HULU SUBSCRIPTION IS JUST NOT WORTH HAVING

NETFLIX IS BETTER THAN HULU



I had to cancel my Hulu Subscription. I liked Hulu. I was comfortable with it. I also have Netflix and other services. But what Hulu has done this week to it's customers is so horrible, I just decided the hell with a company who operates this way.


They changed the format this week. Nothing worked. I called Hulu, waited over 45 minutes to speak to someone. When I finally got a representative, I told her the problem and what she said next was a horror.


This incompetent Hulu customer service agent said, "You know, Hulu is a subscription service and I could just cancel". I was flabbergasted. Here I was calling in a complaint and she was telling me to cancel. I asked for a Supervisor. Waited, waited, a hour goes by and nothing. I hung up. I tried several times that night. Same thing. We are experiencing a higher caller volume, your wait would be approx 15 to 30 min. Then after some sales pitch, the recorder comes on and says 35-45 minutes. I just hang up again. This happened many times. I canceled Hulu. There website says my account is valid till next month, since it was paid for. Later in the night I try to get on Hulu. Says my account is no longer valid. So now I want a refund. I call and call. Can't get through. I start TWEETING to Hulu and to my 44 thousand followers on Twitter. No response from Hulu. I post on Facebook to everyone and to Hulu. No response.


So now it's two days later and it is after 2 am in the morning. Called Hulu. Says the same thing. Wait time 15 to 30 min, then another sales pitch and then tells me 35 to 45 minutes. I am sitting here with speaker phone on. Must be the same wait message to everyone.


I want my money back. That's all I know. I pay $11.99 a month, not a lot but I want it back. To have customer service that you can not reach, to have customer service that ignores Twitter, Facebook and phone calls is all I need to go. And I am asking anyone else who is having problems with this company, just go to their website and cancel. These corporations have to learn.


Netflix is better anyway. Easy to navigate and you do not get treated so bad by customer service. Amazon is great, but not so easy to navigate. Then with the ROKU BOX you have so many free streaming services.


How do I contact Hulu to cancel?

To cancel your Hulu subscription:

log in to your Hulu account.


Access your Account by going to the profile name on the top righthand corner of the page.


Under Your Subscription, HIT: Cancel Subscription.


Provide a reason for your decision to cancel Hulu.


Select Take Offer to finalize your cancellation.

SARAH PAULSON SITS DOWN WITH LARRY KING NOW


Larry King Chats With Sarah Paulson


“The People v. O.J. Simpson” star Sarah Paulson sits down with Larry King on the Emmy-nominated series “Larry King Now,” where she explains why she hasn’t seen the acclaimed series, weighs in on gender inequality in Hollywood, and talks “American Horror Story” season 6.



Despite the massive critical acclaim surrounding her portrayal as Marcia Clark in “American Crime Story,” Sarah Paulson reveals that she is not watching the hit series because she is “one who is very likely to sort of pick everything apart.” The actress explains, “I’m very self critical, so I figured I should just let myself enjoy this and let people say nice things and enjoy being a part of something that is such a phenomenon.”



Larry also played a clip for Sarah Paulson, when Marcia Clark revealed recently on “Larry King Now” what it’s been like watching Sarah Paulson portray her.



“The People v. O.J. Simpson” star has highlighted the sexism Marcia Clark endured during the trial in the mid-90s, and now she comments on modern-day gender inequality in the entertainment industry. “No change can come about unless people start talking,” she presses. The actress remarks that gender inequality in Hollywood is “always getting incrementally better, but we’ve certainly got a long way to go. We haven’t made that much progress.”



After confirming her support for Hillary Clinton, Sarah Paulson voices her concern about GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s candidacy expressing, “it’s a little scary.” She describes her worry, saying, “It started out as a funny element to the campaign season, and then all of a sudden it became all too real.”

