Live TV not working
by McArth on 2020/08/09 03:43
Will not connect to live tv on any of my devices. When I'm home or away. When I'm away it says to log into the app at home but when I do it still won't play live tv. Perfect timing with sports finally coming back. Thanks for nothing hulu.

Why did they update it and make it harder to see titles ?
by ashsells on 2020/08/09 01:39
They updated the layout so now only a fraction of titles are available to view. More scrolling, more frustrating time fumbling through movies and tv shows. Why did they update something that did not need updating. It’s like companies are so disconnected from USER INTERFACE that they make dumb decisions like the update. Please revert back or give us the option
Fix it please
by B DuB1600 on 2020/08/09 01:39

You know I used to really like Hulu but the way they have changed the menu options and everything else it don’t seem like they have half of the movies and shows they had or they make it so hard you can’t find them what a joke. Had this subscription for years and am about to cancel would not recommend to anyone

Terrible Service
by Luv Richmond on 2020/08/08 20:53
Joined after YouTube TV raised its price. Hulu never worked on Apple TV. Failed to load most times and can only watch in one location when using it on a tv. Many times the app on Apple TV was fuzzy. After 3 weeks I cancelled. Hulu wouldn’t give a refund. I went back to YouTube TV. Guess you get what you pay for.
To many ads
by alphawolf2354 on 2020/08/08 20:47
Ok I like this app, but there are wayyyy to many ads and the ads are so long. I will be watching my show and then a 90 second ad will come on and it is really annoying. Please take the ads away, or at least make less ads come on. There are about 10 ads through the whole show! It is quite annoying. Please fix this.
Netflix should buy Hulu already
by jkinsx3 on 2020/08/08 18:41
Why is Hulu so horrible? Why whenever I start any show, I lose track of where I am? Why when I pause a show in the middle, does it just skip to the next episode when I restart the program instead of leaving where I left off? And them when it does start on the episode I was actually on (VERY RARE) why does it rewind 20 minutes on a 40 minute show??? NETFLIX should own you. NETFLIX is by far superior in every single way (#no commercials) you should really just sell to netflix if you haven’t figured your stuff out STILL.
Cast Not Working

Anime
by COOLCOOLCOOL5000 on 2020/08/08 17:41
I LOVE THIS APP. But it’s fine if u add a anime and make a dub version but Plz make the whole anime in dub too like naruto shippuden for example it litterely has only 3 season with dub then the rest is sub I’ve seen naruto and I’m on shippuden but I got really angry when I finished season 3 and the rest was in dub. SO PLEASE MAKE THE WHOLE ANIME DUBBED BEFORE U MAKE A ANIME WITH DUB AND SUB PLZ IT WOULD BE REALLY NICE.
I love it

by Nickname58263859264 on 2020/08/08 11:33
This new update didn’t fix any of the error screens or just buggy playing. I primarily watch this on my iPhone 11. I expect this app to work flawlessly especially from a streaming company. It works like a third world app.

Cheaper than youtube tv but much much worse
by GiphyRulez on 2020/08/07 19:31
I really hate the UX of hulu live tv, whoever decided to default to recent channels needs to rethink this. My wife and I keep thinking we only have a handful of channels only to realize it’s just the stupid interface... so many taps just to get to a channel. The dvr is also a really bad experience, I dont consider it DVR at all but more on demand. I think we will bite the bullet and cancel and go back to Youtube tv, it’s pricey but just a much improved user experience and much easier to just channel surf. Also using hulu on the ipad is annoying because it keeps zooming in on the image. I dont want a cropped image ever, that’s as bad as having soap opera (frame interpolation) mode turned on your tv.
Cancelling is a nightmare.

There a way to meet you as every time and watching a show or anime I get in between three and four as every episode some ads are over a minute some ads are A minute 30 seconds in with the basic subscription plan I only can watch certain shows I can’t watch my favorite show the boondocks because it’s locked this is the same for many other shows an anime that I can’t watch including movies also who has a better selection of movies
Content is good, app is crap
by MattMull on 2020/08/07 16:55
I use all of the major streaming services on my phone and Hulu is by far the worst. Constantly lagging, crashing, or taking ages to load.
Ads
by Forces117 on 2020/08/07 16:27
There are just too many ads. Like before the episode or movie starts I expect a few ads. That’s normal. But they do at least 5 long ads almost every time. Then in the middle of some of the series I watch’s episodes there will be 5 more ad breaks though out the whole thing. But other than that, love this!
I hope you enjoy long long commercials...
by Luke1755 on 2020/08/07 12:56
Do you remember a time before the VCR? I don't, but that's what I got to experience with Hulu Live. You can't fast forward the commercials of the programs on your DVR, so for every twenty minutes of programming you watch about five minutes of commercials! 🤬 If you want the premium edition of the non live, same situation, tons of ads. If you get the top subscription, you will watch OVER FIVE MINUTES of commercials for every episode of How I Met Your Mother. Complete. And. Utter. Garbage. Get literally any other streaming service.
Getting sloppy
by Mbroke on 2020/08/07 12:00
Was very reliable a year ago but now it’s getting buggy. The app won’t let me watch live tv unless I open it at home. I’m at home and doesn’t work. They are trying to find a way to stop sharing of passwords. I’m not sharing! I left Sling to because it was buggy. Now where to go? hmmmm...
Volume
by Nomnomnom157! on 2020/08/07 08:49
I really love the choices and variety and not many commercials. Only annoyance is the commercials are super loud and always have to turn up the volume for the show.

FIX YOUR SUBTITLES
by AlloyGunner on 2020/08/07 05:56
First you rip people off with having to pay for a service and then you make them pay more for no ads? Seriously?! But that’s not the main issue. The subtitles are absolutely horrible. I’m trying to watch burn notice but they are all over the place and most of the time miss important dialogue and there’s a lot of spelling errors.
by moon.light.3 on 2020/08/07 04:53

Not what I paid for
by HFOX05 on 2020/08/07 03:42
I did not pay for poorly timed and irrelevant commercials that repeat themselves every time. Especially ones that are in SPANISH. My language settings are on ENGLISH. If I spoke Spanish I’d have them set to Spanish, but they’re set to ENGLISH. Overall this doesn’t even have very much more than Netflix and commercials on top of that make it worse. Don’t waist your money on this cheap third world attempt at entertainment.
App won’t load majority of the time
by wildbroncgirl on 2020/08/07 02:50
Okay the developers on this really designed a poor app. Search function is sloppy and limited and several times a week I have to delete the app and reinstall it. I guess you guys never heard of beta testing and continual improvements? No. Why do that?
Needs auto play
by Yolanda Nickname on 2020/08/07 02:23
The app works well but I just wish once I select the next episode in the top left that it would start playing it and not make me press play every time. Kinda ruins bingeing shows.

