First thing first, try restart everything to resolve your playback issues with Hulu. Simply restart everything connected to the device as well as the internet. Because let’s be honest, most of the playback issues are caused by the internet.

Unplug your Amazon Fire TV Stick, your TV and the wireless router. Restarting your device reboots your system. This should fix most of your minor issues.

Internet Issues

If restarting doesn’t resolve your issues, check your internet. As we said, most streaming and playback issues are caused by a slow or interrupted internet. Check your internet using a different device. If the internet is not working, try rebooting your router or contact your internet service provider.

On the other hand, if your internet is working on a different device, try replacing your device or router closer to each other. There is a possibility that your device is not getting strong enough signals.

Reset application

Reinstall
When all fails, try reinstalling the application on your Fire Stick. Reinstall the application requires you to first remove the application from the device and then install it again. This would resolve all your application related problems.

Simply, go to the settings and uninstall Hulu application. Once the application is removed from the device, you can restart your device and install the application. Once you reinstall the application, you would have to sign into your account before you can start enjoying the service. for more information contact Amazon fire stick customer service number.
