How to watch Hulu abroad? [YouTube Instructions]

Hulu is an amazing streaming service, but how you can stream Hulu abroad? I have just published a little tutorial video on YouTube, so if you want to check it out, read on!

It is really something to be mad about if you have a subscription to a streaming service like Hulu, only to discover that you cannot use it abroad. It is even worse if you have bought expensive add-ons, like the HBO Now add-on, and as you sit down to stream the brand new episodes of Game of Thrones season 8, you discover that you cannot stream Hulu abroad. What can you do about it? Watch the following video-tutorial to find out.

If you watch the tutorial above and know that you want to do like I did in the video, visit the ExpressVPN website, sign up for their services and download the ExpressVPN website, just like I have done.

As you visit the website, notice that you will get three months for free if you sign up for their 12 month package. That is a very nice deal worth taking advantage of.

Besides this, you can use ExpressVPN on three different devices at the same time, and they will let you enjoy their 30-day full refund policy in case you do not like their service, their product or some other thing related to the ExpressVPN product.

Do you have any questions after watching the video tutorial?

Have you watched the Hulu from abroad video tutorial on YouTube, but still you have some unanswered questions? Write a comment in the field beneath and I will do my best to help you out.

I love answering questions and helping out, so do not hesitate at sharing whatever is on your heart.

Which is the best VPN for Hulu?

Are you wondering which is the best VPN for Hulu? Is it ExpressVPN like described in the video tutorial, or is there some other VPN service? You will most likely be able to find quite a lot of VPN services out on the market that will help you unblock Hulu. But, to help you understand how it works, we can kind of comparing the VPN services out there with visiting a restaurant.

You might find a VPN provider out there that will give you exactly the pizza you ask for, but nothing more. But, then you have ExpressVPN, like described in the video tutorial. If you use their services it is like entering an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant. Not only can you watch Hulu, but you can also enjoy lots of other services, and besides this, you can drink freely at the same time.

In other words, you will get much more than just a basic VPN subscription. You will get much more than just access to Hulu. You will be able to do so much more, and that is why I like recommending ExpressVPN as the number one VPN provider for those who want to get access to Hulu from abroad.

Which VPN provider are you using?

Which VPN provider are you using as you stream Hulu abroad? Please share your experience beneath, I would love to hear from you. If you follow my advice and use ExpressVPN, share your thoughts and let me hear how you like their VPN applications, their VPN servers, their download speeds, and their ability to unblock all sorts of websites online!

Error 3(-996) on Hulu – What is it?

Have you ever gotten the error code 3(-996) on Hulu? I have. What is it about? What is the solution?

hulu error -996
Do you get this error message on Hulu?

I am not a tech expert, but I know that I have received the error code 3(-996) on Hulu. I get the error message when I use an Android device, but why I get it I do not really understand. I have had several suspicions related to the error code, but none seem to be correct.

  • I first thought it was related to a VPN connection, but it wasn’t.
  • I then thought it was related to my SmartDNS connection, but it wasn’t.

How do I know? Because I later used another Android device, and could stream Hulu content with no problem. I then tried to stream Hulu on an iPad, and could do so with no problem. I tried to uninstall and re-install the Hulu application on my Android phone, but that did not work

What is the conclusion about error 3(-996)?

I really have no clue what is causing the error 3(-996) on my Android device. My suspicion is it is connected to some sort of error on my phone, but I do not really get what kind of error.

Have you got any clue? I would love to hear your comments!

Can I watch Hulu Live TV in Windows?

Hulu Live TV has been here for about a month in beta version, but I can not watch it in Windows. Is that a mistake? Is it possible to stream Hulu Live TV in Windows?

Hulu Live TV is a brilliant service that feels quite similar to services such as YouTube TV and DirecTV. The difference however is that lots of people actually use Hulu already, and thus a subscription tot he live TV services from Hulu will feel cheaper than the monthly fees you pay by YouTube TV, DirecTV and Fubo TV. There is however a slight problem, because Hulu Live TV is not available for all platforms yet. You can in other words not use Hulu Live TV on all platforms yet.

You can watch Hulu Live TV on the following platforms:

If you have a Chromecast, an Apple TV, an Android or an iOS device or an Xbox, then you can stream Hulu Live TV at home right away with a valid subscription.

You can NOT watch Hulu live TV on:

If you have a normal Mac or a Windows computer you will however not be able to watch live TV at the very moment. This is probably a question of only days or months before that will change, but at the time I am writing this article Hulu Live TV can not be watched on a Windows computer or a Mac computer. That is quite a pity, but hopefully this will change within shortly.

Is there a way to stream Hulu live TV from abroad? I do not have a working method up and going just yet, but I will of course write more about it as soon as I get to know more about it.

Looking for a VPN working with Hulu? Look no further!

There are lots of people out there looking for a VPN working with Hulu. Which VPN to use for this purpose? Which VPN providers to avoid? The complete guide!

Hulu was one of the first streaming services to implement advanced VPN blocking. Back in 2015 they got their own register of IP addresses (from VPN providers) which were to be blocked from their services. Since then Netflix and Amazon Prime (and several other services) have followed in their footsteps, and blocking the IP addresses provided by VPN providers is now frequently happening in the online world. There are however holes in the system, and thus you can still find VPN providers still working with Hulu. Unfortunately these streaming services work day and night to block such services, and thus a service working today, might not work tomorrow, but there are some VPN providers which has been working constantly with Hulu all the time, and this I have great hopes that they will keep on working for months and years to come as well.

