Hulu officials have not commented on the issue yet and all the users are forced to contact the support representatives of the device manufacturer who in turn direct them to Hulu; this becomes an endless loop.

Here are some of the devices this error occurs in:

  • Firestick
  • Xbox One and Xbox 360
  • PS4
  • Samsung TVs and all other Smart TVs
  • PCs
  • iPads
  • Apple TV

The fixes mentioned below are universal for all applications; only the method to go about them might differ a little bit.

How to Fix Hulu Error Code 95?

We will start the fixes starting with the most effective ones and work our way to the more complex ones later on. Make sure that you have your Hulu credentials at hand before proceeding.

1. Power Cycling your Device

The first workaround to try is to power cycle your device completely. Power cycling means completely restarting your devices and making sure all energy is drained from them. This removes all bad configurations (if any) and solves issues stemming from configuration files.

  1. Turn off all devices including your router as well. Then take out the power cable from them.
  2. After this is done, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to make sure all energy is drained.
  3. After waiting for an additional 5 minutes, plug everything back in and see if the issue is resolved.

2. Clear Cache and Data of the Hulu App

The Hulu application stores Cache and Data in its local storage after fetching important information and configurations from the Hulu servers. However, over time the cache and data can get corrupt and in turn cause issues like the error message 95. In this solution, we will attempt at clearing all data and cache of the application and see if this does the trick.

For demonstration, we are going to use Android as this will apply to all other devices as well like Samsung TV and Firestick.

  1. Launch the Android Settings and open Apps/Application Manager.

    Open Apps in the Android Settings

  2. Now select Hulu and tap on Force Stop if it is already running. Next, open Storage.

  3. Now tap on the Clear Cache button and check if the Hulu app is working fine.
  4. If not, repeat the above steps and tap on the Clear Data button in the Storage settings.

  5. Confirm to clear the data of the Hulu app and launch the app to check if it is clear of error 95. 

3. Changing WiFi to 2.4GHz from 5GHz

This solution is targeted toward dual-band router users. We came across an interesting interaction between Hulu users switching to 2.4GHz from 5GHz in their routers and fixed the issue instantly. This might be due to the fact that 5GHz has bad attenuation through walls in your home.

Look up your router settings and try switching the network and see if this does the trick. If you want more context, check out the Reddit link posted as this method’s verification

4. Reset Smart Hub in Samsung TV

If the Hulu app is one of the system apps of your device (like Samsung TV), then resetting the device or in the case of a Samsung TV, resetting the Smart Hub may solve the problem.

Note: A quick workaround for this is to press and hold the power button on the remote for 5-10 seconds. This will cause the Samsung logo to flash and then reset the Smart Hub.

  1. Navigate to the Support section in the Samsung TV’s Settings and open Self Diagnostics.
  2. Now click on Reset Smart Hub and then confirm to reset the hub.

  3. Once the reset operation is complete, launch the Hulu app.
  4. Then log in using your credentials and hopefully, the Hulu Error 95 will be solved.

5. Reinstall the Hulu App

If none of the above methods work, you should attempt reinstalling the Hulu application from scratch. This will rule out any incomplete files on your Hulu application and fix related issues.

  1. Launch the Android Settings and open Apps/Application Manager.
  2. Now select Hulu and Force Stop the app. Then tap on the Uninstall button and afterward, confirm to uninstall the Hulu app.

  3. Once uninstalled, reboot your device, and upon reboot, reinstall the Hulu app from the App or Play store.

6. Replacing the Router and Networking Equipment

If none of the above methods work, you try changing your Networking equipment as the last resort. Our troubleshooting suggests that if there is no issue with the application itself, it means that there must be problems with your internet connection or your router.

First, consider changing your internet ISP. You can try using a Hotspot from your 3G / 4G mobile device. Otherwise, try a wired connection if your device supports it, or replace the router temporarily to rule out router problems. Make sure you use the 2.4GHz one.
