A Comprehensive Guide to the Common Hulu Problems And their Solutions

There are different Hulu error codes, probably dozens of them, and each of them indicates an issue with either your internet connection, or your device, or they may be some kind of hardware issue.

Hulu not working properly is not uncommon, and in most cases, users wonder what to do in order to resolve the issues and get back to watching what they were. So, keeping these factors in mind, here, we have come up with the most common problems with Hulu. Refer to this article as a guide to solve the issues with Hulu not working correctly on your device.

How To Fix Hulu Streaming Issues?

If you are encountering streaming problems on your Hulu account, then the first thing you need to check is whether you have enough speed to stream Hulu. It requires a minimum of 1.5 Mbps download speed for SD resolution. For 720p HD, the required speed is 3 Mbps, and for 1080p HD, and 4K Ultra HD, it is 6Mbps and 13 Mbps respectively.
The next thing you should do is check your router and modem connections. Follow these steps to check your network connections and ensure the smooth functioning of Hulu:

  1. First, perform a restart of your devices, such as iPhone, Smart TV, or game console, on which you are running Hulu. 
  2. Next, restart your router and then your modem.
  3. Check the location of your WiFi. For example, your device may be far away from it thus not receiving a proper signal, or cluster of items in your home is blocking the signal from reaching your device.

If your Hulu streaming issues are still not resolved, you can try plugging your device directly to your modem with an ethernet cable to see if that resolves the streaming problems of Hulu. If it does, then perhaps the issue is with your router, and you should consider changing it.

Make sure you aren’t using the wrong type of connection for your monitor.
