App refuses to work
by dutnjjgffmkkkkhfds on 2019/04/20 07:04
Won’t work on my phone.
Love Hulu
by SuperSocialWorker on 2019/04/20 03:59
I never have problems with Hulu. I love the options available. I sometimes get stuck on what to watch next, but all things considered...I give it 5 stars!
Honeymoon period over
by HerbS2urnerves on 2019/04/20 03:47
Its too complicated to get to live tv, to get to show information, and to get to “all channels” because for some reason it defaults to “recent channels” everytime you start the app. Reason for 1 star is the channels stopping to buffer like 50 times in a single 30 min episode. Otherwise its good that you can choose the streaming quality high, med, low.
Too mANy COmeRsiALs
by comersial on 2019/04/20 03:25
There are wayyy to many comertials it is so annoying
Doesn’t work
by dhcurjdn on 2019/04/20 02:16
Doesn’t let me put my email or password I’ve put everything right but it’s just no working
Bad update
by ScottRydr on 2019/04/20 01:35
New update forces you to watch a 3.5min commercial before you can rewind your DVR back to the beginning of an episode of recorded television. Never had this problem before. A bit ridiculous when you consider paying full price for for Hulu+
Ads
by Purplepumagaming on 2019/04/20 01:19
Why are there ads?? I pay for this I don’t want ads!
Big problem
by Music deficiancy on 2019/04/20 00:15
Whenever I click on shows now it keeps showing ‘currently unavailable’ I would love to be able to watch a certain show right now. But no it HAS to be currently unavailable

I love Hulu
by lak rainbow on 2019/04/19 23:05
I love Hulu because I can watch a lot of fun shows and movies
Horrible, waste of money
by jack2652 on 2019/04/19 22:58
Will not load video and keeps logging me out. Not worth the money, hardly ever use, and the one time I want to watch something, it doesn’t work. Beyond frustrated.
Fine beyond needed ad tweaks
by phone man 999 ,':} on 2019/04/19 22:37
I can completely understand needing extra funding, and 30-60 second ad breaks are actually nice for moving away to do something else. 90 second ad breaks are definitely overkill, though, spacing can be a little tight, and the variety/catering of ads could be slightly varied. Beyond that, video quality’s fine, show and movie variety is good, and UI’s good to manage. It came with Spotify for free, so no huge complaints beyond maybe shorter/less often ads.
Chromecasting Hulu causes glitches on FB
by ddsparkss on 2019/04/19 21:28
Every time I’m casting Hulu (via chrome cast) Facebook will not play videos. Not a buffer issue. Not sure if it’s a FB or Hulu problem, but it started after a recent update. Please fix in next update if it’s on Hulu’s end. Cross posted! Thanks
Omg. The worst movies ever
by Traumarn1971 on 2019/04/19 21:06
I’ve never seen so many poorly acted, poorly directed, cheaply made movies in my whole life. What on earth......
Bad connection
by svcoop32 on 2019/04/19 20:40
To many error messages
Bad App
by Waaaaaaaariors on 2019/04/19 20:24
Every single time I open this app tells me that “something went wrong” and I have to login!!!
Too many adds
by aaaasddffd on 2019/04/19 19:30
Needs less ads, takes up my time and makes me not want to watch the show just one add per episode would be fine.
Needs to update dubs
by lilsax on 2019/04/19 18:39
Hulu needs to update all the duds for naruto shippuden, don’t get me wrong it’s a good app, but it doesn’t make sense to have half of the dubs on the series updated and then to stop updating it is just ridiculous, so please just update the dubs on naruto shippuden
Review of the app (it’s poop)
by arcster0101 on 2019/04/19 18:10
Ever since installing the app I’ve had issues with it. I’m in like the third month and I just hang on because I enjoy the service so much but the app is really trying me. When you first open the app (first as in like first time of every day) it will error out anything you try to watch. Then you mess around and try to trouble shoot it and eventually it just decides to play. THEN when it FINALLY plays, at around 1-2 min IT ALWAYS AUTO FAST FORWARDS VIDEO to around 5 minutes! Only video, not audio. SO now you have to go back and find where you were and forget what you saw. But after going through all that you’re good to binge watch.... just don’t close the app or else you’ll do that all over again. iPhone XS Max, latest firmware, latest Hulu update.

Put the ad timer back!
by Rima38261 on 2019/04/19 16:24
It’s already bad enough that sometimes a 20/25 minute episode has 5 ad breaks in it.
The best app in the world
by reem the dream on 2019/04/19 16:19
This is better then Netflix Hulu has the best movie and best tv shows if you don’t have Hulu then you are missing out on the best shows and movies in the world and the old shows are still awesome
Why so many ads
by bvhhcchvydgijvufkvigkgojigkg on 2019/04/19 15:53
I just wanna watch my show with peace and then there’s that one minute ad and it’s really annoying because I am watching my favorite show and then there’s a freaking ad and really long too so yeah🙄🙄🙄🙄

Horrible
by S40M on 2019/04/19 14:44
Monthly payments to watch a ton of ads
Some shows have so many ads
by idk 🤯 on 2019/04/19 14:37
One show that I’m watching has an ad before the show starts and after the theme music and than again in the middle of the show and at the end and they can be 90 seconds long and it’s starting to get really annoying.
Why the Spanish ads!
by kylekay05 on 2019/04/19 13:32
I have never watched a Spanish show and I have all my ads in Spanish. It’s beyond annoying! Please fix it or I’m going to Netflix!
Horrible interface
by WallyZ123 on 2019/04/19 13:12
If you like tiny white fonts on a light tan background, this is the app for you! If you want to squint at tiny words with no ability to change font sizes or zoom you’ll love this gem! If you like clicking on menu items that don’t do anything, download this app! So many violations of really basic User Interface guidelines. Some features can’t be performed through the app, they refer you to the website instead. Could you perhaps provide a LINK to that webpage? No, just a vague reference please. If you designed this app for a class project, you would have failed.

