How to Watch Hulu Live TV in Mexico

Want to watch Hulu Live TV in Mexico? You can. But you will need to trick Hulu into thinking you are in the US. And to bypass Hulu’s geo-payment issue to sign up for a Hulu account if you don’t already have one.

...And yes, this will also apply to standard Hulu...If you aren’t looking for Hulu Live TV.

...But first...

Why is Hulu Live TV Not in Mexico

Hulu Live TV? It’s not available in Mexico for a simple reason.

Hulu Live TV consists of 3rd party channels. These channels show content that they have rights to show in the US, but not necessarily outside of the US.

If Hulu can’t show them in Mexico, it has to make an effort to prevent people from Mexico from watching.

...The result? Hulu Live is not a thing in Mexico.

And the same applies to the standard Hulu.

Is that likely ever to change? 

...Most likely not because the US is a huge market. With that said...Disney now owns Hulu, so you never know.

Steps for Watching Hulu Live TV in Mexico

  1. Make Hulu think that you are in the US.
  2. Create a Hulu account.

The steps?⬇️

Step 1: Make Hulu Think You Are in the US

To make Hulu think you are in the US when in Mexico, you are going to have to be in the US, virtually.

That’s what VPN services are for.

People outside of the US use them all over the world to make it look like they are in the US.

Simply connect to an American server, and that’s it.

...At least in theory.

That’s because not every VPN service will unblock Hulu in Mexico. In fact, most won’t.


As Hulu makes efforts to prevent it.

And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in as a service with a focus on entertainment, meaning streaming services work, but more importantly, in this case, also as a service that focuses on getting its own hardware and servers, allowing for an enjoyable streaming experience. (Provided your internet is of sufficient quality.)

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

And that’s it as far as making Hulu think you are in the US.

...If you have a Hulu account already, that’s it for this guide. But if you don’t, then here’s how to create a Hulu Live account.⬇️

Step 2: Create a Hulu Live TV Account

This is the part that most guides don’t mention.

...A part that is the hardest to get working if you don’t currently have a US-issued card.

Why? As Hulu also has a geo-payment block.

If your card isn’t American, you won’t be able to sign up.

The solution? There are a few, but by far the most straightforward one consists of signing up via the Hulu app on your phone.

...As Apple and Google handle payments on their own platform, and they don’t place the blocks that Hulu places.

The catch? You will need to change the region of your app store to download the Hulu app.

How to Change Your App Store Region on Apple Devices

  1. Sign out of your iCloud account.
  2. Create a new account with your location set to the US.
  3. Download the Hulu app.
  4. Register for a Hulu Live TV account from the app, while, of course, connected to a US VPN server.

How to Change Your App Store Region on Android Devices

  1. Connect to a US server with your VPN.
  2. Open up your Google Play Store, press on the 3 bars on the top-left of the screen, and click on Account.
  3. You will see an option to change your region to be in the US. Do it. (You will need to update payment information.)
  4. Go back to Account and confirm the change to the US.
  5. Restart your Play Store.
  6. Download and sign up for Hulu Live TV from your device.

Can You Watch Hulu Live TV in Mexico?

The first two steps will allow you to watch Hulu Live TV in Mexico, but they won’t allow you to watch it on a TV.

That’s because most smart TVs and platforms like Apple TV, Chromecast, and Roku don’t support VPN services.

Your options?

  1. Connect your laptop to a TV via an HDMI cable.
  2. Get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.

Just got a Fire TV Stick? Make sure to sign up for a region in the US.

...But if you already have one and it’s not changed to the US, change your region to be in the US. 

Here’s how to do it⬇️:

  • Go to your current Amazon account in the web browser.
  • Press on Accounts & Lists, and then press on Manage Your Account and Content.
  • You will see an option to change your region. Change your region to be in the US.
  • Open up your Amazon Fire TV device. Press on Settings and My Account.
  • Deregister and sign back into your Amazon account.
  • Download the Hulu app.

That’s How to Watch Hulu Live TV in Mexico

To sum up how to watch Hulu Live TV in Mexico:

  1. Make Hulu think you are in the US.
  2. Create an account via your phone.
  3. Get an Amazon Fire TV if you want to watch on a TV.

...And by the way, tips shared in this guide work with almost all streaming services out there.
