    the ONE PROBLEM i see w hulu is that there is no “Skip Intro” button. With this addition, there would be no issues w hulu.
  • Bad app

    By brebankz
    Can’t watch a full episode of anything. App keeps crashing with error connection message
  • OMG! I have to start over?!?! STILL?!?!

    By ndjohnston
    Why do I have to start each episode from the beginning every time I get some error message that tells me to restart either my device or my modem?? There is nothing wrong with either!! Geez...can your developers not figure out how to fix this? NETFIX does not have this issue... I’ve watched the same ad over and over and only seen the show I want to watch for about 15 seconds!! If I just wanted to watch ads, I would watch regular, boring TV. I get you have to have ads to support the system, but seriously?! Your developers missed the mark somewhere 😡 **UPDATE** YOU JUST LOST A STAR HULU!! So I upgraded to the NO AD version thinking this would allow me to watch more of the shows I want to see (trying to beat the restart & Ad issue, right?...NO!!) STILL getting that stupid error message that tells me to power down MY device AND modem and then start all over!! HOLY COW!!! 😡😡 Is someone at HULU going to prorate the $$ I’ve spent versus the amount of time I’ve spent just TRYING to watch a show? OR REFUND the money I’m spending WASTING MY TIME?!?! I could have gotten in my truck, driven to a REDBOX, rented a couple of movies, driven home and STILL saved money...AND TIME!! I’ve gotten ZERO response from HULU on this issue and from reading other reviews, I’m not the only UPSET, FRUSTRATED CUSTOMER! HULU - take some of the money you’re getting and hire someone that can FIX THIS ISSUE!!! hard can it be?!?! UPDATE YOUR SERVICE ALREADY OR I’M GOING TO BE A FORMER HULU FAN!!
  • Good but...

    By Hannah_122_
    I love the variety of shows on here but there are a few things that I have a problem with The ads I am paying to watch tv and movies on this network and you are still making me watch ads?? I don’t understand what the advertising is all about I don’t get that on YouTube TV, Netflix, or Amazon, but Hulu continues to force ads and it drives me crazy. If I find that Hulu has a show that another network has, I’ll switch to the other one just to avoid the several ads I have to watch for something that I bought and am paying for Recently watched When I go back to watch a show that I recently watched, it is never shown in the correct order. I would prefer it to be in the order of most recently watched to least recent but it appears to be in the order that Hulu prefers, not the user. All I want to do is go back and start back where I left off but then I have to slide all the way through to the bottom of my recently watched tab just to watch again. Sometimes it won’t even show up there, so I have to go back and search for the show. This is easier to do on the phone (but still inconvenient) but on a TV searching for a show is just time consuming. This is bigger deal than it would seem, especially since Hulu’s competitors seem to have no issue with these types of things. Swiping out of a show When I’m watching something on my phone, accidentally swiping the show away is so frustrating. Swiping down allows you to leave the video for those of you who don’t know. And while it seems easy and quick, I’d prefer to just click the X button or possibly a back arrow in the corner when I tap the screen to pause/rewind/fast forward/etc.. Accidentally swiping out happens to me a lot and it’s frustrating because I have to wait for it to load the content again and so it isn’t as easy and nice as you’d think it is. Fast forwarding I also don’t like how you can either rewind 10 seconds, or fast forward 30. It just seems like it wasn’t completely thought through. It just seems like it would make more sense if it was 10 seconds both ways. This way, if I accidentally rewound 20 seconds, I can correct it back to 10. I understand that 30 seconds allows you to move through the show quicker to catch up to a part, but that’s what the sliding part is for at the bottom of the screen. It feels like this wasn’t totally thought through properly. While I love using Hulu and they offer lots of shows that it’s competitors do not, they seem to lack easiness and logic when it comes to user experience. I feel that if these issues were looked over and fixed, then I would enjoy using Hulu more and would pick it over other things like Netflix, YouTube TV, or Amazon.
  • Crashes and hanging sessions

    By Abuse of Like
    I don’t typically write in, but I’m driven to distraction with the server connection issues. I faithfully reset my modem and router and devices, cleared history etc etc and I can’t get through an episode without a crash part way through. I do not know if it is server issues or issues with the internet carrier, but I pay a premium for this service — however not much longer without resolution. Thank you for attention to this issue.
  • FIX YOUR APP!!!!!!!!!

    By frustrated859
    I can’t get through 10 minutes of anything without it crashing and saying it’s on my end. Funny that this is the only app not working though...

  • Hulu no ad

    By khchkckcit
    Hulu has a somewhat good selection of things to watch but very limited and their prices are ridiculous. Right now they’re charging me $60 a month (I’m paying for the live tv + no ad). Someone tell me why I’m still getting ads?! I looked it up and Hulu can only cover no ad on some movies and episodes. Which is stupid cuz your charging me like $7 a month for no ads. If you just get regular Hulu your limited on the stuff you can watch and it’s not very good selection. Take my advice and don’t get Hulu it’s a waste of your money. All they do is take your money and not give you what your paying for. Another thing this review is stupid. There telling me to be honest and write what I think but won’t let me post it cuz I have to put a nickname next to my review and once I do, all it says is this nickname is taken, try again.

