How to log in to a TV-connected device with an activation code

Jul 20, 2017

Activating a TV-connected device* on

  1. From the main screen of the application, select Log in
  2. Then select Activate on a computer to get your unique Device Activation Code (for example, 6K47J3)
  3. Visit (and sign in, if prompted) and enter the activation code displayed on your TV screen
  4. Click Activate and within about 30 seconds, your device will be automatically logged in to your Hulu account

*Please note that mobile devices, as well as some TV-connected devices, do not have an activation code. In that case, you can activate the Hulu application by logging in with your email and password.
