  • The download function:

    By Mason_Sikes
    It’s been Released, but every single download I’ve tried has stayed on the rotating gear, and not downloaded. My internet connection is fine, 200Mb/s download speeds, and nothing else occupying the network. It has to be Hulu.
  • Love Hulu but not the app!

    By Ca8605
    When I connect to my TV, I’ll select a show and it’ll start playing on my phone instead of the tv. The app crashes when I try to fast forward or rewind. It constantly forgets that it’s supposed to be playing on my TV, not my phone. It’s all rather annoying, especially the crashing.
  • Terrible App - keeps losing place

    By Unoriginal Bastard
    I don’t know what is going on with Hulu lately but, across all platforms, the listings in “My Stuff” don’t work correctly. Resuming a show from where you left off doesn’t work correctly - it just restarts. Then, when you finish watching the latest episode of show, it stays at the top of your My Stuff list telling you to watch the latest episode. Fix this already.
  • Can’t finish a movie/ show will load or freezes while watching them

    By proudgam
    My family has movie night on Saturday’s and it is really sad when you get to the last 10-5 minutes of the end of the movie and it freezes. We have tried to forward past the spot, still freezes. Try to rewind same thing. Every movie we have seen on Hulu we can not finish. Hulu, what have you done???? We can not watch certain T.V. Shows without the show freezing up. Some shows we can watch all the way through them but most of the shows we watch just freezes up or they stop and finish loading. We pay for commercial free ads, and this is the problems we are having. Come on guys please fix the problem if not then we might have to go get a different service. Does anyone else have this problem? Please Hulu fix the problem!
  • Weak or No Connection

    By Patrishalexa

  • can’t access anything

    By Aumickfamily
    I love Hulu and use Hulu live instead of a cable subscription... that being said, this app is rough. As a college student who not only goes between school and home, but also travels a lot, it is near-impossible for me to use the Hulu app because it asks that I log in at least once every thirty days on my “home network”- not even sure which they’re counting as home. I’d be fine with it if there were some sort of override from the computer account, but there literally is none. There is absolutely no point to having this app on my phone. I won’t use it when I’m at home or school, because I have access to smart TVs at both. I only want it when I’m traveling, and that’s when I can’t use it :/
  • just one thing

    if your gonna ruin tv why not try to add as many episodes on all of the shows like steven universe i have been needing to finish it but all i get to see is steven and his friends being taken to home-world and it stops there
  • Good but put a new season of Steven universe

    By itzmescorpion
    I watched this show and finished in season 4 and I need to finish it please put the last seasons
  • Fix the dates

    By pokémon fan 19
    Can you fix the new episode dates to happen tomorrow please???.
  • Movies

    By Nottoxic414
    Can’t watch any movies for some reason. It just happened today
  • Restart

    By applereview92
    Anytime the app times out and goes to a screensaver the show you were watching starts from 00:00. It’s a major inconvenience and incredibly annoying! It’s also annoying to navigate the web browser homepage. Overall NOT user friendly.
  • awsome

    By jonathan mcdon
    it has a lot of movies to choose from
  • Way too many ads

    By N.est
    It has too many ads for a streaming service, and they’re kind too, sometimes a minute or more and much too frequent. I think I’ll just start watching on online sites instead.
  • Edit

    By DannySanchez123
    When you exit the app, what’s playing keeps playing. It needs fixing.
  • After the IOS Update, Total Junk

    By Brazill
    On both my iPhone X and AppleTV, the app has significant issues after the most recent IOS update. After the update I noticed that the Hulu app logo was changed to black and green, and I thought it looked great. That was the only positive update with update though. Everything else is junk now. On my iPhone X, while the app is open, it prevents me from closing the app or moving to another app. I’ve had to do a hard reset on my device twice now to get out of the app. On AppleTV, while the app is on Live TV, the app from time to time continues to play whatever I’m watching but if I try to change the channel, turn on subtitles, pause, or whatever else using the remote, I can’t do it. The only thing I can do is get out of the app or close it. The only way to get it working again is to close the app and then open it again. I’ve deleted the app from my iPhone. We still use it for Live TV on our AppleTV because we don’t have cable. We’re getting to the point where we’re considering canceling our $45/month subscription and switching to Sling or some other alternative that actually works without issue.
  • Greedy

    By qwertfsajvbdosoutn08
    Y'all really took off samurai champloo and family guy off the regular $11.99 plan. Y'all greedy as hell now, I'm not paying $45.00 for the "better plan". I don't support you guys anymore....
  • It’s good. Could be better.

