Fixing my account
by :) yeas on 2019/05/24 06:36
Why can’t I upgrade my account via the app? Like seriously? Where is the logic in that... Netflix, crunchy roll, amazon, and even YouTube Red/premium let me re-up my account or even upgrade it IN THE APP!!!! I don’t have a computer to use to fix that or change it. So... maybe consider changing it? Like normal companies...
Tv shows
by moj530 on 2019/05/24 06:15
The only thing I don’t like is Gotham comes out with a new season and I can’t watch it because after a Serrano period of time the episodes disappear. Also the anima I watch new seasons come out and there’s no dub episodes.
Inappropriate commercials
by antivaxsupermom on 2019/05/24 02:56
This couple kisses in a commercial while I was watching a show with my kids. Very inappropriate for their young minds😡😡
Can’t watch on more than 1tv
by krogers18 on 2019/05/24 02:47
Can’t watch on more than 1tv
Update sucked
by MellieD9 on 2019/05/24 01:56
Constantly crashes after I updated. Let’s me watch for about two minutes then crashes. Thanks for nothing Hulu
Poor Video Play
by 1931151 on 2019/05/24 00:37
For the past few days any movie or show I’ve tried to watch has buffered every 2-3 minutes and eventually stops. A pop-up message appears telling me there’s and error, and I am forced to exit. This happens regardless of a strong WiFi connection and I don’t understand what the point is in me paying to watch movies I can’t watch.
It is okay when it works...
by Jjjjoooiiippgx on 2019/05/23 22:40
I use this app for primary tv with Hulu Live. The app is alright when it actually wants to play. The video freezes a lot. It’s not my WiFi connection or internet service, it’s the app itself. Sometimes I want to cancel my paid subscription. Hulu isn’t standing out compared to the its competitors. I beg Hulu developers to make a better app.
Hulu
by Extream57 on 2019/05/23 22:29
Hulu is amazing but I have one problem with it the ads. If u rewind after watching an add it makes you watch the add again
Okay but too many ads too often
by patek777 on 2019/05/23 22:21
Wish the ads weren’t every 10 minutes literally w the Spotify subscription. It’s a little excessive. Other than that it’s great. Don’t include Hulu with Spotify if you’re going to put ads every 10 minutes. It’s annoying
Hulu is awesome
by Webster 4 on 2019/05/23 20:50
Hulu is awesome
This app has been buggy lately
by nblair702 on 2019/05/23 18:28
Constant crashes, unable to binge watch shows, getting random errors. I’m about to cancel my subscription because what good is an app if it almost NEVER works!!! Just started happening within the last 2 weeks. So either fix or I will take my subscription dollars elsewhere. 😡
Not loading
by bri666666 on 2019/05/23 17:05
I have internet and WiFi and it still won’t load fix it!
It’s not the best..
by Lauleismi on 2019/05/23 15:52
Paying more for the Hulu live is definitely worth it because we save about $60/month. However.... It works when it wants and more so than not, it’ll just stop working. It’s a bit annoying but since I don’t care about tv that much and we also have Netflix we end up going to that instead. Hopefully things will start getting better or buh-bye Hulu.
VERY UNPLEASED
by austinm334 on 2019/05/23 15:22
i was watching all the star wars movies and then i wake up in the morning and hulu took them off there platform..
Broken update
by Hope123hope123 on 2019/05/23 15:19
Hulu was working fine prior to this latest update. Now the shows come up with ERROR. I can’t even go to support because the circle just rolls. I guess no sense in leaving things working.
Hulu is okay..needs work
by kanopka on 2019/05/23 15:03
Hulu is great when it actually works. Half the time I spend reloading because it’s constantly freezing and saying popping up with errors. Currently searching for another streaming service that works more then 50% of the time especially for what I pay. And I have a great internet connection so Hulu Live is pretty frustrating.
Shows go UNAVAILABLE often
by lokybear on 2019/05/23 14:37
I have apple so you’d think apps like this would have no problems in their utilization, but for some reason shows keep popping up UNAVAILABLE for some time... annoying.
Crappy lately
by betternotbeawaste on 2019/05/23 14:19
This app has been terrible lately. Monday it wouldn’t play certain shows- I would just see a black screen, will never play when connected to WiFi, and now it won’t play anything at all. It keeps saying restart my phone. This is ridiculous!
Disappointing
by jessemmmmmmmm on 2019/05/23 14:19
This app crashes CONSTANTLY. It takes forever for videos to open and then you’re lucky if your video plays the whole way through without giving up in the middle. Besides that, the app is completely unintuitive. Navigation is complicated and time consuming. Cannot easily access different titles. Not worth spending many minutes a day trying to get one video to play. It’s much easier to use Netflix by a factor of 8 million.
slow.
by Pianist_ on 2019/05/23 14:15
love hulu. gets really slow when my internet is working just fine on other apps like netflix, youtube, etc. only on my phone.
Suggestion
by Vicky52773919107 on 2019/05/23 13:53
Love Hulu! The app is a little slow but my biggest suggestion would be to add a feature which allows you to download episodes to your iPad or phone to watch while off of WiFi or traveling on a plane! Thanks!
No real guide and no ability to continue watching a show while surfing the guide
by DenMeck on 2019/05/23 13:16
Wish there was a real guide like Directv and also wish you could keep watching or even listening to show while surfing the guide.
Just get Netflix
by Nick L__ on 2019/05/23 12:25
The app constantly crashes after every. Single. Episode. Then not only does it crash it won’t connect to the internet while Netflix does at the same time. On top of that I sometimes still have to sit through adds even though I pay for ad free. Joke of an app.
Vpn
by dontreenlist on 2019/05/23 10:53
Hulu is a waste of money at this point, being in Korea they blocked vpn usage
Fix Please!!! It’s been Days!!! Fix!!!
by Usingtoo on 2019/05/23 09:59
Again, it’s been Days why isn’t this Fixed?!!! What’s up? Since the newest update Hulu is UNPLAYABLE!!! Either the ad/picture for the show just comes up or the screen is just black. So Disney has taken over another business and this is what we get? People don’t pay to get nothing! Fix!!!
Back again
by CourtFromThe90s on 2019/05/23 08:41
Hulu for iPad is so trash. Like seriously? I’ve made like 4 reviews and it’s always something wrong. Playback doesn’t work consistently, it never has my most recent watched show at the top, I can watch like 7 episodes of something but if I close out the app it’ll still start 7 episodes prior. Honestly with all these bugs and troubles, I shouldn’t be getting such long or commercials at all. And to people that’s giving it 5 stars but the comment says otherwise, stop giving it 5 stars if it hasn’t earned it. They’re seeing 4.5/5 when it should be 2.5/5.
Constantly crashes
by Murrymurphhh on 2019/05/23 04:49
My shows are always crashing in the middle of them and forces me to restart my show, and then it doesn’t even keep my place and starts it back over at the beginning. Both on the mobile app and online and on my tv. Ugh.
Bugs
by cogert on 2019/05/23 04:25
Up till about 2 days ago when i did the new update i havent had any issues, but after the update im barely able to watch videos without getting an error code. Please fix this issue it is very annoying and hulu is the only place i can watch full seasons of anime
i’m kinda mad
by fuckyachickennuggets on 2019/05/23 02:30
first of all why is there only genres that separate the shows? like, here’s a list of 5,000 comedy tv shows, now click every single show one at a time just to see what it’s about, and if you don’t want to watch it? it’s ok there’s only 4,999 other shows you have to individually look at. it’ll only take 3 BILLION YEARS. why can’t we continue watching the show on our phone while we browse other things on hulu, even the desktop version allows you to do that, even youtube lets you do that. And what’s with the three 80 second ads every 6 minutes in a 24 minute show??? And why can’t i screen shot the show? the worst thing i can do is make a meme out of it, even so, that’s more publicity than hulu is giving that show. And WHO CARES ABOUT CHEVY LIKE DUDE I CANT EVEN DRIVE I DONT CARE every single ad is completely irrelevant. like here i am crying and then it’s like “COME TO THE SIGN N DRIVE SALES EVENT” at least do an ad that has to do with the show, or the emotions the episode causes. That’s a much better way to make money. also i just want to mention that YOUTUBE HAS A SKIP ADS BUTTON AND THE ADS ARE ALWAYS LIKE 15 SECONDS PLUS ITS FREE do you know how bad it looks that a streaming service that already makes you pay to watch makes you pay to skip ads that are 16x longer than a free website’s ads for which you don’t have to pay to have a skip button. come man who’s on your marketing team? who’s the one who decided that? FIRE THEM. makes the company look bad and makes the customers not want to use the service anymore. these ads are excessively long, you have to look through an entire genre of shows to find something you want to watch, and if you want to just look at other shows you have to exit out of the show completely and you can’t watch the show while you’re looking. hulu, why are you making this so hard? i want to keep watching on hulu but this is ridiculous... why are the features on the desktop version better than the app lol?? sweetie you’re trying too hard, just get rid of those gross updates and shorten the ads (or add a skip button to any ad over 25 seconds) it ruins the show if it’s too long. when you get back to the show you’re just like “huh? wait, what- what show is this? what happened before this? just- what?” it’s jarring, it pulls you out of the show.
I can’t watch shrek 2!
by im shrek 2 giy on 2019/05/23 02:17
So I watched shrek and then I wanted to watch the sequel so I searched it and i saw you can watch this with hbo add on I’m planned on getting it but I can’t find it anywhere
Won’t play
by arideout94 on 2019/05/23 00:57
Can’t play more than a few minutes of whatever I’m watching before an error message pops up and it closes the show.
Perfect
by KaseyStorm on 2019/05/23 00:44
Absolutely love the series lineup on Hulu. Between that and the movies I can barely make a decision! Perfect choices
Errors
by MLhrey on 2019/05/22 22:50
I am now unable to enjoy this app. Constantly getting error messages,buffering and the reconnection errors involving router. Recent one Hulu Error code RunWat14. What the hell hulu!
Needs downloadable content
by nice guy 99 on 2019/05/22 21:45
Hulu would be great if it fixed the amount of adds and put in downloads
Ads
by Why_doe_you_mean on 2019/05/22 21:01
The ads always give me 90 seconds and I never have time to finish whatever I’m watching!
Horrible also why are there so many scathing reviews with 5 stars??
by Queenofsnack on 2019/05/22 20:35
Horrible app Horrible interface Horribly unreliable It’s 2019 there are several streaming services that work seamlessly. Why isn’t this one of them?
Won’t work
by Ghxjcjx on 2019/05/22 17:27
Everything is “Currently Unavailable.” Tried switching off WiFi and even powering off my device but nothing worked. Used to be a great app but if I can’t watch anything then it’s obviously useless. If the issue doesn’t get resolved soon I will be canceling Hulu my membership.
Hulu Internet TV
by mandrie2 on 2019/05/22 16:41
Hulu is one of the most fascinating and exciting entertainment Internet Providers with explosive contents and line-ups in the media industry.
Currently Unavailable
by sooooo sick of this on 2019/05/22 16:23
It happens every other week that the app crashes and every single title says “Currently Unavailable”. What’s the point of paying for this app if you can’t even access it if you want. I’m not the only person having this issue. Why does Hulu not acknowledge a crash? Why do the online down site not say anything? Why can’t I access a single movie title, or tv show episode? I’ve updated it, restarted the application AND my phone a thousand times and for what?!
Bugs bugs bugs
by Sudb12348dh on 2019/05/22 16:01
Bought premium because I don’t want to see ads, however the app crashes every once in a while. It’s only been two days and I have been constantly blocked out of my shows which occurs to be unable to play for some reason. Frankly, never used a single app that bug out as often as this one do. Please fix it. Thanks.
Oh my god
by I'm rich$$$$$$$$$&$$$ on 2019/05/22 15:18
I’m a happy right now. You guys actually fixed the ‘no content available’ glitch and I’m so proud of you Hulu!
Steven universe??
by moo2707 on 2019/05/22 14:40
Hulu is my favorite but I really need to know if or when their going to put Steven universe season 5 on Hulu. It’s my favorite show and I can’t handle the cliff hanger. Anybody know??
It’s difficult just to get an episode to work
by king spiffy on 2019/05/22 13:24
I got this app about 6 months ago and it’s great, but lately it’s been acting up so much. Losing my place when I go back to finish an episode, the episodes may not ever load, or it’ll just pop up with message saying that it can’t be played right now and I should try turning my phone on and off. I don’t know if this is just me experiencing this but...I love the app, it’s just been bugging out lately.
What happened???
by tamaylam on 2019/05/22 11:11
Use to be able to minimize screen with picture in picture and search through app and still watch current programming. Now if you try as the picture in picture goes away. So the app no longer supports picture in picture within app.
HORRIBLE WITH CHROMECAST

