you just lost a viewer 1/5
i cannot watch hulu anymore as it does not work with my device any longer. great marketing genius.
Great selection, but held back 3/5
If the User Interface was made much better (like their competitors) and they added something fresh to it, this would be perfect. Unfortunately, it’s bottlenecked by its lack of uniqueness in their UI.
Too many ads 1/5
Am I paying to watch 90seconds worth of ads after every 5minutes? The only reason I even use this crap is because the tv show isn’t on any other platform. If not for that then I would instantly delete this service
Every time I watch Hulu on my iPhone X it’s always say there’s an error
Compatibility issue 1/5
I am getting a message that the version I use of Hulu is no longer supported. Problem is my iPad is older and doesn't support OS 11. Can I no longer use the app without adds I pay for monthly any longer? I need to know how to fix this without having to buy a new iPad.
Good Quality, little content 3/5
I don’t have a problem with the app itself but with Hulu. All my favorite, and the only worth watching anime on Hulu are being taken off. These are the only thing I watch on Hulu and more than half of the anime content on Hulu!
Thanks Hulu. They've decided to stop supporting the old versions of this app that is required for my old iPad. Now I have no way of watching my shows. You just lost a loyal customer. I wasn't even given a warning that this version won't be supported in the future! Netflix and Prime still work just fine so I will be cancelling my subscription to this crap.
June 2019 update 1/5
My iPad is old but it still works so why buy a new one? Well...apparently Hulu upgraded itself so good I can no longer watch it. I don't understand why a company would encourage customer cancellations but if I can't watch it I'm certainly not going to continue paying for it. Or at least that's what I thought. I tried to go to the website through safari and it won't even let me use that.
Love the shows 4/5
I love the shows on Hulu and how you can watch current episodes for shows. However, the app drives me crazy. I mostly watch Hulu on my phone so I’m not sure if this is why but I will be watching an episode and if I pause to watch later, the show is not in the continue watching category. Instead I have to search for it. This happens a lot. I will continuously watch a show. If it has new episodes I will watch then it disappears. But I’m still watching it!! This happens regardless of if there are new episodes on a show or not. Would give it 5 stars because the content is great
Phasing out customers. 1/5
By Download Indicator
I have enjoyed Hulu for a couple years, and it was great. Apparently, Hulu isn't making enough money anymore, because they had to phase out my device. I want to update my app; however, I'm not ALLOWED to update it, apparently, because my device is too old. Apple sure seems to enjoy alienating their customers. I was once tried-and-true, but I'm considering going back to PC. :(
Not compatible with my iPad?!? 1/5
I have an iPad mini and today hulu would not work because it is "not compatible with this device". Why? I pay for Hulu, my device works, I should be able to use Hulu on here!! Why should I have to go and buy a new tablet to use your service?!?!?
incompatible with ipad 2 1/5
The new update is incompatible with my ipad 2. it worked fine before but now it says it's incompatible. Please give us backwards compatibility.
Changing to be new 1/5
I enjoyed the functionality and the easy visual management of content of some of the older versions. Maybe they will end up releasing something similar again in their constant effort to be new.
Cancelling Subscription 1/5
By Ms Anne Thrope
New update renders Hulu useless on my iPad. No point in keeping Hulu. Big bummer.
New update doesn't support iPad 2 1/5
By Upset iPad 2 user
The new update now requires iOS 11. Older iPad users are now unable to use the app! This needs to be fixed! I shouldn't have to buy a new iPad just to watch Hulu!
Refund my payment 1/5
What the hell? How do I get refunded and cancel my 12 year Hulu account?
HATE! HATE! HATE! 1/5
I am a PAYING subscriber, and the content of the upgrade is minimal at best.
Sounds petty (and is), but I’m a huge Bachelor Nation fan. This series is on BASIC cable, yet somehow......ALL of the previous seasons of Bachelor, Bachelorette, and Paradise....simply don’t exist.
This was merely my FIRST discovery (since I’m on this desperate quest to binge past seasons of Paradise now that the new cast has been revealed)......
But it’s rapidly brought to my attention that HULU has disposed of TONS of past seasons of episodes of MANY shows!!! I can’t find ANYTHING!
I’m seriously contemplating canceling my membership. The fees have not only become Astronomical, but the selection is insanely bleak at best with nothing to offer viewers in terms of past seasons.
