lot of the shows I watch, and I pay to have no commercials, and yet there’s so many annoying bugs that really make it hard to conveniently use this app, the most prevalent one being that there used to be a widget that would allow you to watch your show as you scrolled/used other apps in your phone, and then suddenly it just disappeared? Without an update, just stopped being able to do that. Really irritating, yet I find that if I have my phone connected to my aux in my car and I pull up the gps while leaving the show running, the audio will continue to play soooo??? Another HORRIBLY ANNOYING thing is when the next episode automatically plays, it will just REPLAY THE SAME EPISODE I WAS JUST WATCHING. And more than half the time, if you press ‘next episode’, it will replay the same episode again anyways. Sometimes the next episode button isn’t there, and I have to restart the app, then go into the series details, scroll to the episode I was on and click the next one manually. This isn’t a rare occurrence, it’s every other episode. Please fix this, I’m going to stop paying so much per month if these simple conveniences aren’t addressed 😞
Make it easier to switch plans!
by wildbellelover on 2019/10/28 00:43
as a new user i of course decided to go with the cheaper plan to “try it out”. i haven’t even gotten thru the first episode of the show i was dying to watch and i’m already so over all of these ads! the option to upgrade isn’t even on the app.. i had to go log in on the web which again requires way more clicks than necessary.. although after reading reviews i guess it’s a good thing it’s not so easy because apparently you have to wait until your current subscription is cancelled which completes a month later!??? OMG! you’d think you would want to make your new subscribers experience the best.. again you should make it easier to upgrade or start everyone out with the BEST plan first.. and then give them the option to switch once the free trial ends.. just saying.. i don’t plan to cancel right away.. i guess i’ll leave it on during the free trial and use the app if i’m that desperate to watch an episode i’m willing to sit thru the same ads over and over every few minutes while trying to get thru an episode. best believe my subscription will be cancelled as soon as the trial is up! so disappointing! ugh!
It’s great but there’s one thing
by auburn tigers58907829901 on 2021/05/24 21:13
My episodes keep on skipping and the up next thing keeps on coming up too soon. Like if it says it has this certain amount of time left it could be three seconds or 289 seconds and sometimes it ends too soon. It’s quite annoying. Also the ads always pop up, like after the episode ends it plays an ad and then I have to wait for my episode. I home you can fix these bugs on tv and on my phone.😇😇😇😇😇but still highly recommend Edit: also I looked through some other reviews and there was one that said that you could just pay but what if your trying to save your money. Like I don’t want to pay money that I will probably need in the future just to get rid of some ads. They also said that there only 3 ad breaks. There is way more than three and if there is than it takes forever for them to end. So pls just consider some other views and pls fix the problems bc this could be so perfect if you did
Never ending issues
by _tinydancer_ on 2020/04/01 06:48
You would think for app with this many subscribers and this high of a subscription rate (for the live tv) the least they could do is make an app that works. The app has near constant glitches. It often plays the audio of one show while a completely different show plays. It never remembers where you left off in a show so you have to watch the same commercial breaks again. It freezes, it crashes. It has the worst UI. You can’t set shows that you’ve recorded to automatically delete after you’ve watched them so you have to do it manually. Even when you record shows, you can only fast forward through the commercials maybe 25% of the time. One show I record never records the whole episode. Even after I delete it, it stays this way. Then miraculously, after a week, the full episode appears. Seems like this app is perpetually a year behind it’s competitors. I really hope someone reads this and looks into all these perpetual issues, but I’m not holding my breath. Get it together. You owe your paying customers more than this.
Commercials and streaming service
by bakachibichan1 on 2020/11/21 07:41
So, for the commercials I don’t mind watching. However if you want to rewind to watch a scene before the commercials break you have to watch 3 minutes of commercials (1 min when you first pass through, 1 min when you rewind, and another minute when you pass through again). It’s kind of annoying that it does that and doesn’t save that you already watched the ad breaks like other video streaming platforms. In addition, I get a lot of problems with the streaming service. Like the episodes won’t load and it tells me to come back later or refresh. I know it’s not my internet because we just upgraded it to a faster speed and out of all the apps on my phone and TV this is the only one that needs to be refreshed. Lastly, episodes. Episodes on phones can only be watched two at a time. Then you have to go to the series list for the next two episodes, which is inconvenient because of the loading issue mentioned above. I love the shows on this app, but really not worth all the bugs and issues.
