  • Grayed out? Nov 24, 2020

    By RMF 2012
    I like this app a lot. A show I’ve been meaning to rewatch is on it and has all seasons. There’s only a few things I question, and first, is that sometimes it lags and when it comes back the subtitles are on. When I go to the cog button to turn them off, it tells me that they’re not on, that they’re default subtitles and I can’t turn them off. It says “not available” in grayed out font and the button isn’t even green like “on”, yet they are on and I don’t know how to turn them off when everything is grayed out. Normally I don’t have a problem with captions, but for watching on my iPhone, they’re really distracting. Only thing I can do is exit and swipe out of the app completely and wait a bit before opening it back up. Another thing I don’t get is when I turn my phone sideways, in order to pause my show, I have to turn my phone so it’s vertical again bc the ⏪▶️⏩ buttons don’t work when my phone is horizontal, which is strange. I can’t pause or play it, or go back or forward with my phone sideways. I have to put my phone back upright and then pause/play/ffw or rewind it. But other than that it’s a great app, and I’m happy I can rewatch my show.

    I'm hoping the latest update fixes the tremendous amount of battery drain and overheating of my pixel 4 XL. I started a movie at 100% last night, and the end of the movie 2 hours later, my pixel was burning hot with 28% left. My pixel is BRAND new, only 1 week old, and NOTHING else was running, just hulu through chromecast. No other streaming service does this (and I have them all, NF, D+, HBOMax, showtime, etc), only hulu causes this massive battery drain and overheating.

    This app sucks because it does not allow picture-in-picture on android. I do not have time to be watching TV on my phone the whole time! I need to be able to multitask and get other stuff done. Amazon Prime is better and more time efficient for me.

    The shows are good, I'm loving the Handmaid's Tale. I am so sick and tired or the constant ads. The moment something interesting happens, I have to watch another of the same 80 seconds about the same inane products. I'd rather pay more monthly, or have 3 minutes in one block of ads right at the beginning of an episode. Edit: Also, several foreign language tv (esp anime) have "sub" options in Japanese, but no english subtitles. Don't use subtitled in the title, if they aren't subtitled!

    Recently got the no ad subscription free 1 month trial, with plans to eventually link it to my spotify bundle at the end of the trial. The show variety is good but the app has some shortcomings. My primary issue is that the app constantly buffers in the middle of the show. Oftentimes, the video while stop while the audio is still playing. I wouldn't mind if it was something that happened occasionally, but it seems to happen in every single episode.

    Pretty damn bad. It is CONSTANTLY freezing, and having to be re-started. Then, on top of that, they have raised my fee 3 times in the year I've had them!!! I started out paying for Hulu LIVE, which cost more and has more ads then the $12 version. Started off at $42 a month. Now, within a year a 2 more price increases, I'm paying almost $70 a month. If you can find a better app, DEFINITELY GO FOR IT!!! These people are thieves, and their support is GARBAGE!!!

  • Poor Convenience? Jan 7, 2021

    By Gingeraide
    I binge a lot of the shows I watch, and I pay to have no commercials, and yet there’s so many annoying bugs that really make it hard to conveniently use this app, the most prevalent one being that there used to be a widget that would allow you to watch your show as you scrolled/used other apps in your phone, and then suddenly it just disappeared? Without an update, just stopped being able to do that. Really irritating, yet I find that if I have my phone connected to my aux in my car and I pull up the gps while leaving the show running, the audio will continue to play soooo??? Another HORRIBLY ANNOYING thing is when the next episode automatically plays, it will just REPLAY THE SAME EPISODE I WAS JUST WATCHING. And more than half the time, if you press ‘next episode’, it will replay the same episode again anyways. Sometimes the next episode button isn’t there, and I have to restart the app, then go into the series details, scroll to the episode I was on and click the next one manually. This isn’t a rare occurrence, it’s every other episode. Please fix this, I’m going to stop paying so much per month if these simple conveniences aren’t addressed 😞

  • Make it easier to switch plans! Oct 28, 2019

    By wildbellelover
    as a new user i of course decided to go with the cheaper plan to “try it out”. i haven’t even gotten thru the first episode of the show i was dying to watch and i’m already so over all of these ads! the option to upgrade isn’t even on the app.. i had to go log in on the web which again requires way more clicks than necessary.. although after reading reviews i guess it’s a good thing it’s not so easy because apparently you have to wait until your current subscription is cancelled which completes a month later!??? OMG! you’d think you would want to make your new subscribers experience the best.. again you should make it easier to upgrade or start everyone out with the BEST plan first.. and then give them the option to switch once the free trial ends.. just saying.. i don’t plan to cancel right away.. i guess i’ll leave it on during the free trial and use the app if i’m that desperate to watch an episode i’m willing to sit thru the same ads over and over every few minutes while trying to get thru an episode. best believe my subscription will be cancelled as soon as the trial is up! so disappointing! ugh!

    Aweful service. Over priced. They will sell you a lie called add free. Watching live TV is beyond frustrating. Selection almost exactly what you can get anywhere. Hulu has not come close to delivering on what they charge for. Even the terrible Comcast had better selections for price! Edit update: Even worse now live streaming won't work properly on any device. Over charged and lied to... I will never use Hulu again. This month can't end soon enough.

    Perfect....has a lot of anime shows, live shows, and a bunch of other content with its lowest tier. I've never had any issues with the app. Don't listen to people complaining about commercials. The longest ad duration is 89 seconds....whoopdy do (crybabies). In my opinion Hulu is way better than Netflix.

  • Need to make it more compatible with iPhone X Dec 16, 2017

    By wen_d_ta
    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!

  • Not showing watched Nov 25, 2018

    By Michellepizzalover
    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.

  • Giving 5 because many fixes have been done Sep 21, 2018

    By Fantasticallyella
    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.

  • Five stars EXCEPT Sep 25, 2018

    By 👍🏼💪🏼👌🏼
    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.

  • Brand new customer Apr 20, 2020

    By Great Speller
    Omg, not political ads! I am a brand-new customer. I took advantage of the $0.99 offer for a year. So far I am quite happy with the service except for one thing. I don’t have a problem with the commercials since I knew it would happen due to the offer price. What I don’t like is the same commercials over and over again. It seems like when watching a program with several episodes, there is a repetition of ads which is, quite honestly, not going to get me out there for those products. There are a few older dramas (and probably sitcoms that aren’t already in syndication) that I would like to watch, namely “Cold Case,” “Boston Public,” “Falcon Crest,” and “Picket Fences.” I’m sure that there are more, but I cannot come up with them at this time. I’ll keep watching. The old shows are usually much better than the reality shows like the Kardashians and Real Housewives that are on now.

    I love this app, it's perfect for streaming all of the advertisements I know and love. I'm not very intelligent, and therefore am incapable of grasping many different products being advertised. Which is why it comforts me to see the same ad for the same product multiple times in one viewing session. However, I'm removing a star for the tendency of this app to interrupt my advertisements with shows. These "shows" are a distraction and a nuisance, please hulu, just dispense with them altogether.

  • Amazing App Aug 28, 2020

    By Cocolattebanana
    I find this an amazing app and do not understand why there are so many bad reviews. There are tons of shows to watch of many different genres Cartoons, Dramas, Action, Comedy and so much more. I’m sorry if you didn’t choose the right plan. There have been no troubles for me except one thing for kids I find it annoying that you can’t select a age until 13 my 10 year old can only watch shows for little kids and has been begging me to let her have TV-14 but that has inappropriate content for her. So please please make you be able to do different age ratings for kids under 13 such as TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, and TV-PG. I find this a problem because my daughter can only watch kid shows. I also caught my 4 year old watching sailor moon and I am positive this is not age appropriate for her. PLEASE CHANGE THIS.

