Poor Interface 1/5
For a while, the iPhone/AppleTV app were usable. Won’t say great, but decent. I canceled subscription after the last big app update. Just checked back but it isn’t any better. Personally, I hate the Netflix style interface. The sorting and browsing is awful, unless you just consume what they present to you front and center. Otherwise you end up selecting a genre, and if the sub-genre you want didn’t make the cut, your stuck scrolling for the next 30 minutes through the A to Z category. In the mood for a 50’s - 60’s creature feature? Browse horror from A-Z and hope you get lucky! Want to watch an old cowboy western? Not even a category anymore! Tag/parametric based search please. Genre, sub-genres, actors, decade, year, season, rating, most recent, etc. For TV shows, a ‘most recent releases’ would be nice when you clicked a genre.
Paying for ads 1/5
What a rip off I’m basically paying too watching my shows that STILL come with ads , what a shame you still have too charge peaple and still put ads ,
Amazon Customer 1/5
Will not load on Amazon Fire-stick. There is always an issue!
Needs major improvement 1/5
Unless you have a show that feel like you must watch on Hulu, don’t subscribe to it. I have 3 other streaming services, not that I’m proud of it, and this is by far the worst functioning service. I’m constantly finding little annoying bugs or or just crappy layouts on the that just add up to being very frustrating to deal with. Granted, I have the least expensive plan and I’m willing to deal with all of the ads, but its lots of other little things adding up that make it not even worth $6-7.
HOW INFURIATING! 1/5
Why do I have to sit through two minute adds every 5 minutes? They are getting ridiculous with the ads they throw in. I can't even skip or rewind because I will have ads I more ads then the entire show.
Pretty good steaming app but I was trying to watch a show that was sub or dub and it randomly cuts to only sub in the middle of the season and Now I can’t watch it dub and personally I like to watch shows to replace not read it word for word like a book
Hulu a.k.a “Laggy the Buffering Player” 1/5
Terrible performance, even after updates. Doesn’t stream well on any device, let alone mobile devices. Hulu is one of the more terrible streaming services. Lags, delayed audio, poor streaming quality (even when I am hard-wired into my modem with gig-service).
C’mon Hulu team, be better. Fix this, you’re payed way too much for this kind of quality.
Add too loud 1/5
Hey I hope your aware your ads are way too loud!? Fr that is so annoying. Honestly I’d just stick to Netflix. Not recommended at all.
This app is Garbage 2/5
Won’t stream to my tv every other episode. “We’re having problems playing this content, plz try again later…” etc. HULU no longer works in the smart TV based app, either and states no longer supported on VIZIO. Makes it hard to even watch at all. Come ON!!
Too Many Ads 1/5
It’s so annoying! Has too many adds all the time makes it hard to rewind/skip and forward with that I prefer Netflix and wish that Netflix had the shows Hulu offered because I dislike Hulu
Bad service 1/5
I don’t understand how such a big company needs to put 2 minute ads every 8 minutes you would think they would put the customers first instead of there money. In my opinion save your money and go to Netflix
Great app just needs to be optimized for new iPad mini resolution! 4/5
Perfect app except for on my new iPad mini due to the new resolution it has a black box around all four sides. Without that would be the perfect app!
THE COMMERCIALS ARE KILLING ME!! 3/5
The commercials are blowing me but overall it’s good.
Slow, Crashes, Poor UI 1/5
You’d think that a top streaming app like Hulu would work properly on the world’s most popular tablet. I’ve tried everything to get this app to work properly on my iPad, yet nothing helps eliminate the extreme lag, timeouts, constant loading and crashing.
I have no speed issues with other apps, have super fast internet and speed tests, have tried reinstalling, updates, router resets, restarts, power downs, etc. Nothing helps. Not to mention the odd interface behaviors. It’s a good looking app but meaningless if it doesn’t work. The cheaper Hulu service on my Roku works pretty well, but this streaming Hulu Live experience is the absolute worst.
On a side note, it’s ridiculous that Hulu has such annoying restrictions on location usage, preventing paying users from watching on their Roku when you’re on the road or staying somewhere away from home. Which is why I have to use this awful iPad app.
It’s also annoying how Hulu charges extra for everything (only streaming service where you can’t fast forward through commercials or record single episodes without paying $15 extra). With all of the commercials you have to watch with cable, they shouldn’t be charging extra for these features on top of an already pricy service. It’s no wonder people are opting for Netflix, which is far cheaper, has no commercials, is not buggy and has more watchable content.