FREAKING HORRIBLE WITH CHROMECAST
Error Messages Every Night
by Kandjelkovich on 2019/05/22 07:03
I enjoy falling asleep to shows and that’s kind of hard when I continue to get error messages. I can’t watch anything and I’m starting to wonder why Im paying for a service that checks out. I turned off my wifi and it still got errors. Please fix the app!!
Too many ads.
by Mitzi bby on 2019/05/22 04:54
Hulu has WAYYY too many ads.

Update
by maybelynne on 2019/05/22 04:15
This app needs an update. Been waiting for new ones for a while now. Might end up looking for a new one if i just keep on waiting for add ons
Can’t get in, fix your system.
by Mangaelf1997 on 2019/05/22 03:48
I signed up using App Store on my phone for no commercials while the Hulu on Spotify was on, and once I turned off the Hulu on Spotify I can’t login the app or the site.
Great features , price & easy to use !
by PitBrad1 on 2019/05/22 02:57
You won’t need techno- nerds to enjoy Hulu ! My wife is electronically challenged & learned easily to maneuver her way around all the stations & special features of Hulu. We kissed Cable TV costs bye bye ! & saving $100 a month too ! Add other free apps with our Smart TV and we have endless TV & new programs undiscovered for years ! Great value - set us free too !
Half the shows I want to watch won’t work.
by Nicholas T. on 2019/05/22 02:45
I’ve search far and wide for a fix to my issue and I can’t find anything helpful. All the shows I watch on PC or my Nintendo Switch work fine all the time. However, when I try to watch the same shows on my phone, half of them refuse to work. Actual example: South Park, Family Guy, Drake and Josh all work, I click on the show and it brings up the show menu. When I try shows like Attack on Titan or One Punch Man, the screen will continually say “The internet connection appears to be offline” and pushing retry does nothing. This has been going on for months. Does not matter if I’m on WiFi, or Cellular data. Please fix your broken phone app, compared to pc browser and consoles, the phone app is garbage.
Features stope working
by Edgeblackstar on 2019/05/22 02:26
It doesn’t save the progress you make on watching show. And auto subtitle doesn’t work. I have to look for the next episode after I get now Hulu and put back the time where I left off cause it always restart. I have to watch many more commercials getting back to my point of the episode.
Okay app, but buggy & flawed
by TCAllen07 on 2019/05/22 01:56
Overall functional & okay. But sometimes buttons just don’t work, or ads repeats, etc. Biggest pain: the SLIGHTEST touch downward closes what you’re watching. And it’s so sensitive that a calm breeze or maybe just THINKING it is enough to close your show. And what’s worse: you can’t turn it off / disable the gesture. Often the pause overlay (where screen dims and all the buttons are visible) just stays there permanently, until you touch the screen again, risking closing it like mentioned before. Sometimes the next-episode option at the end of a show doesn’t show up, and it’s always difficult to press, usually pausing the credits instead of playing the next episode. Also, if you miss something and rewind a few seconds, it’ll sometimes make you watch the same ads again that you just saw. Hulu assumes it’s your fault and makes you watch various commercial breaks to start at the point in the video you were just recently watching. Plus if there’s content near the end of an episode, it’ll assume you watched everything and make you watch commercials in order to fast-forward to that end-of-episode content.
Unable to subscribe
by Kulay Wolf on 2019/05/22 01:36
I tried to subscribe but no luck. No matter how many times I uninstall and reinstall, I was unable to subscribe to Hulu via iTunes.
This is the best app in the world
by Phlammons on 2019/05/22 01:26
I love this as much as I love Netflix. Maybe even more. With sooooooooooo many shows and movies to my liking. this is the best streaming service. The only complaint I have is that some shows like the simpsons should have early seasons.
Hulu admits “doesn’t work with iPad”
by duuzduuz on 2019/05/22 01:07
Good luck if you have an iPad. App won’t play,stating “location error”
Video
by Fjdffbttjfdjdjdsbefdhfhogufvc on 2019/05/21 23:37
A lot of times the videos don’t play, and it crashes after ads. It gets so annoying watching the ads over and over again.
TOO MANY ADS
by chappilinda51971 on 2019/05/21 23:34
I did the math. Legitimately more than 5 minutes of ads per episode. RIDICULOUS.
pls update
by Bobcat75322 on 2019/05/21 23:23
after the update, the shows dont play anympre
Not bad but not great
by Chasity L. Davis on 2019/05/21 23:00
It has an ok selection of movies but it doesn’t let you download any movies so, you can only use the app while online. I had some glitches here and there but what app doesn’t? I don’t like it anymore than Netflix. I would like to see newer movies on Hulu and I’d like to see a wider selection for younger viewers.
It’s a video app & the videos won’t play...
by KatieWG1009 on 2019/05/21 23:00
Updated the app and now videos won’t play. I’ve tried closing out the app and reopening it. I’ve tried turning off my iPad and restarting it. I’ve tried deleting the app and reinstalling it. I even tried getting help from their chat bot and was told, sorry we’re having trouble with the system. What good is a streaming app if it won’t actually stream videos?!
Crash
by MIKEB. on 2019/05/21 22:57
Just updated crashes every time I open the app.
Everything is unavailable
by Blue_Cat (is awesome) on 2019/05/21 21:27
I only just started having this problem today, until this everything was perfect. Everything I click on is “Currently Unavailable” How, may I ask, can I use your app when nothing works? Fix this.
Useable
by Colton42000 on 2019/05/21 21:20
Honestly not mobile friendly, on any other platform id recommend hulu but it just does not seem compatible for a mobile device. Especially the website, its almost impossible to even get logged in while getting a recurring notification that to many people are logged in yet no one else has this account. So when i try and fix this I’m required to use their broken site. Point is it’s a solid way to watch anything you want until you run into a simple problem that apparently cannot be fixed.
Awful
by jurrasicquest on 2019/05/21 20:41
This app is inconsistent at best. The play back errors are constant. Fix your app Hulu.
bad
by onewhosighs on 2019/05/21 20:12
Downloaded and made an account today to watch something. Go to watch said something and it just shows the cover for that show. Won’t play the episode at all. Tried re installing and all that jazz. Turned on my wifi - and nothing. So.. sort of ridiculous how a company as big as hulu has this big of a flaw in their mobile app.
One huge error...
by Su11yK on 2019/05/21 20:12
Won’t play the videos. Blank black screen. All other apps / Netflix etc work fine on my device. I’ve even deleted the app and reinstalled. SO frustrating.
Worst streaming service ever
by screwhulu on 2019/05/21 19:56
I never write reviews, but I feel like I should since the developers over at Hulu are clearly not getting the message. This is hands down the worst streaming service I have ever used. I forgot that the reason I cancelled my subscription four years ago was that the quality was unwatchably bad: video takes forever to start playing, buffers repeatedly, and closes frequently with an error message. Not to mention that despite paying, you still have to watch a ton of ads (which is the only thing that seems to play smoothly). I see that nothing has changed in the time since I’ve been blissfully enjoying Prime, Netflix, and YouTube with none of these problems, so I will be cancelling once more. Bye, Hulu - put some time into your product and maybe I’ll come back. P.S. The app interface is clunky.
Please fix this
by upset and frastrated! on 2019/05/21 19:53
I get on Hulu to watch my shows but every time I wan to watch something it takes so long to load and I have to exit off Hulu like 4 times to get the show going It’s frustrating not been able to see my shows
Not very filtered
by hallenbeck12 on 2019/05/21 19:52
I made this review because When I want to watch something, half of the time the shows or movies are in Spanish. I live in America and speak English. I hope the channel filter gets improved.
Isn’t working