Could be way better
by Poshafied! on 2020/03/28 03:19
At first I loved this app then after using it for a awhile I found all the glitches. The time it takes to download a movie and all the buffering makes it difficult to even watch a show or a movie. I pay the extra for no commercials but by the time it buffers 25 times through the movie or show.... I give up. It never used to do this so much but now it’s all the time. I go to the other competition movie app and it doesn’t do it on that app so I know it’s not my internet. Did you get rid of someone that knew what they were doing tech wise??? Also they used to change the movie choices more often and have newer movies, even better that the competition, but now the movies are always the same and all OLD movies and horror film it’s boring and sickening. There used to be more choices, what about PBS, what about getting up to date history channel. I’d like to see some historical dramas and movies!! I pay my fee each month and I’m barely getting good use out of the app. I Really think I’ll discontinue my subscription.
Buffering, Glitches, Selection or Movies and Shows, and ADSS
by Alise Leonardo on 2020/06/06 04:52
Buffering and Glitches• The app has a nice selection of shows and tv shows. But it buffers and glitches A LOT!!! This makes it hard and annoying to watch stuff. It took me 20 minutes to get a movie started. I had to constantly restart the app and exit in and out of the app; to stop the glitches. I’ve checked my WiFi and it works perfectly. You would think with the updates it has they would have already fixed the constant buffering, loading, and glitches. It gets to the point where I can’t, don’t, or want to even bother to use the app. Selection of Movies and Shows• Another problem which isn’t that big is the selection of Movies and Shows. Don’t get me wrong it has an “okay” selection but they don’t update it that much. They don’t have much of the movies or shows I’m looking for. A lot of the shows they have aren’t that popular. I find it hard to not rewatch most of the same stuff. I’ve had this app for a year now and have watched mostly everything I’m interested in. Commercials• The commercials and constant ads in the app make me go CRAZY. There are so many commercials. I just want to watch something without commercials every 10-15 minutes. With all this I recommend Netflix or another app to watch stuff. But if you are looking for a specific show that is anti popular this app probably has it. The app has issues where it gets to the point you don’t want to use it.
Great Content. Terrible layout.
by Raffopat on 2020/05/01 01:47
I love the shows on this platform. But I run in to so many problems with quickly starting where I left off after my previous view sessions. It takes me a minute or two to get back to the episode I was watching, WHICH IS A PROBLEM I DONT INTO WITH ANY OTHER PLATFORMS. Very disappointed with the customer inference & the interaction I have had with it so far. The way the system works causes strain which SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING. I am a very tech savvy person too. But this app makes it 10x more strenuous to operate. Using this app opposed to others is a terrible experience.. The only reason I continue paying for this is because the content is great. I am very disappointed with the customer interface being a new customer. Its 2020, hope you know how to fix it. Sheesh. I’ll be sure to be talking to my friend about this too. Hopefully they get this fixed up soon. Lots of potential. Terrible platform performance so far. Don’t even get me started when I get gypped by watching 2 long adds in a row. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Brand new customer
by Great Speller on 2020/04/20 18:42
Omg, not political ads! I am a brand-new customer. I took advantage of the $0.99 offer for a year. So far I am quite happy with the service except for one thing. I don’t have a problem with the commercials since I knew it would happen due to the offer price. What I don’t like is the same commercials over and over again. It seems like when watching a program with several episodes, there is a repetition of ads which is, quite honestly, not going to get me out there for those products. There are a few older dramas (and probably sitcoms that aren’t already in syndication) that I would like to watch, namely “Cold Case,” “Boston Public,” “Falcon Crest,” and “Picket Fences.” I’m sure that there are more, but I cannot come up with them at this time. I’ll keep watching. The old shows are usually much better than the reality shows like the Kardashians and Real Housewives that are on now.
