  3. Please do not record shows/movies just because they are on "My List".

    I add shows/movies to "My List" because I want to watch them sometime in the future. Most of the things I add, however, are in Hulu's on demand library or the on demand library of a premium channel I subscribe to. I don't want Hardcore Henry recording every time it airs on live tv. Please add a "Record series", "Record episode/movie", or simply an "Add to my list" option that doesn't record it if we can ********* demand. The way it is set up now just makes it seem like you are trying to go out of your way to…

  4. Buffering bad

    First off, you're charging for Beta, I have never heard of any software company charging for Beta. Secondly, streaming services are not new, whats the problem here? The feed buffers, jumps, quality goes up and down. I've had less problems with free sites and Hulu wants $40 for this? You've got some work to do before this will be worth paying anything for.

  6. The Hulu UI is among the worst I have ever seen. Especially when using Hulu Live. Please fix this.

    The Hulu UI is among the worst I have ever seen. Especially when using Hulu Live. Please fix this. Sling has a cleaner UI, and that's plain embarrassing. Your service is great, but if I can't figure out how to USE it... well... why would I stay?

    It's the NBA playoffs now, if I go to the NBA tab you show me the Rockets game... it doesn't air until tomorrow while the Warriors/Spurs game is live. Your UI/UX team should be ashamed of themselves

  8. Allow customization of channel order / present channels in order of most recently watched

    When watching live TV on a television (using a Roku), when you toggle to the channel lineup (by pressing the down button on the Roku remote), the channels appear in alphabetical order. It takes a long time to scroll to the channels at the back of the alphabet. I would like to be able to customize the order so that I can put the channels I watch frequently at the far left of the menu. If I am flipping back and forth between, for example, NBC and TNT, it’s a lot of scrolling. Another idea, as an alternative if allowing…

  9. How about a LIVE TV schedule?

    I need to see a live TV schedule that shows future shows - not just what is currently on. And I need to be able to set it to record those future live programs. Actually, this seems ESSENTIAL, not just something I'd LIKE to see.

  11. Report beta issues

    Understanding that the live tv service is in beta is there a place to report issues to assist with the beta? I have noticed that recordings will occasionally skip a few seconds of a program. I have tried rewinding and the skip is in the same place so I believe the recording itself is the problem

  12. Hulu live tv doesn’t work improve or dismantle

    I pay good money for Hulu tv with no commercials but every single show has ridiculous amount of ads and I can not watch any of the shows due to buffering and then it will cut the audio out and ultimately cut parts out of the show out when my internet is running well over a 100 mps and all my other services such as Netflix and YouTube red work perfectly fine but better believe every single ad will work perfectly fine go figure Hulu values theirs ads playtime more then their owns shows and Hulu’s customers feedback

  15. Improve Your Streaming Quality

    The sole reason I subscribed to Hulu Plus was to watch the NBA playoffs and local sports. I cannot adequately describe how frustrating of an experience this has been. I have commercial grade internet speed and did not expect this level of buffering and quality issues. How can you charge for this? How has other streaming services figured this out and Hulu has not? There is input all over this forum with same issues and you have been unable to resolve a known issue? I will be canceling and advising anyone who will listen to go elsewhere for streaming services.

  16. Fix live tv streaming issues or I'm gone.

    Hulu says they have been "working on it" for a very long time now with no results. 30 minute wait on phone and chat. Unacceptable. I have Sling with no issues whatsoever and a better guide. Unfortunately, Hulu has more channels I want, but it's not worth the frustration of horrible live streaming. Since I can't get in contact with Hulu (unless I want to waste 30 minutes of my life) let me know on here or I'm canceling and sticking with Sling. And please don't respond with "working on it".

  17. How Can Hulu Even Begin To Think They Should Charge For "Beta" Software, Especially as Buggy As This Is? (Follow-Up)

    Wow...I signed up for a Sling TV account & installed the channel on my Roku DVP...the difference is Night vs. Day!

    Their interface is simple, pleasing to the eye, not all "busy" and jumbled-up, and --most importantly, of course-- it works flawlessly! I have been running their "Sling Blue" package + their "News Extra" and watching MSNBC for over 3 hours now without a single hitch. I would have had dozens upon dozens of re-buffers in that same time period, watching the same content, on Hulu Live TV.

    The facts speak for themselves on this one...

    Hulu: Go get 10…

  19. Big Improvement!

    I hope that others are having the same experience. The last 3 days I've had very, very minimal issues with Hulu Live. It has been really stable!!!!!.

  20. Add a way for customers to vote on new channels they would like to see

    It would be nice to have a way for users to vote on new channels they would like to see added to the Live TV lineup. If there were a listing of channels not currently in the lineup and users could go in and vote for channels they’d like to see added or request that channels be added.
