Help!
by Chatterbox1177 on 2021/01/22 07:52
My app keeps making be go out and restart every time I look at a show or movie. I love this app. I mean I pay a lot for it. Please fix!
Very Poor Performance
by Bobby Dials on 2021/01/22 07:08
If I could give this 0 stars I would. It regularly has issues connecting/disconnecting when chrome casting. Also has issues fast forwarding & rewinding. Shameful for a brand like Hulu.
Wont play any videos
by SweetDan96 on 2021/01/22 05:18
It wont play any videos, it always says that i have to turn off the phone and back on and it still wont play
Hulu + live sports
by p3rupino89 on 2021/01/22 03:40
Hulu SAYS you can watch live sports for an additional monthly fee. TNT is one of the networks that is included in this live sports add on but every time there’s a game on TNT that I want to watch I CANNOT. They’ll instead show a recording AFTER the game is over. So why am I paying over $60/month if I can’t watch the games I want to see that are being shown on TNT?? I might as well pay an additional $10/month and get cable with WAY more channels. Also the commercials are super annoying. I understand having them for the basic plan but also for the live sports plan?? Cmon Hulu please do better by your customers
ads need to be shorter
by Jakaksjsiapq on 2021/01/22 03:35
first of all paying for ads is ridiculous you’re the only streaming service that does it besides cable (lol) ads should be max 30 seconds long one at the start of the episode one at the end. NOT 5 2 minute ads in every episode. ridiculous
Problems
by Andeveryusernameistaken on 2021/01/22 03:20
The app on my phone and my smart tv used to work just fine. Now, it crashes randomly. God help you if you pause a show- it disconnects and starts from the beginning. Even if you scroll over to where you stopped, it will still start from the beginning. You need to get this fixed asap. I’m ready to cancel Hulu and get Apple TV instead.
Poor product
by Jasyn8719 on 2021/01/22 02:51
You would think with all the money this company gets their platform would not freeze and crash.
Horrible
by Chahahdkffd on 2021/01/22 02:42
The. Worst. Streaming. Service. Ever!!
Will not download for offline viewing
by Amanda0864 on 2021/01/22 02:00
For months now I’m not able to download any content on my iPad. My iOs is updated and the app is updated and I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled and even chatted with a tech from Hulu. NOTHING will get my shows to download for offline viewing. Every other streaming app downloads videos with no issues. My iPhone downloads them but because the offline content isn’t synced across all device I can’t view them on my iPad. Fix this!
$70
by HaZZaRD01xXx on 2021/01/22 00:55
As of 1/21 the price has increased to $70 for live without any add-ons. No thanks headed to YouTube.tv. Do better Hulu!
Crashes daily on my iPad
by JMR1220 on 2021/01/21 23:38
This app doesn’t work as good as the Amazon prime video or Netflix app on my iPad. Crashes every time.
Way behind
by FitchieElijah124 on 2021/01/21 22:19
Hulu will always be bottom tier. No picture, in picture streaming, navigation isn’t smooth, etc.
No Picture in Picture
by Michelle178 on 2021/01/21 21:27
There is no Picture in Picture functionality like there is in SlingTV. Very disappointing.
Worst most buggy streaming app
by DismantleDesign on 2021/01/21 20:28
Constantly has issues with crashing especially during casting to AppleTV. No other apps have this issue. Constantly has “trouble playing this title.” App always up to date. No other apps have any issues remotely as bad.
Shuts down
by Mal0172 on 2021/01/21 19:25
Constantly shuts down streaming mid-episode. Have to totally shut down before resuming.
Constantly crashes
by Megger Megs on 2021/01/21 14:14
Really fun to have every show stop midway with the notification “we’re having trouble playing this right now...” 🙄 Really? Because it WAS playing just fine. No Picture in Picture for iPhone which is ridiculous since every other streaming service has caught up with this.
Can’t watch new shows
by leinad177777 on 2021/01/21 13:57
How come I can’t just watch new shows that supposedly a new episodes come in I try to watch it it says error 2 hulu pretty trashy right now I don’t see why to even use the app if it doesn’t work
Update
by BadBoyBullyKennel on 2021/01/21 13:52
Why wasn’t Hulu the first television app to allow for Picture in Picture capability????? Hulu still doesn’t allow for Picture in Picture capability can someone please address this issue?????
Always problems with streaming.

Glitches
by Krissi562 on 2021/01/21 04:49
Once you click on a show and you try to choose something else there is a glitch. You actually have to leave the app close it out and do that all over again it’s extremely frustrating. There must be a way to fix this because it’s annoying really
Great content!... Sh*ty application
by FootballFreak116 on 2021/01/21 04:19
While watching anything, the app constantly crashes OR loses video OR loses audio (that one's new). This happens on my iPhone, my wife's iPhone, my iPad, my wife's iPad, the Windows app & on the Firefox browser (probably does it on the Chrome browser as well but I use Firefox as my default browser).
Quality
by Hela Odinson on 2021/01/21 03:55
I like watching my shows on my laptop. At first, the show I’m currently watching (Naruto Shippuden) had great quality but towards the end of season 1, the quality was the worst it’s ever been. It’s very pixely. I tried restarting my computer and reconnecting to the wifi and when that didn’t work, I figured if I downloaded the app on my computer, it would help...it didn’t. I checked to see the quality of other shows on my phone and laptop and they were normal. I couldn’t find anywhere else to watch the show so I just sucked it up and continued watching. However, when I checked again today (because it’s slowly eating me up) the quality on the app on my phone was just as bad. Please, PLEASE fix this on both your app and website. I’ve read other reviews with people saying they’ve been having this problem for months and it still isn’t fixed. Thank you.
Constant crashes and buffering
by jcaranza on 2021/01/21 03:47
At first I thought my internet was very slow but it turns out Hulu is just glitchy in itself. It takes me over 10 minutes to be able to reload a show I am watching and most the time it sends me back to the beginning. The app always crashes and gives me error codes saying they could not play the show. It has a great selection for my preference but having to watch a show in intervals of 10+ minutes because of buffering and crash is just not worth it at all. Fix your app Hulu.
Disappointment
by Luck23678 on 2021/01/21 03:22
I’ve been suscribe go Hulu for over a year now. However, for the past two months the app has been really annoying. Glitching and giving errors all the time. Meanwhile other apps connect almost immediately. Also, what happened to the choice of being able to be off the app and still watch the show in a smaller tab? There was no update or anything. Hulu please fix your app is a shame. They have really good shows but it’s not worth the money if you can’t use the app at all.
Fixed the app
by kool-aid man oh yeah grape on 2021/01/21 03:21
Every time I try to watch Boruto it says error and doesn’t work if you can please fixed this I will be thankful.
Please take out commercials
by hackers are cheaters on 2021/01/21 03:00
I have a quick question why do you guys have commercials it’s kinda annoying I’m sorry for asking just wondering but other than that this app is very good and love it so thanks
Do NOT waste your money
by gurt-yo on 2021/01/21 02:51
Do not waste your money and buy this app. It works less than a quarter of the time, and has very limited selection. On top of that they only really now show shows that they produce. Most of them aren’t even good in a rated poorly. we are not satisfied at all with the service provided or the content.
Update didn’t help
by ka m m on 2021/01/21 02:45
Works when it wants to.. terrible after the update. Error message keeps coming on. I had better service with Netflix, especially in low bar zones.

ive been having this trouble for a few months and finally decided to say something. i wanna watch bunny girl senpai while playing roblox and while watching i expect the pip to start yet it plays for a few seconds and then stops :(( pls fix
No more adds❗️❗️❗️😡
by ****** ****** **** on 2021/01/21 01:43
It’s great, but just get rid of the stupid adds, I mean, I run into an add every four seconds and it’s annoying. Other than that, it’s great.

Too many commercials

It’s too many commercials just to watch one video
They stole my money
by EJELIson on 2021/01/20 18:25
Don’t buy this they stole my money so I did a free trail then after I deleted the app and I tried to buy something else today it said declined and then when I looked at my money from my account
AMAZING

Broken
by sixtyMAC9 on 2021/01/20 14:07
Can you actually make your app work? Hulu is a great service in terms of shows, but your app is god awful. It deletes my downloads randomly, it stops working, the audio gets messed up for downloads, it force closes CONSTANTLY. I’m just tired of having to redownload the same episode of a show forty times just to have the app force close and have the episode be gone AGAIN when I open it back up.
Picture in Picture functionally has been removed
by thucydides09 on 2021/01/20 08:43
Serious shame, makes it worth just paying for shows elsewhere
Such an expansive selection!
by Yum yum yeeeeee on 2021/01/20 07:46
IF I WAS ABLE TO WATCH A SINGLE SHOW I WANTED TO WATCH. Why list the show on the platform if EVERY SINGLE TIME I attempt to watch it, I get a smug, “hmm... something’s up... YEAH. CLEARLY. WHATS UP IS THAT I’M SWITCHING TABS TO NETFLIX. This is equivalent to going to McDonald’s and paying for a cheeseburger, and when you drive up to the window they tell you they are out of cheeseburgers, laugh at you, and spit in your face. You are the Bing of streaming services. I don’t think it’s a big ask for a few decent shows to be readily available on the THIRD LARGEST STREAMING SERVICE IN THE GODFORSAKEN WORLD. EVERY TIME I SO MUCH AS SEE THE COLOR LIME GREEN IN PUBLIC I BOIL WITH ANGER REMEMBERING ALL THE TIMES I WANTED TO WATCH BOBS BURGERS AND I WAS SLAPPED IN THE FACE BY HULU’S RUDE ERROR MESSAGES. $12 A MONTH?? YOU SHOULD BE PAYING ME FOR EVEN CONJURING UP THE THOUGHT OF DOWNLOADING YOUR APP. Have a wonderful day.
FIX THE PLAY AND REWIND BUTTONS
by Livie Liv got Swag on 2021/01/20 06:08
Yo fix the play/pause and rewind/fast forward! Every time I go full screen, I can’t use either! And a whole lot of other people are feeling the same! Just put them in the middle! Much less hassle
Maybe do some testing once in awhile?
by WhatAStupidAppThisIs16 on 2021/01/20 06:01
It’s clear that the Hulu app developers have never done a day of testing their lives. This app constantly disconnects from my Chromecast. Fast forward and rewind don’t work. And if you try pause a show through the lock screen widget, it immediately disconnects from the Chromecast resulting in needing to go back to the app, manually reconnect, and then resume playback. Seriously. It’s called testing. Do it sometime.

