Watch Hulu In Japan

It simply not right that in these times of digital living and high tech lifestyles that Lost fans can't watch Hulu in Japan and see the whole drama through to the end. This show is became a phenomenon, yet Lost addicts worldwide can't watch the full series, unless they pay the big bucks to buy the DVDs. When you go to the Hulu website, you will see a message telling you that you have to live within the US borders. We have 24/7 live news reports sent world wide from Japan, and we are a technology powerhouse, but you can't stream all of the American shows you might want to watch.

Somehow over time, people got the idea that watching American based television shows in foreign countries is an every day thing. It could be all of those Baywatch jokes, and movies with kids talking like John Wayne. So with the largest collection of TV shows from America found on Hulu, people would like to simply watch Hulu in Japan. But alas, with American networks as the joint Hulu owners,(NBC, Fox and ABC) it is set up from the get go to only allow American viewing and downloading. This is not to say Hulu in not looking into the situation, and the hope is now that Comcast in in the mix as major shareholder of NBC there might be some new negotiations in the future.

Yes, it is true that Fox International, as one example, has a solid presence in Japan with crime, life, movies and National Geographic pay stations, so there are American TV shows on our stations to see. The problem is that what the Fox package has is not always complete series. Lost fans would definitely be left hanging if that happened to them. Selling these shows in Japan brings in huge profits to Fox, and so they of course would frown upon people going online to watch Hulu in Japan for free. They have also built in filters to stop any backdoor tricks to bypass their set up.

People in Japan like to watch the John Stewart and the Daily Show and other American shows that aren't part of Fox International. Japanese Hulu fans as well as many living outside the USA are now starting to use VPNs. With a VPN, you are assigned a new IP addrss (in America) and are able to stream Hulu without a problem. The Hulu VPN not only allows you to watch Hulu anywhere in the world, but also protects your private data in public wifi zones by making your actual IP address invisible. Two-for-one! You get added internet security and you get an American IP address. Strangers can't find you and you can watch Hulu in Japan to see all of the Lost episodes you want, and as many times as you want to see them.