Bluetooth headsets failure

Since the latest update it no longer works with any Bluetooth speaker or headset I own. It literally will not load any show unless I turn it all off, reset my phone and reopen app. As someone who is nearly deaf, this makes this app about pointless now because the internal speaker system on the iPhone is complete crap with a volume that is flat out not loud enough.
Ugh
by Victoriaburr on 2019/05/21 19:15
This app is NOT good for binge steamers. It takes 30 mins to even get the next episode to play no matter where I am. I can be on home WiFi, work WiFi, cellular.. it doesn’t matter. And it’s clearly only problematic on iPhone because my husband standing right beside me was able to open and play immediately on his note 8. At this point I’m wishing my show was on Netflix.
Ugh
by angrylady1235 on 2019/05/21 18:58
I would really like this app as it has the best shows, but I can never even watch them because the app crashes every time. Or it just loads forever. So frustrating
Slow app bad auto play
by moogalo on 2019/05/21 18:54
I have been using my Hulu account a lot lately. I’ve finished my classes, so I’m catching up on my shows. I set up my phone to watch a show, I have auto play on, but when a show ends, I have issues getting the next episode to play. Let alone getting an episode to start. Considering cancelling my subscription. I pay $50 a month for Hulu with live tv and I am often forced to watch a different app like YouTube just because my shows won’t load. Garbage app.
Not impressed
by Redsoxj01 on 2019/05/21 18:54
I had only had the app for a day & so far I am not impressed. There is a good selection of shows, if you can get them to play. If I have to stop in the middle of an episode and I try to resume it later it will not play. Not expecting this with all the hype that Hulu has.
Horrible app
by Nkelly613 on 2019/05/21 18:46
Glitches and freezes constantly. Never plays two shows back to back with out closing the app sometimes I have to put it in airplane mode sometimes I have to restart my phone and still won’t play the next episode!!! This app is so irritating!
Annoying
by jordaneholl on 2019/05/21 18:40
I just got it and it was fine for a few days and now it won’t play anything but the ads and that’s not very useful.
Annoying
by Zombie hitman on 2019/05/21 18:38
With all these updates you would think the app would want to run.
?????
by jellied toast on 2019/05/21 18:27
ever since I updated the app, episodes will not play I dont get it all im trying to do is watch king of the hill I click on the ep, and stare at a black screen that is not king of the hill i dont know what I have to do to get this crazy thing to work the app will not respond to my desperate pleas of "come on, come on" so im fresh out of ideas and king of the hill-less
Stop sucking
by UUriahCW on 2019/05/21 18:12
Every time I finish watching one show I have to delete the app then reinstall it just to watch the next episode
P-TS207

P-TS207 constant error watching after update! Beyond annoying.
New update is terrible
by alexywilcoxyqe on 2019/05/21 17:59
Since the new update nothing will load, just a black screen. I’ve tried on WiFi, off WiFi and still the same issues
Don’t update!!!
by twilikatie on 2019/05/21 17:55
I use this app everyday while I’m working as I work very long shifts. Love the app and the service. But I updated the app today and now it won’t load any of my shows. When I do finally get something to play it crashes. It takes 5-10 minutes of playing around with the app, restarting my iPad (my signal strength is perfect as I’m on a big hill near cell towers) just to get one video to play only to have it crash and have to restart the process. Don’t allow it to update!!!
Not available to Watch anything
by Firegirlf16 on 2019/05/21 17:51
It won’t let me watch any of my shows what the hell did you guys do you messed it up even more.
Nothing will play
by .:;,.:;, on 2019/05/21 17:46
I love Hulu but for the past day and a half anything I try to watch won’t play. I’ve tried restarting my app, logging out and back in, and deleting and reinstalling the app. Nothing helped please fix this!
Loading Issues
by Techygal9 on 2019/05/21 17:33
When I open the Hulu app to watch Attack on Titan the show now never loads on my iPad Pro or my iPhone XS. But if I try to watch some show Hulu recommends I have no play back issues. For a while I thought it may be an internet issue but I have no issues on watching my programs through my Netflix account. I tried Hulu because of that Black Friday deal but I probably won’t keep the service because of these issues.
Constant Crashing
by Docket4 on 2019/05/21 17:33
This app should be good, but crashes constantly. It always happens when I’m watching live TV. I would say it’s not functional. It is also not the WiFi at my house, Hulu TV works great on my Chromebook and my Roku devices. I would actually recommend Hulu for live TV, just not if you frequently use Apple products.
No downloads or “skip intro”
by g.cor on 2019/05/21 17:24
I like how on Netflix you can download some movies/shows and there’s a skip intro button for when you’re binge watching and don’t want to keep playing the opening credits. Those are my biggest qualms with the Hulu app - not having something similar.
The commercials
by YungSkywalker551 on 2019/05/21 17:17
I feel like this app is great, it has nice amount of tv shows and movies to select from. The problem comes in when your so into the show that your watching and a minute long commercial come on that happens at least four times while watching a tv show. If you’ll be able to get rid of the commercials or at least make them appear less while watching this app would definitely be 5 stars.
Great app when it works
by khashayar61 on 2019/05/21 17:11
50% of the times the videos don’t bother loading. How I know? I put my phone on Airplane mode and the app doesn’t even tell me connection is lost while “loading next video” . This happens randomly:/
Unavailable
by ogmil on 2019/05/21 17:07
EVERYTHING says “currently unavailable”.
Doesn’t work
by TK III on 2019/05/21 17:04
Hey Hulu, can you make an app that actually works? Nothing plays on my phone. I have the latest version and update and yada yada yada, so can you please figure it out? Thanks.

