How To: Make Sure Hulu Never Recommends Your Least Favorite Show Again

Make Sure Hulu Never Recommends Your Least Favorite Show Again

Hulu has a lot of content — with thousands of movies and TV series, there's bound to be a few titles here and there you simply don't like. If Hulu is inexplicably recommending garbage you don't want to watch, there's a new way to stop that from happening.

Unfortunately, it does not appear the aptly named "Stop Suggesting" feature is live at this time. Hulu announced this new function on May 17, providing an example of what users can expect when the new update drops.

If a show or movie that you don't like pops up when scrolling through your Hulu lineup, you can simply tap "Stop Suggesting" underneath the title. Hulu will never show you that title again. Over time, your lineup should, for the most part, recommend only titles that interest you.

(1) Current version. (2) Updated version.

If you don't want to wait for "Stop Suggesting" before controlling what content you see on Hulu, just avoid the "Lineup" page for now. Stick to searching for and adding shows to "My Stuff" — that way, you'll only see TV shows and movies you know you like.

"Stop Suggesting" appears to be just one of the ways Hulu is looking to make their users' viewing experience better. However, so long as they don't cut the titles that Netflix does, users will probably put up with a few inconveniences here or there.
