I have been having this issue for about a year now. I pay for the premium subscription, everything is up to date, my login informations IS correct, and I STILL cannot log in through this app!!! It is very fustrating. Before you assume, yes, I can login EVERYWHERE ELSE. sick of it
Hulu review
by I hste this game on 2019/03/25 03:41
The tv shows are ok half of them I can’t even watch without paying extra. Also the amount of 5 minutes long commercials is ridiculous and makes me want to delete the app over and over again. I don’t recommend it at all unless u like tv shows that are more commercials than the show.
Confusing but overall good
by @giraffe on 2019/03/25 02:50
I find it very confusing how to go back in your show it is 10 seconds but to go forward it 30. Besides that it is pretty good.
More anime should be involved
by hulu is bad on 2019/03/25 02:17
I wish more anime would come out like dragon ball Z and not have to pay extra to watch dragon ball super

Hulu is freakishly amazing!
Used to be good
by rjcisown on 2019/03/25 01:44
You can’t even watch old seasons of major shows. Now instead Hulu is pushing new poor quality shows such as “Shrill” which is really just an attempt to further the leftist agenda.
"Streaming laws"
by justannoyed2 on 2019/03/25 01:31
I upgraded my plan so I could have no ads and because of "streaming laws" that were never disclosed to me when I upgraded, I still have ads on shows I watched. Disappointed. So thanks for that.
Baaad
by MarcoSteven on 2019/03/25 01:23
I’m paying for Hulu and I still having Ads before a movie starts, and the watermark in the bottom in every movie is to annoying!!!
Terrible iPad app
by Mr Scarface on 2019/03/25 01:02
Your iPad app is terrible. The recent update seems to have been made by someone who has never used a steaming app. Default viewing is in a tiny window and half the time when I press pause it hides the viewing window which keeps playing and returns me to the main browse window. WTH?? It’s like you don’t want anyone to use this app. You broke what didn’t mean to be fixed. Congrats
More ads than YouTube
by fgsgsgsghehe on 2019/03/25 00:53
It has more ads than YouTube which is free
Playback failure

Log in EVERY TIME
by Tired of logging in. on 2019/03/24 21:54
The latest update is forcing me to have to log in EVERY SINGLE TIME on my 4th gen Apple TV. Otherwise, a great service.
Decent app
by s3thbarquest on 2019/03/24 21:14
I like be that Hulu has all the classic tv shows and movies but if they would just combine the $11.99 option with the $35 option and just make it a flat $15 it would be a lot more worth the money because I pay $11.99 a month and I’m still extremely restricted to what I can watch. All the classic movies are locked but most the tv shows are unlocked.

I can’t mirror what’s on my iPhone using my HDMI to lightning adapter onto my television. I’ve tried using multiple hdmi cords and ports also I have used another adapter. Still no connection. I’ve contacted customer support and they said I need to wait for an update. I’m confused on what else I should do. Plz halp.

Great Service, Poor Playback on Mobile
by VanitasT10 on 2019/03/24 15:55
While I love Hulu as a service, I routinely encounter playback errors even when connected to a router not two feet away with an up/down higher than the base recommended.
Waste of Time!
by sealab4421 on 2019/03/24 15:46
I downloaded this app hoping to watch The Blacklist. After signing up I was instantly disappointed. The one show I wanted to watch was not included in the package I subscribed to. How is that even possible? I assumed if you get the highest one you would have access to everything they have to offer. That’s not the case. Anyways, I’ll just stick to Netflix. I also would like to point out that the rating is false. I want to give it 0 of 5 stars!
Make It So You Can Download

Missing some key features
by TV Guy 22 on 2019/03/24 14:56
The viewing experience is good. Great picture quality and experience. Missing some key capabilities to make it on par with other providers (e.g., Netflix). 1. Offline viewing. Not having the ability to download content to my iPad to view on flights is a huge miss. 2. 4K content. I know it won’t mean a lot on the iPad app, but on my Apple TV it is a must have to be competitive. 3. The live TV experience is not good. The search and ability to find programs in the future is nearly impossible. Again, you have a good start. Time to make this a leading app, versus a mid-tier solution.
Originals
by Pokemonchampion on 2019/03/24 14:54
Haven’t had a problem with the app so far. The Hulu originals are absolute garbage though.

by First the drom then ur mum on 2019/03/24 14:03
Can load the app up fine and look at the tv show/ movie information and add them to my list just fine but as soon as I tap play or watch trailer it immediately crashes. On iPhone 6 iOS 11.2

Mandatory Commercials
by pickyuser01 on 2019/03/24 11:44
The new “update” a long with a Price Increase brings back “Mandatory Commercials” in recordings. You can fast forward through Live TV, but NOT Commercials. That’s BACKWARDS.
Update. 😡😡😤😤

