Watch Hulu In France
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Europe and The United States seems to have become more connected since the Internet age set in and the 24/7 news cycle with CNN international on top of things at all times. But, the sad truth is you still cannot watch Hulu in France and be able to download American television shows to watch. You can talk live on Skype to friends and family across the pond, but you can't access free TV online. Series like Heroes and Lost really caught on overseas and Conan, Colbert and John Stewart are also hot items, but if you try to watch Hulu in France, you get a message telling you that the service is only available within the US borders.

French television is pretty sophisticated and there is a definite American presence on Satellite channels where current American shows can be found. So it is not American TV that is blocked. The American companies earn a sizable income from selling the rights to these shows in France and foreign countries in general. There are some problems though with this system. One is the people get little say in which channels or show are broadcast. Most are from satellites which is a paid TV thing, and sometimes there are issue with incomplete seasons or not the full series getting canceled mid season. So it would be nice if there was also a way to go online and watch Hulu in France too.

Here is the problem and it all boils down to business. NBC Universal, Fox Entertainment and ABC/Disney, is a joint venture, and they do not want to lose the income from selling their programs. That is not to say that there haven't been negotiations concerning Hulu International. There have been, and one day they do hope to go global so folks will be able to watch Hulu in France and abroad. However, for the time being, they have not really been able to come to agreement they still only allow streaming to an American IP address.

When you go to the Q&A forums you get all sorts of advice on ways to get around this, but for the most part the Hulu technicians can block things like Hotspot Shield and other anonymous proxies. Getting a Hulu vpn to give you a virtual and IP address (in the USA) seems to be one of the only thing as these are designed to ward off identity theft and keep online searches secure. When you're connected to the servers in America, the IP address of your computer in France is invisible, and sites like Hulu can only see the IP address of the servers in the USA. By "borrowing" their IP address from one of these, you could watch Hulu in France.
