Hulu advertisements are not loading, screen is just static black
Hulu has a fairly naughty habit of not properly loading advertisements.
This happens at random times. Sometimes you'll get fully loaded advertisements, sometimes you get pixelated advertisements and sometimes you'll just see the round circle in the top left hand corner of your screen sitting there without even moving.
When this happens, you just need to wait for the advertisements to finish playing. Our best guess is that the adverts themselves are actually playing, but for whatever reason, be it a network fault or simply Hulu servers not playing well with their advertisers, it doesn't actually show up.
Waiting for a few minutes will eventually push you straight to the TV show or movie you want to watch.
Please bear in mind that this problem occurs even during in show adverts, so sometimes the screen will just go black and not show any adverts, but a few moments later your programme resumes as if nothing happened.
