An additional solution  for error PLAUNK65

Error PLAUNK65 is not as common as PLRUNK15. It can also occur not only on Roku, but also on mobile devices, Play Station or smart TVs.

The above-mentioned solutions should work to recover streaming functionality altogether. Nevertheless, we recommend an additional one, namely clearing cached data.

On devices running on Windows, Android, or iOS, cached data is usually found in the storage/privacy section of the Settings menu.

You can also use professional software to get rid of unnecessary files, such as CCleaner. After downloading and installing the tool, run a scan, and allow the program to remove all unwanted files.

For Play Station, you have to completely turn off the device, unplug the power cord from the back of the device, wait for a few minutes, then plug the cord back in and restart the device.

On Apple TV you need to uninstall and reinstall the app to clear cache and data.

For Xbox One see the following steps:

  1. Go to Menu.
  2. Choose My Games and Apps > Apps.
  3. Highlight the Hulu.
  4. Hit menu on your controller.
  5. Tap on the Manage Apps > Clear saved data.