Why is it so complicated?
by cowtoe on 2019/03/24 06:31
I know what I want to watch I don’t need help deciding all I need is an easy to find categories button and when I’m playing a video the ability to push next. I know you have genres tab but the fact that is not easier to find is stupid not to not to mention when I’m watching a show and want to go to the next episode I don’t want to go back not if there is a listing tab right there. so why show me other stuff as opposed to what I’m currently watching. I mean I get it in small doses but your formatting is a little ridiculous.
Good Shows, Bad at continue watching
by Jorge Techie on 2019/03/24 05:27
Hulu originals have been very binge worthy for me (handmaid’s tale, the act, shrill). Good variety and great performances. Also a good line up of classic and new TV shows ( The good doctor, America’s got talent, Bob’s burger) Really enjoying the Selections available BUT my biggest issue is “continue watching” is hit or miss. Even when in the same device, it will skip an episode of a series im watching, or restart the episode, play the previous or next episode (there’s really no rhyme or reason). It’s the worst when i switch platforms, from phone to TV or Xbox. Also, if I’m watching a movie that haven’t finished, it wont appear on the initial continue watch screen, I have to go into the “see all history” section to find it and continue. I never appreciated how well Netflix “continue watch” is so seamless, until you compare how glitchy hulu’s is. Sometimes i’m watching and don’t realize that it glitched until im watching and don't know what’s going on or what happened in the story of a show (which really spoils a tv show surprise if there was one). I use hulu on iphone XS with the updated hulu, also use an apple tv, Xbox and ipad.
Can’t find a way to change my subscription to ad-free on my iPad
by Greg Austin TX on 2019/03/24 05:16
Can’t find a way to change my subscription to ad-free on my iPad. Hulu “help” is useless for this. I’m actually trying to give them more money!
Good but where are parental controls?
by elevy on 2019/03/24 04:51
Just signed up for Hulu TV with HBO. All works smoothly but how do I prevent my kids to watch GOT on HBO? I can't. It would be so simple for Hulu to add a password etc.... It's enough if a reason to switch to ATT Direct Tv streaming service which does have parental controls... Hulu get on this fast.
I love love love it
by Princess of the royal kingdom on 2019/03/24 03:20
I love this app so much. All of my favorite shows is on there I love it❤️
Coming up short
by vic come find me on 2019/03/24 02:33
Why drop a Hulu original with only 2 episodes? why decide on dropping them weekly? This is the reason why people like Netflix better. Makes me uninterested to continue watching the show the act.
Update is gabarge

Don’t waste your money!
by Ebsdebs on 2019/03/24 01:32
Hulu is great in a sense that it allows your on watch episodes of shows that have just come out. But the ads make it very frustrating!! They come on every 8 minutes or so and last up to 90 seconds!
30 second skip
by kenpower4556 on 2019/03/24 00:57
I dont like the 30 second skip change it back to 10 seconds

I am what you call a weebo and there are a lot of good anime’s on here (dudded I don’t like subbed) like food wars, attack on titan, my hero academia, and Tokyo ghoul over all 4 out of ten (would be 5 if one piece is dubbed)
It’s great but..

That’s all
Would be higher
by HULU person on 2019/03/23 21:28
I would love to give a 4 or 5 star review but they make you pay more for add free shows. Netflicks doesn’t charge extra. I feel that if I’m already paying for a service i shouldn’t have to pay more for add free viewing. Other than that HULU is great.
Closes when video is finished on ipp
by swithf on 2019/03/23 21:28
When a video finishes, the app doesn’t take me back to the main screen, it closes by itself or says can’t load title. Annoying
Not that good
by qlsjdudnx on 2019/03/23 20:15
There are a bunch of ads and they’re all super long and sometimes when I try to watch it the screen just goes black
Bug
by Gskgzkglglzysvkfx on 2019/03/23 19:58
I tried looking for where to report a bug and have researched the problem but nothing has worked. No episodes on any show are listed. It still remembers where I left off on a show and says new episodes are available but as soon as I click on the show it says no episodes are available. It's been like this for weeks and none of the updates have fixed it.
Awesome but not all anime
by Hyperduderocks12345 on 2019/03/23 19:01
I googled anime shows or movies to and I tried to type them on Hulu but some won’t show up. Maybe if you can find all anime shows and put them on Hulu, I will appreciate it. And keep up the good work! 👍🏻
Subscription user experience is horrible
by c-nmne on 2019/03/23 18:55
I was unable to use the free trial of my subscription without paying up front. It’s not free if must I pay first...
Home account?
by mer2312 on 2019/03/23 18:20
Hulu’s great and all. But I pay $45 a month for commercials and live tv and I can’t even watch it at my boyfriends house? This “home account” thing is crap, I pay for my service it shouldn’t matter where I want to watch tv. I’ll be cancelling my account.
APP NOT WORKING
by Katybby<3 on 2019/03/23 17:58
The app has been down for days. I click watch & it’s just a black screen & nothing ever happens. Idk if they’re fixing it but all of my streaming apps are down !!!! Netflix, Hulu, and amazon prime aren’t working either I literally can’t watch anything it’s so frustrating
Love Hulu but price is to high now
by Awesome plus on 2019/03/23 17:22
I have had Hulu since it’s begins I have Hulu live with unlimited screens and as much as I love Hulu it’s getting too expensive if I bundle my cable and internet I will be paying less so I maybe saying goodbye to Hulu