Choose Wisely
by AidanMcGrath on 2019/09/13 01:26
Whatever you do, pick the plan you want from the get go. Do not try to change your plan after the fact. It doesn’t work. You will have to cancel your subscription and wait for its termination date - one month later. I didn’t think I minded having ads and then it hits you with these gross 70 second ads. I can’t watch those every 5-8 minutes when I’m just trying to enjoy a show. So I tried to change to the Hulu(no ads) plan but it won’t let me until my old plan terminates. So I tried making another account. Didn’t work; it recognizes that you have another account and says, “would you like to sign in with this one?”. When you hit no it doesn’t go through with the new account and if you hit yes, you weren’t making a new account to begin with. I’ve had this app for maybe an hour and already a huge turnoff. 3/5: the video quality was good in the 5-8 minutes I could stand watching. But most everything else is maddening.
Not Accessibility Friendly
by Thorned Rose Royalty on 2020/09/02 06:34
I’ve only had this app for a half an hour and I’m already so frustrated with myself for downloading it. I’m visually impaired, and while this app states that it has audio description it is impossible to use. I can’t find it anyway err on even the shows and movies it states has it, and when I go to the website to change it like it says I should it just gives me a description of what the feature is supposed to do instead of activating it. On this note, there is no way to find your continue watching. Where you can usually find shows and movies you have left off on other apps, this doesn’t have one, and if it does it need to be more easily accessible, even for beginners. It also didn’t save any of my shows/movies I clicked on that I’m interested in watching. Their “My Stuff” which I woul assume to be like Netflix’s “My LIst” only saved two of my shows I clicked on out of my eleven and one of my movies out of the eight. Over, extremely disappointed in the app and myself for having higher hopes in it.
PLEASE FIX, APP WONT OPEN,CRASHES EVERY TIME I OPEN IT!!!!
by Jewel Divine on 2020/04/28 18:24
How strange I write a review but App Store won’t post it‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️😡😡😡😡😡 Ever since latest update of week of April 20th 2020, the app crashes every time I click to open it, it won’t open it closes fast, faster than in the blink of an eye!!! This is a paid subscription that I pay more than $130+ a month for, could the developers please fix this asap!! Why should it be necessary to leave a review and never receive a reply and for it to come this far? Don’t you get paid to supervise the application enough to know there’s this huge bug or glitch whatever it is that it won’t let the PAYING CUSTOMER watch the programming without the unnecessary stress?!?!? Will this issue ever be fixed?!?! Going on a week now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t think you want your customers cancelling, let us know what’s going on, update us I think we have a right to know what’s going on and not be in a loophole!!!!! Way too many ads, I pay for Ad Free TV and it’s way too many repeated ads over again!!!! Kids filter should be updated for safer TV!!!!!!
Latest update crashes instantly
by DjinnAE on 2021/04/24 23:50
Happening again. For a week now the app instantly crashes. Didn’t get any refund last time when it did it for nearly a month. Doubt I’ll get one now. This was my first streaming service but have enough others now that it’s time to delete. The app itself is pretty good. Wide selection. Annoyingly doesn’t have a skip intro feature and when playing picture in picture it won’t immediately load next episode but these are small things. Most recent update has screwed the pooch. Instantly crashes as soon as you open it. Have tried power cycling, deleting app and reinstalling. Please fix. Kind of annoying that subscription apps often take a long time to fix these things (looking at you HBO) but don’t give any refund on their monthly charges. A few days is understandable but it should extend your next billing date. Paying for an unusable service, especially when stuck in isolation with limited options for entertainment is not good.
Several Problems
by Queen1sa on 2020/09/04 15:05
My biggest issue with the app is that certain episodes won’t download. For example, episodes 1-3 of a show might download then 4 will refuse to. For someone who relies primarily on downloads, this is a pain. Also, some episodes are missing entirely from certain shows. This may just be a copyright issue, but with all the other issues this app has, you never know. More recently, I’ve been having a problem where episodes I’ve downloaded won’t play. I end up having to close the app and open it again just to make the episode play. And often it won’t save my progress if I stop in the middle. Finally, when I try to remove things from My List, some shows won’t leave. It says they’re not in there anymore, but they still appear in the feed. Honestly, the only reason I’m giving this app any stars is that I enjoy the content. I would be much happier, however, if they could fix these problems.
