Same here. I upgraded from the basic plan last week to commercial-free and the extra $5 is well worth it, IMO.

Re: Hulu -- News and Notable New additions

Spotify Premium now includes Hulu for no extra cost

https://www.theverge.com/2019/3/12/1...u-bundle-price

Spotify Premium now includes a free subscription to Hulu’s ad-supported plan. This perk goes into effect today, and it is available to new and existing users of Spotify’s Premium streaming service in the US. Following Netflix’s recent price hike, Hulu lowered the cost of its ad-supported plan down to $5.99 a month, and now, Spotify users will get savings on top of savings.

To take advantage of this deal, new Spotify users can sign up now. Just be sure to activate Hulu on the “Your Services” page within account settings. If you already get Hulu through Spotify, you won’t have to do anything to start saving an extra $3 per month. On the other hand, if you subscribe to Hulu and don’t yet have a Spotify account, you’ll need to cancel your billing through Hulu, then set it up through Spotify to receive the discount.
I'm putting this in the Hulu thread because I see it as a Hulu deal.
Since I don't pay for any Hulu add-ons, and am already a Spotify Premium subscriber, this swtich was a no-brainer. The switch took about 30 seconds for me, and now Hulu is (technically) free.

Since I have a Spotify family membership (meaning I pay more), it seems I don’t qualify.

I just noticed Futurama lost all but 3 episodes. Was that part of the FOX deal with Disney? If so they work quick!

Re: Hulu -- News and Notable New additions

Disney owns a majority stake in Hulu, so it's actually weird.

Re: Hulu -- News and Notable New additions

Last night I saw The Quiet Place listed and added it to my queue. Went back a bit later and it says it won’t be available until April 3rd. I’ve seen them do it with tv shows that are a few hours away from being available, but never with a movie and never a week+ in advance. It kinda pissed me off.
Is this a new “feature” or just something I haven’t noticed?

I saw them last night. Must have been a software glitch, being Hulu it doesnt surprise me.

That pissed you off? I hope your life doesn't get worse than that.

Re: Hulu -- News and Notable New additions

My Hulu app isn't working properly on my LG E7 OLED anymore, but the weird thing is... it's just my account. My wife's account, and my kid's account (which were both created long after mine, but are part of the exact same subscription) work perfectly fine. But for me... pages aren't loading fully... I can't see episode lists... nothing will actually play, but instead will load forever and then produce an error. But the other two accounts... no such issues. I even removed the app from my TV, re-installed it, and re-input my account info... and immediately, the issue persisted on my account only.

Really frustrating.

Re: Hulu -- News and Notable New additions

If you go to Hulu.com and switch to your profile (if necessary) then go to Account, there is an option on the right side there to Sync Watchlist to My Stuff. idk if that will do anything or not?

Re: Hulu -- News and Notable New additions

^ thanks! I think that did it. The first thing I tried to play popped up with an error, but then everything started loading normally again, and now playback seems to work as normal.

I owe you a Molson!
