    • Hey Chase, just clear data of the app by going into Settings, Applications, Manage Installed Applications, Hulu, and Clear Data. Now, connected to the US server and then try Hulu app again, It will work.

      • Tried this a dozen times. Does not work. Only makes you re-type your email and password over again and afterwards continues to say “enable location services” without any way out

        • Hey Chris, we saw that Surfshark VPN is causing some problems with Hulu so we checked NordVPN and its working. So we would recommend you to use NordVPN instead. Let us know your experience once you use it.

    Hi there,
    It says my internet connection is weak and therefore cannot stream or load anything, when that isn’t the case, my internet runs at 150MB per second. I’ve cleared the data but that does nothing. What do I do?

  8. Sorry. This does not work.

    • Did you try connecting to the US sever before installing Hulu?

PLEASE HELP

I have a Amazon fire stick in UK, successfully followed your instructions to get Hulu, all work fine for months but Hulu app says I need to update it, I followed your instructions but it doesn’t give me an option to update and it has not updated automatically. It is saying goggle play is not available on my device ( firestick ) Please could you help ?

I have been having a hectic time so I forgot to check back to see if you had replied – that’s why there has been a time lag in me letting you know as I only found your message tonight believe it or not but I did what you suggested immediately 😊

  11. Hi again! my TV ( sony bravia ) updated itself last week and since then Hulu logged me out, I’m getting that old message I had before saying goggle play isn’t available on your device ( Amazon Firestick ) and I can’t log back in. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling app but I am getting 406 error now when I try and log in. Also for a long time now, even before all this happened – although I have been able log in to view programes on Hulu app on my TV I have been unable to look up my account details – as when I try to log in and do this – it won’t let me and says my account is blocked, I think this happened when I put in the wrong password twice by mistake but not sure. Have tried re setting password but using the same one – but no joy. Any ideas would be really appreciated as I still have a paid account and can’t now watch or cancel. Thank you
