How to Watch Hulu from outside US without Proxy or VPN

Featured, Unblock Netflix, Hulu, BBC and other channels

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 inX-Forwarded-For the first box, 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 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.

    It works perfectly on Vevo, but it doesn’t stream video in from Hulu. It says I’m out of the US. Well, looks like it isn’t as good as you think.

    No, this trick does not work ! I tried and other ip’s and get message of you are in the USA !

    Another workable tricks ?

    @Brian Murphy – It seems that does not work anymore. It still remains the VPN solution.

    Probably it would have been still working if the guy did not tell that to the public using this web page.
    The guys from Hulu find out that they have a major missing in their security check where the visitors are coming from and they fixed it.
    Revealing secrets to the public does not serve the public, but to their oppressors !

    does not work.

    I use UnoTelly. It’s a specialized way to unblock Hulu and other restrictions. (
    While you can’t do the normal VPN stuffs like anonymous browsing, it’s a lot cheaper than VPN if all you want is to watch Hulu outside USA.
