Hulu is only available in a few countries. If it’s not in yours, you need to know about this hack.
If you’re not in the United States, you may be wondering how to watch Hulu outside of the US and if there’s a way to stream content from the service, even if it’s not available in the area you’re in.
Hulu launched in October 2007 as a streaming service for movies and TV shows from networks like ABC, NBC, FOX and FX. It released its first original TV show—A Life in a Day, a docuseries that chronicled a day in the life of celebrities like will.i.am, Russell Peters and Girl Talk—before its first international hit with The Handmaid’s Tale, a dystopian drama based on Margaret Atwood’s 1985 book, in 2017. Since then, the service has launched dozens of original TV shows, including comedies like Only Murders in the Building and PEN15; dramas like The Dropout and Little Fires Everywhere; reality shows like The Kardashians and Taste the Nation with Padma Lakshmi.
In an interview with Variety in 2018, Hulu CEO Randy Freer explained how the service’s combination of original content and network TV shows sets it apart from other streamers. “When we talk about content, we provide it in three ways. Obviously we acquire it through library content and license it; we acquire it live for our live service in the way of networks; and we make it,” he said. “So I think what we’re doing is every day, we’ll evaluate what’s the best way to allocate our resources. It’s our largest investment by far in the business, and sometimes it’s going to make more sense to make originals, sometimes it’s going to make sense to acquire more library content, and sometimes it will make sense to add networks to our live product.”
As of 2022, Hulu is available in the United States, Puerto Rico and Japan, with each country offering different content. If Hulu isn’t available where you are, you may want to know how to watch Hulu outside of the US. Well, there is a way, and it’s pretty much free. Read on for how to watch Hulu outside of the US to experience all the service has to offer if it’s not available in the area you’re in.
