Hulu is an online streaming platform. It increased its monthly subscription recently to $70 per month for Hulu Plus, Disney, and ESPN. With this much increase in the subscription price, the audience was almost on the verge of canceling their subscription. One also tweeted that maybe they should go back to cable tv as it is much cheaper now.
Even with this much price increase, Hulu was unable to offer some quality service. Hulu’s servers were down worldwide on June 21, 2022. Over 6,000 reports were taken by downdetecor. So, if you are wondering if the problem is in your internet, pc, laptop, or mobile phone, don’t worry, the problem is with Hulu’s server.
WHAT HAPPENED TO HULU?
The users of Hulu have reported problems with streaming the videos online. Some were also having problems with opening the app. The app was allowing them to click on the icon, but not log in. It used to buffer for a few seconds and then go back to the mobile’s home screen.
People also reported problems with playing any content, even DVR recordings and live streams.
This usually happens because of a server error.
WHY DOES IT HAPPEN?
This happened because a large number of people were trying to use the app at the same time. Hulu’s server was not ready to take that much load and allow everyone’s request and it crashed. Generally, in this case, reloading the site or visiting it after some time works but that didn’t work either for Hulu.
IS IT BACK YET?
Some reported that they can use the app now but some still couldn’t. The app is online again but they are still facing some problems.
Hulu has made sure that they are working on it.
Angry customers were outraged on the internet. Hulu confirmed on its YouTube channel that they are down. Twitter was flooded with negative reviews about the services of Hulu.
Some commented that it is a very bad streaming app as they have recently hiked the price so much.
Another said that one more reason added to stop using the app.
Hulu is an American online streaming service. Walt Disney owns 67% of the company’s share. Comcast (through NBC Universal) owns 33% of the company.
You cannot use them without registration and subscription. It was launched in October 2007.
In 2010, Hulu turned into the primary web-based feature to add “In addition to” to its name when it sent off a membership administration, at first marked as Hulu Plus, which highlighted full times of projects from the organizations and different accomplices, and undelayedly admittance to new episodes. In 2017, the organization sent off Hulu with Live TV — a beyond preposterous live TV administration highlighting straight TV stations.
