Do you want to know how to set up Hulu in Canada in 2018? Rightly so. Netflix might be the best the best choice for entertainment overall as it’s available in far more countries than any other movie & TV show streaming platform but Netflix ain’t Hulu. Unless you are watching one of Netflix’s original shows, you will more than likely not be able to watch a new episode of a show for a long time. Netflix isn’t as great at Hulu when it comes to being up to date, but it is far greater when it comes to showing things across the planet as Hulu is not available outside of the US at all.
Well, you are reading about how to set up Hulu in Canada in 2018, so Hulu is about to be available to you too!
Setting up the likes of American Netflix in Canada is relatively easy. Hulu is a completely different story though. See, if you want to access a streaming service, most of the time, you simply have to change your location. That can be done without actually going to a country, and more on that on that later, but when it comes to Hulu, that’s not enough. And that’s what makes it enormously hard.
To use Hulu, you need an American card. Anything else will not be accepted. And that makes it incredibly hard to use Hulu in Canada or anywhere.
There are a few ways to go about it though. The first one method involves having American friends. If you know somebody that lives in the US, ask if you can use their card. Or rather ask them to set it up Hulu for you using their card and then to remove the card. You only need an American card to register. You can pay via gift cards later.
The second option? To get a prepaid card from the US. Whether you go there on a trip or whether you buy one online. Research is recommended though as Hulu have the power to block a card. Just be aware of the fact that not every single prepaid card will work. Getting a physical card probably increases the likelihood of a card working with Hulu compared to a virtual card but a virtual card might make the process faster as you won’t have to wait that long.
Getting a card is the hardest process when it comes to setting up Hulu, but that’s only important for creating an account. Your account also needs to work though.
Making Hulu think that you are in America is the most important thing when it comes to using Hulu in Canada as if Hulu doesn’t think that you are in the US, it won’t let you in. This is why our service is crucial. Unless you want to go to the US every time you use Hulu, you need to be in the US virtually. You do that by using a VPN.
Our service is called PrivateVPN, and our American servers will allow you to use Hulu but we also have many others throughout the world that will allow you to watch the likes of BBC, ITV, the upcoming World Cup, and much more.
But make sure to check-in with our customer support to find out if whatever you want to use works with our service.
Right now, the working Hulu servers are called New York 1 and Buffalo. But you will see what services are supported as you scroll through services anyway.
You should probably not register on Hulu until you connect to a VPN server though.
Registration is quite simple, but there’s one thing that you should know. You need to provide a valid American zip code during registration. For that, search for some sort of a zip code generator on Google and use what’s generated for you.
If you want to set up Hulu in Canada to watch it on your smartphone, you also need to change the billing address of your Play Store.
Do all that while connected to a VPN. And if this doesn’t work. Repeat clearing data and force stop the app again, and of course, wait a few minutes.
On Apple devices, if you change your address, you will lose your apps. Instead, you need to make a new account. Of course, while connected to a VPN.
You wanted to know how to set up Hulu in Canada that's how you do it. It's not that hard, provided that you get access to an American card. If you don’t, it’s practically impossible. It used to be a few years ago. But welcome to 2018. Once you get pass that problem though, it’s easy. All you need to be connected to is PrivateVPN, oh and of course, you need to pay your Hulu bills.
