One of the most common errors many people get when using Hulu is error 94. It is a problem that occurs on most devices, including smartphones, Smart TV, and gaming consoles like the Xbox One.
Error 94 on Hulu usually suggests a loading issue with the streaming application.
When error 94 on Hulu occurs, you cannot stream a video or get it to load to start playing. Such an experience can be annoying, especially if you do not know its cause or how to fix it. Some of the possible reasons for the problem include:
- An unstable internet connection
- An outdated app or device OS is out-of-date
- Too many temporary files that you need to clear
You may also be getting Hulu error 94 because you have opened too many apps that are either consuming device memory or sharing your internet connection.
Steps to fix Hulu loading error 94
Here is how to fix Hulu loading error 94 on any device including the Samsung Smart TV:
1. Close the Hulu app
The first step is always the easiest. In other words, exit Hulu fully and open the app again. Also, close all other programs or applications running in your device background.
On your Samsung Smart TV app, go to Settings > Applications > Hulu > Force Stop.
2. Power cycle your device
You can power cycle your TV by turning it off, unplugging it from the power source, waiting for a few minutes, plug back the power cable, and then powering it back up.
While at it, do the same for your modem and router. Next, open the app and try again. Performing a power cycle will refresh connections and start afresh.
3. Check your internet connection
You can check your internet connection by running a speed test on your smartphone, Smart TV, or gaming console. Next, compare the results with Hulu’s recommendations. On the web or mobile, run the test by going to speedtest.com.
If you are using a TV-connected device, use the built-in speed test app. So, how much data do you need to stream Hulu? Here’s the recommended internet connection speed for streaming videos on Hulu:
- 3 Mbps for general Hulu streaming
- 8 Mbps for live streaming
- 16 Mbps for 4K videos
If you have less than this, contact your ISP or upgrade your connection.
4. Clear app data and cache
The Hulu app has temporary data and files that it stores on devices to improve performance. But over time, the cached files get corrupted and cause problems, including the Hulu error code 94.
- Go to Settings on your Android device
- Select Apps
- Scroll to find Hulu and tap on it
- Select Storage
- Tap on Clear Data and Clear Cache
Once done, open Hulu, log in using your username and password and try again.
5. Uninstall and reinstall Hulu
Uninstalling and reinstalling the app helps to solve many streaming issues, especially if Hulu won’t load. It also helps you to get the latest version of Hulu. If you are using your TV’s store, select the app and choose Uninstall.

After uninstalling, power-cycle the device, wait for a minute and then go to the app store to reinstall Hulu.
If you failed to load Hulu, consider power-cycling your device and try again. You can also check your internet connection and ensure the speed is within Hulu’s recommendations.
Alternatively, you can clear the app cache and data or uninstall and reinstall Hulu and try again.