The ads are so annoying!!!
by #1 fan of Hamilton on 2019/03/23 16:18
I like that there is a big selection of tv shows on Hulu, but there are so many fricking ads! There are five in each show. My shows are roughly 20 minutes so that is a ad every 4 minutes! After a while I paid for the thing that removes ads and it only removed ads on some shows. Hulu definitely needs to use less ads.

by Brunos Unos on 2019/03/23 14:50
It needs help with the UI it's really confusing with trying to navigate around. Next thing is, I'm really hating the recommendation page that is the very first thing you see when you open Hulu. It's annoying and recommends shows that I don't want to see. The first thing should be the continue to watch page.
UI & Downloads
by fotocopy on 2019/03/23 13:27
I would probably overlook the awful UI if I could download shows. Additionally, the live TV is sketchy while watching March Madness. There is a lot of buffering on iOS and Roku.

Audio sooo frustrating and recorded sports a joke.
by Only1skinner on 2019/03/23 03:43
Hi, I like Hulu in general but am very close to leaving and trying YouTube tv instead. So many times the audio does not match the video, and leaves the viewer either frustrated or not able to watch the show. Basketball recordings are a joke, it cuts off the last couple mins too often and I have no option to add time to the recordings.
Broken app
by this is dumb 13 on 2019/03/23 03:35
The app does not let me play any episodes even with a current subscription and good internet connection. All shows say “unavailable at the moment” when you try to watch any episode of any show. Ridiculous that I pay this much money for an unusable service.
Hulu Live... Ehh
by AdamS414141 on 2019/03/23 03:20
Decent. Have it on every TV and mobile device. Pretty annoying when 1/4(?) times I use it on iPhone/ iPad / Apple TV it randomly switches channels. Needing to manually go back to what I was watching is annoying.

