Solutions To Hulu Error Code 95

We will start the fixes starting with the easiest 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.

Check Hulu Service Status

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.

Clear Cache and Data

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 to clear all data and cache of the application and see if this does the trick.

Changing WiFi to 2.4GHz from 5GHz

This solution is targeted toward dual-band router users. We came across an exciting 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 insufficient attenuation through walls in your home. Look up your router settings, and try switching the network to see if this does the trick.

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.

Reinstall the Hulu App

If none of the above methods work, you should attempt reinstalling the Hulu application from scratch. This will rule out incomplete files on your Hulu application and fix related issues. You can use this walkthrough to reinstall the Hulu App on any of your devices. If the problem still persists, look into the solutions below.

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.

Contact Hulu Support

If none of these solutions work, as a last resort you can head to the Customer Support page. You can also contact them on this number  1-888-712-4221 or simply reach out on their social media pages. Hulu recommends either calling them or contacting them on their Twitter Support page.  You can take help from this Reddit page when trying to reach out to Hulu.
