Update: Hulu Has Restored Their Roku Channel (A Manual Update Maybe Needed)

Update: Hulu has successfully restored their Hulu Roku Channel. If you are still seeing the old Hulu Roku Channel with the grey background updating your Roku will restore your Hulu experience.

To manually update your Roku start at the Roku home screen and select Settings. Next select System and there you will find an option to Update your Roku. Running a Roku update will restore Hulu’s Roku Channel.
