Can I use my Hulu account overseas?

Hulu tracks your geographical location, so when you go abroad, the streaming service will not be available to you. A VPN might help you with getting back in touch with Hulu entertainment.

Does Hulu work with a VPN?

Yes, but not all VPN providers know how to circumvent the Hulu firewall – Hulu doesn’t work with every VPN or proxy, for that matter. We recommend using Surfshark for secure streaming that’s not interrupted by proxy errors or faulty VPNs.

Why does Hulu block VPNs?

Because Hulu is available in the US and Japan only, they use geoblocking to make sure people from other countries can’t access the content. They block specific IPs (Internet Protocol addresses) that belong to a certain geolocation. A VPN changes your IP, so Hulu blocks VPNs.

How does Hulu know I’m using a VPN?

The most common answer is Hulu sees its users’ IP addresses. Some of the provided IPs that belong to the VPN get blocklisted by Hulu. Also, if many different accounts try to sign in with the same IP address, Hulu assumes they’re using a VPN or a proxy server (click to learn how to fix the Hulu Proxy error).

Other telltale signs of VPN use are:

  • Documents in your cache and cookies folders might have your original IP. Hulu checks them as its part of the access routine;
  • The GPS location of your device and the IP address don’t match;
  • You might leak your DNS and IP, revealing your actual address without knowing it (due to faulty VPN configurations or cache and cookie folders).

How to fix Surfshark not working with Hulu?

  1. Clear all cache and cookie folders on your device;
  2. Change to a different US location;

This should fix the problem, but ping the Surfshark customer support team if all else fails.
