Though Hulu is a smart and commendable support system for us, there are times when we might face a glitch or problem while using it. In case captions/subtitles are missing while you are watching a particular video on Hulu, follow the tips and fixes mentioned below: –
1) Make sure you’ve enabled them correctly in the Hulu app or website.
2) Check the accessibility settings on your device (if applicable).
3) Close the Hulu app or website completely and reopen it a while later it might be possible that due to online traffic the site was flickering.
4) Check your internet connection, due to slow internet reception it is possible to not be able to view subtitles. Run a speed test on your device just to be sure.
5) Perform a power cycle: Turn your device off (and the modem and router, if applicable). Before turning it back on, wait a few minutes.
6) Test other apps on your device, if you’re experiencing similar problems, it could be due to a lack of connectivity. Contact your internet service provider for further information on how to improve your internet connection.
7) Check for app and system updates, visit the app or play store on your device to see whether Hulu has been updated. To check for system upgrades, go to your device’s settings menu.
8) Clear cache and data: Cache/data may usually be cleared via your device’s settings menu. This step helps clear up space by removing temporary files.
9) Uninstall/Reinstall Hulu: To deal with any streaming troubles, you can remove and reinstall the Hulu app on certain devices.
If the problem persists after troubleshooting and no other videos are affected, contact Hulu. If they don’t have the captions/subtitles you’re looking for, you can send a request to [email protected].
