Why Are My Hulu Commercials in Spanish?

Hulu is one of the top streaming sites that consumers all over the world can use to watch their favorite movies and T.V. shows. It initially launched in 2007 and was free at the time but supported with ads. It later developed subscriptions. The basic plan still holds ads, while the more expensive premium gets rid of almost all ads. The basic plan does not give you much control over which ads you see or relate too, but Hulu does try to personalize them for you.

So why are your Hulu ads in Spanish? Well, it is all based on your programming response. If you have used google to look up one thing that could be related to Spanish, your account remembers that. So, even though Hulu tries to personalize ads for you, it may not always work.

Once the programming has been done, it can be tough to change. There are other ways to skip the ads, but they will cost more, and you will have to choose if it is worth the extra money or not. Hulu ads are not very long, so it might be worth it to stick to the basic plans.

Can I change the commercial language?

No, you don’t have much control over this. There is no setting that can help you change the commercials. You can try to contact customer support, but it is in the programming of your account, they may be able to make a note, but they will not be able to program it for you. If you ever googled one Mexico vacation, there is a chance you will receive ads in Spanish. The best you can do is stick it out for the two minutes the ad runs. Also, over time the programming will change to keep up with your preferences and cater to more personalized ads.

The great news about Hulu is that even though you can’t change the language of the ads, there are options to change subtitles and dubbing to the language of your choice in the settings. This can be a  lifesaver if a movie is not in English, or if you prefer any other language outside of English.

When do you see ads on Hulu?

Ads run every so often on the basic Hulu plan. You will see ads at the beginning and end of a show, and throughout it. This almost mimics how a regular T.V. program would be run. When you hover over the bottom of the screen or press the pause button during a show, you will see markers indicating where the ads will stop and play.

Ads are tricky, you may be thinking you can fast forward through them, but Hulu does not allow you to do that. You have to watch the ads depending on the account you have chosen. There is a vast majority of titles that are ad-free, so you may want to browse through those first.

How you can skip almost all ads on Hulu?

On Hulu, there are different plans to choose from, and some of them have ad-free options! So, if you really can’t handle any ads at all, this will be the best option for you.

  • Hulu premium- This has no ads and runs for $11.99 a month. This is a great way to skip the ads, for a low cost. It is just a few more dollars than the basic plan and might make you much happier.
  • Hulu premium and Live T.V.- This is much more expensive than the two other plans you have the option of choosing. This is $60.99 a month, but you will get 70 channels of basic T.V. this means you can watch your favorite sporting events, and favorite live T.V. shows. It is a pretty good deal for those who don’t want to pay a big cable company. It is one of the cheaper options to gain access to these channels.

Those are the two options you can pick from Hulu’s plans. If you already have the basic account but want to upgrade, you can easily do that online. All you have to do is go to settings, make sure your payment method is up to date, and upgrade your plan.

Premium accounts but still seeing ads

I know this might seem frustrating because you have decided to pay the extra big bucks for ads free, but there is a catch. If you choose the account that hosts live T.V. channels, you will continue to see ads. Why? Since it is live, and all of the live channels have their own ads, you will see them as well. They won’t be personalized to you, but they will be what everyone in the country is watching; they’re on the same channel. There are also some T.V. shows that will still play ads due to licensing. These shows include Grey’s Anatomy, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and How to Get Away with Murder.

Final thoughts

If you don’t want to change accounts or upgrade, then you also have the option of reaching out to the Hulu community and giving your thoughts on the ads. This might help make a change in the ads that everyone is seeing, and might make you feel better. There is no guaranteed way to get rid of the ads or change them without upgrading your account. Try to remember that it has to do with the programming and may be connected to something you recently looked at using your laptop or smartphone.

Hulu is a convenient option; you can watch it almost anywhere if you have the app. It makes it great for kids who need something on a long car ride, if you’re stuck in the airport for a few hours, or somewhere alone for the night. Ads can be a little annoying; Spanish ads can confuse you if you don’t speak the language, but try to remember it’s not the end of the world, and you still have a great way to watch T.V.