Pay for repeated ads
by mikesalad on 2020/08/07 01:19
Buy Hulu if you’d like to watch repeated ads. I currently pay for my subscription and am thinking about cancelling due to this. There’s been times where ads have been repeated FOUR TIMES.

One problem
by Lil_pizookie on 2020/08/06 20:28
I love The App It’s super useful! But one problem, I’m a Weeb so I like to watch anime, I’m from Arizona and I speak English and so I watch dubbed anime. So when I saw the dubbed episodes I got super excited, but the anime I really wanna watch diabolik lovers is all subtitles and they go to fast for me to read, and I know there’s a dubbed version cause my friends played it. So could you please put out dubbed anime series’s it would really help if you did!
Disappointed of Hulu
by Mario MG Power on 2020/08/06 17:23
The best series are all conveniently ABSENT from Hulu, along with almost every episode 1 of each season... if you want to start watching a series that a friend recommends you can only see the las season.. which doesn’t make sense. Clearly Hulu is too CHEAP to pay for the best episodes (all the ones you remember!). Hulu, either buy the COMPLETE ENTIRE series or don't buy/stream it all... Waste of money depending on a service that gives you "fake" access to shows without all the best episodes!! These kind of shady practices should be illegal. So unethical. HULU when you first sign up for it has an algorithm thats provides you with its best service which is subpar but better than what you get later on which is No chance to watch because it boots you constantly or just will not work at all. This is how they keep control of their way overworked server, so when you call to complain they put you back on good service for a limited amount of time of course while slowing back, scrambling, or haulting others peoples service. Again it keeps control over their way undersized server crashing. Do you want to be treated that way paying for something. I DO NOT.
Keeps freezing on start up
by djOdaddy on 2020/08/06 11:12
It seems like every third time the app will freeze on the Hulu screen. I have to quit the app and restart. It’s not a huge issue but annoying. Happens on both iPhone and iPad. Sometimes recorded shows do not show up until hours later. Other times when I delete recorded shows they show back up. If I start watching a recorded show that is in progress the app will freeze or crash when the live program ends. Overall pretty happy with the app otherwise.

It has too many ads. I mean its ok to have some ads but this is just crazy. It has ads every 5 minutes it drives me nuts. I know im not paying for the no ads plan but i feel like im paying to see the same ads over and over every five to eight minutes. That’s insane!

by Zakia28 on 2020/08/06 05:48
it's okay, i guess it has a large variety of things to watch but it has WAY to many ads, like especially for something I have to pay for, not even youtube has that many ads and it's free. it would be different if the ads were short but they're like 80 second ads every 10 minutes in an hour long show. i pay for Netflix, Disney plus, hbo max, and none of them have ads simply because i'm already paying for the app why would i pay for something just to be watching ads the whole time
Fine on Apple TV. Trash on iPhone.
by Seattle Southpaw on 2020/08/06 05:06
Despite Hulu Live continually charging more month-after-month, the live TV service has deteriorated in both service and user interface. I primarily use Hulu Live on my Apple TV, and I frequently use the iPhone app to search for TV shows. I’ll stand 6-8’ from my Apple TV, on the same home WiFi that Hulu Live uses to send content to my Apple TV, and Hulu blocks me from live TV on my iPhone with this snide message about me not being home and in the same location as what’s listed on my Hulu Live account. I’m home. Same IP address. Same subnet. Same mailing address. And the only button you can press says “GOT IT.” No, I don’t “GOT IT.” I’m paying cable prices for a cord cutting live TV service that blocks me when I’m trying to access that same subscription service on my iPhone from the same address as my Apple TV. Why shouldn’t I go with Sling or another alternative? Hulu Live is basically a delicate and unfinished product that has been sent prematurely into the wild. It’s buggy. It’s temperamental. It’s hard to navigate. I used to tolerate that, because of the lower price, but it’s no longer worth it.
Glitchy and impossible to sign in
by user132642 on 2020/08/06 05:02
Upgraded to the bundle from my Disney+. Hulu websites glitches every time I attempt to “sign up” for an account I’ve already paid for. From my phone, laptop, and xbox, absolutely unusable.
Latest update ruined subtitles
by logrud on 2020/08/06 04:09
After the latest update none of the subtitles are available to me on any of the shows. Bad business for hearing impaired customer.
Not great
by mrpepper98 on 2020/08/06 02:41
Hulu has some great original and licensed content but this app is the worst. If you’re on the fence between Hulu and Netflix get Netflix just because of Hulu’s lousy app. Restarts whatever episode you’re watching when you open it. Throw the ads in and it’s a jarring user experience. Honestly, screw them for collecting money for seamless service, while failing to provide it and somehow also being the only service that hasn’t figured out how to operate without ads. Move over losers.
Allow me to manage which profile links to my google assistant
by janjroo on 2020/08/06 02:08
Once you do, I’ll switch this to 5 stars. Right now, it links to the first profile in the account. But I’m the 3rd profile on the account, so I’m at a different point in the show than profile #1.
30 days to watch tv???
by HUNTERSTREETFAN on 2020/08/06 01:55

by lalarari on 2020/08/06 00:54
The quantity of ads is ridiculous. 3-5 commercials every 5 minutes. And the price just to not have ads?? It doubles. Don't worry. I canceled. I don't have the time for all those ads when I'm off and want to wind down go to bed after a 12-16 hr shift at the hospital just to get ads.

Good luck, it’s impossible
This app is the worst
by Stpetefan69 on 2020/08/06 00:20
Fix this thing or I’m going to cancel. I have to delete it and download it again every time I use it!
Couldn’t hate the new layout more if I tried
by sdmbcp on 2020/08/05 23:55
I have been saying forever that I liked Hulu better than Amazon prime and Netflix because of the user-friendly interface they had. Now, this new look is just like Amazon prime and Netflix, and I can’t stand it. Please please change it back!!!! Otherwise, I appreciate that they have all of my old 90s and early 2000’s TV shows. Now if they could fix the issue of the shows picking up where they were left off previously, instead of sometimes 5 or 10 minutes in the past, that would be nice too
Wow Naruto shippuden there is no dub scam!

