Being able to access Hulu from Ecuador would be a great thing and it is actually possible. It is not as simple as typing in the website address as it would be if you were in the United States but it’s still not difficult.
So how do you watch American television online from Hulu?
You install a virtual private network on your computer, get an American IP address and then stream the media. This of course is the simplistic version but even the beginner can succeed in this task very easy.
Find a good VPN service provider. You need to find one that offers the right IP address but that also has enough bandwidth and speed to watch American television online. When you have checked out the providers and have chosen the best one, pay for the service to start the installation process. You should be aware that the service providers usually charge between $6 and $20 per month with the average being about $10 per month.
Install the network on your computer as per the instructions on the site. You will be prompted to install the network once you have paid for it. The best sites will have very simple instructions and will lead you through the process.
Visit the Hulu website and browse the catalogue. Yes, you are at that point already where you can stream American television online. There are over a thousand programs listed on the site. With the standard service, you don’t pay anything and you can access five of the most current episodes of each program. In the case that you want to access more, you can sign up for Hulu Plus. This allows you to watch any episodes from all of the seasons available on the site. You can also stream the programs from devices other than your computer. This service costs about $8 per month. You can pay through PayPal, American credit cards and gift cards.
Other than being able to watch Hulu in Ecuador with this changed IP address, you can unblock American websites such as Netflix, Pandora, Spotify and any others that are restricted to use by US IP addresses. You are responsible for finding and using the accepted methods of payments if or when required by certain sites.
You may find that your internet speed decreases with the use of a VPN. This does happen in rare circumstances. If you experience this, disconnect the VPN while streaming. This will allow the media to stream but at the normal speed of connection. OpenVPN still too slow and cutting off streaming stops the video? Try PPTP VPN.
