Hulu Connects to Facebook, But You Still Cant Watch Hulu Outside The USA

Over the weekend a new feature of Hulu was added - and then taken away. It was a great idea really - adding Hulu features to Facebook. The idea behind it was that users could use the combination of Hulu and Facebook to make watching TV more interactive. Live discussion about TV shows, recommending TV shows to friends, and making Hulu a more personalized experience altogether. But after it was discovered that users were able to access the accounts of other uses, it was quickly shut down. As a Hulu account owner living outside The US, this didn't really concern me much. I really think that Hulu should be concentrating their efforts on expanding, so that people can watch Hulu outside The USA, before they concentrate on enhancing US users experience.

There are tons of Hulu fans outside of The USA. People who watch Hulu outside The USA can be divided into two groups. Those living outside America, and those temporarily outside America. For those visiting places outside The US temporarily, it's easier to get access outside The US because they've already got a Hulu account set up. With a Hulu account, or a Hulu plus account, all you need to get a hold of is VPN. VPNs can be used to change your IP address, so no matter where you are in the world, you can acquire an American IP address and access to the Hulu site. Quick and Easy.

If you're living outside America, this can be a bit more difficult. This presents a few unique problems to the user. To watch Hulu outside The USA, you of course need a VPN. A VPN good enough to stream video is going to cost money. Do you want to pay a fee for a service which should be free? This may be worth is for some - after all a fee of less than five dollars a month (for the VPN service), will still get you access to the five newest episodes of all TV series, and tons of movies. There are many movie collections that have recently moved from Netflix to Hulu.

Because the free version of Hulu presents many limitations that Hulu Plus does not, investing in a VPN to watch Hulu outside The USA sparks interest in Hulu plus- and access to thousands of American TV shows from Hulu's library. But to pay the monthly fee for Hulu plus, you need to have a paid account. Hulu only accepts American credit cards. How do you watch Hulu plus outside the USA? There are many gift certificates available on the Internet. Amazon, Ebay, and even sites specializing in selling gift certificates have various kind of Hulu gift certificates available. Many times, you'll be able to pull the numbers right off the net and pay for your Hulu plus account in that way.

While Hulu continues to work out bugs with it's Facebook connections and applications users can continue to watch Hulu outside The USA with a VPN.
