Hulu is the number one place to watch TV shows and series online. Unfortunately you cannot access Hulu from the UK unless you use the following trick.
If you try access Hulu from the UK you will be meet with the following message: “Sorry, currently our video library can only be watched from within the United States”. The problem is that Hulu will detect your location via your computers IP-address. So what you need to do is make Hulu think you are located in the US even though you are actually in the UK.
The heading says it all and it is actually very simple to do. What you need to do in order to fake your location is get an American IP-address. By connecting to a Virtual Private Network (VPN) you will gain a middleman located in the US and Hulu will now think this is located. This might sound a bit tricky to setup but it is dead easy.
Simply use the VPN app from Hide My Ass VPN and all you have to do is select a server in the US and click connect. From then on it will appear as if you are located in the US and then you can stream away like crazy. That is really all there is to it and the app works for both Mac and PC and can be turned on and off whenever you need to hide in the US (or any other location for that matter). There are other VPNs on the market as well but none of them provide the ease of use and simple setup that you get from the HMA app.
The app will even allow you test what server in the US will give you the best speeds and as such can ensure that you get the most out of the connection. Pretty handy tool if you ask me and it is must have if you want to unblock US only services like Hulu in the UK.
