How to fix the Hulu P-TS207 error code

It can be hard to pinpoint exactly what the issue is right away, but we can walk you through a series of troubleshooting tips to help you figure out a solution.

Is your internet working?

A slow or faulty internet connection can be a very common cause for error code P-TS207 to show up when trying to enjoy Hulu. The streaming service recommends at least a 3Mbps bandwidth for general content, 8Mbps for live streams, and 16Mbps for 4K content. Anything under that may start giving you trouble.

First, try to use the internet with another device connected to the same Wi-Fi network you’re trying to use. If everything works correctly, run a speed test to see if your connection meets the minimum data requirements. We like You can also check if your internet connection is even working. This is easy; do anything that requires an internet connection on any of your devices. A simple Google search will do.

Given that your internet connection is not the culprit, you can move on to the next section. If it is, though, you should try restarting your router. Every router has different methods for rebooting, but some have a reset button, or can be restarted using an app. If yours doesn’t, simply unplugging the router, waiting a few minutes, and plugging it back in will do the trick.

If restarting the router doesn’t help, you should call your internet service provider to investigate the matter further.

If you’re using mobile data, there is a chance your connection is slow, or maybe you turned off mobile data by accident. Let’s help you check if your mobile data is on.

How to turn on mobile data on Android:

  1. Launch the Settings app.
  2. Go into Network & internet.
  3. Tap on your network in the SIMs.
  4. Make sure Mobile Data is toggled on.
  5. You can also turn on Roaming, but remember this may incur extra charges, depending on your mobile plan.

Check if Hulu is down

While it’s uncommon to see a Hulu P-TS207 error code due to server issues, it’s a possibility and worth checking. We recommend using a third-party outage service like This is a crowd-sourced website that collects reports from users to find out if a service is down. It even has a live map to see if the issue is local or widespread.

You can also check Hulu Support on Twitter. The company will often announce problems there.

If Hulu is down, you can do nothing but wait it out. Kill time with another streaming service, maybe?

Are there too many devices connected to your router?

There is another factor that can affect your internet performance, even if your service is operating correctly. All routers have a limit as to how many simultaneous connections they can handle. Internet service providers are known for providing basic routers, often only supporting about 10-15 concurrent connections. Try powering off other devices or sign them off the Wi-Fi network and see if that helps your connection.

If you often face internet issues caused by too many device connections, you should consider upgrading. Most Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E routers can support 50 or more simultaneous connections.

Restart the device

Download the content instead of streaming it

Are you using a VPN?

Even the best VPNs can create conflicts when connecting to a service. Sometimes, VPN connections are slower, or can interfere with Hulu’s servers for many reasons. Not to mention Hulu is only available in the US, and the service doesn’t exactly like it when you use a VPN to access it from another country.

Turn off your VPN and try to play your Hulu content again.