I was watching Naruto shippuden and now there is no dub!
Least reliable
by Kaorovic on 2020/08/05 22:38
We have Amazon, Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu. We had a sling and dropped it in favor of Hulu because Hulu is supposed to have more channels. Of the five, Hulu is the least reliable. The slightest wobble in the Internet and you have to completely restart the app if not the device. Instead of constantly re-designing the layout maybe they should work on reliability.
Live Streaming does not work
by PDX Ron on 2020/08/05 22:33
Used to work well but with the revised app, we can’t access the Live content that we’re paying for. Oddly enough, when we try to cancel our subscription, that feature also does not work. Stick with cable.
ads :(
by :> Evie Magic Mirrior on 2020/08/05 21:35
I HATE ADS Please just make 1 25 sec ad PLEASEEEEE
Horribly designed app
by Flatcat1 on 2020/08/05 21:34
This is one of the worst apps I’ve used, nothing intuitive about it. Good luck setting up a favorites list of live channels on the menu. Right now I can’t even access the live menu.
I will be canceling hulu.
by chris and marylee on 2020/08/05 21:32
Change it all up to we’re u can’t find nothing. Netflix style so we will be going to something else. I’ve loved it the last few years. But now I can’t even go to my news with out going and searching for it.
The ads are way too long
by wolf and s on 2020/08/05 19:43
I love Hulu and I love watching anime but Hulu has way too many ad breaks like one right after a preview and intro and making it 90 seconds like cmon maybe do like two 15 second ads and make it a good place ment
My review
by imabeastok on 2020/08/05 19:25
I like Hulu a lot but it doesn’t let me put my anime to English and it has ads
Hulu

Subtitle & Crash
by sweetrebekah on 2020/08/05 05:31
I can’t find subtitles change font color and background. Every time I close Hulu app it always says oops refresh i have to log out and log back in every time I open app. Please fix it. Ty.
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!!!!
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?
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!
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...
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!
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
Newest update causes more problems
by lpr2012 on 2019/10/22 00:16
Update: Down to one star. - Resume now never works. It always starts the episode back at the start, even on the same device. The thumbnail will show something like 70%, say “Resume,” but tapping will just start at the network logo and you get to scrub to try and find your spot. - Crashes in the background on TV OS every time it’s launched. - When you have Live TV with no commercials, about 50% of the time, the system will play the live on-demand version of a show instead of the no commercials version. Killing the app and restarting will re-roll for you. Update: New regressions. Do you all need help testing basics? - If you stop a show mid-stride, coming back to the interface shows the “resume” button and a progress bar at the right place. Tapping resume starts the show over. Happens about 90% of the time on TV and iPhone/iPad apps. The update again causes more usability bugs. - Links from the TV app no longer work again, and watch percentage is no longer updated back. Happens about 20% of the time. - Resume function no longer works. Stopping a video and resuming it later on Apple TV causes the video to start at the beginning about 50% of the time. Seems to work fine on iPad and iPhone. - App crashes when video is paused and the screen saver comes on or the screen locks. Happens about 30% of the time.
$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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Not showing watched
by Michellepizzalover on 2018/11/25 03:02
Many times, I finish an episode with less than a minute left and when I go back to the menu, it says resume episode, then restarts episode. I don’t want to watch it again, I just watched it. I want it to show that I watched it so it is not sitting at the top of my stuff like it is new. Sometimes I will restart the episode, fast forward to the end, then wait for the time to get down to 0 so that hopefully the episode will show as watched, which it doesn’t always do. There are currently 3 shows that I have completely watched, but say resume episode and I don’t know how to get it to acknowledge that I watched it. There must be an easier way! It’s bothersome.
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.
Inconsistency