    By Death to Smoochy
    The guide is not working correctly. Super buggy. Does anyone actually read these? Please make it more stable for tvOS. Crashes and freezes.

  • Poor service

    By sunny rosd
    Hulu Smart phone app and web app are horrible. There was a problem using a gift card as well as paying using Apple Pay. Apps are not user friendly & tech service mostly deflects & doesn’t give any useful tech advice or take responsibility for the error messages or the usual tech problems. Mostly they obfuscated & blamed Apple so they get a “F”.
  • Ads

    By Christianity First
    The Ads are annoying! I have the no Ads plan but the us truly misleading. When you record a show, why must I waste my precious time to watch some crappy Ad? My time is valuable and I do not like when anyone takes that for granted!
  • Having playback issues

    By Mikey0500
    I have a iPhone XR through T-Mobile and I am always having playback issues even though I have great service where I am at always says we are having trouble connecting please reset your phone can you please do something about this and fix this issue
  • Good and bad

    By Lil' Li11y
    I love Hulu but there are a few shows that just suddenly end, like Steven Universe, it gets to the episode where Steven gets kidnapped by Aqaumarine then it ends, I know there is more episodes than that, in some adds it’s says that you stopped the sudden endings, WELL I GUESS NOT. Please fix that because I love Steven Universe.
  • There’s a problem

    By Shanpelle B
    I’ve been using Hulu a lot lately, and now the play back isn’t working and it won’t load on my laptop either. Other than this one problem, Hulu is great.
  • Hulu Has Ads

    By 6.23.18
    Hulu has ads. Ads are terrible. Hulu is terrible. Not worth spending your money.
  • I have a problem

    By miserable muser
    When I try to watch your new show “Dollface” it doesn’t work when i click on it after searching. However, all if the other shows were working just fine.
  • Title details not loading on iOS Devices

    By Lemurbeans
    Hey Hulu Dev Team, Long time watcher, first time reviewer. Been a big fan of Hulu and the many iterations of the UX changes (some more than others). Unfortunately, something happened in the last few updates where after searching and selecting certain popular titles on iOS devices (iPhone X, iPad Pro), the details screen would never fully load - making them unplayable. Selecting other titles would load properly, but time and again - this would keep happening. Spoke with your non-technical support team at length and the script they where provided was the equivalent of burning sage and sending positive energy into the universe. Even after going through the litany of ineffectual remedial (just turn it off and on real quick), trouble shooting - we were no where near an actual root cause. As technical people, can you please address with better solutions than aligning my iPad’s chakras to the rising sun?
  • Great Content, Live TV!

    By Brandon Partin
    Hulu has great original content as well as other streaming content and I was happy to find out they also offered a plan to stream Live TV and you can also record shows like a DVR! Great service and multiple options!
  • The most recent update ruined the app

    By Rockyocky
    I would be able to watch my shows whenever and wherever either on WiFi or cellular. For some reason now, whenever I tap the show that I want to watch, it takes me to a blank loading screen that doesn’t load. I can’t watch anything on the app anymore, I have to hop on my laptop. The app used to be perfectly functional, but they seriously dropped the ball.
  • Out of sync issues

    By J544
    Out of sync on most of the shows I want to watch and ADS. Why am I paying almost $60 and still have ADS!? Then you add new features and still laggy with more ADS. Very aggravating and a waste of my money if the app doesn’t shape up I’m DONE with this nonsense.
  • Trouble with Hulu

    By mrscorral_20
    I’ve had this app for about 2 years now an out of no where it doesn’t play any of my shows. I’ve updated , restarted everything, an still nothing ; pretty much all out of ideas on how to fix it .
  • It’s amazing but could use one special feature

