Why the Ads? 3/5
I just got the basic plan of Hulu and I loved it as first. The service has a great variety of shows in both original content & third party shows. However, the biggest problem I find with Hulu is that a lot of their third party shows have ads on them similar to YouTube or free streaming services like Syfy, which to me beats the whole purpose of Hulu to begin with since sites like that are supposed to be free. I’ll keep my account for the rest of the year, but after that I’ll probably stick to Netflix & Disney+ since at least they’re ad free
Still no Picture in Picture ! 😡 1/5
Yet Another update and STILL NO PICTURE IN PICTURE! 4 versions ago this app could to do PIP smh ....why was it removed! .... you can bring it back again, and still continue on all these “bug fixes” that you’re talking about in the background .... BRING BACK PICTURE IN PICTURE!!!
No Picture in Picture 1/5
Hulu support acts like they didn't intentionally remove this feature. Probably gonna charge us more for PiP later.
Simply pathetic 2/5
For how large a company Hulu has become, it’s simply inexcusable for their iOS/iPadOS app to be so pathetically buggy and infuriating.
• The ad algorithm/frequency (even with paid subscriptions) will have you pulling your hair out at the very least.
• Whoever works on their ChromeCast/Airplay Integration should seriously reconsider their career, unless it was an intern. But still, yikes.
• The interface is downright awful - laggy, glitchy, and nonsensical. I had to teach a 25 year old how to use it.
• It’s an “unstable” app on almost all recent apple and android devices, reminds me of trying to play games on Windows 98 for more than 17 mins at a time.
• Hulu needs to do better. Using their app is an awful experience, but alas we’ll all just have to soldier on putting up with their mediocrity.
They literally removed picture-in-picture 2/5
They took the time to develop, test, and release picture-in-picture, just to turn around and remove it. Why?
Won’t start up anymore 1/5
Not sure why, but the app won’t start up anymore. I upgraded from an iPhone 6s to the iPhone 12 mini, both were on iOS 14, and now the Hulu app won’t get past the launch screen. It asks me about Bluetooth and discovering other devices on the network, and just gets stuck. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling but that didn’t do anything.
I have to tell you something that is probably too late but DO NOT TAKE PENGUIN OF MADAGASCAR OF HULU!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it and please put allllvvvviiiiinn and the chipmunks on again that is all I wanted to say so bye
Ads upon ads 1/5
The only modern streaming service that has you pay and still watch ads. The content is great, but the amount of ads is ridiculous.
Fix play/pause in landscape 1/5
Can’t pause and play show in landscape without moving to portrait or if you have iPhone swipe down from bottom and play pause from Apple menu, or use Apple Watch controls. Fellow friends y’all are welcome. Hulu staff friends send me a note so I can change to 5 stars and hook me up with a QA wfh job I’ll test the crap outta your stuff on android Apple and windows devices. Text me How.Sam.Wise😎
The app stinks! 1/5
This app is not user friendly and closes every time I cast to my TV and then it loses my spot when I open it again. Happens every single time I use the app. It’s incredibly frustrating.
I’m having a lot of bugs while casting it on my TV.
Glitches and crashes often 2/5
By Navy Eagle
The app if very frustrating. It has lots of bugs and often crashes or has issues with playing, resuming or continuing the shows.
DOESNT SUPPORT PIP 1/5
Hulu app doesn’t support Picture in Picture
Too many ads, clunky navigation 2/5
Ad-supported version has too many ads. Furthermore, it forces you to repeatedly re-watch a block of ads each time you rewind past the start of the block, regardless of how many ads you’ve just watched.
Apple users beware! 1/5
By The Wine Guy!
This app crashes on a daily basis. I cannot ever open live TV immediately. I have to trick the app into allowing me to watch live by opening an old show and then switching to live later on. I also receive errors on billing issues...and I’ve only had this for 3 weeks! I haven’t even gone through a billing cycle yet.
If you want to watch old garbage, don’t want to pick your own programming and have to fight with a glitchy app (on iPhone), go ahead. Otherwise, find a different provider.
