HULU- NETWORK SPEED REQUIREMENTS

For all streaming services, there are certain network speed requirements that must be met in order to stream properly.

Hulu Requirements

Hulu requires certain qualifications to be met before titles will stream.  For a smooth playback experience, a broadband internet connection is recommended.

Hulu requires a download speed of at least 3 Mbps (Megabits per second) for High Definition streaming.

HuluPlus requires a download speed of at least 1 Mbps for Standard Definition streaming.

Note: This does not mean that if your network meets the minimum requirements that you will have uninterrupted playback.

Perform a Network Speed Test

The network speed can be tested by using the Vudu application installed on the device. Use the following steps to check the network speed:

Select Vudu from the Home Theater System’s Premium Apps Menu.

Scroll over to the My Vudu tab from the Vudu home page.

Highlight Info & Settings in the My Vudu page.

Start the test and allow the minute to elapse to get a good idea of what bandwidth you have available for wired/wireless streaming.

Note: For the best streaming experience, LG recommends a download speed of at least 5Mbps. If your network speed meets the requirements, check for software updates.
