Couple of days ago we have profiled Hulu, an online service for watching TV show episodes and movies online. It’s a great website, but as it was mentioned before, it’s only available to visitors from within United States. Like with anything on the internet there is always a way around and that’s exactly where Hotspot Shield comes in. This nifty app lets you access and watch Hulu from abroad. At first I thought it would considerably slow down the streaming but that wasn’t the case. So if you want to watch Hulu from outside U.S. this is the app you need. It’s free and works both on Mac and Windows PCs. It doesn’t require any technical skills either.

OpenHulu - Watch Hulu Abroad

Now a bit about OpenShield. Apart from accessing Hulu and other US only sites, this program can be used to secure your internet connection and data when connecting through a public hotspot or any other non-secured wireless network.

    Yes, unfortunately that is case. Hulu has figured out how to block proxy servers like HotSpotshield and there is currently no other way to watch Hulu outside US.

    Hi guys,

    Im from the UK - tried using Hotspot to view Hulu but it doesnt work for me, is there a special process that I need to do first?

    Hotspot works fine for me in the UK. Could an ISP really block it? Couldn't you just change the port? Meanwhile, could unscrupulous file sharers use this program to hide their IP from peers and the RIAA while using torrent networks?

    I have been using UltraSurf with good results. Just have concerns with safety and security when using it.
