How to get Hulu in Canadahulu in Canada

It is a sad, but true, fact that it is difficult to get Hulu in Canada.  What must make it even more frustrating is the sheer fact of proximity. The closest country to the US and Canada is not allowed to access premier programming.  And it’s not just Hulu that is forbidden fruit.  Netflix, Pandora, and others have been severely limited.

Get hulu in Canada the easy way

  1. Get a US-based VPN (We use Streaming VPN www.streamingvpn.com for a quality server and their customer support)
  2. Connect to the US server and that’s it.  Go to www.hulu.com

It’s a pity that you can’t watch Hulu in Canada without a VPN. Canada is America’s closest neighbor, geographically and culturally. However, we’ve got no choice but to play by the rules, and it seems that more and more these days, the cool stuff coming out of America is just not available in Canada – or available with restrictions.  Stuff like Canada Hulu, Netflix, and Pandora, or BBCiplayer are also blocked.  But there is hope for obtaining Hulu, Canada.

VPN (virtual private network) allows customers who want US content programming to access that programming from outside of the US. It does this by ‘tricking’ or ‘masking’ your IP address and making it look as if your IP address is located in the US. Getting Hulu in Canada is as simple as that. Some may argue the fact that gaining Hulu in Canada in this way isn’t ‘ethical’, but in reality it is totally legal, available, and affordable.  What isn’t moral or ethical is the fact that Hulu in Canada programming is being denied to viewers because of the greed of the networks and principalities.  Canada, at this present time, has no restrictions on the use of VPN services to access content outside of the country.  So, as you can see, there’s really nothing stopping you from enjoying Hulu in Canada.

Of course, the next step is actually getting hooked up with a VPN service, and that’s where many Hulu in Canada viewers bog down in the process. Well, there are several criteria that can assist you in making up your mind and getting the Hulu in Canada that you are looking for.

One of the first things you want to check out is whether or not the service you are considering is a truly VPN instead of what they call a ‘proxy’ service.  Hulu in Canada viewers would really fare better utilizing a streaming VPN service as this can handle tremendous bandwidth and make the viewing experience better, with fewer interruptions to your Hulu in Canada.

Then, make sure that the VPN is as secure as it says it is. Are they encrypting your actual IP address?  A key point to watch out for is if they offer VPN services for FREE.  Run, don’t walk, away from such offers as they will give you free VPN but they won’t be masking your IP address and that can open the door for all sorts of viruses, identity theft and other unsavory activities to take place.

Keep these things in mind, Hulu in Canada, and you will be enjoying Hulu in Canada as well as other programming in no time.

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).

2.  Connect to their US server and then go to www.hulu.com! Welcome to hulu Canada! You can now enjoy Modern FamilyGrey’s Anatomy, Glee, House, The Office, 30 Rock, etc.

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!

 

About VPNs…

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.

I have tried other services (iVPN and cryptocloud but found they were more expensive and much slower.
