Hulu Live not working on Amazon Fire TV Stick? Fix

The availability of premium content on Hulu makes it one of the best apps to stream live content. However, Hulu Live not working on Amazon Fire TV Stick is a common glitch.

While the bug resolves itself in some cases, lack of access to your live account from Fire Stick locks you out from watching its diverse content, including over 65 cable channels.

If Hulu Live is not working on Amazon Fire TV Stick, the best way to solve the problem is to restart your device. In most cases, this process fixes the problem.

Alternatively, check whether your connection is stable and whether the Hulu app is updated.

However, if the above-mentioned solutions do not work, there are higher chances that the problem is on Hulu and not Firestick. You can contact Hulu or wait for their systems to get back to normalcy.

Here are the steps to fix all streaming glitches and error codes that cause Hulu Live not to work on Amazon Fire Stick.

Restart your device

The first thing to do if Hulu Live App is not available on Amazon Fire TV Stick is to restart your device.

Alternatively, you can restart the device in settings. To complete the process:

  • Go to Amazon Fire Stick’s home screen
  • Highlight the “Home” tab
  • Using your remote, scroll right
  • Click the “My Fire TV” option
  • Scroll down to ‘Restart’ and click it to confirm your request

Check your internet connection

Hulu automatically readjusts streaming quality depending on your internet strength. If the internet is fast and stable, you can get up to 4K video content streams.

However, if the connection is weak, Hulu Live may not work on your Amazon Fire Stick.

To check internet connection status on your Amazon Fire TV Stick:

  • Go to the Fire TV menu.
  • Select ‘Settings.’
  • Scroll down to ‘Network.’
  • On your remote, press the Play/Pause button.
  • Connection status will be displayed on the screen.

If the connection status recommends you connect your device with a stronger connection, restart your router. Alternatively, contact your internet provider for more guidance.

You can also test your internet connection without contacting your Internet provider. To see if the connection meets the 8 Mbps speed threshold:

  • Connect your smartphone to the same connection as your device
  • Go to your browser
  • Type fast.com
  • If the connection is below 8 Mbps, restart your router

However, if the connection is okay, check the subsequent solution. The bug, in this case, is not internet-related.
