    I am getting ads as well. I am new to AdGuard, but with AdBlock Plus, the following filters would work to block all the ads on there:

    a.huluad.com
    ib.huluim.com
    ads.hulu.com
    ll.a.hulu.com
    @@||ll.a.hulu.com/published/*.mp4
    @@||ll.a.hulu.com/published/*.flv
    @@||ads.hulu.com/published/*.mp4
    @@||ads.hulu.com/published/*.flv
    .hulu.com/*revenue/
    Ads.hulu.com
    Doubleclick.net
    Googlesyndication.com
    http://*.lightningcast.com/*
    http://ads.hulu.com/*
    lightningcast.net
    ll.a.hulu.com
    p.hulu.com
    t2.hulu.com
    track.hulu.com

    These would not get rid of the countdown timer though.

    Cannot check it right now (need time to find proxy to get to hulu).

    You can add these filters to Adguard's user filter (but don't forget to disable hulu rules in English filter)

    I too am using Google Chrome Adguard extension 5.9.1081.5529. I have enabled the following filters: English filter, Spyware and tracking filter and Social media filter. These filters are all updated to the latest version.
    I too am getting ads when watching Hulu. This is the first time I've gotten access to Hulu. Please try and test Hulu using the Google Chrome extension Hola found http://hola.org This extension is free and simple to use. I just found out about it myself just now and its worked for me. I'm in Australia.
    I just started watching a video, and the ads timer is running and the ads at the beginning is showing.

    Please help ASAP.

    PS: I too am a new Adguard user after getting so frustrated with AdMuncher lately with its inability to filter HTTPS. How long does it take for them to get that option added? Adguard just works great with HTTPS sites. I hope to help improve Adguard for all of us by finding bugs and ads and issues. This is my first issue so far....

    Hi!

    You can block it with the following rules (add them to user filter):
    Code:
    ||a.huluad.com^
    ||ads.hulu.com^
    ||p.hulu.com^
    ||t2.hulu.com^
    ||track.hulu.com^
    ||ib*.huluim.com^
    @@.hulu.com/published/*.mp4
    @@.hulu.com/published/*.flv
    
    These rules will block hulu ads but you'll see the following message and there's still ad time counter:
    http://screencast.com/t/PW7M3gIW

    That's why we have not added these rules to english filter.
