Hulu is getting more and more popular and with their new Hulu Plus offering it looks like they are here to stay. Hit shows like Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, Bones, Saturday Night Live and Family Guy to name a few can be streamed directly form the site – if you live in the US that is.
Just as many other websites the Hulu offerings are limited to streaming within the US only. In order to unblock Hulu we need to use a Virtual Private Network – also known as VPN. What this does is connect you to a server that act as a middleman between you and Hulu. If this server is located within the Us, then Hulu will think you are too and then allow you to stream the content – thats how easy it is to unblock Hulu.
A VPN connection is not free, but it is a small and very valuable investment that you can use for more than just unblock Hulu. To start out I did a lot of research and after reading all the reviews one VPN provider came out on top. The cheapest and most reliable VPN provider on the market is by far Hide My Ass. Their 6 or 12 months package is perfect for most needs.
Once you have ordered the connection you will receive an email with instructions on how to connect your PC or Mac to the VPN network.