An Affront to the Art of User Interface Design
by Episkopos 304 on 2017/10/22 04:28
To describe Hulu’s new user interface as torturous barely scratches the surface. Touching the screen to access the player controls causes the entire image to be obscured. The controls remain on the screen for several seconds after playback resumes, leading the user to touch the screen in an attempt to make them go away (so the video can be viewed); this usually results in changing the position of the “playhead” or “timeline” control, skipping to some other random part of the program. There is simply no excuse for this poor of a design. But at least Library navigation is utterly bewildering, indicating the developers are fully committed to making the app unusable in any respect. Airplay support has also been removed, which is simply hateful.
Making me want to reconnect the cord...
by HawkSevenSix on 2019/05/19 17:10
App is constantly crashing my WiFi connection on my new iPad Pro after a few moments of viewing. Even on other WiFi networks. I can stream with anything else on the same device. Don’t give me the old “its your router/internet service” crap. Everything else in my house connected to that WiFi works just fine. And what’s worse, you won’t even let me stream from the internet on the iPad, or give me the option to view the full site. I got better reliability from a certain satellite provider that yes, cost more, but gave me much better customer service. Oh and the error messages are laughable. “Why don’t you try restarting your router or your device and see if that helps” to paraphrase. It didn’t. Tried reinstalling the app and even resetting the device to factory settings, including the routers. I pay for no commercials and still are FORCED to watch them for what seems to be about everything. What a joke. Get it together.
TERRIBLE
by secretMonopoly on 2019/04/29 22:15
This is terrible. They have way to many adds encouraging you to buy premium. I’m fine with adds I understand the need to make money through advertisement, although there are problems that if your WiFi cuts connection soon after an add you’ll have to re watch the add. This wouldn’t be that bad except the adds are 85-95 seconds each. During a 42 minute program you’ll experience 5, 80 second adds. Over the course of a season you’ll watch on average 6 hours of adds and over the duration of a series have fun wasting 20 hours of your life watching adds. This is if the WiFi connection doesn’t make you watch more time worth of adds. You do not only see more adds this decreases the speed in which you can watch shows, only wasting your time. I get adds, but know the definition of excessive and know where the line is of enjoyable content. I am still paying for subscription not paying to watch 15 hours of adds a series.
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
Please fix
by DerrellMNE7 on 2018/11/07 02:16
The app is good overall but there’s one really annoying bug, the rewind and fast forward features only work for going back 10 seconds or forward 30 seconds at a time. When I hold the buttons to try to move back/forward for any time longer than that the show will start to load and then jump back to the same spot I was trying to move from. This is extremely annoying when trying to watch recorded sports and trying to skip past the pregame shows which usually last 30 minutes or so. So you either watch the pregame show unnecessarily or you have to press the fast forward button 100 times to skip to the action. Please fix these problem
Love the App but ....
by Rachel and Micah's Mom on 2018/10/23 16:52
Love the app but hate that it has a habit of crashing. Also even when my internet connection is good the app has trouble connecting. Really enjoy taking my entertainment experience every where I go. ..... but dislike the fact that I have to connect to my home internet every month to prove that I still live where I say I do. This is a big problem for me because I am not home often, and if I forget to connect when I am home , then I cannot use the app again until I return to log on again on my home network. My address is the same. My billing address is the same. WHY O WHY must I prove that I haven’t moved to another location. And where is AMC, great entertainment there, please add it to the line up !!!
Please fix....
by Moni.Moore on 2018/09/01 01:06
I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo
by tilleyrs on 2017/10/14 06:16
I'm the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it's to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your "swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards" function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
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.
It ok, I think
by Mikasc on 2018/11/14 20:33
The app is amazing, I can watch all my favorite shows and movies. The only problem I have is that every time I try to watch anything, it says that there’s nothing to watch there. And I did watch like 5 seasons yet and it’s telling me that. Now here’s that thing about my issues, either it’s my mom and she’s blocking the app so it’s not Allowing me to watch it. But if that was the case, then I wouldn’t be able to get into the app at all. But once again I am not sure allowing me to watch it. But I am not sure, and if that is not the case, hey my mom and she’s block the app. Then I have no complaints, but if not that is my only complaint. In conclusion, without my problems. This app is overall a five-star.
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.
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?
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!!!😡
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!
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.
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.
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
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.
Shows watched
by Flyerthanfly1 on 2018/10/24 02:11
For some reason, several of my shows display episodes unwatched since the first season, first episode even if I’m all caught up. I’ve tried re-watching the last/most current episode of each show to change the status to “all caught up” and I’m still not getting that status. It would be helpful if I could check which episodes I’ve already seen or check that I’m all caught up so I don’t have to try and re-watch episodes and I can be notified of new episodes. It’s really annoying to have to re-watch episodes or even trying to fast forward through episodes, but having to watch commercials to fast forward. Please don’t make me re-watch all episodes from the series premiere just to show that I’m all caught up. Please fix.
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.
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?
chrome cast not working after update
by GO4MJ on 2018/05/25 04:00
loved the app. brag and told everyone about it and to subscribe. literally NO ISSUES and completely diff experience than any of these reviews. after recent update, can no longer use with my chrome cast and unfortunately i am a single and working mother and I can’t sit online to try and fix your app for you with customer service. the whole point in cutting off cable is to not deal with service issues and people and to spend more time doing things that matter. I will give it until my next billing cycle and cancel if it isn’t fixed. UPDATE: after writing this review, my issue has been fixed. and the updates are wonderful and friendly.
Playback problems
by SPOOK-e on 2018/04/27 16:41
I would often forward the video about hafway through an episode of a series by accident, and I would then have to go through 90 seconds of commercials to fix my mistake. Because this app allows you to forward/forward a video by tapping anywhere on screen, this makes it easier for me to repeat this mistake. I think if where was a different methods to move through videos would help, that I won’t mess up again and have to wait through so many ads all because I tried to clear a text and accidentally moved from the beginning of an episode to near the end. Besides this issue, this app works great for me and I haven’t encountered any other issues.
Good but has one problem
by Superheroes are awesome on 2019/03/31 03:35
This app is very good if you have a premium subscription which isn’t extremely expensive compared to other streaming services. The way they market this service is truthful. But I share a subscription with other people who watch different shows than me and whenever I load up the app it recommends me their intended recommendations. It’s similar to Netflix where you still have the separate name accounts but the only thing you have to yourself is the name and the shows and movies in “my stuff”. Also if someone watched the same show as me, while sharing a subscription, you’ll pick up where they left off. Make the accounts more privatized please.
JUST PATHETIC!!!
by SpartaMix on 2018/12/16 20:38
The app is ok but could certainly benefit from small quality of life improvements such as: adding a “WATCH FROM BEGINNING” BUTTON! Another thing I need to point out. I’m subscribed to sprint and therefore have the free version of the app. The issue here lies with the ad commercials and rewind/forward buttons: at random, during any episode, both buttons become disabled with a prompt showing “rewind/forward is not allowed during commercials” but I’m not in the middle of any commercials!!!!! I want to watch something from the beginning and I can’t because 1) there is no button with the option 2) the app is riddled with bugs and glitches! JUST RIDICULOUS!
Remove Picture in Picture
by KismetKat on 2017/09/17 14:18
How could they have removed the most useful feature? I can no longer multi-task while watching a program because they removed Picture in Picture support. And, if you accidentally touch the left side of the screen in certain spots, the video starts over again. When you try to recover and drag you finger along the time bar, the same picture shows in the background so you have no idea if you've gotten back the the same o,Ave you were before the video reset. Not sure why they don't check out the competition (Netflix) who does this very well. Oh, and when I upgraded to the new app I had to fill out all my interests again and it seems to have lost my viewing history. Terrible experience!!
Frustrating
by Pandoramom on 2017/12/26 21:17
Two main things that irk me about the newest version of the app... first, as I’ve read many people complain about, the fact that the bar across the bottom that shows the progress of the episode extends through the whole screen, so if you bump the screen or tap somewhere a little off, it advances or rewinds the show to a different place. So frustrating. Second issue, it used to be that you almost got “credit” for watching the commercials the first time, so if you rewinded, either on purpose or accidentally, it would skip the commercials you already watched the first time and just play. Now if you bump the screen and it rewinds, not only do you have to rewatch the commercials but it seems like they are longer! Both of these issues make watching on the app very frustrating and not enjoyable. It needs to be fixed!
Horrible Update.
by MiseruzP on 2018/01/17 18:29
I like the old version. This version has a horrible layout. The rewind and fast forward feature are horrible. When they first updated the app I was watching a show. I tapped the screen to pause it and it rewound. That’s frustrating. I sometimes have to rewind to see something and sometimes it’s right before a commercial break. As you know, you can’t rewind on a commercial break. When I do rewind it plays the part of the show I needed and goes to a commercial AGAIN!! It never used to replay the commercials!! I don’t know if it’s because of the “no commercial” version they have now. Maybe they have to make up not showing as many commercials in the “no commercials” version or what. But, Mama no likey. After my first encounter with the new app I stayed off for months! My shoes are piling up and I basically have to use this app. I just miss the old version.
Worst ux please go back to previous version
by Dmnyu on 2018/02/10 04:13
I can’t find the content I’m looking for! It might look nicer design wise. But the user experience is terrible. I touch the screen by mistake and the video jumps to a different time line. Then the commercials appear and I can’t go back to where I was until I finish watching some terrible commercials. It makes me angry to use this app it’s really buggy with zero thought about the user. And the sad part is that the old version (similar to the web version you have on your website) was great. I loved using it. It was easy to find content. Simple to navigate. Simple to rate. Simple to move to a different time in the video. Why did yo have to complicate it??? I don’t care about design and fancy fonts...I care about having a seamless user experience and watching my videos with zero frustration. Please go back to the older version!!
absolutely horrible
by skyeasher on 2018/06/22 15:36
i would rate this 0 stars if i could. the fast forward/rewind is extremely frustrating and makes this app almost IMPOSSIBLE to use. i really recommend you DONT get this app. the makers don’t listen to the suggestions the viewers have and i can guarantee they don’t read the reviews. the amount of ads on this app is almost overwhelming, and having to rewatch commercials is so annoying. every time i try to watch a show that’s 1 hour, it ends up taking 3 hours to finish because of watching and rewatching commercials, i can’t fast forward or rewind correctly, and frankly, the update didn’t help at all. the price is also very high compared to the quality of what you’re purchasing. all in all 0/10 app, would not recommend to anyone who actually has stuff to do and can’t spend 2 or more hours watching 1 episode at a time
I’m Not Happy At All
by Megan Mad on 2018/09/29 11:49
Currently I’m having the trouble with how the app won’t load ANYTHING. What’s the point of paying for a service to watch tv shows when the shows won’t load to be able to watch them? The commercials are VERY repetitive, and don’t even get me started on how long they take to load, sometimes it takes just as long as it takes to load up the episodes. I was astonished when I learned there wasn’t a an option to pay to get rid of the commercials, because now I know that EVERYONE has to live through the pain that I have. I can not believe how terribly glitchy this app is, it’s practically unusable, and it makes the experience of watching my favorite shows completely unbearable. PLEASE fix this, we are paying to use this service and we deserve better.
Pretty annoyed about the latest update
by TychaBrahe on 2018/09/13 05:28
Running the app on iPhone. As of five hours ago it would go full screen when I rotated my phone and had portrait lock off. Now I have to press an icon on screen. Decreasing utility is NOT an enhancement. Because of this, the app will only go full screen with the volume buttons at the bottom. Thanks, but sometimes I put my phone down to the right of the outlet, and I don't want my charging cable wrapped around my phone. Also, with the volume buttons on the bottom I can no longer adjust the sound without picking up my phone. Again, decreasing utility is NOT an enhancement.
Over commercialization successful.
by nicknamesnottakenjustwanttostp on 2018/10/24 23:32
I’m a capitalist I get trying to squeeze a little more profit out of your service, but this is taking it too far. Then you make it worse by making FF or RR anywhere near the commercials an invitation to watch the whole set of commercials, 200+ seconds of commercials to be exact, again! Oh and you manage to get through the commercials to start watching your show and the app locks up. You have to restart the app. Then you restart your show. Remember those commercials you watched right before the app locked up? Yep. Better get ready to sit through those same commercials again. Mind you all this is on the less commercials plan that costs extra. I was really happy with the live TV plan until you went nuts with the commercials. I’m gonna try other services like PlayStation Vue or Sling.
Previous version was better
by MichelleeRuiz on 2017/11/04 05:32
HATE how there is an Account tab but you cant do anything, all it says it to go to the site. What’s the point of it being there if you can’t do anything anyways? This should have been available a looonnggg time ago. Also, the new update made it worse, it was good before. To be brief, all the other reviewers list the same problems that I would. Also this has nothig to do with this update but it would be nice if you could make the next episode start automatically after the episode your watching ends instead of going through all the credits.
Best app I’ve seen
by TheTank421 on 2017/11/11 01:15
Everyone else complaining about commercials and missing content when rewinding or ff. There is an option to have no commercials but these poor scrubs are too cheap to pay the extra couple dollars. And they complain about problems that only exist because they create them from nothing. It’s a great app, and those who give it bad ratings, just know that they are those people that give EVERY app a bad rating because they aren’t tech savvy and are mad at the world. Nothing in this world is perfect and never will be, stop complaining about everything and give accurate responses, like me.
Not user friendly and buggy
by FatBoy1185 on 2017/10/26 22:11
It takes a while to get used to this app but it’s not intuitive at all. Like, trying to figure out how to see a specific episode, or even just trying to skip to the next episode. The other issue is that it keeps getting stuck in subtitles mode. It used to be that you’d have to turn them off every episode because they’d magically come on. Now they magically come on and you can’t turn them off. So you have to close the app after every episode and re open it again so the the subtitles go away. The other crappy thing is that if you pause the show and then touch anywhere on the screen the show jumps to a different spot on the timeline. You end up constantly changing where you’re at in the show or movie accidentally. Maybe it’s just me. Who knows. But this app needs work
Get ready to scroll
by demonduck77 on 2017/09/28 00:30
Great variety in programming, but the UI is ridiculous. You should not have to scroll through the same menu over and again. It is completely unacceptable to have to scroll through the same programs because your place is not held. Let's say you are scrolling through HBO movies and open a movie whose title starts with M. Add it to your watch list and back out to the previous menu, and it drops you all the way back at A. You are forced to scroll through all of the same programming again and again. This is with the latest update on the newest model iPad.
Counterintuitive Garbage
by ottonomy on 2018/04/27 19:58
Please go back to the old old app version from before you thought you could reinvent the wheel. It worked. Everyone liked it. No one was confused. No one was accidentally whisked to the wrong part of a show, and forced to watch the same commercials all over again. Yes, this latest update has made a marginal improvement over the last absolutely inexcusable embarrassment of an update. It’s merely somewhat horrible now. Here’s an idea: Just let me tap or drag on the transport bar like every other video player app in existence. It works. It takes no effort to learn. It never does anything unpredictable. And it doesn’t require starting a drag over more than once just to reach the desired portion of a show. Please please please go back to the old old version, and don’t try to fix this worthless piece of garbage.
Rewind/Fast forward
by sci-fi love on 2017/11/02 04:11
I hate that you can’t get a completely full screen, it drives me nuts, but the absolute worst thing that needs to be changed ASAP is the rewind fast forward thing. If you tape ANYWHERE or if there’s a fingerprint mark on your screens and you try to fix it, even if it’s paused it rewinds or fast forwards all the way to that point in the show and then you end up watching commercials again, which I’ve done countless times. Also, it even fast forwards to the next episode by accident which I’ve done several times. Then you have to go back to your last episode and find out where on earth you were. There should at least be an option to undo your rewind or fast forward if it does so so easily. Please change as soon as possible.
Love it!
by Nacho-Gamer on 2018/12/21 10:11
I’ve had issues in the past but it seems that they actually read the reviews and fix them. I had an issues where I would get logged out for NO reason. No longer an issue so thanks. I would love to see you guys add a download feature without charging us extra. You know you can watch videos offline. I would also love to see that we can make actual account changes. Some people have not have access to a computer to do account changes. You could make more money by allowing people to subscribe to channels and what not. Please consider these!
Trash app
by lolohaley on 2018/10/08 04:26
Your app is trash. It constantly has errors and outages, I pay for the service and still have streaming errors that have nothing to do with my internet service. I say once again, your app is trash. The content is poorly organized when it actually works, and new content is difficult to find which leads me to watching the same things. Needs improvement to content discovery, needs improvement to overall serviceability. Continued errors will lead to members searching elsewhere to find what they want to watch. Why would I continue to get in the app in hopes that it will work when I can use another service that never gives me problems and allows me better access to content that I might want to watch. Needs some real overhauling but thanks for the cheeky messages about updates