by boogybare2019 on 2019/03/22 18:52
Longtime Netflix customer which is probably why I am more than a lil frustrated with Hulu’s complicated content options such as prompts indicating I have to upgrade my services in order to watch popular content on paid cable subscriber services
Totally awesome
by JeffreyCA on 2019/03/22 16:52
Love everything in one place. Have Hulu + Live TV. Showtime, STARZ and Cinemax add on all for more than half what cable was!! And the Hulu originals are icing on the cake. Have no complaints as of yet.
People are giving it a bad reputation
by Babyface1026 on 2018/04/11 12:29
Pretty good app but you need the premium subscription to enjoy it if you don’t want the rewind/fastforward function to not cause to watch commercials. People are saying it’s not user friendly but I don’t see that at all. I’ve never had a problem with crashing, the app not opening, or the app not loading properly. Whenever I’m in a location with poor service, the app still loads all the show selections and I can still watch it without constant buffering like the Netflix app. It also looks sleek and not so plain like Netflix. I honestly loved the new overhaul update and when it first came the rwd/ffd would go whenever you touched the screen but now you have to tap the screen to do that function. So, in my mind the problem was fixed. I love the app, people just need to cool it.
Just get Netflix
by Over HULU on 2018/10/09 01:01
Why is it that your app is the ONLY app I have issues with streaming on my iPhone?? I had to delete the app and now that i have re-uploaded the app when I go to login to my profile it states that my internet connection is the problem but I can literally log into Netflix and stream immediately after getting that response from your app!!?? So, if you can manage to take my $7.99 a month without any problems then I should be able to use your service just the same. But that ain’t the case and I would like a resolution immediately or a reimbursement for services not rendered. This problem has been going on for the past few weeks for other customers as well - isn’t there a team of IT staff that should be addressing these issues??!!??
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.
More dubs
by L3roy jnkns on 2019/02/16 21:54
This is the best streaming app I ever had I can watch so many things like my favorite anime that I can’t watch on other apps plus there are more seasons to shows like naruto than there are on Netflix I just wish there were more dubbed anime’s. I have had to rewatch shows a million times because the last season isn’t in English. Don’t get me wrong I’m okay with subs but I think it is easier to do English or whatever language you speak because you don’t have to focus on subtitles during the best scene in the show. if they could just fix this it will be even better. I know over time it will probably be fixed but I am not going to wait a year just to watch the 3 season of a couple shows (overlord and my hero acadamia)
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
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 Moni.Moore on 2018/09/01 01:06
I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo
by tilleyrs on 2017/10/14 06:16
I'm the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it's to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your "swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards" function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
Bugs
by AllieH1008 on 2017/09/15 02:07
Every time I try to open the app on my phone, it says "something is wrong: try again." Extremely frustrating. I've tried reinstalling and updating it, and it's the same problem. It won't work. Update: the previous problem has gone away, but with the new update, I accidentally fast forward my show probably about ten times in each sitting somehow. Its extremely easy to do. I end up watching extra commercials because of this, and then when I try to find my spot again, I have to sit through a second set of commercials if I click multiple times looking for the right scene. It adds a LOT of commercials to my viewing time. I also have similar concerns to others reviews, as it used to be easy to find my shows and find new things I'd be interested in, but now it's not as intuitive, and it's more difficult to quickly find things.
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.
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
Inconsistency
by Leek in boat on 2018/10/18 22:12
There is this odd occurrence whenever I use this app and I usually run into a few problems: 1) Sometimes the next episode doesn’t play. It fails to load even if I am connected to the internet, am the only one watching, and have it all paid for. 2) Sometimes, even with good connection, the app doesn’t load up anything. It’ll open but every single tab says there is nothing to see here. 3) In the same vein as failure to load following episodes, there are times where I can’t even watch a completely different show. I could let the inconsistency of following episodes in a series fail to load slide, only a small bit though, but, when I can’t watch anything else for some reason? All of a sudden nothing is watchable? In closing, either shows don’t load or the entire app doesn’t work properly. Inconsistency, sometimes it works really well and then the other half of the time it doesn’t work at all. I have deleted and reinstalled, I have turned off and restarted my phone, I have closed and restarted the app but it still has the same problem. I just end up not watching anything for a bit and do something else; which is great, although, if getting me to do something else was the goal, why pay for an inconsistent service at all?
Disorganized
by Rebel Ghost on 2018/10/24 21:23
The constant changes to the layout just screams lack of confidence in the product and makes it very difficult to navigate. Please do something about the subpar subtitles do you actually watch and listen to the stories or are you just writing what you want. Fast forwarding and rewinding needs to be adjusted there’s nothing more frustrating then that suspenseful reveal that rolls right into commercial and you try to roll back a few seconds but have to watch another set of commercials. Very frustrating when you have to stop your device mid show only to come back to your place not saved and your going back and forth in the time line to find your spot only to have to watch two to three sets of commercials (I get that this service includes commercials but it’s the navigation that’s frustrating). Don’t be racist the stereotyping and picking what commercials you think I should watch is insulting.
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.
Good! But, a few issues
by Anon.2018 on 2018/10/31 13:30
I do not like the user interface set up all that much. For example, let’s say I just watched a series. I close app then re-open it at a later time. I expect to have that series somewhere on my dashboard but it’s not. In fact I typically have to retype it in the search box just to find it again. Second, I’m watching a show and I click to go to new episode; however, the GUI is gone! No play, backwards, forward, pause, scroll bar...nothing but an “X.” I contacted IT support and they didn’t know anything. So, it’s typical that I’ll have to refresh the page or log out and log in five to fifteen times over a few hours. But, in the end for the price and volume of shows it’s worth putting up with the glitches.
Can’t play in background
by Dragon vale man on 2017/11/21 05:01
I’m not going to say the new update is terrible because I honestly don’t think it is. I however have been annoyed at the fact that the tv shows can not be played in the background on the device. Normally people will listen to music as they use their device. However, for me that is tv shows. Because I have watched this particular show so much I don’t need to physically see it anymore, I have it playing in the background. Like another reviewer said, no one should be expected to stay glued to a show for an extended amount of time. That user wanted PIP and his PIP was revived. Last night even I was able to play in the background starting Saturday the 18th and ending the 19th. Please bring this back or install it if what I was experiencing was a bug. Thank you for you time.
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!
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.
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
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.
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?
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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 !!!
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.
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.
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.
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!
Terrible user experience
by krisco924 on 2018/05/02 16:24
Difficult to get to new episodes of shows I watch. Not recommending new episodes of shows I watch to me because there is some forced auto play of shows I’ve never heard of after I finish a new episode of a show I like, which then clog up my keep watching list. I preferred the version where it kept all the shows I watch together, showed how many new episodes were up to watch with a small number in the corner and it was very easy to remove shows from that list never to randomly return. Why is there such a narrow list of shows under each category? The app also crashes regularly and I have to force close and restart on my Apple TV. Shouldn’t have changed the Netflix style design. Nothing new created here but further complication unnecessarily. I’m annoyed with this app everyday.
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.
Tried to make it fancy but it's just difficult
by kmeansbusiness on 2017/09/20 22:33
The new update adds pretty colors and makes the overall app look better but ultimately extremely difficult to use. Instead of having your shows that you watch being front and center, they are now on their own tab with hulu's shows they are pushing being in your face as the first thing you see when you open the app. When you scroll through the shows they take over the entire screen, making it difficult to see all of your watchlist and pick a show. Also Having both the current episode you are on and latest right next to each other is super confusing and unnecessary. The old version was much more user friendly and I can see why many people, myself included, are having issues with the new update.
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
Nice but could be better
by Nelco_ut on 2019/01/24 12:02
This is nice because it has most of the movies and tv shows BUT, it needs to be more like netflix in that you can tap the screen to pause and resume instead of just the pause button. 2nd, it needs to hav better marked buttons and some added to the main screen like to be able to go back an episode when u walk away or fall asleep. As is u hav to get out of everything and try and find the way to get into the show with out making it automatically start playing. You should be able to click play or the parts around the play button to go into the program.

