P-EDU106 - Day 2 (This Time)
by Tc11613 on 2020/07/10 02:21
I am going to post every day that this doesn’t work so I can get $2 per day credit. It wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t the second time and the first time was at least a week.
Fix this now!!! RIGHT NOW!!!
by I❤️Amelia on 2020/07/10 02:14
Every time since I updated this app it has continued to kick me out after I’ve clicked on it!!! Fix this app now It’s doo doo Make it work
Can’t watch everything
by gdjesvdjw on 2020/07/10 02:07
I like the app I would give it a five star but it would be better if you could actually watch everything that is on the app I would give it a five star if that wasn’t a problem
Not good yet
by SadThisAppDoesntWork on 2020/07/10 01:49
Navigating the Hulu app for iPhone has always been difficult. Content is highly filtered for the user giving the impression there is far less things to watch than what’s actually available when casually browsing. The app still doesn’t switch between landscape and portrait mode when rotating in the browse page
What did you do
by AliceCooperFanAnthony on 2020/07/10 01:42
The new format of the app is ugly and congested. The old format was great, easy to use, intuitive, and easy on the eyes. This new one makes it so hard to find something new to watch when I’m fatigued on shows I’ve seen.
Why pay?
by JaketheRobloxGamer on 2020/07/09 23:28
This is annoying why do I have to pay change it now or I’ll delete this rn
I HATE IT SO MUCH >:(

No longer works on Apple TV
by filmkzp on 2020/07/09 21:56
Since the new release i have to uninstall and reinstall each time I want to watch Hulu on Apple TV. Very frustrating.
Blah
by f8tr on 2020/07/09 20:32
Crashes Constantly!!! Errors. Constantly!!! Freezes... repeats same episodes back to back. Skips episodes... 👎🏼 worst ugh!! Updated today 5-19-20. SAME ISSUES!! ... 5-20-20. New errors!!! 😡. 5-21-20. More!!! Updated 6-1-20. Now the app is WORSE than before!!!🙈 updated app 7-9-20. Crashed. Episode errors!!
Great app but MAJOR problems.
by 😊/😡bubble 8610 on 2020/07/09 20:18
You can watch some great shows like Rick and Morty and Bob’s Burger’s, but the ads are INSANE. Most of the times the ads take about 80-90 seconds which is HORRIBLE.
Hulu Subscription Plans
by Tim Goyette on 2020/07/09 20:17
So I’m just finding out that dropping the “ad free” option also made me lose the ability to download movies and TV episodes to my iPad. I pay $60 a month for Hulu + Live TV. Someone that just has Hulu (Ad Free) for $12 a month can download. This doesn’t seem fair that I’m paying approximately $48 more per month and I don’t get the option to download. I may have to rethink my TV subscription... maybe go back to Xfinity.
Constantly crashes update better
by Mr. Fluffs on 2020/07/09 19:43
It has gotten much better the grid however on Apple TV is terrible you need to be able to swipe back-and-forth between channels this is known
Apple TV hangs again and again
by AshSax on 2020/07/09 19:22
For the last few weeks, it just does not open and keeps loading. Then you have to remove the app from Apple TV and reinstall (and log-in again) to make it work. Then this happens again almost every day. It is really frustrating. It works well when you are able to open though.
Not working on Apple TV
by NicknamesAreSoStupid on 2020/07/09 15:24
Seems to be fine on my iPad but not on my apple tv, which is the only way I use Hulu. It’s been 3 days, please fix, this is my main tv app.
Adds...
by cant say😁 on 2020/07/09 15:11
Omg o love this app but the AMOUNT Of ADS its SO annoying i was just watching something and the an ad popped up and i thought “ok its only one add” but its was three adds and more cause it happened right now so idk how many more adds will pop up so please fix that its the on issue for now but other then that the app is great
Wish I could put zero

PLEASE STOP YOU MONSTERS 4 ADS IS TOO MUCH AND IM NOT PAYING 12$ FOR NO ADS YOU DEMONS AND DEVILS I DONT CARE ABOUT YOU’RE LIBRARY YOU MONEY HUNGRY JERKS EVEN YOUTUBE HAS LESS ADS >:(
Have to delete/reinstall daily
by Andy Martini on 2020/07/09 12:57
Good luck. Every day I have to delete and reinstall the app on Apple TV. And Hulu only wants to say it’s Apple’s fault. This is their answer all the time. Well this or is your internet fast enough. I’ve never seen a company with such a lack of accountability. But that’s OK because YouTube TV has the same channels and a couple more that Hulu doesn’t have, live TV and the same price. So Hulu...you’re on the short list to be replaced. Starting my 7 day free trial today to see how YouTube is compared to you.
I would give Hulu 5 stars BUT..
by SlimeGodKing on 2020/07/09 07:30
The app has been down for nearly three days on my phone! I keep getting token error 5. Please fix this ASAP it isn’t fair that I’m paying for an app that doesn’t work.
Update? What update?
by LK!!!!! on 2020/07/09 06:01
This app is the glitchiest app on the market. After every update, it takes at least a week before you can actually use the app without it closing out REPEATEDLY. Glad the app is free, but frustrated that I can’t actually watch the shows I’m paying for. Honestly, don’t waste your time with the app, just watch on your browser.
Why would I pay for commercials?
by Mitchregal on 2020/07/09 04:53
Why would I pay money to watch commercials?
Fake ad
by Gucciiphone on 2020/07/09 04:23
Stop advertising shows you say you have but don’t have the newest episodes. Why do I wanna watch season 1 for and I only have a week then you take it off? Wow
I was watching naruto shippuden and at 70 episodes it’s only Japanese not English which is sad
by c4320n on 2020/07/09 03:11
Pls fix this
App doesn’t work. Only 1 movie doesn’t open
by UmMeral on 2020/07/09 02:26
I can’t believe after paying for more than a year I just wanted to watch 1 movie at Hulu . Sideways!! It says everywhere only Hulu has it . I have Netflix, amazon prime , hbo subscriptions and on top them Hulu And only one movie I wanted to watch. Sideways is not on Hulu at Apple TV. Their app is not opening at my iPhone with an error page I canceled my subscription. I pay $4 a time for only 1 movie I want to watch at somewhere else
Episode bugs
by Pig Go Rawr on 2020/07/09 02:20
Normally I would give a good rating however, after the many recent updates, I can no longer choose a specific episode I want to watch. I.E. If I started to watch a series on a different streaming platform then went over to Hulu, I’m forced to re-watch every episode rather than choosing the episode I had left off on. This an unreasonable bug that I certainly hope isn’t a feature to the app.
got worse
by Donut Demitra on 2020/07/09 02:19
i used to be able to do picture in picture about 2 weeks ago and now i can’t and i am very upset about it :(
👺👎
by 2nitch9in3 on 2020/07/09 02:13
I honestly hate ‘‘tis new update were the screen changed. Only one problem, I can’t even press pause while watching and have to swipe down to the lock screen on my iPhone to pause then play.
Apple TV App constantly freezes, crashes, and looses connection
by AZRed89 on 2020/07/09 01:37
The app constantly freezes, crashes, and loses connection on Apple TV. Just a heads up, your competitor Netflix Apple TV app doesn’t have this problem.
Ads
by Nuun1006 on 2020/07/09 01:33
I don’t mind the ads but please stop putting it right before the end credits so I don’t waste my time watching them just to get to the credits!
Really disappointed
by Lola Larissa r USA on 2020/07/09 01:23
Was thrilled that I finally got Hulu but my old iPad is incompatible due to having IOS 8.3.5. I wanted a bigger screen compared to my iPhone's small screen. It would be a 4 star on my phone but a 1 due to this issue. I hope and wish they could make it compatible and work.
Buggy with AppleTV
by Hfdtsshjcfrjlfr on 2020/07/09 01:17
I really enjoy the content on Hulu, both old programs and originals. I don’t understand, however, with all the resources behind the app, why it functions so poorly with AppleTV. Almost every time I try to watch something, the app won’t load, or I get a message “trouble loading content, try later”. If I go to a different app, no problem. Usually restarting the AppleTV resolves the issue, but why do I have to go through this so often?
TOO MANY ADS
by Upsetpersonvvvv on 2020/07/09 01:00
What’s the point of paying, If there’s going to be way too many long ads. This is ridiculous remove the ads and or make them short... I can’t even enjoy the shows in peace!!!
Back to having to delete each day
by BulldogThunder on 2020/07/08 23:33
The problem of having to delete and reload the app daily on AppleTV is back. That is the only way you can get it to load. Had the problem before, but now it is back.
Appletv version
by Mdjx4 on 2020/07/08 22:25
The AppleTv version will not launch, all I get is the spinning circle. Yesterday I deleted and reinstalled it and then it worked fine. Today however after deleting the app and attempting to reinstall all I got in the App Store was the spinning circle awaiting install. Please fix this I watch the Hulu app everyday but the problems are getting old quick.
Issues with latest update
by Yes2pizza on 2020/07/08 22:25
Since the update a week ago, I haven’t been able to get the app to cast to the TV. Since that’s 99% of the way I use Hulu it makes it hard to justify continuing the subscription :(
Terrible
by ligmanutzp on 2020/07/08 22:23
Ur streaming on smart tvs and the connection when doing it is terrible. It makes me exit 5 times and resume before i can finish an episode of a show. Do better.
About Hulu
by bsnsiskskanwbavsuakqqaldjcchdn on 2020/07/08 22:00
Hulu is a nice app for shows and movies.But the there are so many adds after 5 minutes there is a 80 seconds adds!
Not user friendly
by Stonesthrowzzz on 2020/07/08 21:34
I just switched from Fubo & am very disappointed by this app. Too many items in the menu & too hard to navigate to the live tv that you want. My stuff isn’t very helpful. This app really needs to be reorganized to enable easier navigation
Ehhh
by absssssster on 2020/07/08 21:14
Well it glitches a lot and not that many options i really wanted but also it replays episodes i already watched which is really annoying >:( but in want all episodes of drake and josh and icarly
Ads
by Bettyrob180 on 2020/07/08 21:10
I love Hulu and it’s wide range of shows and movies but there are just so many ads and they are so long, I already may for Hulu so why should I have to go through ads?!?
It's not working login
by estrella017 on 2020/07/08 20:13
Horrble
Currently unavailable
by AlmindJoy on 2020/07/08 19:41
I’ve noticed that some of my favorite shows are “currently unavailable” now I don’t know if that’s because your adding new episodes or if it didn’t do well in the U.S. Just by reading that you know it’s anime I’m talking about. I just started watching it and I love it but I now cannot watch it and that makes me sad. :(
Why i hate this app.
by Venmo is whack on 2020/07/08 19:37
Why did i get this? It because i believed there will be NO Japanese and if so i can turn it off but nooooo this stupid app wont let me and it frustrates me that i have to deal with Japanese even though i can pit on subtitles I.HATE.READING!!!!!!!!! But still it will let me see the season i love so if you just fix that one thing and let us turn OFF any language we dont want then i will give it 5 stars but until then i give it one star.
Hulu headache
by Josy Posey on 2020/07/08 19:31
Tired of having to re enter from the start every time I try to watch Hulu.
Good app but
by Created dread on 2020/07/08 19:21
The problem I have I is with Hulu live is the Commercials get more commercials with it and pay more if you don’t want extra commercial if you pay for it but other than that it’s OK app
The New Update
by jensihg on 2020/07/08 18:48
The new update is horrible. I can no longer pause or unpause, and there is a set amount of 10 second skips. The app has also been going back anywhere from 10 seconds, to a couple minutes, before where I last watched- even before the latest update.
This app is awful
by Avalanche Carter on 2020/07/08 17:53
This app is awful for a company as large as Hulu and for streaming. I Ike to use it when I’m working instead of leaving the tv on. Even though I am two feet away from my wireless router it constantly tells me that WiFi is weak and needs to be refreshed. I have to power down my phone in order to get it to work. This morning I’ve had to do it three times already. Hulu- DO BETTER
Dumbest streaming service ever
by dhejr47 on 2020/07/08 17:21
Pay to watch commercials...and not just one or two for a show. Think 90 seconds every 10 minutes. It’s a joke. You watch more commercials than regular tv. Oh, want to rewind after just watching 90 seconds of ads? You’re going to have to watch those commercials all over. Why would anyone like this? I unsubscribed in first 3 days.
Keeping having to uninstall and re-install
by Dtyoung2383 on 2020/07/08 17:14
We’ve had this for about a month now, and really like it, but recently when we open it on our Apple TV, it won’t open. We’ll delete it, and then re-install it, and it opens.
Latest TV app
by Suddenrush on 2020/07/08 17:05
I have to login frequently. Makes viewing not so convenient. I do not have the same issues in iPhone app that I do on tvOS. Please focus on the quality of the tvOS app.
Better than Netflix but still buggy
by CLTguy5 on 2020/07/08 16:42
There is a delay in the menu area. Also if we turn off the TV and forget to take Apple TV back to the main screen, Hulu will have the spinning wheel and will pend such that you need to restart the Apple TV.
Hulu and Toshiba Googlecast
by arimtimtimo on 2020/07/08 13:32
The last war update has caused Hulu to freeze when trying to cast to a Toshiba Googlecast tv. I’ve reset both and redownloaded the app, still no luck connecting the tv to Hulu with cast. It’s not the TV or the WiFi like I’m sure I’ll be told by customer support. I can cast no problem with Netflix, Youtude and Amazon Prime. Not sure what Hulu has done but it needs to be looked at.
Can’t cast to tv
by xoxonatasha244 on 2020/07/08 06:31
New update has caused my iPhone to not cast to my tv , I can play videos just fine on my phone but then I can’t skip ads . The Hulu logo will cast to my tv but will not let me play anything . Very frustrating since my tv is only used for cast , I have resorted to using Netflix which has nothing I watch on it . FIX NOW PLEASE !!!!
immature
by ixoloxi on 2020/07/08 05:42
too limited in content
Great shows but a few problems.
by Soccer player 999999 on 2020/07/08 05:37
It has a bunch of awesome shows to watch. But I recently changed a kid’s account to a regular one on one device but it wouldn’t load on my other device, now we can’t watch Hulu on the iPad! The other things are that there are a bunch of ads and it glitches a lot!