This app is textbook on how to make people mad
by Big DW1000 on 2021/01/20 04:03
My network is fine, iOS & app are latest version, running on iPhone se. I used to have to restart the app 3 or 4 times before my show actually comes on. The newest update just plays the ad, then crashes, doesn’t even play my show. Hulu needs to straighten this out or they’re probably gonna lose some valuable customers. It’s pathetic & needs work big time.
Not going to get
by kaleilani on 2021/01/20 03:14
I was just in the Apple App Store going to download Hulu. After reading the comments, a lot of them, I decided I’m not going to. There are so many bad reviews. All about the ads the buffering man just wanted to say. No thank you.

Adds
by Dia🥵 on 2021/01/20 03:00
The app is good but sometimes lags and if you already have to pay for it why is there adds? I don’t get that you basically pay for no adds but it gives you adds which I think is stupid

Constantly restarting episodes
by Whiskeydancer on 2021/01/20 01:24
Mine constantly just restarts episodes/ movies and it drives me crazy! It seems incapable of fast forwarding or rewinding content.
It’s ok
by GAMER0331390 on 2021/01/20 00:56
I like this app because I watch plenty of shows the only thing I hate is the ads!!!! WAY TO MANY....
When casting it stops other videos after a second of play.
by Dudewhytwoapps on 2021/01/20 00:21
Why does this stop a video on my iPhone after one second of play when I am casting to my tv? It’s been doing this for a long time. When I am casting to my tv I cannot watch a video on Facebook or even from my messenger.

Only problem I’m having so far is ..
by Glowy duh on 2021/01/19 23:00
I do love Hulu. The only thing that I’m having trouble with now it’s that it freezes so much . It’s getting frustrating having to close the app and reopen just to scroll . Each time I tap on a show or movie I go back and try to scroll but it’s just freezes . I already deleted the app and redownloaded it but still freezes :/
Bottom of list of all streaming apps
by meow kawaii :3 on 2021/01/19 22:50
Come on Hulu.....you’re HULU! Don’t be so cheap. This app drains my phone battery at an alarming rate. Glitches. Freezes. Can’t do things outside of app while watching a show (this is pretty much standard and available everywhere now). App quality doesn’t match what we pay for the service or the reputation of being a major streaming service.
Chromecast support is barely usable

Needs Picture in Picture
by SJ3455 on 2021/01/19 20:25
I really like it, but most of the other video streaming services now support Picture in Picture capabilities which is helpful to be able to respond to a message or check something quickly without stopping the video.

Pay for something that hardly works
by Cryptodnut on 2021/01/19 17:36
Anytime I’m streaming through my phone, there is a plethora of issues that after nearly 6 mos continue to happen everyday. Call me crazy but if I’m paying for something shouldn’t it work correctly, isn’t that a staple to business? When I have to restart my phone three times just to pause a show I already started streaming, makes me believe that Hulu doesn’t give a rip about their customer base. Numerous complaints about the same thing on the reviews and Hulu doesn’t even have the decency to comment on the issue. Guess when you have so much money coming in, you can cut corners in today’s market. Fix your crappy software issues Hulu.

Apple TV app needs fixing
by JEM_BK on 2021/01/19 16:51
The Apple TV app regularly skips an episode when automatically starting the next episode which has led to confusion and spoiling. It’s annoying. Otherwise, good selection of content.

When streaming to tv, it kicks me out of the app and I have to disconnect or even use another app to kick Hulu off from my tv only to be able to start over cast again and rewind or change episode or whatever.
I like it but there are some problems
by jelly kins on 2021/01/19 11:19

Episode selection

The new version of the app doesn’t let you select the episode you want to watch. It’s horrible.
Can’t change channels

Missing episodes
by HeatherOnTheFly on 2021/01/19 06:53
I really like this app and I pay for the commercial free version. However, on the 90210 seasons, there are missing episodes in every season except for the first two seasons. So when you’re into one episode, then it skips two episodes and you don’t know what just happened. I would really like the missing episodes to be added to the seasons of 90210.
Error code : rununk13
by ewwwwweww on 2021/01/19 05:14
I love the idea of this app but for the past year it’s been super buggy. I pay for Hulu, it’s ad free option and HBO inclusion and still when I want to watch my Hulu on my phone, it just doesn’t want to work properly. It crashes after each episode of a show I want to watch and give me an error code saying I have to clear out cache and stuff. I uninstall and reinstall this app several times (as apple no longer has the option to just clear cache and cookies) and the problem persists. Hulu please fix this. It’s obvious it’s not on my end.
Does not do background play
by alyb123456 on 2021/01/19 04:41
For some reason, Hulu used to let me watch things using Picture-in-picture / background play, and when I updated it this feature is now gone. This is extremely frustrating and has made me switch to Netflix. PIP is 100% expected from all streaming apps at this point.

I just updated it and will let you know how that goes. I have an iPhone SE 2nd gen. Not sure what is causing it to happen on just one app
UI is terrible and I need to restart my apple TV every day
by Ougrad1 on 2021/01/19 00:40
***update 1/18/2021*** This app just keeps having problems that require me to restart my apple TV at least 2-3 times a week. This time, I'm judt trying to click on another program on another channel and I got this error code: Rununk13 If you haven't subscribed to Hulu yet, don't. Go with YouTube TV. ***update on 10/13/2020*** There is a massive handshake and service issue on Apple TV. At least 4 days of the week, when I turn on the TV and Hulu for the first time, Hulu takes forever to load, it asks me to re-login, hangs on loading my profile, gives an error message that they can't load the service, or gets to the home screen but no content is viewable. I have 1GB fiber and all my other streaming services works fine. The only thing I can do is restart my apple TV. This is ridiculous and absolutely a Hulu issue. I'M GOING TO SWITCH TO YOUTUBE TV AS THEY DON'T SEEM TO HAVE CAPACITY AND STREAMING ISSUES! -------------------------------------------- So many poor UI/UX decisions in this app. 1. So the UI is annoying in that scrolling down through home content means you have to click. All.the.way. Back. Up. To get to the header menus like Home, my stuff...etc. That's ridiculously slow. Why don't you let us have those menus on the side so we're aren't having to click all the way back up. 2. Also, searching for last viewed content is not accurate. I was watching a documentary on China in one of the on demand categories and went to bed mid way. When I tried to go back to finish, I couldn't find a 'continue watching' section and had to do a search for 'china' since I didn't remember the exact name of the program. 3. Recording doesn't let me record series for live events like F1 racing. I have to go search for each upcoming race and schedule the recording separately. It's 2020, let's make it capable for people to record seasons. 4. when recording show seasons, other providers have smart recording where it doesn't just record reruns but allows you to only record new episodes. Again, it's 2020, I had this with xfinity and att TV from 2016 service. 5. Last but worst of all, in some recent update, I have to restart my apple TV 4K version every. Single. Day. Becuase the Hulu app just spins but never loads. It's always required me to select my user every day but this is new in that the app doesn't loaf. I've deleted and reinstalled but no Bueno. Only thing that works is restarting my apple TV. I checked my Netflix, Amazon prime, att watch TV services and every other app is fine. Please Fix your app for Apple TV!
App is frustrating
by Lopius Magus on 2021/01/19 00:14
Of all my apps, this is the only one I have to constantly delete and reinstall. Then it works for about a day, and then freezes saying “weak or no internet connection” which is hogwash because all my other streaming apps work fine. Uninstalling and reinstalling fixes it. So does restarting the iPad — but again, it´s only Hulu that does this. Fix it please.
Does not work with chromecast
by Tuggle4812 on 2021/01/18 21:53
Extremely glitchy with chromecast, which pretty much makes it useless for me
Able to change audio

