5/31/21 - I'm having the same problem. I go to play a show like usual and it appears to load then goes back to the main screen. I uninstalled the channel, reinstalled it, logged out, logged in and still have the same issue. I can still play shows on Amazon Prime, Food Network channels, etc, so this is NOT a Roku issue. Something is wrong with Hulu. Ugh. Very annoying.
I also have the issue of Hulu not loading. It starts off with program disclaimers, then goes back to the Home Screen for the program I am trying to watch. Doesn’t matter if it’s a movie or series. Netflix and Roku programs work fine. I noticed this last week, but am not sure when the issue could have first started. I have a Roku 2, model # 2720X, serial # 1RG49H007526.
I have deleted Hulu, then reinstalled Hulu, restarted Roku, but this has not worked.
Same issue here. I was chatting online with Hulu, for way too long, and went through all their steps and nothing worked. I uninstalled Hulu, restarted the Roku, and then reinstalled Hulu and it still isn't working.
