Check If Your Device Is Supported

After Hulu crashed on my new device, I was ready to switch to another streaming platform. Upon investigating device compatibility on the Hulu Help Center, I discovered that my new device was not included in the list of supported devices. Consequently, I suggest you verify the compatibility of your device, too. If it’s not supported, consider switching to a compatible device or using a PC to access Hulu through alternative platforms such as Microsoft Edge.

Logout All Other Devices Connected To Hulu

A colleague suggested a fast solution that worked for him – log out of all Hulu-connected devices. Try this method if you’re experiencing issues, as multiple connected devices could be the cause.

Here are the steps to log out other devices connected to Hulu:

  1. Login: Login to Hulu by entering your username and password.

Force Stop And Reopen Hulu

Many device manufacturers recommend forcefully closing the app in case of malfunctions or unresponsiveness. Therefore, if Hulu freezes or crashes upon opening, I recommend that you force-quit it.

Here are the steps:

Android Users

  1. Force stop option: Navigate to Settings > Apps & notifications > See All Apps (or App info) > Select Hulu app > Force stop > OK.
    Force stop Hulu on Android

Final Verdict

I suggest you check whether the VPN is set to a U.S. server, clear your browser cache and cookies, and try different VPN servers If Hulu isn’t working. An outdated Hulu app, temporary server glitches, or issues with the VPN may cause this error. Additionally, generic fixes may work, but disabling or changing VPN servers is a potential solution. I recommend you contact Hulu’s customer support if troubleshooting methods are not working.
