There are many related reports coming from Hulu TV users:
@hulu @FoxNews @FoxBusiness I find it really weird that both Fox News and Fox Business aren’t available at the moment. Every other channel seems fine. Fascinating to say the least.
I’m sure Hulu is on the up and up. Nothing to see hear folks!🤷♂️
I haven’t been able to watch Fox News and Fox Business channels on Hulu+Live this morning due to system problems, again. Hmmm, only these 2 channels…@FoxNews @FoxBusiness
However, Hulu TV isn’t the only streaming TV service affected. According to reports, Fox News and Business are also unavailable on Sling TV.
Bet there gonna pull that nbc crap. To view their stuff ya gotta get the app and pay monthly subscription. So pay monthly for Hulu or sling then pay for fox nation app.
@slinganswers what happened to FOX and Fox Business? I pay for this service and now I can’t get it on sling, it says the channel is currently unavailable… What gives???
At the moment there is no official acknowledgment on the issue by the support team of either of the two subscription services.