This app never works
by Srivatsava on 2020/07/08 05:21
I have never been this frustrated with any streaming app. Everytime it gives “Hmm something up logout and try” I logout and it never logins me in again. Weird error saying please check internet, yes dude I have internet all my 200 apps working except this trash. Same thing happens on iPad and Apple TV. Even on google people said delete the app and reinstall it. That works sometimes. Why should I have to go through all this trouble to watch a show on this app. If the developers are reading this , you guys need better skill set because your app doesn’t work. Nobody cares about the color coding and effects it needs to serve the prime purpose. Hope they learn and fix this with next update.
Hulu keeps getting worse
by Youth Minister startin in 2019 on 2020/07/08 04:07
Can’t live stream and support page leads to a rabbit hole! Ready to change. Any suggestions?
It’s slow
by Giananas25 on 2020/07/08 03:31
Hulu is great but it’s always glitching and it’s SLOW it doesn’t save my recently watched at times and it’s honestly annoying
Ads whyyyy that much?
by Engjelllll on 2020/07/08 03:04
How can a 40 minutes movie have 11 ads on it with 2 minutes what is wrong with the app
Awful
by ssdarling94 on 2020/07/08 02:43
This app is terrible. It crashes all the time. I could never watch any show to the end without it crashing. It is not my internet connection. No matter the internet connection the app crashes. I feel that I’ve waited my money and will be canceling. I’ve given this app a chance for the past year and a half but it only gets worse. I’m done with it. It never gets better - only worse Update: I switched to sling. Bye Hulu.
Okay
by Br1tt87 on 2020/07/08 01:57
I love how many shows are available, but it is extremely frustrating when the app constantly shuts down and won’t load my shows.
Every day I need to reinstall this app
by Furb12 on 2020/07/08 01:53
Unlike every other app on my device I need to reinstall this one every day I plan to use it. When I try to watch something it spends some time loading and the says I have a weak connection; I’m unable to play anything. My connection is fine and other streaming apps work with no issues. Even without this nagging problem the user experience feels clunkier than the other streaming apps I mentioned. Some of the programming is quite good so for now I’ll keep using it but at some point I’ll probably cancel my subscription unless this app is fixed.
South Park
by jeuss p on 2020/07/08 01:30
They took of South Park that’s an automatic 1 Star for Hulu I’m deleting it
Shuts down and will not sign on
by Dyc4deafofmex on 2020/07/08 00:44
Have a continual issue with Hulu not wanting to sign in or it shutting down.... have check for updates on iPhone and app but nothing and still have a lot of bugs
Randomly playing some episodes in Spanish...
by TAWoody84 on 2020/07/08 00:34
When starting my next episode of Sherlock from the Apple tv TV app, starting this week, hulu starts playing the Spanish version of the show for some reason even though I have English selected for the language. Never happened before this week. Weird, now today its working fine so far. Nope, back to Spanish.
App just spins on launch
by bc88888 on 2020/07/08 00:22
App doesn’t open to home screen when launched on AppleTV since the last update. I have to force close the app and reopen to get it to work.
Better than Netflix
by Just_trust_buster on 2020/07/08 00:10
My whole life I have had Netflix and Netflix is good and all but once you’ve watch everything on there it’s like what now? Hulu has so many shows that it’s impossible to ever get bored with it. The only thing they could fix is pricing it is a little expensive but at the same time kind of worth it.
too many adds!
by ILikekittiesmeowmeow on 2020/07/07 23:48
whenever i try to watch a movie or show, there are like 5 90 second long adds that you can’t skip. it’s so irritating. i wouldn’t recommend hulu. use netflix.
Ready to switch
by 2bglmom on 2020/07/07 22:59
It’s nice to have live streaming and favorite shows, but not when it doesn’t work! Since the latest update, there have been numerous times when the app doesn’t load. I delete it and reinstall and works until the next time I want to use it. We have had other issues as well where it keeps repeating the last few seconds. I should not have to keep deleting and reinstalling to grt this to work. The subscription just renewed, but for the next month, I’ll be looking for another streaming app unless you can get this one to work! It’s not worth the trouble for the price!
Ads
by gxfnf on 2020/07/07 22:25
The app has 3 minute ads with no skip you have to whatch the whole ad it’s so annoying.
Anime
by keep it up hulu on 2020/07/07 22:19
The anime is good the only thing Hulu has to is the dubs to the anime.The movies are good they got some great movies I recommend this app.
Update is crap
by Lnasty80 on 2020/07/07 21:30
The play pause buttons no longer work, as well as the seek and rewind buttons after this latest update. Fix now please!
Garbage Application
by Slicsolescalvo on 2020/07/07 18:54
If you are watching a show it’ll make you rewatch advertisements like crazy. For example, you are watching a show and there’s an ad at 10:50 and you want to rewatch something that happened at 10:45 you’ll be FORCED TO WATCH AN ADVERTISEMENT TWO TIMES. Pathetic, HULU already charges you to watch their shows. Plus they love to ADD ON 10 ads per episode, pathetic. They are money hungry animals, stick to the Netflix app. F Hulu
Recent update is awful
by The Reader is now the Listener on 2020/07/07 18:11
I’ve used Hulu for a while with little issues. It’s occasionally glitchy but nothing terrible. But since the update I can’t pause, play, rewind or fast forward. None of the buttons are responsive except full screen and exit. To pause a show I have to fully exit the app. Then reopen, re-find what I was watching and click on it again just to get it to play. Tried restarting and re-downloading, still have the same problem. I’m paying for a service I can barely use. Very frustrating. Please fix?
Paying 11$ for trash
by stephy705_ on 2020/07/07 16:26
I payed for the Hulu with no ads cause my gosh the ads get old really fast , every 5 minutes there’s some sort of add placement. I’ve had to delete my app twice already all because it doesn’t want to play on my phone at all. I’ve only had this app for two weeks and it gives me so many problems. Like how am I going to pay for the better quality Hulu when I can’t even watch the shows on there due to some ‘error’. They need to fix it, cause I’m about to cancel this subscription and go put my money where I can actually pay for something of quality and be able to watch my shows without having to delete it and download it every time I want to watch something.
I love Hulu but this app needs work
by matisonhnsn on 2020/07/07 14:53
I love Hulu and typically watch on a smart tv or Roku and have no issues, but whenever I try viewing on my phone things get weird. App will randomly shut down and sometimes has extremely long buffering issues. My biggest complaint is that it won’t always recall where I left off so I’m stuck fast forwarding through an episode to find the spot I’m at.
Good but why
by morecupcake on 2020/07/07 14:28
Uta no Prince Sama season 3 I can’t find I watched it and the next thing I know when I wanted to watch it again it was gone can you please put it back on Hulu? Please put it bake on Hulu! Now that I updated it I can’t watch anything! I can’t watch nothing right now is there a problem with Hulu!
Pause and +20 seconds are gone in v7.3

In v7.3 I can no longer pause. Also, I can only move forward in 10 second increments instead of 20. I didn’t have these problems before the v7.3 upgrade. When Hulu fixes this, I’ll change my rating back to 5stars, because it was a fine app before.
Terrible service
by The beez on 2020/07/07 11:19
Don’t even try connecting with them if you have a problem. This is my only recourse that won’t drain several hours of my life. Don’t add on other services either - better off buying them individually to avoid ads.

I really enjoy Hulu but my problem is why is there different prices for “No Adds” or to have access to every thing in the app that’s why I enjoy Netflix better and Disney no adds access to every thing in app
Good but some glitches
by snxbdms on 2020/07/07 05:02
I like the new update but on my phone I won’t let me pause and sometimes when I go to the next episode button I click on the screen and all I see is the bar but who cares.
App works 40% of the time now
by joyprof on 2020/07/07 04:59
I never used to have problems, but the past two months, I’m constantly faced with error messages — on both phone and iPad. What the hell, Hulu?
Great app and great to watch shows and movies

Why commercials when I’m paying for the app !!
by anoying man on 2020/07/07 00:17
Why I have to see 30 seconds in comercial when we are paying for the app that’s not ok amazon Netflix Disney plus and many other apps when you pay 5 or 20 dlls is no comercial is just annoying !!!
Usual 2nd best
by Blueontarget1 on 2020/07/06 23:04
Always behind others, can’t listen while on lock screen, while unlocked the slightest touch changes the program, trying to figure out what I’m paying for with this service, visually the whole platform stinks.
Issues with Apple TV
by tallboy21 on 2020/07/06 22:42
For the last two weeks, I’ve had to delete and reload the Hulu app on Apple TV to get it to work. Annoying and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Thank you.
Live TV freezes/crashes constantly
by Beckab1077 on 2020/07/06 22:14
I just added Live Tv to my Hulu subscription, but it freezes and crashes at least 10 times a day. Not sure if this is just the live experience or if the Hulu app having some issues.... either way, it’s SUPER annoying to pay over $50 a month for crashing nonsense. If I wanted that, I’d go back to sling. They have a ways to go before this is worth the money.
Constantly Freezes Requiring Reboot
by BJK40915 on 2020/07/06 22:14
Cannot watch more than a few episodes and then the app freezes when trying to go back to “home” or “my stuff”—have to turn iPad off and on again (and re-enter passcode, set up iPencil, etc.) to get the app to work again. Others I know say the same thing happens to them. Fix this bug for God’s sake!
Hulu :(
by jrcagaan on 2020/07/06 21:57
This is good but i think is not worth it because the episode is not complete they didn’t release the lates episode. I recommend u guys to watch on google for free just search “kissanime” you don't need to worry about where did u find the lates episode cuz it’s automatically pop out the new episode. I will stop my subscription to hulu hehe. :)
Ads
by IsaiahBusta on 2020/07/06 21:24
I hate the fact that I have to pay more to get rid of ads, and I hate the fact that when I rewind, I have to rewatch the ads and not skip them the second time. Horrible system, it’s better to get cable than this crap
Same advertising keeps repeating over and over
by smokeylq on 2020/07/06 20:41
NBC Sports is a scam. All other channels work just fine
Bring back the old UI
by MP Killah on 2020/07/06 18:01
I love Hulu. It’s become my primary streaming service. But the latest update with the new iPad UI/HUD is terrible. Please bring back the old version where the play/pause, skip back, and skip forward buttons were in the center of the screen and you could hold to find your exact position. This new version is so counterintuitive and such a pain in the ass to use. BRING BACK THE OLD VERSION!!
Latest update a mess
by Hickory Hill on 2020/07/06 17:09
Update on Apple TV has left me with no working app for the last week. Finally updated my iPhone app this morning and now I have working app there. Neither will get past the logo. There’s no point in paying money for a streaming service we can’t access.
Bring back pause button in middle of screen
by All Good on 2020/07/06 14:29
Good app but latest update moved the play/pause button from middle of the screen where it was incredibly convenient, to a tiny little button in the bottom corner of the screen. It makes the app much more difficult to operate. Fix it please!
awesome app
by yeet_Jose on 2020/07/06 13:28
i love this app but one main problem is that you guys have to many ads is something get on my nerves. Can you guys at least reduce amount of ads please and Thank you :)
Hulu seriously
by anime_! on 2020/07/06 09:01
Too many ads, and season 2 of my hero academia wasn’t even a full season and the 3rd season was all sub no dub BUT it still has a nice layout
Doesn’t work

Keeps Crashing
by Green_eyed_sconiegirl on 2020/07/06 05:39
The past few days the Hulu app keeps crashing. Hopefully the issue gets fixed or I will cancel my account. I wish I could figure out how to report a problem.
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
Beautiful App, but some issues
by theoccasionalreviewer on 2020/04/28 12:07
This app is gorgeous and has a nice interface but with some adjustments it could be so much better. First of all, the app will randomly glitch sometimes and not even load up (an issue which is not even fixed by uninstalling-reinstalling the app sometimes). Secondly- and this is just an issue that I’ve noticed on the website AND the app- it’s basically impossible to find the show details page or episodes once you’re actually in the video. For example, if you clicked on the video from the “Recently Watched” section of the app/site, it only gives you the option to watch the current episode. If you don’t want to watch that episode or you simply want to read about the show, you have to go all the way to the search function and find the show in a different area of the app/website in order to locate the “details” or “episodes” information on the show (a discovery which took me a while to figure out). I think this app/site could benefit from an organizational redesign and could use some glitch fixes but other than that, pretty good.
Can I watch the show and not the commercial on repeat?
by MS5634 on 2019/10/31 16:17
This version has a pretty unfair feature. It used to be once I watched commercials once I could rewind and if it skipped over the commercial break it would just continue as if there wasn’t a commercial but now once if I have to audacity to use the rewind ten second button and it’s only been nine seconds since the last commercial I have to sit through another ninety seconds commercial break. I mean how long do you think it should take to watch a thirty minute program because forty-five to ninety minutes sounds kinda crazy especially since once a commercial starts i have no control over the app. I think you should make it so that once you have seen a commercial you can rewind and fast forward during a commercial. Because now i have no interest in seeing the grudge and that is Hulu’s fault because I have seen one ninety second clip so many times. That’s just an example. Please fix this problem. Just because I didn’t pay for ad-free doesn’t mean I should have to watch all the ads that every ad free customer isn’t watching. Oh and thanks I don’t have time to finish my show now.
