  1. Eliminate shows from Lineup

    Firstly, I’d like to say that the new Hulu on the 4th gen Apple TV is a pretty decent experience. Far better than Sling, much more polished and way better at tracking watched shows which seems obvious but Sling taught me not to take that for granted.

    The Lineup: The shows on there make no sense to me. I watch no sports but they are on there. You guys really want me to watch Superstore and Bob’s Burgers. I don’t want to watch any of them and there’s no tool to remove them. Please fix.

    Thanks,
    Dan

  2. Ignore a show

    We need an option to choose "never suggest this show." Hulu constantly tries to auto-play a show that I have NO interest in watching next. I remove the same show over and over from up next and every time and it keeps coming back. Give your users the right to downvote or remove something they have no interest in starting automatically after a show.

  3. Thumbs up/thumbs down

    Since the ‘stop suggesting’ feature doesn’t work, how about a thumbs up/thumbs down rating system? This way Hulu can learn what we DO like as well as what we don’t want to watch. It would make suggestions more accurate than just a stop suggesting option. I know I have watched multiple shows that I didn’t like and now Hulu is basing suggestions off of it. If I could let Hulu know I didn’t like the show I just watched it could keep it from recommending shows based off it.

  4. Put the remove show from watchlist back!

    There are multiple shows from autoplay and having others watch on my tv that I do not want to watch and I do not understand why this option was ever taken away. Adding profiles was great but I still want to keep my shows/movies organized!

  5. Separating watch history on Hulu and Hulu live

    I do like how easy it is to get from Hulu to live but I find it extremely annoying when I watch live and a show comes on I don't watch and change channels, only to see that show on my watch history. I get the idea behind them all being there and the logic is there but it buries the shows I'm currently watching on Hulu and I spend too long just erasing shows from live on the watch history.

    It would be a cleaner idea to separate Hulu history and Hulu live history, maybe make the Hulu live…

  6. "Not Interested" broken

    Why is it when I choose the "not interested" option for a show that is terrible, and I will never, ever watch -- inside amy schumer is a perfect example -- and when I open the queue for the list of shows, that very same show that I said I am not interested in is BACK on my queue!
    I seriously can't stand looking at amy schumer's stupid picture for her show, american dad, or family guy -- I didn't capitalize the names because those shows are garbage.

    PLEASE HULU FIX THIS BEFORE MY EYES BLIND FROM STUPIDITY SENSORY OVERDOSE!!!!!! …

  8. Content rating star system

    Is there was a way to rate content (the star system) as you watch on device or via app, and if so why is it so hard to find and use?
    The star rating system needs to be more accessible across the platform to designate content you enjoy or dislike.
    Also, when rating content online via the Hulu website, it would help if the rating was saved or populated a list playlist based on stars you gave. As of right now, the ratings don't seem to stick or impact cwatch recommendations in a notable way.

  9. Watchlist needs to not Autoplay "Suggested Shows" - revert back to to home screen

    Users should be allowed to be on "Autoplay" and not have a show that they are not interested in start to play.. When a show on your watchlist ends, HULU needs to revert to the home screen to pick another show. Automatically making me watch BROAD CITY is infuriating. Then, on top of that, my ROKU TV and the website have never let me remove a show from the watchlist (aka, I am stuck with BROAD CITY on my watchlist forever). Not ever. Cannot do this option at all from ROKU and when its deselected on the website, the show…

  10. Bring Back Item Removal

    The new site layout has needlessly removed both the option of "Not Interested" for titles and the option to remove items from my "Keep Watching" list. I consider these to be strict downgrades in functionality -the exact issue that Netflix has suffered from for ages. I would appreciate their return.

  11. Ignore or block option by channel or category would be helpful.

    I know this is redundant, but I have upvoted for similar posts as well. There are very few things that I don't care about, but Sports and celebrities are I definition in my top 10. Part of the reason I dumped cable for Hulu is the sports focus and even a sports franchise fee on the monthly bill. I am new to Hulu live TV and I commend you for giving us the option to "cut the cable". I will likely stay with you for a long time. Please keep expanding the lineup and providing more diverse content! For me…

  13. The evil "autoplay" setting.

    When moving to the "new" web site, please carry forward the "autoplay" setting.

  14. Top Picks For You Show Removal Option

    I would really like to be able to have the option to delete/remove any shows that Hulu has picked for me to watch next on “Top Picks For You” but it seems there is no way to do that. There’s a show on here I have zero desire (and looks creepy so isn’t pleasing to see on my screen) to watch and no matter what I do, can’t seem to even request t to be removed from my screen. I spoke with someone at Hulu via phone and asked her to view why this keeps being suggested to me especially…

    Your "Not Interested" option doesn't work. I've marked dozens of shows & films "Not Interested" yet they still show up as "Recommendations for You."
    FIX YOUR ALGORITHM! I'm sick of seeing garbage programming listed as something Hulu thinks I like.

  16. No more froning

    Froning has been stuck in popular movie clips for months and I have to look at that ******* every time I want to see the recently added items on Hulu because that list is just below popular movie clips. I don’t know who he is, I don’t care who he is. I don’t want to nor will I ever watch anything froning related. Please improve whatever non existent algorithm that populated that list to omit anything and everything froning related. It really bums me out.

  17. Allow me to remove unwatched content that I was never interested in from front page

    The top scrolling bar of shows should have shows and movies I am already watching featured. Instead it is a hodgepodge of shows I would never and have never watched on Hulu. Would really like it if there was an option to "thumbs down" a piece of content. Other streaming services have this. The new UI is hard to navigate and annoying to look at.

  18. Autoplay does shoes on my list

    Why can't autoplay play unwatched shows on my list and not garbage shows I don't want because they would BE ON MY LIST

  19. open to specific account and channel

    How do I open hulu to a specific favorite channel? For example, when I open hulu I have to select the specific account and then I have to select a channel. I would like to open hulu and it already recognizes my account and it opens a specific channel?

  20. Stop Prioritizing your recommendations above my chosen queue

    I've noticed that Hulu now prioritizes recommendations above unseen NEW episodes on my watch list.

    Historically, recommendations came after my shows, specifically when I had nothing left.

    If you must continue to promote your content, please do so after my chosen list. Not before, or mixed in.
