When it comes to Netflix if you make it look like you are in the right country where a specific piece of content is available, that in theory is it.
It’s not quite as simple as that when it comes to Hulu, although some articles will make it seem that it is.

The steps to unblocking Hulu in Canada?

Once you look like you are in the US, you will be able to see the proper Hulu website and that’s the first step to unblocking Hulu in Canada.
So what’s needed to make it look like you are in the US?
A VPN service.

The steps to create a Hulu account?
You need an American payment card.
Hulu makes a card location check when you try to pay, and if it’s not issued in the US, it’s not going to work.
Solutions? You could try to get a pre-paid card but the easiest method is to register via your mobile device directly in the app.
Why? As on mobile devices it’s both Google and Apple that take care of mobile payments. And they don’t enforce the same blocks that you will find on the Hulu website.
…But to create a Hulu account from the app, you will first need to acquire the app as the Hulu app is not in the Canadian app store.
And that requires changing the location of your app store.
On Apple devices, this step is relatively simple.
Want to stream Hulu in Canada on a TV? It’s possible. But it will also require a few steps.

The quickest solution? To simply connect a laptop to a TV via an HDMI cable.
But to get the best experience, you are probably going to want to get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.
If you just bought a Fire TV Stick create an account that’s in the US.
...Already have a Fire TV Stick? Here’s how to change your region to download the HBO app:
