As per a user reports, the support is now aware of the issue. However, there’s yet to come an official statement on the matter. Here’s what the user has to say:
I contacted support and they said they didnt know it was down but are working on it now and issued me one month credit.
One of the affected users who got in touch with Hulu support says they’ve been told the service may stay down for about four hours due to an update. Meaning, users may have to wait for few more hours for things to get back to normal.
@PiunikaWeb just got off the phone with Hulu support on hold 47 minutes they said it was down for everyone not sure if true said would be at least 4 hours for an update
We are getting reports the issue has now been resolved.
