Jump to solution

Hi Sir/Ma’am,

It just started today that whenever I sign in to hulu, after scrolling down after to Continue watching, it goes back to the Roku home screen.

please help. I already called hulu and they said to contact Roku because we did system restart and uninstall/install hulu and there’s no changes at all.

here are the information:

Roku device model 3920X - Roku Premiere

Serial number YHOOEV143035

Device id K430CE143035

Software OS/version 11.0.0 build 4193-91

Hulu version 6.61 build 0

thank you. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the posts.

We appreciate your patience while we worked with the channel provider to investigate the issue. We believe the issue is now resolved.

We would recommend checking to see if the issue you were experiencing is still occurring.

Please keep us posted what you find out.


Thanks,
Danny

Hey @Riocielo

Thanks for letting us know about the issue you're experiencing.

Did you restart your Roku device before reinstalling the channel? That step is crucial when performing the troubleshooting. If you haven't tried the suggested order (remove > restart > reinstall), we would recommend giving it a shot once again. We also suggest doing the restart from the Settings menu by navigating to Settings > System > Power (If you do not see a Power submenu, skip to the next step.) > System restart.

For detailed instructions, refer to this Support link: How do I resolve channel playback issues?

Let us know if there's any difference after.


All the best,
Kariza

@Riocielo

Thanks for the prompt response.

Have you checked other channels if the same issue occurs? Also, could you tell us how are you powering your Roku device? Is it connected to the USB port of the TV or to a wall outlet? In some cases, the USB power provided by the TV is not sufficient to power the device. Even though your Roku device may appear to be working, running with insufficient power can lead to instability, crashing, and other unpredictable behavior.

Using the included power cord and power adapter, we suggest plugging your Roku into a working power outlet in the wall. Powering it through a power outlet in the wall has the additional advantage that your Roku player will not need to power up every time you turn on your TV. This means your Roku player will be up and running faster than it would be connected to a TV.

Keep us posted!


All the best,
Kariza

Thank you for responding.

Only hulu is the one messing up. All other streaming programs like netflix, disney plus, discovery plus, tubi, peacock, etc are all doing fine.

Now I just did what you told me about plugging the Roku into the wall outlet. And then I repeated the remove-restart-reinstall but theres still no difference.

I don’t know what’s wrong with it 🤷🏻‍♀️

I'm having the same problem with Hulu. When I arrow down to "continue watching," it crashes back to the home screen.

But there's more to the story. Things were fine earlier this evening. Watched a program on Paramount+ with no problem. Then tried to watch something on Hoopla, but got an HDCP error. Then poked around on another channel and got another HDCP error. Pretty sure we also saw the Hulu problem at that point.

So unplugged the Roku from the TV and plugged it back in. The HDCP error went away, but since then, trying to watch on Hoopla crashes out, and Hulu is giving the behavior above.

I unplugged the Roku from the TV again, this time unplugging the USB as well. Replugged, but the problem persists. I tried a restart of the Roku. Still persists.

Details:

Model 3810X - Roku Streaming Stick

Software version 11.0.0 build 4193-50
