What year is it?
Frustrated Sports Fan on 2/19/2018
I’m shocked... and not in a good way. The interface is annoying and not intuitive. The ads... ohhh the ads... I was expecting “limited ads” (translates to 5 ad cycles per 45 mins), but I didn’t realize how much they would disturb my ability to browse. If you want to go back, you have to catch it before you get stuck in a 2-3 min ad cycle. Also, if you accidentally move to a different part in the episode, you have to watch ads before you know where you’re at.
Stuck in a loop
pagefold on 2/19/2018
The only thing the Hulu app will do is ask me to login or restore a purchase. I have an account with a trial subscribed in my iTunes account, but the Hulu app just throws an unnamed error and won’t get past the login or create account screen. Total waste of time. Zero stars if that was an option.
Best for tv episodes
Shearersbostons on 2/19/2018
I’m loving this service. I can see all the shows I like the next day after they air and I can catch up on other ones I’d missed. I have other streaming services too but I watch Hulu the most. Great service👍
Love/hate relationship
Glowboxx on 2/19/2018
I HATE the stupid scrubbing! I’m always accidentally skipping ahead and then I can’t find where I was, and then when I do find where I was it takes forever to load and I have to watch like 5 commercials! You guys need to fix it, or give us an option to go back to last watched time, something! It’s awful!
Very sad on 2/19/2018
99% of the time we use Hulu, we use it by connecting to the TV via an HDMI cord from our iPhone. This has worked 75% of the time, with the occasional problem of having zero picture with sound. Mind you, when this happens everything else works fine; anything else displayed on my phone outside of Hulu, INCLUDING NETFLIX and YouTube!!! After unplugging and restarting my iphone the problem would eventually correct itself. However, ever since I updated, the only picture with sound I get are COMMERCIALS. As soon as the show starts all that displays on the tv screen is the network logo in the bottom corner, full sound, and a black screen. Sorry Hulu but we're not paying to watch commercials and LISTEN to shows. If this problem isn't resolved within a couple weeks we'll be canceling our subscription.
Icarus2064 on 2/19/2018
The content is great. The app organization and navigation is not. I wish the Hulu TV had a guide of some sort. Not impressed, but the TV is still in beta so I guess we'll see!
hulu you were asome now 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏼👎🏼
palermo!!! on 2/19/2018
Hate new Version👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽 Too confusing Very cluttered, And to top it off episodes are getting to race without any notice!!!!! I’ve been with HULU since the beginning But if this continues I will cancel. FIX IT PLEASE! Go back to old Version!!!!!!!!
Not happy!
Sarahbear1125 on 2/19/2018
I love hulu! I get to catch up on all the latest tv shows and old school movies, but it upsets me that when I try to connect it to my hdmi adapter for my iPhone, it won’t allow me to play it on my tv. It just plays the sound, but no picture. Extremely upsetting!
Won’t connect with my tv
Eazyesian on 2/19/2018
I have the apple cable that you hook up to ur phone and hook up the the hdmi cord and it won’t work all it does is play the sound can y’all please fix it
Big Will 6966 on 2/19/2018
My weekly 1 star until you fix it. This app is awful it doesn't do anything right.
Horrible new interface
Orlandokn on 2/19/2018
Not intuitive at all. It doesn’t matter that it’s pretty if it’s not easy to use.
Fast-forwarding and Re-winding
Courtney Drye on 2/19/2018
I was hoping that the new update would change the way you fast-forward and re-wind but it didn’t. It’s such a pain because if your in the middle of an episode and accidentally tap the screen it skips to wherever you tapped. Then not only do u have to figure out where in the episode you left off but you’ll probably have to watch a ton of commercials to get there. Not worth it. Probably deleting my subscription unless this gets changed.
Offline plus bad ui
Asuperman on 2/18/2018
Come on add offline mode like Netflix and amazon. Next your search needs to be better. The ui is annoying and frustrating to use compare to other streaming services
Live doesn’t work.
whoismikepierce on 2/18/2018
Imagine watching the Super Bowl with friends and the feed randomly jumping back 45 minutes and you miss the game ending drive. That’s real. That’s Hulu Live.
Steviee on 2/18/2018
Made an account and paid for service and won’t let me log in. What a waste of money.
This app is garbage
Chuckman304 on 2/18/2018
What complete garbage. I made the mistake of signing up for a free trial now can’t log in to cancel. Can’t reset password. Log in used on tv Never worked on app or website. What a joke.
So difficult to update card info
Erik8511 on 2/18/2018
I’m trying to update my card info you guys tell me to go to your site but now I’m being directed to amazon which is dumb my card info is already updated on amazon , i don’t know why i can’t update my card info on your app or official website . I don’t have this trouble with Netflix . Also your site crashes allot .
Having trouble loading
bdavis5503 on 2/18/2018
If I get this message one more time!! 100mps of internet speed and it seems like every time I sit down to watch live TV I can’t get through 15 minutes of my show before the dreaded message of “having trouble loading your show” reload...go back! Either way it takes 20 minutes for the app to start working again! I know Directv Now is making changes so it may be time to start a free trial and jump ship!