This is where we come. From GOT to Bachelot followers, we want a place to go for current AND past seasons of BASIC programming at the LEAST!
WE ARE PAYING FOR IT!!!!!!!!! Pleeeeeeeease FIX!
Hulu sort of leaves me conflicted. On one hand, they do offer a lot of content you can’t get else where. On the other hand, their streaming is so buggy that watching anything is an exercise in frustration. Watched half a movie which crashed. Tried to get back into it to h. ave it start from the beginning rather than resuming resuming where it crashed ( which it asked me if that’s what it wanted me to do). With all the new streaming services available, why waste money on this one?
Unethical Company 1/5
I watched shows on my iPad to help me sleep. Now Hulu turns off support for my iPad with a splash screen when I open the app saying to update BUT the update requires I buy a new iPad. Indiscriminately RUDE!!! I pay for the subscription and they no longer care about my fair use. I think I may sue.
Blocked while traveling 1/5
The app now blocks while traveling. Error message states that it has to be used every 30 days at home. I travel a little over 1 week for business and I was locked out the entire time. Convenient how I was able to use the app right before leaving town only for it to forget that I REGULARLY use the app on my phone.
3rd or 4th time reviewing 2/5
It seems that every time I turn around, I’m re writing this review. The content is great but the app is so buggy. When you try to watch something, it sits and loads forever then times out. I have to restart the app a few times to get it to work. Then when it’s time for next episode, it errors out and you have to do it all over again. Looking forward to re writing this in a month.
App crashes on startup 1/5
iPhone X. When I try to start the app it crashes every time. Come on Hulu!
Hulu mediocre, navigation HORRIBLE 1/5
I just updated after being a few versions behind. This is the WORST designed navigation I think I’ve ever seen. You can only view one show at a time in regular mode. Four in search mode. You used to be able to see around a dozen at once, from multiple categories now you have to search one category at a time and browse slowly through. And your watch list you can only see one show at a time. SO HORRIBLY SLOW. I’m only paying $1/mo from a deal and still considering canceling it’s SO BAD!
I purposely turned off automatic updates because I have an old iPad. Now I can’t even download Hulu to watch on the only way, besides my phone, that I can watch tv. What a waste of my money. It should be able to stream on any IOS. Canceling my account.
This app is awesome but... why is fast forward 30 sec and go back 10? Everything else is great I use this app often and so far I have no problems so that’s amazing
Thank you for taking time and effort into reading this to make the app better
What were you thinking with update? 1/5
By Bugs need fixing now!
OMG. hulu what were you thinking with this update? Cannot figure out how to browse all your shows for the life of me. Have no idea how to tell what shows you have. Have zero interest in only browsing shows suggested for me or popular. I want to see ALL you have in a genre. are you suddenly allergic to thumbnails? Hope you figure it out before the end of this season of handmaids tale or I will probably cancel. For now, I’m going to tap on Netflix, or maybe Amazon when tomorrow’s episode of handmaids tale is over. I can browse a hundred or so shows in one screen with those apps.
Not a fan 1/5
Compared to the competitors like Netflix or Amazon prime, the App is really bad. Download functionality is missing and now it tells me that the App is blocked and I need to unlock it from home network. Well I only need the App when I’m traveling and am not at home where I have a tv stick ... completely useless in this state
nothing but issues when trying to chromecast. it will play for a lil bit then says "error playing this video."
No more Hulu 1/5
I pay for Hulu. Suddenly it won't work insists I upgrade to new app. I upgrade and it says will no longer work on my iPad. So you couldn't keep old version for paying customer who doesn't have latest version of iPad? Not everyone is buying new Apple iPads to upgrade to your new software. Seems like you don't care about your customers.
You let us down 1/5
By Ya mommaz mama
You changed the app with no warning for IOS users with the IOS 9 operating system. We have an older iPad mini that has no more available updates but you kicked us out from beings able to watch Hulu because you don't support our system. So I should have to buy a new iPad tablet every few years just to keep up with your app? Is that fair???? You should consider some of the older IOS systems and the newer. Not everyone is updating their devices every freaking year!!!!! Bring the 4.1 version of Hulu back for those of us who NEED it and have no other options of upgrading our iPads or iPhones!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Snobbish society to kick others out due to supporting ONLY newer upgrades for only newer iPhones and newer systems. Want people to keep up with you all,include us all! Include event those who can't afford the freaking newer iPhones and iPads and that come with the newer operating systems!!!!!!
