Hulu And Hulu Plus In Canada

Despite sharing a lot of things with the United States, you can't access Hulu from Canada. In the country to the North, even though Canadians are able to watch some of the shows on cable or satellite television, it goes by a schedule. It would be a lot more convenient to be able to watch American television online because this can be done on one's own time. Although the website is restricted there is still a way to use the site.

Using the VPN

The virtual private network is the answer to the dilemma of not being able to watch Hulu in Canada. This network hides your actual location and you get a US IP address instead. This means that you look like you are in the United States from the point of view of Hulu.

It is not expensive to use the VPN but the price depends on the service provider. The cost generally ranges from between $6 and $20 per month. The average is about $10 per month. You need to keep in mind that you not only need to get an American IP address but you also need to have enough bandwidth and speed along with the service. Without these two things you can't stream American television online without the frustration of having to wait through interruptions in the picture. The cheapest providers do not offer you everything that you need for smooth streaming therefore you are advised to use a slightly more expensive provider.

Averaging Out the Cost

Even though it costs money to change your IP address to a suitable one, it doesn't cost anything to use Hulu if you are going with the standard service. You can stream American media originating from FOX, NBC, ABC and many other channels without any fees. However, if you want to use Hulu Plus then there is a charge of about $8 per month.

For Hulu Plus in Canada, you are paying for more shows and added convenience. With the regular service you can stream the last five current episodes of any particular show listed whereas with the Plus version, you can choose from any during the season. Also with the Plus version, you can stream on devices on than your computer such as the tablet or smartphone.

Other Options

There are many other websites that you'll be able to unblock with a US IP. Some may be due to internet censorship in your region, and some may be to geographical restrictions from the host website. Experiment and see what you can access.
