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

Use your TV remote to get to networks then Hulu or Netflix, but you can speak into your Xfinity remote to get netflix.

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

Re: Hulu App

I can guarantee there’s never been a Hulu app on X1. Are you maybe thinking of a smart tv or other device

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.

Using Hulu

Will Hulu ever be available to use through X1 like Netflix is?

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).

Flex: No Hulu App??

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.

All,

 

At this time, the Hulu app is not currently available with Xfinity X1 or Flex. Hulu will be coming to Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex by the end of this year. We will have more details here in the Xfinity Forum on timing soon. Please look out for more information.

 

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.
