Thomas has a valid Hulu subscription, but he cannot watch it during his summer holiday in France. Now he looks for a way to watch Hulu overseas.
Thomas has spent his last days in Nice in France. He has been swimming in the sea, eating delicious food, and spent some hours shopping. He is incredibly tired, but suddenly it comes to his mind, that a new episode of The Handmaid’s Tale has been released on Hulu. He opens up his laptop, connects to the WiFi connection available in the hotel, and visits hulu.com.
He is ready to stream, and he presses the play button. He waits for a few seconds, but after the waiting is over he doesn’t see Offred and Commander Waterford, but this stupid message.
Thomas was really hyped up about the new episode, and now he is sad and sorry. He isn’t the kind of guy who takes a no for an answer, so he starts looking for a solution. Is there a way in which Thomas can make the Hulu website believe that he is located in the USA?
Thomas cracks the Hulu from abroad code
Thomas has heard about VPN providers and IP addresses before, and at first he thought getting an American IP address would solve all his trouble. After all, if Hulu finds out that Thomas has an IP address in the United States, then it should work, shouldn’t it? Well, it doesn’t! He reads about how lots of VPN providers are blocked by Hulu, and only a few are still working. But, which are the ones working?
Thomas has looked around here and thre, and in the end he finds an article which says that ExpressVPN is a VPN provider that has been working constantly for the last years with Hulu. Thomas decides to give it a try. He visits the ExpressVPN website, signs up and downloads the ExpressVPN application. He is very relieved to see that they have a 30-day full refund policy, as he can ask for his money back if it doesn’t work.
The entire process only took a few minutes, and now Thomas connects to a server in the USA with ExpressVPN. He decides to restart his browser after making the VPN connection, and now he visits hulu.com again. He is nervous, because he really wants it to work. But, he has heard of scams and companies trying to steal his money, so he is not entirely sure about whether or not he can trust ExpressVPN.
Thomas tries to watch Hulu again
Will it work this time? Thomas gets to the site for The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu, and he presses the play button. He waits for a few seconds (it seems like forever), and the something happens. What happened? Take a look beneath!
Thomas is happy, and he is to busy watching the episode, so he doesn’t have much time to complete this article. But, he hopes the way he solved this problem will help you solve the same problem as well, no matter where you might be in the world.
