Enable Smart DNS.
That’s it – head to Hulu
and have fun!
Connect to Smart DNS and unblock Hulu outside USA in seconds with our easy to use apps. Absolutely no technical knowledge required.
Enjoy smooth browsing, downloads, and streaming thanks to our high-speed servers that don’t have any bandwidth caps
You can use as many devices as you want as long as they are in the same network and have the same external IP.
Unfortunately, no. To watch content on Hulu, you need to be in the US. According to Hulu’s own FAQ sections, they mostly intend to serve the members of a single US household per subscription.
You might be able to get some access if you’re in a US military base – emphasis on “might,” though, since you’re still likely to deal with some restrictions even then.
And yes – even if you live in the US and have a Hulu account, you’ll lose all access the moment you go abroad on vacation.
There is Hulu Japan, but trying to watch content there is pretty pointless if you don’t know Japanese. Plus, you won’t get the same content Hulu US offers.
Hulu can easily prevent you from connecting to their website, watching content on their platforms, or signing up for an account or free trial by analyzing your IP address. Since it reveals your geo-location, the website knows whether or not you’re from a whitelisted or blacklisted location.
Smart DNS services do a similar thing like VPNs – they hide your geo-location. However, a Smart DNS doesn’t mask your IP address. Instead, it hides your DNS address by replacing it with the address of a dedicated DNS server.
Once that is done, the service will route all your traffic through the server. The Smart DNS provider will also use proxy servers located in specific regions to unblock content for you.
So, in this case, the provider would use a proxy server in the US.
Besides all that, a Smart DNS will also intercept your connection requests to Hulu’s website. When it does that, the service replaces any data that can leak your real geo-location with new information that points to a location in the US.
One of the reasons many people like to use Smart DNS services is the lack of encryption. Because of that, you can basically unblock geo-restricted content while enjoying your original ISP speeds.
Proxy servers are pretty similar to VPNs, but they use weaker encryption.
However, if you’re only looking to bypass geo-restrictions, proxy servers can be a good choice. You just need to connect to a US-based proxy server, and you’re all set – Hulu’s website will think you live in the country.
What’s more, if a proxy server archives Hulu pages on its local cache, it can deliver them faster to you, resulting in lower loading times.
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, and it’s an online service you can use to quickly hide your IP address.
All you need to do is download and install the VPN client, run it, and connect to a VPN server in the US. Once you do that, the server will automatically replace your real IP address with its own IP address.
So, whenever you use Hulu, the platform will think you’re actually sending connection requests from the US.
On top of that, a VPN will encrypt your traffic, so you won’t have to worry about your ISP throttling your bandwidth if you binge Hulu too much.