Make it easier to switch plans!
by wildbellelover on 2019/10/28 00:43
as a new user i of course decided to go with the cheaper plan to “try it out”. i haven’t even gotten thru the first episode of the show i was dying to watch and i’m already so over all of these ads! the option to upgrade isn’t even on the app.. i had to go log in on the web which again requires way more clicks than necessary.. although after reading reviews i guess it’s a good thing it’s not so easy because apparently you have to wait until your current subscription is cancelled which completes a month later!??? OMG! you’d think you would want to make your new subscribers experience the best.. again you should make it easier to upgrade or start everyone out with the BEST plan first.. and then give them the option to switch once the free trial ends.. just saying.. i don’t plan to cancel right away.. i guess i’ll leave it on during the free trial and use the app if i’m that desperate to watch an episode i’m willing to sit thru the same ads over and over every few minutes while trying to get thru an episode. best believe my subscription will be cancelled as soon as the trial is up! so disappointing! ugh!
Never ending issues
by _tinydancer_ on 2020/04/01 06:48
You would think for app with this many subscribers and this high of a subscription rate (for the live tv) the least they could do is make an app that works. The app has near constant glitches. It often plays the audio of one show while a completely different show plays. It never remembers where you left off in a show so you have to watch the same commercial breaks again. It freezes, it crashes. It has the worst UI. You can’t set shows that you’ve recorded to automatically delete after you’ve watched them so you have to do it manually. Even when you record shows, you can only fast forward through the commercials maybe 25% of the time. One show I record never records the whole episode. Even after I delete it, it stays this way. Then miraculously, after a week, the full episode appears. Seems like this app is perpetually a year behind it’s competitors. I really hope someone reads this and looks into all these perpetual issues, but I’m not holding my breath. Get it together. You owe your paying customers more than this.
Could be way better
by Poshafied! on 2020/03/28 03:19
At first I loved this app then after using it for a awhile I found all the glitches. The time it takes to download a movie and all the buffering makes it difficult to even watch a show or a movie. I pay the extra for no commercials but by the time it buffers 25 times through the movie or show.... I give up. It never used to do this so much but now it’s all the time. I go to the other competition movie app and it doesn’t do it on that app so I know it’s not my internet. Did you get rid of someone that knew what they were doing tech wise??? Also they used to change the movie choices more often and have newer movies, even better that the competition, but now the movies are always the same and all OLD movies and horror film it’s boring and sickening. There used to be more choices, what about PBS, what about getting up to date history channel. I’d like to see some historical dramas and movies!! I pay my fee each month and I’m barely getting good use out of the app. I Really think I’ll discontinue my subscription.
Buffering, Glitches, Selection or Movies and Shows, and ADSS
by Alise Leonardo on 2020/06/06 04:52
Buffering and Glitches• The app has a nice selection of shows and tv shows. But it buffers and glitches A LOT!!! This makes it hard and annoying to watch stuff. It took me 20 minutes to get a movie started. I had to constantly restart the app and exit in and out of the app; to stop the glitches. I’ve checked my WiFi and it works perfectly. You would think with the updates it has they would have already fixed the constant buffering, loading, and glitches. It gets to the point where I can’t, don’t, or want to even bother to use the app. Selection of Movies and Shows• Another problem which isn’t that big is the selection of Movies and Shows. Don’t get me wrong it has an “okay” selection but they don’t update it that much. They don’t have much of the movies or shows I’m looking for. A lot of the shows they have aren’t that popular. I find it hard to not rewatch most of the same stuff. I’ve had this app for a year now and have watched mostly everything I’m interested in. Commercials• The commercials and constant ads in the app make me go CRAZY. There are so many commercials. I just want to watch something without commercials every 10-15 minutes. With all this I recommend Netflix or another app to watch stuff. But if you are looking for a specific show that is anti popular this app probably has it. The app has issues where it gets to the point you don’t want to use it.
Choose Wisely
by AidanMcGrath on 2019/09/13 01:26
Whatever you do, pick the plan you want from the get go. Do not try to change your plan after the fact. It doesn’t work. You will have to cancel your subscription and wait for its termination date - one month later. I didn’t think I minded having ads and then it hits you with these gross 70 second ads. I can’t watch those every 5-8 minutes when I’m just trying to enjoy a show. So I tried to change to the Hulu(no ads) plan but it won’t let me until my old plan terminates. So I tried making another account. Didn’t work; it recognizes that you have another account and says, “would you like to sign in with this one?”. When you hit no it doesn’t go through with the new account and if you hit yes, you weren’t making a new account to begin with. I’ve had this app for maybe an hour and already a huge turnoff. 3/5: the video quality was good in the 5-8 minutes I could stand watching. But most everything else is maddening.
Great Content. Terrible layout.
by Raffopat on 2020/05/01 01:47
I love the shows on this platform. But I run in to so many problems with quickly starting where I left off after my previous view sessions. It takes me a minute or two to get back to the episode I was watching, WHICH IS A PROBLEM I DONT INTO WITH ANY OTHER PLATFORMS. Very disappointed with the customer inference & the interaction I have had with it so far. The way the system works causes strain which SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING. I am a very tech savvy person too. But this app makes it 10x more strenuous to operate. Using this app opposed to others is a terrible experience.. The only reason I continue paying for this is because the content is great. I am very disappointed with the customer interface being a new customer. Its 2020, hope you know how to fix it. Sheesh. I’ll be sure to be talking to my friend about this too. Hopefully they get this fixed up soon. Lots of potential. Terrible platform performance so far. Don’t even get me started when I get gypped by watching 2 long adds in a row. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Brand new customer
by Great Speller on 2020/04/20 18:42
Omg, not political ads! I am a brand-new customer. I took advantage of the $0.99 offer for a year. So far I am quite happy with the service except for one thing. I don’t have a problem with the commercials since I knew it would happen due to the offer price. What I don’t like is the same commercials over and over again. It seems like when watching a program with several episodes, there is a repetition of ads which is, quite honestly, not going to get me out there for those products. There are a few older dramas (and probably sitcoms that aren’t already in syndication) that I would like to watch, namely “Cold Case,” “Boston Public,” “Falcon Crest,” and “Picket Fences.” I’m sure that there are more, but I cannot come up with them at this time. I’ll keep watching. The old shows are usually much better than the reality shows like the Kardashians and Real Housewives that are on now.
PLEASE FIX, APP WONT OPEN,CRASHES EVERY TIME I OPEN IT!!!!
by Jewel Divine on 2020/04/28 18:24
How strange I write a review but App Store won’t post it‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️😡😡😡😡😡 Ever since latest update of week of April 20th 2020, the app crashes every time I click to open it, it won’t open it closes fast, faster than in the blink of an eye!!! This is a paid subscription that I pay more than $130+ a month for, could the developers please fix this asap!! Why should it be necessary to leave a review and never receive a reply and for it to come this far? Don’t you get paid to supervise the application enough to know there’s this huge bug or glitch whatever it is that it won’t let the PAYING CUSTOMER watch the programming without the unnecessary stress?!?!? Will this issue ever be fixed?!?! Going on a week now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t think you want your customers cancelling, let us know what’s going on, update us I think we have a right to know what’s going on and not be in a loophole!!!!! Way too many ads, I pay for Ad Free TV and it’s way too many repeated ads over again!!!! Kids filter should be updated for safer TV!!!!!!
Worst streaming app by far
by Ibrad14 on 2018/06/06 12:24
I should not have to login every time I open the app… Even seconds later after I navigate out of it, when I go back it says there was an error and I need to login again. I still do not like how new shows do not always pop up to the front of my queue. There might be a show that I’m just not in the mood to watch and there are a couple of unwatched episodes… And that stays at the top of my queue. That’s fine until something else new or comes along it should bump it down. I was just getting used to the moronic layouts when all of these other things start happening, I thought we’ll maybe it’s because it’s not an updated app. So I cannot hear only time it just update it. Is there no quality assurance checks before and after you get released? Is there no focus group? Is there no research of what other streaming apps are doing and doing well?
Commercial overload
by Retail mobile Detail on 2019/11/28 16:20
I really like the app but two things turn me off about it. The first is that when picking a show they play too many commercials. Once you pick a show they play 90 secs of commercials, then they play the opening credits for your show. Then they play another set of commercials before playing the show. Then they play 2 more sets of commercials during a show that is only 22-25 mins. After the show is over they play another set of commercials before and after closing credits. I know that it is only 90secs but this adds up and makes me disinterested in watching any shows. The other feature I dislike is that when trying to watch “live tv” even when you pick that option they will make you watch the show from the beginning. Then you have to fast forward to live tv, after watching commercials of course.....
Please Either Fix Your App Or Be Truthful
by Hostess40 on 2020/03/15 03:14
Here’s addition to my last comment - we have an Internet speed up to 1 GB and my husband is a programmer/analyst for a living, so we know the issue isn’t on our end. But will you please upgrade your servers so your app doesn’t constantly idle and lose connection. We pay for no commercials but STILL get them ALL the time. Constantly buffering. I’m a teacher so I used to use this for documentaries but now whatever you did I no longer can. Don’t even get me started on your ‘Continue Watching’ section! I have shows I’ve never watched all over it and can never find the shows I ACTUALLY AM WATCHING! And what the hell is it with eliminating episodes after only watching them once?! I started watching a series, one was Nancy Drew, the rest of my family wanted to watch the older episodes to catch up and they’re gone! What the hell! This is a brand new series people! Either fix your dam app or be honest about how you have things set up! Seriously!
Up next fiasco
by dauhaz on 2019/10/13 05:01
I don’t understand the algorithm behind the episodes listed in “up next”. It is so annoying to have to exit that list and go back to “my stuff” to watch another episode every single time that I cannot give more than two stars. They’re not even in “my stuff”, and why would anyone want to watch random episodes of different shows one after the other instead of watching consecutive episodes of a show? Who does that? But that’s not even the point. I would rather see the new episodes of the shows in “my stuff” in the “up next” list than a bunch of episodes of random shows. For instance, I see the option of adding individual episodes to a list called “my episodes”, which cannot be accessed anywhere. Basically a blackhole. Why not add the episodes in “my episodes” to “up next” and give users the ability to manage the “my episodes” list? Just a thought...
SO MANY GLITCHES!
by 🌸❤️❤️🌸❤️❤️🌸 on 2020/05/22 05:03
Great app, but there are a lot of bugs that need to me fixed. First off, the skip, I tried to resume an episode I was watching and every time I would go to skip back to where I was, it would restart the episode. Also, the ad problem needs to be fixed, it keeps playing the ads, then replaying them. Like it would have the ads run as normal, then replay them for no reason. Also there needs to be an easier way to change plans. Skipping is rather annoying as well because every time I skip forward or back it sends me back to where I was! It has even started to black out my screen at certain points in movies and TV shows. I’m very upset about this because all I want to do is watch a show, and it won’t let me! Please fix all of this!
New app design terrible
by Unholyfatman on 2017/10/02 06:38
I don't normally take time out day to simply bash apps on iTunes but this new app redesign was so freaking terrible I couldn't get the bad taste out of my mouth so here I am. Tiles really guys seriously and not just tiles poor and restrictive ways to view shows I can't just get a bunch of small icons like before that give me optimal information no I need to thumb through every single tile to see anything well I guess the days of me discovering new shows is over because even browsing your data base is a nightmare so on my iPad Pro 12.9 I see 4 tiles at a time where as before I would see like 20 or more on my old iPad 9.7 inch this is absurd I advise if you do not want to lose people just in the settings simply add a legacy mode switch to the UI so us who aren't mouth breathing idiots can enjoy browsing your selection. Ah I feel a bit better now we'll back to struggling through your terrible UI which will most likely lead to me cancelling my subscription
Newest update causes more problems
by lpr2012 on 2019/10/22 00:16
Update: Down to one star. - Resume now never works. It always starts the episode back at the start, even on the same device. The thumbnail will show something like 70%, say “Resume,” but tapping will just start at the network logo and you get to scrub to try and find your spot. - Crashes in the background on TV OS every time it’s launched. - When you have Live TV with no commercials, about 50% of the time, the system will play the live on-demand version of a show instead of the no commercials version. Killing the app and restarting will re-roll for you. Update: New regressions. Do you all need help testing basics? - If you stop a show mid-stride, coming back to the interface shows the “resume” button and a progress bar at the right place. Tapping resume starts the show over. Happens about 90% of the time on TV and iPhone/iPad apps. The update again causes more usability bugs. - Links from the TV app no longer work again, and watch percentage is no longer updated back. Happens about 20% of the time. - Resume function no longer works. Stopping a video and resuming it later on Apple TV causes the video to start at the beginning about 50% of the time. Seems to work fine on iPad and iPhone. - App crashes when video is paused and the screen saver comes on or the screen locks. Happens about 30% of the time.
$5.99 for ads and terrible stream quality
by didntlikeit on 2019/09/20 17:02
This app has great content to be able to stream. But I hate that this app has prioritized ads over streaming connection. The app lags out almost 1/5 times I’m trying to watch something after an ad plays. I would say it might me my WiFi or data connection but Netflix doesn’t have this issue at all. All ads play perfectly but the content when streaming times out all the time. I pay $5.99 for tv like experience with all this content and the only real experience I’m getting is ads that I’m apparently paying for. I’m ending my subscription because this company puts advertising over quality of streaming which is what I had hoped to pay for. I don’t mind ads here and there. But I don’t want to watch ads every time because the app crashed on the streaming connection with pop up errors because only ads work. The app never crashes during an advertisement. Why is that?
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!
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.
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.
It WAS a good app!
by D-Pill on 2019/10/23 02:35
I’ve been using it for a year now and had no major issues. I pay for the Hulu+live tv and like how I can watch tv on my phone, laptop or actual tv. (Very handy during football and basketball season) Thought ever since it got updated (Sept. 2019) it’s been having major issues. The app completely exits from itself in the middle of a show, or the screen would go dark with a loading bar. Only to pop back up rewinding itself 20 seconds, playing then going dark again. Getting stuck in an annoying endless loop. I really like the app but if that is is the kind of service I’m going to keep having, especially paying $45/month. I might as well go back to my satellite provider. Now I don’t want to sound like I’m ranting but I ACTUALLY like this app and if it doesn’t improve soon, I’m going to have to part ways with it. So for now enjoy the 2 STARS.
