The American streaming giant Hulu is home to some of the newest and most popular tv-shows and series. We will show you how to access it from outside the US.


Nothing can compare to the overall quality of American tv. “The Simpsons,” “Modern Family,” “Law & Order” and “Prison Break” are just some of the many great shows, you can enjoy on Hulu.

You usually have to be in the states to watch it, but with this little trick, you can use Hulu from the rest of the world.

Watch it the day after the premiere in the US

Hulu has bought rights from most of the big tv-networks. As a Hulu subscriber, you can stream the latest episodes of popular shows the day after the American tv-premiere. So you don’t have to wait for them to appear on your local tv-channel.

Remember: Hulu is an American streaming service, so you have to be able to understand English.

Payment issues

Some users get the error “We could not complete your request right now. Please try again later”, when they try to register their credit card with Hulu. If it happens to you, we recommend that you try with all your other credit cards.