TO MANY ADS 4/5
By Dancer 1660 😂
to many ads and they’re to long. i wanna be able to watch my show without 90 second ads that i’ve seen so many times.
Forced to Update 1/5
That new update was terrible on my iPad and PlayStation. So I didn’t bother to update on my iPhone now im forced to update the app since its no longer supported. Thanks. The functions don’t even work right every time i touch the screen on my ipad it goes black and i have to touch it again to get normal again.
Useless App Now 1/5
Thanks to the new update, older devices are no longer supported. I'm now paying for service I can't use because the website will not allow me to login to cancel my subscription.
No more adds 5/5
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 and can you guys stop showing the adds again please it is Driving me crazy please telling you this please stop showing the adds and I’m sorry kind being but I’m sorry please no more adds
Ignoring my request for support...watching the review numbers. You are x'ing me out 1/5
Make me buy a new device! No way...I pay my subscription....give me my contracted Hulu...my iPad won't support new app...I see a class action!
PLEASE Fix 1/5
When I open app tells me I have to upgrade go to upgrade there is no update to download.
Since last update place never saved where I left off watching, can't add to my list. Can't really watch anything since place I pause never saved.
Hulu crashes all the time and freezes a lot, regardless of device. Also since this new update (6/17/19) it will not work on my ipad, saying it is no longer supported on this device. And no, my device does not need to be updated. Thanks a lot, hulu. Just lost a customer.
Language Bleeper 4/5
I currently rate Hulu a 4 star because it brings back a lot of older family-oriented shows to which seniors relate. However, I also like some PG-13 shows that aren't really raunchy, but being a saved individual I have to forgo the shows because of language. I was wondering if Hulu can adjust their app such as PureFlix does. In settings, PureFlix provides an option that bleeps out profanity. Today's culture accepts profanity as the norm, but there are some otherwise decent shows that Christians don't watch because of profanity.
I can't even download this new version I
On my mini iPad!!! Wth!!! Fix this!!!
Contrast is horrible 2/5
Watching shows like the handmaid’s tale is really frustrating because any time it is night in the scene, it’s so dark that I can’t see what’s going on.
As of today, no more support for iPad 2 ??? 1/5
I'm bummed and now forced to cancel. 😢
I can’t get into my account... 3/5
I pay my account each month and continue to be kicked out of the app each time I use it on my Iphone. The main device I use to watch hulu is my phone, and now I can’t do that. I love hulu and all the content but it becomes frustrating when I am not able to watch it when I pay each month. I have tried calling customer service 2-3 times and have gotten the same answer each time. They aren’t sure why I can’t get into the app on my Iphone. Please fix this issue soon.
Error all the time 1/5
By Miss flickers
Always saying error this is the last month I’m paying for this crap 🤬
No longer supporting anything except IOS 11 + 1/5
Ridiculous. This iPad is in perfect working order but bc it is running IOS 9.3.5 I can no longer watch Hulu. I guess I'm not your ideal customer and am no longer needed as a monthly subscriber. I watch while traveling and use this iPad mini for Netflix and Hulu. Guess it's just Netflix from here.
Casting momma 2/5
I’m a mom and a lot of times I’ll play a movie for my kids while doing my own thing. Most of the time my own thing is scrolling through Facebook. Well if you’re casting Hulu from your phone to your tv you can’t watch videos on your phone. It will pause the video after a few seconds of playing. This only happens when I use Hulu. I love that Hulu continues to play movies/tv shows one after another but I want to do my own thing too.
If you try to watch something it says try to close and reopen app I've done that 4 times and still won't work fix this
Just one thing 3/5
It’s a good overall app have no problems, but it just needs an overall better transition functions like Netflix’s. I’m sure it would be an easy update, and would greatly improve most others experiences.
Great shows terrible app 1/5
The content is fantastic but the quality of the app makes it impossible to want to watch. Me and countless others are having issues with it not picking up where you left off; I’m currently having an issue where the episode just restarts from the beginning if I completely close out the app and go back later. As well as hitting “play” on an episode simply just pops it up and I’m prompted to hit play again? Too much redundancy and not enough stability.
Netflix still the best 1/5
Netflix still the best! Not user friendly app and less international movies. I have both Netflix and Hulu but never enjoy Hulu ever. I even enjoyed Pluto than Hulu