Worst streaming app by far
by Ibrad14 on 2018/06/06 12:24
I should not have to login every time I open the app… Even seconds later after I navigate out of it, when I go back it says there was an error and I need to login again. I still do not like how new shows do not always pop up to the front of my queue. There might be a show that I’m just not in the mood to watch and there are a couple of unwatched episodes… And that stays at the top of my queue. That’s fine until something else new or comes along it should bump it down. I was just getting used to the moronic layouts when all of these other things start happening, I thought we’ll maybe it’s because it’s not an updated app. So I cannot hear only time it just update it. Is there no quality assurance checks before and after you get released? Is there no focus group? Is there no research of what other streaming apps are doing and doing well?
Issues with opening my app since the latest UPDATE
by Ebbyrich on 2021/04/21 19:44
My app literally won’t work at all any more doesn’t even go to load it automatically closes out in the same instant I am trying to go in it literally no next screen shows or anything I mostly use it on my phone so it’s a bummer that there’s nothing I can do to get my app to work so here I am trying to get in the right contact with someone for this issue to be fixed I tried everything possible on my end every other network is working perfectly fine on my phone so I know it’s not my device thank you other than this I haven’t had any issues with the app as long as I’ve been using it that’s why I assume it was the latest update cause it didn’t start happening until then
Goodnuf, but want more.
by Guvlem on 2018/11/03 17:10
I like the new layout. It’s easy to see him swipe through things. That said I don’t coming to contact with things that are outside the normal suggestions as often. That’s both good and bad, because I’m not exposed to some of what’s available Biggest concern is that after I’m done playing something the next thing auto plays and adds itself to my keep watching list. There are four things show up on my keep watching list that I don’t even want. I have to keep removing them, and they track my progress. This is a real issue because I’ve never watched these things on my own, and they usually play if I fell asleep or left it running for some reason
Commercial overload
by Retail mobile Detail on 2019/11/28 16:20
I really like the app but two things turn me off about it. The first is that when picking a show they play too many commercials. Once you pick a show they play 90 secs of commercials, then they play the opening credits for your show. Then they play another set of commercials before playing the show. Then they play 2 more sets of commercials during a show that is only 22-25 mins. After the show is over they play another set of commercials before and after closing credits. I know that it is only 90secs but this adds up and makes me disinterested in watching any shows. The other feature I dislike is that when trying to watch “live tv” even when you pick that option they will make you watch the show from the beginning. Then you have to fast forward to live tv, after watching commercials of course.....
Please Either Fix Your App Or Be Truthful
by Hostess40 on 2020/03/15 03:14
Here’s addition to my last comment - we have an Internet speed up to 1 GB and my husband is a programmer/analyst for a living, so we know the issue isn’t on our end. But will you please upgrade your servers so your app doesn’t constantly idle and lose connection. We pay for no commercials but STILL get them ALL the time. Constantly buffering. I’m a teacher so I used to use this for documentaries but now whatever you did I no longer can. Don’t even get me started on your ‘Continue Watching’ section! I have shows I’ve never watched all over it and can never find the shows I ACTUALLY AM WATCHING! And what the hell is it with eliminating episodes after only watching them once?! I started watching a series, one was Nancy Drew, the rest of my family wanted to watch the older episodes to catch up and they’re gone! What the hell! This is a brand new series people! Either fix your dam app or be honest about how you have things set up! Seriously!
Love it but a few problems
by Nuevitas23 on 2021/02/21 17:02
Hi there for people who read this please do download it even if there are a few problems.(and because of what I say) This app is perfect for me because their is a ton of anime and other shows though I do wish they speak English or Spanish because thats what I understand but other then that it is perfect. NOW THEN THE PROBLEMS. Sometimes the adds are way to long and I sometimes have to take breaks for off the phone because of school and then even after the add it sometimes replays and I don’t want that and when I was trying to watch an anime (Fairytale) it said we are having problems please try to refresh your screen and I did but it kept on saying that. Those are all the problems that I have so please try and fix them I will appreciate it thank you bye and have a nice day.
Up next fiasco
by dauhaz on 2019/10/13 05:01
I don’t understand the algorithm behind the episodes listed in “up next”. It is so annoying to have to exit that list and go back to “my stuff” to watch another episode every single time that I cannot give more than two stars. They’re not even in “my stuff”, and why would anyone want to watch random episodes of different shows one after the other instead of watching consecutive episodes of a show? Who does that? But that’s not even the point. I would rather see the new episodes of the shows in “my stuff” in the “up next” list than a bunch of episodes of random shows. For instance, I see the option of adding individual episodes to a list called “my episodes”, which cannot be accessed anywhere. Basically a blackhole. Why not add the episodes in “my episodes” to “up next” and give users the ability to manage the “my episodes” list? Just a thought...