Hulu I love this app but I want to watch botuto:naruto next gen but it is in Japanese or Chinese so I can’t understand what they say
Good but casting is flawed
by Havbebskdh1 on 2021/01/18 18:56
I’ve noticed some major flaws when casting shows using chrome cast. The episode listed “up next” usually doesn’t change when moving on to a new episode playing in the player. If I turn off my phone and turn it back on, the app shows it’s connected to the tv, but I don’t see a way to get back to the episode that is currently playing. The app also has issues with the episode list occasionally freezing or just disappearing after moving to the next episode. Please work on these bugs to make casting useable. Edit: casting over airplay is also pretty bad. There is a ton of lag when trying to use any of the video controls. I’ve discovered the only way to use the skip 10 seconds button is to do it from an Apple Watch. For some reason the episode up next does actually change most of the time when using airplay. Maybe ask the developers over at Netflix for some tips on how to make your casting better. Other than the casting having major issues the app is pretty good, I haven’t had problems watching on a device.
Bring Picture in Picture back!!
by TheMrsCallahan on 2021/01/18 17:21
I love this app, and I use it daily! But, I HATE that PiP no longer works!! Bring it back!!
Viewing Hulu while working on other apps feature
by Vona313 on 2021/01/18 17:14
A feature that allows you to still watch your show on Hulu and have the capability of opening other apps simultaneously. I ENJOY Hulu regardless but would definitely enjoy that feature if capable.
Live TV stream is bad
by Jh1891 on 2021/01/18 17:09
I’ve had Hulu for some time now, and they often raise prices unexpectedly - definite con. Live TV streams are terrible - particularly FOX and NFL games - resolution is around 480p and noise artifacts fill the screen. It’s so bad i’ve actually considered going back to cable
the smart tv app messes up constantly
by evehunter24 on 2021/01/18 16:31
Since the interface ipdate 6 months ago, The app crashes while streaming, it doesn’t update/save the last watched episode so I end up having to figure out exactly which episode I am supposed to be on, during continuous streaming of the same show it will go back 3 episodes instead of continuing to the next, it’s also much much slower. Fix it please
No more ads
by Ali.the god on 2021/01/18 16:22
I wanna watch Naruto in peace not with Kroger ad plz no more ads
Cuts out so much
by McKell73 on 2021/01/18 16:15
Every time I watch something on Hulu it cuts out and says we’re having trouble playing this when it was playing perfectly fine it’s so annoying
Always have to force close app.
by Johnathen Jones on 2021/01/18 14:23
The app stops responding when there is a clear internet connection. Only way to make it work is to force close the app. Good content, bad app. Only app on phone I have to do this for.
App Closed Captions Don’t Work
by hoopsta14 on 2021/01/18 13:07
Captions don’t work when streamed on Chromecast. Shows always disconnect and restart when app is reopened.
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
Grayed out?
by RMF 2012 on 2020/11/24 06:52
I like this app a lot. A show I’ve been meaning to rewatch is on it and has all seasons. There’s only a few things I question, and first, is that sometimes it lags and when it comes back the subtitles are on. When I go to the cog button to turn them off, it tells me that they’re not on, that they’re default subtitles and I can’t turn them off. It says “not available” in grayed out font and the button isn’t even green like “on”, yet they are on and I don’t know how to turn them off when everything is grayed out. Normally I don’t have a problem with captions, but for watching on my iPhone, they’re really distracting. Only thing I can do is exit and swipe out of the app completely and wait a bit before opening it back up. Another thing I don’t get is when I turn my phone sideways, in order to pause my show, I have to turn my phone so it’s vertical again bc the ⏪▶️⏩ buttons don’t work when my phone is horizontal, which is strange. I can’t pause or play it, or go back or forward with my phone sideways. I have to put my phone back upright and then pause/play/ffw or rewind it. But other than that it’s a great app, and I’m happy I can rewatch my show.
Poor Convenience?
by Gingeraide on 2021/01/07 19:22
I binge a lot of the shows I watch, and I pay to have no commercials, and yet there’s so many annoying bugs that really make it hard to conveniently use this app, the most prevalent one being that there used to be a widget that would allow you to watch your show as you scrolled/used other apps in your phone, and then suddenly it just disappeared? Without an update, just stopped being able to do that. Really irritating, yet I find that if I have my phone connected to my aux in my car and I pull up the gps while leaving the show running, the audio will continue to play soooo??? Another HORRIBLY ANNOYING thing is when the next episode automatically plays, it will just REPLAY THE SAME EPISODE I WAS JUST WATCHING. And more than half the time, if you press ‘next episode’, it will replay the same episode again anyways. Sometimes the next episode button isn’t there, and I have to restart the app, then go into the series details, scroll to the episode I was on and click the next one manually. This isn’t a rare occurrence, it’s every other episode. Please fix this, I’m going to stop paying so much per month if these simple conveniences aren’t addressed 😞
Make it easier to switch plans!
by wildbellelover on 2019/10/28 00:43
as a new user i of course decided to go with the cheaper plan to “try it out”. i haven’t even gotten thru the first episode of the show i was dying to watch and i’m already so over all of these ads! the option to upgrade isn’t even on the app.. i had to go log in on the web which again requires way more clicks than necessary.. although after reading reviews i guess it’s a good thing it’s not so easy because apparently you have to wait until your current subscription is cancelled which completes a month later!??? OMG! you’d think you would want to make your new subscribers experience the best.. again you should make it easier to upgrade or start everyone out with the BEST plan first.. and then give them the option to switch once the free trial ends.. just saying.. i don’t plan to cancel right away.. i guess i’ll leave it on during the free trial and use the app if i’m that desperate to watch an episode i’m willing to sit thru the same ads over and over every few minutes while trying to get thru an episode. best believe my subscription will be cancelled as soon as the trial is up! so disappointing! ugh!
Never ending issues
by _tinydancer_ on 2020/04/01 06:48
You would think for app with this many subscribers and this high of a subscription rate (for the live tv) the least they could do is make an app that works. The app has near constant glitches. It often plays the audio of one show while a completely different show plays. It never remembers where you left off in a show so you have to watch the same commercial breaks again. It freezes, it crashes. It has the worst UI. You can’t set shows that you’ve recorded to automatically delete after you’ve watched them so you have to do it manually. Even when you record shows, you can only fast forward through the commercials maybe 25% of the time. One show I record never records the whole episode. Even after I delete it, it stays this way. Then miraculously, after a week, the full episode appears. Seems like this app is perpetually a year behind it’s competitors. I really hope someone reads this and looks into all these perpetual issues, but I’m not holding my breath. Get it together. You owe your paying customers more than this.
Commercials and streaming service
by bakachibichan1 on 2020/11/21 07:41
So, for the commercials I don’t mind watching. However if you want to rewind to watch a scene before the commercials break you have to watch 3 minutes of commercials (1 min when you first pass through, 1 min when you rewind, and another minute when you pass through again). It’s kind of annoying that it does that and doesn’t save that you already watched the ad breaks like other video streaming platforms. In addition, I get a lot of problems with the streaming service. Like the episodes won’t load and it tells me to come back later or refresh. I know it’s not my internet because we just upgraded it to a faster speed and out of all the apps on my phone and TV this is the only one that needs to be refreshed. Lastly, episodes. Episodes on phones can only be watched two at a time. Then you have to go to the series list for the next two episodes, which is inconvenient because of the loading issue mentioned above. I love the shows on this app, but really not worth all the bugs and issues.

