How to Fix Hulu not Working on Firestick
There is no need to uninstall the Hulu app on your Firestick when you want to fix “Hulu not working on Firestick”.
Update Hulu App
The first approach I will recommend when the Hulu app keeps crashing on your Firestick or other devices is to check whether you are running an outdated version. This alone can keep the app from working perfectly and can even open ways for hackers to interfere with your files and data without permission.
- From the Hulu updates.
- Head to the home screen.
- Select Apps > Store > Menu (three lines) .
- Choose App Updates from the menu list.
- select Hulu and tap Update next to it.
- Wait for the update to finish.
Now, once the update is completed. Launch the Hulu app whether it still crashes or it shows ‘not responding” or stop working”. If it does, kindly proceed to the next approach to fix the crashing app.
Restart the Hulu App
This is supposed to be the first approach to follow when you want to fix the app not working error that has nothing to do with the server. However, since there is a possibility to restart your phone once in a while if it hangs then we should be justified if we make it the second option to consider when you want to fix the Hulu app not working on Firestick.
- Unplug both the Firestick and TV from your socket.
- Remove the router’s plug from the socket as well.
- Reconnect all the devices back and press the power button on your Firestick, router, and TV.
This should restart all devices connected to powering the Hulu app on your Firestick and as such, the Hulu app is restarted.
Clear Hulu App Caches
Excess of caches can cause the Hulu app to crash. We have seen cases like that. As such, we recommend clearing caches as a means to save most apps from crashing if the app lastest version is installed.
- Launch your Firestick.
- Go to Settings.
- Select Applications
- Click on Manage Installed Applications
- Select Hulu.
- Click both Clear Cache and Clear Data.
Now, restart the Hulu app and run the app to see if it still crashes. In most cases, the not working or not responding you are seeing will be cleared off but you will be asked to enter your Hulu login to re-access your account.
