How to fix Verizon Disney Bundle Hulu not working?

Step 1 – Check Hulu email address
For your Hulu account to work, you need to login with the same credentials used for activating your Disney bundle through Verizon.

If you already have a Hulu account on your device, log out of it and then access the account you paid for from Verizon. Because, it is not possible to run both of the accounts on the same device.
Step 2 – Check Hulu server status
Servers for popular websites get a lot of traffic (users accessing a website).
Servers might not be able to handle a lot of users visiting the website at the same moment.

If ESPN and Disney+ are working without any problems and there is only problem with your Hulu account, it is time to check its server status.
- Visit www.downdetector.com.
- Type Hulu and enter.

- If the server is down, try opening Hulu after a while.

Cache is the data stored (from previous interactions) by an application, for processing later requests of user faster.
This will increase the speed the app responds to you, but a lot of cache will cause your application to malfunction. Because, the cache takes up unnecessary load on the application.
If all the applications included in the Disney bundle are working normally and Hulu is the only one causing the issue, try to clear its cache.
- Visit the settings on your device.
- Select applications and find Hulu.
- After selecting Hulu, go to storage and clear cache.
Step 4 – Contact Hulu Help Center

Hulu support will let you get some hands-on support to your problem.
You can contact a customer support executive through their website and they will get your application to work as usual.
Step 5 – Contact Verizon Support
Verizon is where the Disney bundle is billed from. So, if you have problems with your Hulu account you can also contact their customer support to resolve your problem.
