Hulu is one of the most popular TV streaming services around. However, unless you reside in the United States or Japan, accessing Hulu is nearly impossible. Fortunately, with a VPN that works with Hulu, you can easily access Hulu content from anywhere in the world.
This article explains step-by-step how to watch Hulu with X-VPN (a Hulu subscription is required).
When you use a VPN, instead of directly connecting to a website, you first establish an encrypted tunnel with a VPN server. All your traffic goes through the encrypted tunnel to the VPN server, then pass into the public Internet. So the public Internet can only see the IP address of the VPN server that you used. This means by connecting to a VPN server from another country, you can make a website think you are in that certain country, and this works for bypassing geographic content restrictions. For example, when you connect to a VPN server in the United States, Hulu.com thinks you‘re accessing the website from the US.
