I love streaming.
It’s one of my favorite things to do when I have some time off.
It’s much more convenient than cable, plus I get to binge-watch all of my favorite movies and TV shows.
However, what I don’t like is that some of the best content currently is on Hulu, and the streaming service is restricted to the U.S. and Japan only.
That means if I want to watch something outside of these two countries, I won’t be able to do so. Or, at least not without a VPN.
Now, what bothers me even more, is that it’s hard to find a VPN that can actually go around Hulu’s geo-block and unlock the content for the rest of the world.
Hulu, following the steps of other influential streaming services, set up strong IP detection tools that can recognize most VPNs, and they will block your access as soon as you try to load their content.
I’ve been using NordVPN for some time now, as one of the most capable VPNs on the market, and I am very satisfied with its overall performance.
But I know that you are wondering if this provider is one of the few that can still circumvent Hulu’s block.
The answer is yes, although you need to know a few other things as well, and I am about to explain them in this article.
How to Unblock Hulu with NordVPN?
Many VPN providers gave up the fight against streaming services and their geo-blocks, but NordVPN is still going strong.
With over 5,000 servers and premium server speeds, NordVPN is my go-to solution for streaming. However, when it comes to Hulu, it’s essential to understand that not all of the servers will be working, but more on that later.
What you need to know now is that NordVPN employs advanced technology against geo-blocks and is currently one of the best alternatives for reaching the U.S. Hulu library, and Hulu Japan.
To unblock Hulu you need to follow these four very easy steps:
- Sign up for NordVPN;
- Download the suitable VPN client for the device you will be using;
- Connect to a U.S. server (or a server in Japan);
- Open Hulu and start streaming.
Why I Chose NordVPN?
However, the reason I chose NordVPN, in particular, is because it is feature-rich, and it’s very competent and efficient. It bypasses strong blocks and is an excellent tool in the fight against online censorship.
What I like the most is that NordVPN is inexpensive, yet it provides maximum online security and privacy. The provider doesn’t hold back on features, and it has some of the best streaming speeds on the market.
The speed plays a tremendous role in your overall streaming experience, and I know that it can be frustrating when your video starts buffering.
Still, NordVPN has impressive speeds, even on more distant servers.
You might notice a slight downfall, but it won’t be enough to keep you from enjoying Hulu.
Keep in mind that to have decent HD streaming you need around 5Mbps, while for Ultra HD or 4K streaming, you need at least 25Mbps. It’s safe to say that NordVPN has you covered.
Do All Servers Work With Hulu?
If you still can’t bypass Hulu’s geo-restriction, make sure to try one of the following solutions:
- Restart NordVPN;
- Restart your device;
- Clear all internet cache.
The last one often causes trouble, yet it has a very straightforward solution that won’t take more than a minute.
Depending on the internet browser that you are using, clearing your cache can be different, yet it’s a pretty simple process, usually found in your browser’s settings.
Can I Watch Hulu On All of My Devices?
Finally, to answer one last question you might be interested in – yes, you can watch Hulu on all of your devices.
NordVPN supports Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, and iOS devices.
It also has browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox.
If there is some other device that is not on this list, yet you want to use it, you can consider installing NordVPN on your router. That way you will be able to use it on every single device in your house that can be connected to that same Wi-Fi.
I hope you enjoyed this brief tutorial, and that you are already on your way to set up your VPN and start binge-watching Hulu’s most exciting shows.
Hopefully, NordVPN will keep up the good fight and continue providing excellent content from around the world for us passionate streamers and movie addicts.
