Looking to watch Hulu in Mexico? Whether you are just visiting or living in Mexico, Hulu just like in many other regions, is not available outside of the US. That’s why in this guide we will go over all the 2 steps required to make Hulu in Mexico work.
To watch Hulu in Mexico you are going to firstly need to make it look like you are in the US.
That’s because Hulu has geo-blocks in place to prevent people from outside of the US from watching.
Secondly, unless you have an American issued card, you are going to need to bypass Hulu’s geo-payment block, that requires you to have a card issued in the US.
Why all these measures?
As Hulu is only able to show content in the US due to rights to content issues.
That’s because most of the content that Hulu shows is licensed allowing other companies to show them.
Right now, if you go to Hulu, it will show you that you are not in a supported region.
This step is taken for Hulu not to get in trouble for breaching contract agreements.
How do you bypass this issue? By using a VPN.
VPN services allow you to virtually be in the likes of the US, without actually being there, often with just a few clicks.
In reality, it’s not quite as simple as just a few clicks because Hulu is aware of VPN services, and thus makes efforts to prevent them from working.
...And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in as a service with a focus on entertainment and making sure that services like Hulu work.
How do you sign up for PrivateVPN?
...For those having an American issued card, that’s pretty much it. For those that don’t, well, you’ll have to continue reading.
To create a Hulu account without having an American issued card, you are going to need to bypass Hulu’s geo-payment block.
Something that isn’t quite simple if you don’t know of the exact solution.
...In the past we tried many different methods, but in the end, we found, that the fastest and easiest method is quite simple.
It’s to sign up for Hulu via your mobile device.
That’s because while Hulu has payment blocks on its website, when it comes to mobile devices, it’s Apple and Google that take care of payments. And they do not enforce such blocks.
...The catch? That you need to change the region of your app store to first download Hulu, to then sign up for Hulu in Mexico.
After you sign up, you can, of course, sign back into your Hulu account.
Technically yes, but it’s not quite as simple as with the likes of Netflix.
That’s because smart TVs & platforms like Apple TV, Chromecast, and Roku do not support VPN services.
Of course, there are solutions to that issue.
Either get an Amazon Fire TV Stick which does work with VPN services, or otherwise connect a laptop to a TV via an HDMI cable.
Already have an Amazon Fire TV Stick? You will need to change the region of your current account:
...On the other hand, if you just ordered an Amazon Fire TV Stick, simply select for your region to be the US.
...It’s also how to watch many other streaming services in Mexico whether that’s DAZN or HBO Max.
