New in version 5.23.1

New: Find all your live TV in one place. If you are a Hulu with Live TV subscriber, you’ll see a lightning icon in your app’s global navigation. From now on that will be the place you go if you want to see what’s live. Playback will start immediately on your last-watched channel.
New: We learned from your feedback that if you are a Hulu with Live TV viewer, you are always FOMOing. You want to know whether there’s something better on TV right now, and you think channels are the best way to find out what that is.

So, lo and behold the feature that is going to make this possible on Hulu:

Live Guide.

So, what is it exactly?

* Live Guide is a next-generation experience that will help cord-cutters, traditional cable users, and everyone in between find what to watch as quickly as possible. It's slick, without any unnecessary details that would get in the way of your watching experience.?

How does it work?

* Launch Live Guide anytime while watching live TV by holding your phone vertically -- or hitting the exit fullscreen icon (which actually takes you into portrait player). ?
* Live Guide shows a list of all your recently watched channels. Scroll to the right on each of the channel rows to see what’s coming up. ??
* By default, the Live Guide shows your recently watched channels. But you can always select All Channels to see an A-Z list of all channels.?
* With just one click you’ll be able to record any program playing now or in the future?
* (Yes, it’s a TV guide. But way better.)?
* When you're ready to watch, tap your show choice and rotate your device horizontally to watch it full-screen.?

New: So, on this release, we brought you Live Guide, but we also redesigned the way you can look up on-demand content.

How do you get to it?

* Select any episode of on-demand show?
* Turn your phone vertically to see the guide with the next episodes of that show, content from My Stuff and recommended content. ?
* Turn it back horizontally to watch your program full-screen. ?

New: You were loud and clear on this one. You wanted better ways in which you could tell us what content you REALLY like (and which one you could care less). We made it happen with these two new features:

* Remove from Watch History: Remove items that “mistakenly” ended up on your profile’s Watch History (whether you went to sleep with the TV on and woke up knee-deep into a random season, or your partner was too lazy to switch to their profile and binged like there was no tomorrow). To get rid of shows that you don’t want to watch anymore, select the Remove icon on the Keep Watching Collection. You can also check out all your watching history by scrolling to the bottom of the Keep Watching collection and selecting All Watch History. Then, click on the three dots of every show that you want to remove from that hub.?

* Stop suggesting this: You can now improve the quality of in-app recommendations by down-voting shows that don’t apply to you. If you see suggestions in your lineup that you don’t like, tap on the Stop Suggesting button to make them go away forevah. Access this feature via the context menu on recommended collections (Lineup, News, TV, Movies, and Kids) on the Home screen.?

New: Hold your horses. We have ANOTHER update. And this is a big one for a lot of you. We brought back HDMI support! Use your iOS device to connect to an external display with an HDMI Lightning adapter. (Apple approved Lightning-to-HDMI adapters highly recommended).

New: And last but not least… the Chromecast controller is now your remote of the future! It looks better, feels better and does more for you.

