Are you driven by the idea of online TV and would love to watch Hulu LIVE TV in Europe? The great news? It’s possible. The not so great news? That Hulu does not work in Europe or even in Canada for that matter, and is one of the most complicated services to unblock so spoiler alert, you need to have some patience.
Hulu Live TV comes with 60 channels. For some, that’s plenty, for some not enough. The truth? Quality matters than quality. The problem with Hulu Live TV is that if you want quality, you got to pay a lot more than the standard $44 because that doesn’t include HBO nor the sports content that you might or might not see.
That’s why, for most, it does not make sense to watch Hulu Live TV in Europe.
Get DAZN if you want to watch sports content. It’s not available everywhere in Europe, but we have a guide about how to make DAZN work in the UK, that works everywhere. DAZN offers some of the best leagues in the world, at an incredible price.
Want to watch TV series? The options are vast. Netflix is the most known player and offers the likes of Stranger Things, 13 Reasons Why, Money Heist and Power just to name a few. Amazon Prime? Perhaps it doesn’t offer the greatest range of content but is an incredible package with a mix of music, books, and free shipping when buying on Amazon.
HBO NOW is also a great option for watching the likes of Chernobyl or Game of Thrones. And let’s not forget that Hulu itself has a pretty affordable package without live TV.
Not convinced and would just like to have one subscription rather than a bunch? Great. We’ll explain how to watch Hulu Live TV in Europe, below.
Hulu makes your life complicated. If you want to watch Hulu Live TV in Europe, you will need an American card to get started.
You can find a virtual prepaid card with a few searches on Google.
Once you have the right card, registration for Hulu is just like any other registration. Just act as if you lived in the US.
This is the most important part of this tutorial.
If you want to watch Hulu Live TV in Europe, Hulu needs to think that you are in the US.
How do you make it think that you are?
By using PrivateVPN or any other VPN that supports Hulu.
VPN services? They let you change your location to be somewhere else, without you moving.
In this instance, a VPN will allow you to watch Hulu Live TV in Europe.
But only if you use the right server with the right service.
It’s not enough to connect to an American server.
It needs to be optimized correctly in order to support Hulu, as Hulu makes efforts to prevent VPN services from working with it, as well, it has to due to not having rights to show the content it shows, outside of the US.
PrivateVPN? It has working Hulu servers, and since Hulu Live TV has a 7-day trial, PrivateVPN, also offers a fully free 7-day trial so that you can try it out for yourself, without having to commit for anything. Although PrivateVPN is also able to unblock the likes of American Netflix, Hotstar, and many more which you can read about on our blog, or by checking out our app.