Was Impossible to Subscribe to HBO
by Rosco2324 on 2019/04/19 10:27
Good luck trying to watch the last season of GoT through this weak app. App tells to go to web site, web site tells to go through iTunes, iTunes has no way to add HBO. You’d think they’d make it easier to give them more money, but it’s laughable how impossible it was. So I just went to HBO Now, which I’m sure isn’t much better.
Enjoyment
by Enloe66 on 2019/04/19 09:45
I prefer Hulu over Netflix any day more variety
The entire point of streaming
by OMFGJustANickname on 2019/04/19 07:49
The entire point of Hulu and Netflix is so I don’t have to watch 10 minutes of ads for every 5 minutes of TV. Unfortunately Hulu has become no better than cable tv as far as ad placement. Still cheaper tho so 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️ guess I’ll keep it.
crashes
by coldtommy on 2019/04/19 05:57
crashes every day
Good content, but...
by Gardenia12 on 2019/04/19 05:41
I enjoy the content, but Hulu should permit downloading of some of their content to permit offline viewing. Netflix and Amazon Prime do and it is extremely advantageous where WiFi is unavailable. I would permanently subscribe if Hulu permitted downloading. At present, I’m not sure I’ll maintain the service.
Hulu is useless.
by Sam....!' on 2019/04/19 02:00
I signed up for hulu due to a promotion being ran where you can bundle it with Spotify Premium. Immediately after creating my account and logging out I could not log back in and its like the acct I created doesn't exist. Hulu app barely works as you cannot log out and log in. Completely useless. Do yourself a favor and do use hulu unless you like problems. Im so annoyed and regret bundling these services together. Im very disappointed in their product.
Needs to go back to old format
by Jg1983567 on 2019/04/19 00:49
I can't even watch Hulu anymore because it says it is not compatible with my iPad!!!!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Can only stream 1 device at a time!
by Buzzkatt on 2019/04/19 00:29
When Hulu changes the ability to stream more than one device at a time I’ll change my review to 5 stars. And to think, I really love Hulu a lot, except for this one stupid thing. I pay $13/mo with no commercials and I expect to be able to use more than one device at a time in my household the way that Netflix allows.
I am paying for a service that I don’t get
by adenchase59 on 2019/04/19 00:28
I can only fast forward 21 minuets into my recorded shows. I will be canceling soon.
Seriously Hulu
by Rsonram on 2019/04/18 23:34
Every time I login to watch something the video keeps cutting off a few seconds in . I have contacted them with no luck . It’s so frustrating
Good app, albeit with flaws
by TCAllen07 on 2019/04/18 23:14
Overall a functional & decent app. Biggest annoyance is the slightest touch downward (some sensitive I sometimes feel the thought alone is enough) will close whatever you’re watching, and there’s no way to disable the gesture. Sometimes the pause overlay (where screen dims and all buttons are visible) just stays until you touch the screen again, risking closing it like mentioned before, and sometimes the next-episode option at the end of a show doesn’t show up. But on the whole, a good experience. I’ve been particularly impressed with Hulu’s ability to track show progress, which makes switching between devices/platforms simple and convenient.
Commercials commercials commercials
by Phoenixking1911 on 2019/04/18 22:33
This app is nothing more than a paid subscription to endless commercials I wouldn’t dare pay this again
Navigation

Commercials
by Hanoi686970 on 2019/04/18 21:33
If I’m paying for Hulu, why do I have to pay for commercials??
Sorta good
by Yosisterspannys on 2019/04/18 21:09
Sometimes it freezes up and I loose the place and episode I’m on . And the ads are annoying and the rewinding thing just dose t work that well so It’s really hard to rewatch some stuff.
Review
by 9455802 on 2019/04/18 21:08
This app is very good to have, but when I wanted to see a show that looks interesting and if i look how many season it has, it would say season 1 26episode, but it would be 13 english dub and 13 english sub.It should really have an option when you click the video(clicking a button so you can change it into sub or dub) and it should really include other episode that has it on YouTube or other apps that you can watch a show on.
First I started
by yoyo11132112 on 2019/04/18 20:39
First I started with Netflix but I liked it but now I like Hulu it has some famous shows and more
Needs Parental Lock feature
by IsraelMouton on 2019/04/18 19:44
I haven’t had any problems with the app or service crashing. My concern comes to my children’s ability to easily access content not appropriate for them. This app and service would be 5 stars if customers were able to lock all shows rated PG-14 and higher with a passcode.

A Question...
by Nahar Salem on 2019/04/18 17:56
Is the Hulu app available worldwide, cause the last time I used it, it wasn’t, and I had payed for the subscription, and it was a steal, I was just wondering if the movie “The Act” wasn’t there... Just a question... Is it available worldwide?
Problem
by bakkadgz. zb on 2019/04/18 17:25
The reason Why Netflix is better is cause hulu can’t download offline. I wish hulu fix that problem..

THE ADVERTISEMENTS
by YhhbhbhxbgBjkcdjxGhbccfa on 2019/04/18 02:29
I would enjoy Hulu so much more just like how many others would feel if you lowered how many ads are in just one episode, movie like seriously its to much half the time it’s the same ads over and over can you please do something to fix this please I enjoy the movies, Tv-shows but if you don’t lower the amount of ads it takes out the enjoyment.

Good but frustrating
by JPCM12345 on 2019/04/17 21:08
It is really frustrating to try and watch a TV series but you leave some of the episodes out of a season. Why??
I pay to not watch commercials
by fuxkallofuandurfkinnickname on 2019/04/17 20:37
I pay extra for both the no commercial version and the upgraded DVR that allows you to skip commercials. From the app to the TV I'm still stuck, not able to forward thru most commercials and if I have to still do this I'm cancelling and getting Sling.
Great! But app crashes a lot....
by xBURNERx on 2019/04/17 20:18
Would give 5 stars... but every time an episode ends app freezes. Sometimes during commercials. And since you can’t fast forward or rewind you have to close the app altogether and reopen it. Which gets really annoying when your binging a show. App needs some TLC.
too long
by ceciella on 2019/04/17 19:39
there should be an option to skip recap and to skip intro like how netflix has
Buyer beware....
by Gikamki on 2019/04/17 19:04
HULU may be available on numerous devices but good luck trying to get it to work. Also please note that some services you pay (e.g. HBO) for may not be available on devices that don’t support HULU’s latest version of its software and the only way you’ll know is if the content you look for doesn’t show up. Also their website crashes and their work arounds for issues (e.g. downloading another content providers app and logging in with your HULU account) doesn’t work.
Won’t let me log in
by No words 😍😍 on 2019/04/17 18:54
I try to log in and it won’t. I reset my password and it still won’t let me log in. I’m not paying to not be able to watch anything.
I just love it.
by OωO 123 on 2019/04/17 18:50
I’m gonna be practical. This app is really good: it has great shows..... and I guess that’s about it but it’s definitely worth getting!
Five star
by breezeb29 on 2019/04/17 18:46
Hulu is a great app! It allows me to keep up with shows since I do not have cable.

