How to Watch Hulu in Indonesia

Hulu, just like many other services, is not available in Indonesia. And that’s why you are here. You want to know how to watch Hulu in Indonesia.

In this guide, we’ll show you how to make it work, but also how to create a Hulu account, which traditionally requires an American card.

...But first...

Why Exactly is Hulu Live TV Not in Indonesia

Primary due to the rights to the content issue. Secondly, because that market doesn’t currently interest Hulu.

...See, Hulu has a very different approach than platforms like Netflix. Netflix is a global platform for everyone; meanwhile, Hulu, it’s a platform that specifically targets Americans or, more specifically, the American region.

And that’s why Hulu is not even available in Canada.

The content to rights issue?

Well, when a service doesn’t have the rights to show a certain piece of content, it needs to block it for that viewer because otherwise, it will get in trouble.

Hulu? It doesn’t own a lot of its content. And in cases it does, it sometimes sells rights to it so that other platforms can show it in other countries.

All of this then results in you not being able to watch any Hulu in Indonesia and thus having to read thighs guide.

What’s Needed to Unblock Hulu in Indonesia

Want to watch Hulu in Indonesia today?

  1. Make Hulu think you are in the US even if you are not.
  2. Create a Hulu account if you don’t already have one.

Step 1: Make Hulu Think You Are in the US

To watch Hulu in Indonesia, you will need to make Hulu think you are in the US.

How do you do that?

By using a VPN to be there virtually.

If you never heard of VPN services, they have many uses, but in this case, they allow you to switch your location on the internet, to be somewhere else.

...By being in the US virtually by using a VPN, you will, in theory, be able to watch Hulu, but it’s not as simple as that.

That’s because most VPN services do not work with streaming platforms as streaming platforms make efforts against VPN services.

...And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in as a service with a primary focus on entertainment, meaning fewer servers than that of other VPN companies, but instead, servers that are able to unblock most streaming platforms out there, such as Hulu.

Here’s how it goes:

  1. Sign up for PrivateVPN.
  2. Download the PrivateVPN.
  3. Connect to an American server.

That’s it as far as tricking Hulu into thinking you are in the US goes.
