A number of Hulu subscribers are having trouble watching programs via the streaming service. The users report that there is a problem with the application on iOS, iPadOS and tvOS versions.
What is really the problem with Hulu?
the problem with the Hulu service began Tuesday morning at around 4:30 Eastern Time. A post on Reddit’s r / Hulu forum highlighted a sudden spike in problems for the application, an incident that was also recorded by DownDetector and seems to have escalated over the hours.
So far, reports indicate that most of the downtime occurs for those using Apple devices, including iPhones, iPad, and Apple TV. Complaints include cases where the application crashes when opening, as well as problems with delivery when the application is running normally.
Frustrated Hulu users took to social media to complain about the streaming service is down, and the hashtag #huludown is even trending on Twitter.
Not all complaints are related to the Apple ecosystem, but also a smaller number of incidents on other platforms.
According to Engadget, one user contacted Hulu’s support teams about the issues and was informed that an application update was underway to resolve the problem. While it is not clear what the problem is, the claim suggests that the error involves changes made to Hulu’s servers that should have been made at the same time as an application update was released.
It is also plausible that Hulu could fix the crashes by returning any server-side changes to an earlier state, and then restoring the changes after the iOS and tvOS applications are released.
AppleInsider has contacted Hulu about the issues and will update this message if there is a response.