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?
UI suggestions....
by Adam H.. on 2019/11/20 04:42
I can’t say anything about commercials and switching plans because I already have the Ad free version and I have live tv in other means, but, during playback, PLEASE... Make the swipe to rewind/fast forward inactive until one swipes up enough first, or some other gesture to reduce unintentional swipes. I can’t tell you how many times I mess up the playback position while trying to pick up my one iPad without a case or cover because I tap the screen edge then bump the slider significantly. Make the video not pause when going from Picture in Picture back to full screen if it’s already playing. The whole point of going full screen is to continue viewing on the full screen. I know it can be done...competitor apps do it.
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.
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.
Apply TV app is horrendous
by nathanalf on 2017/10/06 16:44
I honestly don’t even know where to begin. All the complaints below apply to the Apple TV app as that is the primary way I use it, and I can’t speak to the iPhone / iPad versions. Half the time clicking on a title does nothing, especially in the “up next” pop up when an episode ends, and if you let the timer run down it replays the episode you just watched instead of skipping to the next one. Half the time when you do play an episode either the sound is a second off from the video (only fix is force quitting the app). Also have had the video appear not the play, click to play again and now two streams of the same episode are playing (one on top of the other) resulting in double audio - and the only fix is force quitting the app. I swear half of the time I use this app it is force quitting the app and waiting for it to reload. Navigation is a HOT mess. Where are the simple badges saying which shows have a new episode available? Why is the “my stuff” category not available to filter by new episodes available? Why do I need to wait for the app to “fetch new recommendations” every single time I open it up? I love love LOVE hulu’s service, and in the past the app has been very solid. However once this redesign rolled out I feel like the quality / reliability of the app has greatly suffered.
Better mobile experience than on home TV
by nicki names on 2019/07/03 20:03
The mobile app is pretty good. Navigation is thoughtful and fairly well-organized. The mobile app also allows you to immediately press an icon in the center of the screen to go straight to the live broadcast instead of starting at the beginning for shows in your recording list. For some strange reason, that button is missing in the Fire tv version of the app. As a result, I have to manually hold the right button to fast forward to get to the live stream. Annoying, and particularly confusing for my elderly relatives who wonder why the show is not live and on a delay. This needs to be more like navigating and consuming on a cable provider (can’t believe I just said that).
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!
Where are all the seasons at???
by PotatoeKing on 2018/03/28 21:10
I'm very disappointed with the fact that almost all the shows you have never finish the show. They're always missing seasons unless it's a 1/2 season show! This is very dumb not only because we cannot finish our show BUT shouldn't all those ads you put in the middle of our shows make you enough money to give us a full series??!!!! This is very annoying. For example one of my shows had to end on an episode where there is still so much story to be told, but I could not experience this show because of this terrible idea. This is ABSOLUETLY outrageous considering we're supposed to be able to "catch up on all our favorite shows". This slogan is a HUGE LIE. If you want an app where you can stop watching in the middle of a plot on a show BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T SPEND SOME OF ALL THAT MONEY THEY MAKE GIVING US SOME GOSH DARN ENDINGS TO FINISH OUR SHOWS!!!!!😡
The worst app I’ve ever used
by CkBailey8816 on 2020/08/04 02:47
Seriously where do I start with how garbage this app is both on my computer and phone. I honestly hate this app with a passion which is the only reason I’m writing this review. It will start playing randomly when you leave it open. Just logged me off for no reason whatsoever. Terrible interface when selecting shows or trying to find the show you were previously watching. I guess you have to log in ever 30 days just to still get live TV WHICH IS SOMETHING I PAY EXTRA FOR ALREADY. There is no way to switch between live shows like just pressing a ‘last’ button. If you skip around a show because the app sometimes doesn’t save your place it’ll make you rewatch commercials you just saw. Truly one of the worst apps I’ve ever used which is hard to do. Especially coming from such a major company. If I didn’t pay for the service I would get rid of it in a heartbeat.
It’s awesome but has some cons
by hedeejejbcdh on 2020/06/15 02:33
Ok this app is amazing but here are some cons a lot of the time when I press on the app it just turns off and I tried powering off my phone two times it still didn’t work :( and it sometimes turns off while I’m trying to watch a show and when I go back on it. It also rewinds a bit :(also it needs to add season 2 of 911 :( because if you try watching season 3 with out watching season 2 you will be completely lost:( also sometimes it puts me on a different spot on a episode of a show than where I was on that episode :( but I do like all the variety of shows and movies it has :) although I talked a lot of bad on this review it overall is a amazing at app! And these are just my opinions :3
Giving 5 because many fixes have been done
by Fantasticallyella on 2018/09/21 20:25
Firstly, it’s 5 to try and help weigh in against all the people who complained about losing HDMI because it’s been fixed. And on that note thank god the HDMI lightning connector works again. There was no way I was gonna budge and spring for additional technology when I’m broke A/F all the time. The overall selection seems to be getting more bunk. Maybe start adopting shows like The Last Man on Earth as Netflix has done with Arrested Development for example. That being said I still find shows on here worth the amount I pay for the subscription. Smoothish transitions from episode to episode. I think the forward / backward 10 and 30 seconds is odd I’m used to the 1:1 that most video players use. Lastly I think the selection screen - at least on a mobile device - is too large and requires too much scrolling. Again comparing to Netflix, while browsing you can view several show title cards and multiple categories at once. For the regular streamers that’s great when I’m trying to just generally peruse highlighted shows.
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!
Great live TV, not the best navigation
by nickgreene25 on 2018/10/24 01:14
It’s a bulky interface that requires too many clicks to achieve what your looking for. This has been a great alternative to Cable, and we’re happy with the quality of streaming, but the guide and actions are not very simple. Would be easier if there are options to go straight to live TV at startup rather than having to go from main menu every time. Better sorting options for the guide would be nice too, like maybe having a favorites sections. They have “news” and “sports” channel guides, but often times they leave off channels that it might not deem in those categories, even if it is. Just needs a little refining for a better experience, but overall it’s better than paying for cable.
Needs a fix but good
by Lugubrinilily on 2019/12/01 20:00
I love the app. Easy interface with a great selection but, commercials please fix them, I’m okay with the breaks and it makes sense but why another set of commercials just because I rewinded it 10 seconds? It doesn’t make sense, it should skip passed them since I already watched them I shouldn’t be penalized for wanting to replay a part of the show. Is there a wider variety of commercials also? I seem to always get the same ones. Another thing that really really needs fixing is the buffering icon in the middle of the screen when watching on my laptop, if I so as rewind a few seconds back it will stay in the middle of the screen and my only option to get rid of it is to reload the page, not only does that not continue where I left off but it’s could also be susceptible to ANOTHER COMMERCIAL BREAK. Please fix
Random issues with no pattern
by roegner on 2019/05/28 19:06
So I need subtitles, but sometimes when a commercial break is over the subtitles will randomly stop working. Now the audio cut out completely for no apparent reason. I think it’s also very irritating when I open or slide into my notifications screen or quick settings screen that the show I’m watching won’t play in the background, and just pause automatically. Furthermore, it is astonishingly annoying how if I slightly move or tap something on screen that my video will slide away. I feel like there should be an arrow specifically for minimizing the video, instead of relying on everything to slide. Lastly, if I slide out of a video for just a few seconds, I shouldn’t have to watch 90 seconds of commercials all over again to just continue my show. Please resolve these issues, thank you.
Five stars EXCEPT
by 👍🏼💪🏼👌🏼 on 2018/09/25 08:48
Five stars...Except the latest update. instead of the movie just automatically switching to horizontal view when you push play, it stays small and brings up the list of shows you’ve watched previously/are in the middle of. Why would I want to see those while I’m watching a show? They take up over half the screen.... It’s stupid and annoying that I have to click a million buttons just to get it to full screen. And half the time the full screen button doesn’t work cause it’s so small the heat from my finger bypasses it and just makes the play/pause/full screen options disappear—so then I have to tap it again.
What the hell
by Marshire on 2017/11/22 11:51
So, I’m one of those people that likes to rewind on my favorite scene. So, I loved it when more streaming services added the fast forward and rewind ten seconds buttons. However, is there any reason that they need to be in the middle of the screen blocking everything? Does the screen need to be dimmed when it does this? Short answer. NO. What worse is when when your pausing or using the 10sec but and hit anywhere else on the screen, either to close the dimming or by accident, the show will skip to wherever you touched. Dudes that’s what the bar at the bottom is for. You tried to make something more convenient and instead made it aggravating as hell. Literally just had the show start over twice because of this idiotic feature and I wouldn’t let me skip the tv shows channel thing that before. So, I ended up watching it three times. Seriously, not useful at all.
Awful
by zhansen06 on 2017/09/14 00:18
The old app worked fine but was very clunky. I didn't think an update could be this bad. This app is difficult to use and is not intuitive at all. Oftentimes it errors out when playing the next episode of a show, forcing me to grab a device and attempt to play it again. I really just cannot stand the way this app is organized now. Sure, it's pretty, but the "Home" tab lists a SINGLE show. Across an entire iPad display. A complete waste of screen real estate. "My stuff" tab shows a list of your shows that you enjoy watching but it is organized in a complete non-categorical way. Very frustrating. Finally when you search for a show you want to watch (the best and easiest way to find anything, given this app's poor design), you have two small boxes with the last episode you left off on, and the latest episode. Once again, poor use of a huge iPad screen. You have tabs at the top for "episodes", but unless you know better, "seasons" is buried inside there as a small link. Constructive feedback? I suppose change "episodes" into a "seasons" button or something of the sort. However this won't change the overall design of the app being so poor and the waste of screen space. The old app was very old and also very clunky, BUT at least it was laid out logically.
Anyone else disappointed with new update?
by Mooveychick on 2018/05/12 02:19
Just curious if anybody else is having trouble with the new update. There have been many times that I’ve been watching a show on my iPad, then all of a sudden it stops and an error message comes up saying I can’t watch the show in my region. I’m in the United States people! And then I try other shows and it gives me that same message. I’m also having trouble with the show playing and then all of a sudden it jumps back to the very beginning where the television network logo comes up and then it will jump back to where I was watching. I don’t know what’s going on. It was working fine prior to this update
App is good but few problems
by yurr123 on 2020/04/24 08:32
The fast forward and rewind should be 10 seconds. when you are watching a show and you want to take a break it should go to my stuff so you can watch it later or resume where you left off. you have the live tv option the bottom of your screen in between my stuff and search. Also you should have a section for stuff that will come out soon so people can have notifications if they like it so when it comes out they could watch it. You should also make it easy for customers to change their plan if they want to in the account section because it is very annoying to have to go from the app to the website.

