Hulu & Chromecast

Hulu: Watch TV shows, movies & new original series

Tom Allison. June 12, 2021. Thumbs : 11. Review : Latest update results in the following: I can no longer cast from my phone to my Google Chromecast even though they are on the same Wi-Fi network. The error indicates that I am running a VPN. I am not running a VPN on my own home Wi-Fi. Hulu, you need to get your act together.

J. Miles. June 12, 2021. Thumbs : 6. Review : App's great EXCEPT it plays "up next" videos when casting to Chromecast even tho I've turned autoplay off (works fine if playing on device itself [not casting to TV]). Cast it to a TV & it can continue to play for hours. **UPDATE** I have taken *every* step requested—clear caches, un-/re-installs, test app on different devices, power down *everything* (TVs, modems, devices, Chromecast, etc.)—& the software issue remains. It's an easy fix–if the app is casting, don't populate the "up next" queue!

relentless. June 16, 2021. Review : I shouldn't have to pay $50 for a chromecast just to cast to my tv when both my tv and my phone are built for those functions it's a completely unnecessary feature just created to get more money and put dragonball z on there its retarded to just have a whole series missing from a series of shows

Sylvia Estrada. June 23, 2021. Review : I like it but it jumps to another movie same old movies live it up now im having trouble with hulu getting chromecast i've checked internet, my cellphone, and chromcast and everything is good it's hulu

Brandon P. April 29, 2021. Thumbs : 72. Review : The app will no longer cast to my Chromecast, model H2G2-42. It will cast to my other Chromecast, which is a different model. The problem has been going on since the last update, and I can only watch TV on the TV set in one room of my house, now. I know the devs are aware of it, but it's been a week, and they haven't fixed it.

SMDowning Franco. April 26, 2021. Thumbs : 175. Review : Never really had any issues with this app until recently. The past week my app wont cast on my tv from my chromecast. It connects with my chromecast and when I hit play it won't cast on my tv or even play on my phone tablet or laptop. I'm starting to get irritated with it and if it doesn't start working soon I'm canceling my subscription. If I can't stream it then I have no use for it and you've recently raised your prices so its just not worth it for me.

Caddie. April 24, 2021. Thumbs : 39. Review : For some reason I can't get Hulu to cast to my Chromecast. I know for a fact that it's a Hulu issue because every single other app I have plays/casts just fine on the TV, but Hulu will only play on my phone. The second I try to play it on the TV through my Chromecast the video player pops up, then disappears and stops playing. The whole time I'm trying to cast a show or movie, the screen says "Ready to cast" because Hulu connected to Chromecast but will not let anything actually play/cast on it.

++++++++++++++++++

Megan Lutz. April 23, 2021. Thumbs : 159. Review : Worked fine until today. App still works, but can no longer cast to chromecast. Connects, but when I start a show the show doesn't play, just quits and brings me back to a launch menu in app. Still connected to chromecast/ready to cast screen on tv. All other apps able to cast and stream. Have restarted, un/reinstalled phone and app, rebooted chromecast. Think it is a new version of the app. Have been using almost daily, so new issue.

Blanche's Lesbian Lover. April 24, 2021. Thumbs : 69. Review : Thursday, April 22 was the day Hulu died for me. I can't cast any show via Chromecast. This is the first this has happened to me, and Hulu Support has been basically useless...trying to make like it was my problem or internet provider's issue. Literally, every other streaming app I have---Netflix, HBO Max, Disney+, Prime Video---all stream just fine through my Chromecast, like always. Hulu needs to fix their app now!