  • SO MANY GLITCHES! May 22, 2020

    By 🌸❤️❤️🌸❤️❤️🌸
    Great app, but there are a lot of bugs that need to me fixed. First off, the skip, I tried to resume an episode I was watching and every time I would go to skip back to where I was, it would restart the episode. Also, the ad problem needs to be fixed, it keeps playing the ads, then replaying them. Like it would have the ads run as normal, then replay them for no reason. Also there needs to be an easier way to change plans. Skipping is rather annoying as well because every time I skip forward or back it sends me back to where I was! It has even started to black out my screen at certain points in movies and TV shows. I’m very upset about this because all I want to do is watch a show, and it won’t let me! Please fix all of this!

  • Choose Wisely Sep 13, 2019

    By AidanMcGrath
    Whatever you do, pick the plan you want from the get go. Do not try to change your plan after the fact. It doesn’t work. You will have to cancel your subscription and wait for its termination date - one month later. I didn’t think I minded having ads and then it hits you with these gross 70 second ads. I can’t watch those every 5-8 minutes when I’m just trying to enjoy a show. So I tried to change to the Hulu(no ads) plan but it won’t let me until my old plan terminates. So I tried making another account. Didn’t work; it recognizes that you have another account and says, “would you like to sign in with this one?”. When you hit no it doesn’t go through with the new account and if you hit yes, you weren’t making a new account to begin with. I’ve had this app for maybe an hour and already a huge turnoff. 3/5: the video quality was good in the 5-8 minutes I could stand watching. But most everything else is maddening.

  • Never ending issues Apr 1, 2020

    By _tinydancer_
    You would think for app with this many subscribers and this high of a subscription rate (for the live tv) the least they could do is make an app that works. The app has near constant glitches. It often plays the audio of one show while a completely different show plays. It never remembers where you left off in a show so you have to watch the same commercial breaks again. It freezes, it crashes. It has the worst UI. You can’t set shows that you’ve recorded to automatically delete after you’ve watched them so you have to do it manually. Even when you record shows, you can only fast forward through the commercials maybe 25% of the time. One show I record never records the whole episode. Even after I delete it, it stays this way. Then miraculously, after a week, the full episode appears. Seems like this app is perpetually a year behind it’s competitors. I really hope someone reads this and looks into all these perpetual issues, but I’m not holding my breath. Get it together. You owe your paying customers more than this.

  • Commercials and streaming service Nov 21, 2020

    By bakachibichan1
    So, for the commercials I don’t mind watching. However if you want to rewind to watch a scene before the commercials break you have to watch 3 minutes of commercials (1 min when you first pass through, 1 min when you rewind, and another minute when you pass through again). It’s kind of annoying that it does that and doesn’t save that you already watched the ad breaks like other video streaming platforms. In addition, I get a lot of problems with the streaming service. Like the episodes won’t load and it tells me to come back later or refresh. I know it’s not my internet because we just upgraded it to a faster speed and out of all the apps on my phone and TV this is the only one that needs to be refreshed. Lastly, episodes. Episodes on phones can only be watched two at a time. Then you have to go to the series list for the next two episodes, which is inconvenient because of the loading issue mentioned above. I love the shows on this app, but really not worth all the bugs and issues.

  • Could be way better Mar 28, 2020

    By Poshafied!
    At first I loved this app then after using it for a awhile I found all the glitches. The time it takes to download a movie and all the buffering makes it difficult to even watch a show or a movie. I pay the extra for no commercials but by the time it buffers 25 times through the movie or show.... I give up. It never used to do this so much but now it’s all the time. I go to the other competition movie app and it doesn’t do it on that app so I know it’s not my internet. Did you get rid of someone that knew what they were doing tech wise??? Also they used to change the movie choices more often and have newer movies, even better that the competition, but now the movies are always the same and all OLD movies and horror film it’s boring and sickening. There used to be more choices, what about PBS, what about getting up to date history channel. I’d like to see some historical dramas and movies!! I pay my fee each month and I’m barely getting good use out of the app. I Really think I’ll discontinue my subscription.