Doesn't work on my iPad
by Veganjoshua on 2019/04/17 18:34
I'm giving 3 stars here because of the content quality, content I'd never be able to see if I didn't have Hulu on other devices. It played on my iPad until an update, now attempts to sign in with the correct email and password result in being told I have the wrong password. Reset the password and tried again, still won't log in. Works on every other device but worthless to me on the one I want to use most.
Worst app ever
by tyturu on 2019/04/17 18:16
Terrible app that never loads i had to reset my password 5 or times, just not worth the hassle and the ads are the worst.
Two stars
by Matthewtheflamedragon on 2019/04/17 18:11
I like Hulu but, sometimes it has connection issues to where I can’t connect, and it’s on Hulu’s side because my wifi is working.

Missing a lot of shows and tv episodes
by Darkrise408 on 2019/04/17 15:18
If only you guys had the The Simpsons and their full seasons and episodes, that would of be been great!! The ones are ok but the old episodes are better
Way too many commercials
by Naivmevskfbwvsjsjdbd on 2019/04/17 14:57
For a 20 minute show, you have 4 commercials, each of which 90 seconds long. It completely ruins the flow of the shows, it makes it obnoxious to binge... one commercial per show makes sense, NOT 4. We already pay per month for the show, now you want to bombard us with annoying advertisements. Terrible streaming app. And i mean TERRIBLE.
Love
by Worship As 1 on 2019/04/17 14:36
Love being able to keep up with all of my shows. Even when I have to work I can watch at work the following night for lunch
I’m a fan of Joe Kenda, Homicide Hunter!
by RobinC975 on 2019/04/17 14:14
I landed here on Hulu because Netflix no longer carries Joe. I like how well it plays on my iPad. Besides Netflix needs some competition, so I hope the content improves with time here.
Love of my. Life

Ads break the app
by frozen cone on 2019/04/17 13:37
If you're trying to watch it feels like there's an ad every 10 seconds and once they're finished the show stops loading

Too many commercials

Hulu is Better
by Watertown on 2019/04/17 11:20
We have Hulu and Prime Video. I like Hulu better. More TV shows to watch and movies too.
Hulu is good
by HernandezLuna on 2019/04/17 06:30
Hulu good I just wish they would add my favorite series on their like “A love so beautiful” it would be better if they did
Hmm
by Hikinbiker on 2019/04/17 05:49
In trial YouTube tv got all of Paris-roubaix but Hulu missed the final 10k Boo. But actually think I’m keeping Hulu
Selection
by cowboys972 on 2019/04/17 05:49
I’m new to Hulu and I noticed dramatically that Hulu doesn’t have good selection of movies like Netflix.
Long ads
by Rob1453 on 2019/04/17 05:48
5 ad breaks lasting over a minute each
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.
An Affront to the Art of User Interface Design