++++++++++++++++++

Courtney W. May 13, 2021. Thumbs : 37. Review : Past few weeks I'm having issues with shows & movies skipping. The scene will abruptly end and a new scene begins. A conversation will cut off before its over. A character will appear out of nowhere mid-sentence. If i rewind i can then watch the 10-30 seconds of play that was skipped. Using a chromecast and no other app does this. Please figure this out. Rewinding is already a task with all the buffering and freezing. An hour long show is taking like 2 hours to get thru.

lauren malta. April 25, 2021. Thumbs : 8. Review : Would've given Hulu 3-4 maybe 5stars- until now, the 'cast to TV' button disappeared & suddenly can't watch hulu on TV. I've been reading help articles for hours but still no answers (built-in chromecast on tv won't play hulu either). Now I give Hulu 2-3stars. I pay the ad-free $11.99/mo- but it's not worth it unless it's fixed. It's no fun watching on my phone screen at home. I should only have to use mobile when I'm MOBILE! I went thru google reviews, other users have had the same problem.

++++++++++++++++++

Paul Webber. April 30, 2021. Thumbs : 4. Review : DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP IF YOU HAVE AN ANDROID OR IOS DEVICE AND YOU'RE PLANNING TO CAST TO YOUR TV WITH CHROMECAST. TERRIBLE AND EXPENSIVE FOR SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T WORK. USED THE APP FOR SEVERAL MONTHS WITH NO PROBLEM. THEN HULU PUSHED OUT THEIR LATEST VERSION AND NOW DESPITE ALL OF THE SUPPOSED "FIXES" IT WILL NOT CAST. DON'T BE FOOLED! SAVE YOUR MONEY. USE A DIFFERENT APP.

++++++++++++++++++

Mily Lovely. April 28, 2021. Thumbs : 63. Review : This recent bug is frustrating and reaching out to tech support made me feel like Hulu isn't aware of the issue. The app will connect to chromecast but not play anything. This has affected my phone and tablet, restarting the devices, reseting my chromecast, reinstalling the app and force stopping the app has not fixed it. Multiple people have commented on it in the hulu community is the past week so I hope they fix this soon.

++++++++++++++++++

Randi Shen. April 26, 2021. Thumbs : 5. Review : Having the same problem as other people: Hulu won't cast to Chromecast. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and nothing works. It's been several days now. C'mon Hulu, at least acknowledge there's an issue and try to fix it before you lose even more customers.

++++++++++++++++++

Amanda Tatum. April 26, 2021. Thumbs : 3. Review : Casting to Chrome Cast has stopped working. Worked fine up until maybe a week ago. I thought it was a fluke but then tonight again it just will not cast. It shows connected to chromecast but goes back to the home screen when you try to cast anything.

++++++++++++++++++

Marcus B.. April 24, 2021. Thumbs : 9. Review : Hulu not casting to chromecast anymore. Yesterday it was working fine all day trying to cast to my TV it will say ready to cast I pick a show hit the chromecast icon & it flashes back to home page every time while my TV still says ready to cast. I'm paying $$$. Hulu need to resolve this matter...I resetted my router,hulu app,chromecast, everything possible..still same issue..need answers hulu customer service

++++++++++++++++++

Steven Hodges. April 28, 2021. Thumbs : 2. Review : It worked great and then all of a sudden I can't cast to any of my Chromecast devices from the app. It says it's ready and as soon as I hit play on something it closes it out in the app. Please fix!

++++++++++++++++++

Amanda Miles-Graeter. April 29, 2021. Thumbs : 2. Review : Hulu no longer casting to Chromecast. Tomorrow will be a week. The support email is full and bounces back emails. Chat support said they were aware of the issue and were working on it but nothing has changed. No communication. When will this be fixed? I will fix my review to 5 stars when you fix Hulu casting.

++++++++++++++++++

Cory Sexton. April 24, 2021. Thumbs : 11. Review : The app will not cast to my TV using Chromecast. It will say "Ready to cast" on the TV, but the show will not appear. The screen slides down on my phone once I press play and nothing happens. Must be a bug in the code

++++++++++++++++++

Kelly Huerta. April 25, 2021. Thumbs : 5. Review : No problems with the app prior to April 22nd. Will not cast to chromecast. No help from customer service who acted like it was only "user error" and not a problem with their app. I am not the only one having this problem.