Amazing App
by Cocolattebanana on 2020/08/28 04:00
I find this an amazing app and do not understand why there are so many bad reviews. There are tons of shows to watch of many different genres Cartoons, Dramas, Action, Comedy and so much more. I’m sorry if you didn’t choose the right plan. There have been no troubles for me except one thing for kids I find it annoying that you can’t select a age until 13 my 10 year old can only watch shows for little kids and has been begging me to let her have TV-14 but that has inappropriate content for her. So please please make you be able to do different age ratings for kids under 13 such as TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, and TV-PG. I find this a problem because my daughter can only watch kid shows. I also caught my 4 year old watching sailor moon and I am positive this is not age appropriate for her. PLEASE CHANGE THIS.
SO MANY GLITCHES!
by 🌸❤️❤️🌸❤️❤️🌸 on 2020/05/22 05:03
Great app, but there are a lot of bugs that need to me fixed. First off, the skip, I tried to resume an episode I was watching and every time I would go to skip back to where I was, it would restart the episode. Also, the ad problem needs to be fixed, it keeps playing the ads, then replaying them. Like it would have the ads run as normal, then replay them for no reason. Also there needs to be an easier way to change plans. Skipping is rather annoying as well because every time I skip forward or back it sends me back to where I was! It has even started to black out my screen at certain points in movies and TV shows. I’m very upset about this because all I want to do is watch a show, and it won’t let me! Please fix all of this!
Unable to login
by DlxProGamer999 on 2021/03/17 03:38
The Apple TV app is great, 5-star material, even. There’s basically no problems whatsoever! But, as expected, I’m not talking about the Apple TV app. The mobile app is, quite literally, impossible to use. You’re unable to login to it, no matter what you do (in my case, at least). I’ve tried uninstalling the app, hard resetting my iPhone, and reinstalling it again. I’ve tried turning off the WiFi on my iPhone’s end. I’ve even tried completely restarting my internet from the router itself, yet still no success. After all that, it still greets me with the same message I’ve been getting. “Hmm. Something’s up. Please check your internet settings and try again. If all’s fine on your end, visit our Help.” Everything I’ve tried has been of no use, and I can’t seem to find anyone with a similar issue, nonetheless a potential fix. As of right now, this app is useless; purely a small, admittedly mundane-looking painting on my wallpaper.
New app design terrible
by Unholyfatman on 2017/10/02 06:38
I don't normally take time out day to simply bash apps on iTunes but this new app redesign was so freaking terrible I couldn't get the bad taste out of my mouth so here I am. Tiles really guys seriously and not just tiles poor and restrictive ways to view shows I can't just get a bunch of small icons like before that give me optimal information no I need to thumb through every single tile to see anything well I guess the days of me discovering new shows is over because even browsing your data base is a nightmare so on my iPad Pro 12.9 I see 4 tiles at a time where as before I would see like 20 or more on my old iPad 9.7 inch this is absurd I advise if you do not want to lose people just in the settings simply add a legacy mode switch to the UI so us who aren't mouth breathing idiots can enjoy browsing your selection. Ah I feel a bit better now we'll back to struggling through your terrible UI which will most likely lead to me cancelling my subscription
Wack af when it when it’s not allowed to play commercials
by RabekaGolightly on 2021/02/26 00:25
Ever since I paid for commercials to be off this app it’s so hard to stream on GOOGLE CHROMECAST and my iphone. It’s doesn’t stream well at all. If leave the app on my phone I have reconnect to Chromecast. Whatever I’m watching starts over. Cant fast forward until I close the app three more times while still having to activate streaming to or just watching on my phone because there’s no in picture viewing. If I close the app to take a call or check a text the app closes. Show starts all again. This has been consistent since started paying for no commercials. Idc how many updates y’all have applied they still don’t apply to my issue with this app because I still have issue on my iPhone. Regardless of the fact I have a older mode Chromecast. Every one else’s app works just fine on it accept this one. Literally.
