Re: hulu

Not through Comcast boxes, you’d have to use a third party device, ie Roku or Smart TV app

The question was answered, a Hulu app isn't available through Comcast X1 boxes. Use your smart tv or whatever other device that you have that can access Hulu.

use your TV remote and press the apps button or if no apps button the TV remote's menu button and find apps. you must have the TV connected to your wifi in order to use internet apps with your TV.

Check your tv's manual. You should have the Hulu app in the Tv's app menu if compatible with your smart television. You need to use the television's remote to use these features.

 

The television gets IPV television directly off the Internet. Your cable-box does not come into play when watching Hulu.

Re: Hulu App

It takes multiple companies to agree to a contract, in the case of Hulu has 4 owners (really 3) that are all competitors. Look for Amazon Prime later this year

The Hulu app was never part of the Comcast X1 platform.

Re: Hulu App

The Hulu app was never part of the Comcast X1 platform. It was part of some smart TV app platforms. I have a Vizio Smart TV and was available for a time, but I guess the contract ran out and is no longer available on my particular smart TV. I have to watch Hulu on my tablet now. Perhaps Comcast Xfinity will partner with Hulu in the future like it has with Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Prime Video and Tubi Tv.

Re: Using Hulu

You never know, if so it will be advertised. It might be tough as Disney is a majority owner. Currently through the Amazon Prime app is the only way

Re: Using Hulu

I doubt it, it’s still an X1 box being used and if you look at the picture posted in the article, it’s all streaming apps (which is the whole point of the article).

When is Xfinity going to have a Hulu App available? It's the only reason I ordered the flex and I was very disappointed to find that Hulu is not available yet.

***UPDATED 03/24/2020***

 

All,

 

At this time, the Hulu app is now available to all Xfinity Flex customers, and will be available to our Xfinity X1 customers soon!

 

To access the Hulu app, you’ll need:

  • A compatible streaming TV Box with Xfinity Flex service.
  • Xfinity Internet service (any level).
  • A subscription to one of Hulu’s plans. Visit hulu.com/start/xfinityflex to sign up for a Hulu subscription. Currently, you can’t sign up through your Xfinity TV Box.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions
Why can’t I access the Hulu app on my X1 TV Box?
Hulu isn’t available to our X1 customers yet, but it will be soon!

I don’t have Xfinity TV but I have Xfinity Internet. Can I access the Hulu app?
Yes, but only if you have an Xfinity Flex device too. Customers can access Hulu on a variety of non-Xfinity devices as well. Information on supported devices is available at hulu.com.

I am a Flex customer. How do I manage my Hulu subscription?
Flex customers must manage their Hulu subscription (this includes upgrading or downgrading your service, as well as unsubscribing) on hulu.com.

In the future, you’ll be able to manage your Hulu subscription through your Xfinity Flex TV Box.

Do I need to register or sign in to use Hulu?
Yes, you can use your existing Hulu credentials to sign in to the Hulu app on Flex. Select Log in once you launch the Hulu app on your TV Box.

If you already have a Hulu account, see the Hulu App on Flex.

To start a new Hulu subscription, visit hulu.com/start/xfinityflex to create an account and then sign in on your TV Box.

How much does Hulu cost?
Aside from the prices for your Xfinity services, Hulu offers two different content plans: an ad-supported plan for $5.99 per month and an ad-free plan for $11.99 per month.

Can I access Hulu + Live TV on X1 or Flex?
No, the Hulu + Live TV service isn’t available on Xfinity devices. Only Hulu’s Video On Demand library is available. Customers who purchased Hulu + Live TV directly from Hulu won’t be able to access Live TV or their Hulu DVR recordings on the Hulu app on Flex.

I forgot my Hulu username or password. How do I find my username or reset my password?
Please go to hulu.com to find your Hulu username or reset your password.

Is Hulu in HD?
Yes, select titles in Hulu’s library content will stream at 1080p or 720p.

Is Hulu in 4K?
No, not currently.

Does watching Hulu count against my monthly Internet data usage?
Yes, Hulu content is streamed from the Internet, and will count against your monthly data usage.

How do I block access to Hulu on Flex?
There are two ways you can set parental controls for the Hulu app:
  • Lock TV-MA content under Settings > Parental Controls > TV Rating Locks. Once locked, a Parental Control PIN is required before you can access the app.
  • You can block access to the Hulu app using an Application Lock.

 

 

Thank you in advance for your continued patience.

Re: Hulu

Up until now HULU was scheduled to be added in late 2019 or early 2020. Now you are reporting that it would be by the end of 2020. With all the other services out there Comcast is missing the boat. Why would anyone sign up for Flex without the apps that they would want to use. Very disappointed in Comcast in delaying the things that people would want available to them. It would be better if Comcast would just give us a date instead of Comming Soon.

Re: Hulu App

I was watching Hulu yesterday via Comcast X1. Today, I get the error code 'Hulu is not supported by X1". Comcast said that is correct. What happened? When & Why? How do I watch Hulu on my tv now? VERY FRUSTRATING

Re: Hulu App

I called about a week ago and asked when the HULU app will be on the X1.   After several trys the rep said it would be 1 to 2 weeks.  Sometimes they tell you what you want to hear.  The fact that you did watch HULU on the X1 tells me they may be working on adding it sooner . I have seen them put something up then take it down trying to get all the bugs out. Lets hope thats the case. As I said before "Coming Soon" just dosn't cut it.
