Hulu app on ny UH7700 sometimes hangs on startup...

Question

Sometimes when I start Hulu, it shows the logo but all I see is an infinite spinning wheel in the upper left corner. I have to turn the TV off, then back on and it usually works, but it is annoying.

I can tell within a couple seconds whether it is going to hang or not. When the spinning wheel appears, if it starts and continues spinning smoothly after a second or two, it is hung. If the wheel spins but hesitates as it is spinning, I know it is working right. Hulu is the only app that hangs like this. Netflix, Amazon and Vudu always work, when started.

 

Please look into this. I am on Web OS 3 (55in UH7700).

I am having the same issue with my Hulu app and I have the same tv.  It is very annoying.  Sometimes shutting the tv off and powering it up doesn't work either. I have to uninstall and reinstall for it to work.  If anyone has a solution to this issue please share.

    • Question: Support for Hulu Live and changing Hulu account

      Have a LG webOS TV (OLED 55B6P-U) software version 05.30.25. Want to know if the Hulu app resident on the TV supports Hulu Live TV. If this TV doesn’t support Hulu Live then my question below is moot. If yes, how do I change the Hulu account currently associated with this Hulu app (a visiting friend used her Hulu Plus sign-in to watch some program she was watching and now we want to put our own account information into the app so we use Hulu Live TV).  I deleted the app from the on screen menu and downloaded it. When opened it just went right to the old Hulu Plus opening screen associated with the friend’s account. I see no place on the screen to access account information. Help appreciated!

    • FCC Lists a New Palm Phone in the Works

      Unfortunately not running our beloved webOS, but Android, FCC documents show a new Palm phone in the works. If you recall, the Palm brand was purchased by TLC with the promise of releasing new Palm branded phones.....
        First spotted by Android Police, new filings show a device called the Palm PVG100 has passed through the FCC and WiFi Alliance. Yes, a Palm smartphone submitted by the Palm Ventures Group just showed up in 2018. Not much is known about the device, but it is an Android 8.1 Oreo smartphone with WiFi 2.4GHz and quad-band LTE support. If you went "huh" after reading 2.4GHz, you are correct with that reaction as this device will not support the faster 5GHz band, common in most devices now, by the looks of this filing. ....read more   Palm PVG100 Escapes Smartphone Purgatory Running Android Oreo

    • Question: Photos and Videos app works unintuitively?

      I loaded the Photos & Videos app and was pleased to see a Filter that allowed it to show both Photos AND Videos.  So I applied that Filter (which was probably the default anyway).  I see thumbnails of Photos AND Videos.  So then I clicked on the first thumbnail, which happened to be a video.  When that video finished playing, it went to the next video and so on through all the videos.  I expected it to go to the next Photo OR Video.  In other words I expected it to step through and play the thumbnails as they were displayed by the filter. I don't suppose the LG webOS programmers visit this forum, but if they do, can this feature be changed?  If I just wanted to watch videos, I would have changed the filter to just videos.  Instead it looks like it launches the video player and then goes to the next video.

      I installed hulu but I'm unable to launch. It has been loading for 24 hours.  How do I uninstall and start over?
    • By Peter T Szymonik
      It appears the LG needs to update their app to support the latest version of Hulu (according to Hulu.) Until this done, there is only limited Hulu access available. When will LG update the Hulu app to support the latest Hulu lineup and features?

      Hulu never works on my new LG WebOS OLED TV.   I have made it work from time to time by unplugging (rebooting) the TV or uninstalling & resintalling the app - but now that doesn't work either.  I managed to have it work once by resetting everything to factory standards, which wiped out all user info, passwords, apps, etc., all had to be reentered.   Don't want to do that every time I want to access Hulu!!   Amazon, Netflix, etc. work fine.  Any ideas?  Thanks.
