Clearing your browser cache
Summary
Often times, clearing the browser cache on your computer can help to resolve many issues across the Hulu.com website.

As you visit a web page, most browsers save a copy of it on your computer in a temporary location called the cache, which helps your computer load that page more quickly on subsequent visits. While this is a great time-saving feature in most cases, it can occasionally cause conflicts on some pages if the cached copy is out of date.

 

Outlined below are the steps necessary to clear the cache for several popular browsers, which will help ensure your computer is loading the most recent version of hulu.com