Deserves negative stars
DozTacos2018 on 2/18/2018
I can’t live stream tv without Hulu having to reload or exiting the app to go another show or go from one end of the app to another . I don’t think they even care. I am using roku4 .. also a piece of crap.
Holy crap
שטיכ דרכ on 2/18/2018
Learn something from Netflix and amazon your app blows and for the same reason all the other 1 stars were posted out there
Back to Netflix!
Kk4255 on 2/18/2018
I don’t understand why Hulu hasn’t updated its software where you can play your videos through an HMDI cord. I thought I would like Hulu since it supposedly has more popular moves and shows but if I can’t play it on my tv, I’m switching back to Netflix!
Worst update ever
JennUrr on 2/18/2018
I used to have this app on my (older) iPad mini with no problems. I was even able to use the device as a remote control and stream on my tv (using the Apple TV feature). Well, that’s totally fine now. In fact, I removed it entirely because it wasn’t working and now, to get it back on my iPad mini, I have to update to the new iOS...which is impossible. So I hate it. It’s unusable. Change it back. You have seriously infuriated your customers.
Absolute worst app on my phone.
samuel745 on 2/18/2018
After duping me into building another unnecessary profile. I couldn’t get out of it. There was no way to escape and get back to the original page so I could delete this new superfluous profile. I wanted to explore Hulu and see if I could find something interesting to watch. I think now I’m going to have to delete this app because ... well it’s waste of memory on my phone. HULU? Really?
Donttrip.igotthis on 2/18/2018
Dosnt work, fix bugs for mobile plz.
Lost my money
Asche628 on 2/18/2018
I had an regular account but I bought the one with no ads so after I bought it I tried to switch my plan but was but it showed me the option to pay for a new one so I go through the option and I got tired so I quit for that day. So the next day I tried to watch some rick and Morty but it said that I didn’t how any trial. And I tried everything to fix it but it just didn’t in the end I lost about 18 dollars. So it was a complete waste for me.
No issues with this app!
Lady gaga41840 on 2/18/2018
Really nice app! Hulu is so good!! We love it! Totally recommend it! 😃
Buffering out of control
Shellz0697 on 2/18/2018
I have NEVER had an app that buffers on me this much. Most nights I spend more time watching Hulu buffer than I do watching the actual episode. Ironically, Hulu is also the most expensive app I have ever paid for. Netflix is less expensive and it doesn’t buffer on me. As soon as I’m done with the show I’m watching, I’m CANCELING my subscription to Hulu....
JOJO873 on 2/18/2018
The customer service is garbage. Wait an hour to maybe get a hold of someone. Also when my sports teams are playing consistently states there is no game in progress. Even though I pay for live t.v. I will probably try another service. If I could give this app a negative 0 I would accept I’m a soldier an stuck with this crap. Did I mention it’s garbage!!!!
Rclarkson on 2/18/2018
It would be great if it didn't spend so much time buffering! You get tired of it doing that so much I just turn it off. I'm not going to pay for something that I can't enjoy. Just not worth it
Great content, garbage app
Mike Ricky on 2/18/2018
I've started using Hulu more often since it started housing shows that Netflix lost. Hulu's user interface is leaps and bounds behind Netflix. Doesn't save your show progress correctly, pausing a show jumps the timeline to another spot, gets stuck in loading loops requiring app restart, long loads to black 'advertising' screens on the no-advertising plan, on and on and on.
Mrs. Styles(; on 2/18/2018
I think it's hilarious how Hulu can always load an ad but never the actual episode. Also, 9.5 out of 10 times this app either won't open or won't load once it does open. This is the worst streaming app out there.
Scrubbing system needs update ASAP
uzy100 on 2/18/2018
Don’t try to reinvent the wheel. Change your scrubbing system to something similar to the standard bar at the bottom. Every time I pause the video I accidentally hit the screen wrong and it changes the time in the show. Better I have to watch more commercials. Can you ease up on the commercials. I mean Jesus Christ 80 seconds every 5 minutes.
This app has been totally disappointing
JNFreebs on 2/18/2018
Please please please make sure that i am not charged at the end of my first free month. App is totally glitchy, have not been able to even get to the screen where i could choose a video to watch. Also impossible to connect w company to make sure that my profile is removed, erased and not charged ever for this experience.
Still bad
JDLBB on 2/18/2018
Just bad.
Bad Update
Chained029.8 on 2/18/2018
The new user interface is absolutely awful. It’s difficult to find new shows or keep up with shows I want to watch. It looks pretty, but if incredibly inconvenient and impractical.
Doesn’t fire up
radiokilla14 on 2/18/2018
HULU hasn’t let me passed the sign up process and it’s kind of irritating. I’ve been trying to sign up and it’s been giving me annoying errors.
