Deep link tester not working for Hulu

Hi 

 

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

Hey,

 

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.