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
Love the App but ....
by Rachel and Micah's Mom on 2018/10/23 16:52
Love the app but hate that it has a habit of crashing. Also even when my internet connection is good the app has trouble connecting. Really enjoy taking my entertainment experience every where I go. ..... but dislike the fact that I have to connect to my home internet every month to prove that I still live where I say I do. This is a big problem for me because I am not home often, and if I forget to connect when I am home , then I cannot use the app again until I return to log on again on my home network. My address is the same. My billing address is the same. WHY O WHY must I prove that I haven’t moved to another location. And where is AMC, great entertainment there, please add it to the line up !!!
Please fix....
by Moni.Moore on 2018/09/01 01:06
I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo
by tilleyrs on 2017/10/14 06:16
I'm the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it's to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your "swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards" function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
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
Disorganized
by Rebel Ghost on 2018/10/24 21:23
The constant changes to the layout just screams lack of confidence in the product and makes it very difficult to navigate. Please do something about the subpar subtitles do you actually watch and listen to the stories or are you just writing what you want. Fast forwarding and rewinding needs to be adjusted there’s nothing more frustrating then that suspenseful reveal that rolls right into commercial and you try to roll back a few seconds but have to watch another set of commercials. Very frustrating when you have to stop your device mid show only to come back to your place not saved and your going back and forth in the time line to find your spot only to have to watch two to three sets of commercials (I get that this service includes commercials but it’s the navigation that’s frustrating). Don’t be racist the stereotyping and picking what commercials you think I should watch is insulting.
Inconsistency
by Leek in boat on 2018/10/18 22:12
There is this odd occurrence whenever I use this app and I usually run into a few problems: 1) Sometimes the next episode doesn’t play. It fails to load even if I am connected to the internet, am the only one watching, and have it all paid for. 2) Sometimes, even with good connection, the app doesn’t load up anything. It’ll open but every single tab says there is nothing to see here. 3) In the same vein as failure to load following episodes, there are times where I can’t even watch a completely different show. I could let the inconsistency of following episodes in a series fail to load slide, only a small bit though, but, when I can’t watch anything else for some reason? All of a sudden nothing is watchable? In closing, either shows don’t load or the entire app doesn’t work properly. Inconsistency, sometimes it works really well and then the other half of the time it doesn’t work at all. I have deleted and reinstalled, I have turned off and restarted my phone, I have closed and restarted the app but it still has the same problem. I just end up not watching anything for a bit and do something else; which is great, although, if getting me to do something else was the goal, why pay for an inconsistent service at all?
Apply TV app is horrendous
by nathanalf on 2017/10/06 16:44
I honestly don’t even know where to begin. All the complaints below apply to the Apple TV app as that is the primary way I use it, and I can’t speak to the iPhone / iPad versions. Half the time clicking on a title does nothing, especially in the “up next” pop up when an episode ends, and if you let the timer run down it replays the episode you just watched instead of skipping to the next one. Half the time when you do play an episode either the sound is a second off from the video (only fix is force quitting the app). Also have had the video appear not the play, click to play again and now two streams of the same episode are playing (one on top of the other) resulting in double audio - and the only fix is force quitting the app. I swear half of the time I use this app it is force quitting the app and waiting for it to reload. Navigation is a HOT mess. Where are the simple badges saying which shows have a new episode available? Why is the “my stuff” category not available to filter by new episodes available? Why do I need to wait for the app to “fetch new recommendations” every single time I open it up? I love love LOVE hulu’s service, and in the past the app has been very solid. However once this redesign rolled out I feel like the quality / reliability of the app has greatly suffered.
Not showing watched
by Michellepizzalover on 2018/11/25 03:02
Many times, I finish an episode with less than a minute left and when I go back to the menu, it says resume episode, then restarts episode. I don’t want to watch it again, I just watched it. I want it to show that I watched it so it is not sitting at the top of my stuff like it is new. Sometimes I will restart the episode, fast forward to the end, then wait for the time to get down to 0 so that hopefully the episode will show as watched, which it doesn’t always do. There are currently 3 shows that I have completely watched, but say resume episode and I don’t know how to get it to acknowledge that I watched it. There must be an easier way! It’s bothersome.
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!
Five stars EXCEPT
by 👍🏼💪🏼👌🏼 on 2018/09/25 08:48
Five stars...Except the latest update. instead of the movie just automatically switching to horizontal view when you push play, it stays small and brings up the list of shows you’ve watched previously/are in the middle of. Why would I want to see those while I’m watching a show? They take up over half the screen.... It’s stupid and annoying that I have to click a million buttons just to get it to full screen. And half the time the full screen button doesn’t work cause it’s so small the heat from my finger bypasses it and just makes the play/pause/full screen options disappear—so then I have to tap it again.
Giving 5 because many fixes have been done
by Fantasticallyella on 2018/09/21 20:25
Firstly, it’s 5 to try and help weigh in against all the people who complained about losing HDMI because it’s been fixed. And on that note thank god the HDMI lightning connector works again. There was no way I was gonna budge and spring for additional technology when I’m broke A/F all the time. The overall selection seems to be getting more bunk. Maybe start adopting shows like The Last Man on Earth as Netflix has done with Arrested Development for example. That being said I still find shows on here worth the amount I pay for the subscription. Smoothish transitions from episode to episode. I think the forward / backward 10 and 30 seconds is odd I’m used to the 1:1 that most video players use. Lastly I think the selection screen - at least on a mobile device - is too large and requires too much scrolling. Again comparing to Netflix, while browsing you can view several show title cards and multiple categories at once. For the regular streamers that’s great when I’m trying to just generally peruse highlighted shows.
Anyone else disappointed with new update?
by Mooveychick on 2018/05/12 02:19
Just curious if anybody else is having trouble with the new update. There have been many times that I’ve been watching a show on my iPad, then all of a sudden it stops and an error message comes up saying I can’t watch the show in my region. I’m in the United States people! And then I try other shows and it gives me that same message. I’m also having trouble with the show playing and then all of a sudden it jumps back to the very beginning where the television network logo comes up and then it will jump back to where I was watching. I don’t know what’s going on. It was working fine prior to this update
Awful
by zhansen06 on 2017/09/14 00:18
The old app worked fine but was very clunky. I didn't think an update could be this bad. This app is difficult to use and is not intuitive at all. Oftentimes it errors out when playing the next episode of a show, forcing me to grab a device and attempt to play it again. I really just cannot stand the way this app is organized now. Sure, it's pretty, but the "Home" tab lists a SINGLE show. Across an entire iPad display. A complete waste of screen real estate. "My stuff" tab shows a list of your shows that you enjoy watching but it is organized in a complete non-categorical way. Very frustrating. Finally when you search for a show you want to watch (the best and easiest way to find anything, given this app's poor design), you have two small boxes with the last episode you left off on, and the latest episode. Once again, poor use of a huge iPad screen. You have tabs at the top for "episodes", but unless you know better, "seasons" is buried inside there as a small link. Constructive feedback? I suppose change "episodes" into a "seasons" button or something of the sort. However this won't change the overall design of the app being so poor and the waste of screen space. The old app was very old and also very clunky, BUT at least it was laid out logically.
Shows watched
by Flyerthanfly1 on 2018/10/24 02:11
For some reason, several of my shows display episodes unwatched since the first season, first episode even if I’m all caught up. I’ve tried re-watching the last/most current episode of each show to change the status to “all caught up” and I’m still not getting that status. It would be helpful if I could check which episodes I’ve already seen or check that I’m all caught up so I don’t have to try and re-watch episodes and I can be notified of new episodes. It’s really annoying to have to re-watch episodes or even trying to fast forward through episodes, but having to watch commercials to fast forward. Please don’t make me re-watch all episodes from the series premiere just to show that I’m all caught up. Please fix.
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.
Good but has one problem
by Superheroes are awesome on 2019/03/31 03:35
This app is very good if you have a premium subscription which isn’t extremely expensive compared to other streaming services. The way they market this service is truthful. But I share a subscription with other people who watch different shows than me and whenever I load up the app it recommends me their intended recommendations. It’s similar to Netflix where you still have the separate name accounts but the only thing you have to yourself is the name and the shows and movies in “my stuff”. Also if someone watched the same show as me, while sharing a subscription, you’ll pick up where they left off. Make the accounts more privatized please.
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.

I’m a capitalist I get trying to squeeze a little more profit out of your service, but this is taking it too far. Then you make it worse by making FF or RR anywhere near the commercials an invitation to watch the whole set of commercials, 200+ seconds of commercials to be exact, again! Oh and you manage to get through the commercials to start watching your show and the app locks up. You have to restart the app. Then you restart your show. Remember those commercials you watched right before the app locked up? Yep. Better get ready to sit through those same commercials again. Mind you all this is on the less commercials plan that costs extra. I was really happy with the live TV plan until you went nuts with the commercials. I’m gonna try other services like PlayStation Vue or Sling.
Previous version was better
by MichelleeRuiz on 2017/11/04 05:32
HATE how there is an Account tab but you cant do anything, all it says it to go to the site. What’s the point of it being there if you can’t do anything anyways? This should have been available a looonnggg time ago. Also, the new update made it worse, it was good before. To be brief, all the other reviewers list the same problems that I would. Also this has nothig to do with this update but it would be nice if you could make the next episode start automatically after the episode your watching ends instead of going through all the credits.
Best app I’ve seen
by TheTank421 on 2017/11/11 01:15
Everyone else complaining about commercials and missing content when rewinding or ff. There is an option to have no commercials but these poor scrubs are too cheap to pay the extra couple dollars. And they complain about problems that only exist because they create them from nothing. It’s a great app, and those who give it bad ratings, just know that they are those people that give EVERY app a bad rating because they aren’t tech savvy and are mad at the world. Nothing in this world is perfect and never will be, stop complaining about everything and give accurate responses, like me.
Not user friendly and buggy
by FatBoy1185 on 2017/10/26 22:11
It takes a while to get used to this app but it’s not intuitive at all. Like, trying to figure out how to see a specific episode, or even just trying to skip to the next episode. The other issue is that it keeps getting stuck in subtitles mode. It used to be that you’d have to turn them off every episode because they’d magically come on. Now they magically come on and you can’t turn them off. So you have to close the app after every episode and re open it again so the the subtitles go away. The other crappy thing is that if you pause the show and then touch anywhere on the screen the show jumps to a different spot on the timeline. You end up constantly changing where you’re at in the show or movie accidentally. Maybe it’s just me. Who knows. But this app needs work
Get ready to scroll
by demonduck77 on 2017/09/28 00:30
Great variety in programming, but the UI is ridiculous. You should not have to scroll through the same menu over and again. It is completely unacceptable to have to scroll through the same programs because your place is not held. Let's say you are scrolling through HBO movies and open a movie whose title starts with M. Add it to your watch list and back out to the previous menu, and it drops you all the way back at A. You are forced to scroll through all of the same programming again and again. This is with the latest update on the newest model iPad.
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.
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
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.