Why did they update it and make it harder to see titles ?
by ashsells on 2020/08/09 01:39
They updated the layout so now only a fraction of titles are available to view. More scrolling, more frustrating time fumbling through movies and tv shows. Why did they update something that did not need updating. It’s like companies are so disconnected from USER INTERFACE that they make dumb decisions like the update. Please revert back or give us the option
Fix it please
by B DuB1600 on 2020/08/09 01:39

You know I used to really like Hulu but the way they have changed the menu options and everything else it don’t seem like they have half of the movies and shows they had or they make it so hard you can’t find them what a joke. Had this subscription for years and am about to cancel would not recommend to anyone
Junk junk junk

Hulu is basically paid version of free YouTube. You pay money to hulu for watching free content. Bad !!!!
Terrible Service
by Luv Richmond on 2020/08/08 20:53
Joined after YouTube TV raised its price. Hulu never worked on Apple TV. Failed to load most times and can only watch in one location when using it on a tv. Many times the app on Apple TV was fuzzy. After 3 weeks I cancelled. Hulu wouldn’t give a refund. I went back to YouTube TV. Guess you get what you pay for.
To many ads
by alphawolf2354 on 2020/08/08 20:47
Ok I like this app, but there are wayyyy to many ads and the ads are so long. I will be watching my show and then a 90 second ad will come on and it is really annoying. Please take the ads away, or at least make less ads come on. There are about 10 ads through the whole show! It is quite annoying. Please fix this.
Netflix should buy Hulu already
by jkinsx3 on 2020/08/08 18:41
Why is Hulu so horrible? Why whenever I start any show, I lose track of where I am? Why when I pause a show in the middle, does it just skip to the next episode when I restart the program instead of leaving where I left off? And them when it does start on the episode I was actually on (VERY RARE) why does it rewind 20 minutes on a 40 minute show??? NETFLIX should own you. NETFLIX is by far superior in every single way (#no commercials) you should really just sell to netflix if you haven’t figured your stuff out STILL.

The app has been unable to cast to my smart tv for over a month.
Anime
by COOLCOOLCOOL5000 on 2020/08/08 17:41
I LOVE THIS APP. But it’s fine if u add a anime and make a dub version but Plz make the whole anime in dub too like naruto shippuden for example it litterely has only 3 season with dub then the rest is sub I’ve seen naruto and I’m on shippuden but I got really angry when I finished season 3 and the rest was in dub. SO PLEASE MAKE THE WHOLE ANIME DUBBED BEFORE U MAKE A ANIME WITH DUB AND SUB PLZ IT WOULD BE REALLY NICE.
I love it

by Nickname58263859264 on 2020/08/08 11:33
This new update didn’t fix any of the error screens or just buggy playing. I primarily watch this on my iPhone 11. I expect this app to work flawlessly especially from a streaming company. It works like a third world app.

App is glitchy and it’s annoying. Their DVR didn’t record shows I wanted. I like Hulu’s pricing but their app needs work. I had to switch back to YouTube TV.
Problem with location
by Sad Celestial on 2020/08/08 03:33
Despite trying several “fixes” the stupid app can never find my location so I can’t use it on my iPad.

The app has been really crappy lately wont continue watching where you left off if you close the app and sometimes it just doesn’t play shows at all I literally deleted and re downloaded this app 4 times in one day alone

I hate changes every time when there’s are new changes you’re always ruins everything I hate changes I would stay the same whoever update both Hulu and crunchroll are idiot and nothing more than a bastard! And If any of you don’t change it back i’m gonna make sure I sue all of you!!!
Cheaper than youtube tv but much much worse
by GiphyRulez on 2020/08/07 19:31
I really hate the UX of hulu live tv, whoever decided to default to recent channels needs to rethink this. My wife and I keep thinking we only have a handful of channels only to realize it’s just the stupid interface... so many taps just to get to a channel. The dvr is also a really bad experience, I dont consider it DVR at all but more on demand. I think we will bite the bullet and cancel and go back to Youtube tv, it’s pricey but just a much improved user experience and much easier to just channel surf. Also using hulu on the ipad is annoying because it keeps zooming in on the image. I dont want a cropped image ever, that’s as bad as having soap opera (frame interpolation) mode turned on your tv.

There a way to meet you as every time and watching a show or anime I get in between three and four as every episode some ads are over a minute some ads are A minute 30 seconds in with the basic subscription plan I only can watch certain shows I can’t watch my favorite show the boondocks because it’s locked this is the same for many other shows an anime that I can’t watch including movies also who has a better selection of movies
Content is good, app is crap
by MattMull on 2020/08/07 16:55
I use all of the major streaming services on my phone and Hulu is by far the worst. Constantly lagging, crashing, or taking ages to load.
Ads
by Forces117 on 2020/08/07 16:27
There are just too many ads. Like before the episode or movie starts I expect a few ads. That’s normal. But they do at least 5 long ads almost every time. Then in the middle of some of the series I watch’s episodes there will be 5 more ad breaks though out the whole thing. But other than that, love this!
I hope you enjoy long long commercials...
by Luke1755 on 2020/08/07 12:56
Do you remember a time before the VCR? I don't, but that's what I got to experience with Hulu Live. You can't fast forward the commercials of the programs on your DVR, so for every twenty minutes of programming you watch about five minutes of commercials! 🤬 If you want the premium edition of the non live, same situation, tons of ads. If you get the top subscription, you will watch OVER FIVE MINUTES of commercials for every episode of How I Met Your Mother. Complete. And. Utter. Garbage. Get literally any other streaming service.
Getting sloppy
by Mbroke on 2020/08/07 12:00
Was very reliable a year ago but now it’s getting buggy. The app won’t let me watch live tv unless I open it at home. I’m at home and doesn’t work. They are trying to find a way to stop sharing of passwords. I’m not sharing! I left Sling to because it was buggy. Now where to go? hmmmm...
Volume

FIX YOUR SUBTITLES
by AlloyGunner on 2020/08/07 05:56
First you rip people off with having to pay for a service and then you make them pay more for no ads? Seriously?! But that’s not the main issue. The subtitles are absolutely horrible. I’m trying to watch burn notice but they are all over the place and most of the time miss important dialogue and there’s a lot of spelling errors.