Fixing my account
by :) yeas on 2019/05/24 06:36
Why can’t I upgrade my account via the app? Like seriously? Where is the logic in that... Netflix, crunchy roll, amazon, and even YouTube Red/premium let me re-up my account or even upgrade it IN THE APP!!!! I don’t have a computer to use to fix that or change it. So... maybe consider changing it? Like normal companies...
Tv shows
by moj530 on 2019/05/24 06:15
The only thing I don’t like is Gotham comes out with a new season and I can’t watch it because after a Serrano period of time the episodes disappear. Also the anima I watch new seasons come out and there’s no dub episodes.
Inappropriate commercials
by antivaxsupermom on 2019/05/24 02:56
This couple kisses in a commercial while I was watching a show with my kids. Very inappropriate for their young minds😡😡
Can’t watch on more than 1tv

Can’t watch on more than 1tv
Update sucked
by MellieD9 on 2019/05/24 01:56
Constantly crashes after I updated. Let’s me watch for about two minutes then crashes. Thanks for nothing Hulu
Poor Video Play
by 1931151 on 2019/05/24 00:37
For the past few days any movie or show I’ve tried to watch has buffered every 2-3 minutes and eventually stops. A pop-up message appears telling me there’s and error, and I am forced to exit. This happens regardless of a strong WiFi connection and I don’t understand what the point is in me paying to watch movies I can’t watch.
It is okay when it works...
by Jjjjoooiiippgx on 2019/05/23 22:40
I use this app for primary tv with Hulu Live. The app is alright when it actually wants to play. The video freezes a lot. It’s not my WiFi connection or internet service, it’s the app itself. Sometimes I want to cancel my paid subscription. Hulu isn’t standing out compared to the its competitors. I beg Hulu developers to make a better app.
Hulu
by Extream57 on 2019/05/23 22:29
Hulu is amazing but I have one problem with it the ads. If u rewind after watching an add it makes you watch the add again
Okay but too many ads too often
by patek777 on 2019/05/23 22:21
Wish the ads weren’t every 10 minutes literally w the Spotify subscription. It’s a little excessive. Other than that it’s great. Don’t include Hulu with Spotify if you’re going to put ads every 10 minutes. It’s annoying
Hulu is awesome
by Webster 4 on 2019/05/23 20:50
Hulu is awesome
This app has been buggy lately
by nblair702 on 2019/05/23 18:28
Constant crashes, unable to binge watch shows, getting random errors. I’m about to cancel my subscription because what good is an app if it almost NEVER works!!! Just started happening within the last 2 weeks. So either fix or I will take my subscription dollars elsewhere. 😡
Not loading
by bri666666 on 2019/05/23 17:05
I have internet and WiFi and it still won’t load fix it!
It’s not the best..
by Lauleismi on 2019/05/23 15:52
Paying more for the Hulu live is definitely worth it because we save about $60/month. However.... It works when it wants and more so than not, it’ll just stop working. It’s a bit annoying but since I don’t care about tv that much and we also have Netflix we end up going to that instead. Hopefully things will start getting better or buh-bye Hulu.
VERY UNPLEASED
by austinm334 on 2019/05/23 15:22
i was watching all the star wars movies and then i wake up in the morning and hulu took them off there platform..
Broken update
by Hope123hope123 on 2019/05/23 15:19
Hulu was working fine prior to this latest update. Now the shows come up with ERROR. I can’t even go to support because the circle just rolls. I guess no sense in leaving things working.
Hulu is okay..needs work
by kanopka on 2019/05/23 15:03
Hulu is great when it actually works. Half the time I spend reloading because it’s constantly freezing and saying popping up with errors. Currently searching for another streaming service that works more then 50% of the time especially for what I pay. And I have a great internet connection so Hulu Live is pretty frustrating.
Shows go UNAVAILABLE often
by lokybear on 2019/05/23 14:37
I have apple so you’d think apps like this would have no problems in their utilization, but for some reason shows keep popping up UNAVAILABLE for some time... annoying.
Crappy lately
by betternotbeawaste on 2019/05/23 14:19
This app has been terrible lately. Monday it wouldn’t play certain shows- I would just see a black screen, will never play when connected to WiFi, and now it won’t play anything at all. It keeps saying restart my phone. This is ridiculous!
Disappointing
by jessemmmmmmmm on 2019/05/23 14:19
This app crashes CONSTANTLY. It takes forever for videos to open and then you’re lucky if your video plays the whole way through without giving up in the middle. Besides that, the app is completely unintuitive. Navigation is complicated and time consuming. Cannot easily access different titles. Not worth spending many minutes a day trying to get one video to play. It’s much easier to use Netflix by a factor of 8 million.
slow.
by Pianist_ on 2019/05/23 14:15
love hulu. gets really slow when my internet is working just fine on other apps like netflix, youtube, etc. only on my phone.
Suggestion
by Vicky52773919107 on 2019/05/23 13:53
Love Hulu! The app is a little slow but my biggest suggestion would be to add a feature which allows you to download episodes to your iPad or phone to watch while off of WiFi or traveling on a plane! Thanks!
No real guide and no ability to continue watching a show while surfing the guide
by DenMeck on 2019/05/23 13:16
Wish there was a real guide like Directv and also wish you could keep watching or even listening to show while surfing the guide.
Just get Netflix
by Nick L__ on 2019/05/23 12:25
The app constantly crashes after every. Single. Episode. Then not only does it crash it won’t connect to the internet while Netflix does at the same time. On top of that I sometimes still have to sit through adds even though I pay for ad free. Joke of an app.
Vpn
by dontreenlist on 2019/05/23 10:53
Hulu is a waste of money at this point, being in Korea they blocked vpn usage
Fix Please!!! It’s been Days!!! Fix!!!
by Usingtoo on 2019/05/23 09:59
Again, it’s been Days why isn’t this Fixed?!!! What’s up? Since the newest update Hulu is UNPLAYABLE!!! Either the ad/picture for the show just comes up or the screen is just black. So Disney has taken over another business and this is what we get? People don’t pay to get nothing! Fix!!!
Back again
by CourtFromThe90s on 2019/05/23 08:41
Hulu for iPad is so trash. Like seriously? I’ve made like 4 reviews and it’s always something wrong. Playback doesn’t work consistently, it never has my most recent watched show at the top, I can watch like 7 episodes of something but if I close out the app it’ll still start 7 episodes prior. Honestly with all these bugs and troubles, I shouldn’t be getting such long or commercials at all. And to people that’s giving it 5 stars but the comment says otherwise, stop giving it 5 stars if it hasn’t earned it. They’re seeing 4.5/5 when it should be 2.5/5.
Constantly crashes
by Murrymurphhh on 2019/05/23 04:49
My shows are always crashing in the middle of them and forces me to restart my show, and then it doesn’t even keep my place and starts it back over at the beginning. Both on the mobile app and online and on my tv. Ugh.
Bugs
by cogert on 2019/05/23 04:25
Up till about 2 days ago when i did the new update i havent had any issues, but after the update im barely able to watch videos without getting an error code. Please fix this issue it is very annoying and hulu is the only place i can watch full seasons of anime
i’m kinda mad
by fuckyachickennuggets on 2019/05/23 02:30
first of all why is there only genres that separate the shows? like, here’s a list of 5,000 comedy tv shows, now click every single show one at a time just to see what it’s about, and if you don’t want to watch it? it’s ok there’s only 4,999 other shows you have to individually look at. it’ll only take 3 BILLION YEARS. why can’t we continue watching the show on our phone while we browse other things on hulu, even the desktop version allows you to do that, even youtube lets you do that. And what’s with the three 80 second ads every 6 minutes in a 24 minute show??? And why can’t i screen shot the show? the worst thing i can do is make a meme out of it, even so, that’s more publicity than hulu is giving that show. And WHO CARES ABOUT CHEVY LIKE DUDE I CANT EVEN DRIVE I DONT CARE every single ad is completely irrelevant. like here i am crying and then it’s like “COME TO THE SIGN N DRIVE SALES EVENT” at least do an ad that has to do with the show, or the emotions the episode causes. That’s a much better way to make money. also i just want to mention that YOUTUBE HAS A SKIP ADS BUTTON AND THE ADS ARE ALWAYS LIKE 15 SECONDS PLUS ITS FREE do you know how bad it looks that a streaming service that already makes you pay to watch makes you pay to skip ads that are 16x longer than a free website’s ads for which you don’t have to pay to have a skip button. come man who’s on your marketing team? who’s the one who decided that? FIRE THEM. makes the company look bad and makes the customers not want to use the service anymore. these ads are excessively long, you have to look through an entire genre of shows to find something you want to watch, and if you want to just look at other shows you have to exit out of the show completely and you can’t watch the show while you’re looking. hulu, why are you making this so hard? i want to keep watching on hulu but this is ridiculous... why are the features on the desktop version better than the app lol?? sweetie you’re trying too hard, just get rid of those gross updates and shorten the ads (or add a skip button to any ad over 25 seconds) it ruins the show if it’s too long. when you get back to the show you’re just like “huh? wait, what- what show is this? what happened before this? just- what?” it’s jarring, it pulls you out of the show.
I can’t watch shrek 2!

