Hulu was down for iOS, Apple device users Tuesday

Users had trouble accessing Hulu Tuesday morning as many users reported the streaming service was down. 

Down Detector reported a spike of more than 3,520 problems as of 5:45 a.m. PT. Many people with an Apple device trying to access Hulu’s iOS app were experiencing issues with video streaming and logging into their account. 

The issue appeared to affect mainly the United States, according to Down Detector’s error reports. 

Hulu was aware of the issue and tweeted on Tuesday that it was working to fix it. 

“Sorry for the interruption! We’re currently investigating this issue with a high priority, and we hope to have a fix in place soon. Thanks a bunch for your patience!,” Hulu’s official support account tweeted. By 10 a.m. the problem appeared to have been fixed.

Frustrated Hulu users took to social media to complain about the streaming service being down, and the hashtag #huludown is even trending on Twitter.

Me = Crawling back to Netflix after a few weeks of abandonment.

Apple's spatial audio feature, which works with the company's AirPods Pro earbuds and AirPods Max headphones, offers a pretty cool way to get immersive audio from both music and movies. Support for spatial audio, however, is far from universal when it comes to streaming video services, with the most notable holdout being Netflix. But that's about to change, aswe've had confirmation from Netflix that the streaming giant has begun to roll out spatial audio support to iOS devices.

Spatial audio, in Apple's world, works in two different ways. If you're listening to Apple Music on an iOS device (and soon, Android devices, too), you can use any set of headphones or earbuds to experience tracks that have been recorded in Dolby Atmos Music the way they were meant to be heard. Spatial audio provides that wide and airy 3D-like sound that typifies Dolby Atmos Music.
