Hulu subtitles do not work correctly on WebOS

3 posts in this topic

I have an LG 65UF8500. I am hard of hearing and need to use CC when watching TV. All of the apps I usually use (Netflix, Amazon, YouTube) have no problems with the captioning; except Hulu. Captioning on Hulu Plus is spotty. Sometimes it's there and then it's gone again. I have two other (older) TVs of different brands streaming Hulu via AppleTV. I never have any problems with either of those sets, which leads me to believe that the problem exists with your WebOS. So when can I expect this problem to be resolved?

I am having the same problem. I'm disappointed to see no updates for the Hulu app. This is the problem with "Smart" devices: once you've bought the device, there's no incentive for the company to properly maintain the software! Instead, they've taken away features (3d content, for example) and the software deteriorates over time as updates get deployed without full testing.

Same problem here, but it eventually will cause Hulu to give a "critical error" message and the dialogue box to quit the application, which doesn't work either. Only solution is to turn off the TV, then back on. So, I have to leave closed captions off, which sucks.