It’s not that good. Yes it has great amount of movies or show, but way too many for premium. They’ve changed so many good shows to premium. I don’t really like that. It honestly just ruins the whole thing.
Worst app ever 1/5
Very laggy, doesn’t work properly with chromecast. Always skips 10-15 mins after an ad.
By michael kirito
Good, but missing some features 4/5
For example, no Picture-in-Picture on iPhones that support it. Would like to see that in an update coming in the next few weeks if possible/
Why can’t you let me whatch space buddies and space jam 1/5
Please let me whatch space buddies and space jam I barely be
Ever get to whatch them
App has major functionality issues 1/5
A streaming service of this caliber should have a app that actually functions properly.
I love it, so many anime’s! Just a few ideas.... 4/5
By uuhhh i like CHEESe
This is the best app for watching anime I’ve used, well kind of. There are a ton of anime’s to choose from such as MHA, Haikyu, Attack in Titan, Death Note, and so many more! But During MHA Right after the intro, an ad shows up. That’s not really ideal because after the intro, you would expect a scene and then a beginning cliffhanger (I know everyone hates cliffhangers) and then an ad. But of course not all anime’s have those types of things like beginning cliffhangers but you know what I mean. Netflix has no ads which is nice, but it doesn’t have many anime’s, so that’s a plus. Thank you for your time. ♡︎♥︎♡︎♥︎
Not entirely sure if the update is the cause but I’m unable to download episodes anymore. Hulu is a great app but what really makes it shine is the tv shows that Netflix does not have. I enjoy downloading episodes so on certain days at work I can watch tv without the worry of having no internet connection. Netflix allows me to download episodes still and at current it’s my only lifeline.
Good selection of shows, very basic app 3/5
I found a lot of shows I’d like to watch, and that was great!
But the app itself is way too basic. I have Bluetooth enabled for it, but I can’t get the app to respond to the keyboard’s input.
Also, a Skip Intro would be nice.
But the shows are great!
Ads and show 2/5
It was good until ads and when I watch attack on titans it skips the whole good part which is the SASAGEYO part
To many ADDS 4/5
By i live and love this
I live this app so much, infact live for it. I just cant stand the overlaod of adds. It takes away the enjoyment of my show. I love Dance Moms its an all time favorite, but its a pet peeve of mine for adds. I HATE THEM. It would make it more easier for me to watch without any inturuptions, I understand there trying to get the word around for stuff. But you dont have to put 4 straight adds in my time while I am enjoying my free time. So if you could please stop that, it would be so kind of you. Dont make me be a Karen :)
By Dueces, Hulu
Hulu has never really been my favorite app. Picture in Picture worked for a few weeks, then I updated the app and it gets taken away? Now I’m forced to sit through the commercial breaks which have gotten LONGER! Canceling my subscription.
To many ads and too long 3/5
To many ads
Too many commercials 1/5
Way too many commercials. I mean, come on Hulu. It’s not good to constantly put commercials during the best parts of a show nor is it good to force 5 commercials in a 20 minute tv show. The only portion of this service that doesn’t overwhelm you with constant commercials is the movies category. It’s disappointing to know that YouTube does the exact same thing and it’s free. So, personally I’m unsubscribing because it’s a waste of money at this point. There’s plenty of sites that offer endless commercials without the need to pay monthly.
to many ads 3/5
I really like this app but there is to many ads and it’s a lot of money a month to not have them.
Hulu is A M A Z I N G 5/5
So I got Hulu recently and I am loving it! There is such a big selection of movies, tv shows, cartoons, and anime that it’s crazy I am hooked on Hulu and I think you will like it too.
NO PIP 1/5
Hulu allowed picture-in-picture for a couple days and it worked great! Not sure why they took it away but it is the streaming app not to allow PIP. Choose Netflix! Or Disney Plus!! NOT HULU.
The commercials are really long and you can’t skip them the longest is 3 minutes so that’s about the only problem.
