    Has anyone else had problems with the Hulu Plus portal for the ATV?

    Recently, my fiancee started watching an NBC show of which there are a dozen or so seasons on Hulu. The problem is, some of the season and episodes will work fine, while others will give an error when trying to play (I think it says something about the content not being available). At first I thought it was a problem with the ATV3, since I sometimes get weird errors with Netflix too. I rebooted it and the same problem occurred. I tried it on my old ATV2 and the same thing happens. It's not like it's specific seasons that are blocked, just seemingly random episodes within a given season. Some work, and some don't

    On the iPad and the computer, these seasons and episodes play just fine. I finally resorted to AirPlay mirroring from the iPad, but that's annoying when I want to use the iPad and she wants to watch television.

    Have you looked at the episodes on an actual computer? What I noticed about a season from NBC is all episodes were showing up but they weren't available. They showed expired on my computer. Eventually they showed up and I watched them but it was odd. I wish the interface were closer or more specific like on the web interface.

    Yes, I have been able to watch the problematic episodes on both the computer and my iPad. I haven't tried the Hulu desktop app.

    I think it's just a bug in the Hulu app for ATV.