    By Survivor32577
    I’ve been using Hulu for a while now and I just started watching Tokyo Ghoul. I really like it and Hulu it’s self but I think it could use a “skip intro” button like the one on Netflix. Personally I think it would make binge watching shows 1000 time easier. Besides that it’s and amazing app and I would recommend it to all my friends who don’t have it and want more titles than there are on Netflix.
  • Very frustrating glitch with ads

    By Alice Valkyrie
    First of all, if i wasn’t essentially getting Hulu for free due to my Spotify subscription plan and still wanted Hulu, I would be paying for the no-ads version. As it is, I’m suffering through them. On the app on Roku, an issue with ads replaying has only happened once or twice if I hit rewind on a show near an ad break, but on iOS it’s so much worse. It’s easy, due to the interface of the app to accidentally exit out of a show, and if you do so shortly after a commercial break-you will likely be treated to ANOTHER 80 seconds of (usually) the same ads you just watched (regardless of if you hit rewind or not). I just had this happen twice in a row on the same ad break and it’s ridiculous. Fix it please. I’m here to watch shows, not ads three times in a row. 😡 Edit: I have now experienced the same issue on the Roku app. It’s highly frustrating. Even with cable I don’t have to watch ALL the commercials again if I rewind too far. And it never loses my place and forces me to watch commercials I’ve already watched again. The app should at least give us “credit” for the commercials we’ve already watched during the same viewing session (I personally think it should give us credit on repeated viewing as well, since I can fast-forward over commercials if I’ve recorded something on my DVR). TL;DR: Some great content, but the ads are ridiculously annoying.

  • Add The Walking Dead Please

    By GioBihh18
    Hello Hulu I just wanted to say can you please add the walking dead. Fear the walking dead is not the same I hate those characters I miss the old characters even though in the new seasons there all pretty much gone I just like the other show much better please take my saying into consideration
  • Newest update causes more problems

    By lpr2012
    Update: New regressions. Do you all need help testing basics? - If you stop a show mid-stride, coming back to the interface shows the “resume” button and a progress bar at the right place. Tapping resume starts the show over. Happens about 90% of the time on TV and iPhone/iPad apps. The update again causes more usability bugs. - Links from the TV app no longer work again, and watch percentage is no longer updated back. Happens about 20% of the time. - Resume function no longer works. Stopping a video and resuming it later on Apple TV causes the video to start at the beginning about 50% of the time. Seems to work fine on iPad and iPhone. - App crashes when video is paused and the screen saver comes on or the screen locks. Happens about 30% of the time.
  • Fix your app

    Why am I paying for this when you still play commercial’s? PS. Way to pay for your ratings because you know you’re trash
  • Download feature has potential?

    By Annethomp1123
    Love that some shows can now be downloaded for offline viewing. Hating that most of the time the downloads won’t play and I have to try and download them again. Also customer service had me log out and log back in again, and when I did, all of the shows I had downloaded were gone. Weird. I hope they get the kinks worked out.
  • Left behind... Thanks, hulu

    By Linda Weidemann
    The new app won't install on my iPad, and Hulu won't allow the version on my iPad to run. Hulu also won't let the website work in a browser on my device because there's an app. It's an endless loop of frustration... No "This Is Us" for Linda! :(
  • Please fix

    By AmAnDa;424!
    Why when I want to restart a series as background noise while doing chores do I have to start each episode over individually?! Can you please fix so we can reset it or something?
  • Vizio Smart Tv’s hate Hulu?

    By MC3King55
    I have owned a Vizio Smart Tv for almost a year now. Recently with the most recent update on the Hulu app Everything I watch on Hulu now lags and frame drops. I tried casting through the app in my phone as well and the same thing happens. This needs to be fixed ASAP.

    By gm the great
    The fact that you can now download for offline use makes Hulu the best.

    By queenbunny91
    I love this app a lot it is easy to catch up on shows and stuff but there are a lot of glitches. I wish this app took less time on the design and more time trying to fix the glitches. 😀
