How To Get Hulu on LG Smart TV

Hulu

The Hulu app has fans all over the world. Now Hulu fans can watch their favorite shows on their LG TV. But outside the US, you may find it challenging to watch Hulu on an LG TV. So, how can we resolve this?

Quick Answer

You can watch Hulu in the US by installing the app on an LG TV. You can find the app by looking for it in the TV’s search bar or browsing through the LG Content Store. If you are not in the US, you can use Hulu by first installing a VPN, then installing the app on your television. You can even install and play Hulu on your Apple AirPlay.

So, always make sure to use a VPN while accessing Hulu outside the US. Here are the steps to install Hulu on an LG TV.

Installing the Hulu App for US Users

You can now directly install Hulu on an LG TV device. These are the latest methods in 2022.

Method #1: Using the Search Bar

  1. Turn on your LG TV. Enter “Hulu” into the search bar.
  2. Once you see “Hulu” in the search list, click Install. The app is now loaded on your TV screen.
  3. Next, launch the Hulu app to sign up for a Hulu account.

Method #2: Using LG Content Store

Sometimes, you may not find Hulu with the LG TV search bar. In that case, try finding it in the LG Content Store using the steps below:

  1. Press the “Home” button on your TV remote.
  2. Now, choose “More Apps,” and click on “LG Content Store.”
  3. In the store, browse through the premium choices.
  4. Look for the Hulu app in this list and click “Install.”
  5. You are now ready to begin streaming using the Hulu app.           
Info

If you still don’t see the Hulu app after following the methods above, the LG TV probably does not support Hulu. The LG TV needs to have at least webOS 3.5 or higher to support the Hulu app.

  5. Enter the IP address of MediaStreamer DNS using the setup web page.

  2. Next, choose the “Advanced” option and then click “Network.”
  3. Choose the “Wi-Fi” option and click “Edit.”
  4. You will find a checkbox next to the “Set Automatically” option; uncheck it.
