ProtonVPN makes it possible to access HD streaming of Hulu shows no matter your location. We offer this as a service to premium users so that they can stream Hulu without compromising their security and privacy. (Note: Hulu streaming with ProtonVPN is only available for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems, not on mobile devices.)
VPN technology protects your Internet connection from spies and hackers and secures your traffic when using public WiFi. Because a VPN creates an encrypted tunnel between your device and the VPN server, it also hides your true IP address from websites and anyone else monitoring the network. The IP address they will see is that of the VPN server. For example, when you connect to a VPN server in the United States, Hulu.com thinks you’re accessing the website from the US.
This article explains step-by-step how to watch Hulu with a VPN.
1. Get a ProtonVPN Plus or Visionary subscription
If you already have a Plus or Visionary ProtonVPN account, you can skip to step 2.
If you’re a new user, you can sign up for ProtonVPN here.
If you have a Free or Basic plan, you can upgrade by logging into your account here and selecting Plus or Visionary from your account Dashboard.
2. Buy a Hulu subscription
To watch Hulu, you’ll need a Hulu subscription. Hulu offers the first month free and $7.99 per month (with limited commercials) or $11.99 per month (with no commercials) after that. You can also get Hulu with Live TV, which gives you live access to American television programming on over 50 channels for $39.99 per month, with the first week free.
3. Clear your browser cache
Sometimes your browser cache may contain information about your location. Here’s how to clear your cache in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers.
In Chrome, click on More -> More tools -> Clear browsing data. Choose the time range “All time”. Make sure “Cookies and other site data” and “Cached images and files” are selected. Then click on Clear data.
In Firefox, click on the menu button -> Preferences and go to the Privacy & Security panel. In the “Cached Web Content” section, click on Clear Now.
In Safari, click on Safari -> Preferences and go to the Advanced tab. Check the box next to “Show Develop menu in menu bar”. Then close the Preferences window and click on Develop -> Empty Caches.
4. Install our VPN app and connect to any US Plus server
You need to download the ProtonVPN app for your operating system. Hulu streaming is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux devices.
To watch Hulu, click on Connect next to any United States server marked with a “P” icon.
5. Start watching Hulu with your VPN!
Now you’re ready to safely stream Hulu shows with ProtonVPN. What’s more, ProtonVPN also enables you to stream Netflix, sporting events (like football and F1 racing), and other programming around the world.
