Hulu Reports

This Wu-Tang story on Hulu. This too much drama. Im so sick of Ghostface Killah and Raekwon. I hate when people make unnecessary problems lol they make unnecessary problems. I'm still 3 episodes back so give me second. Maybe they get better 🤣

Disney+ might give Netflix and Hulu problems 👀

guy im so sorry. i need to cancel the 100 follower giveaway. i have BIG problems with getting accounts lately. but i have a small compensation. just dm me whenn you rted the 100 follower gaw and i will give you a spotify/hulu/crunchyroll account.

Just trying to watch some late night Handmaids, but I’m stuck here. Does this mean #HuluDown or....?

Why has Netflix been the worst fucking website for can never load anything but Hulu gives me no problems ever so what’s up with THAT why do y’all suck huh

Asked last week what people prefer between YouTube TV and Hulu Live. Had Hulu Live free trial last week with very little problems. Have the free trial of YouTube TV today, and it's buffering every few minutes or so with a worse picture quality. I think I know what I'm picking

S/O to @hulu for ruining my Sunday by not loading literally any football games. 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬What’s good @DIRECTV

Hulu has a insane delay! Baker is a spokesman! #HuluDown

#huludown I wanted to watch tv....what do I do with my life now? Watch #Netflix ? That’s just awful.

.@hulu_support Whyyyyy do I have to have a love/hate relationship with @hulu? 😩 Great shows you have...if only I could get them to stream! #HuluDown

so i bought sling to watch the #mlb playoffs but tonight wouldn’t let me watch fox. FOX. even though it’s on the list of channels. got hulu live instead. no problems 🧡

Not sure who's in control here but playback of @Barrett_Jackson Las Vegas on @NBCSN via @Hulu is plagued with multiple commercial breaks loading back-to-back, each with a separate countdown. Running as much as 8 minutes each. Tiresome. Annoying.

When you got the Hulu app on you’re phone so instead of squinting at the tv you search Halloween movies on the app...🤷🏾‍♀️ legally blind problems...🤦🏾‍♀️

Is anyone else having problems watching @hulu on their Smart TV or Phone ?

Anybody else having problems playong Friday Night Smackdown on Hulu?? Ours is not playing!

A hero doesn’t look for problems, they look for solutions! #TheBravestKnight is back with more episodes, streaming now on @hulu.

Does anyone else have issues with Hulu and playing specifically cbs shows? It’s been like this for a month and my WiFi connection is fine and other shows work but for whatever reason I can’t watch How I Met Your Mother or Mom without it buffering like 100000 times and I’m OVER IT

Someone suggests DSP stop having so many monthly subs. Calls person an idiot twice, says Kat pays for Hulu, and saving $20/month isn't going to solve his problems.

Wow, @hulu really does have live sports - only sometimes though. Third outage during live sports events in a week. #HuluDown

Hulu does not want me to finish The Hills. Every time I try to the show freezes. I can literally watch any other show or movie with no problems lol!

If @MattBevin doesn’t get his clowning ass face off my Hulu commercials with his bullshit about helping teacher pensions (not true) and love of Medicaid (not true) we’re gonna have problems #anyonebutbevin #whatanidiot

Warning! Avoid AT&T Internet /TV. Service is abominable. We had TV problems for 2+ yrs & just learned our boxes were the oldest on market & causing our issues. We switched to Hulu. ATT then raised our Internet cost from $40 to $70, but the ATT Internet promo is $40. We're done.

There isn’t doubt that Hulu is one of the best streaming services. But, no matter how good something is, problems don’t leave anything. Hulu is also integrated from a lot of error codes and other issues.… #mcafeecomactivate

Glad to see @hulu_support is right on top of problems. I messaged you 2 days ago and still no response

Hey @hulu why does the @Nationals game keep “having problems”? I ready to cancel you because I haven’t been able to watch a single game!

What is with Broadcast media these day? Bad sound, buffering issues with streams, unbalanced audio... I’m watching @TBSNetwork on @Hulu and the sound quality is horrid. Absolutely horrid. I don’t get it

All I wanted was a nice relaxing day and once again @Xbox is down AGAIN!! I never had so many problems since this year. I may have to make the switch!! Now I’m stuck and can’t play any games or watch Hulu. Not happy at all!! @XboxSupport

I expressed deep sorrow to my father that How I Met Your Mother was not loading on Hulu to which he replied “just close your eyes, I’m sure you’ve seen the episodes enough times to watch it by memory anyway”.

#HuluDown #HuluDoesnotCareAboutTheirCustomers It is crazy that outages happen, but such is life with technology. That is fine and I accept it. BUT when your reps don't know there is an outage and they keep you waiting for an hour.....HULU should do SOMETHING!

I’m waiting for the day where @hulu doesn’t suck butt. Constantly skipping, loading, not working. I don’t have any problems with any other apps on my roku 🤦🏼‍♀️

Anyone else having problems lately with Hulu not saving where you left off?

Anyone else been having @Hulu problems with their @amazon devices?

the uber eats app and hulu apps being the same color cause a lot more problems for me than one would assume

so is #HuluDown still today @hulu_support ? I'm trying to figure out if I can actually use it after work today or not before I rush on home

#HuluDown is @HULU still down everywhere. Haven’t been able to watch it for 2 days now. I’m in TX. When will it come back up. This is getting as bad as Directv Now.

U r down again tonight and when I call in to customer service it’s an hour wait time, this is ridiculous, I pay for a service I’m not getting then I have to waste more time in the phone. FIX UR SHIT #badservice #HuluDown #hulusucks…

If your going to keep having problems keeping your system up I should be getting a discount @hulu_support #HuluDown

Hey #hulu, why not worry less about making the app look different and worry more about how the service works. #huludown

My Hulu is down so I had to come to twitter to confirm that it’s not just me! #hulu #HuluDown

We cancelled our DirecTV and upgraded our @hulu. Ever since we have had SO MANY problems with the app/streaming. We are paying so much more money now, we SHOULD NOT be having this many problems. Unhappy, @hulu_support

Thinking of ending live tv with @hulu. Multiple crashes, multiple problems.. cable actually looks good again

Anyone else having problems watching @hulu ??? I’m just trying to watch a couple episodes of Star before bed but I guess not.

No Hulu you are not ready for football. Matter fact Hulu isn’t ready for anything. #hulu #huludown…

Just another night of HULU FAIL....I pay for a month, nightly fails, 3 day credit.... #HuluDown #huluisjunk #hulufail #hulucrap

No Baseball and #hulu is down, time to get canned goods and panic! #mlb #HuluDown #panic

Wow I love how Hulu works for hours then spams me with error codes every night and then won’t work. So glad I pay for it 😑 #HuluDown

I need my Hulu to be free this month all these problems @hulu @hulu_support

Ugh! @hulu_support @hulu We to you BECAUSE of the cost and interrupted service. This sucks. #hulu #huluhaslivesports #hululive #huludown
