What Is Error 94 on Hulu?
When your internet connection is spotty or poor, Hulu error 94 appears. Second, it can be busy with out-of-date software or device compatibility issues.
How to Fix Error 94 on Hulu
You can resolve the problem by following several troubleshooting procedures.
The simplest solution is to restart Hulu after closing it. Most frequently, you choose Hulu and then quit the program. However, sometimes it’s not that simple. One example is the Fire TV Stick.
To stop Hulu, navigate to Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications.
Depending on your device, different apps may need to be closed and restarted, but they all do it similarly.
Restart your device.
Whether you’re using a smart TV, Firestick, or another device to view Hulu, there is an easy fix: simply power cycle the device. By shutting the Hulu app off and back on again, you can clean up any internal memory and restart it. Don’t forget to reboot your router at the same time.
Turn off your VPN
Try turning off your VPN if you use it to access Hulu videos from a different country. While streaming service loading troubles are frequently happening by more secure VPNs.
Check Another Streaming Service
As annoying as it may seem when Hulu isn’t working, check if other services are working before diving into more complicated steps. If the problem is with your internet connection, try to fix it before clearing your cache, uninstalling the app, or performing other time-consuming troubleshooting steps.
If not, do a speed test. You may have trouble streaming content if your Internet speed exceeds the recommended rates of at least 3.0 Mbps for Basic Library (or 16.0 Mbps for 4K content). However, Hulu says viewers can stream in reduced quality at speeds as low as 1.5Mbps.
Get Rid of Your Cache
If you’re watching Hulu through your web browser, the problem could be a corrupted cache. Clearing your cache can solve many issues that Hulu can cause. Every browser has its method for clearing the cache, but here’s how to do it in Chrome.
- Select the three dots in the upper right corner of the screen, then select More tools > Clear browsing data.
- Make sure Cached images, files, cookies, and other site data are selected.
- Select Clear Data.
Once you have done this, your cache will be clean. Although websites and services require you to log in again, this is an easy fix for many technical issues.
Delete the App Cache
You can clear your app cache if you get Error 94 when viewing Hulu on mobile. Android and iOS differ in how this is thru; a clean cache behaves as if the app were new to your device. If you restart it, you have to log in again. How to delete it on iOS:
- Open Settings > General.
- Select iPhone Storage > Hulu.
- Select Download App.
Confirm your choice when prompted. This will remove all Hulu-related data from your phone but will not remove the app. Next time it will take a little longer to start as it will reinstall the necessary background files, but hopefully, it will start without the error.
Hulu should be deleted and then reinstalled.
Another common problem is an outdated app. If it’s been a while since you’ve updated the Hulu app, try removing it entirely by uninstalling it from your device and downloading the latest software version.
(Tip: you can also avoid this as long as you check for updates.)
Software Updates for Your Device
Routine Hulu updates are essential, but you should also remember to update your streaming devices. Even something as small as a missed Windows 10 update can disrupt streaming, primarily if the update affects your GPU or drivers.
Depending on the device, there are different ways to check for updates. Here’s how to do it for Roku.
- Select Settings
- Select Check Now.
While most hardware updates are applied automatically, you may need to update manually if your device has been offline for a long time.
Hulu has some error codes, but don’t worry; most streaming services have them too. These codes are only one way to identify the cause of a problem, although some codes are vague and can be caused by a variety of different sources. So, follow these steps to watch How I Met Your Mother again (and yes, you can skip the final season).
