How to Stream Hulu in Ireland in 2022 in 2-steps

Want to stream Hulu in Ireland in 2022? Without applying the right steps, good luck. Hulu is not available in Ireland in 2022. Just as in many other countries such as Canada or Sweden. Regardless of what other articles wrote. That’s why in this guide we’ll show you all the 2-steps needed to stream Hulu in Ireland in 2022.

2-Steps to Stream Hulu in Ireland in 2022

  1. Hulu needs to think you are in the US.
  2. You need to bypass Hulu’s payment block to create a Hulu account.

And that’s it.

Although, of course, not as simple in practice.

And that’s where the overwalk of the steps comes in.

Making Hulu Think You Are in the US

Right now, if you try to go to Hulu, it might look it works, but if you try to sign up for an account or to actually watch something, you will find out it doesn’t.

That’s because Hulu checks for your location.

If it’s not in the US, it will show you a notification that you are not in a supported region.

That’s why you need to make Hulu think you are in the US.

And that’s where VPN services come in.

VPN services allow you to change your location without moving.

You can look like you are in the US without being in the US.

And that’s the key step to streaming Hulu in Ireland.

Is it as simple as that?

No. The reality is that most VPN services do not work with services like Hulu.

That’s because services like Hulu need to make efforts against VPN services.

And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in as a service with a focus on quality rather than quantity, meaning it supports services like Hulu as well as many other services that do not work in Ireland.

…But don’t take it from us. This is some of the things that people say about us on Trustpilot:

How do you get started with PrivateVPN?

  1. Sign up for a PrivateVPN account.
  2. Download the app.
  3. Connect to a US server.

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, due to the fact that Netflix is available worldwide.

…But Hulu isn’t available worldwide, and thus it has extra blocks that Netflix simply has no needs for.

And thus it’s not quite as simple as that when it comes to Hulu, although some articles will make it seem that it is.

In fact, it’s quite difficult. 

…Which brings us onto to the next step.

Creating a Hulu Account to Stream Hulu in Ireland in 2022

You need an American payment card.

It’s as simple and as hard as that.

That’s because Hulu checks your card location when you try to pay. If it’s not American issued, it most likely won’t work.

Luckily, there is a solution.

It’s to sign up for Hulu directly from the Hulu app.

Why? As while Hulu controls payments on their website, on mobile devices it’s both Apple and Google that do it instead. And they don’t impose such blocks.

You will however need to change the location of your app store to make it work!

The good news is that in the future you are very likely also going to be able to do this on computer devices as Windows 11 releases access to Android apps, but we’ll cover that in the future when that feature is out.

…As to how to change your app store location, read below.

Changing Your App Store Location on Apple Devices to Stream Hulu

  1. Log out of your iCloud account.
  2. Create an account with the location set to the US.
  3. Download Hulu.
  4. While connected to a US VPN server, open Hulu and create a Hulu account.
  5. If you wish, sign back into your older account, and Hulu will still be there.

How to Change Your App Store Region on Android Devices:

  1. Connect to a US server with PrivateVPN.
  2. Open the Google Play Store.
  3. Click on your profile and go to Settings.
  4. Go to Account and Device Preferences.
  5. You will see an option to switch your region to be in the US. You might need to update card details, but also to restart the app and re-apply the steps.
  6. Do it.
  7. Download Hulu and create an account directly from the app.
