The online streaming service Hulu has been hit with a class-action lawsuit, Deadline.com reports. At issue, according to the report, is the service’s automatic renewals.

The lawsuit alleges that since December 2010, Hulu “has made automatic renewal offers throughout California but failed to specify the terms ‘in a clear and conspicuous manner,’ charged cards or accounts without subscribers’ ‘affirmative consent’ and ‘failed to provide an acknowledgement that includes the automatic renewal or continuous service offer terms, cancellation policy, and information regarding how to cancel in a manner that is capable of being retained by the consumer,’” the story notes.

Plaintiff Nathan Kruger and others who upgraded to Hulu Plus want a jury trial, restitution, declaratory and injunctive relief and attorneys’ fees, the story says.
