Watch Hulu Outside The USA
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There's a lot of false info going around out there about how to watch Hulu outside the USA. So it's time to get our facts straight. If you aren't in the USA for whatever reasons, there are real solutions to get you access to Hulu, but they might not be what you think.

First of all, there is not "hack" to watch Hulu outside the USA. There's quite a few "hacker" forums around with enticing posts about how to get access to Hulu by changing your IP address. Most of these involve twenty steps of computer jargon that most people don't really understand. And if you look closely, most are dated back in 2009, and have about fifteen people at the bottom posting comments asking for clarification (with no responses) or complaining that it doesn't work.

Hotspot shield and other proxies don't work. Changing your IP address seems to be the only way to watch Hulu outside The USA, and even though anonymous proxies provide this service, most proxies are now blocked. Again, there's a lot of outdated information out there about "free" proxies or other services. Because of the huge amount of traffic these sites have received, most of them have IP's that have been blocked by Hulu.

Still other's claim that Hulu in on the road to international broadcasting, and in a few months everyone will be able to watch Hulu outside The USA. There are rumor sites that say certain Hulu URL's have been bought and that Hulu met with some person and now they're planning on bringing Hulu to the outside world. Canada, Ireland, The UK, and Australia are all part of these rumors. Again, most of these seem to just have been blowing smoke.

The only real, existing way to get an American IP address and watch Hulu outside The USA is with a VPN. VPN's encrypt your data and send it to a server in The USA before it reaches Hulu's site. That means Hulu only sees the data transmitted from the VPN server, not your own. This is legal - after all these services are used by millions of people who are not interested in Hulu at all. They use them for work or personal security and there's nothing wrong with us joining the ride. There are many different companies available, each with unique style of VPN. However, at the end of the day the most important thing when trying to watch Hulu outside the USA is the American IP address through the VPN server in America. Most VPN services will be very obvious about the location of there servers, so it shouldn't be hard to figure out.