Bugs
by AllieH1008 on 2017/09/15 02:07
Every time I try to open the app on my phone, it says "something is wrong: try again." Extremely frustrating. I've tried reinstalling and updating it, and it's the same problem. It won't work. Update: the previous problem has gone away, but with the new update, I accidentally fast forward my show probably about ten times in each sitting somehow. Its extremely easy to do. I end up watching extra commercials because of this, and then when I try to find my spot again, I have to sit through a second set of commercials if I click multiple times looking for the right scene. It adds a LOT of commercials to my viewing time. I also have similar concerns to others reviews, as it used to be easy to find my shows and find new things I'd be interested in, but now it's not as intuitive, and it's more difficult to quickly find things.
You Really Need To Let People Take Screenshots

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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
UI suggestions....
by Adam H.. on 2019/11/20 04:42
I can’t say anything about commercials and switching plans because I already have the Ad free version and I have live tv in other means, but, during playback, PLEASE... Make the swipe to rewind/fast forward inactive until one swipes up enough first, or some other gesture to reduce unintentional swipes. I can’t tell you how many times I mess up the playback position while trying to pick up my one iPad without a case or cover because I tap the screen edge then bump the slider significantly. Make the video not pause when going from Picture in Picture back to full screen if it’s already playing. The whole point of going full screen is to continue viewing on the full screen. I know it can be done...competitor apps do it.
Autoplay Not Working!!!
by Kdove98 on 2019/08/09 03:02
Autoplay is not working and randomly stops one episode in while other times the thing will play all night long when I fall asleep. The app is poorly designed and simple features like the ability to skip credit scenes and title sequences are missing yet the price is still the same NFlix. Why do you have to pay for a headache? How can this company not build an app properly? You have billions of dollars. Last time I canceled because the app was falling apart and riddled with error messages that even uninstalling couldn’t fix on my phone and tablet. And they have no appropriate customer service. You guys have no respect for your customers and that’s why you’ll always be second or simply lose them over time to better streaming services. Maybe I’ll just cancel every other month and keep signing up for the free first month option so I can cheat you as much as you’re cheating me.
Good! But, a few issues
by Anon.2018 on 2018/10/31 13:30
I do not like the user interface set up all that much. For example, let’s say I just watched a series. I close app then re-open it at a later time. I expect to have that series somewhere on my dashboard but it’s not. In fact I typically have to retype it in the search box just to find it again. Second, I’m watching a show and I click to go to new episode; however, the GUI is gone! No play, backwards, forward, pause, scroll bar...nothing but an “X.” I contacted IT support and they didn’t know anything. So, it’s typical that I’ll have to refresh the page or log out and log in five to fifteen times over a few hours. But, in the end for the price and volume of shows it’s worth putting up with the glitches.
Can’t play in background
by Dragon vale man on 2017/11/21 05:01
I’m not going to say the new update is terrible because I honestly don’t think it is. I however have been annoyed at the fact that the tv shows can not be played in the background on the device. Normally people will listen to music as they use their device. However, for me that is tv shows. Because I have watched this particular show so much I don’t need to physically see it anymore, I have it playing in the background. Like another reviewer said, no one should be expected to stay glued to a show for an extended amount of time. That user wanted PIP and his PIP was revived. Last night even I was able to play in the background starting Saturday the 18th and ending the 19th. Please bring this back or install it if what I was experiencing was a bug. Thank you for you time.
Apply TV app is horrendous
by nathanalf on 2017/10/06 16:44
I honestly don’t even know where to begin. All the complaints below apply to the Apple TV app as that is the primary way I use it, and I can’t speak to the iPhone / iPad versions. Half the time clicking on a title does nothing, especially in the “up next” pop up when an episode ends, and if you let the timer run down it replays the episode you just watched instead of skipping to the next one. Half the time when you do play an episode either the sound is a second off from the video (only fix is force quitting the app). Also have had the video appear not the play, click to play again and now two streams of the same episode are playing (one on top of the other) resulting in double audio - and the only fix is force quitting the app. I swear half of the time I use this app it is force quitting the app and waiting for it to reload. Navigation is a HOT mess. Where are the simple badges saying which shows have a new episode available? Why is the “my stuff” category not available to filter by new episodes available? Why do I need to wait for the app to “fetch new recommendations” every single time I open it up? I love love LOVE hulu’s service, and in the past the app has been very solid. However once this redesign rolled out I feel like the quality / reliability of the app has greatly suffered.
Better mobile experience than on home TV
by nicki names on 2019/07/03 20:03
The mobile app is pretty good. Navigation is thoughtful and fairly well-organized. The mobile app also allows you to immediately press an icon in the center of the screen to go straight to the live broadcast instead of starting at the beginning for shows in your recording list. For some strange reason, that button is missing in the Fire tv version of the app. As a result, I have to manually hold the right button to fast forward to get to the live stream. Annoying, and particularly confusing for my elderly relatives who wonder why the show is not live and on a delay. This needs to be more like navigating and consuming on a cable provider (can’t believe I just said that).
Need to make it more compatible with iPhone X
by wen_d_ta on 2017/12/16 19:01
Besides everyone’s concern about the sensitivity on the rewind and forward, which I agree is soooooo frustrating, I just got the iPhone X and some shows don’t take up the full screen of the phone which is the whole point of the phone! The shows need to expand through the whole screen. also it would be very helpful if they could but the time as well on the iPhone 7 when you tapped of the screen you would see the time come down and now I have to click out of the app to see what time it is and that’s frustrating as well... I know it’s a process and you’re trying i hope my suggestions help!
Where are all the seasons at???
by PotatoeKing on 2018/03/28 21:10
I'm very disappointed with the fact that almost all the shows you have never finish the show. They're always missing seasons unless it's a 1/2 season show! This is very dumb not only because we cannot finish our show BUT shouldn't all those ads you put in the middle of our shows make you enough money to give us a full series??!!!! This is very annoying. For example one of my shows had to end on an episode where there is still so much story to be told, but I could not experience this show because of this terrible idea. This is ABSOLUETLY outrageous considering we're supposed to be able to "catch up on all our favorite shows". This slogan is a HUGE LIE. If you want an app where you can stop watching in the middle of a plot on a show BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T SPEND SOME OF ALL THAT MONEY THEY MAKE GIVING US SOME GOSH DARN ENDINGS TO FINISH OUR SHOWS!!!!!😡
Giving 5 because many fixes have been done
by Fantasticallyella on 2018/09/21 20:25
Firstly, it’s 5 to try and help weigh in against all the people who complained about losing HDMI because it’s been fixed. And on that note thank god the HDMI lightning connector works again. There was no way I was gonna budge and spring for additional technology when I’m broke A/F all the time. The overall selection seems to be getting more bunk. Maybe start adopting shows like The Last Man on Earth as Netflix has done with Arrested Development for example. That being said I still find shows on here worth the amount I pay for the subscription. Smoothish transitions from episode to episode. I think the forward / backward 10 and 30 seconds is odd I’m used to the 1:1 that most video players use. Lastly I think the selection screen - at least on a mobile device - is too large and requires too much scrolling. Again comparing to Netflix, while browsing you can view several show title cards and multiple categories at once. For the regular streamers that’s great when I’m trying to just generally peruse highlighted shows.
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
News subscriber
by Ranget1 on 2019/07/31 16:14
Just switched from sling last weekend so my rating is based on limited experience... So far I’ve found navigating the apps (on my fire stick and the iOS mobile app) to be cumbersome. The live tv controls are nothing like any cable, satellite, or other streaming tv options I have used... the guide is not good and only has next episodes as far future viewing so you have to search if you looking to record something. And going in and out of the guide and watching live tv is nothing short of frustrating to this point. I’m sure it will get easier with repetition but really... my wife will never have it down. And then there’s the no AMC or Paramount channels. The good thing is I can cancel at any time and there is a lot of content so hopefully they can improve the TV guide soon!
Great live TV, not the best navigation
by nickgreene25 on 2018/10/24 01:14
It’s a bulky interface that requires too many clicks to achieve what your looking for. This has been a great alternative to Cable, and we’re happy with the quality of streaming, but the guide and actions are not very simple. Would be easier if there are options to go straight to live TV at startup rather than having to go from main menu every time. Better sorting options for the guide would be nice too, like maybe having a favorites sections. They have “news” and “sports” channel guides, but often times they leave off channels that it might not deem in those categories, even if it is. Just needs a little refining for a better experience, but overall it’s better than paying for cable.
Needs a fix but good
by Lugubrinilily on 2019/12/01 20:00
I love the app. Easy interface with a great selection but, commercials please fix them, I’m okay with the breaks and it makes sense but why another set of commercials just because I rewinded it 10 seconds? It doesn’t make sense, it should skip passed them since I already watched them I shouldn’t be penalized for wanting to replay a part of the show. Is there a wider variety of commercials also? I seem to always get the same ones. Another thing that really really needs fixing is the buffering icon in the middle of the screen when watching on my laptop, if I so as rewind a few seconds back it will stay in the middle of the screen and my only option to get rid of it is to reload the page, not only does that not continue where I left off but it’s could also be susceptible to ANOTHER COMMERCIAL BREAK. Please fix
Random issues with no pattern
by roegner on 2019/05/28 19:06
So I need subtitles, but sometimes when a commercial break is over the subtitles will randomly stop working. Now the audio cut out completely for no apparent reason. I think it’s also very irritating when I open or slide into my notifications screen or quick settings screen that the show I’m watching won’t play in the background, and just pause automatically. Furthermore, it is astonishingly annoying how if I slightly move or tap something on screen that my video will slide away. I feel like there should be an arrow specifically for minimizing the video, instead of relying on everything to slide. Lastly, if I slide out of a video for just a few seconds, I shouldn’t have to watch 90 seconds of commercials all over again to just continue my show. Please resolve these issues, thank you.
Five stars EXCEPT
by 👍🏼💪🏼👌🏼 on 2018/09/25 08:48
Five stars...Except the latest update. instead of the movie just automatically switching to horizontal view when you push play, it stays small and brings up the list of shows you’ve watched previously/are in the middle of. Why would I want to see those while I’m watching a show? They take up over half the screen.... It’s stupid and annoying that I have to click a million buttons just to get it to full screen. And half the time the full screen button doesn’t work cause it’s so small the heat from my finger bypasses it and just makes the play/pause/full screen options disappear—so then I have to tap it again.
What the hell
by Marshire on 2017/11/22 11:51
So, I’m one of those people that likes to rewind on my favorite scene. So, I loved it when more streaming services added the fast forward and rewind ten seconds buttons. However, is there any reason that they need to be in the middle of the screen blocking everything? Does the screen need to be dimmed when it does this? Short answer. NO. What worse is when when your pausing or using the 10sec but and hit anywhere else on the screen, either to close the dimming or by accident, the show will skip to wherever you touched. Dudes that’s what the bar at the bottom is for. You tried to make something more convenient and instead made it aggravating as hell. Literally just had the show start over twice because of this idiotic feature and I wouldn’t let me skip the tv shows channel thing that before. So, I ended up watching it three times. Seriously, not useful at all.
Awful
by zhansen06 on 2017/09/14 00:18
The old app worked fine but was very clunky. I didn't think an update could be this bad. This app is difficult to use and is not intuitive at all. Oftentimes it errors out when playing the next episode of a show, forcing me to grab a device and attempt to play it again. I really just cannot stand the way this app is organized now. Sure, it's pretty, but the "Home" tab lists a SINGLE show. Across an entire iPad display. A complete waste of screen real estate. "My stuff" tab shows a list of your shows that you enjoy watching but it is organized in a complete non-categorical way. Very frustrating. Finally when you search for a show you want to watch (the best and easiest way to find anything, given this app's poor design), you have two small boxes with the last episode you left off on, and the latest episode. Once again, poor use of a huge iPad screen. You have tabs at the top for "episodes", but unless you know better, "seasons" is buried inside there as a small link. Constructive feedback? I suppose change "episodes" into a "seasons" button or something of the sort. However this won't change the overall design of the app being so poor and the waste of screen space. The old app was very old and also very clunky, BUT at least it was laid out logically.
Anyone else disappointed with new update?
by Mooveychick on 2018/05/12 02:19
Just curious if anybody else is having trouble with the new update. There have been many times that I’ve been watching a show on my iPad, then all of a sudden it stops and an error message comes up saying I can’t watch the show in my region. I’m in the United States people! And then I try other shows and it gives me that same message. I’m also having trouble with the show playing and then all of a sudden it jumps back to the very beginning where the television network logo comes up and then it will jump back to where I was watching. I don’t know what’s going on. It was working fine prior to this update
Good and bad
by Quentin Acosta on 2019/07/27 08:46
Ok so I’ve had this for about a month now I like that it has a lot of different things but since I’m paying for this service I’m I’m sure others are as well I believe we are not getting our money’s worth. For instance why is it that the fairy tale anime has been out for yrs and you guys only have the first 2 and the very last season dubbed in English like come on to be honest all the anime’s should have a dubbed version , and what’s up with your movies you guys need a more vast variety of them because like a handful of good ones again this are just some things I think is in your power of fixing so for everyone’s sake please fix it thank you

Can’t watch everything
by gdjesvdjw on 2020/07/10 02:07
I like the app I would give it a five star but it would be better if you could actually watch everything that is on the app I would give it a five star if that wasn’t a problem
Not good yet
by SadThisAppDoesntWork on 2020/07/10 01:49
Navigating the Hulu app for iPhone has always been difficult. Content is highly filtered for the user giving the impression there is far less things to watch than what’s actually available when casually browsing. The app still doesn’t switch between landscape and portrait mode when rotating in the browse page
What did you do
by AliceCooperFanAnthony on 2020/07/10 01:42
The new format of the app is ugly and congested. The old format was great, easy to use, intuitive, and easy on the eyes. This new one makes it so hard to find something new to watch when I’m fatigued on shows I’ve seen.

