Hulu looking into issues with NBC Sunday Night Football broadcast, but fix has no ETA

Hulu is one of the most popular streaming services available on the internet. With more than 42.8 million users worldwide, Hulu requires users to register if they want to watch any content on the website.

The streaming service was launched in 2007 and is owned by The Walt Disney Company with NBCUniversal also having a stake in the company. For many, Hulu is an alternative to cable TV.


Unlike its competitors like Amazon Prime and Netflix, users have the option to use the service for free if they are willing to see some ads.

Hulu is known for offering some really good original content such as the award-winning series The Handmaid’s Tale. Having said that, the service does encounter some bugs and issues every now and then with many unable to watch their favorite content.

Recently, users complained that Hulu did not fix the English dub issue with Naruto Shippuden even after years while others experienced ‘Sorry, this channel is temporarily unavailable’ error.

And as if that wasn’t enough, many Hulu users are now reporting an issue watching NBC Sunday Night Football broadcast. People say all they see is static when they try to tune in to NBC.


@hulu not working with the nbc channel every sunday during the nfl game is infuriating and confusing.

Is NBC channel on Hulu live sound messed up for everyone @hulu @nbc- it has been all static for two days now

This is really frustrating and is infuriating many people since they are unable to watch the Sunday Night Football game.

Fortunately, Hulu has acknowledged the streaming issue with NBC Sunday Night Football broadcast and said it is under investigation. However, they haven’t shared any ETA on when the glitch will be fixed.

Sorry about that! It sounds like you’re running into an issue our teams are aware of and looking into. We don’t have an ETA on a fix, but want to assure you that we have all hands on deck investigating. Thanks for your patience!

In the meantime, Hulu is asking users to log in via the NBC app if they want to watch NBC. But this isn’t a viable solution for those who do not have access to the NBC app.

Apologies for the trouble! This behavior is currently under investigation, and we hope to see it cleared up soon. For now, we suggest using your Hulu + Live TV login to watch via the NBC app

When Hulu developers fix the issue with NBC Sunday Night Football broadcast, we will let you know so make sure you keep an eye out on this space for updates.
