With so many options streaming content to your eyeballs, something must give. Your wallet simply needs a break. If Hulu is on your media blackout list, we’ll walk you through how to delete your Hulu account and history. First, though, there are a few things you should know.
You can’t simply delete an account. Hulu forces you to cancel your subscription before accepting a deletion request. Of course, if you simply need a temporary break, you can pause the service. Closing it entirely means canceling first and then deleting in hopes you’ll have second thoughts.
Next, Hulu removed the tool for eliminating your watch history. Instead, you can delete titles from Suggestions and Keep Watching. We provide examples of both at the end of this guide.
