Hulu In The Philippines, Hulu In Asia

If you want to access Hulu from The Philippines then you need to use a little trick known as the virtual private network. This network enables you to unblock American websites such as Hulu because it gives you the United States location that you need plus it hides your actual location. Any information that would normally leave your computer while you are using the internet in encrypted rendering it unreadable to others.

Setting Up the VPN

Before you install the VPN you need to find a good service provider. You have to find one that allows you to get an American IP address. This has to be your first priority because if you don't get a US IP address then you can't unblock the sites. Other aspects that you need to look at include the bandwidth and the speed. You need enough of both of these things to stream American television online without the program being interrupted.

Even if you haven't done this type of thing before, the best providers make it simple. They normally mention on their sites that you can watch American television online with their services.

The prices for the VPN range from between five and fifteen dollars with mid range VPNs being about ten dollars a month. After you have made the payment for the services, you can start the installation process. This only takes moments to complete following the given instructions.

Using Hulu

Being able to watch Hulu in The Philippines is a wonderful thing but what makes it even better is that the site is user friendly. It is easy to navigate and easy to bring up the files that you want to stream. On the home page you will find links to other pages including the listing of the programs. From here you can go straight to choosing and watching your program.

There is also a link there for Hulu Plus located on the home page. The free service offers you the opportunity to watch the television programs on your computer and you can watch five of the latest episodes. The paid service known as Hulu Plus allows you to stream on more devices but you also gain access to many more episodes and seasons.

Possible VPN Issues

There is a potential issue that you might come across if you have a slow internet connection or if you are using OpenVPN to stream Hulu in The Philippines. There is a simple remedy for this. All you have to do is disconnect the VPN while you are streaming. Though this is recommended by some sites, I have experienced that this will work for Netflix, but not for Hulu. Because internet censorship isn't an issue in The Philippines, I think that switching to PPTP VPN is a good option. Though security features may not be as good as those with OpenVPN, users looking to stream Hulu overseas probably aren't concerned with this. Our main concern is fast streaming speed, and PPTP has a reputation of being faster than OpenVPN.