Could be way better
by Poshafied! on 2020/03/28 03:19
At first I loved this app then after using it for a awhile I found all the glitches. The time it takes to download a movie and all the buffering makes it difficult to even watch a show or a movie. I pay the extra for no commercials but by the time it buffers 25 times through the movie or show.... I give up. It never used to do this so much but now it’s all the time. I go to the other competition movie app and it doesn’t do it on that app so I know it’s not my internet. Did you get rid of someone that knew what they were doing tech wise??? Also they used to change the movie choices more often and have newer movies, even better that the competition, but now the movies are always the same and all OLD movies and horror film it’s boring and sickening. There used to be more choices, what about PBS, what about getting up to date history channel. I’d like to see some historical dramas and movies!! I pay my fee each month and I’m barely getting good use out of the app. I Really think I’ll discontinue my subscription.
Buffering, Glitches, Selection or Movies and Shows, and ADSS
by Alise Leonardo on 2020/06/06 04:52
Buffering and Glitches• The app has a nice selection of shows and tv shows. But it buffers and glitches A LOT!!! This makes it hard and annoying to watch stuff. It took me 20 minutes to get a movie started. I had to constantly restart the app and exit in and out of the app; to stop the glitches. I’ve checked my WiFi and it works perfectly. You would think with the updates it has they would have already fixed the constant buffering, loading, and glitches. It gets to the point where I can’t, don’t, or want to even bother to use the app. Selection of Movies and Shows• Another problem which isn’t that big is the selection of Movies and Shows. Don’t get me wrong it has an “okay” selection but they don’t update it that much. They don’t have much of the movies or shows I’m looking for. A lot of the shows they have aren’t that popular. I find it hard to not rewatch most of the same stuff. I’ve had this app for a year now and have watched mostly everything I’m interested in. Commercials• The commercials and constant ads in the app make me go CRAZY. There are so many commercials. I just want to watch something without commercials every 10-15 minutes. With all this I recommend Netflix or another app to watch stuff. But if you are looking for a specific show that is anti popular this app probably has it. The app has issues where it gets to the point you don’t want to use it.
Great Content. Terrible layout.
by Raffopat on 2020/05/01 01:47
I love the shows on this platform. But I run in to so many problems with quickly starting where I left off after my previous view sessions. It takes me a minute or two to get back to the episode I was watching, WHICH IS A PROBLEM I DONT INTO WITH ANY OTHER PLATFORMS. Very disappointed with the customer inference & the interaction I have had with it so far. The way the system works causes strain which SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING. I am a very tech savvy person too. But this app makes it 10x more strenuous to operate. Using this app opposed to others is a terrible experience.. The only reason I continue paying for this is because the content is great. I am very disappointed with the customer interface being a new customer. Its 2020, hope you know how to fix it. Sheesh. I’ll be sure to be talking to my friend about this too. Hopefully they get this fixed up soon. Lots of potential. Terrible platform performance so far. Don’t even get me started when I get gypped by watching 2 long adds in a row. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
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.
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.
Not Accessibility Friendly
by Thorned Rose Royalty on 2020/09/02 06:34
I’ve only had this app for a half an hour and I’m already so frustrated with myself for downloading it. I’m visually impaired, and while this app states that it has audio description it is impossible to use. I can’t find it anyway err on even the shows and movies it states has it, and when I go to the website to change it like it says I should it just gives me a description of what the feature is supposed to do instead of activating it. On this note, there is no way to find your continue watching. Where you can usually find shows and movies you have left off on other apps, this doesn’t have one, and if it does it need to be more easily accessible, even for beginners. It also didn’t save any of my shows/movies I clicked on that I’m interested in watching. Their “My Stuff” which I woul assume to be like Netflix’s “My LIst” only saved two of my shows I clicked on out of my eleven and one of my movies out of the eight. Over, extremely disappointed in the app and myself for having higher hopes in it.
PLEASE FIX, APP WONT OPEN,CRASHES EVERY TIME I OPEN IT!!!!
by Jewel Divine on 2020/04/28 18:24
How strange I write a review but App Store won’t post it‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️😡😡😡😡😡 Ever since latest update of week of April 20th 2020, the app crashes every time I click to open it, it won’t open it closes fast, faster than in the blink of an eye!!! This is a paid subscription that I pay more than $130+ a month for, could the developers please fix this asap!! Why should it be necessary to leave a review and never receive a reply and for it to come this far? Don’t you get paid to supervise the application enough to know there’s this huge bug or glitch whatever it is that it won’t let the PAYING CUSTOMER watch the programming without the unnecessary stress?!?!? Will this issue ever be fixed?!?! Going on a week now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t think you want your customers cancelling, let us know what’s going on, update us I think we have a right to know what’s going on and not be in a loophole!!!!! Way too many ads, I pay for Ad Free TV and it’s way too many repeated ads over again!!!! Kids filter should be updated for safer TV!!!!!!
Several Problems
by Queen1sa on 2020/09/04 15:05
My biggest issue with the app is that certain episodes won’t download. For example, episodes 1-3 of a show might download then 4 will refuse to. For someone who relies primarily on downloads, this is a pain. Also, some episodes are missing entirely from certain shows. This may just be a copyright issue, but with all the other issues this app has, you never know. More recently, I’ve been having a problem where episodes I’ve downloaded won’t play. I end up having to close the app and open it again just to make the episode play. And often it won’t save my progress if I stop in the middle. Finally, when I try to remove things from My List, some shows won’t leave. It says they’re not in there anymore, but they still appear in the feed. Honestly, the only reason I’m giving this app any stars is that I enjoy the content. I would be much happier, however, if they could fix these problems.
Worst streaming app by far
by Ibrad14 on 2018/06/06 12:24
I should not have to login every time I open the app… Even seconds later after I navigate out of it, when I go back it says there was an error and I need to login again. I still do not like how new shows do not always pop up to the front of my queue. There might be a show that I’m just not in the mood to watch and there are a couple of unwatched episodes… And that stays at the top of my queue. That’s fine until something else new or comes along it should bump it down. I was just getting used to the moronic layouts when all of these other things start happening, I thought we’ll maybe it’s because it’s not an updated app. So I cannot hear only time it just update it. Is there no quality assurance checks before and after you get released? Is there no focus group? Is there no research of what other streaming apps are doing and doing well?
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...
Amazing App
by Cocolattebanana on 2020/08/28 04:00
I find this an amazing app and do not understand why there are so many bad reviews. There are tons of shows to watch of many different genres Cartoons, Dramas, Action, Comedy and so much more. I’m sorry if you didn’t choose the right plan. There have been no troubles for me except one thing for kids I find it annoying that you can’t select a age until 13 my 10 year old can only watch shows for little kids and has been begging me to let her have TV-14 but that has inappropriate content for her. So please please make you be able to do different age ratings for kids under 13 such as TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, and TV-PG. I find this a problem because my daughter can only watch kid shows. I also caught my 4 year old watching sailor moon and I am positive this is not age appropriate for her. PLEASE CHANGE THIS.
SO MANY GLITCHES!
by 🌸❤️❤️🌸❤️❤️🌸 on 2020/05/22 05:03
Great app, but there are a lot of bugs that need to me fixed. First off, the skip, I tried to resume an episode I was watching and every time I would go to skip back to where I was, it would restart the episode. Also, the ad problem needs to be fixed, it keeps playing the ads, then replaying them. Like it would have the ads run as normal, then replay them for no reason. Also there needs to be an easier way to change plans. Skipping is rather annoying as well because every time I skip forward or back it sends me back to where I was! It has even started to black out my screen at certain points in movies and TV shows. I’m very upset about this because all I want to do is watch a show, and it won’t let me! Please fix all of this!
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
$5.99 for ads and terrible stream quality
by didntlikeit on 2019/09/20 17:02
This app has great content to be able to stream. But I hate that this app has prioritized ads over streaming connection. The app lags out almost 1/5 times I’m trying to watch something after an ad plays. I would say it might me my WiFi or data connection but Netflix doesn’t have this issue at all. All ads play perfectly but the content when streaming times out all the time. I pay $5.99 for tv like experience with all this content and the only real experience I’m getting is ads that I’m apparently paying for. I’m ending my subscription because this company puts advertising over quality of streaming which is what I had hoped to pay for. I don’t mind ads here and there. But I don’t want to watch ads every time because the app crashed on the streaming connection with pop up errors because only ads work. The app never crashes during an advertisement. Why is that?
Please fix....

I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo
by tilleyrs on 2017/10/14 06:16
I'm the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it's to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your "swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards" function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
Bugs
by AllieH1008 on 2017/09/15 02:07
Every time I try to open the app on my phone, it says "something is wrong: try again." Extremely frustrating. I've tried reinstalling and updating it, and it's the same problem. It won't work. Update: the previous problem has gone away, but with the new update, I accidentally fast forward my show probably about ten times in each sitting somehow. Its extremely easy to do. I end up watching extra commercials because of this, and then when I try to find my spot again, I have to sit through a second set of commercials if I click multiple times looking for the right scene. It adds a LOT of commercials to my viewing time. I also have similar concerns to others reviews, as it used to be easy to find my shows and find new things I'd be interested in, but now it's not as intuitive, and it's more difficult to quickly find things.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You Really Need To Let People Take Screenshots
by Batman Kittyface on 2019/05/04 02:04
Obviously whoever added the feature which makes the screen completely black every time you take a screenshot has little to no experience with the internet. No content pirate has ever thought “ah, yes, i will capture this movie frame by frame and then splice these frames together, then record the audio separately and dub it over my newly spliced video and hope it syncs up”. That’s ludicrous. The inability to take screenshots not only serves no purpose for the actual creators of the movies or TV shows, it’s also a great hinderance to people who produce content like fanart and fan theories who would typically use such screenshots as references. By not allowing screenshots, you are actually turning legitimate customers of your content towards illegal streaming sites because This Is The Only Way To Take Screenshots Of Our Favourite Shows And Movies. No one wins. It’s frankly kind of bizarre that anyone ever thought this was a good idea.
Terrible forward and rewind functionality
by Terrible forward / rewind tool on 2017/10/04 00:53
The latest update rolled out an upgrade to the forward and rewind tool. On the surface it seems like a lot of fun and simple to use, but in practice the new tool is a nightmare. It is incredibly easy to accidentally rewind to the beginning or end of the show simply by tapping the screen when it's gone dark or trying to pull up details on the next episode. You can correct your mistake either because it immediately sends you back into a 60-90 second commercial break that locks the forward / rewind tool. Once you've finished the break and can go back to your place, you have to watch another 60-90 second commercial break to return to your original placement. It's so incredibly frustrating I gave up and went back to the desktop experience. This tool needs more testing and revisions so it's not so easy to trigger.
Inconsistency
by Leek in boat on 2018/10/18 22:12
There is this odd occurrence whenever I use this app and I usually run into a few problems: 1) Sometimes the next episode doesn’t play. It fails to load even if I am connected to the internet, am the only one watching, and have it all paid for. 2) Sometimes, even with good connection, the app doesn’t load up anything. It’ll open but every single tab says there is nothing to see here. 3) In the same vein as failure to load following episodes, there are times where I can’t even watch a completely different show. I could let the inconsistency of following episodes in a series fail to load slide, only a small bit though, but, when I can’t watch anything else for some reason? All of a sudden nothing is watchable? In closing, either shows don’t load or the entire app doesn’t work properly. Inconsistency, sometimes it works really well and then the other half of the time it doesn’t work at all. I have deleted and reinstalled, I have turned off and restarted my phone, I have closed and restarted the app but it still has the same problem. I just end up not watching anything for a bit and do something else; which is great, although, if getting me to do something else was the goal, why pay for an inconsistent service at all?
Need to make it more compatible with iPhone X
by wen_d_ta on 2017/12/16 19:01
Besides everyone’s concern about the sensitivity on the rewind and forward, which I agree is soooooo frustrating, I just got the iPhone X and some shows don’t take up the full screen of the phone which is the whole point of the phone! The shows need to expand through the whole screen. also it would be very helpful if they could but the time as well on the iPhone 7 when you tapped of the screen you would see the time come down and now I have to click out of the app to see what time it is and that’s frustrating as well... I know it’s a process and you’re trying i hope my suggestions help!
Disorganized
by Rebel Ghost on 2018/10/24 21:23
The constant changes to the layout just screams lack of confidence in the product and makes it very difficult to navigate. Please do something about the subpar subtitles do you actually watch and listen to the stories or are you just writing what you want. Fast forwarding and rewinding needs to be adjusted there’s nothing more frustrating then that suspenseful reveal that rolls right into commercial and you try to roll back a few seconds but have to watch another set of commercials. Very frustrating when you have to stop your device mid show only to come back to your place not saved and your going back and forth in the time line to find your spot only to have to watch two to three sets of commercials (I get that this service includes commercials but it’s the navigation that’s frustrating). Don’t be racist the stereotyping and picking what commercials you think I should watch is insulting.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Lots of content — buggy
by kjorieger on 2021/01/01 18:35
Since your newest update, I have to periodically delete and re-download the app. Otherwise the app will not let me search or watch anything I haven’t downloaded. It behaves as though I don’t have an internet connection, though I clearly do and all of my other streaming services work fine. It works fine after deleting and re-downloading the app. Logging out and signing back in, as well as rebooting my device, doesn’t work. Annoying having to delete and redownload several times a day (don’t judge — I’m on vacation and binging a lot of anime). Good job on the amount of anime you have as well as offering subtitled and dubbed versions of each episode. Otherwise I wouldn’t bother dealing with issues!
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.
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
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.
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.
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).
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.

