Hulu, just like many American services, are not available in Canada. There is, however, a way to watch Hulu Live TV in Canada, and there are two steps to it.
In this guide, we’ll go over how to solve these issues so that you can watch Hulu Live TV in Canada in the most effective and quick way possible.
Just like with other streaming services, it goes down to rights to the content.
Hulu has the rights to show its content in the US, but it gets a lot more complicated once you leave the US.
Some of the content, Hulu, doesn’t own at all...
...And some of it, it licenses to other companies in other countries, as a result preventing itself from showing that content in those countries.
...Resulting in no Hulu or Hulu Live TV in Canada.
At least until you apply the steps shared in this guide⬇️.
Whether you are just 5 mins or 5 hours away from the US, the second you are not in the US, Hulu will know it, and won’t work.
That’s why you will need to get into the US, virtually.
Something that’s done as a norm by people all over the world.
How exactly do you do it? By using a VPN.
VPN = Virtual Private Network
With just a few clicks, when using a VPN, you can change your location, virtually, making it possible to watch Hulu Live TV in Canada.
That any VPN won’t do.
That’s because when it comes to entertainment services, streaming platforms also need to make efforts against VPN’s, as if they don’t, well, they can get in trouble.
And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in as a service with a focus on unblocking entertainment, meaning fewer servers, but servers that unblock the likes of Hulu Live TV in Canada.
Of course, when it comes to streaming services, it’s not enough to just have the right VPN server. It needs to be of quality so that live streaming is smooth. That’s why at PrivateVPN, we now install our servers on our own hardware, giving us full control over the speeds, meaning we don’t need to be dependant on hosting companies.
...But you can test that out yourself when you sign up for PrivateVPN’s 7-day trial with no need for a card.
After you have signed up, simply download the app, and connect to a Hulu server, and you are 50% done.
To create a Hulu Live TV in Canada, you will need to bypass Hulu’s card block.
In the past, we’ve talked over different methods of doing that.
...We mentioned how you could sign up for a Hulu account using Revolut, but since then, we’ve actually found a better way of doing it.
It’s to sign up for Hulu via the Hulu app on your phone or tablet.
While Hulu has its own platforms for payment, so does Google and Apple, and they don’t have such blocks.
...Provided you first change the region of your app store to be in the US, and then download the Hulu app, which is not available in the Canadian store.
IMPORTANT: On Apple devices, you need to create a new account. If you change the region of your current account, you will lose everything. Of course, if you wish, you can sign back into your older account after you create an account, and everything will still be there.
The options for watching Hulu live TV on a TV are very limited.
...As most smart TVs and OS platforms don’t support VPN services.
Either connect your laptop to a TV via an HDMI cable or get an Amazon Fire TV Stick as it supports VPN services.
Just ordered a Fire TV Stick? Sign up for the US region.
Already have one? Change your region to be in the US.
Here’s how to do it⬇️:
The great thing about this guide? That the steps work for pretty much all American streaming services that are not currently in Canada.
But you can find that out when you sign up for PrivateVPN’s 7-day trial with no need for a card.