Not what I paid for
by HFOX05 on 2020/08/07 03:42
I did not pay for poorly timed and irrelevant commercials that repeat themselves every time. Especially ones that are in SPANISH. My language settings are on ENGLISH. If I spoke Spanish I’d have them set to Spanish, but they’re set to ENGLISH. Overall this doesn’t even have very much more than Netflix and commercials on top of that make it worse. Don’t waist your money on this cheap third world attempt at entertainment.
App won’t load majority of the time
by wildbroncgirl on 2020/08/07 02:50
Okay the developers on this really designed a poor app. Search function is sloppy and limited and several times a week I have to delete the app and reinstall it. I guess you guys never heard of beta testing and continual improvements? No. Why do that?
Needs auto play
by Yolanda Nickname on 2020/08/07 02:23
The app works well but I just wish once I select the next episode in the top left that it would start playing it and not make me press play every time. Kinda ruins bingeing shows.

Pay for repeated ads
by mikesalad on 2020/08/07 01:19
Buy Hulu if you’d like to watch repeated ads. I currently pay for my subscription and am thinking about cancelling due to this. There’s been times where ads have been repeated FOUR TIMES.

One problem
by Lil_pizookie on 2020/08/06 20:28
I love The App It’s super useful! But one problem, I’m a Weeb so I like to watch anime, I’m from Arizona and I speak English and so I watch dubbed anime. So when I saw the dubbed episodes I got super excited, but the anime I really wanna watch diabolik lovers is all subtitles and they go to fast for me to read, and I know there’s a dubbed version cause my friends played it. So could you please put out dubbed anime series’s it would really help if you did!
Disappointed of Hulu
by Mario MG Power on 2020/08/06 17:23
The best series are all conveniently ABSENT from Hulu, along with almost every episode 1 of each season... if you want to start watching a series that a friend recommends you can only see the las season.. which doesn’t make sense. Clearly Hulu is too CHEAP to pay for the best episodes (all the ones you remember!). Hulu, either buy the COMPLETE ENTIRE series or don't buy/stream it all... Waste of money depending on a service that gives you "fake" access to shows without all the best episodes!! These kind of shady practices should be illegal. So unethical. HULU when you first sign up for it has an algorithm thats provides you with its best service which is subpar but better than what you get later on which is No chance to watch because it boots you constantly or just will not work at all. This is how they keep control of their way overworked server, so when you call to complain they put you back on good service for a limited amount of time of course while slowing back, scrambling, or haulting others peoples service. Again it keeps control over their way undersized server crashing. Do you want to be treated that way paying for something. I DO NOT.
Keeps freezing on start up
by djOdaddy on 2020/08/06 11:12
It seems like every third time the app will freeze on the Hulu screen. I have to quit the app and restart. It’s not a huge issue but annoying. Happens on both iPhone and iPad. Sometimes recorded shows do not show up until hours later. Other times when I delete recorded shows they show back up. If I start watching a recorded show that is in progress the app will freeze or crash when the live program ends. Overall pretty happy with the app otherwise.

It has too many ads. I mean its ok to have some ads but this is just crazy. It has ads every 5 minutes it drives me nuts. I know im not paying for the no ads plan but i feel like im paying to see the same ads over and over every five to eight minutes. That’s insane!

by Zakia28 on 2020/08/06 05:48
it's okay, i guess it has a large variety of things to watch but it has WAY to many ads, like especially for something I have to pay for, not even youtube has that many ads and it's free. it would be different if the ads were short but they're like 80 second ads every 10 minutes in an hour long show. i pay for Netflix, Disney plus, hbo max, and none of them have ads simply because i'm already paying for the app why would i pay for something just to be watching ads the whole time
Fine on Apple TV. Trash on iPhone.
by Seattle Southpaw on 2020/08/06 05:06
Despite Hulu Live continually charging more month-after-month, the live TV service has deteriorated in both service and user interface. I primarily use Hulu Live on my Apple TV, and I frequently use the iPhone app to search for TV shows. I’ll stand 6-8’ from my Apple TV, on the same home WiFi that Hulu Live uses to send content to my Apple TV, and Hulu blocks me from live TV on my iPhone with this snide message about me not being home and in the same location as what’s listed on my Hulu Live account. I’m home. Same IP address. Same subnet. Same mailing address. And the only button you can press says “GOT IT.” No, I don’t “GOT IT.” I’m paying cable prices for a cord cutting live TV service that blocks me when I’m trying to access that same subscription service on my iPhone from the same address as my Apple TV. Why shouldn’t I go with Sling or another alternative? Hulu Live is basically a delicate and unfinished product that has been sent prematurely into the wild. It’s buggy. It’s temperamental. It’s hard to navigate. I used to tolerate that, because of the lower price, but it’s no longer worth it.
Glitchy and impossible to sign in
by user132642 on 2020/08/06 05:02
Upgraded to the bundle from my Disney+. Hulu websites glitches every time I attempt to “sign up” for an account I’ve already paid for. From my phone, laptop, and xbox, absolutely unusable.
Latest update ruined subtitles
by logrud on 2020/08/06 04:09
After the latest update none of the subtitles are available to me on any of the shows. Bad business for hearing impaired customer.
Not great
by mrpepper98 on 2020/08/06 02:41
Hulu has some great original and licensed content but this app is the worst. If you’re on the fence between Hulu and Netflix get Netflix just because of Hulu’s lousy app. Restarts whatever episode you’re watching when you open it. Throw the ads in and it’s a jarring user experience. Honestly, screw them for collecting money for seamless service, while failing to provide it and somehow also being the only service that hasn’t figured out how to operate without ads. Move over losers.
Allow me to manage which profile links to my google assistant
by janjroo on 2020/08/06 02:08
Once you do, I’ll switch this to 5 stars. Right now, it links to the first profile in the account. But I’m the 3rd profile on the account, so I’m at a different point in the show than profile #1.

