    The Hulu watchlist functionality is messed up regardless of platform, unrelated to the AppleTV... :(

    I have had very good luck with the Hulu WatchList except it is not my userid/profile like Netflix. However, I have recently switched to using WatchAid which brings in content from all of my Apps (Hulu, Netflix, CBS, HBO etc) so that I now have a personal Watch List since it is based on iCloud ID. We have multiple TV's in the house so some have a different iCloud ID Logged in. Just wish there was a FAST SWITCH Option to have multiple iCloud ID Logged into the same TV.

    I was hoping the New TV App from Apple would as good as WatchAid or better but so far in the beta I am not that impressed (only on the iOS so far). Somehow, I think the design is a problem in that it may rely heavily on the Apps themselves. WatchAid works independent of the Apps from Open Source Guides (I think).

    The Apple TV app usually fails to update my watchlist too (the watchlist itself is OK on the PC or an iPad though). What you can do is to force quit the app (double tap the home button and swipe up on the app). After restarting, it will usually refresh the watchlist. It should be fixed though.

    Thanks Rigby. I had the same problem but your suggestion fixed it. But what a nuisance.