Out of Date iPad 1/5
By Broke iPad Owner
I guess my iPad is too old and can't update to the newest iOS, therefore Hulu can't update and I can't watch my shows on it anymore.
Doesn’t Work 1/5
The logo appears when I open the app, but then the screen goes black and doesn’t do anything else. I can’t even get to the log in screen. I even tried deleting and re-downloading but still doesn’t work. Guess I’ll just have to cancel my subscription since I can’t watch it on my phone.
Would be a 5 BUT!!!!!! 3/5
The app is great but how doesn’t it have the basic needs like Netflix.!!!!! Y’all should make a automatic reset when u watch a episode after a certain time episode resets itself I hate that it skips if you watch a certain episode. Y’all are competing with Netflix and others y’all should surpass them not follow. Y’all can be better
By like a dino
Awsome app but they have to many adds, and the glitches!?
Terrible service for live TV 1/5
I bought live tv and redzone together, I sometimes visit my girls home and they limit you where you can watch on tv due to IP address. I will not pay $75 to be limited where I can watch my service. I guess they dont want people sharing logins but this is so stupid. Hence I cancelled this garbage service
Complications with ads 3/5
If the show comes back from an advertisement/“commercial,” I CANNOT use HULU’S 15 second rewind, because it will make me watch the advertisement again. So, if I miss ANYTHING (maybe I heard something wrong and missed the subtitles), I HAVE TO wait/count until I know 15 seconds have passed since the last ad that played; to go back and catch what I missed.. 14 seconds? Too bad, you have to rewatch the same ads you just watched. Makes me regret coming back to Hulu. I definitely don’t watch enough Hulu to waste an extra $5-$10 a month.
It KEEPS GLITCHING OUT OMGGG
Price increase + inappropriate ads. 1/5
They increased the price and are still showing ads (some of the ads are EXTREMELY inappropriate for children to see as well. Hulu should honestly be ashamed) . Plus if you’ve already watched through a show and want to watch it again they start every episode from the end so you have to rewind every single time. So annoying. Thank god Netflix doesn’t do that kind of stuff to me. Thinking about deleting Hulu.
Best subscription service IMO 4/5
By truth from beechneega
Wide variety larger than Netflix and better than HBO max for sure. Now I could write a whole thesis to go into detail but I’ll reframe. Sure this streaming service is great but there are some things that really get me P.O. … firstly if you don’t have the full series let the viewer know with maybe saying it in the description! What’s the point of getting invested or getting this whole app for incomplete show!!!Also if you only have half of the series or even less than that in a Dub or Sub you should let them know!! For that reason if anyone here is looking for a complete anime don’t get your hopes up lol 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼Big L and fix it Hulu especially when it’s advertised online with blurred lines! Besides that wonderful app ultimately won’t ever top 123 movies or kissanime but great service and quality in many aspects.
Glitches and crashes! 1/5
I can’t wait even get through a show anymore without the app crashing over and over. I am cancelling my subscription and deleting. Not worth it!!!!
Garbage service, DVR is a mess 1/5
Entire networks go down for days at a time. This weekend Fox was down for over a day so no nfl football. DVR doesn’t show recorded shows on iOS devices. Roku shows them all. Hulu has no idea why yet many users have same issue.
Too slow to load content 1/5
By I'm Switching to Samsung
The worst TV app I’ve ever used. Slow on iOS, slow on my Bravia TV. Switching between programs can take a long time. YoutubeTV was flawless compared to this app. I might be switching back soon.
Impossibile to re-subscribe 1/5
It looks like Hulu doesn’t want user to renew within iOS, I guess it makes it too easy to cancel your subscription. Hopefully Apple will get on their case.
i love hulu but, 4/5
i hate that when i log into a new device it logs me out of my other devices- like i want it on my phone cuz i don’t wanna be on my laptop all the time and it logs me out like can u pls fix this-
It Crashes 3/5
By Joe, Colo.
I use it frequently, but it crashes on multiplayer frequently.
It’s not a deal breaker, but be expecting the inconvenience.
Zero Stars! 1/5
Every time there is a big game on they have issues! I spent 35 minutes on the phone because the Browns vs Cardinals game is not showing. They blamed it on Fox having issues and told me to call back later to speak to a manager about a refund because the hold time is too long. Seriously!! They said I’m not the only person upset but can only offer a 3 day refund! That’s not enough because now I have to subscribe somewhere else. Don’t use this service!