Couldn’t hate the new layout more if I tried
by sdmbcp on 2020/08/05 23:55
I have been saying forever that I liked Hulu better than Amazon prime and Netflix because of the user-friendly interface they had. Now, this new look is just like Amazon prime and Netflix, and I can’t stand it. Please please change it back!!!! Otherwise, I appreciate that they have all of my old 90s and early 2000’s TV shows. Now if they could fix the issue of the shows picking up where they were left off previously, instead of sometimes 5 or 10 minutes in the past, that would be nice too

Least reliable
by Kaorovic on 2020/08/05 22:38
We have Amazon, Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu. We had a sling and dropped it in favor of Hulu because Hulu is supposed to have more channels. Of the five, Hulu is the least reliable. The slightest wobble in the Internet and you have to completely restart the app if not the device. Instead of constantly re-designing the layout maybe they should work on reliability.
Live Streaming does not work
by PDX Ron on 2020/08/05 22:33
Used to work well but with the revised app, we can’t access the Live content that we’re paying for. Oddly enough, when we try to cancel our subscription, that feature also does not work. Stick with cable.

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
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!
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.
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.

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.
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.
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!!!!!!
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?
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!
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...
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!
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
Newest update causes more problems
by lpr2012 on 2019/10/22 00:16
Update: Down to one star. - Resume now never works. It always starts the episode back at the start, even on the same device. The thumbnail will show something like 70%, say “Resume,” but tapping will just start at the network logo and you get to scrub to try and find your spot. - Crashes in the background on TV OS every time it’s launched. - When you have Live TV with no commercials, about 50% of the time, the system will play the live on-demand version of a show instead of the no commercials version. Killing the app and restarting will re-roll for you. Update: New regressions. Do you all need help testing basics? - If you stop a show mid-stride, coming back to the interface shows the “resume” button and a progress bar at the right place. Tapping resume starts the show over. Happens about 90% of the time on TV and iPhone/iPad apps. The update again causes more usability bugs. - Links from the TV app no longer work again, and watch percentage is no longer updated back. Happens about 20% of the time. - Resume function no longer works. Stopping a video and resuming it later on Apple TV causes the video to start at the beginning about 50% of the time. Seems to work fine on iPad and iPhone. - App crashes when video is paused and the screen saver comes on or the screen locks. Happens about 30% of the time.
$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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Not showing watched
by Michellepizzalover on 2018/11/25 03:02
Many times, I finish an episode with less than a minute left and when I go back to the menu, it says resume episode, then restarts episode. I don’t want to watch it again, I just watched it. I want it to show that I watched it so it is not sitting at the top of my stuff like it is new. Sometimes I will restart the episode, fast forward to the end, then wait for the time to get down to 0 so that hopefully the episode will show as watched, which it doesn’t always do. There are currently 3 shows that I have completely watched, but say resume episode and I don’t know how to get it to acknowledge that I watched it. There must be an easier way! It’s bothersome.
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.
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?
UI suggestions....
by Adam H.. on 2019/11/20 04:42
I can’t say anything about commercials and switching plans because I already have the Ad free version and I have live tv in other means, but, during playback, PLEASE... Make the swipe to rewind/fast forward inactive until one swipes up enough first, or some other gesture to reduce unintentional swipes. I can’t tell you how many times I mess up the playback position while trying to pick up my one iPad without a case or cover because I tap the screen edge then bump the slider significantly. Make the video not pause when going from Picture in Picture back to full screen if it’s already playing. The whole point of going full screen is to continue viewing on the full screen. I know it can be done...competitor apps do it.
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.
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.
Apply TV app is horrendous
by nathanalf on 2017/10/06 16:44
I honestly don’t even know where to begin. All the complaints below apply to the Apple TV app as that is the primary way I use it, and I can’t speak to the iPhone / iPad versions. Half the time clicking on a title does nothing, especially in the “up next” pop up when an episode ends, and if you let the timer run down it replays the episode you just watched instead of skipping to the next one. Half the time when you do play an episode either the sound is a second off from the video (only fix is force quitting the app). Also have had the video appear not the play, click to play again and now two streams of the same episode are playing (one on top of the other) resulting in double audio - and the only fix is force quitting the app. I swear half of the time I use this app it is force quitting the app and waiting for it to reload. Navigation is a HOT mess. Where are the simple badges saying which shows have a new episode available? Why is the “my stuff” category not available to filter by new episodes available? Why do I need to wait for the app to “fetch new recommendations” every single time I open it up? I love love LOVE hulu’s service, and in the past the app has been very solid. However once this redesign rolled out I feel like the quality / reliability of the app has greatly suffered.
Better mobile experience than on home TV
by nicki names on 2019/07/03 20:03
The mobile app is pretty good. Navigation is thoughtful and fairly well-organized. The mobile app also allows you to immediately press an icon in the center of the screen to go straight to the live broadcast instead of starting at the beginning for shows in your recording list. For some strange reason, that button is missing in the Fire tv version of the app. As a result, I have to manually hold the right button to fast forward to get to the live stream. Annoying, and particularly confusing for my elderly relatives who wonder why the show is not live and on a delay. This needs to be more like navigating and consuming on a cable provider (can’t believe I just said that).
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!
Where are all the seasons at???
by PotatoeKing on 2018/03/28 21:10
I'm very disappointed with the fact that almost all the shows you have never finish the show. They're always missing seasons unless it's a 1/2 season show! This is very dumb not only because we cannot finish our show BUT shouldn't all those ads you put in the middle of our shows make you enough money to give us a full series??!!!! This is very annoying. For example one of my shows had to end on an episode where there is still so much story to be told, but I could not experience this show because of this terrible idea. This is ABSOLUETLY outrageous considering we're supposed to be able to "catch up on all our favorite shows". This slogan is a HUGE LIE. If you want an app where you can stop watching in the middle of a plot on a show BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T SPEND SOME OF ALL THAT MONEY THEY MAKE GIVING US SOME GOSH DARN ENDINGS TO FINISH OUR SHOWS!!!!!😡
The worst app I’ve ever used
by CkBailey8816 on 2020/08/04 02:47
Seriously where do I start with how garbage this app is both on my computer and phone. I honestly hate this app with a passion which is the only reason I’m writing this review. It will start playing randomly when you leave it open. Just logged me off for no reason whatsoever. Terrible interface when selecting shows or trying to find the show you were previously watching. I guess you have to log in ever 30 days just to still get live TV WHICH IS SOMETHING I PAY EXTRA FOR ALREADY. There is no way to switch between live shows like just pressing a ‘last’ button. If you skip around a show because the app sometimes doesn’t save your place it’ll make you rewatch commercials you just saw. Truly one of the worst apps I’ve ever used which is hard to do. Especially coming from such a major company. If I didn’t pay for the service I would get rid of it in a heartbeat.
It’s awesome but has some cons
by hedeejejbcdh on 2020/06/15 02:33
Ok this app is amazing but here are some cons a lot of the time when I press on the app it just turns off and I tried powering off my phone two times it still didn’t work :( and it sometimes turns off while I’m trying to watch a show and when I go back on it. It also rewinds a bit :(also it needs to add season 2 of 911 :( because if you try watching season 3 with out watching season 2 you will be completely lost:( also sometimes it puts me on a different spot on a episode of a show than where I was on that episode :( but I do like all the variety of shows and movies it has :) although I talked a lot of bad on this review it overall is a amazing at app! And these are just my opinions :3
Giving 5 because many fixes have been done
by Fantasticallyella on 2018/09/21 20:25
Firstly, it’s 5 to try and help weigh in against all the people who complained about losing HDMI because it’s been fixed. And on that note thank god the HDMI lightning connector works again. There was no way I was gonna budge and spring for additional technology when I’m broke A/F all the time. The overall selection seems to be getting more bunk. Maybe start adopting shows like The Last Man on Earth as Netflix has done with Arrested Development for example. That being said I still find shows on here worth the amount I pay for the subscription. Smoothish transitions from episode to episode. I think the forward / backward 10 and 30 seconds is odd I’m used to the 1:1 that most video players use. Lastly I think the selection screen - at least on a mobile device - is too large and requires too much scrolling. Again comparing to Netflix, while browsing you can view several show title cards and multiple categories at once. For the regular streamers that’s great when I’m trying to just generally peruse highlighted shows.

