2. Skip Ads By Opening Hulu In Two Tabs:-
You can open the same Hulu program in the two tabs, mute the one tab while enjoying the show on another tab. You can find the ad in the track bar and forward the show to that mark in the second tab to skip the ad.
That means if the ad starts in the first tab, you can mute it and switch to the second tab to continue watching and vice versa.
3. Refresh The Hulu Program Page:-
As we know that Hulu earns revenue from the ads and monthly subscription plans. These ads vary according to the duration of the video, the minimum duration of the ads is 30 seconds and the maximum duration is 4 minutes. For example, when you start watching the video the duration of the ad will be around 30 seconds but when the watching time is increased the ads time also increased can go up to 4 minutes. And these ads are enough to ruin the interest and excitement of watching the video.
So from this, we acknowledge that if we have recently landed on the Hulu page then the shown ads duration will be short. So we recommended you refresh the Hulu page from time to time in order to skip watching the long ads. This is a very simple step to skip the long-duration ads but you cannot block Hulu ads.
4. Fast Forward Hulu Ads Using Enounce MySpeed:-
You can fast forward the ads instead of blocking and skipping the ads. Enounce MySpeed is the software that lets you increase the playback speed of the video. This software can fast forward the 4-minute ad to around 1 minute.
That means you need not wait for long to skip the ads. The main drawback of this app that you need to pay $29.99 to purchase this app, this is not available for free. Also, Enounce MySpeed offers seven days of the trial period.
5. Web Filtering:-
Hulu advertisements can also be blocked using web filtering available under Access Control or Parental Control in your router settings. Below are the steps to block Hulu ads using a web filtering option.