++++++++++++++++++

Jai R. April 24, 2021. Thumbs : 4. Review : Garbage!!! I was watching Snowfall using my chromecast just fine then suddenly I am unable to cast any of the shows to my TV from any of my devices! I can cast just fine with HBOMAX and STARZ I got zero assistance with this issue. I will be canceling my subscription at end of the month.

++++++++++++++++++

Zach Heil. May 27, 2021. Thumbs : 2. Review : The I already have HBO and Netflix special. Seriously the worst streaming service, it's constantly crashing and wasting time on my chromecast, which has literally never had issues with anything else.

++++++++++++++++++

A Google user. April 26, 2021. Thumbs : 14. Review : Connects to my Chromecast, and says "Ready to Cast", but will not play any titles. When clicked it clears itself. Netflix, Paramount, Prime, Disney, & YouTube all play. Not a Chromecast error, a Hulu error, but its not being fixed.

++++++++++++++++++

Edward Delgado. April 25, 2021. Thumbs : 4. Review : Same as everyone else. Tried everything to make cast videos but it just stopped working recently. Will show the menu for hulu on my chromecast but as soon as I hit play and cast, it will just take me back to the main menu

++++++++++++++++++

Chris M. April 26, 2021. Thumbs : 4. Review : Not letting me cast to any, I repeat, any of my chromecasts in the house, I'm having issues with two different hardware versions and they are blaming he chromecast, despite everything else under the sun being able to cast, what the hell?

++++++++++++++++++

Dixie Normous. April 22, 2021. Thumbs : 6. Review : I read all the bad reviews but I've been using the app for about 3 or 4 months and have never had an issue with the app. It has been flawless. I use a samsung s21 and cast to a chrome stick. I have a fiber 300gb bandwidth internet speed with a old netgear nighthawk router and I have the no commercial hulu plan.

++++++++++++++++++

nunya business. April 25, 2021. Thumbs : 5. Review : Hulu no longer sends to Chromecast device. Reinstall didn't help. All other apps cast and Hulu plays perfectly on my phone, but when I try to cast it stops and goes to home screen. Please fix this!

++++++++++++++++++

James Wallace. April 29, 2021. Thumbs : 2. Review : Casting to chrome cast hasn't worked for a week! Customer service says its a known issue and they are working on a resolution... really guys? A week? I could understand a day or two, but a week? Get your act together...

++++++++++++++++++

featherwombat 42. April 27, 2021. Thumbs : 1. Review : All of a sudden it wont cast to my chromecast! I've tried everything from resetting the chromecast, my phone, reinstalling the app and nothing. Every other streaming app casts fine just not hulu. Please fix

++++++++++++++++++

Ben Shepard. May 5, 2021. Thumbs : 1. Review : Still unusable for Chromecast users. Commercials play just fine, then RUNUNK13 error the moment your show starts. Going on several weeks now. All other streaming services work fine.

++++++++++++++++++

Alicia Mancuso. April 24, 2021. Thumbs : 4. Review : It all of the sudden won't let me stream to my chromecast anymore? That's the only way I watch hulu, so stopping my account until it's fixed. Not paying for something I can't use!

++++++++++++++++++

Corey Mitchell. April 27, 2021. Thumbs : 5. Review : Bring back cast so I can cast when at another place I can't when I'm connected on another wifi can't cast to other devices except Chromecast on my home WiFi. When on another Wi-Fi around other smart TVs can't cast there is no cast icon.

++++++++++++++++++

++++++++++++++++++

Joshua Coombs. April 24, 2021. Thumbs : 4. Review : This app is broken. Skips to the end of episodes, plays whatever random episode it wants, and now, I can't even cast to my chromecast. Fix it.

++++++++++++++++++

Andrew Thibault. May 1, 2021. Thumbs : 1. Review : Stopped being able to cast to Chromecast via a mobile device. Sounds like I'm not the only one to encounter this problem.

++++++++++++++++++
