Hulu is one of the most popular website to watch TV shows and movies online legally. You can find almost all the popular TV shows with a nice video quality. The user interface of this site is also simple to use.
Now the problem with using this site is it is restricted outside US. It means if you want to open it in India, China or Canada, it simply flashes a notification as shown in below screenshot.
The only solution of accessing Hulu in countries other than USA is using a VPN service. If you don’t know about VPN, here is a small introduction taken from Wikipedia
A virtual private network (VPN) is a computer network that uses a public telecommunication infrastructure such as the Internet to provide remote offices or individual users with secure access to their organization’s network. It aims to avoid an expensive system of owned or leased lines that can be used by only one organization.
Hotspot Shield is Windows application that lets you open country restricted websites. It creates a virtual private network (VPN) between your computer and Internet gateway. It also protects your entire web surfing session.
Download and install this application on your computer. Click on the icon to run it. A Hotspot Shield webpage will open inside your browser. After connecting you can open any restricted and non restricted webpage.
Once the program is connected, open Hulu website. You can access it now without any problem. You can also access Google Voice in India by using this method.
The program always sits on the system tray. If you want to disconnect it then right click on the program’s icon and select Disconnect/OFF.
