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.

  1. Are you sure this works? I can get the ads too but the real shows never play. Did you actually get something after the ads?

  2. nah .. this doesn’t work. read the discussion. Looks like it turned into an add ip address such and such, tweak this. Tried all nonetheless, but it’s not working.

  3. hi there, just stumbled onto your site. keep up the great work!
    i tried this a moment ago (with LittleSnitch + ModifyHeaders, but I can’t get it to play anything after the short promo (e.g. NBC logo for The Office).

    as far as you know, does this still work?

  4. Hi Ryan, Thanks for this tip. I use Win7 and have no problems watching shows using your suggestion. Read the comments from air and just tried again to double check before posting; all is fine for watching that site.

  5. I don’t have littlesnitch, just windows firewall and can’t figure out which options to select..

  6.  you can do all this nonsense or you can just download Jumpto and put your Internet location onto the US.

  7. how sad on putting up such a nice video on how to view Hulu and it has to be in a 360 format. This is not very useful, at least 640 or better yet 720

    Can someone redo the video in 720p please.  

  8. This would now be the time to use reverse phone lookup Canada as the number is more than likely a North American one. There are many sites which offer free lookups and will provide you with the name associated with the phone number. Sometimes the address is available as well. These phones numbers will be the numbers which are listed in Canada’s White Pages phone book and are accessible by anyone.

  9. Hi Ryan,

    I couldn’t find your contact information but I launched a new service that will allow people to watch Hulu outside of USA. It has all the benefits of VPN and minus the drawbacks of VPN as well. It’s called UnoTelly (http://www.unotelly.com). I will be greatly appreciated if you can try it out!

  10. Hey, I just hopped over to your site via StumbleUpon. Not somthing I would normally read, but I liked your thoughts none the less. Thanks for making something worth reading.

  11. I thought it is going to be some boring old post, but it really compensat for ours time. I will posted a link to the article on our blog.

  15. 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!

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
