Can I stream Hulu with Surfshark VPN?

I would like to use a VPN to secure my Internet connection, but Hulu gives me an error message whenever I use my current VPN provider. If I buy a Surfshark VPN subscription, will their VPN service keep me safe, encrypted and protected, and at the same time let me stream Hulu content online?

It is a common misunderstanding that VPN’s are only used to bypass geo-blocks, meaning that they are only used if you want to watch Hulu abroad. Of course, they are used to get access to streaming sites such as Hulu abroad, but they are also used by people in the United States who do not want to jeopardize their privacy in order to watch Hulu. So, the question at hand is whether or not Surfshark VPN will get the job done if you want to watch Hulu using a VPN? Or will you just get VPN error messages as you use Surfshark VPN and try to stream something on Hulu?

After signing up and downloading the Surfshark VPN client, install it on your computer or on your mobile device. This is easy as Surfshark VPN has beautiful applications available for all the important platforms out there.

Run the application and connect to any server in the United States. To perform this test, I simply connect to a United States server (not a specific server in a certain city). You can, of course, connect to a specific server, but for the testing purposes I just wanted to the server suggested to me by Surfshark. Normally, a VPN provider will connect you to the best and fastest server in their network at a location as you do this, so this is the ideal solution (if it works).

As you can see above, I got connected to a Surfshark VPN server in New York. I then visited the Hulu website. I didn’t get any error message at first, but the real test is when you actually try to stream content. I decided to start the most recent season of Veronica Mars on Hulu, and guess what – it worked at once!

When will The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 come to Hulu?

The Handmaid’s Tale might be the biggest success ever in the history of Hulu when it comes to original Hulu productions. The first two seasons were fantastic, and now we have been waiting for the third season to arrive for a long time. but, when will the third season of The Handmaid’s Tale come to Hulu?

When will The Handmaid's Tale season 3 come to Hulu?
When can I stream the third season of The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu?

The first season of The Handmaid’s Tale had its premiere on Hulu in April 2017. The second season had its premiere in April 2018. So, when will the third season come? Everyone expected the season to be released in April 2019, but it has been delayed, and thus the premiere is set for June 5th in 2019.

The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 premiere on Hulu

The premiere will be on June 5th, Wednesday, in 2019.

What will be the third season be all about?

You can watch the first official trailer for The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 right here.

I truly enjoyed the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale. It was amazing, and what was so special about it, is that I didn’t really want to watch it in the first place. But, once I got started, I wasn’t able to stop, and now I am here in the row of fans waiting for the third season to be released.

The last sentence of the trailer above is “They should never have given us uniforms if they didn’t want us to become an army.” What does this mean? Do we have a giant revolt coming up in the third season?

Watch the two first season if you haven’t seen them already!

On June 5th, everyone will speak about the new season of The Handmaid’s Tale. If you want to join the discussion, make sure to be well prepared as you have watched all episodes from the first two seasons by then. You can easily stream the first two seasons on Hulu, and if you live in Europe and have HBO Go access (or HBO Nordic), you might very well be able to stream the first two episodes there.

It is kind of strange that HBO is airing the Hulu original show in Europe, but that is the way it is, and I guess as long as Hulu gets paid for HBO airing their content, that is perfect. And, since Hulu is only available in the USA, they do for sure need partners like HBO to bring their shows to the international audience… In other words, it isn’t so hard to understand why HBO is broadcasting The Handmaid’s Tale in Europe after all.

How can I watch The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu outside the USA?

If you have a Hulu subscription and want to watch the first two seasons of The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu, but you are unable to because you are abroad, then it is time to take action right now.

Is Hulu for me?

Are you considering getting yourself a Hulu subscription and now you wonder if Hulu is for you? The answer might be yes, but it might very well also be a no! It all depends!

Is Hulu a service you should use? Is Hulu for you, or should you use something else instead?

Is Hulu for me?

So, what are the great advantages of Hulu that might make it perfect for you?

First of all, you have a lot of TV series gathered at the same place, and while no other service like Netflix and Amazon Prime get the TV series right away, you can see lots of new episodes available on Hulu already the day after it was originally aired on television. That is simply amazing, and in that way, you can follow your favorite TV series online easily on Hulu!

Another advantage is that you can see TV-series from lots of big producers such as NBC, Fox, CBS, and ABC. These networks cover TV series such as Grey’s Anatomy, The Blacklist, Elementary, Modern Family and several other great shows and award-winning shows. Some of these shows are made available in a way making it possible to watch through all previous seasons all the way up to present time with the latest episodes available, while others are only available with the latest 3–4–5 episodes which have been aired in the present season.