App refuses to work

I never have problems with Hulu. I love the options available. I sometimes get stuck on what to watch next, but all things considered...I give it 5 stars!
Honeymoon period over
by HerbS2urnerves on 2019/04/20 03:47
Its too complicated to get to live tv, to get to show information, and to get to “all channels” because for some reason it defaults to “recent channels” everytime you start the app. Reason for 1 star is the channels stopping to buffer like 50 times in a single 30 min episode. Otherwise its good that you can choose the streaming quality high, med, low.

Doesn’t let me put my email or password I’ve put everything right but it’s just no working
Bad update
by ScottRydr on 2019/04/20 01:35
New update forces you to watch a 3.5min commercial before you can rewind your DVR back to the beginning of an episode of recorded television. Never had this problem before. A bit ridiculous when you consider paying full price for for Hulu+

Fine beyond needed ad tweaks
by phone man 999 ,':} on 2019/04/19 22:37
I can completely understand needing extra funding, and 30-60 second ad breaks are actually nice for moving away to do something else. 90 second ad breaks are definitely overkill, though, spacing can be a little tight, and the variety/catering of ads could be slightly varied. Beyond that, video quality’s fine, show and movie variety is good, and UI’s good to manage. It came with Spotify for free, so no huge complaints beyond maybe shorter/less often ads.
Chromecasting Hulu causes glitches on FB
by ddsparkss on 2019/04/19 21:28
Every time I’m casting Hulu (via chrome cast) Facebook will not play videos. Not a buffer issue. Not sure if it’s a FB or Hulu problem, but it started after a recent update. Please fix in next update if it’s on Hulu’s end. Cross posted! Thanks

by aaaasddffd on 2019/04/19 19:30
Needs less ads, takes up my time and makes me not want to watch the show just one add per episode would be fine.
Needs to update dubs
by lilsax on 2019/04/19 18:39
Hulu needs to update all the duds for naruto shippuden, don’t get me wrong it’s a good app, but it doesn’t make sense to have half of the dubs on the series updated and then to stop updating it is just ridiculous, so please just update the dubs on naruto shippuden
Review of the app (it’s poop)
by arcster0101 on 2019/04/19 18:10
Ever since installing the app I’ve had issues with it. I’m in like the third month and I just hang on because I enjoy the service so much but the app is really trying me. When you first open the app (first as in like first time of every day) it will error out anything you try to watch. Then you mess around and try to trouble shoot it and eventually it just decides to play. THEN when it FINALLY plays, at around 1-2 min IT ALWAYS AUTO FAST FORWARDS VIDEO to around 5 minutes! Only video, not audio. SO now you have to go back and find where you were and forget what you saw. But after going through all that you’re good to binge watch.... just don’t close the app or else you’ll do that all over again. iPhone XS Max, latest firmware, latest Hulu update.

One show that I’m watching has an ad before the show starts and after the theme music and than again in the middle of the show and at the end and they can be 90 seconds long and it’s starting to get really annoying.
Why the Spanish ads!

Horrible interface
by WallyZ123 on 2019/04/19 13:12
If you like tiny white fonts on a light tan background, this is the app for you! If you want to squint at tiny words with no ability to change font sizes or zoom you’ll love this gem! If you like clicking on menu items that don’t do anything, download this app! So many violations of really basic User Interface guidelines. Some features can’t be performed through the app, they refer you to the website instead. Could you perhaps provide a LINK to that webpage? No, just a vague reference please. If you designed this app for a class project, you would have failed.

Was Impossible to Subscribe to HBO
by Rosco2324 on 2019/04/19 10:27
Good luck trying to watch the last season of GoT through this weak app. App tells to go to web site, web site tells to go through iTunes, iTunes has no way to add HBO. You’d think they’d make it easier to give them more money, but it’s laughable how impossible it was. So I just went to HBO Now, which I’m sure isn’t much better.

The entire point of streaming
by OMFGJustANickname on 2019/04/19 07:49
The entire point of Hulu and Netflix is so I don’t have to watch 10 minutes of ads for every 5 minutes of TV. Unfortunately Hulu has become no better than cable tv as far as ad placement. Still cheaper tho so 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️ guess I’ll keep it.

Good content, but...
by Gardenia12 on 2019/04/19 05:41
I enjoy the content, but Hulu should permit downloading of some of their content to permit offline viewing. Netflix and Amazon Prime do and it is extremely advantageous where WiFi is unavailable. I would permanently subscribe if Hulu permitted downloading. At present, I’m not sure I’ll maintain the service.
Hulu is useless.
by Sam....!' on 2019/04/19 02:00
I signed up for hulu due to a promotion being ran where you can bundle it with Spotify Premium. Immediately after creating my account and logging out I could not log back in and its like the acct I created doesn't exist. Hulu app barely works as you cannot log out and log in. Completely useless. Do yourself a favor and do use hulu unless you like problems. Im so annoyed and regret bundling these services together. Im very disappointed in their product.

Can only stream 1 device at a time!
by Buzzkatt on 2019/04/19 00:29
When Hulu changes the ability to stream more than one device at a time I’ll change my review to 5 stars. And to think, I really love Hulu a lot, except for this one stupid thing. I pay $13/mo with no commercials and I expect to be able to use more than one device at a time in my household the way that Netflix allows.

