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

For Americans in Europe or for Europeans who have a taste for American TV, it's heartbreaking to know that you can't watch Hulu in Europe. Hundreds of free shows and even more for a few bucks a month mean that if you love TV you can have more of it. They're still pretty new, coming out on the scene in 2009, and they have plans to dominate. Already on iPhone, PC, and Playstation, they have plans to move to Android, X-box, and tons of other mobile devices. Now if only you could watch Hulu in Europe.

To solve this problem, you've got to start from the beginning. You can't watch Hulu in Europe because your IP address (the address of your computer) says that you're not in The USA. Because of all those copyright issues and laws Hulu is limited to computers and devices originating in the USA. As you know, people are clever, and there is now an easy and relatively inexpensive way to watch Hulu in Europe, and all over the world.

You may or may not have heard of a VPN (virtual private network) was originally used by businesses to keep information secure, and allow their employees on the go to access private information without being at the office. It creates a sort of tunnel that encrypts your information and opens it somewhere else. Don't worry about the technical part of it, it's not that important.

What is important, and what allows you to watch Hulu in Europe is that it can change your IP address. No matter where you are, if you sign into a 'server' somewhere else, your computer becomes located at that point - well the address of your computer. So if you're in Europe, or China, or Africa, and you sign into an American server, say, in Los Angeles or Seattle, you can watch Hulu. This is because Hulu sees your address as being in the USA.

Vpn's can be bought on the internet. There are hundreds of companies, and several different 'protocols' or types of Vpn. If you're not quite sure what all this stuff means, it's ok. Most places have live support and from the time you get to the end of this article to the time you've purchased your vpn and start watch Hulu in Europe won't be more than 15 minutes.

How much is this Hulu vpn going to cost you? Like said, it's relatively inexpensive. Ordering a month of service will cost you ten to twenty dollars, and if you sign up for a year contract you can get many services for just over five bucks a month. The thing to keep in mind is that you need to make sure you get a service that has IP addresses in the USA. Other than that, there's not much to worry about.