Very Poor Performance
by Bobby Dials on 2021/01/22 07:08
If I could give this 0 stars I would. It regularly has issues connecting/disconnecting when chrome casting. Also has issues fast forwarding & rewinding. Shameful for a brand like Hulu.
Wont play any videos

Hulu + live sports
by p3rupino89 on 2021/01/22 03:40
Hulu SAYS you can watch live sports for an additional monthly fee. TNT is one of the networks that is included in this live sports add on but every time there’s a game on TNT that I want to watch I CANNOT. They’ll instead show a recording AFTER the game is over. So why am I paying over $60/month if I can’t watch the games I want to see that are being shown on TNT?? I might as well pay an additional $10/month and get cable with WAY more channels. Also the commercials are super annoying. I understand having them for the basic plan but also for the live sports plan?? Cmon Hulu please do better by your customers
ads need to be shorter
by Jakaksjsiapq on 2021/01/22 03:35
first of all paying for ads is ridiculous you’re the only streaming service that does it besides cable (lol) ads should be max 30 seconds long one at the start of the episode one at the end. NOT 5 2 minute ads in every episode. ridiculous
Problems
by Andeveryusernameistaken on 2021/01/22 03:20
The app on my phone and my smart tv used to work just fine. Now, it crashes randomly. God help you if you pause a show- it disconnects and starts from the beginning. Even if you scroll over to where you stopped, it will still start from the beginning. You need to get this fixed asap. I’m ready to cancel Hulu and get Apple TV instead.
Poor product
by Jasyn8719 on 2021/01/22 02:51
You would think with all the money this company gets their platform would not freeze and crash.
Horrible

The. Worst. Streaming. Service. Ever!!
Will not download for offline viewing
by Amanda0864 on 2021/01/22 02:00
For months now I’m not able to download any content on my iPad. My iOs is updated and the app is updated and I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled and even chatted with a tech from Hulu. NOTHING will get my shows to download for offline viewing. Every other streaming app downloads videos with no issues. My iPhone downloads them but because the offline content isn’t synced across all device I can’t view them on my iPad. Fix this!
$70
by HaZZaRD01xXx on 2021/01/22 00:55

Crashes daily on my iPad

No Picture in Picture

There is no Picture in Picture functionality like there is in SlingTV. Very disappointing.
Worst most buggy streaming app
by DismantleDesign on 2021/01/21 20:28
Constantly has issues with crashing especially during casting to AppleTV. No other apps have this issue. Constantly has “trouble playing this title.” App always up to date. No other apps have any issues remotely as bad.
Shuts down
by Mal0172 on 2021/01/21 19:25
Constantly shuts down streaming mid-episode. Have to totally shut down before resuming.
Constantly crashes
by Megger Megs on 2021/01/21 14:14
Really fun to have every show stop midway with the notification “we’re having trouble playing this right now...” 🙄 Really? Because it WAS playing just fine. No Picture in Picture for iPhone which is ridiculous since every other streaming service has caught up with this.
Can’t watch new shows
by leinad177777 on 2021/01/21 13:57
How come I can’t just watch new shows that supposedly a new episodes come in I try to watch it it says error 2 hulu pretty trashy right now I don’t see why to even use the app if it doesn’t work
Update
by BadBoyBullyKennel on 2021/01/21 13:52
Why wasn’t Hulu the first television app to allow for Picture in Picture capability????? Hulu still doesn’t allow for Picture in Picture capability can someone please address this issue?????

Glitches
by Krissi562 on 2021/01/21 04:49
Once you click on a show and you try to choose something else there is a glitch. You actually have to leave the app close it out and do that all over again it’s extremely frustrating. There must be a way to fix this because it’s annoying really
Great content!... Sh*ty application
by FootballFreak116 on 2021/01/21 04:19
While watching anything, the app constantly crashes OR loses video OR loses audio (that one's new). This happens on my iPhone, my wife's iPhone, my iPad, my wife's iPad, the Windows app & on the Firefox browser (probably does it on the Chrome browser as well but I use Firefox as my default browser).
Quality
by Hela Odinson on 2021/01/21 03:55
I like watching my shows on my laptop. At first, the show I’m currently watching (Naruto Shippuden) had great quality but towards the end of season 1, the quality was the worst it’s ever been. It’s very pixely. I tried restarting my computer and reconnecting to the wifi and when that didn’t work, I figured if I downloaded the app on my computer, it would help...it didn’t. I checked to see the quality of other shows on my phone and laptop and they were normal. I couldn’t find anywhere else to watch the show so I just sucked it up and continued watching. However, when I checked again today (because it’s slowly eating me up) the quality on the app on my phone was just as bad. Please, PLEASE fix this on both your app and website. I’ve read other reviews with people saying they’ve been having this problem for months and it still isn’t fixed. Thank you.
Constant crashes and buffering
by jcaranza on 2021/01/21 03:47
At first I thought my internet was very slow but it turns out Hulu is just glitchy in itself. It takes me over 10 minutes to be able to reload a show I am watching and most the time it sends me back to the beginning. The app always crashes and gives me error codes saying they could not play the show. It has a great selection for my preference but having to watch a show in intervals of 10+ minutes because of buffering and crash is just not worth it at all. Fix your app Hulu.
Disappointment
by Luck23678 on 2021/01/21 03:22
I’ve been suscribe go Hulu for over a year now. However, for the past two months the app has been really annoying. Glitching and giving errors all the time. Meanwhile other apps connect almost immediately. Also, what happened to the choice of being able to be off the app and still watch the show in a smaller tab? There was no update or anything. Hulu please fix your app is a shame. They have really good shows but it’s not worth the money if you can’t use the app at all.
Fixed the app

I have a quick question why do you guys have commercials it’s kinda annoying I’m sorry for asking just wondering but other than that this app is very good and love it so thanks
Do NOT waste your money
by gurt-yo on 2021/01/21 02:51
Do not waste your money and buy this app. It works less than a quarter of the time, and has very limited selection. On top of that they only really now show shows that they produce. Most of them aren’t even good in a rated poorly. we are not satisfied at all with the service provided or the content.
Update didn’t help
by ka m m on 2021/01/21 02:45

Can you actually make your app work? Hulu is a great service in terms of shows, but your app is god awful. It deletes my downloads randomly, it stops working, the audio gets messed up for downloads, it force closes CONSTANTLY. I’m just tired of having to redownload the same episode of a show forty times just to have the app force close and have the episode be gone AGAIN when I open it back up.
Picture in Picture functionally has been removed

