Licensing error message with Hulu Plus on your PS4
We've been receiving some contacts with users running into a licensing error while attempting to stream Hulu Plus through the PlayStation 4.

The error says, "This application can not be started. This application can only be started by the user who has the license for it." 


We're sorry for the inconvenience, but the good news is that this is easily remedied. To get Hulu Plus back up and running, we'll simply have to ensure that the PS4 is set as the primary device for the PlayStation Network account. Here's how:

  • Go to Settings > PSN > Activate as your primary PS4
  • Then from the PSN menu select Restore Licenses


You can also check out the PlayStation Support site for some additional information regarding primary settings.
