Hulu Error 94

What Causes “Error 94” on Hulu?

The causes which trigger this particular error are:

  • Corrupt Cache: In some cases, the launch configurations that are cached by the devices might be corrupt for one or more devices involved in this process. These configurations are cached to decrease loading times and to provide a more smooth experience but they can sometimes get corrupted and end up hijacking the app.
  • Internet Connection: It is very important that the internet connection that is being used to stream is stable and has enough upstream and downstream speed. This can prevent the application from being able to maintain a stable connection with its servers
  • Outdated Application: if the application has been outdated, the streaming process might get affected. This is because the servers are constantly updated to accommodate new enhancements and if the application gets outdated the streaming process gets disturbed.
  • Outdated Software: Sometimes, if the software of the device that is being used to stream gets outdated and this prevents the streaming process from being able to function correctly. This can be due to an incompatibility between the application and the software.
  • VPN: If you are using a VPN to hide your location from the servers or for any other purpose, it is recommended that you disable the VPN because it can sometimes cause incompatibility between the ISP and the servers. This occurs primarily due to the fact that the server might flag your connection as suspicious if you are masking your location.
