If you’re having a hard time watching Hulu on Tuesday morning, you’re not the only one.
Thousands of subscribers have complained the popular streaming service is experiencing an outage early Tuesday, with the hashtag #HuluDown on Twitter. Over at Downdetector.com, a site dedicated to tracking website and app outages, several thousand problems have been reported since about 5:00 a.m. ET.
A Hulu rep responded to TheWrap at about 11:30 a.m. ET and said the issue impacted less than half a percent of all Hulu customers and has since been resolved.
Until then, about two-thirds of the complaints on Downdetector.com said they were having issues with streaming video, while another 28% were reporting login issues. Some users at around 10:00 a.m. ET on the site reported their Hulu app on their phone or iPhone started to work again after initially going down earlier in the morning.
As usual when a major app is having problems, a number of users flocked to Twitter to complain or joke about their inability to watch shows like “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and “Bob’s Burgers”; major original shows like “The Handmaid’s Tale” are also MIA for users, too.

Others are apparently upset they can’t stream Gordon Ramsay’s “24 Hours to Hell and Back”:
