The problem with most guides about how to watch Hulu in the UK is that they show you how to watch Hulu in the UK from the perspective of fooling Hulu into thinking that you are in the US, but fail to show you how to deal with the other issues. Issues such as creating a Hulu account in the UK or downloading Hulu on your device, which is also vital if you want to watch Hulu in the UK.
In this ultimate Hulu guide, we are going over all of that, in the most straight forward fashion possible.
This is a relatively easy step but the most important to get right as it needs to be constantly working as you are watching Hulu.
Most guides will lead you right on this part.
If you want to watch Hulu in the UK, you do indeed need a VPN which will allow you to connect to an American server.
Never heard of VPN services? No problem. To explain briefly, VPN services allow you to stay safe on the internet by changing your IP address and encrypting what you do, but most people use them for the reasons you are here. To unblock entertainment such as Hulu in the UK or perhaps the likes of DAZN, which is a UK company ironically not available in the UK.
How is a VPN able to unblock entertainment? By changing your location, virtually. Where you can be virtually will depend on the number of servers that the VPN service that you are using has, but in this instance, what matters, even more, is what services these servers work.
You’d assume that connecting to any American server would allow you to watch Hulu in the UK. However, due to the fact that Hulu has to make efforts to prevent VPN services from working so that it doesn’t get in trouble for breaking rights agreements, most VPN servers don’t work.
PrivateVPN? It’s not the only VPN service that will allow you to watch Hulu in the UK, but by focusing on quality over quantity, PrivateVPN is a leader in unblocking entertainment content all over the world, and a reason behind why it’s able to unblock the most Netflix regions on the market, while having significantly fewer servers than that of the competition.
Just download PrivateVPN, provide your details, and connect to our Hulu servers and you are ready to go as far as fooling Hulu.
The hard part? It’s creating a Hulu account.
This is the hardest part of this ultimate guide, and a part that most guides avoid because of the complexity of this issue.
And so did we for a very long time because we couldn’t find a practical way to solve this issue in a practical and trustworthy way, until now...
See the key to create a Hulu account to watch Hulu in the UK is to have a US-issued card.
Something that’s a very big problem for people and often requires a lot of time.
In the past, to solve this issue, we did suggest thing such as:
But recently we discovered a method that makes creating a Hulu account in the UK or anywhere in Europe significantly easier, trustworthy, and quick.
Shared for the first time ever in any guide.
If you want to watch Hulu in the UK, to create a Hulu account, you can use Revolut.
Yep. The UK company that you most likely heard about or even currently use.
We don’t know if this is a method that will work forever nor exactly why it works, but we test it on both the premium cards as well as the metal cards, and the virtual cards that Revolut offers.
And that might be the best option for you if you want to watch Hulu in the UK or anywhere in Europe for that matter. Getting a prepaid card issued in the US in Europe? It’s possible, but not convenient. Revolut is convenient, and if you sign up for a premium account, you can right away get access to virtual cards.
You do need at least £1 on your account though as Hulu needs to verify your card.
At this moment, this method combined with PrivateVPN will let you watch Hulu in the UK, and this is the easiest way to do it at this moment, but if it ever for some reason stops working, let us know, and we’ll update this ultimate guide to watching Hulu to help other people trying to set up Hulu.
If you are able to turn on “desktop mode” or something similar on your web browser, you won’t even need a Hulu app. With that said, there are benefits to having one, and that’s why we’ll walk you through how to watch Hulu in the UK on any device below.
When it comes to Android devices, we highly recommend that you check out Google’s guide on switching regions. Of course, change your region to be in the US.
Alternatively, download a secondary app store that’s trustworthy, but that doesn’t provide geo-blocks on apps, and download Hulu from there.
When it comes to Apple devices, the steps slightly vary.
It’s actually very easy to change the location of your Apple App Store. However, it’s also incredibly easy to get rid of all your content if you change your region on your current account. That’s why it’s crucial to create a new account.
Of course, you can then switch between both accounts without losing anything.
If you are unlucky enough to own a device that doesn’t support VPN services at all with those being the likes of Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, and most smart TVs, then there is an alternative if you really must watch on one of these platforms and aren’t willing to get the Amazon Fire TV Stick instead.
What is it? Installing a VPN on your router. It’s not an ideal method as every connected device will automatically be in the US when you do this, but it is a method that works if you are looking to watch Hulu in the UK on devices that don’t support VPN services.
Make sure to check out some of our guides on how to install VPN’s on routers.
Most of the guides on the internet on the topic of Hulu won’t mention that you need an American card to initially create an account. We always did, but we’ve been searching for solutions as part of wanting to provide you with the very best solutions on our blog. And now we found the solution.
Don’t want to go through all this effort? The good news is that Hulu most likely will come to the UK in the future since Disney now owns it. The not so good news? That it might take around a year or two before that happens at the very earliest. Whether you want to wait or grab our 7-day trial to try out a 30-day free trial of Hulu, that’s up to you.