Too many bugs
abbyhhearneee on 2/18/2018
Should be able to watch a show continuously without it disconnecting, with Netflix it will automatic play the next one
Bfhfnc on 2/17/2018
Fix fast forward and rewind controls because it’s annoying af and I’m far from the only one that feels this way. It generates more ad money for you all but at the expense of user experience.
F Hulu
DJCfromCA on 2/17/2018
The ole bait and switch for the olympics? I don’t care that much. Take your app and shove it!
Not sure why I am paying for Hulu
1himalaya on 2/17/2018
Worst experience ever. My wife is mad at me everyday because I suggested her Hulu to watch Olympics live and paid for the subscription. There hasn’t been a single day when we were able to watch anything that mattered to us without interruption or the program abruptly switching at moments with the most dramatic potential. Right when Nathan Chen is about to land a quad for instance. Also, the Hulu app on Apple TV is THE worst designed app I have ever used. Today, the service stopped working all together. What a way to spend Saturday night. After spending an hour resetting the Apple TV and downloading Hulu again and hitting retry, I am on my way to buy some post-Valentine’s day sale roses for my wife to save the day. Such is life with Hulu...🤷‍♂️
Never works
SaraHsareewww on 2/17/2018
I use to LOVE Hulu. But ever since the App has updated it has been AWFUL. First the app on my phone for some reason doesn’t show up on my main screen, i have to go into the App Store and search Hulu then click open in order to use it. Then it takes FOREVER to load. And sometimes not even loading at all. The first time this happened i thought that it was the WiFi i was using at the time. So i switched to my own phone data and that still didn’t help. Then i used a different WiFi and still the same results. It constantly says that’s it’s loading and buffering. It’s always a gamble as to whether or not i will actually be able to finish my show. On my Xbox the app literally doesn’t even work anymore. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no success. When i open the app it looks like it will open and then the screen says loading error. Every. Time. So no Hulu on my tv for me. And even when watching from my browser i can barely watch half the time because the shows always pause and buffer. I know it is not my WiFi because I have no problem with Netflix or doing anything thing else with my WiFi. It is only Hulu. It is incredibly frustrating to be paying for this service and for it to not work a majority of the time. I have actually considered canceling my subscription for good, because what is the point in giving Hulu my money if i can never use it.
Poor interface in shows
vu.mark1 on 2/17/2018
Fwd/rev nav is frustratingly non-intuitive. Touching anywhere onscreen can cause a huge jump backward or forward, causing me to lose my place
You need more efficient engineers
nickthenerd on 2/17/2018
I barely used this app in the two days I’ve had it and it has crippled my battery life. My phone is not old and was fine before I downloaded Hulu. Find someone who can lighten the load on my phone. Even after watching a few half-hour episodes, Netflix doesn’t affect my charge nearly as much. Also, please allow me to watch to an HDMI output. If it’s a licensing thing, then negotiate for it. Every other app can do it just fine.
Ok but could be better
SnickersDominiqueAlyssa on 2/17/2018
I think Hulu is ok but it would be better if it gave the option to connect from device option like Netflix. So that you could connect it from your phone straight to the tv. That would be awesome. Also maybe keep episodes on longer. I hate when I’m watching a show and they take the first few episodes off before I was able to watch it. So then I have to find a way to watch it but other then that I don’t really have any complaints.
Selected shows
Yakiritruth on 2/17/2018
I wish Hulu had an option to remove or block shows that I don't want to watch. For instance, after I watch The View, it keeps trying to automatically play South Park - a show I absolutely despise. Plus, it added Desperate Housewives (another show I don't like) to my "Keep Watching" list because I fell asleep and the show auto-played. If I had more control over my viewing options and watch lists, I'd give Hulu 5-stars.
Sport'nWOOD on 2/17/2018
Just a junk update SO laggy! I think I’m going back to Netflix
Worst app ever.
Diesalot326 on 2/17/2018
This app is seriously the worst app I’ve ever used. Not only on my phone but also on my firestick. Im so glad I do not have to pay for Hulu because I would never pay for a service that barely even works. My internet is fine, everything else works fine but Hulu constantly buffers and freezes. Netflix never does that to me. Not to mention how horrible the fast forward and rewind is. If I accidentally hit it then I’ve got a good 5 to 10 minutes before I can get back to where I was. I hate this app. I’ll never pay for Hulu. Ever.
It awful!!
Jsjsjsjshshzb on 2/17/2018
The ads are awful every single sec u get a add. They play the same ads over and over again and if u don’t want ads u have to pay more. When u go to pause the movie or show you are watching you can rewind of forward on accident and it’s a pain just a awful company. just go for Netflix way better has no ads to.
Eijh on 2/17/2018
This UI update is so horrible and unusable, anyone who participated in this UI overhaul should never be offered another design job period. If I was a candidate I’d leave this out of the resume. Otherwise it’s going straight to the shredder.
Terrible user experience
CadenCassano on 2/17/2018
The fast forward rewind thing really gets me angry. You try to tap the screen to pause a show and if you hit it in the wrong spot it throws you to a completely different part of the show. They need to fix this now.
