Anyone having any issues with Hulu on Unotelly tonight? Problems here on a 2degrees ufb connection. Been working without a fault for two years, tonight it is playing the channel ident (For example ABC logo) but then ocks up as soon as it starts to stream the first ad and never comes back. This is on iPad and two Apple TV units. Have tried restarting ONT, router, devices etc.

I had same problem with Hulu, via Getflix, on both an Apple TV 4 and an Amazon Fire TV 1. Shows initial network logo then either just sits there loading or plays with pauses every few seconds. No problem with Netflix. I am on 2degrees UFB 200/200.

Phew thought it was just me. I only installed Hulu last night on my Sony TV along with a new signup to unotelly. Great when these things happen at the same time you change something else :-)

Well, it seemed to be working this morning but I only gave it a very quick try. This evening, video does play but it buffers a fair bit and never achieves an HD picture. Anyone else still experiencing sub-par performance?

Unotelly support asked me to try a different DNS server - they suggested trying the Seattle one. I made the change and the buffering issues seem to have gone away, but the stream remains SD. I've reported back to them as I guess this means there's a problem with the NZ server.

Yes I am having the same issue with Hulu on my FireTV and PS4, but my laptop and PC are playing Hulu fine.

Was having some issues with Hulu just before - 2degrees ADSL + dns4me. I thought it was my connection getting maxed out but no, idle >.<

Watched on a citylink connection last night via Astrill VPN and had lots of buffering. Amazon, Netflix and 3now were all fine.
