For all those Hulu streaming users, who own Vizio and other brands for streaming, this news may disappoint you for a while which we are going to share with you in this post. The news is related to Hulu app. The Hulu app will soon be going to stop its services on some of the Vizio models.
If you are using a Samsung phone, then there are chances of getting this same problem on your device. Let’s find out what this actually is and who is going to be affected by this Hulu decision. For more updates, we recommend you to stay tuned to the Hulu official support page.
Symptoms of this problem: The Hulu app will keep on logging out of the Vizio TV. When you log in again, it will ask you to enter device activation code or you will find ‘Loading’ on the screen. When you press ‘Login’ button, you will find ‘Waiting’ message when you enter login id and password. It doesn’t matter how many times you have tried this same operation.
On the other hand, if you have installed YouTube, Amazon, and Netflix on your device, then you can easily stream the content without any issue. The problem is with the Hulu app only.
Some of the users have even tried to contact Hulu support but didn’t get a fruitful answer. According to the solution told by Hulu team, you are required to log out of the app and uninstall it from the device. Wait for a minute and install the Hulu app again. Now before starting watching the content, you must reset your device so as to remove the old files from its registry. For this, Press the Reset button from the back of the device and reset your device. Despite performing these functions, users didn’t get satisfied results. When they called Hulu again, the company officials said that there is a problem with the Hulu app and they are looking into the matter so as to solve the problem at the earliest.
Now, in the recent news, Hulu apologized for the problem and said that all Vizio TV users who are using the obsolete version of Vizio app won’t be able to upgrade this app due to built-in version, so we are sorry to say that Hulu will no longer work on their TV’s. They suggested that if you want to watch Hulu, then you have to purchase the media streaming players like Roku, Chromecast or fire TV. These media streaming players will let you watch Hulu and Hulu on demand.
Some of the users are getting upset with this move but they have left with no other option than to purchase a new device. Some users said they have purchased the device just a year ago and now it has become dumb, so it is totally a burden on my pocket.
If we were you, we would definitely report our dissatisfaction to Hulu and ask for money return. If you want to report the same thing to Hulu, then go to Hulu plus and click on the top right of the window. You will even find a contact number there. You can speak to the customer support.
