Can't Access Hulu - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

I called the customer support and was told the wait was 18 minutes on a Sunday night at 9:50 p.m. EST. I left a message to call me back. Wonder if that will ever happen. VERY UNHAPPY RIGHT NOW! Plus, can't believe I am paying for a service that forces me to watch commercials. Ready to cancel if I can access my account in order to do it.

For the past week or so my huku account has been having the issue where it will play the audio portion for the show but no actual video is visible. Normally when I would go to reload it, it would then fix itself. But as of today no matter how many times I delete, reinstall, reload, etc., the video refuses to come on and I'm left with only audio. I'm paying for this so why hasn't this issue been resolved?!

Paul Laimal-Convoy · 10 December 2015 - 10:45

I can confirm that on both the PS3 and on the android app, the service was show to load the menu icons, themenu itself and not one show played correctly. Just a stuttery mess. HULU is basically useless and broken right now, especially for the last 2 days.

My Hulu plays just fine. It like 10 seconds or sooner into the show it is on a 2-3 second repeat of where ever it happen to be during the show and just does the same stuff over and over but yet the sub titles and audio is working as if it didn't freeze or repeat the audio over and over? Is anyone else having this problem or any solution to fix it? First problem I've had with Hulu ever....
