Hulu Reports

What is going on with @hulu??? I haven’t been able to watch any shows on the app from any of my devices: fire stick, DVD players, or roku!!! This has been happening for days. However I can watch all other apps and shows. UGH #HuluDown

#HuluDown Watching Hulu channels and it keeps going back to this for 2 days now!! Able to stream all others just fine. This is not an issue with my internet connection. @hulu_support

Hey @hulu I’ve been getting this error for 2 days. I’ve updated the app, uninstalled & reinstalled it on my phone. It won’t even open the Help Center on Safari. I just wanna watch Hoarders. 😩 #HuluDown

Does @hulu start and stop and buffer and look generally horrible all the time? Don’t have any problems with YouTube or Netflix...

emailed hulu theater and they said i can bring my backpack so if i pull up w my backpack and they don’t let me in we’re gonna have PROBLEMS

Hulu is having issues since 11:45 PM EST. RT if it's down for you as well #Huludown

Anyone else having serious buffering issues with @hulu tonight? I've completely wiped chache and it. just. won't. stop.

it is incredibly hard to enjoy a show like Black Lighting when there is clearly a technical issue that is not the internet connection, and not the web browser. I have zero problems with any other show i'm trying to watch on @hulu. But Black Lighting just wont fully load.

I am sad... for some reason Chicago fire is not loading on hulu right now :/

Having Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and Disney Plus gives me way too many options and now I’m overwhelmed and have no idea what to watch... talk about first world problems lol

Hulu keeps saying I have a weak connection but I don't! #HuluDown

Hulu is having issues since 2:01 PM EST. RT if it's down for you as well #Huludown

Did anyone else’s #Hulu went down for like a second? #huludown

Is anyone else having problems with Hulu I’m just trying to watch party of 5 damnit… [ S:3 E:2 A Bit of Fry and Laurie Two country boys perform their song 'There Ain't But One Way' which advocates 'kickin' ass' in order to solve most of the world's problems... ] sadly, a modern high tech & "brain dead" military 'crusade' force…

Anyone having problems with ABC? I get an error anytime I try to watch. #Hulu

listen crippling depression has to WAIT there's something called LITTLEKENNY on HULU and it's letterkenny elementary school problems with ANIMATED GERMAN SHEPHARD PUBBIES.

I have problems. I’m obsessed with @LoveIsland and I need @Hulu to air the episodes as they air overseas lol. I cannot simply wait. And when is the Australia season 2 going to air too?

Hey @hulu, what's up? Feeling down? I am! #HuluDown

One of my main problems with the Hillary Hulu thing apart from the subject matter is that we don’t need documentary series. Edit your shit.

Come on @Hulu ..this is a historical can you allow your system to crash ‘. #HuluDown. @hulu_support

#HuluDown keep trying everyone, It was intermittent but hammered it back into working. @hulu you really need to stay ahead of demand, this is getting to be a constant issue and if you can’t tell the masses are pissed.

So @hulu, how's that historic TV broadcast of the Impeachment Trial going? I don't know, because #HuluDown !!!

Nice. Every damn news channel is currently not loading on Hulu.

Hulu is having issues since 3:41 PM EST. RT if it's down for you as well #Huludown

Dammit Hulu!! Today? Really?? #HuluDown

And of course @hulu love tv (FOR THOSE PAYING FOR THE DAMN SERVICE!!) is down YET again. A demand for refunds is about due! #HuluDown…

Anyone else having difficulties streaming impeachment hearing? #HuluDown

I was watching the #ImpeachmentTrial on @hulu but it seems to be not working for me now...all channels down! #HuluDown

So much for watching HISTORY unfold 🤬 #HuluDown

So yall crashing Hulu because of this impeachment shit? Cmon man there are bigger problems in the world like Chelsea - Arsenal

I'm watching a documentary on Donald J Trump on Hulu. He had early childhood development problems in School. The kids hated him threw erasers at teachers. Just a mess. So his dad sent him to military school. But he was a rich brat😂

17yo is not a bad kid. She's definitely going through Senioritis and anxiety over college. But she's also not doing her chores at home, loading and unloading dishes. She's taken off from school, claiming illness. So I changed the Netflix & Hulu passwords. She'll live.

One of the biggest problems with #Disney's streaming services is they're kinda competing with themselves (#DisneyPlus and #Hulu). Why? I get seperating kid-friendly content and more adult stuff. I find it interesting since Disney now owns the world.

Ya know what’s even worse than no flash ban? Having to restart @hulu over and over again because of can’t seem to load ads even though ad-blocker is down. Not my fault it isn’t loading, suuuuuper fun

Anyone else’s Hulu keeps keep crashing constantly? #HuluDown

This is typical for @disneyplus on my ps4. Makes everything irritating to watch. @hulu will stutter, too after I finish one show, but this is every episode. Never problems with @netflix. Hmmmm

I downgraded my Hulu to save some money and now having to sit through all these ads is killing me! Tell me this isn’t some first world problems shit.

I have zero problems with any of my other streaming services, including YouTube TV, Disney+, Hulu, Netflix etc. But ESPN+ has multiple issues from buffering live streams and delayed audio not matching up to video in their "on demand" programming. #UFC246 #ESPN refund please!!!

Anyone else having problems with Hulu?

goodbye Hulu it was an ok run, the service has gone downhill and your pricing up, this in combination with the live TV cutting out all the time. when i installed youtube tv all the problems went away and i have a better picture.
