Hulu Error Code P-ts207: 3 Solutions That Worked

I was watching the World Series on Fox via Hulu.

Just when Mancini made a diving stop, my TV screen turned blue.

Hulu displayed the error p-ts207, which said, “We’re having trouble playing this”.

I tried restarting the app, but it failed.

While other channels worked, Fox struggled to load.

I searched the internet for a workaround, hoping to snap back into the match quickly.

I found a method that worked.

If you’re facing the Hulu error p-ts207, download the Hulu app on your phone and screencast the channel onto your TV. If your TV doesn’t have a built-in Chromecast, then screen mirror Hulu from your phone to your TV.

Screencast Hulu From Your Phone To Your TV

I know this doesn’t fix the error.

But I used this workaround to resume playing Hulu on my TV.

This is because the Hulu app was working fine on my phone.

To screencast Hulu from your phone,

  • Connect your TV and smartphone to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Open the Hulu app.
  • Select the channel you want to play.
  • Click on the Screencast icon.
  • Select your TV from the list of devices.

If your TV doesn’t have a built-in Chromecast, use an HDMI cable and wireless display adapter to connect your phone to your TV.

Alternatively, you can also screen mirror your phone using a third-party app.

However, these apps are slow and choppy, so only do this if screencasting is not working properly. 

Use Hulu Credentials On Network Apps

If Hulu displays the error on all devices, use Hulu credentials on your TV network’s app.

Downloading the app for your TV network might consume some of your storage.

But the method is safe and works instantly.

Here’s how to do it,

  • Download the network app for your TV provider. I have a DIRECTV connection, so I needed to get their app.
  • Enter your Hulu credentials on the sign-in page.
  • Select Hulu as your TV provider.

This works for all Hulu-supported channels like Fox, CNBC, and ESPN.

It’s also an effective workaround if Hulu gives you the “Sorry, this channel is temporarily unavailable” error.

Update Your Hulu App

P-ts207 is a playback error.

You’re more likely to run into playback errors with an outdated app.

Hulu recommends updating the app to the latest version to fix playback errors.

To update the app on iOS,

  • Go to the App Store.
  • Search for the Hull app.
  • Click on update and install the app.

To update the app on an Android TV or smartphone,

  • Go to the Google Play Store.
  • Search for the Hulu app.
  • Tap on Update.

Updating the Hulu app is also known to get Hulu working on Samsung TVs.

Will Hulu Ever Fix The Playback Error?

I went through the support page on Hulu and found out that the problem is on Hulu’s end.

Hulu Support claims to fix the error p-ts207 with new updates.

There are only a few ways to fix it yourself until you wait for the latest update.

However, the problem with screencasting is it’s not easy on TV without an in-built Chromecast.

Downloading network apps on your TV takes up a lot of storage. Hence, it isn’t a permanent solution either.