$5.99 for ads and terrible stream quality
by didntlikeit on 2019/09/20 17:02
This app has great content to be able to stream. But I hate that this app has prioritized ads over streaming connection. The app lags out almost 1/5 times I’m trying to watch something after an ad plays. I would say it might me my WiFi or data connection but Netflix doesn’t have this issue at all. All ads play perfectly but the content when streaming times out all the time. I pay $5.99 for tv like experience with all this content and the only real experience I’m getting is ads that I’m apparently paying for. I’m ending my subscription because this company puts advertising over quality of streaming which is what I had hoped to pay for. I don’t mind ads here and there. But I don’t want to watch ads every time because the app crashed on the streaming connection with pop up errors because only ads work. The app never crashes during an advertisement. Why is that?
Please fix....
by Moni.Moore on 2018/09/01 01:06
I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo

I'm the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it's to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your "swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards" function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
Bugs
by AllieH1008 on 2017/09/15 02:07
Every time I try to open the app on my phone, it says "something is wrong: try again." Extremely frustrating. I've tried reinstalling and updating it, and it's the same problem. It won't work. Update: the previous problem has gone away, but with the new update, I accidentally fast forward my show probably about ten times in each sitting somehow. Its extremely easy to do. I end up watching extra commercials because of this, and then when I try to find my spot again, I have to sit through a second set of commercials if I click multiple times looking for the right scene. It adds a LOT of commercials to my viewing time. I also have similar concerns to others reviews, as it used to be easy to find my shows and find new things I'd be interested in, but now it's not as intuitive, and it's more difficult to quickly find things.
Crashes and requires reinstalling after every updates
by hulu-user2 on 2020/07/13 07:35
I always know when there has been an update because the app never fails to crash mid-episode after one. The worse part is that it usually crashes right after a commercial break so when I get the app back up and running and resume the episode I have to sit through another minute of the same commercials. Simply closing the app after an update does not fix the problem. It requires me to delete the app from my device and reinstall. It’s ridiculously inconvenient and annoying. Please fix this. If I didn’t get such a good deal on my subscription, I probably would have cancelled it because of this issue. Besides this inconvenience every two weeks to a month the app does what it needs to do and is easy to navigate.
Well made app for the most part
by JoeFlyer1234 on 2020/07/02 16:46
For a mobile app it’s done quite nice, in my opinion easier and quicker to use than something like the mobile Netflix app. However there are some strange caveats. The app sometimes whites out (on my home screen the app will be there but the logo disappears and I can’t even load the app by clicking on it). This usually resolves itself after a bit. This is the only app I have that exhibits this behavior. Additionally, if you’re watching a show and lose internet connection, especially during an ad, the episode might start from the beginning when you get back to a good connection. It’s happened to me once and I’ll see if it happens again. Other than those two bugs it’s been a pretty smooth experience.
It WAS a good app!
by D-Pill on 2019/10/23 02:35
I’ve been using it for a year now and had no major issues. I pay for the Hulu+live tv and like how I can watch tv on my phone, laptop or actual tv. (Very handy during football and basketball season) Thought ever since it got updated (Sept. 2019) it’s been having major issues. The app completely exits from itself in the middle of a show, or the screen would go dark with a loading bar. Only to pop back up rewinding itself 20 seconds, playing then going dark again. Getting stuck in an annoying endless loop. I really like the app but if that is is the kind of service I’m going to keep having, especially paying $45/month. I might as well go back to my satellite provider. Now I don’t want to sound like I’m ranting but I ACTUALLY like this app and if it doesn’t improve soon, I’m going to have to part ways with it. So for now enjoy the 2 STARS.
You Really Need To Let People Take Screenshots
by Batman Kittyface on 2019/05/04 02:04
Obviously whoever added the feature which makes the screen completely black every time you take a screenshot has little to no experience with the internet. No content pirate has ever thought “ah, yes, i will capture this movie frame by frame and then splice these frames together, then record the audio separately and dub it over my newly spliced video and hope it syncs up”. That’s ludicrous. The inability to take screenshots not only serves no purpose for the actual creators of the movies or TV shows, it’s also a great hinderance to people who produce content like fanart and fan theories who would typically use such screenshots as references. By not allowing screenshots, you are actually turning legitimate customers of your content towards illegal streaming sites because This Is The Only Way To Take Screenshots Of Our Favourite Shows And Movies. No one wins. It’s frankly kind of bizarre that anyone ever thought this was a good idea.
