Hulu Reports

Hulu still not loading hhhhhhh

What buffers and freezes over and over? @hulu of course. Getting a full HD stream of the same exact content via @YouTubeTV without issue. #ripoff #HuluDown

I've been sitting here for almost 2 min and hulu is not loading why would you do this to me

While facing some sorts of problems to add on some private hidden private channels to your Roku device, you can dial our Roku Support Phone Number+1-877-717-0727 to get the best solutions.… #USA #Netflix #Hulu #HOTSTAR #YouTube #AmazonPrimeVideo #webseries

I blasted through all of #RHOBH and #RHONY that's available on Hulu in a matter of weeks. I just couldn't look away at what rich people think are "problems."

Finally signing up to @hulu again ... unfortunately p-dev323 issue and not a single video is playing. Disappointed might cancel again. #HuluDown

Omg what a rare occurrence. @hulu is not loading?? But their service is usually so good. 🤷‍♂️

If I didn’t get #hulu for free through Spotify I wouldn’t bother with it. 5 minute minimum for commercials, and it tends to have problems causing it to close the show, then you spend the time rewatching the same 90 second ad 2-4 more times.

From hulu's "The Weekly" "The fact that America is so divided today is more valuable than picking the winner of the presidential race because the US is dealing with internal problems & is pulling back internationally." Putin picked his puppets well. It's time to cut the strings!

Hey @hulu @hulu_support I’m on season 12 of The Simpson’s after non stop bingeing for the past few days. Could you not right now? I’m trying to get em all in before my Live trial ends, thx #huludown

I'm trying to watch The Shield on Hulu but it's down. Big time first world problem, but I'm still mad. GIVE ME MORE CHIKLIS, YOU ASSHOLES. #hulu #huludown

Is someone @hulu trying to be funny. This is the suggestion on my home screen when nothing will launch? If I wasn’t so annoyed, I would laugh. #huludown

Seems the @hulu problem isn't just on my TV. #huludown

#HULUdown is ruining my dinner with my husband... I look forward to the little time I get with him

Was watching a show fine, decided to switch to Bob's burgers and #HULUdown

I wanted to be in bed by 4am but because #HuluDown I won't be in bed till 5am

Anyone else having issues with @Hulu right now??? Can’t get anything to stream. #Hulu @hulu_support #HULUdown

Hulu is having issues since 3:09 AM EDT. RT if it's down for you as well #Huludown

WHOOO is the weeb trash watching demon slayer kimetsu no yaiba on ~~~MY~~~ HULU~~~ DUDE MAKE YOUr OWN PROFILE on the account!!!! or else everybody!!! is getting the boot and none of those "friends" will ever have a reason to sub me online about my personal problems anymore!

This game was done hours ago, it's just been background noise for me since then. Anyway, tonight proves that Hulu with live TV is worth it for me since I had zero problems with it and get the broadcast networks and decent cable channels. #GoPats #PatsNation #steelersvspatriots

I’m streaming the game through Hulu sports for the first time and it’s run absolutely perfect. No glitches or problems whatsoever. Thank you, @hulu

can we see amber becoming a better waitress so we can see that she can grow from what she was, and even if that job was for her financial issues, it can show that she’s grown stronger since those problems #DisneyBringBackAndiMack @hulu @DisneyChannel @DisneyChannelPR

#DisneyBringBackAndiMack @hulu @DisneyChannel @Disney @disneyplus Because there isn't anything wrong with us simply because we're LGBTQ+, a certain gender, a race other than white, or because we may deal with learning disabilities, money problems, anxiety, teen pregnancy or more.

Me: Let's not repeat what Daddy says when are watching football. Mostly due to Hulu problems but sometimes our defense too...

Anyone with @hulu having problems with "location services" on the app? It says I don't have my location on, but I do and the app has permission to access it. #techhelp

I have problems staying committed to one Netflix or Hulu show

Comedian @WeeMissBea, creator of @hulu's "This Way Up," stops by the studio to discuss standup, privacy and having a fictional character deal with problems for her on this week's #Adulting. Listen now:

If there's any rhyme or reason to Hulu's ad strategy there's a lot of women with endometriosis & gambling problems watching anime.

If y’all are having problems signing in, use this trick. Doesn’t let you play any games but Hulu and Netflix work…

first world problems..for some reason the tv in our room no longer supports the hulu app, which means i cant binge watch handmaids tale on my days off anymore. major inconvenience i tell ya.

Is anyone else having streaming issues with #PackersvsBears on @hulu? This happened last season too. A lot of buffering and it only happens during #NFL games.

Spot on: "Let me just say that it wasn’t wise for Netflix, Apple and Facebook to stay away from TCA. Amazon and Hulu did participate and they came off very well..." @PlanetEd spells it out #OnTheVillage.…

#HULUDown again? @hulu @hulu_support why does it keep telling me to check my internet connection. Netflix and Philo are streaming fine on the same device with the same internet connection. Seriously though. I have more #HULUDown tweets than any other tweets! Fix your shit!
