Hulu Users Report Widespread Outages, Other Streaming Services Also Experiencing Issues
Streaming subscribers have been experiencing a pretty frustrating evening on Thursday. Around the country, major streaming services have been dealing with outages, leaving movie and TV fans wondering exactly what is going on. Online, subscribers are bringing up issues with Apple TV+, HBO Max, and even Netflix, but it looks like Hulu is the service experiencing most of the problems. A lot of folks can't even log on to Hulu, as an error message meets them on the home page, keeping them from even attempting to watch something.
Not everybody is having an issue with every service, but there are some sizable outages throughout the United States on Wednesday. Outside of Hulu, Apple TV+ seems to be the most common. Some subscribers are finding that they can access purchased content on Apple TV but aren't able to view any Apple TV+ originals.
Of course, as soon as streaming outages began on Wednesday, subscribers from across the country flocked to Twitter to see if other people were having the same problems.
