hulu Outside the US
Apparently Hulu has been around for quite a while in the US, but being outside of the US, we aren’t able to access hulu since it is only available to people living in the US.
Getting Hulu outside the US – in 2 easy steps:
1. Subscribe to a reputable US-based VPN. I personally like Streaming VPN for their customer service, speed and pricing. They also offer a free trial (in case you want to try it).
This past year, I had the pleasure of interning in Los Angeles at a modeling agency. It was an amazing experience to be a part of American food, American culture and most importantly, American TV. When I was there, a good friend of mine introduced me to Hulu. After trying it once, I was addicted. I needed it in Canada.
Unfortunately when I got back to Canada, licensing rules and IP addresses stopped me. When you try to watch anything, you get the Hulu black screen of ‘blockage’.
Now, I can get my fill of hulu Canada to watch my favorite American programming. This also means you can create your own hulu Canada. Happy Canada hulu -ing!
Fortunately, despite no Hulu Canada, we can actually access a US server here in Canada to ‘Americanize’ our IP address and get hulu anywhere regardless of your city, country or location (for me it is in BC, but for you, it may be somewhere else in Canada).
A friend of mine told me about using a VPN services to access hulu outside the US and I thought it would be way too complicated but, I was proven wrong.
Through a VPN, your computer basically gets a US-based IP address which basically makes it look like you are living in the US and from there, you can access Hulu Canada (or anywhere in the world for that matter). The process is SUPER simple and requires next to NO technical knowledge. Moreover, it can work on any platform including Windows, Mac, Linux or even a your android, iPad or iPhone. Whether you are the the United Kingdom (UK), Ireland, Denmark or Germany, happy hulu!
Have a great day… next up? Time to conquer Mt. Fiji! Hopefully find another technological wonder there. Hope this helps all you . Let me know if you come across any other ways or have other suggestions. I’m all ears!
BTW – for those of you curious about other benefits of a VPN, this is according to Utah State University:
VPN gives extremely secure connections between private networks linked through the Internet. It allows your remote computer(s) to act as though they were on the same secure, local (USU) network. Makes it almost impossible for someone to tap or interfer with data in the VPN tunnel.
