See if the problem lies with the Hulu app:
The best possible way to find if the error is on the part of the Hulu app and not Roku TV is to check if you are experiencing troubles with all channels or just the Hulu app. If the latter is the case, you need to fix the Hulu app.
Resetting the Hulu app on Roku TV:
Simply locate the app on your device and press the Star button on your remote. You will see a number of options in the channel menu. Now, choose the Remove Channel option. After this, restart your Roku TV system from Settings > System. As soon as the rebooting of the system is over, reinstall the Hulu app on your TV.
Fixing the Hulu app if it won’t open or load on the Roku TV:
Sometimes users face constant crashing of the Hulu app on Roku TV. On the other hand, sometimes, the Hulu app is simply unable to open or load. In this case, try these steps:
1) Check your connection- sometimes the Hulu app gets stuck or fails to load if there are connectivity issues. To check your internet connection, go to Settings> Network> Check Connection and ensure your internet connection is strong.
2) Check the Hulu app’s status- sometimes users are unable to use the app if the app servers are down. If the app servers are down, it means there are no connectivity issues on your part. In that case, wait for the app to start working.
3) Remove and Reinstall the Hulu app- You can try removing the app and clearing the Roku TV’s memory. For this, you will have to remove the app and restart your TV. After restarting it, reinstall the channel and try using it again. This will also install any pending updates to the app.
Additionally, check if your Roku device/TV needs a firmware update. Your TV or stick must be updated to version 8.1 or higher, and the Hulu app should be updated to version 6.6.3 or higher. Also, note that the latest Hulu app is available only on the latest Roku TVs or sticks. Following is a list of supported devices:
– Roku Ultra
– Roku Premiere and Premiere+
– Roku Express and Express+
– Roku 3 and 4
– Roku 2 (model 4210X)
– Roku Streaming Stick (model 3500X or later)

The classic Hulu app is, however, still available on old Roku devices like Roku 2, Roku 1, and Roku LT.
These are some simple fixes that usually help solve the Hulu app loading and crashing problems on Roku TV. Before you try these, also ensure that you have no pending updates. In case there are updates available, try updating first.