No longer works on Apple TV
by filmkzp on 2020/07/09 21:56
Since the new release i have to uninstall and reinstall each time I want to watch Hulu on Apple TV. Very frustrating.
Blah
by f8tr on 2020/07/09 20:32
Crashes Constantly!!! Errors. Constantly!!! Freezes... repeats same episodes back to back. Skips episodes... 👎🏼 worst ugh!! Updated today 5-19-20. SAME ISSUES!! ... 5-20-20. New errors!!! 😡. 5-21-20. More!!! Updated 6-1-20. Now the app is WORSE than before!!!🙈 updated app 7-9-20. Crashed. Episode errors!!
Great app but MAJOR problems.
by 😊/😡bubble 8610 on 2020/07/09 20:18
You can watch some great shows like Rick and Morty and Bob’s Burger’s, but the ads are INSANE. Most of the times the ads take about 80-90 seconds which is HORRIBLE.
Hulu Subscription Plans
by Tim Goyette on 2020/07/09 20:17
So I’m just finding out that dropping the “ad free” option also made me lose the ability to download movies and TV episodes to my iPad. I pay $60 a month for Hulu + Live TV. Someone that just has Hulu (Ad Free) for $12 a month can download. This doesn’t seem fair that I’m paying approximately $48 more per month and I don’t get the option to download. I may have to rethink my TV subscription... maybe go back to Xfinity.
Constantly crashes update better
by Mr. Fluffs on 2020/07/09 19:43
It has gotten much better the grid however on Apple TV is terrible you need to be able to swipe back-and-forth between channels this is known
Apple TV hangs again and again
by AshSax on 2020/07/09 19:22
For the last few weeks, it just does not open and keeps loading. Then you have to remove the app from Apple TV and reinstall (and log-in again) to make it work. Then this happens again almost every day. It is really frustrating. It works well when you are able to open though.
Not working on Apple TV
by NicknamesAreSoStupid on 2020/07/09 15:24
Seems to be fine on my iPad but not on my apple tv, which is the only way I use Hulu. It’s been 3 days, please fix, this is my main tv app.
Adds...
by cant say😁 on 2020/07/09 15:11
Omg o love this app but the AMOUNT Of ADS its SO annoying i was just watching something and the an ad popped up and i thought “ok its only one add” but its was three adds and more cause it happened right now so idk how many more adds will pop up so please fix that its the on issue for now but other then that the app is great
Wish I could put zero

I’m good with the library but ADS?!? I JUST WANT TO WATCH NAROUTO AND ITS ALWAYS SUNNY THIS IS A BAD BUSINESSES CHOICE. PLEASE STOP YOU MONSTERS 4 ADS IS TOO MUCH AND IM NOT PAYING 12$ FOR NO ADS YOU DEMONS AND DEVILS I DONT CARE ABOUT YOU’RE LIBRARY YOU MONEY HUNGRY JERKS EVEN YOUTUBE HAS LESS ADS >:(
Have to delete/reinstall daily
by Andy Martini on 2020/07/09 12:57
Good luck. Every day I have to delete and reinstall the app on Apple TV. And Hulu only wants to say it’s Apple’s fault. This is their answer all the time. Well this or is your internet fast enough. I’ve never seen a company with such a lack of accountability. But that’s OK because YouTube TV has the same channels and a couple more that Hulu doesn’t have, live TV and the same price. So Hulu...you’re on the short list to be replaced. Starting my 7 day free trial today to see how YouTube is compared to you.
I would give Hulu 5 stars BUT..
by SlimeGodKing on 2020/07/09 07:30
The app has been down for nearly three days on my phone! I keep getting token error 5. Please fix this ASAP it isn’t fair that I’m paying for an app that doesn’t work.
Update? What update?
by LK!!!!! on 2020/07/09 06:01
This app is the glitchiest app on the market. After every update, it takes at least a week before you can actually use the app without it closing out REPEATEDLY. Glad the app is free, but frustrated that I can’t actually watch the shows I’m paying for. Honestly, don’t waste your time with the app, just watch on your browser.
Why would I pay for commercials?
by Mitchregal on 2020/07/09 04:53
Why would I pay money to watch commercials?
Fake ad
by Gucciiphone on 2020/07/09 04:23
Stop advertising shows you say you have but don’t have the newest episodes. Why do I wanna watch season 1 for and I only have a week then you take it off? Wow
I was watching naruto shippuden and at 70 episodes it’s only Japanese not English which is sad
by c4320n on 2020/07/09 03:11
Pls fix this
App doesn’t work. Only 1 movie doesn’t open
by UmMeral on 2020/07/09 02:26
I can’t believe after paying for more than a year I just wanted to watch 1 movie at Hulu . Sideways!! It says everywhere only Hulu has it . I have Netflix, amazon prime , hbo subscriptions and on top them Hulu And only one movie I wanted to watch. Sideways is not on Hulu at Apple TV. Their app is not opening at my iPhone with an error page I canceled my subscription. I pay $4 a time for only 1 movie I want to watch at somewhere else
Episode bugs
by Pig Go Rawr on 2020/07/09 02:20
Normally I would give a good rating however, after the many recent updates, I can no longer choose a specific episode I want to watch. I.E. If I started to watch a series on a different streaming platform then went over to Hulu, I’m forced to re-watch every episode rather than choosing the episode I had left off on. This an unreasonable bug that I certainly hope isn’t a feature to the app.
got worse
by Donut Demitra on 2020/07/09 02:19
i used to be able to do picture in picture about 2 weeks ago and now i can’t and i am very upset about it :(
👺👎
by 2nitch9in3 on 2020/07/09 02:13
I honestly hate ‘‘tis new update were the screen changed. Only one problem, I can’t even press pause while watching and have to swipe down to the lock screen on my iPhone to pause then play.
Apple TV App constantly freezes, crashes, and looses connection
by AZRed89 on 2020/07/09 01:37
The app constantly freezes, crashes, and loses connection on Apple TV. Just a heads up, your competitor Netflix Apple TV app doesn’t have this problem.
Ads
by Nuun1006 on 2020/07/09 01:33
I don’t mind the ads but please stop putting it right before the end credits so I don’t waste my time watching them just to get to the credits!
Really disappointed
by Lola Larissa r USA on 2020/07/09 01:23
Was thrilled that I finally got Hulu but my old iPad is incompatible due to having IOS 8.3.5. I wanted a bigger screen compared to my iPhone's small screen. It would be a 4 star on my phone but a 1 due to this issue. I hope and wish they could make it compatible and work.
Buggy with AppleTV
by Hfdtsshjcfrjlfr on 2020/07/09 01:17
I really enjoy the content on Hulu, both old programs and originals. I don’t understand, however, with all the resources behind the app, why it functions so poorly with AppleTV. Almost every time I try to watch something, the app won’t load, or I get a message “trouble loading content, try later”. If I go to a different app, no problem. Usually restarting the AppleTV resolves the issue, but why do I have to go through this so often?
TOO MANY ADS
by Upsetpersonvvvv on 2020/07/09 01:00
What’s the point of paying, If there’s going to be way too many long ads. This is ridiculous remove the ads and or make them short... I can’t even enjoy the shows in peace!!!
Back to having to delete each day
by BulldogThunder on 2020/07/08 23:33
The problem of having to delete and reload the app daily on AppleTV is back. That is the only way you can get it to load. Had the problem before, but now it is back.
Appletv version
by Mdjx4 on 2020/07/08 22:25
The AppleTv version will not launch, all I get is the spinning circle. Yesterday I deleted and reinstalled it and then it worked fine. Today however after deleting the app and attempting to reinstall all I got in the App Store was the spinning circle awaiting install. Please fix this I watch the Hulu app everyday but the problems are getting old quick.
Issues with latest update
by Yes2pizza on 2020/07/08 22:25
Since the update a week ago, I haven’t been able to get the app to cast to the TV. Since that’s 99% of the way I use Hulu it makes it hard to justify continuing the subscription :(
Terrible
by ligmanutzp on 2020/07/08 22:23
Ur streaming on smart tvs and the connection when doing it is terrible. It makes me exit 5 times and resume before i can finish an episode of a show. Do better.
About Hulu
by bsnsiskskanwbavsuakqqaldjcchdn on 2020/07/08 22:00
Hulu is a nice app for shows and movies.But the there are so many adds after 5 minutes there is a 80 seconds adds!
Not user friendly
by Stonesthrowzzz on 2020/07/08 21:34
I just switched from Fubo & am very disappointed by this app. Too many items in the menu & too hard to navigate to the live tv that you want. My stuff isn’t very helpful. This app really needs to be reorganized to enable easier navigation
Ehhh
by absssssster on 2020/07/08 21:14
Well it glitches a lot and not that many options i really wanted but also it replays episodes i already watched which is really annoying >:( but in want all episodes of drake and josh and icarly
Ads
by Bettyrob180 on 2020/07/08 21:10
I love Hulu and it’s wide range of shows and movies but there are just so many ads and they are so long, I already may for Hulu so why should I have to go through ads?!?
It's not working login
by estrella017 on 2020/07/08 20:13
Horrble
Currently unavailable
by AlmindJoy on 2020/07/08 19:41
I’ve noticed that some of my favorite shows are “currently unavailable” now I don’t know if that’s because your adding new episodes or if it didn’t do well in the U.S. Just by reading that you know it’s anime I’m talking about. I just started watching it and I love it but I now cannot watch it and that makes me sad. :(
Why i hate this app.
by Venmo is whack on 2020/07/08 19:37
Why did i get this? It because i believed there will be NO Japanese and if so i can turn it off but nooooo this stupid app wont let me and it frustrates me that i have to deal with Japanese even though i can pit on subtitles I.HATE.READING!!!!!!!!! But still it will let me see the season i love so if you just fix that one thing and let us turn OFF any language we dont want then i will give it 5 stars but until then i give it one star.
Hulu headache
by Josy Posey on 2020/07/08 19:31
Tired of having to re enter from the start every time I try to watch Hulu.
Good app but
by Created dread on 2020/07/08 19:21
The problem I have I is with Hulu live is the Commercials get more commercials with it and pay more if you don’t want extra commercial if you pay for it but other than that it’s OK app
The New Update
by jensihg on 2020/07/08 18:48
The new update is horrible. I can no longer pause or unpause, and there is a set amount of 10 second skips. The app has also been going back anywhere from 10 seconds, to a couple minutes, before where I last watched- even before the latest update.
This app is awful
by Avalanche Carter on 2020/07/08 17:53
This app is awful for a company as large as Hulu and for streaming. I Ike to use it when I’m working instead of leaving the tv on. Even though I am two feet away from my wireless router it constantly tells me that WiFi is weak and needs to be refreshed. I have to power down my phone in order to get it to work. This morning I’ve had to do it three times already. Hulu- DO BETTER
Dumbest streaming service ever
by dhejr47 on 2020/07/08 17:21
Pay to watch commercials...and not just one or two for a show. Think 90 seconds every 10 minutes. It’s a joke. You watch more commercials than regular tv. Oh, want to rewind after just watching 90 seconds of ads? You’re going to have to watch those commercials all over. Why would anyone like this? I unsubscribed in first 3 days.
Keeping having to uninstall and re-install
by Dtyoung2383 on 2020/07/08 17:14
We’ve had this for about a month now, and really like it, but recently when we open it on our Apple TV, it won’t open. We’ll delete it, and then re-install it, and it opens.
Latest TV app
by Suddenrush on 2020/07/08 17:05
I have to login frequently. Makes viewing not so convenient. I do not have the same issues in iPhone app that I do on tvOS. Please focus on the quality of the tvOS app.
Better than Netflix but still buggy
by CLTguy5 on 2020/07/08 16:42
There is a delay in the menu area. Also if we turn off the TV and forget to take Apple TV back to the main screen, Hulu will have the spinning wheel and will pend such that you need to restart the Apple TV.
Hulu and Toshiba Googlecast
by arimtimtimo on 2020/07/08 13:32
The last war update has caused Hulu to freeze when trying to cast to a Toshiba Googlecast tv. I’ve reset both and redownloaded the app, still no luck connecting the tv to Hulu with cast. It’s not the TV or the WiFi like I’m sure I’ll be told by customer support. I can cast no problem with Netflix, Youtude and Amazon Prime. Not sure what Hulu has done but it needs to be looked at.
Can’t cast to tv
by xoxonatasha244 on 2020/07/08 06:31
New update has caused my iPhone to not cast to my tv , I can play videos just fine on my phone but then I can’t skip ads . The Hulu logo will cast to my tv but will not let me play anything . Very frustrating since my tv is only used for cast , I have resorted to using Netflix which has nothing I watch on it . FIX NOW PLEASE !!!!
immature
by ixoloxi on 2020/07/08 05:42
too limited in content
Great shows but a few problems.
by Soccer player 999999 on 2020/07/08 05:37
It has a bunch of awesome shows to watch. But I recently changed a kid’s account to a regular one on one device but it wouldn’t load on my other device, now we can’t watch Hulu on the iPad! The other things are that there are a bunch of ads and it glitches a lot!
This app never works
by Srivatsava on 2020/07/08 05:21
I have never been this frustrated with any streaming app. Everytime it gives “Hmm something up logout and try” I logout and it never logins me in again. Weird error saying please check internet, yes dude I have internet all my 200 apps working except this trash. Same thing happens on iPad and Apple TV. Even on google people said delete the app and reinstall it. That works sometimes. Why should I have to go through all this trouble to watch a show on this app. If the developers are reading this , you guys need better skill set because your app doesn’t work. Nobody cares about the color coding and effects it needs to serve the prime purpose. Hope they learn and fix this with next update.
Hulu keeps getting worse
by Youth Minister startin in 2019 on 2020/07/08 04:07
Can’t live stream and support page leads to a rabbit hole! Ready to change. Any suggestions?
