- Wait 60 seconds for your devices to cool off.

- Power on the devices.
- Open Hulu and check if it streams properly. If yes, then the issue is fixed. If the problem lingers on, please try Fix 2, below.
Fix 2: Check your Internet connection
A poor internet connection may also be the cause of the Hulu 94 error. To rule this out as a possibility, simply check your Hulu app and the device you stream Hulu on (and sometimes other devices on your network) to see if there is any connection problem.
If they’re all connected to an up and running network, please move on to Fix 3, to further troubleshoot the issue; if either of them cannot go on the internet, then perhaps you should look into the network problems first.
Fix 3: Clear cache and data
Cache is often used to store information in order to reduce loading times. Sometimes though, the information may be outdated or otherwise incorrect, causing streaming issues (ERROR94 Failed to load error is one of them).

Clear cache and data on Fire TV and Fire TV Stick: Head to Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications > Hulu. Then, select both Clear Cache and Clear Data.
Clear cache on iPhone and iPad: Firstly check how much space Hulu is taking up on your device: Heading to Settings > General > iPhone Storage > select Hulu. To clear space, simply delete and remove the app.
Clear cache on AppleTV: Uninstall the Hulu app > Reinstall the Hulu app.
Once you have cleared cache on your device, open Hulu to check if the loading issue is resolved. If it still fails to load, please move on to Fix 4, below.
