As you probably know already, Hulu is a great place to watch US TV shows. Also, you know that Hulu is only available for users located in the United States. The problem can be easily overcome by using proxies (cheaper, but not always working) or VPN services (a little bit more expensive). Learn how to watch Hulu without VPN from outside the US.
Today, I found about a trick that makes watching Hulu from outside the US even simpler. A small Firefox plugin modifies one of the HTTP headers and makes Hulu ignore that you are not located in the US.
Here are the steps that need to be done:
Step 1. Install Modify Headers add-on on your Firefox browser.
Step 2. In Firefox, click Tools menu and then Modify Headers. In the new window, type in
X-Forwarded-For the first box,
126.96.36.199 in the second box and leave the third empty. Click Add button.
Step 3. Click on Configuration button and check Always On.
Step 4. Go to Hulu.com and load a video. It should work. It does for me:
Even this is a good news, I don’t believe it will last. In the meanwhile, enjoy!
P.S. If it does work for you and you want to watch Hulu in good conditions you should check these US VPN providers.