Won’t play

Can’t play more than a few minutes of whatever I’m watching before an error message pops up and it closes the show.
Perfect
by KaseyStorm on 2019/05/23 00:44
Absolutely love the series lineup on Hulu. Between that and the movies I can barely make a decision! Perfect choices
Errors
by MLhrey on 2019/05/22 22:50
I am now unable to enjoy this app. Constantly getting error messages,buffering and the reconnection errors involving router. Recent one Hulu Error code RunWat14. What the hell hulu!
Needs downloadable content

Ads

The ads always give me 90 seconds and I never have time to finish whatever I’m watching!
Horrible also why are there so many scathing reviews with 5 stars??

Won’t work
by Ghxjcjx on 2019/05/22 17:27
Everything is “Currently Unavailable.” Tried switching off WiFi and even powering off my device but nothing worked. Used to be a great app but if I can’t watch anything then it’s obviously useless. If the issue doesn’t get resolved soon I will be canceling Hulu my membership.
Hulu Internet TV
by mandrie2 on 2019/05/22 16:41
Hulu is one of the most fascinating and exciting entertainment Internet Providers with explosive contents and line-ups in the media industry.
Currently Unavailable
by sooooo sick of this on 2019/05/22 16:23
It happens every other week that the app crashes and every single title says “Currently Unavailable”. What’s the point of paying for this app if you can’t even access it if you want. I’m not the only person having this issue. Why does Hulu not acknowledge a crash? Why do the online down site not say anything? Why can’t I access a single movie title, or tv show episode? I’ve updated it, restarted the application AND my phone a thousand times and for what?!
Bugs bugs bugs
by Sudb12348dh on 2019/05/22 16:01
Bought premium because I don’t want to see ads, however the app crashes every once in a while. It’s only been two days and I have been constantly blocked out of my shows which occurs to be unable to play for some reason. Frankly, never used a single app that bug out as often as this one do. Please fix it. Thanks.
Oh my god

It’s difficult just to get an episode to work
by king spiffy on 2019/05/22 13:24
I got this app about 6 months ago and it’s great, but lately it’s been acting up so much. Losing my place when I go back to finish an episode, the episodes may not ever load, or it’ll just pop up with message saying that it can’t be played right now and I should try turning my phone on and off. I don’t know if this is just me experiencing this but...I love the app, it’s just been bugging out lately.
What happened???
by tamaylam on 2019/05/22 11:11
Use to be able to minimize screen with picture in picture and search through app and still watch current programming. Now if you try as the picture in picture goes away. So the app no longer supports picture in picture within app.

I enjoy falling asleep to shows and that’s kind of hard when I continue to get error messages. I can’t watch anything and I’m starting to wonder why Im paying for a service that checks out. I turned off my wifi and it still got errors. Please fix the app!!

Can’t get in, fix your system.

You won’t need techno- nerds to enjoy Hulu ! My wife is electronically challenged & learned easily to maneuver her way around all the stations & special features of Hulu. We kissed Cable TV costs bye bye ! & saving $100 a month too ! Add other free apps with our Smart TV and we have endless TV & new programs undiscovered for years ! Great value - set us free too !
Half the shows I want to watch won’t work.
by Nicholas T. on 2019/05/22 02:45
I’ve search far and wide for a fix to my issue and I can’t find anything helpful. All the shows I watch on PC or my Nintendo Switch work fine all the time. However, when I try to watch the same shows on my phone, half of them refuse to work. Actual example: South Park, Family Guy, Drake and Josh all work, I click on the show and it brings up the show menu. When I try shows like Attack on Titan or One Punch Man, the screen will continually say “The internet connection appears to be offline” and pushing retry does nothing. This has been going on for months. Does not matter if I’m on WiFi, or Cellular data. Please fix your broken phone app, compared to pc browser and consoles, the phone app is garbage.
Features stope working
by Edgeblackstar on 2019/05/22 02:26
It doesn’t save the progress you make on watching show. And auto subtitle doesn’t work. I have to look for the next episode after I get now Hulu and put back the time where I left off cause it always restart. I have to watch many more commercials getting back to my point of the episode.
Okay app, but buggy & flawed
by TCAllen07 on 2019/05/22 01:56
Overall functional & okay. But sometimes buttons just don’t work, or ads repeats, etc. Biggest pain: the SLIGHTEST touch downward closes what you’re watching. And it’s so sensitive that a calm breeze or maybe just THINKING it is enough to close your show. And what’s worse: you can’t turn it off / disable the gesture. Often the pause overlay (where screen dims and all the buttons are visible) just stays there permanently, until you touch the screen again, risking closing it like mentioned before. Sometimes the next-episode option at the end of a show doesn’t show up, and it’s always difficult to press, usually pausing the credits instead of playing the next episode. Also, if you miss something and rewind a few seconds, it’ll sometimes make you watch the same ads again that you just saw. Hulu assumes it’s your fault and makes you watch various commercial breaks to start at the point in the video you were just recently watching. Plus if there’s content near the end of an episode, it’ll assume you watched everything and make you watch commercials in order to fast-forward to that end-of-episode content.

This is the best app in the world
by Phlammons on 2019/05/22 01:26
I love this as much as I love Netflix. Maybe even more. With sooooooooooo many shows and movies to my liking. this is the best streaming service. The only complaint I have is that some shows like the simpsons should have early seasons.
Hulu admits “doesn’t work with iPad”

by Fjdffbttjfdjdjdsbefdhfhogufvc on 2019/05/21 23:37
A lot of times the videos don’t play, and it crashes after ads. It gets so annoying watching the ads over and over again.
TOO MANY ADS
by chappilinda51971 on 2019/05/21 23:34
I did the math. Legitimately more than 5 minutes of ads per episode. RIDICULOUS.

Not bad but not great
by Chasity L. Davis on 2019/05/21 23:00
It has an ok selection of movies but it doesn’t let you download any movies so, you can only use the app while online. I had some glitches here and there but what app doesn’t? I don’t like it anymore than Netflix. I would like to see newer movies on Hulu and I’d like to see a wider selection for younger viewers.
It’s a video app & the videos won’t play...
by KatieWG1009 on 2019/05/21 23:00
Updated the app and now videos won’t play. I’ve tried closing out the app and reopening it. I’ve tried turning off my iPad and restarting it. I’ve tried deleting the app and reinstalling it. I even tried getting help from their chat bot and was told, sorry we’re having trouble with the system. What good is a streaming app if it won’t actually stream videos?!

I only just started having this problem today, until this everything was perfect. Everything I click on is “Currently Unavailable” How, may I ask, can I use your app when nothing works? Fix this.
Useable
by Colton42000 on 2019/05/21 21:20
Honestly not mobile friendly, on any other platform id recommend hulu but it just does not seem compatible for a mobile device. Especially the website, its almost impossible to even get logged in while getting a recurring notification that to many people are logged in yet no one else has this account. So when i try and fix this I’m required to use their broken site. Point is it’s a solid way to watch anything you want until you run into a simple problem that apparently cannot be fixed.
Awful
by jurrasicquest on 2019/05/21 20:41
This app is inconsistent at best. The play back errors are constant. Fix your app Hulu.
bad
by onewhosighs on 2019/05/21 20:12
Downloaded and made an account today to watch something. Go to watch said something and it just shows the cover for that show. Won’t play the episode at all. Tried re installing and all that jazz. Turned on my wifi - and nothing. So.. sort of ridiculous how a company as big as hulu has this big of a flaw in their mobile app.
One huge error...
by Su11yK on 2019/05/21 20:12
Won’t play the videos. Blank black screen. All other apps / Netflix etc work fine on my device. I’ve even deleted the app and reinstalled. SO frustrating.
Worst streaming service ever
by screwhulu on 2019/05/21 19:56
I never write reviews, but I feel like I should since the developers over at Hulu are clearly not getting the message. This is hands down the worst streaming service I have ever used. I forgot that the reason I cancelled my subscription four years ago was that the quality was unwatchably bad: video takes forever to start playing, buffers repeatedly, and closes frequently with an error message. Not to mention that despite paying, you still have to watch a ton of ads (which is the only thing that seems to play smoothly). I see that nothing has changed in the time since I’ve been blissfully enjoying Prime, Netflix, and YouTube with none of these problems, so I will be cancelling once more. Bye, Hulu - put some time into your product and maybe I’ll come back. P.S. The app interface is clunky.
Please fix this
by upset and frastrated! on 2019/05/21 19:53
I get on Hulu to watch my shows but every time I wan to watch something it takes so long to load and I have to exit off Hulu like 4 times to get the show going It’s frustrating not been able to see my shows
Not very filtered
by hallenbeck12 on 2019/05/21 19:52
I made this review because When I want to watch something, half of the time the shows or movies are in Spanish. I live in America and speak English. I hope the channel filter gets improved.