App is horrid 1/5
The app on the iPhone is terrible. The streaming does not align with the chrome casting to a television screen. You have to reset the app each time, and hope that it doesn’t force you to restart the program you were viewing. I’ve had it for two days and I’m displeased.
Love It! 5/5
I am able to watch the Mary Tyler Moore Show. I had forgotten most of the episodes. Thanks so much.
Bring back minimize video without closing 4/5
Not a big fan of latest update. Bring back where you can watch your video and send texts or open other apps while still watching your video. It was literally what brought me back into watching Hulu. Great app, just really request they bring back this one feature
Worst interface ever 1/5
By gang gan gget cheesseed
Seriously Hulu. I love your shows and what you have to over, but this app is terrible.
I love Hulu but ... 1/5
I love the shows Hulu has. I love the movies. What I don’t like is the fact on my mobile app it’s so slow, it messes up a lot, and it’s just a pain to deal with. I’d love it a lot more if it was better on a phone.
A few issues.. 2/5
I love that Hulu has certain shows that I enjoy which are not on other streaming services. That being said, there are a few issues. I primarily watch Hulu on my iPhone; whenever I am in fullscreen (landscape mode) the play and pause button do not work. Mildly annoying. Next up- subtitles. They are sparse. Subtitles only show up half the time. I have missed entire scenes of dialogue in subtitles which never seems to happen with Amazon Prime, Netflix, or Disney Plus on this same device. Last issue is the ads. Yes, I realize I do not have the ad free service, however-many times I will watch the ads and somehow miss some dialogue or quick scene when the show comes back on. Yet when I back track using the “rewind 10 seconds” feature too close to the advertisement, the ENTIRE 1 minute and 30 seconds of ads replay. Pretty darned annoying, considering I did pay for this service instead of a TV service. I end up watching just as many commercials during a 30 minute viewing period as I would have with a tv subscription. Hulu, please fix these things, you know well this is not what your clientele is paying for! Other than these things, it is a good service.
VERY BUGGY 1/5
resuming after pausing rarely works. recently we were watching an episode and it kept skipping forward 10 seconds
No PIP ridiculous 1/5
The fact they removed PIP is ridiculous. Especially since they want people to use the app for live TV. Get a clue Hulu and put it back.
Ads are ridiculous 3/5
Way too many interruptions for a 22 minute show. We pay for a subscription we shouldn’t have to sit through advertisements that’s why we pay for a subscription! Netflix doesn’t do subscriptions maybe that’s why they’re doing better..
Cant pause in full screen 4/5
What the flaming jesus puppy is the issue here. I wanna pause while full screen on iOS come on Hulu fix this before Christmas
Way to long adds 1/5
Im just trying to watch a show and out of no where a add comes up I don't know why I have to wait up to 3 minutes to go back to the show thats why Netflix is better than this crap can you please remove the adds or make then way shorter like up to 30 seconds 3 minutes is way to long and at least make it to have 1 add not 3
get child rapist daniel hernandez off my hulu 4/5
i love hulu except the ads
but i just opened the app to a documentary about child rapist daniel hernandez. also known as 69. disgusting.
Having a terrible time logging into this app. Always have a huge problem with this. And the app won’t progress when you log in. Very unhappy.
Terrible update 1/5
I’ve had Hulu for awhile now and will be terminating my services once I get WiFi. Why would I do that? Because I live in a very good area to just plug an HDMI cord into an adapter to my iPad and watch TV like that, but with this new update I can no longer watch live tv without a home internet connection. TRASH. I be buying a another device and jail breaking it to watch everything for free including live TV, since I can no longer watch live that I pat for on my phone. My truck has WiFi in it so until I cancel my subscription I’ll be watching while I’m driving since we’re being petty. Terrible update to add to this app.
By Zach loves jasmine
I have to restart every episode I have already watched. Must add to my review because I cancelled my membership and for the rest of my month I couldn’t watch anything. Slow signal when I was in internet and 4g. Won’t be back Hulu. Sorry but I can watch the same shows you offer with my cable subscription. Ok sorry started with 2 but going to 1
By longgggggg wait
Love Hulu! Wish they had more movies!