Logging me off
qbksch on 5/24/2018
Keeps logging me off and it’s annoying
So irritating
Tei Nicole on 5/24/2018
I’m so annoyed with Hulu....for whatever reason my shows either freeze up or the talking goes quicker than the actual’s extremely irritating especially when I’m paying 40.00 a month!
New update, My Stuff section not right
Moviefan92 on 5/24/2018
First I love Hulu service. The great shows available and that there are current episodes is awesome. With this latest update, the screen doesn't automatically rotate to fit the screen like it did before. Now you can't even tilt it without or changing. I don't like that. The setting on the phone doesn't help.The other problem is My Stuff area had shows listed that I never saved or watch. And the ones I know I saved aren't listed. I like this section because it had where I left off last and I save my favorite shows here. I've left this feedback before and nothing has been done. Please fix!
DeeStreets on 5/24/2018
Months after uninstalling the app because of the new design I decided to retry and see if it’s issues had been resolved... and I still hate it. It’s hard to find what I’m looking for. The design is visually nice but clunky and difficult to operate.... considering the large amount of people who aren’t happy with it maybe listen to your customer base.
It’s meh
Donaldlover on 5/24/2018
There’s a lot of malfunctions going on in the app. Needs more fixing. It has potential to be a really amazing app but the negatives outweigh the positives /:
Lullybear on 5/24/2018
You have to log into the app every time. Hulu nobody wants to steal my Hulu!
Can’t use!
AriGold05 on 5/23/2018
While I love watching Hulu on my iPad, it seems the most recent update has it shutting down after a few seconds of playing content. After this is fixed I will give it more stars.
Worst update
Doditha on 5/23/2018
This new update is horrible not user friendly and has a lot of issues get the old version back up or I cancel my subscription and it seems like I’m not the only one with complaints.
Me374 on 5/23/2018
The app keeps telling me that it has connection problems so I can't watch anything. Yet all my other streaming apps are connecting fine. This is very annoying.
Brian C Wurtz on 5/23/2018
I cannot even use the app. It crashes immediately every time I try to open it. Horrible. Why am I paying for this?
chrome cast not working after update
GO4MJ on 5/23/2018
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.
Hate this update
Razorbackg38 on 5/23/2018
Hate the new update. Too many steps to watch something
Ehhhh5603 on 5/23/2018
I almost solely use the app to cast shows. In the most recent update the chromecast portion was changed and now there doesn’t seem to be a way to change the volume so instead I have to switch to my google home app. My app will also crash with no warning and I close and restart it and it crashes again. Even after the newest update. The only way that I’ve found to fix it is to restart my phone.
Background play?
RPxsniper on 5/23/2018
Was really upset that there no back ground play. I switched from Netflix and they have it to where you can click off the app and still just listen to the audio. Maybe I’m missing something on the app to enable it. If you could help with this it’d be an easy 5 stars for me
My god just fix it
Staggz22 on 5/23/2018
How do you not learn from all of the mistakes you’ve made?
Terrible update
123578908542247964 on 5/23/2018
Using chronecast on iOS. No volume. Subtitles on but won't show. What a mess.
App keeps signing me out
Kayla Quirk on 5/23/2018
This is the most annoying app ever. I only have it to watch a certain series, but once I’m finished I am going to unsubscribe! It logs me out every single time I close the app. ANNOYING!!!
Portrait playback finally!
Ace America on 5/23/2018
I have an iPad mounted on my treadmill and can’t turn it to watch landscape video. Now I can use Hulu while on my treadmill, thank you.
Doesn’t work
sk8rchic41123 on 5/23/2018
Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app multiple times, nothing will stream. Regularly has buffering issues when it does stream and will barely work. Other streaming apps are perfectly fine, so the problem clearly isn’t on my end. The only reason I still had Hulu was for Handmaid’s Tale, and now I can’t even watch that.
What is this update?
Jrgamble on 5/23/2018
You moved EVERYTHING around which is obviously the perfect thing to do all of us all while at the same time you can’t separate TV shows by season? LOVIN it. Please go back to the other one. I hate this one. hate it. k bye.
cmon hulu on 5/23/2018
I can no longer cast and it’s really annoying. I tried to delete and reinstall but it’s still not working. Cmon Hulu you have to much competition to mess up here. Currently using my back up Netflix
Fix the Forward and Rewind function
John12892 on 5/23/2018
Such an annoying feature. You are doing too much. If I accidentally touch the left side I go back 10 seconds. If I touch it twice I go back 20 seconds. I need to accidentally tap it 3 times just to be able to use the forward 30 sec button. So annoying. That isnt being functional. Its just annoying and frustrating when you are in a bad place with a bad signal. Its a quick fix. No reason not to do it.
About the fast forward button
joshism on 5/23/2018
Brooklyn Nine Nine’s theme lasts for 10 seconds. I always have to fast forward once and hit rewind twice just to skip it. It kind of ruins the binge watch. I do not know the rational for the fast forward button being 30 seconds. It could have easily been 10. But 30? I just don’t get it.
New UI is still awful
Birrr P. on 5/23/2018
Why did you change the user interface annnnnd still haven’t changed it back after all this time??? The app rating has sunk to a 2.2! I said I wasn’t going to renew my sub until it’s fixed. The content on Hulu is okay, but I can live without it. So far I have made it 6 or something months without it and I’m cool with it. I thought maybe the content would lure me back but the bad app keeps me away. I just sub and watch other apps now. No prob. I recently renewed my sub to see if it was still terrible UI and it is. I cancelled my renewal again, where as I used to just let it continue month to month even if I wasn’t watching. The app UI is just that bad and annoying. I thought for sure it would be changed back within a month. I don’t leave many reviews but I had to do this one. This has to be one of the biggest app update blunders of all time.
Very slow and does not work while traveling
Bchambers1234567890 on 5/23/2018
When I am home in the us the app is always very slow and now I am traveling abroad in Europe and it says that none of the videos are available at my location .... what's the point of having a mobile app if you can't use it while traveling?!. Boo ... I would give this app 0/5 stars if I could.
Terrible update
htn124 on 5/23/2018
The new update was terrible. I'M only giving 1 star because there is no option anything lower. My screen keeps turning green. I can hardly finish one episode of anything.