In addition, there are coming more and more great films on Hulu, especially now that quite some films are leaving Netflix and coming to Hulu instead. In other words, Hulu is first of all about TV series, but secondly about films as well

Which are the negatives?

If you subscribe to Hulu to watch the latest episodes of several TV series the truth is that you can do so online without a Hulu subscription as well. If you visit the ABC website you can watch the latest Grey’s Anatomy episodes online, if you visit NBC you can visit the latest The Blacklist episodes online and on the CBS website you can watch the latest Elementary episodes online.

So, you might not actually need this to be able to watch the latest episodes online, but at least all things are gathered very nicely in one place together, and you do not have to watch as many commercials as you do on the websites of the different networks!

Can I pay for Hulu with Bitcoin?

I would love to pay for Hulu with Bitcoin. Is that possible? 

Yes, it is… It is actually quite easy, and it can be done by buying a Hulu Gift Card with Bitcoin (or any other cryptocurrency). There is one place online where this can be done, and that site is at

Not only can you buy your Hulu subscription there, but you can also buy Apple Store gift-cards, Google Play Store gift cards, and lots of other cool stuff!

Once you have bought the gift-card, check your email, get the gift card code, and add it to your current Hulu account (or create a brand new one). If you want more information on how this works, check at

Forget about what’s written here… it is outdated…

It is a valid question, but if you are really into cryptocurrencies you will know that Bitcoin is struggling with one specific thing at the moment, transaction fees. If you have your money in any cryptocurrency exchange, you will most likely pay something like 0,001 BTC to transfer your money. That might not seem like a lot of money, but if you take a look at that amount in USD, that is 10 USD (at the moment). So, would you be willing to pay 10 Dollar in order to pay your monthly Hulu fee which might be the same? That is not very likely. And another problem is that you pay your Hulu subscription on a monthly basis, but there is no for Hulu to automatically withdraw money from your private Bitcoin wallet every month. For that reason, and probably lots of others, you can not pay for your Hulu subscription with Bitcoin at the moment.

Hulu with Bitcoin

What about other cryptocurrencies?

That is a valid question, as there are other cryptocurrencies both faster and cheaper than Bitcoin. The main problem might be dealing with the monthly subscription payment, and also the fact that cryptocurrencies aren’t widely accepted as a payment form yet. Some VPN providers accept it, but that is because they are very much into anonymity already. But, for a streaming service like Hulu that is not important, and thus they remain with the traditional payment methods.

We should not forget that Hulu is very strict with only allowing Americans subscribe to their service. For that reason, an American payment card or an American PayPal account is needed to subscribe. If they would accept cryptocurrencies, they would no longer be able to control that, and thus it can not be used.

There are ways to bypass the payment process and sign up for Hulu, also without an American payment card or without American PayPal. You can read more about how to sign up, pay for, and enjoy Hulu abroad in this article.

The big battle – Hulu vs YouTube TV

Late February 2017 YouTube announced their new service, YouTube TV. Can this new service make Hulu unnecessary? Which service should you choose, Hulu or YouTube TV?

At the time writing YouTube TV is still not a service you can use, but lots of information has been shared about the service. Let me therefore sum up all the information we know about YouTube TV.

What do we know about YouTube TV?

  • The service is to cost 35 USD a month.
  • You will get access to Fox, NBC, ABC and CBS.
  • You get access to unlimited DVR storage, meaning you can record as much content as you want.
  • For plus fees you can get extra content like sports and more.

So far this sounds very promising, but it is way more expensive that a Hulu subscription, so the question is whether or not it is worth the money. The fact that you get access to the live streams of these channels make it much better than Hulu, but for people like me, living in Europe, I do not have that much interest in the actual live streams provided from these channels. I use Hulu for the sake of watching my favorite TV series whenever I want to, and with YouTube TV my goal would be mostly the same.

The big difference between US and European users

I do realize that people in the United States will use YouTube TV to watch live content, first and foremost, so my perspective is more the perspective of someone in Europe. Now YouTube TV isn’t meant to be a service available for people outside the United States, but there are still ways in which you and I can watch YouTube TV outside the US.

YouTube TV is meant to be a service that will take the place of your current cable subscription. And if it is, then it will make you save a lot of money as you cancel your cable subscription, and get access to these TV channels live and on-demand for the monthly price promised by YouTube TV.

Can YouTube TV make a knockout on Hulu?

So far there are rumors about the expansion of Hulu, meaning that you can watch live streams from the same TV networks and more on Hulu as well. Since these are plans with no release date yet, I can not discuss those in this article. But, based on the current opportunities on Hulu. the following question stands in focus as I answer whether or not YouTube TV can make a knockout on Hulu.

