Question

Why does Hulu stop play saying other device is using Hulu?

I am watching an old TV show and periodically play back will stop, and a white on black screen message says only one device can be running Hulu at a time. The only option is to click to go to Devices on my account screen where THERE ARE NO DEVICES LISTED! I then use the back arrow to get the playback screen and resume watching for it to happen 5 minutes later. Why? How to fix/avoid? Thanx in advance.

Clarification Request
Hulu or Hulu Plus?

It's possible the TV needs updating but here we are and little to work with.

So you are running only one device but...

they won't let you? Maybe you have to register all devices even though only one can be use at a time (I am just guessing).

Good plan.

I'd unregister them all and add this one on it's own.

There was some chatter about this happening on some ISPs. But that's a long shot.

The OP needs to clarify a little. Hulu doesn't run on TVs yet. It's Hulu Plus or the Hulu Plus app. I know folk don't want to get technical but it is technical. Let's try to get the details straight here.