It’s slow
by Giananas25 on 2020/07/08 03:31
Hulu is great but it’s always glitching and it’s SLOW it doesn’t save my recently watched at times and it’s honestly annoying
Ads whyyyy that much?
by Engjelllll on 2020/07/08 03:04
How can a 40 minutes movie have 11 ads on it with 2 minutes what is wrong with the app
Awful
by ssdarling94 on 2020/07/08 02:43
This app is terrible. It crashes all the time. I could never watch any show to the end without it crashing. It is not my internet connection. No matter the internet connection the app crashes. I feel that I’ve waited my money and will be canceling. I’ve given this app a chance for the past year and a half but it only gets worse. I’m done with it. It never gets better - only worse Update: I switched to sling. Bye Hulu.
Okay
by Br1tt87 on 2020/07/08 01:57
I love how many shows are available, but it is extremely frustrating when the app constantly shuts down and won’t load my shows.
Every day I need to reinstall this app
by Furb12 on 2020/07/08 01:53
Unlike every other app on my device I need to reinstall this one every day I plan to use it. When I try to watch something it spends some time loading and the says I have a weak connection; I’m unable to play anything. My connection is fine and other streaming apps work with no issues. Even without this nagging problem the user experience feels clunkier than the other streaming apps I mentioned. Some of the programming is quite good so for now I’ll keep using it but at some point I’ll probably cancel my subscription unless this app is fixed.
South Park
by jeuss p on 2020/07/08 01:30
They took of South Park that’s an automatic 1 Star for Hulu I’m deleting it
Shuts down and will not sign on
by Dyc4deafofmex on 2020/07/08 00:44
Have a continual issue with Hulu not wanting to sign in or it shutting down.... have check for updates on iPhone and app but nothing and still have a lot of bugs
Randomly playing some episodes in Spanish...
by TAWoody84 on 2020/07/08 00:34
When starting my next episode of Sherlock from the Apple tv TV app, starting this week, hulu starts playing the Spanish version of the show for some reason even though I have English selected for the language. Never happened before this week. Weird, now today its working fine so far. Nope, back to Spanish.
App just spins on launch
by bc88888 on 2020/07/08 00:22
App doesn’t open to home screen when launched on AppleTV since the last update. I have to force close the app and reopen to get it to work.
Better than Netflix
by Just_trust_buster on 2020/07/08 00:10
My whole life I have had Netflix and Netflix is good and all but once you’ve watch everything on there it’s like what now? Hulu has so many shows that it’s impossible to ever get bored with it. The only thing they could fix is pricing it is a little expensive but at the same time kind of worth it.
too many adds!
by ILikekittiesmeowmeow on 2020/07/07 23:48
whenever i try to watch a movie or show, there are like 5 90 second long adds that you can’t skip. it’s so irritating. i wouldn’t recommend hulu. use netflix.
Ready to switch
by 2bglmom on 2020/07/07 22:59
It’s nice to have live streaming and favorite shows, but not when it doesn’t work! Since the latest update, there have been numerous times when the app doesn’t load. I delete it and reinstall and works until the next time I want to use it. We have had other issues as well where it keeps repeating the last few seconds. I should not have to keep deleting and reinstalling to grt this to work. The subscription just renewed, but for the next month, I’ll be looking for another streaming app unless you can get this one to work! It’s not worth the trouble for the price!
Ads
by gxfnf on 2020/07/07 22:25
The app has 3 minute ads with no skip you have to whatch the whole ad it’s so annoying.
Anime
by keep it up hulu on 2020/07/07 22:19
The anime is good the only thing Hulu has to is the dubs to the anime.The movies are good they got some great movies I recommend this app.
Update is crap
by Lnasty80 on 2020/07/07 21:30
The play pause buttons no longer work, as well as the seek and rewind buttons after this latest update. Fix now please!
Garbage Application
by Slicsolescalvo on 2020/07/07 18:54
If you are watching a show it’ll make you rewatch advertisements like crazy. For example, you are watching a show and there’s an ad at 10:50 and you want to rewatch something that happened at 10:45 you’ll be FORCED TO WATCH AN ADVERTISEMENT TWO TIMES. Pathetic, HULU already charges you to watch their shows. Plus they love to ADD ON 10 ads per episode, pathetic. They are money hungry animals, stick to the Netflix app. F Hulu
Recent update is awful
by The Reader is now the Listener on 2020/07/07 18:11
I’ve used Hulu for a while with little issues. It’s occasionally glitchy but nothing terrible. But since the update I can’t pause, play, rewind or fast forward. None of the buttons are responsive except full screen and exit. To pause a show I have to fully exit the app. Then reopen, re-find what I was watching and click on it again just to get it to play. Tried restarting and re-downloading, still have the same problem. I’m paying for a service I can barely use. Very frustrating. Please fix?
Paying 11$ for trash
by stephy705_ on 2020/07/07 16:26
I payed for the Hulu with no ads cause my gosh the ads get old really fast , every 5 minutes there’s some sort of add placement. I’ve had to delete my app twice already all because it doesn’t want to play on my phone at all. I’ve only had this app for two weeks and it gives me so many problems. Like how am I going to pay for the better quality Hulu when I can’t even watch the shows on there due to some ‘error’. They need to fix it, cause I’m about to cancel this subscription and go put my money where I can actually pay for something of quality and be able to watch my shows without having to delete it and download it every time I want to watch something.
I love Hulu but this app needs work
by matisonhnsn on 2020/07/07 14:53
I love Hulu and typically watch on a smart tv or Roku and have no issues, but whenever I try viewing on my phone things get weird. App will randomly shut down and sometimes has extremely long buffering issues. My biggest complaint is that it won’t always recall where I left off so I’m stuck fast forwarding through an episode to find the spot I’m at.
Good but why
by morecupcake on 2020/07/07 14:28
Uta no Prince Sama season 3 I can’t find I watched it and the next thing I know when I wanted to watch it again it was gone can you please put it back on Hulu? Please put it bake on Hulu! Now that I updated it I can’t watch anything! I can’t watch nothing right now is there a problem with Hulu!
Pause and +20 seconds are gone in v7.3
by pixie57 on 2020/07/07 12:59
In v7.3 I can no longer pause. Also, I can only move forward in 10 second increments instead of 20. I didn’t have these problems before the v7.3 upgrade. When Hulu fixes this, I’ll change my rating back to 5stars, because it was a fine app before.
Terrible service
by The beez on 2020/07/07 11:19
Don’t even try connecting with them if you have a problem. This is my only recourse that won’t drain several hours of my life. Don’t add on other services either - better off buying them individually to avoid ads.
Rating
by Đémøn on 2020/07/07 08:42
I really enjoy Hulu but my problem is why is there different prices for “No Adds” or to have access to every thing in the app that’s why I enjoy Netflix better and Disney no adds access to every thing in app
Good but some glitches
by snxbdms on 2020/07/07 05:02
I like the new update but on my phone I won’t let me pause and sometimes when I go to the next episode button I click on the screen and all I see is the bar but who cares.
App works 40% of the time now
by joyprof on 2020/07/07 04:59
I never used to have problems, but the past two months, I’m constantly faced with error messages — on both phone and iPad. What the hell, Hulu?
Great app and great to watch shows and movies
by Jayla . on 2020/07/07 03:00
This is a wonderful app and you should use it, its awesome and cool shows and movies to watch ! I give it 5 stars
Thank u,next
by greenbeanbunny on 2020/07/07 01:26
I paying $6.00 a month and still THE ADS I miss the old hulu😢 and on a LOT of the shows only have some of the seasons like dance moms and toddlers in tiaras only have the last season but I gave one more star because it has ❤️full house ❤️
Why commercials when I’m paying for the app !!
by anoying man on 2020/07/07 00:17
Why I have to see 30 seconds in comercial when we are paying for the app that’s not ok amazon Netflix Disney plus and many other apps when you pay 5 or 20 dlls is no comercial is just annoying !!!
Usual 2nd best
by Blueontarget1 on 2020/07/06 23:04
Always behind others, can’t listen while on lock screen, while unlocked the slightest touch changes the program, trying to figure out what I’m paying for with this service, visually the whole platform stinks.
Issues with Apple TV
by tallboy21 on 2020/07/06 22:42
For the last two weeks, I’ve had to delete and reload the Hulu app on Apple TV to get it to work. Annoying and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Thank you.
Live TV freezes/crashes constantly
by Beckab1077 on 2020/07/06 22:14
I just added Live Tv to my Hulu subscription, but it freezes and crashes at least 10 times a day. Not sure if this is just the live experience or if the Hulu app having some issues.... either way, it’s SUPER annoying to pay over $50 a month for crashing nonsense. If I wanted that, I’d go back to sling. They have a ways to go before this is worth the money.
Constantly Freezes Requiring Reboot
by BJK40915 on 2020/07/06 22:14
Cannot watch more than a few episodes and then the app freezes when trying to go back to “home” or “my stuff”—have to turn iPad off and on again (and re-enter passcode, set up iPencil, etc.) to get the app to work again. Others I know say the same thing happens to them. Fix this bug for God’s sake!
Hulu :(
by jrcagaan on 2020/07/06 21:57
This is good but i think is not worth it because the episode is not complete they didn’t release the lates episode. I recommend u guys to watch on google for free just search “kissanime” you don't need to worry about where did u find the lates episode cuz it’s automatically pop out the new episode. I will stop my subscription to hulu hehe. :)
Ads
by IsaiahBusta on 2020/07/06 21:24
I hate the fact that I have to pay more to get rid of ads, and I hate the fact that when I rewind, I have to rewatch the ads and not skip them the second time. Horrible system, it’s better to get cable than this crap
Same advertising keeps repeating over and over
by smokeylq on 2020/07/06 20:41
NBC Sports is a scam. All other channels work just fine
Bring back the old UI
by MP Killah on 2020/07/06 18:01
I love Hulu. It’s become my primary streaming service. But the latest update with the new iPad UI/HUD is terrible. Please bring back the old version where the play/pause, skip back, and skip forward buttons were in the center of the screen and you could hold to find your exact position. This new version is so counterintuitive and such a pain in the ass to use. BRING BACK THE OLD VERSION!!
Latest update a mess
by Hickory Hill on 2020/07/06 17:09
Update on Apple TV has left me with no working app for the last week. Finally updated my iPhone app this morning and now I have working app there. Neither will get past the logo. There’s no point in paying money for a streaming service we can’t access.
Bring back pause button in middle of screen
by All Good on 2020/07/06 14:29
Good app but latest update moved the play/pause button from middle of the screen where it was incredibly convenient, to a tiny little button in the bottom corner of the screen. It makes the app much more difficult to operate. Fix it please!
awesome app
by yeet_Jose on 2020/07/06 13:28
i love this app but one main problem is that you guys have to many ads is something get on my nerves. Can you guys at least reduce amount of ads please and Thank you :)
Hulu seriously
by anime_! on 2020/07/06 09:01
Too many ads, and season 2 of my hero academia wasn’t even a full season and the 3rd season was all sub no dub BUT it still has a nice layout
Doesn’t work

App never works on Apple TV even though all other apps work.
Keeps Crashing
by Green_eyed_sconiegirl on 2020/07/06 05:39
The past few days the Hulu app keeps crashing. Hopefully the issue gets fixed or I will cancel my account. I wish I could figure out how to report a problem.
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
Beautiful App, but some issues
by theoccasionalreviewer on 2020/04/28 12:07
This app is gorgeous and has a nice interface but with some adjustments it could be so much better. First of all, the app will randomly glitch sometimes and not even load up (an issue which is not even fixed by uninstalling-reinstalling the app sometimes). Secondly- and this is just an issue that I’ve noticed on the website AND the app- it’s basically impossible to find the show details page or episodes once you’re actually in the video. For example, if you clicked on the video from the “Recently Watched” section of the app/site, it only gives you the option to watch the current episode. If you don’t want to watch that episode or you simply want to read about the show, you have to go all the way to the search function and find the show in a different area of the app/website in order to locate the “details” or “episodes” information on the show (a discovery which took me a while to figure out). I think this app/site could benefit from an organizational redesign and could use some glitch fixes but other than that, pretty good.
Can I watch the show and not the commercial on repeat?
by MS5634 on 2019/10/31 16:17
This version has a pretty unfair feature. It used to be once I watched commercials once I could rewind and if it skipped over the commercial break it would just continue as if there wasn’t a commercial but now once if I have to audacity to use the rewind ten second button and it’s only been nine seconds since the last commercial I have to sit through another ninety seconds commercial break. I mean how long do you think it should take to watch a thirty minute program because forty-five to ninety minutes sounds kinda crazy especially since once a commercial starts i have no control over the app. I think you should make it so that once you have seen a commercial you can rewind and fast forward during a commercial. Because now i have no interest in seeing the grudge and that is Hulu’s fault because I have seen one ninety second clip so many times. That’s just an example. Please fix this problem. Just because I didn’t pay for ad-free doesn’t mean I should have to watch all the ads that every ad free customer isn’t watching. Oh and thanks I don’t have time to finish my show now.
Make it easier to switch plans!
by wildbellelover on 2019/10/28 00:43
as a new user i of course decided to go with the cheaper plan to “try it out”. i haven’t even gotten thru the first episode of the show i was dying to watch and i’m already so over all of these ads! the option to upgrade isn’t even on the app.. i had to go log in on the web which again requires way more clicks than necessary.. although after reading reviews i guess it’s a good thing it’s not so easy because apparently you have to wait until your current subscription is cancelled which completes a month later!??? OMG! you’d think you would want to make your new subscribers experience the best.. again you should make it easier to upgrade or start everyone out with the BEST plan first.. and then give them the option to switch once the free trial ends.. just saying.. i don’t plan to cancel right away.. i guess i’ll leave it on during the free trial and use the app if i’m that desperate to watch an episode i’m willing to sit thru the same ads over and over every few minutes while trying to get thru an episode. best believe my subscription will be cancelled as soon as the trial is up! so disappointing! ugh!