Hulu review
by I hste this game on 2019/03/25 03:41
The tv shows are ok half of them I can’t even watch without paying extra. Also the amount of 5 minutes long commercials is ridiculous and makes me want to delete the app over and over again. I don’t recommend it at all unless u like tv shows that are more commercials than the show.
Confusing but overall good
by @giraffe on 2019/03/25 02:50
I find it very confusing how to go back in your show it is 10 seconds but to go forward it 30. Besides that it is pretty good.
More anime should be involved
by hulu is bad on 2019/03/25 02:17

Used to be good
by rjcisown on 2019/03/25 01:44
You can’t even watch old seasons of major shows. Now instead Hulu is pushing new poor quality shows such as “Shrill” which is really just an attempt to further the leftist agenda.
"Streaming laws"
by justannoyed2 on 2019/03/25 01:31
I upgraded my plan so I could have no ads and because of "streaming laws" that were never disclosed to me when I upgraded, I still have ads on shows I watched. Disappointed. So thanks for that.

Terrible iPad app
by Mr Scarface on 2019/03/25 01:02
Your iPad app is terrible. The recent update seems to have been made by someone who has never used a steaming app. Default viewing is in a tiny window and half the time when I press pause it hides the viewing window which keeps playing and returns me to the main browse window. WTH?? It’s like you don’t want anyone to use this app. You broke what didn’t mean to be fixed. Congrats

Decent app
by s3thbarquest on 2019/03/24 21:14
I like be that Hulu has all the classic tv shows and movies but if they would just combine the $11.99 option with the $35 option and just make it a flat $15 it would be a lot more worth the money because I pay $11.99 a month and I’m still extremely restricted to what I can watch. All the classic movies are locked but most the tv shows are unlocked.

Great Service, Poor Playback on Mobile

Waste of Time!
by sealab4421 on 2019/03/24 15:46
I downloaded this app hoping to watch The Blacklist. After signing up I was instantly disappointed. The one show I wanted to watch was not included in the package I subscribed to. How is that even possible? I assumed if you get the highest one you would have access to everything they have to offer. That’s not the case. Anyways, I’ll just stick to Netflix. I also would like to point out that the rating is false. I want to give it 0 of 5 stars!

Missing some key features
by TV Guy 22 on 2019/03/24 14:56
The viewing experience is good. Great picture quality and experience. Missing some key capabilities to make it on par with other providers (e.g., Netflix). 1. Offline viewing. Not having the ability to download content to my iPad to view on flights is a huge miss. 2. 4K content. I know it won’t mean a lot on the iPad app, but on my Apple TV it is a must have to be competitive. 3. The live TV experience is not good. The search and ability to find programs in the future is nearly impossible. Again, you have a good start. Time to make this a leading app, versus a mid-tier solution.
Originals

Mandatory Commercials
by pickyuser01 on 2019/03/24 11:44
The new “update” a long with a Price Increase brings back “Mandatory Commercials” in recordings. You can fast forward through Live TV, but NOT Commercials. That’s BACKWARDS.