Very happy customer 5/5
I love the customer service, you really get what you pay for. Now I have the app on my phone, I can’t wait to be able to watch stuff while I’m at work (I got the wifi password) lol
Thank you Hulu for letting me watch my football game.
Different device issue 4/5
I love the app, but when I watch Hulu ( no ads) on my computer I get no ads, but when I try watching the same show on my phone ads pop up. Hulu is connected on both devices with the same email and everything, so I shouldn’t be having a problem. But it is. Is this a glitch or something?
GREAT SHOWS but to meny adds 3/5
Take away a few ads.
Issues with live 1/5
Can never watch live without issues or wait times etc, today I can’t watch either nfl game
Can’t tell I’m home 1/5
Why can’t this app tell that I’m at home? I keep getting that I need to log in at home (I am) to play live tv
Login problems 2/5
By incredible queen
I’m finding it difficult to login into my Hulu account, I can’t even update payment. How do I rectify this?
By bad Supervisors
If he’s ever been stuck where you need a couple days to make a payment forget about it because they’re not helping you
Commercials every 5 minutes 1/5
This is downright ridiculous. I watch more commercials than tv I swear. Can’t stand it
cant block certain ads and it’s BAD. 1/5
I have never written a review before but felt the need to for an app so popular and when I saw so many people were dealing with the same problems, you can’t block any ads or have any control over them. I can’t watch horror ads without muting the sound and not look at the screen. I will literally be watching cartoons and these horrible ads come on so often (like 6 times in the span of a 25 minute show is not okay.) I prepare for it since it happens so much, with family and friends its embarrassing and ruins the whole reason I (and lots of us) watch tv is to distract ourselves and rewind:,)! With a quick google search you’ll come to see this is not a small problem and alcoholics also struggle with this with alcohol ads. There is a Hulu community website where people can do q&a’s and tons of people are and have been unhappy with this. You should be able to have control of things that trigger you and say not interested regardless of paying not paying for the ad free version. This is no joke and can completely trigger a problem for the viewers. It doesn’t make me want to pay for it, it makes me want to cancel my subscription. Terrible customer service, terrible reporting system, terrible everything. I would suggest liking, upvoting, or also leaving reviews or your opinions on Reddit, Hulu community, the App Store, etc.
Hulu do the right thing and find a solution to this.
Hotstar USA Content 1/5
Not able to find Hotstar Telugu content and no subtitles for Bollywood movies(hotstar)
How does an app this big have so many bugs? I have never had to close and restart an app so many times. Arguably the least functional app I have on my devices. I dunno what you’re “fixing” when you update the app but it can’t be much because it’s always buggy and always in the exact same way.
Not worth it 1/5
By Yaz Camacho
I had to go with the cheapest plan where you have to watch ads. It’s not fair when you rewind or forward a show, you have to see so many ads after you already have watched the 2 mns ad. And on top of that it takes you to another episode which you haven’t even seen. You guys need to fix this glitches.
Can’t delete recordings 3/5
By The Original PDaddy
I can’t delete some recordings. Olympic events were moved to the sports menu after I recorded them and now I can’t remove them.
I can’t delete from the Apple TV app or the iPhone app.
Are these comments being monitored by Hulu?
It appears that nobody responds to the community help site. I tried to use the support system here, but that doesn’t work either. Someone please help me.
Slow and poor UI 1/5
Only app I use that takes forever to load!
i’m watching the same amount of ads as i do the show and i pay for this app. The only reason i haven’t deleted is bc of OPM season 2, luckily i’m only a couple episodes away from finishing
No words 5/5
By Eleveneggos. 011
Hulu Live TV Freezes 2/5
By Avoid at any cost
This is an Apple TV Hulu app review, since it doesn’t appear there’s a way to review Apple TV apps. I am in my one month trial for Hulu plus live TV, and the live TV portion freezes very frequently. I won’t be able to keep it if it is still doing that by the end of my trial. From what it looks like according to reviews, it’s an issue that’s been going on for well over a year. So my hopes are not high.
Terrible app 2/5
The actual function of the Hulu app is awful. Crashes all the time, the wrong sound plays etc.
No Ads = Ads 1/5
Live + No Ads is a scam. You’ll still get ads in non-Hulu content. I had just the Hulu no-ads package then added Hulu Live for some sports and now I get ads in content I was watching previously that did not have ads when I did not have Hulu Live.