Never ending issues
by _tinydancer_ on 2020/04/01 06:48
You would think for app with this many subscribers and this high of a subscription rate (for the live tv) the least they could do is make an app that works. The app has near constant glitches. It often plays the audio of one show while a completely different show plays. It never remembers where you left off in a show so you have to watch the same commercial breaks again. It freezes, it crashes. It has the worst UI. You can’t set shows that you’ve recorded to automatically delete after you’ve watched them so you have to do it manually. Even when you record shows, you can only fast forward through the commercials maybe 25% of the time. One show I record never records the whole episode. Even after I delete it, it stays this way. Then miraculously, after a week, the full episode appears. Seems like this app is perpetually a year behind it’s competitors. I really hope someone reads this and looks into all these perpetual issues, but I’m not holding my breath. Get it together. You owe your paying customers more than this.
Could be way better
by Poshafied! on 2020/03/28 03:19
At first I loved this app then after using it for a awhile I found all the glitches. The time it takes to download a movie and all the buffering makes it difficult to even watch a show or a movie. I pay the extra for no commercials but by the time it buffers 25 times through the movie or show.... I give up. It never used to do this so much but now it’s all the time. I go to the other competition movie app and it doesn’t do it on that app so I know it’s not my internet. Did you get rid of someone that knew what they were doing tech wise??? Also they used to change the movie choices more often and have newer movies, even better that the competition, but now the movies are always the same and all OLD movies and horror film it’s boring and sickening. There used to be more choices, what about PBS, what about getting up to date history channel. I’d like to see some historical dramas and movies!! I pay my fee each month and I’m barely getting good use out of the app. I Really think I’ll discontinue my subscription.
Buffering, Glitches, Selection or Movies and Shows, and ADSS
by Alise Leonardo on 2020/06/06 04:52
Buffering and Glitches• The app has a nice selection of shows and tv shows. But it buffers and glitches A LOT!!! This makes it hard and annoying to watch stuff. It took me 20 minutes to get a movie started. I had to constantly restart the app and exit in and out of the app; to stop the glitches. I’ve checked my WiFi and it works perfectly. You would think with the updates it has they would have already fixed the constant buffering, loading, and glitches. It gets to the point where I can’t, don’t, or want to even bother to use the app. Selection of Movies and Shows• Another problem which isn’t that big is the selection of Movies and Shows. Don’t get me wrong it has an “okay” selection but they don’t update it that much. They don’t have much of the movies or shows I’m looking for. A lot of the shows they have aren’t that popular. I find it hard to not rewatch most of the same stuff. I’ve had this app for a year now and have watched mostly everything I’m interested in. Commercials• The commercials and constant ads in the app make me go CRAZY. There are so many commercials. I just want to watch something without commercials every 10-15 minutes. With all this I recommend Netflix or another app to watch stuff. But if you are looking for a specific show that is anti popular this app probably has it. The app has issues where it gets to the point you don’t want to use it.
Choose Wisely
by AidanMcGrath on 2019/09/13 01:26
Whatever you do, pick the plan you want from the get go. Do not try to change your plan after the fact. It doesn’t work. You will have to cancel your subscription and wait for its termination date - one month later. I didn’t think I minded having ads and then it hits you with these gross 70 second ads. I can’t watch those every 5-8 minutes when I’m just trying to enjoy a show. So I tried to change to the Hulu(no ads) plan but it won’t let me until my old plan terminates. So I tried making another account. Didn’t work; it recognizes that you have another account and says, “would you like to sign in with this one?”. When you hit no it doesn’t go through with the new account and if you hit yes, you weren’t making a new account to begin with. I’ve had this app for maybe an hour and already a huge turnoff. 3/5: the video quality was good in the 5-8 minutes I could stand watching. But most everything else is maddening.
Great Content. Terrible layout.
by Raffopat on 2020/05/01 01:47
I love the shows on this platform. But I run in to so many problems with quickly starting where I left off after my previous view sessions. It takes me a minute or two to get back to the episode I was watching, WHICH IS A PROBLEM I DONT INTO WITH ANY OTHER PLATFORMS. Very disappointed with the customer inference & the interaction I have had with it so far. The way the system works causes strain which SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING. I am a very tech savvy person too. But this app makes it 10x more strenuous to operate. Using this app opposed to others is a terrible experience.. The only reason I continue paying for this is because the content is great. I am very disappointed with the customer interface being a new customer. Its 2020, hope you know how to fix it. Sheesh. I’ll be sure to be talking to my friend about this too. Hopefully they get this fixed up soon. Lots of potential. Terrible platform performance so far. Don’t even get me started when I get gypped by watching 2 long adds in a row. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Brand new customer
by Great Speller on 2020/04/20 18:42
Omg, not political ads! I am a brand-new customer. I took advantage of the $0.99 offer for a year. So far I am quite happy with the service except for one thing. I don’t have a problem with the commercials since I knew it would happen due to the offer price. What I don’t like is the same commercials over and over again. It seems like when watching a program with several episodes, there is a repetition of ads which is, quite honestly, not going to get me out there for those products. There are a few older dramas (and probably sitcoms that aren’t already in syndication) that I would like to watch, namely “Cold Case,” “Boston Public,” “Falcon Crest,” and “Picket Fences.” I’m sure that there are more, but I cannot come up with them at this time. I’ll keep watching. The old shows are usually much better than the reality shows like the Kardashians and Real Housewives that are on now.
PLEASE FIX, APP WONT OPEN,CRASHES EVERY TIME I OPEN IT!!!!
by Jewel Divine on 2020/04/28 18:24
How strange I write a review but App Store won’t post it‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️😡😡😡😡😡 Ever since latest update of week of April 20th 2020, the app crashes every time I click to open it, it won’t open it closes fast, faster than in the blink of an eye!!! This is a paid subscription that I pay more than $130+ a month for, could the developers please fix this asap!! Why should it be necessary to leave a review and never receive a reply and for it to come this far? Don’t you get paid to supervise the application enough to know there’s this huge bug or glitch whatever it is that it won’t let the PAYING CUSTOMER watch the programming without the unnecessary stress?!?!? Will this issue ever be fixed?!?! Going on a week now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t think you want your customers cancelling, let us know what’s going on, update us I think we have a right to know what’s going on and not be in a loophole!!!!! Way too many ads, I pay for Ad Free TV and it’s way too many repeated ads over again!!!! Kids filter should be updated for safer TV!!!!!!
Worst streaming app by far
by Ibrad14 on 2018/06/06 12:24
I should not have to login every time I open the app… Even seconds later after I navigate out of it, when I go back it says there was an error and I need to login again. I still do not like how new shows do not always pop up to the front of my queue. There might be a show that I’m just not in the mood to watch and there are a couple of unwatched episodes… And that stays at the top of my queue. That’s fine until something else new or comes along it should bump it down. I was just getting used to the moronic layouts when all of these other things start happening, I thought we’ll maybe it’s because it’s not an updated app. So I cannot hear only time it just update it. Is there no quality assurance checks before and after you get released? Is there no focus group? Is there no research of what other streaming apps are doing and doing well?
Commercial overload
by Retail mobile Detail on 2019/11/28 16:20
I really like the app but two things turn me off about it. The first is that when picking a show they play too many commercials. Once you pick a show they play 90 secs of commercials, then they play the opening credits for your show. Then they play another set of commercials before playing the show. Then they play 2 more sets of commercials during a show that is only 22-25 mins. After the show is over they play another set of commercials before and after closing credits. I know that it is only 90secs but this adds up and makes me disinterested in watching any shows. The other feature I dislike is that when trying to watch “live tv” even when you pick that option they will make you watch the show from the beginning. Then you have to fast forward to live tv, after watching commercials of course.....
Please Either Fix Your App Or Be Truthful
by Hostess40 on 2020/03/15 03:14
Here’s addition to my last comment - we have an Internet speed up to 1 GB and my husband is a programmer/analyst for a living, so we know the issue isn’t on our end. But will you please upgrade your servers so your app doesn’t constantly idle and lose connection. We pay for no commercials but STILL get them ALL the time. Constantly buffering. I’m a teacher so I used to use this for documentaries but now whatever you did I no longer can. Don’t even get me started on your ‘Continue Watching’ section! I have shows I’ve never watched all over it and can never find the shows I ACTUALLY AM WATCHING! And what the hell is it with eliminating episodes after only watching them once?! I started watching a series, one was Nancy Drew, the rest of my family wanted to watch the older episodes to catch up and they’re gone! What the hell! This is a brand new series people! Either fix your dam app or be honest about how you have things set up! Seriously!
Up next fiasco
by dauhaz on 2019/10/13 05:01
I don’t understand the algorithm behind the episodes listed in “up next”. It is so annoying to have to exit that list and go back to “my stuff” to watch another episode every single time that I cannot give more than two stars. They’re not even in “my stuff”, and why would anyone want to watch random episodes of different shows one after the other instead of watching consecutive episodes of a show? Who does that? But that’s not even the point. I would rather see the new episodes of the shows in “my stuff” in the “up next” list than a bunch of episodes of random shows. For instance, I see the option of adding individual episodes to a list called “my episodes”, which cannot be accessed anywhere. Basically a blackhole. Why not add the episodes in “my episodes” to “up next” and give users the ability to manage the “my episodes” list? Just a thought...
SO MANY GLITCHES!
by 🌸❤️❤️🌸❤️❤️🌸 on 2020/05/22 05:03
Great app, but there are a lot of bugs that need to me fixed. First off, the skip, I tried to resume an episode I was watching and every time I would go to skip back to where I was, it would restart the episode. Also, the ad problem needs to be fixed, it keeps playing the ads, then replaying them. Like it would have the ads run as normal, then replay them for no reason. Also there needs to be an easier way to change plans. Skipping is rather annoying as well because every time I skip forward or back it sends me back to where I was! It has even started to black out my screen at certain points in movies and TV shows. I’m very upset about this because all I want to do is watch a show, and it won’t let me! Please fix all of this!
New app design terrible
by Unholyfatman on 2017/10/02 06:38
I don't normally take time out day to simply bash apps on iTunes but this new app redesign was so freaking terrible I couldn't get the bad taste out of my mouth so here I am. Tiles really guys seriously and not just tiles poor and restrictive ways to view shows I can't just get a bunch of small icons like before that give me optimal information no I need to thumb through every single tile to see anything well I guess the days of me discovering new shows is over because even browsing your data base is a nightmare so on my iPad Pro 12.9 I see 4 tiles at a time where as before I would see like 20 or more on my old iPad 9.7 inch this is absurd I advise if you do not want to lose people just in the settings simply add a legacy mode switch to the UI so us who aren't mouth breathing idiots can enjoy browsing your selection. Ah I feel a bit better now we'll back to struggling through your terrible UI which will most likely lead to me cancelling my subscription
Newest update causes more problems
by lpr2012 on 2019/10/22 00:16
Update: Down to one star. - Resume now never works. It always starts the episode back at the start, even on the same device. The thumbnail will show something like 70%, say “Resume,” but tapping will just start at the network logo and you get to scrub to try and find your spot. - Crashes in the background on TV OS every time it’s launched. - When you have Live TV with no commercials, about 50% of the time, the system will play the live on-demand version of a show instead of the no commercials version. Killing the app and restarting will re-roll for you. Update: New regressions. Do you all need help testing basics? - If you stop a show mid-stride, coming back to the interface shows the “resume” button and a progress bar at the right place. Tapping resume starts the show over. Happens about 90% of the time on TV and iPhone/iPad apps. The update again causes more usability bugs. - Links from the TV app no longer work again, and watch percentage is no longer updated back. Happens about 20% of the time. - Resume function no longer works. Stopping a video and resuming it later on Apple TV causes the video to start at the beginning about 50% of the time. Seems to work fine on iPad and iPhone. - App crashes when video is paused and the screen saver comes on or the screen locks. Happens about 30% of the time.
$5.99 for ads and terrible stream quality
by didntlikeit on 2019/09/20 17:02
This app has great content to be able to stream. But I hate that this app has prioritized ads over streaming connection. The app lags out almost 1/5 times I’m trying to watch something after an ad plays. I would say it might me my WiFi or data connection but Netflix doesn’t have this issue at all. All ads play perfectly but the content when streaming times out all the time. I pay $5.99 for tv like experience with all this content and the only real experience I’m getting is ads that I’m apparently paying for. I’m ending my subscription because this company puts advertising over quality of streaming which is what I had hoped to pay for. I don’t mind ads here and there. But I don’t want to watch ads every time because the app crashed on the streaming connection with pop up errors because only ads work. The app never crashes during an advertisement. Why is that?
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!
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.
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.
It WAS a good app!
by D-Pill on 2019/10/23 02:35
I’ve been using it for a year now and had no major issues. I pay for the Hulu+live tv and like how I can watch tv on my phone, laptop or actual tv. (Very handy during football and basketball season) Thought ever since it got updated (Sept. 2019) it’s been having major issues. The app completely exits from itself in the middle of a show, or the screen would go dark with a loading bar. Only to pop back up rewinding itself 20 seconds, playing then going dark again. Getting stuck in an annoying endless loop. I really like the app but if that is is the kind of service I’m going to keep having, especially paying $45/month. I might as well go back to my satellite provider. Now I don’t want to sound like I’m ranting but I ACTUALLY like this app and if it doesn’t improve soon, I’m going to have to part ways with it. So for now enjoy the 2 STARS.
Bugs
by AllieH1008 on 2017/09/15 02:07
Every time I try to open the app on my phone, it says "something is wrong: try again." Extremely frustrating. I've tried reinstalling and updating it, and it's the same problem. It won't work. Update: the previous problem has gone away, but with the new update, I accidentally fast forward my show probably about ten times in each sitting somehow. Its extremely easy to do. I end up watching extra commercials because of this, and then when I try to find my spot again, I have to sit through a second set of commercials if I click multiple times looking for the right scene. It adds a LOT of commercials to my viewing time. I also have similar concerns to others reviews, as it used to be easy to find my shows and find new things I'd be interested in, but now it's not as intuitive, and it's more difficult to quickly find things.
