One thing worse than the Irish weather is the Irish entertainment options. And that’s why you are here searching for how to use Hulu in Ireland.
Irish Netflix is limited. BBC iPlayer doesn’t work. Neither does DAZN, HBO NOW, or Hulu which we are writing about today. And that’s just to name a few. Bad weather + lack of entertainment is not a great combination for many.
The overall process isn’t complex to the point that it can’t be done, but it’s not a solution that you would most likely come up with without searching for, either.
If you want to use Hulu in Ireland, it won’t be that hard to make it work, but it will require patience, especially with the first step.
You need an American card with no exceptions.
There’s no other way to register.
Sure, you can use gift cards, but that’s only after you register.
Here are some of our recommendations:
Steps 2 and 3 don’t always work. Hulu takes steps to prevent people outside of the US from using it because it has to not to break agreements and copyrights. Our advice for these is to find a well-known card company and to have funds on the card you are planning to use. Lack of funds is often the biggest reason as to why most people can’t register. Hulu needs to be able to verify that you aren’t signing up for another trial or such.
Apart from getting an American card to register for an account to use Hulu in Ireland, the registration process is pretty much straight forward. Like on any other site.
If you want to use Hulu in Ireland, Hulu needs to think that you are in the US. And not just when you enter the site or the app, but all the time. And that’s why this is the most important step if you want to use Hulu in Ireland, or anywhere else for that matter.
And for that, you need a VPN.
VPN services allow you to change your location to be in a different country without you needing to move.
The key is to use a service that works with Hulu. And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in. Meanwhile, most VPN services focus on quantity because apparently “more is better,” PrivateVPN supports the services that people want to use rather than servers that are of no value as far as entertainment.
Once connected to a Hulu supported American server, you will be able to use Hulu in Ireland.
Well, depending on what device you own.
Forget about Apple TV. Forget about Chromecast. These platforms don’t support VPN services and thus won’t support Hulu.
If you want to access Hulu on a TV, you either need Android TV or a Fire TV Stick by Amazon.
And if you rock an Android device or an Apple device, you might be able to rock Hulu in your mobile browser provided you enable desktop mode, but in most cases, if you want to use Hulu in Ireland, you will need to download the Hulu app. And for that, you need to change the location of your current app store.
Of course, if you are on a desktop device, you won’t need any apps.
On Apple devices, go to your Settings and log out of your iCloud account, followed by creating a new account.
That new account needs to be based in the US as otherwise, Hulu won’t show up for download.
If you were to just change your location on your current account, you would lose everything you currently own on your current account. Probably not a great idea.
Google made a guide about changing the location of your app store on Android devices.
Follow that, and change your location to be in the US.
That will let you download Hulu in Ireland.
Sometimes you will need to also update your payment method too when downloading it even though Hulu is free.
Apart from getting an American card for registration, this process is relatively straight-forward.
But if you have any issues, make sure to reach out to our customer service. Our customers love and value us for it!
