Hulu is a great streaming service where you can watch some of the best TV series from the biggest networks online. This is how you can watch Hulu from abroad.
Hulu has a big advantage compared to streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon. While subscribers to those services have to wait for months and sometimes years before an episode and season is made available, Hulu subscribers can get immediate access to new episodes just after they have been aired on big networks such as NBC, CBS, Fox, ABC and more.
Hulu also has a quite good selection of films available, so Hulu is for sure a service you will like (if you do not have a subscription yet). But, what happens if you try to watch Hulu from abroad?
Watch Hulu from abroad
As we wrote this article from Europe and tried to access to website of Hulu all we got was the following error message.
The message says that the video can only be seen from within the United States. Therefore to be able to enjoy Hulu from abroad, you need to make them believe that you actually reside in the United States. Since this article is based on experience and trying ourselves, we have tried the solution described, and it is working! Just take a look at the following screenshot from an episode of Bones that we watched as we tried the solution described in this email.
Watch Hulu using a VPN
As we tried to watch Hulu from Europe we used the VPN services of HideMyAss. They have quite a lot of servers available in the United States (we used the server in Washington), and even though the server is quite far away from our actual location, we got perfect quality and could watch the episode of Six with no problems at all.
To do this for yourself you should watch the HideMyAss website, sign up for a subscription (the basic package is enough), download their client and then connect to one of their servers in the United States (Liberty Island servers recommended). Once this has been done you can visit the Hulu website again, and now you should be able to watch whatever is available to you. Be aware that you will need to restart your web-browser after connecting to a server in the United States.
Not convinced? No problem, but know that there is no risk in trying this. HideMyAss has a 30 day money back guarantee, so if you try and find out that you are not satisfied with the product, just tell them and they will return your money and you have not lost anything at all. So, go for it and watch Hulu in a few minutes from now using a VPN to give you an IP in USA.
Beneath you can see one more screenshot taken by us as we stream another TV series on Hulu.
As you probably understand, it is very easy to get access to Hulu overseas. You do not need lots of technical knowledge, all you need is a few USD and five minutes to sign up, download the VPN client and connect to a server in the United States.
Do not forget that we often write articles about Hulu here in our IP Address Guide, so place a bookmark on this page and come back frequently for more information, news and Hulu related topics.
