  • Once you have a Hulu account, press the Home button on your remote, select the Hulu app, and log in.

This article explains how to get Hulu on your LG Smart TV. These instructions apply to all LG models.

The Hulu app comes pre-installed on most LG smart TVs, so these instructions will apply to most models:

Most LG TVs run the webOS TV operating system, but Roku supports some models (such as the LF5700 series), so you'll need to follow the steps below to get Hulu on Roku.

  1. If you don't have an account yet, visit the Hulu website to sign up for one.

  2. Press the "Home" button on your LG TV remote.

  3. In your app list, select the Hulu app.

  4. Follow the instructions to log into your Hulu account and start streaming.

    If you have a Hulu, ESPN+ and Disney Plus bundle, use the same password to log in to all three services.

If you don't see Hulu in the list of apps, you can install it from the LG Store:

  1. Press the "Home" button on your LG TV remote.

  2. In your app list, select Apps on older LG TVs or LG Content Store .

  3. Select the Search icon at the top of the screen and search for Hulu .

    If you don't see Hulu in the search results, your LG TV doesn't support the Hulu app, so you'll have to use another method.

  4. Select the Hulu app, then select Install and accept the User Agreement.

    On some models, you will be prompted to log in to your LG account before adding or updating apps.

  5. Select "Launch" to open the Hulu app and follow the instructions to start streaming.

All LG smart TVs running webOS 3.5 or higher come with the Hulu app installed. Most LG TVs running webOS 3.0 support Hulu, except for the B6, UH6350, UH6330, UH77, UH76, and UH61 series.

Your model or serial number can be found on the back of your TV. On some LG TVs, you can bring up model information by pressing the mute button three times on the remote.

If Hulu doesn't work on your LG TV, delete and reinstall the app to make sure you have the latest version.

Other ways to watch Hulu on your TV include connecting your computer to your TV or connecting a streaming device such as a Google Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, or Amazon Fire Stick. Consoles like the Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch all have the Hulu app, so you can watch on your LG TV, too.

Another option is to cast Hulu directly from the Google Chrome web browser. First, make sure your LG TV is connected to your computer's Wi-Fi network. To start playing a show or movie in Chrome, select the Cast icon in the lower right corner of the player, then select your LG TV.

You cannot sign up for Hulu directly on your LG TV. You must subscribe to Hulu and set up the account using a different device.

If you subscribe through the Hulu website, you can bundle ESPN+ and Disney Plus at a discount. Alternatively, you can sign up for Hulu through a Google Play, Amazon or Apple account. Some cable and mobile providers offer free Hulu subscriptions as part of their plans.

To cancel Hulu, you must use the same method you used to sign up. For example, if you subscribe to Hulu through your Google account, you must cancel your subscription using the Google Play Store app. If you bundle Hulu with Disney Plus and are billed through Disney, you must cancel your Disney Plus subscription before you can cancel Hulu.

  • Go to your account page on the Hulu website. Then find "Manage Devices," find the person's device, and select "Delete." If you want to completely start over, from your Hulu account page: Protect your account > Sign out of all devices.

  • All Hulu accounts start with 2 streams per account. You purchase an add-on feature that allows unlimited streaming on your home network and 3 streams outside your home network.