SEAN ASTIN ON NEW GOONIES AND HILLARY CLINTON

****
LARRY KING POLITICKING
****



Sean Astin Chats With Larry King




Actor & filmmaker Sean Astin ("The Lord of the Rings," "Goonies," "Rudy") tells Larry King about the moment Hillary Clinton earned his support and what led to his twitter feud with Adam Baldwin over the recent violence in Baltimore. Plus, he opens up about "Goonies 2" rumors.




KING: You got into a little Twitter tiff with fellow actor Adam Baldwin of ‘Full Metal Jacket’ fame and ‘The Last Ship,’ when he took a seemingly critical view of a tweet you sent out regarding Baltimore. Let me get it straight. You tweeted, “Baltimore’s situation is so distressing. Angry can be useful but in modern media era, chaos plays into the hands of authority’s. Civil disobedience.” Baldwin replied to Sean Astin, “Can’t have your cake and eat it too. Depend on big government, get bigger and bigger government policing. Anarchy is just a transitional phase.” You responded, “Blocking you for a while, man. Your flame throwing nonsense does a disservice to conservatives.”



ASTIN: Yeah.



KING: Is he still blocked?



ASTIN: Yeah, but I’d unblock him now if I wanted to. That was a specific moment. First of all, I love him. When I see him in these convention settings that we go to, I give him a big hug. I was trying, and I’ve tried this a couple of times when these moments happen, to, I think once I was on a plane, I think during the Ferguson thing I was flying back from Brazil, and I wanted to see if I could make some difference from the business class wifi going over the thing, and trying to say that civil disobedience, like stopping impeding business, impeding the mechanics of government is in bounds, as far as I’m concerned. Ghandi did it, you know-



KING: Martin Luther King did it.



ASTIN: Martin Luther King did it, but non-violent. So, right. So what Adam was doing in that moment - and there had been a long conversation before that -- and, he just has a very... he enjoys mixing it up. He enjoys mixing it up. He’s got a very strong conservative viewpoint, and I agree with a lot of things that he says. But in that particular moment I was trying to get people to do something. And they did it, without me! Without Sean.



KING: Does he think civil disobedience is anarchy?

RICHARD DREYFUSS WITH LARRY KING ON POLITICS


Richard Dreyfuss On PoliticKING




Larry King Guest Richard Dreyfuss explains his movement to bring American civics back into the classroom and why he doesn't vote.



DREYFUSS: So all the guys that are in Congress now, the Young Turks, and the Republican party, they never took civics. They never studied the Constitution, they never studied the Bill of Rights, and that’s why they say such stupid things. There’s two points I want to make here: First, Inarguable points. No one in this country understands the stories on the front page of any newspaper in this country. No one. We don’t understand the bail out, Wall Street, foreign policy, the fed, the prime mortgage controversy, the bank-- we don’t understand any story on the front page. Two: Western kids are now joining ISIS.


KING: Not in multitudes.


DREYFUSS: Well, it starts with a trickle. Why? Because even though it sounds crazy, it’s the only spiritual movement being talked about in the media. No one talks about the values of the enlightenment that made strong the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Nobody talks about the secular faith of the United States or western Europe. And that’s why kids who grow up with a spiritual yearning of one kind or another, find themselves taken by these people.


KING: But why did we stop? Civics was required when I was in eighth grade.


DREYFUSS: Well they’ll say that part of Common Core, and No Child Left Behind, but it’s really not, and it’s been relegated to the idea that it’s politically rude to discuss things that maybe certain sections of the country disagree with, or it’s a controversial issue to say that there’s such a thing as America being responsible for the greatest political miracle in history, which is true. And our kids don’t know that story anymore. And that’s a shame.


DREYFUSS: You know, if I were a history teacher, I’d say this, any kids coming into my classroom I’d say this: How many kids here have the same politics as their parents? And whatever number raises their hand, I say, for this semester you take the opposite. You have to. So that you understand the opposing view. Every paper you write, every debate you’re in, you have to be opposing your parent’s political politics. And that way, you start people thinking for themselves. And our country right now is in a complete, vivid, unmistakable decay. Everyone knows it, everyone feels it, when you think of the future of America, it makes you uneasy, instead of comfortable.