YouTube TV vs Hulu – the DVR question

I believe the one question in focus when it comes to YouTube TV making a knockout on Hulu is the DVR question. One should not forget about the Hulu original content, meaning that if you are a fan of Chance, The Mindy Project and similar TV series, then you will need to keep your Hulu subscription no matter what. But, if you use Hulu to watch TV series and programs from the same TV networks that soon will turn available on YouTube TV, then the DVR question is the one that matters.

I have written about this in other articles as well, but to me the question is how hard YouTube TV will make it to use the DVR function. I expect it to be very easy, but how easy will it become? I am sure that you will be able to look through a TV schedule, and there you can easily press a button to record a given program. But, will they make you able by pressing a button to record all episodes of a given program, for an entire season? Can I with one or two clicks tell YouTube TV to record all new episodes of 24: Legacy and keep them available for me until I say that I am not interested anymore? That is the big question!

I do not trust myself, and thus I am sure that I would forget to use the DVR function for all my favorite TV programs every single week. That is why I would rely on a function from YouTube TV to make me able to record all new episodes of a certain program for an entire season. If this would become possible, then it would make life much harder for Hulu. Especially considering how you can record an unlimited amount of programs with YouTube TV.

Who won the battle – Hulu or YouTube TV?

I do not know yet. I will for sure become wiser after trying YouTube TV for a couple of days, but I do believe that people in the United States planning to cut their cables in order to watch all content online will have great joy in the new YouTube TV. For them it might even make the Hulu subscription unnecessary, but that is a DVR and a Hulu original content question.

For those overseas only using Hulu to watch content on demand it is probably not worth upgrading and paying almost three times more to get YouTube TV. Hulu is a service with a long experience, lots of users, and it also gives you access to the Hulu original content and lots of movies.

I can not give a definite answer to the question, but the winner of the Hulu vs YouTube TV battle is both services. Now it is up to you to decide which service will become the winner in your home. Which service will you pick? Why don’t you write a comment beneath to share your thoughts and your winner in the YouTube TV vs Hulu battle.

How many can use a Hulu subscription simultaneously?

I have one Hulu subscription which I would like to use in two places at the same time. Is that possible? How many people can use a Hulu subscription at the same time?

Thank you for asking. Surfing the Internet I tried to find a written down answer from Hulu on this matter, but unfortunately I did not manage to find one. But, based on my personal experience the answer to the question is two. I frequently use this myself as well, because I stream something on Hulu myself, but at the same time friends and family use the same Hulu subscription to stream content at another TV. So, based on my experience so far you can stream Hulu simultaneously at two locations with one single subscription.

How many can watch Hulu at the same time with one Hulu subscription?

Can I stream Game of Thrones on Hulu?

Can I stream Game of Thrones on Hulu?

For a long time, it was impossible to watch Game of Thrones on Hulu. And if you have a normal Hulu subscription, it is still impossible.

So yes, it can be done, but it cannot be done with your normal Hulu subscription.

So, to watch Game of Thrones online visit and sign up for a subscription there. You can try it free for thirty days. If you are located outside the United States then you can read more on how to watch HBO Now overseas at

Can I watch Westworld on Hulu?

Westworld is the newest and most popular HBO TV series at the moment. Would you like to watch Westworld on Hulu? Is it possible?

Westworld had its premiere on HBO in the start of October 2016. It has received lots of praise, especially for the music, for the graphics and for the entire atmosphere surrounding the show. Personally I have watched some episodes, but I am far away from falling in love and there are tons of TV series I’d rather watch than Westworld. But, maybe I am a bit primitive as I would rather watch shows like Scorpion, Macgyver, Lethal Weapon and Designated Survivor instead of Westworld. But, this article isn’t about me, but about Westworld and whether or not you can watch it on Hulu!


Can I watch Westworld on Hulu?

If you would like to watch Westworld on Hulu you will have the same problem as when you try to watch The Big Bang Theory on Hulu. Due to the popularity of the show and the fact that the creators have their very own streaming platform they will not give it into the hands of other streaming platforms. Just like CBS stream The Big Bang Theory on CBS All Access (and not on Hulu), HBO stream Westworld on HBO Now (and not on Hulu). If they would give away these popular shows to a platform like Hulu they would most likely commit suicide, as these are the TV shows that bring users to their own platforms in the first place.

The answer to your question is therefore: You can not watch Westworld on Hulu.

Can you watch Game of Thrones on Hulu then? Of course not, and the reason is exactly the same as for why you can not watch Westworld on Hulu. My suggestions is therefore that you should either skip watching Westworld, or you need to get yourself a subscription to HBO Now. The decision is yours. What will you choose?