Seriously Hulu
by Rsonram on 2019/04/18 23:34
Every time I login to watch something the video keeps cutting off a few seconds in . I have contacted them with no luck . It’s so frustrating
Good app, albeit with flaws
by TCAllen07 on 2019/04/18 23:14
Overall a functional & decent app. Biggest annoyance is the slightest touch downward (some sensitive I sometimes feel the thought alone is enough) will close whatever you’re watching, and there’s no way to disable the gesture. Sometimes the pause overlay (where screen dims and all buttons are visible) just stays until you touch the screen again, risking closing it like mentioned before, and sometimes the next-episode option at the end of a show doesn’t show up. But on the whole, a good experience. I’ve been particularly impressed with Hulu’s ability to track show progress, which makes switching between devices/platforms simple and convenient.
Commercials commercials commercials

Review
by 9455802 on 2019/04/18 21:08
This app is very good to have, but when I wanted to see a show that looks interesting and if i look how many season it has, it would say season 1 26episode, but it would be 13 english dub and 13 english sub.It should really have an option when you click the video(clicking a button so you can change it into sub or dub) and it should really include other episode that has it on YouTube or other apps that you can watch a show on.
First I started
by yoyo11132112 on 2019/04/18 20:39
First I started with Netflix but I liked it but now I like Hulu it has some famous shows and more
Needs Parental Lock feature
by IsraelMouton on 2019/04/18 19:44
I haven’t had any problems with the app or service crashing. My concern comes to my children’s ability to easily access content not appropriate for them. This app and service would be 5 stars if customers were able to lock all shows rated PG-14 and higher with a passcode.

Scam
by Hdhdaidjcjdjaoksnx on 2019/04/18 08:37
I went online, paid for one punch man, opened the app, and the series is “unavailable”.... there goes my five bucks, for nothing.
Hulu rock
by campoo69 on 2019/04/18 07:39
I love me some Hulu it’s so much better than Netflix and give so many option and movie series to watch
No 4K or HDR
by tacshose on 2019/04/18 05:59
Without 4K or HDR HULU is far behind Netflix and Prime
I love it’s

THE ADVERTISEMENTS
by YhhbhbhxbgBjkcdjxGhbccfa on 2019/04/18 02:29
I would enjoy Hulu so much more just like how many others would feel if you lowered how many ads are in just one episode, movie like seriously its to much half the time it’s the same ads over and over can you please do something to fix this please I enjoy the movies, Tv-shows but if you don’t lower the amount of ads it takes out the enjoyment.
App never works

App never works properly
Needs Slam Dunk Back
by Fernadlouis on 2019/04/18 01:45
Slam dunk is my favorite anime and also the main reason for me to get Hulu but it's not in Hulu anymore!😤😤😤
Almost perfect but the interface ...
by jonclare36 on 2019/04/18 01:40
Perfect but the interface is not user friendly Netflix is better and smoother switching shows

Good but frustrating
by JPCM12345 on 2019/04/17 21:08
It is really frustrating to try and watch a TV series but you leave some of the episodes out of a season. Why??
I pay to not watch commercials
by fuxkallofuandurfkinnickname on 2019/04/17 20:37
I pay extra for both the no commercial version and the upgraded DVR that allows you to skip commercials. From the app to the TV I'm still stuck, not able to forward thru most commercials and if I have to still do this I'm cancelling and getting Sling.
Great! But app crashes a lot....
by xBURNERx on 2019/04/17 20:18
Would give 5 stars... but every time an episode ends app freezes. Sometimes during commercials. And since you can’t fast forward or rewind you have to close the app altogether and reopen it. Which gets really annoying when your binging a show. App needs some TLC.
too long
by ceciella on 2019/04/17 19:39
there should be an option to skip recap and to skip intro like how netflix has
Buyer beware....
by Gikamki on 2019/04/17 19:04
HULU may be available on numerous devices but good luck trying to get it to work. Also please note that some services you pay (e.g. HBO) for may not be available on devices that don’t support HULU’s latest version of its software and the only way you’ll know is if the content you look for doesn’t show up. Also their website crashes and their work arounds for issues (e.g. downloading another content providers app and logging in with your HULU account) doesn’t work.
Won’t let me log in
by No words 😍😍 on 2019/04/17 18:54
I try to log in and it won’t. I reset my password and it still won’t let me log in. I’m not paying to not be able to watch anything.
I just love it.
by OωO 123 on 2019/04/17 18:50
I’m gonna be practical. This app is really good: it has great shows..... and I guess that’s about it but it’s definitely worth getting!
Five star
by breezeb29 on 2019/04/17 18:46
Hulu is a great app! It allows me to keep up with shows since I do not have cable.
"You Appear to be Offline"

Couldn't do this if I was. Fix your bugs.
Doesn't work on my iPad
by Veganjoshua on 2019/04/17 18:34
I'm giving 3 stars here because of the content quality, content I'd never be able to see if I didn't have Hulu on other devices. It played on my iPad until an update, now attempts to sign in with the correct email and password result in being told I have the wrong password. Reset the password and tried again, still won't log in. Works on every other device but worthless to me on the one I want to use most.
Worst app ever
by tyturu on 2019/04/17 18:16
Terrible app that never loads i had to reset my password 5 or times, just not worth the hassle and the ads are the worst.
Two stars
by Matthewtheflamedragon on 2019/04/17 18:11
I like Hulu but, sometimes it has connection issues to where I can’t connect, and it’s on Hulu’s side because my wifi is working.

