After completing these steps, you should be able to use the desired add-on. However, sometimes users can’t get these add-ons due to multiple reasons. So let’s check out these issues in the next section of this article.

Why am I unable to access some Add-Ons?

Some Hulu Add-Ons only work with designated subscription plans. For example, if you have a Hulu+Live TV subscription, then you can access all the add-ons, including entertainment, unlimited screening, Spanish, and sports. However, the basic plans will provide add-ons like ESPN+, HBO Max, Showtime, etc.

In some cases, we accidentally choose different add-ons. But no need to worry as you can cancel them easily. While these can be canceled, your money won’t be returned to your account after completing the purchase. Let’s look at the cancelation procedure down below.

How to cancel the Hulu Add-Ons?

You can complete the procedure by following these simple steps:

  1. Open Hulu’s official website or app and log in with your credentials.
  2. Navigate your name, initial at the rightmost corner and select “Account.”
  3. Now access your “Subscription” and select “Manage Add-Ons.”
  4. Finally, de-select the desired Add-Ons and click “Review Changes.”
  5. After confirming, select ‘Confirms’ to finalise your changes.
