How to Watch Hulu Videos Abroad
According to the Hulu help center, Hulu only streams in the United States, Puerto Rico, and military bases, and in some locations in Japan. The service is not yet available anywhere outside these locations. If you happen to be in one of these areas that don't support playback or are about to go on an extended trip to one of these areas, is there any method to watch Hulu videos abroad?
Next, we'll show you how to download Hulu videos, so as to play them offline without geographical restrictions.
1. Check your Region and Watch Hulu using VPN
First of all, if you are in a region where Hulu video playback is supported, you can go straight to the tutorial for downloading Hulu videos offline. If you're in an area that doesn't support Hulu playback, then you'll need to use a VPN to enable location services on your device and set your country/region preferences to the United States or Japan. With a VPN to locate the US with an American / Japan server, Hulu will think you're in the US.
Step 1. Subscribe to a premium VPN, for VPN selection you can refer to some reviews and choose the one that suits you.
Step 2. Install the VPN app and open the location list.
Step 3. Connect to a server. If you want to access Hulu US, then connect to a US server, or connect to a Japan server
Step 4. Open the Hulu website, and log in with your Hulu account to enjoy your Hulu videos abroad online.
