- After you click the button, you get a reminder that you will be charged based on your subscription.
- Wait for confirmation of your subscription activation.
What to do if your account no longer exists
If your Hulu account no longer exists, it means you won’t be able to reactivate it. However, if the cancellation period is more than 30 days, you can reuse the email address linked to the old account and create a new one. Here’s how:
- You need to open the Hulu website in your web browser
- You will be taken to the home page and in the middle of it you will see Start Your Free Trial and you should click on it.
- Then you will be offered to choose a Hulu plan (with ads), Hulu (no ads), Hulu + Live TV, or Disney Bundle.
- To sign up you need to enter your email address, and your personal information and create a password. Then click on Continue.
- Next, you need to add the payment card, from which the money will be withdrawn to pay for the subscription.
- Click the Submit button to complete the registration
If you still have any questions or have trouble reactivating or creating a new account, don’t be afraid to contact Hulu support. They’ll be happy to help you solve your problems with the service.
Why does my Hulu account not work after reactivation?
Here are a few common reasons why your Hulu account may not work after reactivation:
- Internet Connectivity Issues: One of the most common culprits for Hulu account problems is an unstable or poor internet connection. Make sure you have a stable internet connection and try refreshing the page or restarting your device. If you’re using a mobile device, switching from cellular data to a Wi-Fi network can help ensure a smoother streaming experience.
- Outdated App or Browser: Using an outdated version of the Hulu app or web browser can lead to compatibility issues and hinder the proper functioning of your account. Check for updates in your device’s app store or update your browser to the latest version. This can often resolve technical glitches and improve performance.
- Account Login Issues: If you’re having trouble logging into your Hulu account, double-check your login credentials to ensure they are entered correctly. Remember that usernames and passwords are case-sensitive. If you’ve forgotten your password, use the “Forgot Password” option to reset it. Additionally, clear your browser cache and cookies, as this can help resolve login-related issues.
- Payment problems: Hulu accounts can sometimes have problems due to payment issues or violations of Hulu’s terms of service. If you are having trouble logging into your account, check your email for notifications from Hulu. In any case, you can contact customer support.
- Device Compatibility: Not all devices are compatible with Hulu. Ensure that the device you’re using meets Hulu’s system requirements. You can find a list of supported devices on Hulu’s official website. If you’re using an unsupported device, consider accessing Hulu through a compatible device or using Hulu’s web player on a computer.
- Geographical Restrictions: Hulu’s content availability varies depending on your location. Certain shows or movies may not be accessible due to regional restrictions. If you’re traveling outside your home country, you may encounter limitations on the content you can stream. Using a virtual private network (VPN) or accessing Hulu through a supported location can help bypass these restrictions.
Activating your Hulu free trial, guide
It is usually not possible to reactivate your Hulu free trial. Here’s a general guide to how it works:
- First free trial: Most streaming services, including Hulu, only offer a free trial to new subscribers. Once you’ve used your free trial, you’re generally not eligible for a second free trial using the same account or payment information.
- Promotional offers: Hulu or third parties may occasionally offer promotions that include a free trial. These are usually for new users or those who last subscribed to Hulu a period ago. You will usually be denied a free reactivation.
- Another account: You can technically get another free trial by signing up with a different email address and payment method, but this practice may violate Hulu’s terms of service and is generally not recommended.