    By chgvbg
    I’m so sick have to watch 90 second commercials for every 6 mins of the show your watching.
  • Crashes

    By Marc.brown
    I’ve had more crashes in 2 weeks with Hulu than I have in 10 years with Netflix. This is no exaggeration. It’s horrendous.
  • Wt...

    By Khdsjskb
    Not sure if it was the update or what, but the constant “errors” and “connection problems” are total bs. Not really sure what I’m paying for at this point. Love the shows, but doesn’t matter much when I can’t watch more than 30 seconds or so at a time, if anything at all.
  • Bad. Bad. Bad.

    By JudyJetsonHooka
    This UI is bad and not user friendly. I hate it! Make it more like your competitors.
  • Constant errors

    By MuSiC LuVeRz 1123
    The iPhone app for this service is constantly giving me an error message "P-DEV320" every other episode I watch. It doesn't matter how many times I close the app out completely or how many times I've restarted my phone (5 in the last hour and a half) it keeps happening. Really disappointing for how much I'm spending for the service. Might be better off sticking with Netflix and Amazon prime. So frustrating.
  • Unable to binge

    By Brianaj1990
    I am unable to binge watch shows. After about the third episode it says error connection! Please fix!!!!!!!!!!!
  • False Errors!!!!!

    By Jamaltoolive
    FIX YOUR APP! I cannot stress this enough every time I get on, it gives me this error with playing my selection which is false my connection is always good and even if it does let you play it’s only good for about 2-3 episodes before it happens again and reloading the app doesn’t help because it occurs again. I’ve been very tolerant for weeks now this is really aggravating me and I’m not the only one who has this problem
  • Loud commercials!

    By Coreabstraction
    Why are the commercials so loud? I thought that was a cable tv move. The commercials are so loud it scares my kids.
  • Too many ads

    By Nensndakjcnws
    So many ads. Netflix or Amazon doesn't show ads, let alone 10 ads ninety seconds long per episode. Not renewing after this month
  • Fine quality, but AWFUL service

    By mfernandagg
    Shows crash regularly with a “connection error on your part,” even though connection is fine. Then one has to restart phone and launch app again and even then the app still might not work. SO FRUSTRATING.
  • I really like hulu...

    By Keishie
    I really like hulu but it’s been giving me a hard time lately. I’m unable to watch certain shows, it says there’s no internet connection when my wifi is perfectly fine. I’ve uninstalled the app, restarted my phone and everything. I would love if they’d fix the app.
  • Doesn’t keep up

    By Dddddddd.99999
    It doesn’t keep up when new seasons when they come out on people’s favorite shows like my friends, family and mine
  • No more adds

    By Theflashvloggamerxx
    I like Hulu it’s just one thing is the adds can you guys please get rid of them please if there are adds on Hulu how can I be able to watch all of my favorite shows with adds just makes me very sick just seeing adds from your shows to watch please get rid of them please I’m sorry for kind being mean it’s making me upset
  • DCI Banks and Whitechapel

  • Hulu iPhone 6 Plus

    By ). not happy
    Just updated the software 6/13/19. The phone locks up and will not work. Sticks on the home screen with a message about new search features.
  • Connection error!?!

    By They're all taken....
    Getting tired of paying for my subscription but not being able to watch it on my iPhone!! Please fix or I will be cancelling!!
  • pls update attack on titan

    By -maybeastro
    Pls update attack on titan i want sub! Tell me when your gonna add (sub) this app is very good also
  • I like it but there are issues

    By Wackado-be
    I have a really annoying issue besides the fact that after a few episodes of tv shows it does say there’s a connection issue on my side. Which is not true. And I see there are others with the same issue. But my biggest issue is that I keep getting subtitles on every movie and tv show I watch. Even though I Tuen subtitles off the still come up and I have to keep shutting them off. This is super annoying! When are you going to fix these issues? On the bright side I do like the selection of movies and shows you have.
  • What is going on?!

    By 13lzamar
    I’ve been trying and trying to get an answer out of someone, literally anyone, about what the heck is going on with my “connection error”. First off, I don’t frickin have one. I have contacted both my internet provider and my cellular provider. Both say my connection (download speed and latency speed ) is completely fine. Well within the range of streaming high quality videos. But Hulu doesn’t seem to work on any front for me. It will only let me watch some shows, other shows it’s will buffer and tell me I have an issue with connection. No one from Hulu has given me an answer, they’ve just told me that other people are experiencing it as well and that was it. They never once said if anything was being done about it. Or if I can do something else to help myself. I NEED HELP. I don’t want to cancel my subscription but if I can’t use the service provided, why would I keep it?
  • If you can use it it’s nice

    By ali315118
    The past week, NONSTOP, everytime I am in the middle of watching a show Hulu has a time out error and it says the video I’m trying to watch cannot be loaded. EVERY SINGLE TIME. I’ve tried updating my phone, uninstalling and reinstalling Hulu, connecting to WiFi, everything. Still get the error. Almost pointless for me to use. Netflix gives me zero problems.
  • Commercials keep replaying

    By Simba mate
    Ads keep starting over once they end and I have to keep reopening the app just to watch the shows.
  • Are you serious ??? 🤬

    By Testwick
    5 to 6 commercial breaks every 5 minutes in a 30 minute animated film. Subscription cancelled. Consumerism garbage. Then the ignorant masses wonder why useless companies that offer no solutions to our real problems thrive, millions in profits and the systems we need to survive, health care, justice etc struggle to even function.