Why is it so complicated?
by cowtoe on 2019/03/24 06:31
I know what I want to watch I don’t need help deciding all I need is an easy to find categories button and when I’m playing a video the ability to push next. I know you have genres tab but the fact that is not easier to find is stupid not to not to mention when I’m watching a show and want to go to the next episode I don’t want to go back not if there is a listing tab right there. so why show me other stuff as opposed to what I’m currently watching. I mean I get it in small doses but your formatting is a little ridiculous.
Good Shows, Bad at continue watching
by Jorge Techie on 2019/03/24 05:27
Hulu originals have been very binge worthy for me (handmaid’s tale, the act, shrill). Good variety and great performances. Also a good line up of classic and new TV shows ( The good doctor, America’s got talent, Bob’s burger) Really enjoying the Selections available BUT my biggest issue is “continue watching” is hit or miss. Even when in the same device, it will skip an episode of a series im watching, or restart the episode, play the previous or next episode (there’s really no rhyme or reason). It’s the worst when i switch platforms, from phone to TV or Xbox. Also, if I’m watching a movie that haven’t finished, it wont appear on the initial continue watch screen, I have to go into the “see all history” section to find it and continue. I never appreciated how well Netflix “continue watch” is so seamless, until you compare how glitchy hulu’s is. Sometimes i’m watching and don’t realize that it glitched until im watching and don't know what’s going on or what happened in the story of a show (which really spoils a tv show surprise if there was one). I use hulu on iphone XS with the updated hulu, also use an apple tv, Xbox and ipad.

Good but where are parental controls?
by elevy on 2019/03/24 04:51
Just signed up for Hulu TV with HBO. All works smoothly but how do I prevent my kids to watch GOT on HBO? I can't. It would be so simple for Hulu to add a password etc.... It's enough if a reason to switch to ATT Direct Tv streaming service which does have parental controls... Hulu get on this fast.

Coming up short
by vic come find me on 2019/03/24 02:33
Why drop a Hulu original with only 2 episodes? why decide on dropping them weekly? This is the reason why people like Netflix better. Makes me uninterested to continue watching the show the act.

Don’t waste your money!
by Ebsdebs on 2019/03/24 01:32
Hulu is great in a sense that it allows your on watch episodes of shows that have just come out. But the ads make it very frustrating!! They come on every 8 minutes or so and last up to 90 seconds!
30 second skip

Would be higher
by HULU person on 2019/03/23 21:28
I would love to give a 4 or 5 star review but they make you pay more for add free shows. Netflicks doesn’t charge extra. I feel that if I’m already paying for a service i shouldn’t have to pay more for add free viewing. Other than that HULU is great.
Closes when video is finished on ipp
by swithf on 2019/03/23 21:28
When a video finishes, the app doesn’t take me back to the main screen, it closes by itself or says can’t load title. Annoying
Not that good
by qlsjdudnx on 2019/03/23 20:15
There are a bunch of ads and they’re all super long and sometimes when I try to watch it the screen just goes black
Bug
by Gskgzkglglzysvkfx on 2019/03/23 19:58
I tried looking for where to report a bug and have researched the problem but nothing has worked. No episodes on any show are listed. It still remembers where I left off on a show and says new episodes are available but as soon as I click on the show it says no episodes are available. It's been like this for weeks and none of the updates have fixed it.
Awesome but not all anime
by Hyperduderocks12345 on 2019/03/23 19:01
I googled anime shows or movies to and I tried to type them on Hulu but some won’t show up. Maybe if you can find all anime shows and put them on Hulu, I will appreciate it. And keep up the good work! 👍🏻
Subscription user experience is horrible

Home account?
by mer2312 on 2019/03/23 18:20
Hulu’s great and all. But I pay $45 a month for commercials and live tv and I can’t even watch it at my boyfriends house? This “home account” thing is crap, I pay for my service it shouldn’t matter where I want to watch tv. I’ll be cancelling my account.

The app has been down for days. I click watch & it’s just a black screen & nothing ever happens. Idk if they’re fixing it but all of my streaming apps are down !!!! Netflix, Hulu, and amazon prime aren’t working either I literally can’t watch anything it’s so frustrating
Love Hulu but price is to high now
by Awesome plus on 2019/03/23 17:22
I have had Hulu since it’s begins I have Hulu live with unlimited screens and as much as I love Hulu it’s getting too expensive if I bundle my cable and internet I will be paying less so I maybe saying goodbye to Hulu

Hate this app! Nothing plays.
The ads are so annoying!!!
by #1 fan of Hamilton on 2019/03/23 16:18
I like that there is a big selection of tv shows on Hulu, but there are so many fricking ads! There are five in each show. My shows are roughly 20 minutes so that is a ad every 4 minutes! After a while I paid for the thing that removes ads and it only removed ads on some shows. Hulu definitely needs to use less ads.

