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 am experiencing many many issues with hulu + (which I uses to hold to the same regards as netflix) first off they give two Comercial breaks at the very beginning and one right after the theme song. May I also bring up that each and every commercial break plays through seemlessly however, once the commercial stops it will buffer almost emediatly! Then stop ten seconds will pass and lone behold it buffers again! And again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again until it completely takes all the emotion out of what I was watching and when it isn't buffering it fast forwards all on its own, but wait ladies and gentlemen there is more once it fast forwards an entire scene and a half it starts buffering and it's a never ending buffer! I don't get why when I pay for a service they would still be a commercial break but I am done making hulus pockets even fatter, have fun with your eternal buffers but when I want to watch TV that is exactly what I want to do. I do not want to watch a grey circle wheel around on the screen. So I gave up on watching full Metal after months and months of these issues I deleted hulu from my Xbox and now j am back on Netflix. :)

I have a Panasonic smart tv. Nothing has changed, all updates current, and I have fast internet. Hulu plays everything just fine until it's time to load the program. Then, It's just the station logo & darkness. I just tried unlinking all my accounts and then relinking. It started working again... through 2 commercial breaks & then it was back to the same issue.

I dont have a firewall set up or any proxys that would interfere... any suggestions. This is what I get for 3 days!!?? :

The connection was reset. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