  • When do new episodes come out?

    By Davie Robbie
    I find it very difficult to know when new episodes of my shows come out. There seems to be no indication of when these episodes would be available. It would certainly enhance my experience using the app.
  • Not supported over HDMI, r u serious?

    By The Last Nicky
    This is crap, I paid for the expensive Apple hdmi adapter, and can’t use it to play Hulu on my TV with it. So done....
  • Improvable

    By SixhavslfbkcjsvalhskBvl
    Could be better if it would continue to play in the background when I switch apps Also very annoying that when you want to change your subscription it says you have to go through your browser, and then when you try to change it in the browser it says you have to call a different number 🙄 Could be very simple. Needs more variety.
  • I like it but..

    By Reindeerlover4
    Hulu is a great app but I just feel like it has too many ads.I watch a lot of anime Movies and episodes. there’s just too many ads on there It makes watching Hulu kind of boring and I just think that if they were less ads then I would enjoy it more and maybe some other people who like watching anime like me will enjoy it more too.
  • Developed by monkeys

    By Kitkat ________23
    Seriously though it’s soooo glitchy. Constant buffering and loading issues and no I don’t have this problem with other streaming apps. Oh and captions always pop up even though I have them off. Coded by Sudanese monkeys for sure.
  • Great shows, BUT

    By JosieEndl
    I love the available shows that are on here that aren’t on any of the others, BUT I have called several times in the past about one particular issue. It keeps telling me of a connection error. I follow the instructions, but it never works. I try for hours sometimes days to watch something on here. It is very frustrating to subscribe to something I can very rarely use!
  • Error codes

    By PiGlEt_20117
    Please please please fix whatever is causing the constant error codes 😭
  • The worst in league

    By Vulgar demos
    Really cumbersome navigation. They claim to have a large library. But Super inefficient to figure out what’s available when you can only see one show at a time. Also really random curated categories that have no appeal to me. No subtitles for English dialogue in foreign shows. Major accessibility issue that hasn’t been addressed in years. It really doesn’t matter what they’re paying to show me because their apps are so, so bad. Always end up closing and going to a competitor. Simply the worst. I miss Hulu circa like 10 years ago. I wish Netflix bought their library so I don’t have to deal with this app.
  • Bad quality

    By fmlthesenicknames
    Keeps bugging and saying cannot play video please fix bug
  • Don’t get it.. Not Good

    By refundmecrystal
    Second week of having Hulu, since I got it I have been having bad connection problems and it takes long to load every time. Very annoying!!! I can see why others like Netflix better. I may be canceling soon!!
  • How many times do we have to ask “why did they change what wasn’t broken”?

    By fjsiffsefse
    What used to be 2 taps - looking at recently added movies - is now 6 and a lot of unnecessary scrolling.
  • Hulu is not international

    By caribbeanbabydoll
    I just renewed my subscription to hulu, travel to another country for vacation, tried to watch my favorite show, only to find out that hulu is only us and puerto rico based. Thats too bad.
  • terrible

    By Gabriella_19
    Idk what the problem is but for some reason every time i try and watch something it says connection error when there’s nothing wrong with it and i can’t watch one single movie you need to fix this asap
  • From Great to Bad

    By Greg Hull
    I wrote several 5 star reviews in the past about how Hulu Live was performing flawlessly on both our Apple TV devices. Welp, things have changed considerably since then. While watching Games 5 & 6 of the NBA Finals this week, the local ABC channel crashed in the beginning of the 4th quarter on both games. The stream would last about 5 seconds then freeze or jump backwards. It was unwatchable. So unwatchable I actually canceled the Hulu service and switched to another provider so I could watch last night’s Game 6.
  • It’s saying there’s something wrong with my internet

    By Majshbehajsjdndjalal
    It won’t let me log in, it keeps on saying that there’s a problem with my internet or something. I can’t even watch my favorite shows- it’s infuriating.
  • Terrible App

    By KTink0701
    By far the worst App on my phone. Constant bug issues. I never write reviews but I’ve written 3 so far because regardless of the updates the app still does not function well.
  • Your app is still broken

    By Dfser
    Your app is still broken
  • Fix the bug

    By Kjc 77
    Big issue with volume control and sound level. If you receive any kind of messages while the app is on volume goes down to the point so low that you can no longer hear things Fix it!