Working great
Lizgeer on 5/23/2018
It was not casting , now it is thank you for fixing it
HDMI support
Mac8337 on 5/23/2018
I love I can now connect my iOS to the tv yes thank you so much I love that I can do that again thank you Hulu!!!!
Better than Netflix
LilT36 on 5/23/2018
I love Hulu, has all my favorite shows and updates all episodes. I don’t like Ads but I can deal with them :) My complaint is having seasons to shows that start like halfway through the season. Why don’t you have the previous episodes of that season?
Fix the app!!!
Tetushkaizbrazilii on 5/23/2018
Oh my goodness !!! If you even TRY to touch the icon for a show or a movie it stops and you can’t continue it... it starts over INCLUDING the commercials you JUST watched. Doesn’t seem to be compatible with chrome cast . This last update was pretty bad.
dvjirsckuf on 5/23/2018
App keeps crashing!! Great when it works but sick of the constant crashing!
why do updates keep making the app worse?
bkvt9 on 5/23/2018
I think Hulu has completely forgotten about user experience. There was no functional improvements at all on the last update, and this most recent one, made it worse. Hulu needs to stop focusing on making the app look cooler, and think about ease of navigation, getting glitches out, and being more user friendly. It is possible to have a good balance between design and function, but function should never be comprised for design. The original app was much better than what it is now.
To help
Cool J Nation on 5/23/2018
It signs me out all the the time can you please fix this
The worst app
MackenzieS. on 5/23/2018
Freezes ALL THE TIME! Even when I exit out of the app and come back it freezes in the same spot over and over again. NETFLIX ALL THE WAY.
joenicole on 5/23/2018
The recent update did not make the app better it was perfectly fine before must rethink my subscription
The worst
kk7474837 on 5/23/2018
I’ve been trying to watch the same episode for the past few days. Yes. It takes that king to get through a 30 minute episode. I get through maybe 2 mins then I get a “connection error” and have to restart. Then when I did get reconnected I have to watch a commercial then the episode starts from the beginning. It never picks up where I left off even though it tells me to “resume episode”. So annoying. I never have issues with Netflix. Update: app still doesn’t work after the update. It constantly tells me I have a connection error then restarts the episode. It’s an endless loop! I’m basically paying to just watch commercials.
Camdude93 on 5/23/2018
I would use this app all day if I was able to download episodes. This is the only reason I use Netflix more. The ability to not use data and still watch my shows. I’m kind of surprised you have not added this yet...
Travis1987 on 5/23/2018
I am so incredibly annoyed by this app. It doesn’t work half the time. Often when I open it, it doesn’t show me as logged in. If you pause a video, good luck if you try to go back after a few minutes to get it to play. If Netflix or Amazon had the same shows, I would drop this service.
Bree1989****** on 5/23/2018
You finally brought back hdmi support and it WORKS!!! Looks like I’m keeping my acct
Fast forward rewind is meh now
JoxerFoxy on 5/23/2018
Could we go back to the 10 second increments for both fast forward and rewind please? Or at least make it a new feature to where we can change the amount of seconds it’ll do that ourselves?
Victorious Or Icarly
Lalalallalalalsbdjdv on 5/23/2018
Please Add Victourous and Icarly I Love those shows So much on a website it said you had it but you didn't but please add Icarly And Victorious PLEASE I WILL RATE THIS 5 STARS
Latest update is even worse
dela12345678 on 5/23/2018
I really didn’t think the app could get worse, but they managed it. Getting to the point that I’m going to have to cancel my Hulu because it’s so infuriating. Discovery is difficult; moving to the next episode requires way too many clicks; it logs me out every single day. This is the worst streaming video UI that I’ve experienced.
For the app, not the service
DaveIts1ne on 5/23/2018
I’m giving this a one star because the app is trash, it crashes everytime I use it. It crashes my google chrome cast, it crashes my phone, even my iPad. If I leave the app it crashes, if I skip forward it crashes. Fix it!
Looking promising
Z/3 on 5/23/2018
This new update is looking promising. I like the direction it's going. But there are some bugs to figure out. I currently can't watch my recorded stuff. Any of it. Just shows a blank screen with video controls. Don't have this problem on the Android version. Also, on the Android version you can skip the commercials without having to seek 2mins ahead. I'd like that on this version as well.
Its pretty good
Dee Account on 5/23/2018
I use it without ads and it’s pretty good I like this new update the fast forward function is really useful, my only problem is that they don’t have more shows and anime and when they do have an anime they should update the dub like they do the sub
Hulu is the worst EVER!
Edub456 on 5/23/2018
I have to constantly restart cause of connection issues that don’t ever happen on Netflix or Prime. Hulu is garbage. Don’t waste your money on getting sucked in to a show you can’t watch without restarting your device and router every 2 minutes.
Hulu’s awful UX team strikes again
Patrick Kramer on 5/23/2018
The recent update added a “feature” than plays videos in a screen with useless information and irrelevant recommendations instead of just going to full screen like a normal person would design, requiring a two more screen taps to get into that mode for every video you wish to watch. I wish they would get rid of these idiots and design an interface like Netflix or Youtube, both of which work well.
Doesn’t work!
Ohyeahohyeaaaahhhh on 5/23/2018
App doesn’t work keeps saying no internet connection. That’s weird because all my other apps including Netflix work just fine and have no problems with internet connection.
Today’s update is stupid!
CAPGod on 5/23/2018
Please get rid of this new format for mobile views. It’s inconvenient and worse then what YouTube had three years ago. A mini screen with recommendations under is pointless and annoying especially if you can’t shrink the video to continue browsing or if you can’t remove the recommended videos.
Worst user experience on earth
Missodessa on 5/23/2018
Whoever designed the UI layout for this app needs to be fired. It takes too many clicks to get to a shows page and watch the episode that I want. When watching a show after it’s over the next episode doesn’t play an episode for an entirely different show that I don’t even want to watch starts playing and then there is no way to Click the back button to get back to the shows episodes. The interface for this app is just so horrible I cannot see myself paying for a subscription I’ll just wait for somebody else to Upload episodes of the handmaids tale online. That’s really the only good show you guys have anyways.