Which VPN services work with Hulu?

As I mentioned earlier, most VPN services do not work with Hulu. But, there are a few brilliant exceptions, and here I will tell you about those.

Things may change in the future

If you are in the mood to stream the latest episode of 24: Legacy on Hulu, then you will be really sad if you are stopped by a Proxy error message. There might be several reasons for you getting such an error, and here I will tell you what you can do!

Get rid of the proxy-error on Hulu

Are you actually using a VPN or a proxy?

To get rid of the proxy error on Hulu, first you need to find out if you are actually using a proxy or a VPN or something similar. If the answer is yes, then the problem is that the service you are using or the proxy server you use is blocked by Hulu. If that is the problem, then you should stop using the one you are currently using, and instead start using a service that will actually help you out and fix the problem. You can find out more about working services at the front page of this site, or you can simply start using the services of PureVPN right away.Visit PureVPN website

Once you sign up for Hulu you can download their application. With the application installed you open it and choose that you want to stream Hulu. You can then connect and visit Hulu.com or re-open the Hulu application on your tablet or phone, and you can watch Hulu right away without a proxy error.

Are you not doing anything, but still getting the proxy error message?

If that is so, then there are two things that you can do. You can contact Hulu customer service to see if they can help, or you should ask your system administrator. Maybe you are using a computer or a device behind a firewall and you use a VPN or a proxy without you knowing about it. If so you could contact your system administrator to find out if that is actually happening. Maybe he/she can help you out, or maybe not…

If you want to take the matter into your own hands then follow the instructions above, use PureVPN, and you can bypass any added VPN/proxy and watch Hulu without proxy error, not matter where you might be in the world!

How to watch Hulu on Playstation from abroad?

Hulu on PlaystationDo you have a Playstation 3 or a Playstation 4 and would like to watch Hulu on it, but it is not working because you are located outside the USA?

To watch Hulu on your Playstation 3 or on your Playstation 4 from abroad this is what you need to do!

First of all you will need a PureVPN subscription and the best you can do, and by far the easiest, is if you include SmartDNS as you sign up for their services. If you do not get to enable it upon registration, then you can do so later in the live chat! Visit PureVPN website

Sign up for the PureVPN services and now follow these descriptions to watch Hulu on your Playstation from abroad!

Hulu on Playstation abroad

The easiest is as I mentioned earlier to get this working with PureVPN SmartDNS. To get this working simply do as follows:

  1. Select Settings and then Network Settings.
  2. Select Internet Connection Settings.
  3. Select ‘Yes’ when a confirmation screen is displayed stating that you will be disconnected from the Internet.
  4. Select Custom.
  5. Do not change anything, only when you come to DNS settings.
  6. Select Manual and add the following values.
    Primary:107.168.129.2, Secondary: 46.23.70.70
  7. Press right button until you get to the end and check connection.
  8. This should now be working and you will be able to watch Hulu on your Playstation!

Watch Hulu on Playstation with a special router

The other thing you can do is to setup either your PureVPN VPN connection on your router or SmartDNS and their DNS servers on your router. This is a bit more complicated, but if I had to choose I would tell you to go for the SmartDNS solution here as well, because it is much, much easier than the VPN connection.

If you use the SmartDNS solution you will need to log in to your router and change its settings to manually use the DNS servers of your choice, and then you will of course need to use the DNS servers that were described earlier in this article.

And once more, there are lots of more guides and information on how this works on the PureVPN website, so just go ahead and you will get thorough manuals and descriptions on the PureVPN website as well making sure that you will be able to watch Hulu on your Playstation, also from outside the United States.Visit PureVPN website

If you have problems finding the Hulu application on your Playstation then you will need to create a new Playstation ID registered in the United States, and once you use this user on your Playstation you will be able to download the Hulu application to your Playstation!

If you want to watch Amazon Videos on your Playstation, then you can read more about how this works in the following article.

Why cant I find the Hulu app in Google Play Store?

I want to download the Hulu application from the Google Play Store, but I am not able to find it. What is the problem?

The problem is probably that you are located outside the United States, and that is why you will be able to see the products available within the Google Play Store of the nation you are currently located in. So, if you are located in England, you will see the Google Play Store for England, and since Hulu is almost only available in the United States, you will not find this in your local Play Store. That is why the solution for you is one out of two things.

  1. Search in Google for Hulu apk Android. You will then find the Hulu application for Android and you can download it to your system. You need to tell your Android device to allow installation from insecure sources. With this downloaded you are ready to go.
  2. You can use a VPN provider like PureVPN and connect to a server in the United States. Once this is done you open Settings, Applications and open Google Play Store. Clear Cache, and now you open the Google Play Store on new and search for Hulu. You will find the application and be able to download it!

But, the problem is not over, because you will not be able to watch and enjoy Hulu on your Android device from abroad, unless you are tricking the system a bit. The best way of doing so is by using Unlocator, a brilliant SmartDNS service which you can try for free for seven days, and it works perfectly and will let you watch Hulu online easily on your Android device once setup properly! Visit Unlocator website

I can warmly recommend this and I am using this myself and works great as I want to enjoy my Hulu subscription on my Android device from abroad! If you have questions or comments, just write. If this article has helped you, please let me know!