RUMER WILLIS CHATS WITH 'LARRY KING NOW' ON ORA.TV


Rumer Willis With Larry King




Rumer Willis – actor, singer, and child to Hollywood's former first couple, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore – joins Larry King on the Emmy nominated series “Larry King Now” to discuss her turn on Season 20 of ‘Dancing with the Stars’, why women's rights haven't come far enough, and what the world doesn't know about her parents.



‘Dancing With The Stars’ contestant Rumer Willis gave Larry the scoop on season 20 and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy. “I think it’s going to be his year. Sometimes when you’re doing a show that’s a reality version of ballroom dancing, it can become more about the costumes or the show you put on, but what I really like about him is he really cares about the dancing and keeping the integrity of what you’re actually doing. He’s definitely a strict teacher, though.” On the training process, Rumer told Larry, “We try and get at least four or five hours of rehearsal in a day.”



The daughter of Hollywood stars Bruce Willis and Demi Moore opened up to Larry about the time surrounding her parents split, “I am so thankful and grateful that my parents made such an effort at that time. You know, I never had to split up vacations or split up birthdays. They always made an effort to do all of the family events still together. They made such an effort to still have our family be as one unit as opposed to two separate things.” Plus, on life in the tabloids, Rumer said “If you want to judge me, I’m totally fine with that. And if you don’t like me—but just take five minutes to get to know me, and if after that your opinion stays the same and you don’t like me, then that’s your prerogative.”



Supporter of the Free the Nipple campaign Rumer Willis discussed with Larry her thoughts on inequality towards women, “If our total value of men in the world was based on how they looked or, you know, if they had a six-pack or if they had tight abs or big arms, half of the men in this world would not be working. Yet, women somehow are held to this standard if you don’t have perfect breasts or you know if you don’t look a certain way or if you don’t fit into a certain size clothing, then somehow you’re undesirable or you’re not as valuable.”



Lastly, Willis revealed what she’s learned from mother Demi Moore, “I’ve learned a lot of my - the integrity that I try to hold for myself in everything that I do and the value I try and put out in the world. She always says, live in whatever your integrity is, and go out to the world and present yourself how you want to present yourself and how you want people to see you.”

She was so pretty, and she was so alive and so bright. You could see Johnny Carson just loved her.” — On Joan’s comedic past.

Betty White With Larry King



Age is only a number for the unstoppable Betty White! Using her unrivaled wit, the beloved 92 year old charms Larry King with tales from the Golden Girls era, comments on today’s troubled young stars and even gets a visit from the Kings' pooch, Biscuit.


During her "Larry King Now" interview, the "Hot in Cleveland" star expressed her opinions on gay rights:


“I don’t care whom you sleep with. It’s what kind of a human being are you [that's what matters to me]. I don’t understand [why people are anti-gay]. It’s such a personal private business and it’s none of mine.”


"You're so right," Larry King said in reply.


Betty White is the latest celebrity to speak out on the issue.


She also shared that she is infuriated by "ungrateful" young stars like Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber, and Chris Brown because of their selfish actions.

RUSSELL SIMMONS COMES CLEAN WITH LARRY KING

Russell Simmons With Larry King




Russell Simmons wants to do for meditation what he did for hip hop: make it mainstream. The business magnate and industry icon discusses the power of a quiet mind, of Justin Bieber, and of persistence in this wise and wide-ranging interview that aired today on Larry King Live. 


Among many topics, Russell Simmons discussed segregation in Hollywood: “It’s still a sad reality of Hollywood. Can you name a black agent?”


Simmons recaped his many entrepreneur endeavors and why he has “this belief that you cannot fail until you quit.” 


Simmons also weighed in on gay rights and why he’s a fan of Macklemore: “I want artists to tell the truth. But I am also a fan of social activists who are rappers. Gay rights has been a big deal for me.”


Social activism and celebrities using their influence to bring about necessary change – including being involved with the Occupy movement – is important to Russell Simmons: "Once something goes pop, once it goes commercial, when everybody's talking about it, then politicians have to move...Our democracy is deeply flawed."