Such an expansive selection!
by Yum yum yeeeeee on 2021/01/20 07:46
IF I WAS ABLE TO WATCH A SINGLE SHOW I WANTED TO WATCH. Why list the show on the platform if EVERY SINGLE TIME I attempt to watch it, I get a smug, “hmm... something’s up... YEAH. CLEARLY. WHATS UP IS THAT I’M SWITCHING TABS TO NETFLIX. This is equivalent to going to McDonald’s and paying for a cheeseburger, and when you drive up to the window they tell you they are out of cheeseburgers, laugh at you, and spit in your face. You are the Bing of streaming services. I don’t think it’s a big ask for a few decent shows to be readily available on the THIRD LARGEST STREAMING SERVICE IN THE GODFORSAKEN WORLD. EVERY TIME I SO MUCH AS SEE THE COLOR LIME GREEN IN PUBLIC I BOIL WITH ANGER REMEMBERING ALL THE TIMES I WANTED TO WATCH BOBS BURGERS AND I WAS SLAPPED IN THE FACE BY HULU’S RUDE ERROR MESSAGES. $12 A MONTH?? YOU SHOULD BE PAYING ME FOR EVEN CONJURING UP THE THOUGHT OF DOWNLOADING YOUR APP. Have a wonderful day.
FIX THE PLAY AND REWIND BUTTONS
by Livie Liv got Swag on 2021/01/20 06:08
Yo fix the play/pause and rewind/fast forward! Every time I go full screen, I can’t use either! And a whole lot of other people are feeling the same! Just put them in the middle! Much less hassle
Maybe do some testing once in awhile?
by WhatAStupidAppThisIs16 on 2021/01/20 06:01
It’s clear that the Hulu app developers have never done a day of testing their lives. This app constantly disconnects from my Chromecast. Fast forward and rewind don’t work. And if you try pause a show through the lock screen widget, it immediately disconnects from the Chromecast resulting in needing to go back to the app, manually reconnect, and then resume playback. Seriously. It’s called testing. Do it sometime.

by Big DW1000 on 2021/01/20 04:03
My network is fine, iOS & app are latest version, running on iPhone se. I used to have to restart the app 3 or 4 times before my show actually comes on. The newest update just plays the ad, then crashes, doesn’t even play my show. Hulu needs to straighten this out or they’re probably gonna lose some valuable customers. It’s pathetic & needs work big time.
Not going to get
by kaleilani on 2021/01/20 03:14
I was just in the Apple App Store going to download Hulu. After reading the comments, a lot of them, I decided I’m not going to. There are so many bad reviews. All about the ads the buffering man just wanted to say. No thank you.

I do love Hulu. The only thing that I’m having trouble with now it’s that it freezes so much . It’s getting frustrating having to close the app and reopen just to scroll . Each time I tap on a show or movie I go back and try to scroll but it’s just freezes . I already deleted the app and redownloaded it but still freezes :/
Bottom of list of all streaming apps
by meow kawaii :3 on 2021/01/19 22:50
Come on Hulu.....you’re HULU! Don’t be so cheap. This app drains my phone battery at an alarming rate. Glitches. Freezes. Can’t do things outside of app while watching a show (this is pretty much standard and available everywhere now). App quality doesn’t match what we pay for the service or the reputation of being a major streaming service.

by Cryptodnut on 2021/01/19 17:36
Anytime I’m streaming through my phone, there is a plethora of issues that after nearly 6 mos continue to happen everyday. Call me crazy but if I’m paying for something shouldn’t it work correctly, isn’t that a staple to business? When I have to restart my phone three times just to pause a show I already started streaming, makes me believe that Hulu doesn’t give a rip about their customer base. Numerous complaints about the same thing on the reviews and Hulu doesn’t even have the decency to comment on the issue. Guess when you have so much money coming in, you can cut corners in today’s market. Fix your crappy software issues Hulu.

Apple TV app needs fixing

Missing episodes
by HeatherOnTheFly on 2021/01/19 06:53
I really like this app and I pay for the commercial free version. However, on the 90210 seasons, there are missing episodes in every season except for the first two seasons. So when you’re into one episode, then it skips two episodes and you don’t know what just happened. I would really like the missing episodes to be added to the seasons of 90210.
Error code : rununk13
by ewwwwweww on 2021/01/19 05:14
I love the idea of this app but for the past year it’s been super buggy. I pay for Hulu, it’s ad free option and HBO inclusion and still when I want to watch my Hulu on my phone, it just doesn’t want to work properly. It crashes after each episode of a show I want to watch and give me an error code saying I have to clear out cache and stuff. I uninstall and reinstall this app several times (as apple no longer has the option to just clear cache and cookies) and the problem persists. Hulu please fix this. It’s obvious it’s not on my end.
Does not do background play
by alyb123456 on 2021/01/19 04:41
For some reason, Hulu used to let me watch things using Picture-in-picture / background play, and when I updated it this feature is now gone. This is extremely frustrating and has made me switch to Netflix. PIP is 100% expected from all streaming apps at this point.

UI is terrible and I need to restart my apple TV every day
by Ougrad1 on 2021/01/19 00:40
***update 1/18/2021*** This app just keeps having problems that require me to restart my apple TV at least 2-3 times a week. This time, I'm judt trying to click on another program on another channel and I got this error code: Rununk13 If you haven't subscribed to Hulu yet, don't. Go with YouTube TV. ***update on 10/13/2020*** There is a massive handshake and service issue on Apple TV. At least 4 days of the week, when I turn on the TV and Hulu for the first time, Hulu takes forever to load, it asks me to re-login, hangs on loading my profile, gives an error message that they can't load the service, or gets to the home screen but no content is viewable. I have 1GB fiber and all my other streaming services works fine. The only thing I can do is restart my apple TV. This is ridiculous and absolutely a Hulu issue. I'M GOING TO SWITCH TO YOUTUBE TV AS THEY DON'T SEEM TO HAVE CAPACITY AND STREAMING ISSUES! -------------------------------------------- So many poor UI/UX decisions in this app. 1. So the UI is annoying in that scrolling down through home content means you have to click. All.the.way. Back. Up. To get to the header menus like Home, my stuff...etc. That's ridiculously slow. Why don't you let us have those menus on the side so we're aren't having to click all the way back up. 2. Also, searching for last viewed content is not accurate. I was watching a documentary on China in one of the on demand categories and went to bed mid way. When I tried to go back to finish, I couldn't find a 'continue watching' section and had to do a search for 'china' since I didn't remember the exact name of the program. 3. Recording doesn't let me record series for live events like F1 racing. I have to go search for each upcoming race and schedule the recording separately. It's 2020, let's make it capable for people to record seasons. 4. when recording show seasons, other providers have smart recording where it doesn't just record reruns but allows you to only record new episodes. Again, it's 2020, I had this with xfinity and att TV from 2016 service. 5. Last but worst of all, in some recent update, I have to restart my apple TV 4K version every. Single. Day. Becuase the Hulu app just spins but never loads. It's always required me to select my user every day but this is new in that the app doesn't loaf. I've deleted and reinstalled but no Bueno. Only thing that works is restarting my apple TV. I checked my Netflix, Amazon prime, att watch TV services and every other app is fine. Please Fix your app for Apple TV!
App is frustrating
by Lopius Magus on 2021/01/19 00:14
Of all my apps, this is the only one I have to constantly delete and reinstall. Then it works for about a day, and then freezes saying “weak or no internet connection” which is hogwash because all my other streaming apps work fine. Uninstalling and reinstalling fixes it. So does restarting the iPad — but again, it´s only Hulu that does this. Fix it please.

Good but casting is flawed
by Havbebskdh1 on 2021/01/18 18:56
I’ve noticed some major flaws when casting shows using chrome cast. The episode listed “up next” usually doesn’t change when moving on to a new episode playing in the player. If I turn off my phone and turn it back on, the app shows it’s connected to the tv, but I don’t see a way to get back to the episode that is currently playing. The app also has issues with the episode list occasionally freezing or just disappearing after moving to the next episode. Please work on these bugs to make casting useable. Edit: casting over airplay is also pretty bad. There is a ton of lag when trying to use any of the video controls. I’ve discovered the only way to use the skip 10 seconds button is to do it from an Apple Watch. For some reason the episode up next does actually change most of the time when using airplay. Maybe ask the developers over at Netflix for some tips on how to make your casting better. Other than the casting having major issues the app is pretty good, I haven’t had problems watching on a device.

I’ve had Hulu for some time now, and they often raise prices unexpectedly - definite con. Live TV streams are terrible - particularly FOX and NFL games - resolution is around 480p and noise artifacts fill the screen. It’s so bad i’ve actually considered going back to cable
the smart tv app messes up constantly
by evehunter24 on 2021/01/18 16:31
Since the interface ipdate 6 months ago, The app crashes while streaming, it doesn’t update/save the last watched episode so I end up having to figure out exactly which episode I am supposed to be on, during continuous streaming of the same show it will go back 3 episodes instead of continuing to the next, it’s also much much slower. Fix it please
No more ads

