Deep link tester not working for Hulu



I use rokus deep link Tester to open Hulu . Since yesterday the deep links to shows and movies don’t go to the show it just shows the Hulu main home screen. 

Netflix also takes a while to open some titles when using deep links sometimes up to 5 minutes . 

itvalways used to work fine till 2 days ago

Re: Deep link tester not working for Hulu



Did you get this issue resolved? I'm having the same issue as well. It's super weird, Hulu deep linking was working fine for a long time but stopped all of the sudden. 


Does anyone know if this is attributed to Hulu app/product or Roku os/product

Re: Deep link tester not working for Hulu

According to Roku docs:

Avoid deep linking into other channels: A channel may not deep link into third-party channels.

I read that to mean that you can't deep link to any channel that is not owned by you. Maybe they've just gotten around to disabling it or something.
