ESPN+ Not Working With Hulu Bundle [FIXED]

Server outages, faulty internet connections, and more may cause ESPN+ not to work with the Hulu bundle. Learn about how you can make ESPN+ work with the Hulu bundle again.

Many users encounter the issue “ESPN+ Not Working With Hulu Bundle.” These issues range from server malfunctions and poor internet connectivity to compatibility problems and subscription-related concerns. I am here to sort out these problems with my easy-to-follow guide.

Key Takeaways

  • The ESPN+ may not work with the Hulu bundle due to server outages, faulty internet connection, using an incompatible device, and more.
  • You can fix the issue by updating your device and the Hulu app, ensuring that your bundle includes ESPN+, power cycling the internet, etc.
  • ESPN+ and Hulu cannot be accessed in many regions, so ensure that your location matches the supported list of countries.

I suggest you give these straightforward alterations a shot before tackling complex solutions:

  1. Check Internet
  2. Restart Router
  3. Check Server Status
  4. Restart Hulu App
  5. Update System
  6. Update Hulu App

Re-login To Your Account

In my testing, signing out of your Hulu account eliminates this trouble. Wait for a minute before you log back in. Doing this will clear any temporary glitches in your profile that may hinder the proper running of ESPN+ on Hulu.

Check The Status Of Your Hulu Bundle

It may be possible that you omitted ESPN+ in your Hulu bundle. You must make a separate purchase for ESPN+ to make a Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ bundle. Therefore, ensure that you have purchased the right plan that consists of ESPN+.

  1. Head over to the Hulu website.
  2. Press the Log-in option at the top-right edge.

Inspect Your ESPN+ Add-On

See if the ESPN+ on Hulu price package is still active. You cannot stream content if the add-on has expired or the company has canceled it. If your ESPN+ add-on in the Disney+ or Hulu bundle was canceled without your approval, refer to Hulu’s help and ask the customer support team about the situation. One of my team members faced this issue, which was fixed by activating the package again. This simple fix worked for many users on Reddit.

Use A Compatible Device

Device incompatibility is one of the many reasons why you cannot stream live sports on ESPN+. I suggest you log in to your Hulu account on another device, such as a smartphone or smart TV, and see if the bundle works.

Ensure That The Bundle Is Available In Your Country

As of January 2023, ESPN+ services are still not supported in many countries. In addition, Hulu is limited to the United States and Japan. So, if your virtual location is set in any country other than these two, you cannot access the Hulu + Live TV Bundle or the Disney Plus Bundle, which includes ESPN+.

Final Verdict

In my testing, outdated systems can contribute to such glitches, so checking for updates might help. Generic fixes may work, but you must sign up for the Hulu+ TV Live Bundle or the Trio Bundle (ESPN+, Hulu, Disney+) to run ESPN+ on Hulu. A separate ESPN+ subscription will not work on the Hulu network, and this is a potential fix for this problem.

When nothing works, I suggest you contact Hulu’s help and explain your problem to a support agent. Apart from this, you can post your queries on the Hulu community to get help from fellow users.