Cuts out so much
by McKell73 on 2021/01/18 16:15
Every time I watch something on Hulu it cuts out and says we’re having trouble playing this when it was playing perfectly fine it’s so annoying
Always have to force close app.
by Johnathen Jones on 2021/01/18 14:23
The app stops responding when there is a clear internet connection. Only way to make it work is to force close the app. Good content, bad app. Only app on phone I have to do this for.
App Closed Captions Don’t Work
by hoopsta14 on 2021/01/18 13:07
Captions don’t work when streamed on Chromecast. Shows always disconnect and restart when app is reopened.
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
Grayed out?
by RMF 2012 on 2020/11/24 06:52
I like this app a lot. A show I’ve been meaning to rewatch is on it and has all seasons. There’s only a few things I question, and first, is that sometimes it lags and when it comes back the subtitles are on. When I go to the cog button to turn them off, it tells me that they’re not on, that they’re default subtitles and I can’t turn them off. It says “not available” in grayed out font and the button isn’t even green like “on”, yet they are on and I don’t know how to turn them off when everything is grayed out. Normally I don’t have a problem with captions, but for watching on my iPhone, they’re really distracting. Only thing I can do is exit and swipe out of the app completely and wait a bit before opening it back up. Another thing I don’t get is when I turn my phone sideways, in order to pause my show, I have to turn my phone so it’s vertical again bc the ⏪▶️⏩ buttons don’t work when my phone is horizontal, which is strange. I can’t pause or play it, or go back or forward with my phone sideways. I have to put my phone back upright and then pause/play/ffw or rewind it. But other than that it’s a great app, and I’m happy I can rewatch my show.
Poor Convenience?
by Gingeraide on 2021/01/07 19:22
I binge a lot of the shows I watch, and I pay to have no commercials, and yet there’s so many annoying bugs that really make it hard to conveniently use this app, the most prevalent one being that there used to be a widget that would allow you to watch your show as you scrolled/used other apps in your phone, and then suddenly it just disappeared? Without an update, just stopped being able to do that. Really irritating, yet I find that if I have my phone connected to my aux in my car and I pull up the gps while leaving the show running, the audio will continue to play soooo??? Another HORRIBLY ANNOYING thing is when the next episode automatically plays, it will just REPLAY THE SAME EPISODE I WAS JUST WATCHING. And more than half the time, if you press ‘next episode’, it will replay the same episode again anyways. Sometimes the next episode button isn’t there, and I have to restart the app, then go into the series details, scroll to the episode I was on and click the next one manually. This isn’t a rare occurrence, it’s every other episode. Please fix this, I’m going to stop paying so much per month if these simple conveniences aren’t addressed 😞
Make it easier to switch plans!
by wildbellelover on 2019/10/28 00:43
as a new user i of course decided to go with the cheaper plan to “try it out”. i haven’t even gotten thru the first episode of the show i was dying to watch and i’m already so over all of these ads! the option to upgrade isn’t even on the app.. i had to go log in on the web which again requires way more clicks than necessary.. although after reading reviews i guess it’s a good thing it’s not so easy because apparently you have to wait until your current subscription is cancelled which completes a month later!??? OMG! you’d think you would want to make your new subscribers experience the best.. again you should make it easier to upgrade or start everyone out with the BEST plan first.. and then give them the option to switch once the free trial ends.. just saying.. i don’t plan to cancel right away.. i guess i’ll leave it on during the free trial and use the app if i’m that desperate to watch an episode i’m willing to sit thru the same ads over and over every few minutes while trying to get thru an episode. best believe my subscription will be cancelled as soon as the trial is up! so disappointing! ugh!
Never ending issues
by _tinydancer_ on 2020/04/01 06:48
You would think for app with this many subscribers and this high of a subscription rate (for the live tv) the least they could do is make an app that works. The app has near constant glitches. It often plays the audio of one show while a completely different show plays. It never remembers where you left off in a show so you have to watch the same commercial breaks again. It freezes, it crashes. It has the worst UI. You can’t set shows that you’ve recorded to automatically delete after you’ve watched them so you have to do it manually. Even when you record shows, you can only fast forward through the commercials maybe 25% of the time. One show I record never records the whole episode. Even after I delete it, it stays this way. Then miraculously, after a week, the full episode appears. Seems like this app is perpetually a year behind it’s competitors. I really hope someone reads this and looks into all these perpetual issues, but I’m not holding my breath. Get it together. You owe your paying customers more than this.
Commercials and streaming service
by bakachibichan1 on 2020/11/21 07:41
So, for the commercials I don’t mind watching. However if you want to rewind to watch a scene before the commercials break you have to watch 3 minutes of commercials (1 min when you first pass through, 1 min when you rewind, and another minute when you pass through again). It’s kind of annoying that it does that and doesn’t save that you already watched the ad breaks like other video streaming platforms. In addition, I get a lot of problems with the streaming service. Like the episodes won’t load and it tells me to come back later or refresh. I know it’s not my internet because we just upgraded it to a faster speed and out of all the apps on my phone and TV this is the only one that needs to be refreshed. Lastly, episodes. Episodes on phones can only be watched two at a time. Then you have to go to the series list for the next two episodes, which is inconvenient because of the loading issue mentioned above. I love the shows on this app, but really not worth all the bugs and issues.
Good but casting is flawed
by Havbebskdh1 on 2021/01/18 18:56
I’ve noticed some major flaws when casting shows using chrome cast. The episode listed “up next” usually doesn’t change when moving on to a new episode playing in the player. If I turn off my phone and turn it back on, the app shows it’s connected to the tv, but I don’t see a way to get back to the episode that is currently playing. The app also has issues with the episode list occasionally freezing or just disappearing after moving to the next episode. Please work on these bugs to make casting useable. Edit: casting over airplay is also pretty bad. There is a ton of lag when trying to use any of the video controls. I’ve discovered the only way to use the skip 10 seconds button is to do it from an Apple Watch. For some reason the episode up next does actually change most of the time when using airplay. Maybe ask the developers over at Netflix for some tips on how to make your casting better. Other than the casting having major issues the app is pretty good, I haven’t had problems watching on a device.
Could be way better
by Poshafied! on 2020/03/28 03:19
At first I loved this app then after using it for a awhile I found all the glitches. The time it takes to download a movie and all the buffering makes it difficult to even watch a show or a movie. I pay the extra for no commercials but by the time it buffers 25 times through the movie or show.... I give up. It never used to do this so much but now it’s all the time. I go to the other competition movie app and it doesn’t do it on that app so I know it’s not my internet. Did you get rid of someone that knew what they were doing tech wise??? Also they used to change the movie choices more often and have newer movies, even better that the competition, but now the movies are always the same and all OLD movies and horror film it’s boring and sickening. There used to be more choices, what about PBS, what about getting up to date history channel. I’d like to see some historical dramas and movies!! I pay my fee each month and I’m barely getting good use out of the app. I Really think I’ll discontinue my subscription.
Buffering, Glitches, Selection or Movies and Shows, and ADSS
by Alise Leonardo on 2020/06/06 04:52
Buffering and Glitches• The app has a nice selection of shows and tv shows. But it buffers and glitches A LOT!!! This makes it hard and annoying to watch stuff. It took me 20 minutes to get a movie started. I had to constantly restart the app and exit in and out of the app; to stop the glitches. I’ve checked my WiFi and it works perfectly. You would think with the updates it has they would have already fixed the constant buffering, loading, and glitches. It gets to the point where I can’t, don’t, or want to even bother to use the app. Selection of Movies and Shows• Another problem which isn’t that big is the selection of Movies and Shows. Don’t get me wrong it has an “okay” selection but they don’t update it that much. They don’t have much of the movies or shows I’m looking for. A lot of the shows they have aren’t that popular. I find it hard to not rewatch most of the same stuff. I’ve had this app for a year now and have watched mostly everything I’m interested in. Commercials• The commercials and constant ads in the app make me go CRAZY. There are so many commercials. I just want to watch something without commercials every 10-15 minutes. With all this I recommend Netflix or another app to watch stuff. But if you are looking for a specific show that is anti popular this app probably has it. The app has issues where it gets to the point you don’t want to use it.
Great Content. Terrible layout.
by Raffopat on 2020/05/01 01:47
I love the shows on this platform. But I run in to so many problems with quickly starting where I left off after my previous view sessions. It takes me a minute or two to get back to the episode I was watching, WHICH IS A PROBLEM I DONT INTO WITH ANY OTHER PLATFORMS. Very disappointed with the customer inference & the interaction I have had with it so far. The way the system works causes strain which SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING. I am a very tech savvy person too. But this app makes it 10x more strenuous to operate. Using this app opposed to others is a terrible experience.. The only reason I continue paying for this is because the content is great. I am very disappointed with the customer interface being a new customer. Its 2020, hope you know how to fix it. Sheesh. I’ll be sure to be talking to my friend about this too. Hopefully they get this fixed up soon. Lots of potential. Terrible platform performance so far. Don’t even get me started when I get gypped by watching 2 long adds in a row. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
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.
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.
Not Accessibility Friendly
by Thorned Rose Royalty on 2020/09/02 06:34
I’ve only had this app for a half an hour and I’m already so frustrated with myself for downloading it. I’m visually impaired, and while this app states that it has audio description it is impossible to use. I can’t find it anyway err on even the shows and movies it states has it, and when I go to the website to change it like it says I should it just gives me a description of what the feature is supposed to do instead of activating it. On this note, there is no way to find your continue watching. Where you can usually find shows and movies you have left off on other apps, this doesn’t have one, and if it does it need to be more easily accessible, even for beginners. It also didn’t save any of my shows/movies I clicked on that I’m interested in watching. Their “My Stuff” which I woul assume to be like Netflix’s “My LIst” only saved two of my shows I clicked on out of my eleven and one of my movies out of the eight. Over, extremely disappointed in the app and myself for having higher hopes in it.
PLEASE FIX, APP WONT OPEN,CRASHES EVERY TIME I OPEN IT!!!!
by Jewel Divine on 2020/04/28 18:24