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!
Great live TV, not the best navigation
by nickgreene25 on 2018/10/24 01:14
It’s a bulky interface that requires too many clicks to achieve what your looking for. This has been a great alternative to Cable, and we’re happy with the quality of streaming, but the guide and actions are not very simple. Would be easier if there are options to go straight to live TV at startup rather than having to go from main menu every time. Better sorting options for the guide would be nice too, like maybe having a favorites sections. They have “news” and “sports” channel guides, but often times they leave off channels that it might not deem in those categories, even if it is. Just needs a little refining for a better experience, but overall it’s better than paying for cable.
Needs a fix but good
by Lugubrinilily on 2019/12/01 20:00
I love the app. Easy interface with a great selection but, commercials please fix them, I’m okay with the breaks and it makes sense but why another set of commercials just because I rewinded it 10 seconds? It doesn’t make sense, it should skip passed them since I already watched them I shouldn’t be penalized for wanting to replay a part of the show. Is there a wider variety of commercials also? I seem to always get the same ones. Another thing that really really needs fixing is the buffering icon in the middle of the screen when watching on my laptop, if I so as rewind a few seconds back it will stay in the middle of the screen and my only option to get rid of it is to reload the page, not only does that not continue where I left off but it’s could also be susceptible to ANOTHER COMMERCIAL BREAK. Please fix
Random issues with no pattern
by roegner on 2019/05/28 19:06
So I need subtitles, but sometimes when a commercial break is over the subtitles will randomly stop working. Now the audio cut out completely for no apparent reason. I think it’s also very irritating when I open or slide into my notifications screen or quick settings screen that the show I’m watching won’t play in the background, and just pause automatically. Furthermore, it is astonishingly annoying how if I slightly move or tap something on screen that my video will slide away. I feel like there should be an arrow specifically for minimizing the video, instead of relying on everything to slide. Lastly, if I slide out of a video for just a few seconds, I shouldn’t have to watch 90 seconds of commercials all over again to just continue my show. Please resolve these issues, thank you.
Five stars EXCEPT
by 👍🏼💪🏼👌🏼 on 2018/09/25 08:48
Five stars...Except the latest update. instead of the movie just automatically switching to horizontal view when you push play, it stays small and brings up the list of shows you’ve watched previously/are in the middle of. Why would I want to see those while I’m watching a show? They take up over half the screen.... It’s stupid and annoying that I have to click a million buttons just to get it to full screen. And half the time the full screen button doesn’t work cause it’s so small the heat from my finger bypasses it and just makes the play/pause/full screen options disappear—so then I have to tap it again.
What the hell
by Marshire on 2017/11/22 11:51
So, I’m one of those people that likes to rewind on my favorite scene. So, I loved it when more streaming services added the fast forward and rewind ten seconds buttons. However, is there any reason that they need to be in the middle of the screen blocking everything? Does the screen need to be dimmed when it does this? Short answer. NO. What worse is when when your pausing or using the 10sec but and hit anywhere else on the screen, either to close the dimming or by accident, the show will skip to wherever you touched. Dudes that’s what the bar at the bottom is for. You tried to make something more convenient and instead made it aggravating as hell. Literally just had the show start over twice because of this idiotic feature and I wouldn’t let me skip the tv shows channel thing that before. So, I ended up watching it three times. Seriously, not useful at all.
Awful
by zhansen06 on 2017/09/14 00:18
The old app worked fine but was very clunky. I didn't think an update could be this bad. This app is difficult to use and is not intuitive at all. Oftentimes it errors out when playing the next episode of a show, forcing me to grab a device and attempt to play it again. I really just cannot stand the way this app is organized now. Sure, it's pretty, but the "Home" tab lists a SINGLE show. Across an entire iPad display. A complete waste of screen real estate. "My stuff" tab shows a list of your shows that you enjoy watching but it is organized in a complete non-categorical way. Very frustrating. Finally when you search for a show you want to watch (the best and easiest way to find anything, given this app's poor design), you have two small boxes with the last episode you left off on, and the latest episode. Once again, poor use of a huge iPad screen. You have tabs at the top for "episodes", but unless you know better, "seasons" is buried inside there as a small link. Constructive feedback? I suppose change "episodes" into a "seasons" button or something of the sort. However this won't change the overall design of the app being so poor and the waste of screen space. The old app was very old and also very clunky, BUT at least it was laid out logically.
Anyone else disappointed with new update?
by Mooveychick on 2018/05/12 02:19
Just curious if anybody else is having trouble with the new update. There have been many times that I’ve been watching a show on my iPad, then all of a sudden it stops and an error message comes up saying I can’t watch the show in my region. I’m in the United States people! And then I try other shows and it gives me that same message. I’m also having trouble with the show playing and then all of a sudden it jumps back to the very beginning where the television network logo comes up and then it will jump back to where I was watching. I don’t know what’s going on. It was working fine prior to this update
App is good but few problems
by yurr123 on 2020/04/24 08:32
The fast forward and rewind should be 10 seconds. when you are watching a show and you want to take a break it should go to my stuff so you can watch it later or resume where you left off. you have the live tv option the bottom of your screen in between my stuff and search. Also you should have a section for stuff that will come out soon so people can have notifications if they like it so when it comes out they could watch it. You should also make it easy for customers to change their plan if they want to in the account section because it is very annoying to have to go from the app to the website.