You Really Need To Let People Take Screenshots
by Batman Kittyface on 2019/05/04 02:04
Obviously whoever added the feature which makes the screen completely black every time you take a screenshot has little to no experience with the internet. No content pirate has ever thought “ah, yes, i will capture this movie frame by frame and then splice these frames together, then record the audio separately and dub it over my newly spliced video and hope it syncs up”. That’s ludicrous. The inability to take screenshots not only serves no purpose for the actual creators of the movies or TV shows, it’s also a great hinderance to people who produce content like fanart and fan theories who would typically use such screenshots as references. By not allowing screenshots, you are actually turning legitimate customers of your content towards illegal streaming sites because This Is The Only Way To Take Screenshots Of Our Favourite Shows And Movies. No one wins. It’s frankly kind of bizarre that anyone ever thought this was a good idea.
Terrible forward and rewind functionality
by Terrible forward / rewind tool on 2017/10/04 00:53
The latest update rolled out an upgrade to the forward and rewind tool. On the surface it seems like a lot of fun and simple to use, but in practice the new tool is a nightmare. It is incredibly easy to accidentally rewind to the beginning or end of the show simply by tapping the screen when it's gone dark or trying to pull up details on the next episode. You can correct your mistake either because it immediately sends you back into a 60-90 second commercial break that locks the forward / rewind tool. Once you've finished the break and can go back to your place, you have to watch another 60-90 second commercial break to return to your original placement. It's so incredibly frustrating I gave up and went back to the desktop experience. This tool needs more testing and revisions so it's not so easy to trigger.
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.
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.
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?
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.
UI suggestions....
by Adam H.. on 2019/11/20 04:42
I can’t say anything about commercials and switching plans because I already have the Ad free version and I have live tv in other means, but, during playback, PLEASE... Make the swipe to rewind/fast forward inactive until one swipes up enough first, or some other gesture to reduce unintentional swipes. I can’t tell you how many times I mess up the playback position while trying to pick up my one iPad without a case or cover because I tap the screen edge then bump the slider significantly. Make the video not pause when going from Picture in Picture back to full screen if it’s already playing. The whole point of going full screen is to continue viewing on the full screen. I know it can be done...competitor apps do it.
Autoplay Not Working!!!
by Kdove98 on 2019/08/09 03:02
Autoplay is not working and randomly stops one episode in while other times the thing will play all night long when I fall asleep. The app is poorly designed and simple features like the ability to skip credit scenes and title sequences are missing yet the price is still the same NFlix. Why do you have to pay for a headache? How can this company not build an app properly? You have billions of dollars. Last time I canceled because the app was falling apart and riddled with error messages that even uninstalling couldn’t fix on my phone and tablet. And they have no appropriate customer service. You guys have no respect for your customers and that’s why you’ll always be second or simply lose them over time to better streaming services. Maybe I’ll just cancel every other month and keep signing up for the free first month option so I can cheat you as much as you’re cheating me.
Good! But, a few issues
by Anon.2018 on 2018/10/31 13:30
I do not like the user interface set up all that much. For example, let’s say I just watched a series. I close app then re-open it at a later time. I expect to have that series somewhere on my dashboard but it’s not. In fact I typically have to retype it in the search box just to find it again. Second, I’m watching a show and I click to go to new episode; however, the GUI is gone! No play, backwards, forward, pause, scroll bar...nothing but an “X.” I contacted IT support and they didn’t know anything. So, it’s typical that I’ll have to refresh the page or log out and log in five to fifteen times over a few hours. But, in the end for the price and volume of shows it’s worth putting up with the glitches.
Can’t play in background
by Dragon vale man on 2017/11/21 05:01
I’m not going to say the new update is terrible because I honestly don’t think it is. I however have been annoyed at the fact that the tv shows can not be played in the background on the device. Normally people will listen to music as they use their device. However, for me that is tv shows. Because I have watched this particular show so much I don’t need to physically see it anymore, I have it playing in the background. Like another reviewer said, no one should be expected to stay glued to a show for an extended amount of time. That user wanted PIP and his PIP was revived. Last night even I was able to play in the background starting Saturday the 18th and ending the 19th. Please bring this back or install it if what I was experiencing was a bug. Thank you for you time.
Apply TV app is horrendous
by nathanalf on 2017/10/06 16:44
I honestly don’t even know where to begin. All the complaints below apply to the Apple TV app as that is the primary way I use it, and I can’t speak to the iPhone / iPad versions. Half the time clicking on a title does nothing, especially in the “up next” pop up when an episode ends, and if you let the timer run down it replays the episode you just watched instead of skipping to the next one. Half the time when you do play an episode either the sound is a second off from the video (only fix is force quitting the app). Also have had the video appear not the play, click to play again and now two streams of the same episode are playing (one on top of the other) resulting in double audio - and the only fix is force quitting the app. I swear half of the time I use this app it is force quitting the app and waiting for it to reload. Navigation is a HOT mess. Where are the simple badges saying which shows have a new episode available? Why is the “my stuff” category not available to filter by new episodes available? Why do I need to wait for the app to “fetch new recommendations” every single time I open it up? I love love LOVE hulu’s service, and in the past the app has been very solid. However once this redesign rolled out I feel like the quality / reliability of the app has greatly suffered.
Better mobile experience than on home TV
by nicki names on 2019/07/03 20:03
The mobile app is pretty good. Navigation is thoughtful and fairly well-organized. The mobile app also allows you to immediately press an icon in the center of the screen to go straight to the live broadcast instead of starting at the beginning for shows in your recording list. For some strange reason, that button is missing in the Fire tv version of the app. As a result, I have to manually hold the right button to fast forward to get to the live stream. Annoying, and particularly confusing for my elderly relatives who wonder why the show is not live and on a delay. This needs to be more like navigating and consuming on a cable provider (can’t believe I just said that).
Need to make it more compatible with iPhone X
by wen_d_ta on 2017/12/16 19:01
Besides everyone’s concern about the sensitivity on the rewind and forward, which I agree is soooooo frustrating, I just got the iPhone X and some shows don’t take up the full screen of the phone which is the whole point of the phone! The shows need to expand through the whole screen. also it would be very helpful if they could but the time as well on the iPhone 7 when you tapped of the screen you would see the time come down and now I have to click out of the app to see what time it is and that’s frustrating as well... I know it’s a process and you’re trying i hope my suggestions help!
Where are all the seasons at???
by PotatoeKing on 2018/03/28 21:10
I'm very disappointed with the fact that almost all the shows you have never finish the show. They're always missing seasons unless it's a 1/2 season show! This is very dumb not only because we cannot finish our show BUT shouldn't all those ads you put in the middle of our shows make you enough money to give us a full series??!!!! This is very annoying. For example one of my shows had to end on an episode where there is still so much story to be told, but I could not experience this show because of this terrible idea. This is ABSOLUETLY outrageous considering we're supposed to be able to "catch up on all our favorite shows". This slogan is a HUGE LIE. If you want an app where you can stop watching in the middle of a plot on a show BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T SPEND SOME OF ALL THAT MONEY THEY MAKE GIVING US SOME GOSH DARN ENDINGS TO FINISH OUR SHOWS!!!!!😡
Giving 5 because many fixes have been done
by Fantasticallyella on 2018/09/21 20:25
Firstly, it’s 5 to try and help weigh in against all the people who complained about losing HDMI because it’s been fixed. And on that note thank god the HDMI lightning connector works again. There was no way I was gonna budge and spring for additional technology when I’m broke A/F all the time. The overall selection seems to be getting more bunk. Maybe start adopting shows like The Last Man on Earth as Netflix has done with Arrested Development for example. That being said I still find shows on here worth the amount I pay for the subscription. Smoothish transitions from episode to episode. I think the forward / backward 10 and 30 seconds is odd I’m used to the 1:1 that most video players use. Lastly I think the selection screen - at least on a mobile device - is too large and requires too much scrolling. Again comparing to Netflix, while browsing you can view several show title cards and multiple categories at once. For the regular streamers that’s great when I’m trying to just generally peruse highlighted shows.
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
News subscriber
by Ranget1 on 2019/07/31 16:14
Just switched from sling last weekend so my rating is based on limited experience... So far I’ve found navigating the apps (on my fire stick and the iOS mobile app) to be cumbersome. The live tv controls are nothing like any cable, satellite, or other streaming tv options I have used... the guide is not good and only has next episodes as far future viewing so you have to search if you looking to record something. And going in and out of the guide and watching live tv is nothing short of frustrating to this point. I’m sure it will get easier with repetition but really... my wife will never have it down. And then there’s the no AMC or Paramount channels. The good thing is I can cancel at any time and there is a lot of content so hopefully they can improve the TV guide soon!
Great live TV, not the best navigation
by nickgreene25 on 2018/10/24 01:14
It’s a bulky interface that requires too many clicks to achieve what your looking for. This has been a great alternative to Cable, and we’re happy with the quality of streaming, but the guide and actions are not very simple. Would be easier if there are options to go straight to live TV at startup rather than having to go from main menu every time. Better sorting options for the guide would be nice too, like maybe having a favorites sections. They have “news” and “sports” channel guides, but often times they leave off channels that it might not deem in those categories, even if it is. Just needs a little refining for a better experience, but overall it’s better than paying for cable.
Needs a fix but good
by Lugubrinilily on 2019/12/01 20:00
I love the app. Easy interface with a great selection but, commercials please fix them, I’m okay with the breaks and it makes sense but why another set of commercials just because I rewinded it 10 seconds? It doesn’t make sense, it should skip passed them since I already watched them I shouldn’t be penalized for wanting to replay a part of the show. Is there a wider variety of commercials also? I seem to always get the same ones. Another thing that really really needs fixing is the buffering icon in the middle of the screen when watching on my laptop, if I so as rewind a few seconds back it will stay in the middle of the screen and my only option to get rid of it is to reload the page, not only does that not continue where I left off but it’s could also be susceptible to ANOTHER COMMERCIAL BREAK. Please fix
Random issues with no pattern
by roegner on 2019/05/28 19:06
So I need subtitles, but sometimes when a commercial break is over the subtitles will randomly stop working. Now the audio cut out completely for no apparent reason. I think it’s also very irritating when I open or slide into my notifications screen or quick settings screen that the show I’m watching won’t play in the background, and just pause automatically. Furthermore, it is astonishingly annoying how if I slightly move or tap something on screen that my video will slide away. I feel like there should be an arrow specifically for minimizing the video, instead of relying on everything to slide. Lastly, if I slide out of a video for just a few seconds, I shouldn’t have to watch 90 seconds of commercials all over again to just continue my show. Please resolve these issues, thank you.
Five stars EXCEPT
by 👍🏼💪🏼👌🏼 on 2018/09/25 08:48
Five stars...Except the latest update. instead of the movie just automatically switching to horizontal view when you push play, it stays small and brings up the list of shows you’ve watched previously/are in the middle of. Why would I want to see those while I’m watching a show? They take up over half the screen.... It’s stupid and annoying that I have to click a million buttons just to get it to full screen. And half the time the full screen button doesn’t work cause it’s so small the heat from my finger bypasses it and just makes the play/pause/full screen options disappear—so then I have to tap it again.
What the hell
by Marshire on 2017/11/22 11:51
So, I’m one of those people that likes to rewind on my favorite scene. So, I loved it when more streaming services added the fast forward and rewind ten seconds buttons. However, is there any reason that they need to be in the middle of the screen blocking everything? Does the screen need to be dimmed when it does this? Short answer. NO. What worse is when when your pausing or using the 10sec but and hit anywhere else on the screen, either to close the dimming or by accident, the show will skip to wherever you touched. Dudes that’s what the bar at the bottom is for. You tried to make something more convenient and instead made it aggravating as hell. Literally just had the show start over twice because of this idiotic feature and I wouldn’t let me skip the tv shows channel thing that before. So, I ended up watching it three times. Seriously, not useful at all.
Awful
by zhansen06 on 2017/09/14 00:18
The old app worked fine but was very clunky. I didn't think an update could be this bad. This app is difficult to use and is not intuitive at all. Oftentimes it errors out when playing the next episode of a show, forcing me to grab a device and attempt to play it again. I really just cannot stand the way this app is organized now. Sure, it's pretty, but the "Home" tab lists a SINGLE show. Across an entire iPad display. A complete waste of screen real estate. "My stuff" tab shows a list of your shows that you enjoy watching but it is organized in a complete non-categorical way. Very frustrating. Finally when you search for a show you want to watch (the best and easiest way to find anything, given this app's poor design), you have two small boxes with the last episode you left off on, and the latest episode. Once again, poor use of a huge iPad screen. You have tabs at the top for "episodes", but unless you know better, "seasons" is buried inside there as a small link. Constructive feedback? I suppose change "episodes" into a "seasons" button or something of the sort. However this won't change the overall design of the app being so poor and the waste of screen space. The old app was very old and also very clunky, BUT at least it was laid out logically.
Anyone else disappointed with new update?
by Mooveychick on 2018/05/12 02:19
Just curious if anybody else is having trouble with the new update. There have been many times that I’ve been watching a show on my iPad, then all of a sudden it stops and an error message comes up saying I can’t watch the show in my region. I’m in the United States people! And then I try other shows and it gives me that same message. I’m also having trouble with the show playing and then all of a sudden it jumps back to the very beginning where the television network logo comes up and then it will jump back to where I was watching. I don’t know what’s going on. It was working fine prior to this update
Good and bad
by Quentin Acosta on 2019/07/27 08:46
Ok so I’ve had this for about a month now I like that it has a lot of different things but since I’m paying for this service I’m I’m sure others are as well I believe we are not getting our money’s worth. For instance why is it that the fairy tale anime has been out for yrs and you guys only have the first 2 and the very last season dubbed in English like come on to be honest all the anime’s should have a dubbed version , and what’s up with your movies you guys need a more vast variety of them because like a handful of good ones again this are just some things I think is in your power of fixing so for everyone’s sake please fix it thank you
