Review from Darren Weiss
No HDMI Output, Limits what you can watch Amazingly, Hulu has decided to ban users from projecting videos via HDMI. This is absurd, given that many other devices (Roku, game consoles, etc.) permit users to watch videos on their televisions. Moreover, Hulu prevents you from watching certain shows via phone or tablet-- astounding given that this is a pay per view service. If Hulu won't give consumers what they want, consumers will go elsewhere, to the detriment of Hulu's advertising dollars. Shame on you Hulu.
Great app until the last update changing the boarders around the video from black to grey... What the F*** were they thinking?!? Leave it black or add boarder color change as an option! Download may be free but to use it isn't past the one time brief trial. It's 8 to 12 bucks a month. Should have options for the user!
It's great until you try to pause the movie or show and instead of showing the pause button, it moves to where your finger is on the time bar. I've had to watch the same scenes of the same movie 8 times just this morning. Also, I would love some older shows. Alf, maybe. Some more horror?
I had hulu for years, this latest ui update just ended my involvement. The ui looks nice, but is a nightmare to navigate, it fails to support ease of use. If you have a watch list, its hard to tell if there are new episodes. In fact, it made every show i watched already, marked as unwatched, making it impossible to know where i left off. In a series. I am not saying bring back the old ui, but ease of use is more important than a flashy ui display. I don't want to work at something that used to be simple.
Does anyone take the time to familiarize yourself with the app before moaning? Too many ads. . TV has ads to . . even cable. It's how money is made! I switched from Hulu (no commercials) to Hulu live TV (NO COMMERCIALS) with extended dvr. And after a Google search. .a how to video. .and a little patience. .Within an hour I was managing my stuff. .recording stuff..deleting stuff. .with no problem. I also have this coupled with youtube tv live with unlimited dvr and I love both!! YOU WANT GOOD. .PAY FOR IT!! THAT'S LIFE ON EARTH PEOPLE! ! AND IT AIN'T CHANGING NO TIME SOON!!! If you want it you'll find a way to afford it!!
I like hulu alot. But the 2 star rating is because when i add a new show to my watchlist, it over rules the older shows on my android. I know this is the wrong forum for my other issue with hulu but im voicing it anyways... On my ps3, there ISNT a keep watching section.. I have to search for the show im watching or go all the way to the end of my watchlist.
It's not intuitive, if you start to play something via chromecast and want to stop, you cannot get rid of their notification item. The overall design is mix of ui from the Cupcake era of Android with some new elements sprinkled in randomly. Their 'feedback' menu is misleading, there is no way to actually give feedback, its basically just FAQs.
