Hulu without playback, Hulu unaware of issue.

Contacted Hulu July 2nd & 6th after their recent update of Sharp Roku TV and Roku Express (v. 6.32). Hulu won’t play any programming, Live or On Demand. Hulu will launch and you can select the program you want to watch, but the app crashes during the loading process and brings you back to the home screen. All other apps work fine on both devices. Spoke with two Hulu Customer Service reps and did all of the possible troubleshooting. I even factory reset the Roku Express and Hulu will not play. Does anyone else have the same issue? I will be calling Hulu again tomorrow to suspend my account. They were nice enough to give me a substantial credit to my account, but I really only use Hulu on our Roku TV.

Re: Hulu without playback, Hulu unaware of issue.


Thanks for the information.

We would recommend continue to work with Hulu support for further assistance with your issue. If other channels are working correctly, and you only experience this issue on the Hulu channel (app), that is likely an indication that the issue lies within that particular channel. In these cases, the channel provider will need to investigate the issue in order to help resolve it.  

Please keep us posted.
