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.
I Am Having The Same Issue As Well, I Either Have To Click On The Next Episode To Play It. Or When The Timer Counts Down Roku Freezes And Automatically Restarts Its self. Very Irritating!!!!!
Day 4 of Hulu not working. I've cancelled it until it gets fixed. The autoplay works only if I fast forward which is dumb. I hope this gets fixed at some point. My netflix autoplays so its definitely a problem with the hulu-roku connection.
