Hulu is without a doubt one of the best streaming video services available, competing with the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video. However, unlike the former two, Hulu’s main point of difference is that they upload new content a day, or week after it airs. They also offer a variety of popular programming that is unavailable on Netflix, such as Shark Tank, SNL, Rick and Morty. Recently, Hulu has undergone several major changes, making their platform even more impressive.
In this tutorial, we will be showing you how to get Hulu in Canada.
Why is Hulu better than ever?
The first is that Hulu has dramatically cut down on the amount of time spent showing ads.
Second, Hulu has introduced a completely ad-free tier for just a few dollars more than a regular Hulu Plus subscription.
And lastly, Hulu has been expanding it’s content catalog at a rapid pace, nabbing movies like the Hunger Games and Transformers 4 from Netflix.
The Problem – Geographical Blocks
All of this is great, and has made me a huge fan of Hulu. However, there is one big issue.
Hulu, and its premium tier, Hulu Plus, are only available to people in the USA. If you were to try and get Hulu in Canada, or anywhere outside the America, you would be hit with an error like this:
Our website, as you may already know, is dedicated to helping people around the globe get access to the American version of Netflix. This is possible through changing the DNS code on your device.
NetflixDNSCodes helps out by regularly posting lists of working American DNS codes, made specifically for the purposes of getting American Netflix.
One of our more frequent questions is whether our DNS codes will work on services like Hulu, or Hulu Plus. Unfortunately, the DNS codes we post on NetflixDNSCodes will only work for the purposes of accessing American Netflix.
The Solution – Unblock-Us
However, there is a solution to get Hulu in Canada, and it is extremely simple. It requires less than 5 minutes to set up, requires no personal information (credit card info, etc) to sign up, and is absolutely free to use for 7 days.
It’s called Unblock-Us. Unblock-Us offers a similar service to us, in that they provide DNS codes made specifically for the purpose of bypassing geographical blocks. However, Unblock-Us‘ DNS codes will not only to give you access to every region of Netflix (25+ countries and counting), but 500+ other streaming services as well, including Hulu. These DNS codes will also work on any device, whether it be an iDevice, computer, android device, set-top box, and so on.
If you would like to sign up for a free, 7-day trial with no strings attached, click here. The only thing you need is an email. No credit card, or personal information required.
As mentioned before, setting up Unblock-Us on your device should not take more than a few minutes.
1. Click here, and enter your email to sign up for one week of Unblock-Us absolutely free, no personal information required. Alternatively, you can get an entire month for just $0.99 from through here.
2. Visit this page, and pick the device you are using. A guide will open up that shows you how to set up Unblock-Us on your device. These guides essentially show you how to change your normal DNS codes, to the pair that Unblock-Us gives you.
3. After you’ve changed your DNS codes with Unblock-Us’ instructions, go back here. If everything is working, you should see all three bars light up, as shown below
4. Go to Hulu, and start enjoying all the great content.
