Hulu Error 94: How to Fix it on Samsung Smart TV?

After connecting your Disney plus account, are you trying to set up your Hulu account on your Samsung Smart TV?

But is there a problem?

Hulu error 94 problem

If you’re getting Hulu error 94 on your smart TV, you’re not alone, as I’ve seen Samsung customers asking for a solution in their official forum.

And with this post, I’ll share some methods you can use to fix the Hulu error 94 until a fix patch is officially available.

Let’s get started –

Change DNS settings.

If you’re having trouble connecting to your favorite shows and movies on Hulu, changing the DNS settings on your router or Smart TV may solve the problem.

To change the DNS settings of your router, follow these instructions:

Switch to a wired connection from WiFi.

If your Samsung Smart TV is connected to a wireless network, it may be time to switch to a wired connection.

There are several benefits of connecting to a network via Ethernet cables that you won’t get with WiFi.

For example, you’ll have much faster speeds and better connection stability if your device is connected with an Ethernet cable.

To switch from WiFi to wired connection:

Apart from this, if there’s any Wi-Fi related issues, you should refer to one of my previous posts where I’ve briefly provided solutions to all your problems.

Clear the Cache and Data of the Hulu app.

There are two ways to clear the cache and data of the Hulu app on Samsung Smart TV. You can use the Settings menu, or you can use the Hulu app itself.

Either way, here’s how:

Turn on Streaming Services in Smart Hub Features.

Despite clearing cache and Hulu app data, you’re still getting the Hulu error 94, it’s time for you to turn on streaming services in the Smart hub features.

To enable this option, you need to go to ‘Smart Hub’ and select ‘Features.’ Then, select ‘Streaming Services. On this page, choose Hulu and turn it on by clicking on the ‘on/off button.

Disable your anti-virus software.

If you’re using avast free antivirus software, it might be interfering with Hulu and causing error 94. Switch off your anti-virus program, then try streaming again.

If you don’t need to use the antivirus software for security reasons, uninstall it entirely and see if this fixes things.

Update the Firmware of the Samsung Smart TV.

Update the firmware

Firmware is an operating system that runs on your device and helps it run smoothly. It’s like the driver in your car, but much more critical because it tells your TV how to do things like play videos or games.

Firmware updates can fix bugs and improve performance by improving compatibility with other devices and software on your Samsung smart TV.

The best way to update firmware is through settings—it’s usually possible for users to update their own TVs’ firmware without calling a technician, as long as they have access to a computer connected to the Internet (which most people do).

Uninstall and reinstall the Hulu application.

Update the Hulu app on Samsung Smart TV.

To update the Hulu app on Samsung Smart TV, you have to follow these steps:

  1. Go to the smart hub and open it.
  2. Open the settings from your smart hub screen and then click on apps.
  3. Look for Hulu app update and click on it when you find it in this menu of all installed apps on your TV screen; then, click Update All if needed so that all updates are checked and ready for download.
  4. Otherwise, just go ahead with updating just one app at a time by clicking its Update button (at least once).
  5. Wait a few seconds until an update message appears on your screen like “Hulu has been updated successfully” or something similar (this depends entirely on what type of device you’re using – Android devices tend to take longer than iOS ones). Once done updating, everything should work fine again without errors!

Connect to Another Server

If you are getting this error, your connection to the service’s servers is failing. If you have been using the same Hulu server for a while and there have been no problems with it, then it is time to try another server.

You can do this by going to Hulu on your Smart TV and selecting ‘Sign Out. Then go back into the app and sign in again but use a different server like one of the ones listed below:

Log out of Your Hulu Account From Unwanted Devices.

The first step is to ensure that there aren’t too many devices on your home network simultaneously.

This includes wired and wireless, as well as any smart TVs or streaming devices connected directly to the router.

If too many devices are connected, they will cause bandwidth issues, resulting in laggy performance and buffering issues when streaming Hulu content through Samsung Smart TVs.

Conclusion

When using a streaming service, unwanted errors ruin all user experience.

Earlier it was Netflix error code S7706, and this time, it was Hulu error 94, causing issues on the Samsung Smart TV.

But don’t worry too much, as this post will fix this hulu error for you.