Hulu is great bu you should more movies and tv-shows in Spanish
It's ok but....
by Brunos Unos on 2019/03/23 14:50
It needs help with the UI it's really confusing with trying to navigate around. Next thing is, I'm really hating the recommendation page that is the very first thing you see when you open Hulu. It's annoying and recommends shows that I don't want to see. The first thing should be the continue to watch page.
UI & Downloads
by fotocopy on 2019/03/23 13:27
I would probably overlook the awful UI if I could download shows. Additionally, the live TV is sketchy while watching March Madness. There is a lot of buffering on iOS and Roku.
I love it

This story of real life situations with great acting was a nice change. Not just Dr’s, not just detectives, etc. Characters of all walks of life. I like it and look forward to more episodes.

Audio sooo frustrating and recorded sports a joke.
by Only1skinner on 2019/03/23 03:43
Hi, I like Hulu in general but am very close to leaving and trying YouTube tv instead. So many times the audio does not match the video, and leaves the viewer either frustrated or not able to watch the show. Basketball recordings are a joke, it cuts off the last couple mins too often and I have no option to add time to the recordings.
Broken app
by this is dumb 13 on 2019/03/23 03:35
The app does not let me play any episodes even with a current subscription and good internet connection. All shows say “unavailable at the moment” when you try to watch any episode of any show. Ridiculous that I pay this much money for an unusable service.
Hulu Live... Ehh
by AdamS414141 on 2019/03/23 03:20
Decent. Have it on every TV and mobile device. Pretty annoying when 1/4(?) times I use it on iPhone/ iPad / Apple TV it randomly switches channels. Needing to manually go back to what I was watching is annoying.

Longtime Netflix customer which is probably why I am more than a lil frustrated with Hulu’s complicated content options such as prompts indicating I have to upgrade my services in order to watch popular content on paid cable subscriber services
Totally awesome
by JeffreyCA on 2019/03/22 16:52
Love everything in one place. Have Hulu + Live TV. Showtime, STARZ and Cinemax add on all for more than half what cable was!! And the Hulu originals are icing on the cake. Have no complaints as of yet.
People are giving it a bad reputation
by Babyface1026 on 2018/04/11 12:29
Pretty good app but you need the premium subscription to enjoy it if you don’t want the rewind/fastforward function to not cause to watch commercials. People are saying it’s not user friendly but I don’t see that at all. I’ve never had a problem with crashing, the app not opening, or the app not loading properly. Whenever I’m in a location with poor service, the app still loads all the show selections and I can still watch it without constant buffering like the Netflix app. It also looks sleek and not so plain like Netflix. I honestly loved the new overhaul update and when it first came the rwd/ffd would go whenever you touched the screen but now you have to tap the screen to do that function. So, in my mind the problem was fixed. I love the app, people just need to cool it.
Just get Netflix
by Over HULU on 2018/10/09 01:01
Why is it that your app is the ONLY app I have issues with streaming on my iPhone?? I had to delete the app and now that i have re-uploaded the app when I go to login to my profile it states that my internet connection is the problem but I can literally log into Netflix and stream immediately after getting that response from your app!!?? So, if you can manage to take my $7.99 a month without any problems then I should be able to use your service just the same. But that ain’t the case and I would like a resolution immediately or a reimbursement for services not rendered. This problem has been going on for the past few weeks for other customers as well - isn’t there a team of IT staff that should be addressing these issues??!!??
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.
More dubs
by L3roy jnkns on 2019/02/16 21:54
This is the best streaming app I ever had I can watch so many things like my favorite anime that I can’t watch on other apps plus there are more seasons to shows like naruto than there are on Netflix I just wish there were more dubbed anime’s. I have had to rewatch shows a million times because the last season isn’t in English. Don’t get me wrong I’m okay with subs but I think it is easier to do English or whatever language you speak because you don’t have to focus on subtitles during the best scene in the show. if they could just fix this it will be even better. I know over time it will probably be fixed but I am not going to wait a year just to watch the 3 season of a couple shows (overlord and my hero acadamia)
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
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 Moni.Moore on 2018/09/01 01:06
I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo
by tilleyrs on 2017/10/14 06:16
I'm the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it's to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your "swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards" function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
Bugs
by AllieH1008 on 2017/09/15 02:07
Every time I try to open the app on my phone, it says "something is wrong: try again." Extremely frustrating. I've tried reinstalling and updating it, and it's the same problem. It won't work. Update: the previous problem has gone away, but with the new update, I accidentally fast forward my show probably about ten times in each sitting somehow. Its extremely easy to do. I end up watching extra commercials because of this, and then when I try to find my spot again, I have to sit through a second set of commercials if I click multiple times looking for the right scene. It adds a LOT of commercials to my viewing time. I also have similar concerns to others reviews, as it used to be easy to find my shows and find new things I'd be interested in, but now it's not as intuitive, and it's more difficult to quickly find things.
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.
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
Inconsistency
by Leek in boat on 2018/10/18 22:12
There is this odd occurrence whenever I use this app and I usually run into a few problems: 1) Sometimes the next episode doesn’t play. It fails to load even if I am connected to the internet, am the only one watching, and have it all paid for. 2) Sometimes, even with good connection, the app doesn’t load up anything. It’ll open but every single tab says there is nothing to see here. 3) In the same vein as failure to load following episodes, there are times where I can’t even watch a completely different show. I could let the inconsistency of following episodes in a series fail to load slide, only a small bit though, but, when I can’t watch anything else for some reason? All of a sudden nothing is watchable? In closing, either shows don’t load or the entire app doesn’t work properly. Inconsistency, sometimes it works really well and then the other half of the time it doesn’t work at all. I have deleted and reinstalled, I have turned off and restarted my phone, I have closed and restarted the app but it still has the same problem. I just end up not watching anything for a bit and do something else; which is great, although, if getting me to do something else was the goal, why pay for an inconsistent service at all?
Disorganized
by Rebel Ghost on 2018/10/24 21:23
The constant changes to the layout just screams lack of confidence in the product and makes it very difficult to navigate. Please do something about the subpar subtitles do you actually watch and listen to the stories or are you just writing what you want. Fast forwarding and rewinding needs to be adjusted there’s nothing more frustrating then that suspenseful reveal that rolls right into commercial and you try to roll back a few seconds but have to watch another set of commercials. Very frustrating when you have to stop your device mid show only to come back to your place not saved and your going back and forth in the time line to find your spot only to have to watch two to three sets of commercials (I get that this service includes commercials but it’s the navigation that’s frustrating). Don’t be racist the stereotyping and picking what commercials you think I should watch is insulting.
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.
Good! But, a few issues
by Anon.2018 on 2018/10/31 13:30
I do not like the user interface set up all that much. For example, let’s say I just watched a series. I close app then re-open it at a later time. I expect to have that series somewhere on my dashboard but it’s not. In fact I typically have to retype it in the search box just to find it again. Second, I’m watching a show and I click to go to new episode; however, the GUI is gone! No play, backwards, forward, pause, scroll bar...nothing but an “X.” I contacted IT support and they didn’t know anything. So, it’s typical that I’ll have to refresh the page or log out and log in five to fifteen times over a few hours. But, in the end for the price and volume of shows it’s worth putting up with the glitches.
Can’t play in background
by Dragon vale man on 2017/11/21 05:01
I’m not going to say the new update is terrible because I honestly don’t think it is. I however have been annoyed at the fact that the tv shows can not be played in the background on the device. Normally people will listen to music as they use their device. However, for me that is tv shows. Because I have watched this particular show so much I don’t need to physically see it anymore, I have it playing in the background. Like another reviewer said, no one should be expected to stay glued to a show for an extended amount of time. That user wanted PIP and his PIP was revived. Last night even I was able to play in the background starting Saturday the 18th and ending the 19th. Please bring this back or install it if what I was experiencing was a bug. Thank you for you time.
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!
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.
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
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.
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?
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.
chrome cast not working after update

