Lindsay Hayes

If you keep getting hit with Hulu error code P TS207, you most likely are dealing with some kind of playback issue, like a problem with your internet connection. You should be able to take care of it by either moving closer to your router or turning your router modem off and then back on again.

But also, the error can be software related. It might have been a while since you updated the Hulu app, so it might be bugging out. Try upgrading it and then check whether the error persists still.

Although I've been using Hulu for years, I've only got hit with the error once before. It was pretty easy to fix, as I figured I hadn't updated my Hulu app in a while. I decided to tell you how I did this, along with all the other potential fixes that you can try.


What Do You Do to Fix the Hulu Error Code P TS207?

There are many ways to fix the Hulu error code, but before I get to them, remember that the issue can be due to Hulu's servers being down. If this is the case, there's really nothing you can do other than wait it out.

You can actually find out if this is what you're dealing with by going to a server status page. There should be a message on it telling you that Hulu's currently not working.

Solution 1: Check Internet Connection

The first thing that you should try is checking your internet connection. Your internet speed might be especially slow. Now, if it's because of this, you'll have trouble loading other sites, and Hulu might keep buffering for you too. However, sites like Ookla can definitively help you figure this out.

Most of the time, your internet speed slows down when you have too many devices connected to your router. Try disconnecting them, or using the Hulu app when there aren't multiple devices connected.

But also, you can get hit with playback errors because of glitches on your Wi-Fi router. You should be able to sort this and get the streaming app working again by restarting your router modem.

On top of the above issues, you might be stuck with a poor internet connection because of some kind of problem on your internet service provider's end, like their network towers being down. You probably got a text message about this along with when it will be fixed.

Solution 2: Turn Off Your VPN

If you have a VPN currently running, the Hulu error code wouldn't be a surprise. You may keep getting hit with playback errors, as Hulu might be barring you from trying to bypass their geo-restrictions. Fixing this is pretty easy, as all you have to do is turn your VPN off.

On most devices, the process to follow is the same: all you have to do is launch the virtual private network, and then click on the Disconnect button.

Solution 3: Restart Your Streaming Device

You might be having trouble playing your shows because of an app glitch. If it's minor, you don't have to worry about taking care of it, as simply restarting your streaming device can help.

However, if the glitch is more stubborn, you might have to go ahead and force restart. It's a more comprehensive power cycle process that you can try on Androids and iPhones. You only have to hold the Power button a certain way to do it.

Solution 4: Update the Hulu Application

The Hulu app might be acting up on you because it's bugging out. You probably haven't updated the app in a while if this is the case. Immediately try updating the streaming service and see whether this helps. But remember to have a stable network connection first, as the update process can take forever otherwise.

The updating process is generally the same. You just have to go to your respective app store, like the Google Play Store, search for Hulu, and then click on the update button. All the latest patches should be installed, and the playback error should immediately be gone now.
