  1. Get better streaming

    The live streaming is terrible. My screen constantly freezes, speeds up, and ruins any sports I watch. Please fix this or I will be forced to go to sling.

  5. keyboard shortcuts

    I need the ability to hit spacebar or left mouse click to pause a video. Also need to have volume control via arrow 'up/down'. 'Regular' hulu videos allow this. As do the majority of internet streaming platforms.

  6. Restart button for ALL apps

    There is a "restart episode from the beginning" option in other versions of the app on an older smart tv I have, but on my new Samsung Smart tv, the rewind function doesn't always work. Please make a restart episode for ALL APPS

  7. Enable Live TV in Hulu app on Tivo

    Please enable live TV viewing in the Hulu app on TiVO. Being able to watch NBC Sports Bay Area live on TiVO is the only reason that I signed up for Hulu. It's not accessible from there so....

  8. Add the ability to record new episodes, all airings or just add to my shows without recording

    On the Apple TV, iPhone and iPad I can set up the Hulu interface to either record all airings, new episodes or even not record anything but add it to my shows. This is not an option on the browser yet

  9. I really don’t like the ad experience

    Hello,
    I’m truly irritated with the ad experience. I’m always seeing parmacetical advertisements. Tried to change on ad preference setting, but still the same ads.

    Please fix this before I’m canceling my subscription.

    Thank you!

  10. windows 10

    We need a updated windows 10 app! Every other video streaming service has an app that continues to be updated on windows 10.

  11. Please put the DVR link on the home page.

    Why is it so difficult to get to the DVR page?

  12. HBO Support for Hulu Browser

    I would like to watch HBO Premium on my Hulu browser rather than via an application. Why is this still not available?!

  13. 32 trackers when viewing on PC???

    Since there seems to be no way to email support, I've had some "problem" messages pop up when viewing shows on my Win10 PC - telling me to turn off AdBlocker. Well, I don't use that in Chrome, but I do use the DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension. So I checked it while a show was running, and were 32 tracker networks hooked in. Is that really necessary for your profit model? (How does Netflix do it?)

  14. The UI

    When watching live tv on a PC or any other device you guys should add a LIVE button by pause, rewind, and fast forward. This would make it a lot easier that it currently is on PC where you pretty much have to click and drag the button to the live spot after pausing your program.

  16. Revert Live account to No Commercials when away from home

    Since streaming rights are an issue with Hulu LIve when away from home when used with Fire/Apple TV devices (though that makes little sense to me considering they are just computers), there needs to be an option to revert to the No Commercials plan when away from home. I travel often and take my Fire TV with me. I also work/live with a family who has vacation homes. I sign into my Hulu account when living at those homes but now that I've decided to pay more for Hulu Live, I'm not able to use the service unless I'm at…

  17. You took away airplay monitoring compatibility and now the app is useless to me. I canceled my account today as a result. Bring back airplay

    My Internet connection is unlimited streaming on my ipad and airplay monitoring to my apple tv. If I play over apple tv directly I'm limited to 10GB per month. Your service is useless to me without airplay compatibility. I canceled my account today after 5 years, which is really heartbreaking.

    The new app is super glitchy, locks up, and plays black screen audio only all the time. Programming is great, but your software is terrible. Ironically, before this "upgrade" you had one of the best, most flawless software suites of all.

    Heartbroken, guys. Seriously, you need to get a different…

  18. Bandwidth options for beta browser and set top boxes

    Please bring video quality setting to the beta web browser and the Apple TV, Lot of people have data caps at home these days so it would be nice to have options to lower quality when needed.

  19. Don't darken the screen when the volume changes.

    When I change volume it darkens the screen for several seconds. HEY, I'm watching something, don't make it less visible. Maybe I could pause and then change volume, but then I'd have to guess about the proper volume setting.

  20. I need confirmation that the account I just tried to cancel is indeed canceled. Service, content and every other aspect of Hulu is worth no

    My new idea is that you improve your service and content, for now is is worth nothing. You cannot even process a cancellation of service with any hint of competence.