Bluetooth headsets failure
by luciesquire on 2019/05/21 19:15
Since the latest update it no longer works with any Bluetooth speaker or headset I own. It literally will not load any show unless I turn it all off, reset my phone and reopen app. As someone who is nearly deaf, this makes this app about pointless now because the internal speaker system on the iPhone is complete crap with a volume that is flat out not loud enough.
Ugh
by Victoriaburr on 2019/05/21 19:15
This app is NOT good for binge steamers. It takes 30 mins to even get the next episode to play no matter where I am. I can be on home WiFi, work WiFi, cellular.. it doesn’t matter. And it’s clearly only problematic on iPhone because my husband standing right beside me was able to open and play immediately on his note 8. At this point I’m wishing my show was on Netflix.
Ugh
by angrylady1235 on 2019/05/21 18:58
I would really like this app as it has the best shows, but I can never even watch them because the app crashes every time. Or it just loads forever. So frustrating
Slow app bad auto play
by moogalo on 2019/05/21 18:54
I have been using my Hulu account a lot lately. I’ve finished my classes, so I’m catching up on my shows. I set up my phone to watch a show, I have auto play on, but when a show ends, I have issues getting the next episode to play. Let alone getting an episode to start. Considering cancelling my subscription. I pay $50 a month for Hulu with live tv and I am often forced to watch a different app like YouTube just because my shows won’t load. Garbage app.
Not impressed
by Redsoxj01 on 2019/05/21 18:54
I had only had the app for a day & so far I am not impressed. There is a good selection of shows, if you can get them to play. If I have to stop in the middle of an episode and I try to resume it later it will not play. Not expecting this with all the hype that Hulu has.
Horrible app
by Nkelly613 on 2019/05/21 18:46
Glitches and freezes constantly. Never plays two shows back to back with out closing the app sometimes I have to put it in airplane mode sometimes I have to restart my phone and still won’t play the next episode!!! This app is so irritating!
Annoying
by jordaneholl on 2019/05/21 18:40
I just got it and it was fine for a few days and now it won’t play anything but the ads and that’s not very useful.

by Zombie hitman on 2019/05/21 18:38

Don’t update!!!
by twilikatie on 2019/05/21 17:55
I use this app everyday while I’m working as I work very long shifts. Love the app and the service. But I updated the app today and now it won’t load any of my shows. When I do finally get something to play it crashes. It takes 5-10 minutes of playing around with the app, restarting my iPad (my signal strength is perfect as I’m on a big hill near cell towers) just to get one video to play only to have it crash and have to restart the process. Don’t allow it to update!!!

Loading Issues
by Techygal9 on 2019/05/21 17:33
When I open the Hulu app to watch Attack on Titan the show now never loads on my iPad Pro or my iPhone XS. But if I try to watch some show Hulu recommends I have no play back issues. For a while I thought it may be an internet issue but I have no issues on watching my programs through my Netflix account. I tried Hulu because of that Black Friday deal but I probably won’t keep the service because of these issues.
Constant Crashing
by Docket4 on 2019/05/21 17:33
This app should be good, but crashes constantly. It always happens when I’m watching live TV. I would say it’s not functional. It is also not the WiFi at my house, Hulu TV works great on my Chromebook and my Roku devices. I would actually recommend Hulu for live TV, just not if you frequently use Apple products.
No downloads or “skip intro”
by g.cor on 2019/05/21 17:24
I like how on Netflix you can download some movies/shows and there’s a skip intro button for when you’re binge watching and don’t want to keep playing the opening credits. Those are my biggest qualms with the Hulu app - not having something similar.
The commercials
by YungSkywalker551 on 2019/05/21 17:17
I feel like this app is great, it has nice amount of tv shows and movies to select from. The problem comes in when your so into the show that your watching and a minute long commercial come on that happens at least four times while watching a tv show. If you’ll be able to get rid of the commercials or at least make them appear less while watching this app would definitely be 5 stars.
Great app when it works
by khashayar61 on 2019/05/21 17:11

An Affront to the Art of User Interface Design
by Episkopos 304 on 2017/10/22 04:28
To describe Hulu’s new user interface as torturous barely scratches the surface. Touching the screen to access the player controls causes the entire image to be obscured. The controls remain on the screen for several seconds after playback resumes, leading the user to touch the screen in an attempt to make them go away (so the video can be viewed); this usually results in changing the position of the “playhead” or “timeline” control, skipping to some other random part of the program. There is simply no excuse for this poor of a design. But at least Library navigation is utterly bewildering, indicating the developers are fully committed to making the app unusable in any respect. Airplay support has also been removed, which is simply hateful.
Making me want to reconnect the cord...
by HawkSevenSix on 2019/05/19 17:10
App is constantly crashing my WiFi connection on my new iPad Pro after a few moments of viewing. Even on other WiFi networks. I can stream with anything else on the same device. Don’t give me the old “its your router/internet service” crap. Everything else in my house connected to that WiFi works just fine. And what’s worse, you won’t even let me stream from the internet on the iPad, or give me the option to view the full site. I got better reliability from a certain satellite provider that yes, cost more, but gave me much better customer service. Oh and the error messages are laughable. “Why don’t you try restarting your router or your device and see if that helps” to paraphrase. It didn’t. Tried reinstalling the app and even resetting the device to factory settings, including the routers. I pay for no commercials and still are FORCED to watch them for what seems to be about everything. What a joke. Get it together.
TERRIBLE
by secretMonopoly on 2019/04/29 22:15
This is terrible. They have way to many adds encouraging you to buy premium. I’m fine with adds I understand the need to make money through advertisement, although there are problems that if your WiFi cuts connection soon after an add you’ll have to re watch the add. This wouldn’t be that bad except the adds are 85-95 seconds each. During a 42 minute program you’ll experience 5, 80 second adds. Over the course of a season you’ll watch on average 6 hours of adds and over the duration of a series have fun wasting 20 hours of your life watching adds. This is if the WiFi connection doesn’t make you watch more time worth of adds. You do not only see more adds this decreases the speed in which you can watch shows, only wasting your time. I get adds, but know the definition of excessive and know where the line is of enjoyable content. I am still paying for subscription not paying to watch 15 hours of adds a series.
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
Please fix
by DerrellMNE7 on 2018/11/07 02:16
The app is good overall but there’s one really annoying bug, the rewind and fast forward features only work for going back 10 seconds or forward 30 seconds at a time. When I hold the buttons to try to move back/forward for any time longer than that the show will start to load and then jump back to the same spot I was trying to move from. This is extremely annoying when trying to watch recorded sports and trying to skip past the pregame shows which usually last 30 minutes or so. So you either watch the pregame show unnecessarily or you have to press the fast forward button 100 times to skip to the action. Please fix these problem
Love the App but ....
by Rachel and Micah's Mom on 2018/10/23 16:52
Love the app but hate that it has a habit of crashing. Also even when my internet connection is good the app has trouble connecting. Really enjoy taking my entertainment experience every where I go. ..... but dislike the fact that I have to connect to my home internet every month to prove that I still live where I say I do. This is a big problem for me because I am not home often, and if I forget to connect when I am home , then I cannot use the app again until I return to log on again on my home network. My address is the same. My billing address is the same. WHY O WHY must I prove that I haven’t moved to another location. And where is AMC, great entertainment there, please add it to the line up !!!
Please fix....
by Moni.Moore on 2018/09/01 01:06
I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo
by tilleyrs on 2017/10/14 06:16
I'm the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it's to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your "swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards" function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
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.
It ok, I think
by Mikasc on 2018/11/14 20:33
The app is amazing, I can watch all my favorite shows and movies. The only problem I have is that every time I try to watch anything, it says that there’s nothing to watch there. And I did watch like 5 seasons yet and it’s telling me that. Now here’s that thing about my issues, either it’s my mom and she’s blocking the app so it’s not Allowing me to watch it. But if that was the case, then I wouldn’t be able to get into the app at all. But once again I am not sure allowing me to watch it. But I am not sure, and if that is not the case, hey my mom and she’s block the app. Then I have no complaints, but if not that is my only complaint. In conclusion, without my problems. This app is overall a five-star.
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.
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?
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!!!😡
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!
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.
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.
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
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.
Shows watched
by Flyerthanfly1 on 2018/10/24 02:11
For some reason, several of my shows display episodes unwatched since the first season, first episode even if I’m all caught up. I’ve tried re-watching the last/most current episode of each show to change the status to “all caught up” and I’m still not getting that status. It would be helpful if I could check which episodes I’ve already seen or check that I’m all caught up so I don’t have to try and re-watch episodes and I can be notified of new episodes. It’s really annoying to have to re-watch episodes or even trying to fast forward through episodes, but having to watch commercials to fast forward. Please don’t make me re-watch all episodes from the series premiere just to show that I’m all caught up. Please fix.
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.
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?
chrome cast not working after update
by GO4MJ on 2018/05/25 04:00
loved the app. brag and told everyone about it and to subscribe. literally NO ISSUES and completely diff experience than any of these reviews. after recent update, can no longer use with my chrome cast and unfortunately i am a single and working mother and I can’t sit online to try and fix your app for you with customer service. the whole point in cutting off cable is to not deal with service issues and people and to spend more time doing things that matter. I will give it until my next billing cycle and cancel if it isn’t fixed. UPDATE: after writing this review, my issue has been fixed. and the updates are wonderful and friendly.
Playback problems
by SPOOK-e on 2018/04/27 16:41
I would often forward the video about hafway through an episode of a series by accident, and I would then have to go through 90 seconds of commercials to fix my mistake. Because this app allows you to forward/forward a video by tapping anywhere on screen, this makes it easier for me to repeat this mistake. I think if where was a different methods to move through videos would help, that I won’t mess up again and have to wait through so many ads all because I tried to clear a text and accidentally moved from the beginning of an episode to near the end. Besides this issue, this app works great for me and I haven’t encountered any other issues.
Good but has one problem
by Superheroes are awesome on 2019/03/31 03:35
This app is very good if you have a premium subscription which isn’t extremely expensive compared to other streaming services. The way they market this service is truthful. But I share a subscription with other people who watch different shows than me and whenever I load up the app it recommends me their intended recommendations. It’s similar to Netflix where you still have the separate name accounts but the only thing you have to yourself is the name and the shows and movies in “my stuff”. Also if someone watched the same show as me, while sharing a subscription, you’ll pick up where they left off. Make the accounts more privatized please.
JUST PATHETIC!!!
by SpartaMix on 2018/12/16 20:38
The app is ok but could certainly benefit from small quality of life improvements such as: adding a “WATCH FROM BEGINNING” BUTTON! Another thing I need to point out. I’m subscribed to sprint and therefore have the free version of the app. The issue here lies with the ad commercials and rewind/forward buttons: at random, during any episode, both buttons become disabled with a prompt showing “rewind/forward is not allowed during commercials” but I’m not in the middle of any commercials!!!!! I want to watch something from the beginning and I can’t because 1) there is no button with the option 2) the app is riddled with bugs and glitches! JUST RIDICULOUS!
Remove Picture in Picture
by KismetKat on 2017/09/17 14:18
How could they have removed the most useful feature? I can no longer multi-task while watching a program because they removed Picture in Picture support. And, if you accidentally touch the left side of the screen in certain spots, the video starts over again. When you try to recover and drag you finger along the time bar, the same picture shows in the background so you have no idea if you've gotten back the the same o,Ave you were before the video reset. Not sure why they don't check out the competition (Netflix) who does this very well. Oh, and when I upgraded to the new app I had to fill out all my interests again and it seems to have lost my viewing history. Terrible experience!!
Frustrating
by Pandoramom on 2017/12/26 21:17
Two main things that irk me about the newest version of the app... first, as I’ve read many people complain about, the fact that the bar across the bottom that shows the progress of the episode extends through the whole screen, so if you bump the screen or tap somewhere a little off, it advances or rewinds the show to a different place. So frustrating. Second issue, it used to be that you almost got “credit” for watching the commercials the first time, so if you rewinded, either on purpose or accidentally, it would skip the commercials you already watched the first time and just play. Now if you bump the screen and it rewinds, not only do you have to rewatch the commercials but it seems like they are longer! Both of these issues make watching on the app very frustrating and not enjoyable. It needs to be fixed!
Horrible Update.
by MiseruzP on 2018/01/17 18:29
I like the old version. This version has a horrible layout. The rewind and fast forward feature are horrible. When they first updated the app I was watching a show. I tapped the screen to pause it and it rewound. That’s frustrating. I sometimes have to rewind to see something and sometimes it’s right before a commercial break. As you know, you can’t rewind on a commercial break. When I do rewind it plays the part of the show I needed and goes to a commercial AGAIN!! It never used to replay the commercials!! I don’t know if it’s because of the “no commercial” version they have now. Maybe they have to make up not showing as many commercials in the “no commercials” version or what. But, Mama no likey. After my first encounter with the new app I stayed off for months! My shoes are piling up and I basically have to use this app. I just miss the old version.
Worst ux please go back to previous version
by Dmnyu on 2018/02/10 04:13
I can’t find the content I’m looking for! It might look nicer design wise. But the user experience is terrible. I touch the screen by mistake and the video jumps to a different time line. Then the commercials appear and I can’t go back to where I was until I finish watching some terrible commercials. It makes me angry to use this app it’s really buggy with zero thought about the user. And the sad part is that the old version (similar to the web version you have on your website) was great. I loved using it. It was easy to find content. Simple to navigate. Simple to rate. Simple to move to a different time in the video. Why did yo have to complicate it??? I don’t care about design and fancy fonts...I care about having a seamless user experience and watching my videos with zero frustration. Please go back to the older version!!
absolutely horrible
by skyeasher on 2018/06/22 15:36
i would rate this 0 stars if i could. the fast forward/rewind is extremely frustrating and makes this app almost IMPOSSIBLE to use. i really recommend you DONT get this app. the makers don’t listen to the suggestions the viewers have and i can guarantee they don’t read the reviews. the amount of ads on this app is almost overwhelming, and having to rewatch commercials is so annoying. every time i try to watch a show that’s 1 hour, it ends up taking 3 hours to finish because of watching and rewatching commercials, i can’t fast forward or rewind correctly, and frankly, the update didn’t help at all. the price is also very high compared to the quality of what you’re purchasing. all in all 0/10 app, would not recommend to anyone who actually has stuff to do and can’t spend 2 or more hours watching 1 episode at a time
I’m Not Happy At All
by Megan Mad on 2018/09/29 11:49
Currently I’m having the trouble with how the app won’t load ANYTHING. What’s the point of paying for a service to watch tv shows when the shows won’t load to be able to watch them? The commercials are VERY repetitive, and don’t even get me started on how long they take to load, sometimes it takes just as long as it takes to load up the episodes. I was astonished when I learned there wasn’t a an option to pay to get rid of the commercials, because now I know that EVERYONE has to live through the pain that I have. I can not believe how terribly glitchy this app is, it’s practically unusable, and it makes the experience of watching my favorite shows completely unbearable. PLEASE fix this, we are paying to use this service and we deserve better.
Pretty annoyed about the latest update
by TychaBrahe on 2018/09/13 05:28
Running the app on iPhone. As of five hours ago it would go full screen when I rotated my phone and had portrait lock off. Now I have to press an icon on screen. Decreasing utility is NOT an enhancement. Because of this, the app will only go full screen with the volume buttons at the bottom. Thanks, but sometimes I put my phone down to the right of the outlet, and I don't want my charging cable wrapped around my phone. Also, with the volume buttons on the bottom I can no longer adjust the sound without picking up my phone. Again, decreasing utility is NOT an enhancement.
Over commercialization successful.

