How To: Watch Hulu in Canada. A New Method.

In August I posted a method I found for watching Hulu in Canada (or anywhere outside of the US for that matter). Unfortunately, that method was a little complicated and Hulu fixed it a few days after Lifehacker posted about it. Last Night I found a new hole and this one’s a fair bit simpler. Here’s a handy instructional video.

  3. I live in Mexico and with TelMex I get a maximum download speed of 5mbs.

    I LOVE MY ROKU!!!!!

    I use it with GetUSAWebsites.TV  (Access code 773)  They’re different in that they only jump in when the geo check is done, but the rest of the time it’s a direct connection NOT going through a proxy. The result is that I ALWAYS get a HD signal awesome video on Netflix, and Hulu.  I hate other services where too many users bog down the server, and the quality goes up and down. (Mostly down and skipping!) Grrrrr….

    I think GetUSAWebsites approach is superior, and am VERY happy.

    My local friend has only a 1.7mbs download speed, and they are using it with their Roku and they love it too. 

    GetUSAWebsites has 2 plans. Basic is $4.99 and Deluxe is $7.99 a month.  I seriously couldn’t live without it!

  4. Hey, thanks for the prior article and this followup. Will a VPN service work? My aunt is recommending HideMyNet’s VPN but I want to get an expert’s opinion. Thanks!

    1. A VPN service will work, in theory. My problem with VPN services has been that they are typically very slow. 

      I’ve not heard of HideMyNet, you might as well give it a shot.

  5. I watch Hulu outside the US on my Mac mostly together with Pandora on iPad 😀 with Hide My IP which is a real deal starring from $2.95/month. It works like a charm so definitely I would recommend it.