Terrible forward and rewind functionality
by Terrible forward / rewind tool on 2017/10/04 00:53
The latest update rolled out an upgrade to the forward and rewind tool. On the surface it seems like a lot of fun and simple to use, but in practice the new tool is a nightmare. It is incredibly easy to accidentally rewind to the beginning or end of the show simply by tapping the screen when it's gone dark or trying to pull up details on the next episode. You can correct your mistake either because it immediately sends you back into a 60-90 second commercial break that locks the forward / rewind tool. Once you've finished the break and can go back to your place, you have to watch another 60-90 second commercial break to return to your original placement. It's so incredibly frustrating I gave up and went back to the desktop experience. This tool needs more testing and revisions so it's not so easy to trigger.
Inconsistency
by Leek in boat on 2018/10/18 22:12
There is this odd occurrence whenever I use this app and I usually run into a few problems: 1) Sometimes the next episode doesn’t play. It fails to load even if I am connected to the internet, am the only one watching, and have it all paid for. 2) Sometimes, even with good connection, the app doesn’t load up anything. It’ll open but every single tab says there is nothing to see here. 3) In the same vein as failure to load following episodes, there are times where I can’t even watch a completely different show. I could let the inconsistency of following episodes in a series fail to load slide, only a small bit though, but, when I can’t watch anything else for some reason? All of a sudden nothing is watchable? In closing, either shows don’t load or the entire app doesn’t work properly. Inconsistency, sometimes it works really well and then the other half of the time it doesn’t work at all. I have deleted and reinstalled, I have turned off and restarted my phone, I have closed and restarted the app but it still has the same problem. I just end up not watching anything for a bit and do something else; which is great, although, if getting me to do something else was the goal, why pay for an inconsistent service at all?
Doesn’t Like Chromecast
by Dhauxjdkajdjsj4567 on 2021/05/26 05:31
It utterly baffles me how this app can continue to be riddled with glitches in terms of connecting to Google Chromecast. This can’t be an uncommon method of viewing and yet the app cannot maintain connectivity for more than a few moments. And I don’t mean that in the sense of video disconnecting from the TV, but the app as remote quickly loses its ability to function as such. The pause function doesn’t respond on iPhone Lock Screen or on the opened app, and I have to exit out of the app to reconnect to Chromecast. This often results in either the episode starting from the beginning and thus losing my place and/or it repeats the advertisements again that I had just seen instead of resuming the episode. Again, it’s just maddening to me that this is somehow still an issue. Seems an easy thing to fix. I Don’t have this problem with other streaming apps.
Horrible streaming/improved but still issues
by the amazing flying vega on 2020/04/27 17:39
$15 a month for no commercials. Yet my video stops multiple times to tell me, Sorry, an error has occurred while streaming this video. We apologize for any inconvenience. Yeah thanks. It also doesn't resume videos from all devices. Save your money and skip unless you're desperate. Update: streaming is better now but there are still issues with the app. It’s constantly disconnecting from my phone. It still plays on the tv but I have reconnected to pause etc. other super annoying thing, once you’re show is finished it auto plays suggested shows not in your queue. This is super annoying when it’s a show you don’t want to watch. It used to skip to something in your queue which makes sense. Suggested shows should be somewhere else.
Need to make it more compatible with iPhone X
by wen_d_ta on 2017/12/16 19:01
Besides everyone’s concern about the sensitivity on the rewind and forward, which I agree is soooooo frustrating, I just got the iPhone X and some shows don’t take up the full screen of the phone which is the whole point of the phone! The shows need to expand through the whole screen. also it would be very helpful if they could but the time as well on the iPhone 7 when you tapped of the screen you would see the time come down and now I have to click out of the app to see what time it is and that’s frustrating as well... I know it’s a process and you’re trying i hope my suggestions help!