Missing a lot of shows and tv episodes
by Darkrise408 on 2019/04/17 15:18
If only you guys had the The Simpsons and their full seasons and episodes, that would of be been great!! The ones are ok but the old episodes are better
Way too many commercials
by Naivmevskfbwvsjsjdbd on 2019/04/17 14:57
For a 20 minute show, you have 4 commercials, each of which 90 seconds long. It completely ruins the flow of the shows, it makes it obnoxious to binge... one commercial per show makes sense, NOT 4. We already pay per month for the show, now you want to bombard us with annoying advertisements. Terrible streaming app. And i mean TERRIBLE.
Love
by Worship As 1 on 2019/04/17 14:36
Love being able to keep up with all of my shows. Even when I have to work I can watch at work the following night for lunch
I’m a fan of Joe Kenda, Homicide Hunter!
by RobinC975 on 2019/04/17 14:14
I landed here on Hulu because Netflix no longer carries Joe. I like how well it plays on my iPad. Besides Netflix needs some competition, so I hope the content improves with time here.
Love of my. Life

Ads break the app

I wish it would play in the background. It has a great selection though.
Hulu is Better
by Watertown on 2019/04/17 11:20
We have Hulu and Prime Video. I like Hulu better. More TV shows to watch and movies too.
Hulu is good
by HernandezLuna on 2019/04/17 06:30
Hulu good I just wish they would add my favorite series on their like “A love so beautiful” it would be better if they did
Hmm
by Hikinbiker on 2019/04/17 05:49
In trial YouTube tv got all of Paris-roubaix but Hulu missed the final 10k Boo. But actually think I’m keeping Hulu
Selection
by cowboys972 on 2019/04/17 05:49
I’m new to Hulu and I noticed dramatically that Hulu doesn’t have good selection of movies like Netflix.
Long ads
by Rob1453 on 2019/04/17 05:48
5 ad breaks lasting over a minute each
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.
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
Love the App but ....
by Rachel and Micah's Mom on 2018/10/23 16:52
Love the app but hate that it has a habit of crashing. Also even when my internet connection is good the app has trouble connecting. Really enjoy taking my entertainment experience every where I go. ..... but dislike the fact that I have to connect to my home internet every month to prove that I still live where I say I do. This is a big problem for me because I am not home often, and if I forget to connect when I am home , then I cannot use the app again until I return to log on again on my home network. My address is the same. My billing address is the same. WHY O WHY must I prove that I haven’t moved to another location. And where is AMC, great entertainment there, please add it to the line up !!!
Please fix....
by Moni.Moore on 2018/09/01 01:06
I don’t write reviews but enough is enough. Please back to the old interface but this one is horrible. FF/RW, HORRIBLE! Whenever I “start watching” a show like Will and Grace, I’ll watch two or three episode and I’ll close the app. When I go back in to pick up where I left off, not only is the show not at the top of my stuff (it’s at the bottom) but it doesn’t save my progress, so I don’t know with episode to start with... The updates are ruining this app... The app was working fine until y’all started “fixing” it. AND ANOTHER THING, sometimes the next episode won’t play unless I come completely out of the show and go back in and then I have to remember which episode it is... I see all of these reviews that go back months, why are we still having these same issues months later... I like your service but will not continue to pay for a service that has been jinky for MONTHS, not days or weeks but MONTHS. PLEASE DO BETTER!
Swipe to fast forward has got to gooooo
by tilleyrs on 2017/10/14 06:16
I'm the kind of person who touches their screen constantly while watching a show, whether it's to check the time or to wipe a smudge or see how far along in the show I am. With your "swipe anywhere on the screen to go forward or backwards" function, I am constantly being forced to watch and rewatch extra ads, and to try and re-find wherever I was in the show before my accidental swipe. Please consider reinstating the setup with the bar at the bottom that had the button where I had to be very intentional with my tapping in order to change location in the playing time. This will make using your platform much easier on my mental health, and on my phone that gets hurled across the room every time I shoot forward 10 minutes in an episode of The Mindy Project and get stuck with an extra 120 seconds of Chevy commercials. I beg you.
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
Disorganized
by Rebel Ghost on 2018/10/24 21:23
The constant changes to the layout just screams lack of confidence in the product and makes it very difficult to navigate. Please do something about the subpar subtitles do you actually watch and listen to the stories or are you just writing what you want. Fast forwarding and rewinding needs to be adjusted there’s nothing more frustrating then that suspenseful reveal that rolls right into commercial and you try to roll back a few seconds but have to watch another set of commercials. Very frustrating when you have to stop your device mid show only to come back to your place not saved and your going back and forth in the time line to find your spot only to have to watch two to three sets of commercials (I get that this service includes commercials but it’s the navigation that’s frustrating). Don’t be racist the stereotyping and picking what commercials you think I should watch is insulting.
Inconsistency
by Leek in boat on 2018/10/18 22:12
There is this odd occurrence whenever I use this app and I usually run into a few problems: 1) Sometimes the next episode doesn’t play. It fails to load even if I am connected to the internet, am the only one watching, and have it all paid for. 2) Sometimes, even with good connection, the app doesn’t load up anything. It’ll open but every single tab says there is nothing to see here. 3) In the same vein as failure to load following episodes, there are times where I can’t even watch a completely different show. I could let the inconsistency of following episodes in a series fail to load slide, only a small bit though, but, when I can’t watch anything else for some reason? All of a sudden nothing is watchable? In closing, either shows don’t load or the entire app doesn’t work properly. Inconsistency, sometimes it works really well and then the other half of the time it doesn’t work at all. I have deleted and reinstalled, I have turned off and restarted my phone, I have closed and restarted the app but it still has the same problem. I just end up not watching anything for a bit and do something else; which is great, although, if getting me to do something else was the goal, why pay for an inconsistent service at all?
Apply TV app is horrendous
by nathanalf on 2017/10/06 16:44
I honestly don’t even know where to begin. All the complaints below apply to the Apple TV app as that is the primary way I use it, and I can’t speak to the iPhone / iPad versions. Half the time clicking on a title does nothing, especially in the “up next” pop up when an episode ends, and if you let the timer run down it replays the episode you just watched instead of skipping to the next one. Half the time when you do play an episode either the sound is a second off from the video (only fix is force quitting the app). Also have had the video appear not the play, click to play again and now two streams of the same episode are playing (one on top of the other) resulting in double audio - and the only fix is force quitting the app. I swear half of the time I use this app it is force quitting the app and waiting for it to reload. Navigation is a HOT mess. Where are the simple badges saying which shows have a new episode available? Why is the “my stuff” category not available to filter by new episodes available? Why do I need to wait for the app to “fetch new recommendations” every single time I open it up? I love love LOVE hulu’s service, and in the past the app has been very solid. However once this redesign rolled out I feel like the quality / reliability of the app has greatly suffered.
Not showing watched
by Michellepizzalover on 2018/11/25 03:02
