Holographic dark energy with the Hubble radius as infrared cutoff has been considered as a candidate to explain the late-time cosmic acceleration and it can solve the coincidence problem. In this scenario, a non-zero equation of state is only possible if there is an interaction between dark energy and cold dark matter. In this paper, a set of phenomenological interactions is assumed and a detailed analysis of the possible values of the coupling constants is carried out, however the resulting matter power spectrum and cosmic microwave background temperature and polarization power spectra have a shape very far from the observed ones. These results rule out any value for the free parameters and it seems to indicate that the assumed interacting holographic dark energy with a Hubble-scale cutoff is not viable to explain the accelerated expansion of the Universe, when cosmological data are taken into account.