How strange I write a review but App Store won’t post it‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️😡😡😡😡😡 Ever since latest update of week of April 20th 2020, the app crashes every time I click to open it, it won’t open it closes fast, faster than in the blink of an eye!!! This is a paid subscription that I pay more than $130+ a month for, could the developers please fix this asap!! Why should it be necessary to leave a review and never receive a reply and for it to come this far? Don’t you get paid to supervise the application enough to know there’s this huge bug or glitch whatever it is that it won’t let the PAYING CUSTOMER watch the programming without the unnecessary stress?!?!? Will this issue ever be fixed?!?! Going on a week now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t think you want your customers cancelling, let us know what’s going on, update us I think we have a right to know what’s going on and not be in a loophole!!!!! Way too many ads, I pay for Ad Free TV and it’s way too many repeated ads over again!!!! Kids filter should be updated for safer TV!!!!!!
Several Problems
by Queen1sa on 2020/09/04 15:05
My biggest issue with the app is that certain episodes won’t download. For example, episodes 1-3 of a show might download then 4 will refuse to. For someone who relies primarily on downloads, this is a pain. Also, some episodes are missing entirely from certain shows. This may just be a copyright issue, but with all the other issues this app has, you never know. More recently, I’ve been having a problem where episodes I’ve downloaded won’t play. I end up having to close the app and open it again just to make the episode play. And often it won’t save my progress if I stop in the middle. Finally, when I try to remove things from My List, some shows won’t leave. It says they’re not in there anymore, but they still appear in the feed. Honestly, the only reason I’m giving this app any stars is that I enjoy the content. I would be much happier, however, if they could fix these problems.
Worst streaming app by far
by Ibrad14 on 2018/06/06 12:24
I should not have to login every time I open the app… Even seconds later after I navigate out of it, when I go back it says there was an error and I need to login again. I still do not like how new shows do not always pop up to the front of my queue. There might be a show that I’m just not in the mood to watch and there are a couple of unwatched episodes… And that stays at the top of my queue. That’s fine until something else new or comes along it should bump it down. I was just getting used to the moronic layouts when all of these other things start happening, I thought we’ll maybe it’s because it’s not an updated app. So I cannot hear only time it just update it. Is there no quality assurance checks before and after you get released? Is there no focus group? Is there no research of what other streaming apps are doing and doing well?
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...
Amazing App
by Cocolattebanana on 2020/08/28 04:00
I find this an amazing app and do not understand why there are so many bad reviews. There are tons of shows to watch of many different genres Cartoons, Dramas, Action, Comedy and so much more. I’m sorry if you didn’t choose the right plan. There have been no troubles for me except one thing for kids I find it annoying that you can’t select a age until 13 my 10 year old can only watch shows for little kids and has been begging me to let her have TV-14 but that has inappropriate content for her. So please please make you be able to do different age ratings for kids under 13 such as TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, and TV-PG. I find this a problem because my daughter can only watch kid shows. I also caught my 4 year old watching sailor moon and I am positive this is not age appropriate for her. PLEASE CHANGE THIS.
SO MANY GLITCHES!
by 🌸❤️❤️🌸❤️❤️🌸 on 2020/05/22 05:03
Great app, but there are a lot of bugs that need to me fixed. First off, the skip, I tried to resume an episode I was watching and every time I would go to skip back to where I was, it would restart the episode. Also, the ad problem needs to be fixed, it keeps playing the ads, then replaying them. Like it would have the ads run as normal, then replay them for no reason. Also there needs to be an easier way to change plans. Skipping is rather annoying as well because every time I skip forward or back it sends me back to where I was! It has even started to black out my screen at certain points in movies and TV shows. I’m very upset about this because all I want to do is watch a show, and it won’t let me! Please fix all of this!
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
$5.99 for ads and terrible stream quality
by didntlikeit on 2019/09/20 17:02
This app has great content to be able to stream. But I hate that this app has prioritized ads over streaming connection. The app lags out almost 1/5 times I’m trying to watch something after an ad plays. I would say it might me my WiFi or data connection but Netflix doesn’t have this issue at all. All ads play perfectly but the content when streaming times out all the time. I pay $5.99 for tv like experience with all this content and the only real experience I’m getting is ads that I’m apparently paying for. I’m ending my subscription because this company puts advertising over quality of streaming which is what I had hoped to pay for. I don’t mind ads here and there. But I don’t want to watch ads every time because the app crashed on the streaming connection with pop up errors because only ads work. The app never crashes during an advertisement. Why is that?
Please fix....
by Moni.Moore on 2018/09/01 01:06
I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo
by tilleyrs on 2017/10/14 06:16
I'm the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it's to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your "swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards" function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
Bugs
by AllieH1008 on 2017/09/15 02:07
Every time I try to open the app on my phone, it says "something is wrong: try again." Extremely frustrating. I've tried reinstalling and updating it, and it's the same problem. It won't work. Update: the previous problem has gone away, but with the new update, I accidentally fast forward my show probably about ten times in each sitting somehow. Its extremely easy to do. I end up watching extra commercials because of this, and then when I try to find my spot again, I have to sit through a second set of commercials if I click multiple times looking for the right scene. It adds a LOT of commercials to my viewing time. I also have similar concerns to others reviews, as it used to be easy to find my shows and find new things I'd be interested in, but now it's not as intuitive, and it's more difficult to quickly find things.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You Really Need To Let People Take Screenshots
by Batman Kittyface on 2019/05/04 02:04
Obviously whoever added the feature which makes the screen completely black every time you take a screenshot has little to no experience with the internet. No content pirate has ever thought “ah, yes, i will capture this movie frame by frame and then splice these frames together, then record the audio separately and dub it over my newly spliced video and hope it syncs up”. That’s ludicrous. The inability to take screenshots not only serves no purpose for the actual creators of the movies or TV shows, it’s also a great hinderance to people who produce content like fanart and fan theories who would typically use such screenshots as references. By not allowing screenshots, you are actually turning legitimate customers of your content towards illegal streaming sites because This Is The Only Way To Take Screenshots Of Our Favourite Shows And Movies. No one wins. It’s frankly kind of bizarre that anyone ever thought this was a good idea.
Terrible forward and rewind functionality
by Terrible forward / rewind tool on 2017/10/04 00:53
The latest update rolled out an upgrade to the forward and rewind tool. On the surface it seems like a lot of fun and simple to use, but in practice the new tool is a nightmare. It is incredibly easy to accidentally rewind to the beginning or end of the show simply by tapping the screen when it's gone dark or trying to pull up details on the next episode. You can correct your mistake either because it immediately sends you back into a 60-90 second commercial break that locks the forward / rewind tool. Once you've finished the break and can go back to your place, you have to watch another 60-90 second commercial break to return to your original placement. It's so incredibly frustrating I gave up and went back to the desktop experience. This tool needs more testing and revisions so it's not so easy to trigger.
Inconsistency
by Leek in boat on 2018/10/18 22:12
There is this odd occurrence whenever I use this app and I usually run into a few problems: 1) Sometimes the next episode doesn’t play. It fails to load even if I am connected to the internet, am the only one watching, and have it all paid for. 2) Sometimes, even with good connection, the app doesn’t load up anything. It’ll open but every single tab says there is nothing to see here. 3) In the same vein as failure to load following episodes, there are times where I can’t even watch a completely different show. I could let the inconsistency of following episodes in a series fail to load slide, only a small bit though, but, when I can’t watch anything else for some reason? All of a sudden nothing is watchable? In closing, either shows don’t load or the entire app doesn’t work properly. Inconsistency, sometimes it works really well and then the other half of the time it doesn’t work at all. I have deleted and reinstalled, I have turned off and restarted my phone, I have closed and restarted the app but it still has the same problem. I just end up not watching anything for a bit and do something else; which is great, although, if getting me to do something else was the goal, why pay for an inconsistent service at all?
Need to make it more compatible with iPhone X
by wen_d_ta on 2017/12/16 19:01
Besides everyone’s concern about the sensitivity on the rewind and forward, which I agree is soooooo frustrating, I just got the iPhone X and some shows don’t take up the full screen of the phone which is the whole point of the phone! The shows need to expand through the whole screen. also it would be very helpful if they could but the time as well on the iPhone 7 when you tapped of the screen you would see the time come down and now I have to click out of the app to see what time it is and that’s frustrating as well... I know it’s a process and you’re trying i hope my suggestions help!
Disorganized
by Rebel Ghost on 2018/10/24 21:23
The constant changes to the layout just screams lack of confidence in the product and makes it very difficult to navigate. Please do something about the subpar subtitles do you actually watch and listen to the stories or are you just writing what you want. Fast forwarding and rewinding needs to be adjusted there’s nothing more frustrating then that suspenseful reveal that rolls right into commercial and you try to roll back a few seconds but have to watch another set of commercials. Very frustrating when you have to stop your device mid show only to come back to your place not saved and your going back and forth in the time line to find your spot only to have to watch two to three sets of commercials (I get that this service includes commercials but it’s the navigation that’s frustrating). Don’t be racist the stereotyping and picking what commercials you think I should watch is insulting.
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.
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.

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!
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.
Lots of content — buggy
by kjorieger on 2021/01/01 18:35
Since your newest update, I have to periodically delete and re-download the app. Otherwise the app will not let me search or watch anything I haven’t downloaded. It behaves as though I don’t have an internet connection, though I clearly do and all of my other streaming services work fine. It works fine after deleting and re-downloading the app. Logging out and signing back in, as well as rebooting my device, doesn’t work. Annoying having to delete and redownload several times a day (don’t judge — I’m on vacation and binging a lot of anime). Good job on the amount of anime you have as well as offering subtitled and dubbed versions of each episode. Otherwise I wouldn’t bother dealing with issues!
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.
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
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.
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.
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).
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.