Many times, I finish an episode with less than a minute left and when I go back to the menu, it says resume episode, then restarts episode. I don’t want to watch it again, I just watched it. I want it to show that I watched it so it is not sitting at the top of my stuff like it is new. Sometimes I will restart the episode, fast forward to the end, then wait for the time to get down to 0 so that hopefully the episode will show as watched, which it doesn’t always do. There are currently 3 shows that I have completely watched, but say resume episode and I don’t know how to get it to acknowledge that I watched it. There must be an easier way! It’s bothersome.
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!
Five stars EXCEPT
by 👍🏼💪🏼👌🏼 on 2018/09/25 08:48
Five stars...Except the latest update. instead of the movie just automatically switching to horizontal view when you push play, it stays small and brings up the list of shows you’ve watched previously/are in the middle of. Why would I want to see those while I’m watching a show? They take up over half the screen.... It’s stupid and annoying that I have to click a million buttons just to get it to full screen. And half the time the full screen button doesn’t work cause it’s so small the heat from my finger bypasses it and just makes the play/pause/full screen options disappear—so then I have to tap it again.
Giving 5 because many fixes have been done
by Fantasticallyella on 2018/09/21 20:25
Firstly, it’s 5 to try and help weigh in against all the people who complained about losing HDMI because it’s been fixed. And on that note thank god the HDMI lightning connector works again. There was no way I was gonna budge and spring for additional technology when I’m broke A/F all the time. The overall selection seems to be getting more bunk. Maybe start adopting shows like The Last Man on Earth as Netflix has done with Arrested Development for example. That being said I still find shows on here worth the amount I pay for the subscription. Smoothish transitions from episode to episode. I think the forward / backward 10 and 30 seconds is odd I’m used to the 1:1 that most video players use. Lastly I think the selection screen - at least on a mobile device - is too large and requires too much scrolling. Again comparing to Netflix, while browsing you can view several show title cards and multiple categories at once. For the regular streamers that’s great when I’m trying to just generally peruse highlighted shows.
Anyone else disappointed with new update?
by Mooveychick on 2018/05/12 02:19
Just curious if anybody else is having trouble with the new update. There have been many times that I’ve been watching a show on my iPad, then all of a sudden it stops and an error message comes up saying I can’t watch the show in my region. I’m in the United States people! And then I try other shows and it gives me that same message. I’m also having trouble with the show playing and then all of a sudden it jumps back to the very beginning where the television network logo comes up and then it will jump back to where I was watching. I don’t know what’s going on. It was working fine prior to this update
Awful
by zhansen06 on 2017/09/14 00:18
The old app worked fine but was very clunky. I didn't think an update could be this bad. This app is difficult to use and is not intuitive at all. Oftentimes it errors out when playing the next episode of a show, forcing me to grab a device and attempt to play it again. I really just cannot stand the way this app is organized now. Sure, it's pretty, but the "Home" tab lists a SINGLE show. Across an entire iPad display. A complete waste of screen real estate. "My stuff" tab shows a list of your shows that you enjoy watching but it is organized in a complete non-categorical way. Very frustrating. Finally when you search for a show you want to watch (the best and easiest way to find anything, given this app's poor design), you have two small boxes with the last episode you left off on, and the latest episode. Once again, poor use of a huge iPad screen. You have tabs at the top for "episodes", but unless you know better, "seasons" is buried inside there as a small link. Constructive feedback? I suppose change "episodes" into a "seasons" button or something of the sort. However this won't change the overall design of the app being so poor and the waste of screen space. The old app was very old and also very clunky, BUT at least it was laid out logically.
Shows watched
by Flyerthanfly1 on 2018/10/24 02:11
For some reason, several of my shows display episodes unwatched since the first season, first episode even if I’m all caught up. I’ve tried re-watching the last/most current episode of each show to change the status to “all caught up” and I’m still not getting that status. It would be helpful if I could check which episodes I’ve already seen or check that I’m all caught up so I don’t have to try and re-watch episodes and I can be notified of new episodes. It’s really annoying to have to re-watch episodes or even trying to fast forward through episodes, but having to watch commercials to fast forward. Please don’t make me re-watch all episodes from the series premiere just to show that I’m all caught up. Please fix.
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.
Good but has one problem
by Superheroes are awesome on 2019/03/31 03:35
This app is very good if you have a premium subscription which isn’t extremely expensive compared to other streaming services. The way they market this service is truthful. But I share a subscription with other people who watch different shows than me and whenever I load up the app it recommends me their intended recommendations. It’s similar to Netflix where you still have the separate name accounts but the only thing you have to yourself is the name and the shows and movies in “my stuff”. Also if someone watched the same show as me, while sharing a subscription, you’ll pick up where they left off. Make the accounts more privatized please.
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.
Previous version was better
by MichelleeRuiz on 2017/11/04 05:32
HATE how there is an Account tab but you cant do anything, all it says it to go to the site. What’s the point of it being there if you can’t do anything anyways? This should have been available a looonnggg time ago. Also, the new update made it worse, it was good before. To be brief, all the other reviewers list the same problems that I would. Also this has nothig to do with this update but it would be nice if you could make the next episode start automatically after the episode your watching ends instead of going through all the credits.
Best app I’ve seen
by TheTank421 on 2017/11/11 01:15
Everyone else complaining about commercials and missing content when rewinding or ff. There is an option to have no commercials but these poor scrubs are too cheap to pay the extra couple dollars. And they complain about problems that only exist because they create them from nothing. It’s a great app, and those who give it bad ratings, just know that they are those people that give EVERY app a bad rating because they aren’t tech savvy and are mad at the world. Nothing in this world is perfect and never will be, stop complaining about everything and give accurate responses, like me.
Not user friendly and buggy
by FatBoy1185 on 2017/10/26 22:11
It takes a while to get used to this app but it’s not intuitive at all. Like, trying to figure out how to see a specific episode, or even just trying to skip to the next episode. The other issue is that it keeps getting stuck in subtitles mode. It used to be that you’d have to turn them off every episode because they’d magically come on. Now they magically come on and you can’t turn them off. So you have to close the app after every episode and re open it again so the the subtitles go away. The other crappy thing is that if you pause the show and then touch anywhere on the screen the show jumps to a different spot on the timeline. You end up constantly changing where you’re at in the show or movie accidentally. Maybe it’s just me. Who knows. But this app needs work
Get ready to scroll
by demonduck77 on 2017/09/28 00:30
Great variety in programming, but the UI is ridiculous. You should not have to scroll through the same menu over and again. It is completely unacceptable to have to scroll through the same programs because your place is not held. Let's say you are scrolling through HBO movies and open a movie whose title starts with M. Add it to your watch list and back out to the previous menu, and it drops you all the way back at A. You are forced to scroll through all of the same programming again and again. This is with the latest update on the newest model iPad.
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.
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
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.
