Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
I’ve noticed that with my streaming stick+ that autoplay seems to work for shows for which I haven’t reset the watch history. I haven’t tried it yet with my older models. I should be watching more hulu shows tomorrow so I’ll update if anything changes.
I wish they'd go back to the previous update because all of the issues started when Hulu and Roku updated. The updates always cause a problem. Previous to this, the episodes would play from the end credits and wouldn't be fixed even if I deleted the watch history. A problem always follows the updates.
Thanks for continuing to share your reports here. This was an issue in the Hulu channel (app) that has now been resolved.
Hulu just published an updated version of their channel (app) that should address the issue you were seeing. Please visit Settings>System>System update>Check now and perform a system update.
If an update to Hulu isn't automatically found, go ahead and remove the Hulu channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key, and choosing 'Remove channel. Then, restart your player from Settings>System>System restart. Once your device restarts, go to 'Streaming channels' from the home screen, search for Hulu and add it to your device once more.
Keep us posted from there! If you still encounter an issue after the update, you'll need to contact Hulu support to report the issue and request additional assistance. We can help pass along any additional feedback, but channel-specific issues will need to be addressed by the channel provider and may require an update to their channel.
This solution worked for a short time for me, now as of tonight, I'm back to it crashing every time it tries to load the next episode. Tried updating, removing app, restarting roku. No luck. Every episode will go to a black screen rather than starting the next via auto play, it then freezes, and completely restarts the roku device.
My auto play still hasn’t worked, but only when my screen is minimized on my device. Say I’m doing homework on my iPad and I’m logged out of Hulu but the mini screen at the corner is still playing my show, it doesn’t play the next episode of any of my shows. It’s been broken for months now. Whenever I play an episode of a show, I expect it to go to the next episode, but nothing. It’s really making me dislike Hulu. I’ve checked the settings and autoplay is on. The Hulu app has gone through its most recent update too. Can you please help me with this so that I can go go back to watching my favorite shows?
I've factory reset my Roku as well and autoplay is still not working properly on my Roku 4. I have a Roku TV that works fine. The 4 will autoplay one episode and freeze at the 1 counter until you manually select the next episode. No problem with other apps!