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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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 !!!
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.
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.
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.
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!
Terrible user experience
by krisco924 on 2018/05/02 16:24
Difficult to get to new episodes of shows I watch. Not recommending new episodes of shows I watch to me because there is some forced auto play of shows I’ve never heard of after I finish a new episode of a show I like, which then clog up my keep watching list. I preferred the version where it kept all the shows I watch together, showed how many new episodes were up to watch with a small number in the corner and it was very easy to remove shows from that list never to randomly return. Why is there such a narrow list of shows under each category? The app also crashes regularly and I have to force close and restart on my Apple TV. Shouldn’t have changed the Netflix style design. Nothing new created here but further complication unnecessarily. I’m annoyed with this app everyday.
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.
Tried to make it fancy but it's just difficult
by kmeansbusiness on 2017/09/20 22:33
The new update adds pretty colors and makes the overall app look better but ultimately extremely difficult to use. Instead of having your shows that you watch being front and center, they are now on their own tab with hulu's shows they are pushing being in your face as the first thing you see when you open the app. When you scroll through the shows they take over the entire screen, making it difficult to see all of your watchlist and pick a show. Also Having both the current episode you are on and latest right next to each other is super confusing and unnecessary. The old version was much more user friendly and I can see why many people, myself included, are having issues with the new update.
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
Nice but could be better
by Nelco_ut on 2019/01/24 12:02
This is nice because it has most of the movies and tv shows BUT, it needs to be more like netflix in that you can tap the screen to pause and resume instead of just the pause button. 2nd, it needs to hav better marked buttons and some added to the main screen like to be able to go back an episode when u walk away or fall asleep. As is u hav to get out of everything and try and find the way to get into the show with out making it automatically start playing. You should be able to click play or the parts around the play button to go into the program.
