Want to watch Hulu in Nigeria? Just like many other services, it’s not currently available. At least not until you apply a few steps to change that. This guide will help with that, meaning you will be able to unblock Hulu in Nigeria, but it will also help you unblock many other services like Disney Plus or DAZN, as the fundamental steps are the same.
Ultimately because Hulu doesn’t have the right to show content outside of the US.
That’s why it’s not available anywhere outside of the US whether that’s the UK, Canada, or Sweden.
Why does Hulu not have any rights to content outside of the US?
As rights to content cost. And they cost a lot.
...Especially since you have to compete with other platforms for it that want to show content in the likes of Nigeria.
And also, Hulu’s main target audience is the US. Unlike Netflix, which is a global platform targeting the entire world, Hulu only focuses on the US.
Hulu needs to make efforts to prevent people from outside of the US from watching. Otherwise, it can get in trouble for making it easy to show content it doesn’t have the rights to show outside of the US.
This guide shows you how to bypass these efforts.
To be in the US while actually being in Nigeria, you are going to need to use a VPN.
VPN services allow you to be somewhere virtually.
...In this case, you can be in the US, while actually being in Nigeria.
Is it as simple as that?
Most VPN services are not designed with entertainment in mind and thus are not able to unblock most entertainment platforms, even if they have thousands of servers.
So it’s not as simple as connecting to a US server.
...And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in as a service with a focus on entertainment, meaning that it offers fewer servers than of some other VPN companies, but instead, offers servers that are able to unblock platforms like Hulu, DAZN, and Disney Plus.
If you already have a Hulu account, that’s all you need to watch Hulu in Nigeria in 2021. If you don’t, though, then keep reading because creating an account is not as simple as you might have thought.
If you want to create a Hulu account in Nigeria or anywhere for that matter, you need to have an American issued card.
The same applies to many other American platforms.
We did however, find a solution though.
It’s to sign up for a Hulu account directly from your phone.
As both Apple and Google take care of the payment on mobile apps, meaning Hulu’s weird card requirements are not a requirement when signing up directly from the app.
The only catch?
You will need to change the region of your app store.
Entertainment is best watched on a TV.
...But it’s not quite that simple to watch Hulu in Nigeria on a TV.
That’s because smart TVs mostly don’t come with a Google Play Store, and most smart TV platforms like Apple TV, Chromecast, and Roku don’t support VPN services.
With the first option, you will be able to watch Hulu right away.
The second? It will allow you to enjoy Hulu and many other platforms in the most comfortable way as the Amazon Fire TV Stick supports VPN services as it supports Android apps.
If you just ordered a Fire TV, sign up for an American account to be able to download the app.
...Already have an Amazon Fire TV Stick and don’t have an American account?
That’s also how to watch Disney Plus, CBS, and DAZN.
...If you apply these steps and use PrivateVPN.
And to sum this Hulu guide:
