Hulu, one of the top 5 video streaming websites, is not available to visitors outside of the USA and Japan. Do you want to watch the lasts episodes from Glee, The Vampire Diaries, Grey’s Anatomy, Supernatural or Gossip Girl for free? We give you a simple, cheap and useful solution to be able to watch Hulu contents from everywhere.
Are you crazily waiting for the season 4 of The vampire diaries to see what happened to Elena? Cannot you wait to see the disclosure of Gossip Girl’s identity in the season 6 of Gossip Girl? What about Rachel and Kurtt finally in New York in the fourth season of Glee? Well, you can watch all these TV shows and many more at Hulu. Hulu is a website that offers streaming video of TV shows, movies, webisodes and other new media from NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS, Nickelodeon, and many others, completely for free, although you can have a Hulu Plus service, with more features. Its great variety of shows makes it one of the best alternatives to cable. Hulu videos are currently offered only to users in Japan and the United States. So, that means that when you are out of these two countries and you got to Hulu website, you will get this screen:
But don’t be upset! You actually can have access to Hulu from any country in the world! Now, how we do this?
How does Hulu know I am not in the US or Japan, you ask? Something called an IP address. An IP address is the address of your computer that allows other computers to communicate with it. Your IP address changes all of the time, but it is always recognized by Hulu as an IP address from the country you are trying to access. So how do we get around this? You need to make the Hulu server think that you are located in the US, with a US IP address!
What you can use to hide your real IP address is a VPN, or Virtual Private Network. Typically, VPN’s have been used by companies to provide remote and secure access to their computers to their employees. What happens is this:
Your computer connects to VPN through the Internet, but once you are there, when you access to the Hulu server, your IP address is not recognized any more as foreigner one. And all this is quite simple and cheap!
There are a bunch of VPN providers out there, but the one we recommend is pureVPN. Why? Because it is a good quality one with a fair number of access points in many different countries (including the US) and especially because it allows you stream HD (High Definition quality files) due to its fairly reliable access speed. The standard account cost only $9.95 a month, and that should be enough for you to watch all your favorite TV shows and many, many movies on Hulu.
Once you have signed up with pureVPN, you can use their software to connect to a location in the United States. You can also connect to Canada, Mexico, UK, Brazil, and soon Norway, and having an IP from any of those countries will allow you to sign up for a Hulu account.
Regarding the Hulu Plus service, which gives you unlimited access to stream all the contents of Hulu (the basic service has some limitations, for instance, you only can watch the last 5 episodes of TV shows) plus you can stream in TVs, consoles, tablets, smartphones and other devices, it is only available with US credit cards. If you do not possess one, there is still a way to get Hulu Plus. If you go to this site, there are prepaid gift cards with 3 months credit. After that point, you can always buy and redeem Hulu Plus subscription code to keep the account active. The card number and all the information you need to use it will be sent to you by e-mail, so you don’t need to wait for it in the mail. Quick and easy!
Many people may be disappointed when they learn that they are not able to “officially” use netflix in New Zealand, but it is possible! In a few easy steps you too can be up and using netflix, and watching your favorite movies and tv shows instantly online, for practically free (when you compare it with how much you pay for renting movies or cable television).
I am going to call it the red screen of death that we have all gotten!
How does Netflix know I am in New Zealand you ask? Something called an IP address. An IP address is the address of your computer that allows other computers to communicate with it. Your IP address changes all of the time, but it is always a New Zealand IP address, and that’s all Netflix needs to know (more about IP addresses). So how do we get around this? We give you an IP address from a country that already has Netflix!
Getting an IP address from another country turns out to be extremely simple (and relatively cheap)! You can do this by using something called a VPN. A VPN or Virtual Private Network, acts as an intermediary between your computer and the internet. VPN‘s have typically been used in big companies so if you are working from home or traveling, you can still access the company’s computers securely. Recently, people have realized that they can use VPN‘s to get around regional access restrictions on things like movies, tv shows, and music online.
There are several different VPN providers, but one good quality provider with a fair number of access points in quite a few different countries (including the US), and also fairly reliable access speeds so you can stream HD (as opposed to standard definition, which is still fairly high quality), is pureVPN. Their $8.95/month account should be enough to let you watch your favorite movie’s and TV shows on Netflix.
Once you have signed up to use pureVPN, you can use their software to connect to a location in the United States. You can also connect to Canada, Mexico, UK, Brazil, and soon Norway, having an IP from any of those countries will allow you to sign up for a Netflix account. Once you are connected you can visit netflix to signup for a free one month trial account.
With the help of a simple trick, anyone can watch netflix from any country, even if it is not officially availiable! You can get netflix by simply signing up for a VPN service, and then using a paypal account to pay for your subscription. We have all the detailed steps here, in just a couple minutes you too could be streaming netflix!