Disorganized
by Rebel Ghost on 2018/10/24 21:23
The constant changes to the layout just screams lack of confidence in the product and makes it very difficult to navigate. Please do something about the subpar subtitles do you actually watch and listen to the stories or are you just writing what you want. Fast forwarding and rewinding needs to be adjusted there’s nothing more frustrating then that suspenseful reveal that rolls right into commercial and you try to roll back a few seconds but have to watch another set of commercials. Very frustrating when you have to stop your device mid show only to come back to your place not saved and your going back and forth in the time line to find your spot only to have to watch two to three sets of commercials (I get that this service includes commercials but it’s the navigation that’s frustrating). Don’t be racist the stereotyping and picking what commercials you think I should watch is insulting.
Read this please
by advcgcdxc on 2021/05/19 02:23
Im pretty sure that y’all heard of a show called Steven Universe amazing show one of my favorite cartoons but anyways, this is the thing there are 4 seasons and the full amount of seasons are 6 and I have bin waiting so long for y’all to finally complete the seasons, but it’s almost like y’all completely forgot about it and maybe this can remind you to remember that y’all still haven’t finished uploading episodes of it, and I’m aware that you guys have other shows that you have to finish uploading but, you know it’s bin so long sense you ever uploaded any Steven Universe episodes, so I hope this got your attention and maybe soon or later y’all can finally fish uploading this show it would really make my day, please and thank you for your time.
Autoplay Not Working!!!
by Kdove98 on 2019/08/09 03:02
Autoplay is not working and randomly stops one episode in while other times the thing will play all night long when I fall asleep. The app is poorly designed and simple features like the ability to skip credit scenes and title sequences are missing yet the price is still the same NFlix. Why do you have to pay for a headache? How can this company not build an app properly? You have billions of dollars. Last time I canceled because the app was falling apart and riddled with error messages that even uninstalling couldn’t fix on my phone and tablet. And they have no appropriate customer service. You guys have no respect for your customers and that’s why you’ll always be second or simply lose them over time to better streaming services. Maybe I’ll just cancel every other month and keep signing up for the free first month option so I can cheat you as much as you’re cheating me.
Good! But, a few issues
by Anon.2018 on 2018/10/31 13:30
I do not like the user interface set up all that much. For example, let’s say I just watched a series. I close app then re-open it at a later time. I expect to have that series somewhere on my dashboard but it’s not. In fact I typically have to retype it in the search box just to find it again. Second, I’m watching a show and I click to go to new episode; however, the GUI is gone! No play, backwards, forward, pause, scroll bar...nothing but an “X.” I contacted IT support and they didn’t know anything. So, it’s typical that I’ll have to refresh the page or log out and log in five to fifteen times over a few hours. But, in the end for the price and volume of shows it’s worth putting up with the glitches.
Good app, one complaint
by DenaInNC on 2021/04/09 04:32
I like the app most of the time. It works well, streams well, and is fairly intuitive. My complaint is that in the last few updates, it has gone back and forth in allowing me to “watch” shows minimized while doing other things, and then not. The same app has pretty much always allowed it on my iPad. I enjoy that option. It is nice to multitask (i.e. check weather, reply to texts, read an email) without having to interrupt my live viewing experience. Unfortunately, it has come and gone repeatedly with the last few updates. If everyone doesn’t like it, at least make it an option in the settings/profile for the app.
Can’t play in background
by Dragon vale man on 2017/11/21 05:01
I’m not going to say the new update is terrible because I honestly don’t think it is. I however have been annoyed at the fact that the tv shows can not be played in the background on the device. Normally people will listen to music as they use their device. However, for me that is tv shows. Because I have watched this particular show so much I don’t need to physically see it anymore, I have it playing in the background. Like another reviewer said, no one should be expected to stay glued to a show for an extended amount of time. That user wanted PIP and his PIP was revived. Last night even I was able to play in the background starting Saturday the 18th and ending the 19th. Please bring this back or install it if what I was experiencing was a bug. Thank you for you time.

Just switched from sling last weekend so my rating is based on limited experience... So far I’ve found navigating the apps (on my fire stick and the iOS mobile app) to be cumbersome. The live tv controls are nothing like any cable, satellite, or other streaming tv options I have used... the guide is not good and only has next episodes as far future viewing so you have to search if you looking to record something. And going in and out of the guide and watching live tv is nothing short of frustrating to this point. I’m sure it will get easier with repetition but really... my wife will never have it down. And then there’s the no AMC or Paramount channels. The good thing is I can cancel at any time and there is a lot of content so hopefully they can improve the TV guide soon!