I’m a capitalist I get trying to squeeze a little more profit out of your service, but this is taking it too far. Then you make it worse by making FF or RR anywhere near the commercials an invitation to watch the whole set of commercials, 200+ seconds of commercials to be exact, again! Oh and you manage to get through the commercials to start watching your show and the app locks up. You have to restart the app. Then you restart your show. Remember those commercials you watched right before the app locked up? Yep. Better get ready to sit through those same commercials again. Mind you all this is on the less commercials plan that costs extra. I was really happy with the live TV plan until you went nuts with the commercials. I’m gonna try other services like PlayStation Vue or Sling.
Previous version was better

HATE how there is an Account tab but you cant do anything, all it says it to go to the site. What’s the point of it being there if you can’t do anything anyways? This should have been available a looonnggg time ago. Also, the new update made it worse, it was good before. To be brief, all the other reviewers list the same problems that I would. Also this has nothig to do with this update but it would be nice if you could make the next episode start automatically after the episode your watching ends instead of going through all the credits.
Best app I’ve seen
by TheTank421 on 2017/11/11 01:15
Everyone else complaining about commercials and missing content when rewinding or ff. There is an option to have no commercials but these poor scrubs are too cheap to pay the extra couple dollars. And they complain about problems that only exist because they create them from nothing. It’s a great app, and those who give it bad ratings, just know that they are those people that give EVERY app a bad rating because they aren’t tech savvy and are mad at the world. Nothing in this world is perfect and never will be, stop complaining about everything and give accurate responses, like me.
Not user friendly and buggy
by FatBoy1185 on 2017/10/26 22:11
It takes a while to get used to this app but it’s not intuitive at all. Like, trying to figure out how to see a specific episode, or even just trying to skip to the next episode. The other issue is that it keeps getting stuck in subtitles mode. It used to be that you’d have to turn them off every episode because they’d magically come on. Now they magically come on and you can’t turn them off. So you have to close the app after every episode and re open it again so the the subtitles go away. The other crappy thing is that if you pause the show and then touch anywhere on the screen the show jumps to a different spot on the timeline. You end up constantly changing where you’re at in the show or movie accidentally. Maybe it’s just me. Who knows. But this app needs work
Get ready to scroll
by demonduck77 on 2017/09/28 00:30
Great variety in programming, but the UI is ridiculous. You should not have to scroll through the same menu over and again. It is completely unacceptable to have to scroll through the same programs because your place is not held. Let's say you are scrolling through HBO movies and open a movie whose title starts with M. Add it to your watch list and back out to the previous menu, and it drops you all the way back at A. You are forced to scroll through all of the same programming again and again. This is with the latest update on the newest model iPad.
Counterintuitive Garbage
by ottonomy on 2018/04/27 19:58
Please go back to the old old app version from before you thought you could reinvent the wheel. It worked. Everyone liked it. No one was confused. No one was accidentally whisked to the wrong part of a show, and forced to watch the same commercials all over again. Yes, this latest update has made a marginal improvement over the last absolutely inexcusable embarrassment of an update. It’s merely somewhat horrible now. Here’s an idea: Just let me tap or drag on the transport bar like every other video player app in existence. It works. It takes no effort to learn. It never does anything unpredictable. And it doesn’t require starting a drag over more than once just to reach the desired portion of a show. Please please please go back to the old old version, and don’t try to fix this worthless piece of garbage.
Rewind/Fast forward
by sci-fi love on 2017/11/02 04:11
I hate that you can’t get a completely full screen, it drives me nuts, but the absolute worst thing that needs to be changed ASAP is the rewind fast forward thing. If you tape ANYWHERE or if there’s a fingerprint mark on your screens and you try to fix it, even if it’s paused it rewinds or fast forwards all the way to that point in the show and then you end up watching commercials again, which I’ve done countless times. Also, it even fast forwards to the next episode by accident which I’ve done several times. Then you have to go back to your last episode and find out where on earth you were. There should at least be an option to undo your rewind or fast forward if it does so so easily. Please change as soon as possible.
Love it!
by Nacho-Gamer on 2018/12/21 10:11
I’ve had issues in the past but it seems that they actually read the reviews and fix them. I had an issues where I would get logged out for NO reason. No longer an issue so thanks. I would love to see you guys add a download feature without charging us extra. You know you can watch videos offline. I would also love to see that we can make actual account changes. Some people have not have access to a computer to do account changes. You could make more money by allowing people to subscribe to channels and what not. Please consider these!
Trash app
by lolohaley on 2018/10/08 04:26
Your app is trash. It constantly has errors and outages, I pay for the service and still have streaming errors that have nothing to do with my internet service. I say once again, your app is trash. The content is poorly organized when it actually works, and new content is difficult to find which leads me to watching the same things. Needs improvement to content discovery, needs improvement to overall serviceability. Continued errors will lead to members searching elsewhere to find what they want to watch. Why would I continue to get in the app in hopes that it will work when I can use another service that never gives me problems and allows me better access to content that I might want to watch. Needs some real overhauling but thanks for the cheeky messages about updates
